      I will be/have been very busy in a benchmark hunting contest.  I was in first place point-wise for a short time and am now almost tied I think.  Going out tomorrow, Gonzales area (no more to find within an hour's drive), to do another full day.  I have now found over 400 benchmarks...
      I will be very glad when this month is over...  gas is getting too expensive....

      Actually, I would have thought that guy was me but I never have had the patience to slow-roast a marshmallow (or wiener).  I just poke it in the fire (talking about the marshmallow here...) and let it go up in flames and blow it out (if necessary) to prevent it from burning up the stick!  I think they melt the chocolate (on the SMORE) better when they are  black and bubbly!
      Gonna do that next week-end, by the way, in Bass Drop State Park :D  Goin' campin' in the tent for four days and living on fish we catch or coconuts / bananas we pick.  I guess if we get too hungry we can always barge in on Doc Geo :)

      It was on the shores of Lake Shakamak, Indiana, where I encountered my
      first flaming marshmallow. I was maybe five or six years old, sitting
      cross-legged in front of a lazy fire, wearing baggy kid’s shorts. You
      know the kind— the ones with gaping leg holes wide enough for an

      For an hour or so I had been busy perfecting the fine art of roasting
      marshmallows: positioning them just so on a sharpened stick, not placing
      any two with touching sides, rotating them SLOWLY as they turned a
      bubbly golden brown, little by little. Much to my angst, one nasty
      fellow caught fire.

      My sister, Pat shouted: "Quick, Tim… blow it OUT!"

      In a sheer state of panic, I puffed on the marshmallow flambé. It
      slipped off the end of the stick and plunged like a smoldering meteorite
      right through one of those elephant-short’ s leg holes, glowing softly as
      it sizzled smack dab in the center of my tiny bare crotch.

      I haven’t roasted a marshmallow since.
