Notes

I had to bribe a friend into coming over and hooking up all my electronic crap recently.... he promised and backed out and promised again... hubby says WHAT'S IT GONNA TAKE... he says I DUNNO- DINNER?....... done.... this is what I made, along with some nice shrimp cocktails and french bread dipped in EVOO, with a sliver of good Brie, then toasted under the broiler for a few. YUMMY!!! It worked, as now do the stereo, DVR and PS3!
