Christmas Dinner Take 2

This was the picture that was supposed to accompany the last post.

Christmas Dinner

None of us had ever cooked a prime rib before. And to be honest I have never really thought it was as cracked up as most people say it is. Luckily for us I ran into a complete stranger at the store who suggested a recipe he had great success with.

He said to Google "Prime Rib Salted" and it would be the first result. We did like he said and it turned out to be the best, most juicy prime rib I've ever had. Just season, cake with koser salt, and cook for 4-5 hours.

So good.

Some fog over the Kinik Arm on my way north.

Christmas Spirit

I stopped at the Fred Meyer in Wasilla, on my way to Talkeetna, to pick a few last minute things for dinner tomorrow. We're going to try and make prime rib.

Even though the parking lot is crazy and the store is packed everyone was friendly and had a smile on their face. It must be the season.

Shortest Day of the Year

Taken on the corner of F and 8th (across the street from the office) looking west on the Solstice.

I thought this was a nice 5:00 pm sunset one the way downtown to meet some friends.

Solstice Moon

Last night I met a friend from work at an old air strip in town to take pictures of the lunar eclipse. This is one of the pictures Jeff got before the clouds slipped in to ruin the view.

One thing I noticed,at least for me, was that the moon didn't look red until I viewed it through some sort of optics like the camera or binoculars.

What is cool about this eclipse is that it marks the shortest day of the year in the northern hemisphere. Pretty soon we'll be back to the long darkness days of summer.

This morning I went to see TRON Legacy at Alaska's only IMAX theatre over by the Target near the Air Force base. Everyone should see this movie. The bigger the screen the better. Disney did a good job with this one and Jeff Bridges is awesome.

I tried to get the mountains in the background but the building is just to big.

Yep, It's winter. I live on the warm side of town but it probably dropped to negative double digits on the East side this morning.

Another reason to love Alaska

This was taken at the BP Energy Center in Anchorage just after our ASPE meeting. BP is considerate enough to warn you about possible moose trampling situations. I've been waiting about two years to get an actual moose in the same picture as the warning sign.

This is the second post from my phone. Looks like I might have figured out the picture thing!

First post from smart phone.

So... I finally broke down and own a smart phone and I'm trying to figure out how to post a picture on here. Technology is crazy! This little phone is more powerful and faster then my first computer. It also has 8 times more memory! And that memory is the size of my pink fingernail!

Now how do I get these pictures to post?
