Ate A Bulldog

The family went to the Duke of Edinburgh Pub & Restaurant tonight and I ordered a Bulldog on the menu. What's a Bulldog? It's English bangers (pork sausage) smothered with grilled onions on a sesame seed bun. This was my first time eating bangers and it wasn't bad except now I have to workout extra hard tomorrow.

For those of you who were concerned about my dog Maverick, he's almost back to normal now. After the vet gave him a Prednisone shot, he stopped shaking and hyperventilating almost immediately.

In the picture above, Maverick is back to looking out the window for squirrels "trespassing" along our fence line. The second picture is the steep stairway in our house. We suspect when no one was home he might have fallen down these stairs when he saw something out of the 2nd story window he wanted to chase. Why do we think this? He's been hesitant on going down the stairs unless it is absolutely necessary in his mind.

Glad to hear that Maverick is doing better and it is nice to see a pic of him (he is cute, too). And, bangers, I have never heard of that. I like sausage so I would imagine that I would be down for a taste. Sounds rare but, I will be on the lookout.

p.s. we may be in Palo Ato this weekend- barcamp (free, ad hoc conference). You'll should come check it out!

Scott, I'm not into Fish & Chips, so it was either Bangers or Shepard's Pie.

What is a barcamp? I picture people doing high tech networking at a bar.

LOL, nah, man, sounds like, though, huh. It's a free conference for people to meet up and network. Do a google search for barcamp (palo alto this weekend) and you'll see. We are heading out in a couple of hours so we will be in the Bay area later tonight, ready for tomorrow and Sunday. Come check it out if you'll want, it's really cool and laid back.

Yeah, I did a Wiki on it and found out what it was. Unfortunately or fortunately, we got some tickets to the State Fair this weekend and will be heading north. I want to hear about your Barcamp weekend. Drive safely!
