Trivial Pursuit, The men are headed for the middle and victory!

This year Allison and I attended a very nice New Year’s Eve get together with our friends. The party was hosted by Derek and Michelle. Their friend Mike came and so did Derik and Sarah and Neil and Andrea. Michelle made a great Taco ring from the Pampered Chef line. It was very tasty. Derek burned our tongues to cinders with a couple drops of some cheese dip laced with some crazy hot, hot sauce (Dave’s Insanity Sauce). My taste buds were fried for a little while. I made two racks of pork ribs that had been in the crock pot slow cooking all day long. When the pieces were removed from the crock pot the bones fell right off the meat.

Coco gets close to the action, or at least the camera.

As Neil can attest to, because by the time he arrived the crock pot contained many bones and a mere hint of the meat that had been on them.

As the night continued we pulled out the 20th Anniversary Edition of Trivial Pursuit and took up the banners of guys vs. girls. Please note, that in a most sexist manner the boys took the blue piece and the ladies the pink. Also note that our pie was full. That’s what happens when you get five brains full of useless knowledge working in unison.

<p>The photo here is of the other party attendee Coco, as in Coco Puff. Derek and Michelle’s dog. Coco enjoyed the <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00005YXUM/002-6017979-2520840?ie=UTF8&tag=flatwaterbook-20&linkCode=xm2&camp=1789&creativeASIN=B00005YXUM">Trivial Pursuit</a> game too.</p>
<p>Well, 2004 is off to a start. Allison says it will be a good year for us, I tend to agree. Please check back in with us to see how the year progresses and we hope that you and your family have a safe, happy and healthy New Year too.</p>
