Re: Motor Homes

To: Carol Bishop Horne ('47)

Congratulations on your purchase of a motor home. Some of my best
memories are related to motor home travelling.

My best memory was driving down the Baja pulling a Jeep. (the worst
part was getting thru Tijuana). Anyway, if you are an adventure
traveller, keep this one in mind. 

There are many small towns on the way to LaPaz, my favorite place. 
I used to check out all the small town bakeries that I could find. 
There is the best beach at LaPaz that I have ever found and is out 
by the Ferry Terminal. 

On our first trip down, we ran into a flooded out bridge and the only
way across was to be pulled by a Mexican tractor. That was pretty
scary but turned out fine.

And I don't remember paying any camp site fees until we got to LaPaz,
which was nice!!

And it is also a great place to explore other parts of the Baja, like
Cabo San Lucas, San Jose del Cabo and many other places. It is a
wonderful place for fishing if you enjoy that kind of thing.

One bad memory that is really fresh in my mind after all these years 
is making lunch while driving and leaving the cabinet door open that 
held the dishes. All of a sudden, they were all on the floor in pieces. 
A good bad lesson. ha.

Have fun.

Re: RVs

Just remember that most RVs are underpowered for the weight they are
trying to move. So please stay in the right lane. And where possible
on two-lane roads, let the faster traffic by. In the state of Oregon
it is illegal to delay more than five vehicles due to slow speed.
There are passing lanes and slow vehicle turn outs. And sometimes the
police will bust one for not letting faster traffic by.

Wasn't he the guy that graduated from Gonzaga many, many moons ago and
went on to become an early day "pop" star?

Yes, to prevent your salmon from sticking, I use the Reynolds non-
stick release foil. I just cooked some on our grill last night in
fact. You don't need to spray it or anything. It comes in individual
sheets and tells you which side to use. Very easy!!! Just season your
salmon and it slides right off. Easy clean up, too!!! Sounds like a
commercial, huh!!!!!!

I passed!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

To all of you who prayed for me and encouraged me and loved me through
this, thank you. 

I just received notification (in only FOUR days instead of the
promised TEN) that I passed my National Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner
Boards. 

That makes me Lynn-Marie M. Peashka, MN, ARNP, CNS, BC, Legend  all
of which means "Master of Nursing, Advanced Registered Nurse
Practitioner, Clinical Nurse Specialist, Board Certified, Legend"
(that last part means I can prescribe meds from every classification).

I go to Clarkston and back next Friday, 7/1, to do up the initial
paperwork with my new employer. I will be back in Spokane for a few
days after that to keep packing. I will move into a motel down there
from 7/5 through the date of the closing on our haven of peace (the
farm place), 16 miles east of Lewiston, on 7/15. (I see my first
patient in Clarkston on 7/6.)

After that will be an intense (especially for Thomas) month of
bringing the new house into shape, moving, final cleaning of and
listing for sale the place here in Spokane, plus the rigors of getting
adjusted to my new job. (They're actually going to pay me for what I
have been doing as an intern for the past two years!)

This is a wonderful day for me  and your support certainly helped
bring it to pass.

You put the halibut in a pan of hot grease, you flip it after while,
then eat it!

Nothing to it, Roy!

Re: Salmon sticking to grill

Tami,

When I cook salmon on the grill (or I should say, my husband! *LOL), 
we use a cast iron skillet with a little olive oil and Paul 
Prudhomme's Blackened Redfish Magic spices. Warm up the skillet 
first with the oil, then add the fish. You could fix it this way 
without the spices, too if you like. Still tastes great!

If you want the "grill marks" on the fish, use a basket whose lid
clamps together. You could flip it easily - and the fish won't stick.
Short of that, I know that PAM cooking spray makes a version that is
for high temperatures (great for grilling - it works!).

Re: Class of 1983 Bring Your Own Picnic - July 24, 2005

Hi!

http://www.83bombers.com

Please use the link above to see more information about our Class of
1983 "Bring Your Own Picnic" set for July 24, 2005.

Please let me know if you plan to attend so supplies and name tags 
(see the info page) will be available. I have made forms that are very 
fast and easy to use to add your name, say how many you are bringing, 
and to add one contact option (phone, e-mail, snail mail) so I can 
reach you if there is any new/important information about the picnic.

I have kept the cost as close to zero as possible where I am asking
for help with the site fee, paper goods/condiments, and name tags.

Please let me know as soon as possible if you would like to attend.

I have been able to email most of our class that we have email
addresses for (only a few are bouncing with old addresses). If you
see the info here and you can help with word of mouth (while I
attempt some snail mail postcards and some phone calls) you could
help a great deal in alerting our class, especially those still here
in the Northwest. Thank you!

Catch you later!
