Wednesday Wanderings VI

I am tired tonight with a little residual jet lag. It has actually been a fairly relaxing day, even though it has not gone as planned.

Old Blue - Pontiac G6 GXP - 100000 milesOld Blue is not in the garage tonight. I took it in today for an oil change and it needed much more work. Instead I have a courtesy vehicle in my garage tonight since the work will not be completed until tomorrow.

I have been driving a Chevy Trax today. It is nice to sit a little higher, but there are definitely some missing features. Like some power 🙂 Also, I was trying to figure out how to use the cruise control until I realized it didn’t have it. The courtesy vehicle is a very basic model.

I do however like the fact that it is a bit shorter so have a bit more room in the garage. Hopefully though I can drive Old Blue for another year or so.

Patent US5779532, Chicken Wings, Nando's, Macquarie CentreWednesday night is Bible Study night. At our study tonight I was talking to one of my friends about Chicken Ribs. He may try and figure out how to make them.

There is a pretty good description in the US Patent 5779532 about how they are cut.

Nando's Chicken Ribs - BBQ Chicken Ribs - Two Fork Chicken MethodI hope he can figure them out as they are indeed an interesting eating experience. Very unique.

Chickens, Woodpile, jena, Germany, countrysideOf course this makes me think of chickens and here are some German chickens checking out a woodpile. See: German Farm Animals

Red Chickens, White Chicken, Hen House, Chicken CoopOK, so here are some more chickens. However, these are happy California chickens. See: Chicken Coops II

Now for some sleep before braving my commute in the morning in an unfamiliar vehicle. However, it will be a good test for what my next car will be. I am thinking that sitting higher in traffic will be a benefit. The Chevy Trax may not be the car I buy next, but it will help answer some questions as to what I want.

Chicken Coops II

This morning my friends gave me some eggs to take home, so I thought of the pictures I will be sharing in this post. I took them a couple weeks ago while they were showing me their new chickens.

As you can see from the title of this post I have written an earlier post about Chicken Coops.

Chicken Coop, Country Living, Chickens, EggsHere is the chicken coop with a nice place for the chickens to get outside and run about. There is a nice covering of chicken wire to protect them from airborne predators.

Red Chickens, White Chicken, Hen House, Chicken CoopHere we see most of the new chickens along with a white chicken that they previously had.

Chicken Nest, Eggs, Four eggs, straw, nesting boxWe had also gone out to collect eggs and they were easy to find as the chickens have been laying them in the nesting boxes.

Egg Basket, eggs, woven basket, brown eggs, country eggsHere are the eggs all in one little basket. They are nice big brown eggs and they are a good size for scrambled or fried eggs.

Chicken Coop, Hen House, Eggs, ChickensHere are all the chickens together inside the chicken coop or hen house. In this case they are all hens.
