I think I tried to do too much this weekend and now I am out of gas and have to go back to work tomorrow. Large BBQ cooks, kayak fishing and yard work were all in play this weekend. Just a few items for the holiday Monday.
Readers should be aware that I am a big fan of gold and silver and hold physical metals. Anyone who does own metals or anyone who thinks they are a waste of time would do well to check out the lively debate between Zero Hedge contributor Gordon Gekko and Market Ticker author Karl Denninger. Nothing quite like two smart guys going at it in the blogosphere!

Listen to the Hucksters, Lose Your Ass
Last night I dialed up some OnDemand and watched "The Road":
The film is based on a novel by Cormac McCarthy, who also penned "No Country for Old Men".
This movie is brutal. It hurts to watch this film. I would recommend it, but you need to know it is a rough film. Even today I am thinking about it and how powerful it was. Add to this some crazy forest fires in Quebec are causing enough smoke to be blown all the way down here in Massachusetts and my eyes are killing me. Bad omen perhaps!
Right now we have the Gulf Oil Spill which continues to be worse than thought, the Quebec fires, and Israel doing all kinds of things (Submarines off coast of Iran, storming ships from Turkey). Everything just seems a big mess right now.
Cooking on the Keg
On Saturday I made twp racks of babyback ribs and 30 MOINKS (meatballs wrapped in bacon). I usually take pictures but I forgot this time as I was doing too many things all at once. Sorry!
I did a simple cook today, just some cheeseburgers and hot dogs. Nothing too exciting:
Here they are about done. In this picture you can see the top grate that swings out for extra cooking space. I used it to toast the buns (go ahead and focus on that line in the comments!):
They were very good!
Here was Friday's cook; a huge Porterhouse steak for me (I had not eaten all day, was on the kayak all day!) and a couple of filet mignons for the wife and mom in law:
See, variety. Meat, some meat, and then some meat, HA!
I am not ready to go back to work. At least it will already be Tuesday.
Have a good night.
