Speed Sign, mind refresher and Mr C's on fb

- I switched on the morning news yesterday as I was eating my oatmeal and caught this video just as the man comes into view to stand by the sign. Imagine my initial surprise and alarm. Turns out he was the special guest of "commuter dude" on WXIA-TV Channel 11 with his video gone viral. :)

- This recipe for Creamy Polenta with Mushroom Sauce has the delightful addition of a "Mind Refresher" at the end with the instruction to: "Stand straight, breathe normally, and reflect on patience while stirring the polenta."

- Spotting Mr C's Bar and Grille on facebook and this message: Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.

Talk about taking a bite out of crime! That's hilarious.

Granny Annie said...

That video got me. I almost didn't stay to the end. Great!

I have never made polenta but my sister does. I'll have to make sure she receives that added instruction.

So many people will love that quote. Actually I believe it should read "Wine is proof....."

TALON said...

That's one way to deal with speeders - lol!

Like the polenta quote - I think it also applies to risotto. :)

Yes it is about time they took out some of the really bad speeders.

Polenta with beer, Okay
Beer with Polenta, Okay
Polenta with Polenta, So, so
Beer with Beer, GREAT

Fabulous video!! When I read the recipe I thought of computer games that tell you to get up and take a break from time to time.

Jannie Funster said...

AMEN on the beer quote!

And I love the cooking advice, great for many situations.


Cookie said...

That video made me laugh out loud!
And I love the beer quote :)
How do you keep coming up with the good stuff?!

Maude Lynn said...

And, who am I to argue with God?

Riot Kitty said...

How does this compare to the polenta recipe I sent? I am always one to try new stuff.

Lynn said...

FB -

I'm glad you liked it. :)

Granny Annie -

I'm with you on the wine.

Talon -

I'll say!

Ellis -

Beer with beer - I like the sound of that. :)

Lynn -

I'm glad you liked it - it takes a couple a few moments to get to the point.

Jannie -

Yes - very Zen. :)


Cookie -

It's not easy some days - that is why facebook can be such a good source.

MZ -


Riot Kitty -

I haven't actually made either one. I wish I had some time to stay home and cook. I actually just got home about an hour ago. And I need to go to bed since I have to get up early. Oh poor me. :)

Snaggle Tooth said...

I'll see the video in a few days. Never had polenta, or risotto. I live a guarded menu life... Mr C's found a way to put up funny signs online, I see!

Lynn said...

Snaggle -

I was delighted to find the Mr C's humor on facebook - their outside sign is so lackluster these days. I think the employee who did that must have moved on.

LL Cool Joe said...

That was obviously set up! :D I could see and hear it coming! Good fun though.

Lynn said...

Joe -

True - I am not a morning person exactly and was a little bleary-eyed when I turned the news on. The film had the guy talking beside that sign - which I see in other places. Traffic monitored by aircraft - I've wondered about that. And then the explosion. Whaaat??? I was so pleased to see it was set up. :)

Snaggle Tooth said...

Just saw it! Very funny- cus I know it isin't real-

Lynn said...

Snaggle -

I'm glad you got to see it. :)
