Is This A Boy Scout Badge? Build A Canoe. Immediately Sink It. – 7.11.19

Is This A Boy Scout Badge? Build A Canoe. Immediately Sink It.  Who thinks this is a good idea? Two Utah Scout groups who made their own canoes from PVC pipe and tarp – you heard me – launched them on the Green River for a rapids river trip. The first one sank 100 feet from the launch site. It just gets better… or worse, depending on your point of view.

 

Today’s summer salad? Warm German Potato Salad with stone ground mustard and bacon. Freaking amazing. Have you missed any of our other tasty summer salads? Like watermelon and balsamic vinegar? How about corn and cotija cheese? Strawberry and spinach?

 

Think Salt Lake City is hot now? There’s a scary new global study out that says we’ll be hotter than Las Vegas by 2050. The last time I was there, it was 115 in May. This is bad news.

Tasty St. Patrick’s Day Dinners – 3.14.19

Tasty St. Patrick’s Day Dinners & Never Tick Off Your Dogs At The Iditarod. St. Patrick’s Day is Sunday- and every semi- Irish/Scottish/British… uh… everyone is celebrating, let’s be honest. Take notes- we have Cooking With Todd and the Toddler for traditional corned beef and cabbage with Mary Helen’s Magnificent Mustard Sauce.

The scuffle between Russell Westbrook from the Oklahoma Thunder with a racist fan at the Utah Jazz game has the “fan” banned for life. But we’re being labeled as the “Most racist basketball fans in America.” Does that seem fair?

Outfitting kids for Prom for free and letting them save their money for college- you’ll never believe who’s doing it.

 

And never, EVER hurt your sled dog’s feelings during the Iditarod Race- they apparently hold a grudge.

IamSkippy Meets Up With Toby Maguire, Demi Moore & Ray Romano At Sundance Film Festival. The midwest has more or less folded up like a card table because the HIGH today in Chicago is 15 below zero. That’s the high. And in Minneapolis, the wind chill is 58 degrees below zero. It’s colder than Siberia. We’ll check in with friends to see if they’re surviving.

(Editor’s note: this is my girlfriend Lynda in Chicago, who is wearing her Russian tank commanders hat with the flaps down. So you know this is serious weather.)

 

Meanwhile, Skippy, our excitable ginger and celebrity correspondent is up at the Sundance Film Festival with the likes of Toby Maguire, Demi Moore and Ray Romano. Have a look.

(By the way, for all of our excitable ginger Skippy’s celebrity reports, head here, here, and here.)
