I’m curious about how this thread turned to boating, sailing, and stock car racing!!
Congratulations, Sundancer. I’ve enjoyed so many of your posts that have led to red-stardom.
Congratulations! Just thought I should warn you, tho, I’m gaining on you fast. I just doubled my number of posts in less than a minute.
Sundancer, ok, was just curious as I am a drag racing fan, mostly interested in class racing (Stock, Super Stock) and the street car stuff that is so big nowadays.
Btw, my okra is starting to really take off; how’s yours doing?
JDG68: Racing is suppose to be a business and we are suppose to make money, but we seldom do. My real job is licensed immunhematologist in the state of Tennessee and I am director of operations for a pharmaceutical firm.
I do not drive the car we own. I am too old. Reaction time is everything. We have a driver that is 25 years old and is quick.

Hi Jennifer 4…nice to hear from you again. What you did is very admirable and I ought to follow your example. But the serious healthy eating will start after my honeymoon ends August 28. I already have the gym membership-I just need to spend more time working out than internet surfing!
Sundancer, just curious: what class do you race in (drag). Is this your/part of your job?
You da King Sundancer!
Does your mother welcome strangers????
Flying fish are mild flavored, with litle filets that separate easily from the bones when they are cooked. They are a little like mackerel, but less oily and not as strongly flovored. I sailed a lot in the Pacific and dont ever remember seeing any flying fish out there – maybe the weather conditions were just not right…
I can attest to the fact that Sundancer’s mother is "dear", as he indicated above. I fell in love with her immediately, and I would have proposed if I thought my wife would have approved.
I also can tell you that I thoroughly loved the time I spent with Sundancer.
I see that Elise has overtaken me, and I congratulate you, Dear One. I also see that Jennifer has peeked back in, and I hope you’ll spend more time at the library, Jenne.
Just got back today, and I’ll be starting a thread on my trip.
Congrats, Paul, on your Top Dog status. As I told you in Knoxville, I’ve always loved your stories of your family and your travels. Keep it up.
1,500 should be scrapple. 2,000 should be CFS. 2,500 should be the navajo taco. 3,000 the almighty garbage plate.
Congrats on the 1000 level!!!! Well, here I am on a public computer, just stopping in to say howdy! We got rid of our internet access at home and got a family gym membership instead. I am currently eating healthier during the week, HOWEVER let me make clear that I am still roadfooding locally on the weekends, I’ll never give that up! Much love to Paul, the Mayor, Bushie, J & M, and all the rest. Miss you guys!
What do flying fish taste like? Are they oily? What fish would you liken them to?
In the Caribbean after a windy night we could pick up flying fish off the deck. If the cooks were in a good mood (rarely) they would fry them up for us without a bribe – usually something had to be exchanged. They
were great breakfast fare.
Once in Barbados, at the Star hotel on the habor in Bridgetown a bumboat came up to the window with a bunch of flying fish. We bought them and asked the kitchen to cook them up. They came to us beautifully sauted, stuffed with very hot peppers. I think this was my first experience with anything very hot and I have favored just mildly hot ever since.
