You could cheat

I made Paella tonight. before we do this again, I need to find out what the Spanish words for “mild chorizo”. That way, Renee can have more than about 1/2 a serving.

Ray was pretty good tonight, but Jacob has started being extra grumpy, as is his wont, around 8.

Other than that, today went well – I *FINALLY* got the DB/2 download I needed, and discovered that, lo and behold! it works on windows, and shits itself on Linux. Great. When I have a spare week, I’ll debug the problem and send it to their support folks.

DB/2 is typically less painful than oracle, but not this time.

OK, off to investigate Windows Data wipe programs.

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.

    This was really good, but the chorizo was too hot for Renee. So I have to find a mild version for next time.

    You may have to travel a little but if you can find one of the old kind of butcher shops, either they can make it for you or know where you can get it in whatever form you want. I used to work for a custom butcher up in Northern Virginia and we had Hispanic customers that came in for chorizo all the time so we made it to order. You could also go the route of buyin chorizo spices and mixing your own sausage, That way, when you find the right mixture, you can duplicate it anytime you want.

    I have many pounds of homemade ground chili and also the dried chilis, if you want, I can send you soem free of charge. We usually make our from venison but the pork sausage is good too.

    There is a very good butcher about 10 miles down the road. I might have to give them a try.

    Just email me an address if you want some. [email protected]

    Two otehr friends and I grow about 15 varieties of chillis every year. We have over 150 plants so on a daily basis in July, we literally harvest pounds of them each day. Most of them we dry and then grind together to make some really interesting chili powders which we then sell at roadside produce stands.
