Back in 2007 I noticed a super deal on a Lego Christmas Train that they were phasing out, I bought one for future use come Christmas time. I have tried to put it together a few times, but always got lost when it came to fitting a certain couple of pieces in their set location. I pulled it out again in early December to put together for our decorating spree and once again was reminded why I had not finished putting it together. After a while of just not location the 1×2 red flat brick I decided I would visit their website and try to determine if I could order the missing pieces.

This machine was initially setup using the Debian 2.2 potato release and was upgraded using the dist-upgrade method and changing the sources to point to the current release at the time.

Instead of purchasing a pre-made salad dressing, we whip up a simple Balsamic Vinaigrette consisting of:
- Splash of Balsamic Vinegar
- Larger splash of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- A dollop of Dijon Mustard
- A pinch of Pecorino Romano cheese (sheeps milk, not cow milk)
Whisk it up and pour immediately over a salad.

I picked up our quarter beef last week from our meat farm share. This is grass fed and finished free of antibiotics and hormone supplements and all that bad stuff.
