I asked the blogger if they would pass my email address on to him and today I got a response. Wow. I haven't seen or talked to this guy since about 1980 or so. We were great friends back then, chasing girls and generally raising a little hell, all in good fun.
I'm really looking forward to catching up on what's been going on in his life as well as his family.
A real blast from the past...

This is awesome. If you put this on your head your tongue will beat your brains out trying to get to it.
WHITE CHOCOLATE & CINNAMON BANANA CREAM PIE
Why you need to build this:
This pie is low fat, very low sugar and if you don’t tell anyone they’ll never know. It’s perfect for your friends that can’t have much sugar in their diets. And it’s tasty!!
Gather your tools:
Bill of Material:
1 cup Graham Cracker crumbs
½ stick of real butter
6 of those little paper packets of Splenda
1 ½ banana
1 ½ cups cold fat-free milk
2 pkgs. (4 oz.) Jell-o White Chocolate Fat Free Sugar Free Instant pudding
½ to ¾ tsp ground cinnamon
8 oz. tub of Cool Whip Sugar Free whipped topping
Some Assembly Required:
Melt the butter in the microwave. Put the Graham cracker crumbs and Splenda into the pie pan and pour the butter over the top. Mix it completely then press it up the sides and into the bottom. Slice the bananas into medallions about ¼” to 3/8” thick and install one layer thick on the crust.
In a large mixing bowl add the milk, pudding mix and cinnamon. Stir with your whisk for a minute or so. It gets thick quickly. Gently stir in the Cool Whip. Spoon the mixture over the bananas.
Refrigerate for 4 hours or so.
Tips and Notes:
The easier you stir in the Cool Whip, the fluffier your pie will be.

We stayed at the Marriott across from the convention center and I must comment about their excellent customer service. I would recommend that hotel except for one thing. The beds SUCK!!! I haven't slept for a week.
I may blog more on this later but for now I'm too tired.
Did I mention that it snowed on us last night?
I love Florida...

This morning here in north central Florida we are experiencing a phenomena that is unique to our area, and that is "liquid sunshine". It's bright and sunny this morning but it's raining. The first time I experienced this I thought I was in the twilight zone. I was driving down the Turnpike headed for Orlando, window down, tunes blasting and something wet hit my arm. Of course I thought some bird had made a deposit but the fluid was clear. What the?!?!? Then came the drops on the windshield. I had to look up into the bright clear sky to be sure I wasn't hallucinating.
It's a bit wild...
