I have been giving the new Lodge cast iron pan a good work out. Made these great grilled cheese sandwiches for lunch. Using the press the results were more than pleasing, crunchy on the outside and soft and gooey inside.

Ribs were good too, and the chicken legs were chard outside and still moist inside. Good investment me thinks, mind you I will have to start doing weights again, bloody heavy lifting it sure. Good thing I did not get the 16 inch job.

Nice light snow last evening, and more overnight, no warming trend please.

On the shipping news front; no news is usually good news. Alas in our case no news of the Bond arriving at Lewisport is bad news.
Word is the Bond was still sitting in St. John.s as of last evening.

Twenty five days and counting since we last had freight from Lewisport. The Astron is in Goose Bay loading for who knows where and the Bond is awaiting federal inspection.
Sort of puts all that bullshit [guaranteed two week turn around] that spews out of the minster of transports mouth in perspective. No MSM types have taken him to task for that really.

Still do not know where she is headed; 

Saturday, Nov. 26th

Currently in Goose Bay -holding due to winds 40 knots.  Estimating to leave Sunday, Nov. 27th

Latest is:
Saturday, Nov. 26th
Currently in Goose Bay -holding due to winds 40 knots.  Estimating to leave Sunday, Nov. 27th.
Next ports of call:  Rigolet, Nain, Natuashish, Hopedale, Postville and Makkovik

That will make it well over a month that any freight from Lewisport made it to Nain. Weather and ice permitting and leaving aside the Bond making it passed the inspection.

Nice looking frying pan you have there.

The pan sure is getting some use, eclectic too, makes a good weight for gluing things.
