    Big news for me. Wife and I have had our house on the market for 7 days as of today and it is now off the market since we accepted an offer this morning. I will be moving about mid February from the looks of things.

    mostly stock
    • 1 pound Bacon
    • 1 can Chunked Pineapple (large Chunks)
    • ½ cups Brown Sugar
    Cut the pound of bacon in half. Put the brown sugar in a shallow bowl. Take a half a slice of bacon and dredge it through the brown sugar. Put a chunk of pineapple on one end of the bacon slice and roll up. Secure with a toothpick.
    I put tinfoil on a cookie sheet. Lay the bacon pineapple bundles onto the foil.
    Bake for at least 25 minutes, or until the bacon looks brown and crispy. Sometimes I pop them under the broiler for the last few minutes just to get them really crisp. But watch out – the sugar will burn!
    Try to wait for them to cool slighty – only because the tasty goodness will burn your lips if it’s too hot! Enjoy.



    You can also use little smokies instead of pineapple for real meat candy.

    Converting Euro vegans with meat could have gone in a completely different direction!

    And wtf is the deal with the Gordini?! Finished both stages only because someone towed him and hours behind the leader...

    Fawk.. Went to the dealership by my parents in Rhode Island looking for some coolant, drove aroundback to see five 1st and 2nd Gen beds and about 20 new frames in the rear parking lot..

    Swung back in to see what it was about; apparently Toyota us doing another voluntary frame recall (actually had a 2000 SR5 that was bought back a few years ago)..

    Service Manager threw my rig up on the lift to check it out, figured I might as well since I was there. Great guy, we actually inspected it together - as I expected, no issues. Pretty funny to see the reaction of the sales/service staff when you show up with a heavily modified rig..

    Pretty horrendous, took a look at an '06 that they were replacing the frame on - literally had holes in the inner frame behind the catalytic converters, heavy SCALE (it's different than surface rust..). Literally looked like a 25 year old truck that had been dipped in salt water.

    Manager said they've done about 450 frames, between Tacomas and Tundras.

    Really, really glad I'm on the Left Coast now.

    Lol. Left coast. That's amazing about all of the frame problems. Well it still doesn't chase me away from Toyota.

    I agree; they're owing up to it.

    They already bought a 2000 SR5 back from me when I lived out here, due to the rust recall..

    Got $15,580 for a truck I paid $9k for.

    If I was living out here again, and was getting the frame replaced, I'd have it blasted, zinc primered, and painted with a marine two part epoxy.

    Oh, good times were had by all I assure you that lol.

    RG didn't test his car, like usual. I think he has so much going on he really doesn't have the time to test any of his cars. It was a foolish move, and he will not learn from it at all. I also think it will really hurt his sales to civilians as well, but what can you do.

    I thought he got at least some testing in with it. You would think someone with his experience would understand how insanely important testing and prep is. Doesn't look like there will be any Americans on the podium this year. :( Baldwin just isn't stepping it up. Can't expect him to do amazing his first year out though.
