Collecting Band Organ Parts

February - My latest addition to all of my many inventions around the house is something that brings me great pleasure - I have begun collecting the needed parts to build my own band organ.

In Search of Sushi

Sunday, February 11th, 2001
What do you do when you have a craving for Sushi and the nearest Sushi bar is 70 miles away?  Exactly. I decided to roll my own!

After visiting one web site to learn how to cook Japanese rice and another to learn how to prepare a California  Roll, I was ready to begin.

Equipped with a plastic bucket for the rice, my supplies, and the printed instructions from the Internet, I set off to make my homemade Sushi rolls.  (Fortunately, I had thought ahead and purchased the Japanese rice, Nori rolls, and imitation crab meat at Pavilions a week ago.)

By the time this adventure was done, it cost as much to purchase the supplies and took as long to prepare the Sushi as if I had simply driven the 70 miles to Santa Clarita.

I guess I won't be opening the first Sushi bar in the mountains, but it did satisfy my craving.
