My first BBQ compition
Most all who know me know how much I like to BBQ...eating, cooking talking about ect. Some friends of mine decided they wanted to enter a BBQ competition and also decided that they better ask the Ashman to do the cooking!! I was like...well I'don't know if....SHOOOOOT YEAH!! LOl

6am Friday out to the site set up our equipement. 10am over to the meat place to pick up our meat. Sit around all day as friends and family stop by to wish us well and partake in the precompitition cooking. 6pm Friday evening the committee came through inspected our raw unprepared meats. Dinner cooked and eaten started building my fires up to get the briskets on. We did 3 briskets, 3 pork spare rib rack and 4 whole chickens. Pot of Chili and Two kinds of Beans.

Long story a little shorter...

We didn't win anything...insert Ashman lip tremble... but we had a great time!! I learned a lot form this. I had never cooked on this pit, nor had I ever cooked this much meat at once. Even though the food may not have won or looked all that pretty on the plate... it damn well tasted good!! I for-see more competitions in my future!!

This pit currently belongs to my friend but she is going to sell it to me!! WHOOT!!

My chickens and briskets!!

Tragedy has struck in the Stoneking household gentle reader!!
My beloved digital camera, Max (aka Maxxum 5D) has slipped from the grasp of this mortal existence and gone on to that great photo shop in the sky!! And to my great dismay tis I that caused this tragedy!!

The Dets'

While shooting photos Wednesday I didn't like the lighting I was getting so instead of going around the river I decided to go through it. Now many of you fine folks know that da Ashman is not born to gracefulness! DUH! So dis big ol fella trying to cross a river with big ol boots on was a disaster waiting to happen. Yes, kiddies da Ashman fallith!! Face first no less!!

Poor Max was pronounced "fried" by the photo Doc 1:30pm Thursday April 2nd 2008.
Max leaves behind his beloved father, a film cousin Maxxum 7 and assorted other relatives!
He will be dearly missed!

In lieu of flowers the family graciously requests you take a picture in his honor and post it in your LJ!

LJ Strike

The one-day content strike is on for this Friday, March 21, from midnight GMT to midnight GMT. Here that translates to Thursday, March 20, 5:00 PM -

For 24 hours, we will not post or comment to LJ. Not in our own journals, not in communities. Not publicly, privately, or under friends-lock.

Why? Because the new owners of LJ said they were going to listen to a user driven advisory board before making any changes, and didn't. They instead tried to take away all GLBT related interest groups, and were about to take away all free, ad free accounts as well and make LJ paid. Basic/free users help drive this site! And paid or not, our interests should not be dictated to us.

Apparently paid ads for "curing" homosexuality are appearing in the free journals of queer folk, while ads for "curing" autism are appearing in the journals of Aspergers people. WTF, people?

* again, this is normal for a regular business, but utterly preposterous for a business built specifically around the idea of community.

(italicized text courtesy of </a></font></b></a></a></font></b></a>epilady )

This is a protest that will have long-lasting effects, showing up forever in the daily posting statistics.

This is a protest that will not harm LJ in the long run, as leaving LJ might do.

This is a protest that will demonstrate the power of community, as all users unite to support Basic users and the concept of ad-free space.

This is a protest that will educate the new owners that LJ is driven by user-created content.

Content Strike Friday March 21, from midnight to midnight GMT

* We are holding the Content Strike because we want to demonstrate that LiveJournal is content-driven.
* We are holding the Content Strike because we want the new owners of LiveJournal to better understand the power and resolve of the LJ Community of Users.
* We are holding the Content Strike because all of us, Paid, Permanent and Plus users as well as Basic, want to demonstrate our solidarity as a Community of Users. We do not consider Basic users to be freeloaders, we consider them to be valuable content-providers and Friends.
* We are holding the Content Strike because we ache to do something to show our displeasure, and commenting on the news post -- even with cat macros -- just isn't powerful enough!


The strike has three terms:

1. Restore basic accounts for new account creation.
2. Inform users before any change to the site that affects how we use the site or demands on our resources.
3. Run change proposals by the Advisory Board and take their advice into account before implementation of any change.

Thursday, March 20, 2:00 PM -- Honolulu
