TCC for 5/7/10
"New" 2007 post follows below.
The Caretaker is officially on hiatus from his blog until at least the end of this week but most likely through the end of next week. However, he will still have the e-mails from 2007 posted every night at 9 p.m. EST, they will be going out via the automated system. If the Caretaker happens to take some photos and has the time to post them he will do so. For those readers who have relied on the Caretaker's notifications of new posts via Facebook, while he is on hiatus from his blog he will not be sending out notifications via Facebook for the automated posts from 2007. If you'd like, you can sign up for e-mail notifications by entering your e-mail address at left, it is titled: "To receive E-mail notification of new posts:" It is just below the Caretaker's brief profile.
Before there was the blog the Caretaker sent out posts via e-mail, the following is from the Caretaker's second winter on the Island:
Island Ice Report for 2/23/07:
Outside temp: 10 F
Ghetto temp: 55 F
Wind: N-NW, 10-15 mph gusting up to 20/25
Sky: mostly clear, occasional clouds
Precipitation: occasionally light snow
Today is rather cold and windy, the Caretaker plans to spend much of the day indoors trying to get caught up and all the things he has let slide while trying to get the film uploaded to the internet.
Many of you were pleased with yesterday's photo, glad you liked it, thanks for the feed back.
In other news, following are some of the reviews on the movie so far, the first one provides much of the story behind Lake George Chicken:
Look out Purdue. You indeed do look like the a Lake George Chicken -
burnt and crusty on the outside, raw and rubbery on the inside but with
sublime flavor and character. We can add this clip to the growing
omnibus of Lake George Chicken films, including the T. B.
documentary of 2005. I've heard buzz that they are adding a Lake George
Chicken film category to the Oscars next year - stay tuned.
To the uninitiated, Lake George Chicken is an ancient family
recipe that produces flavorful, succulent, best-you've-ever-had
chickens. The girls just love it!
Long ago a gin-soaked forbearer brilliantly reversed traditional notions
of cooking. Rather than par-boil or bake chicken and then place it on
the grill with sauce, this pioneer boldly burned the raw chicken over
leaping flames first - then boiled and steamed the charred remains in a
savory, ethanol bisque until so delicious it's unrecognizable as
chicken. The secret ingredients of the sauce are locked away in the
steel-trap vault that is S.'s memory. Should you get the
chance to enjoy LGC - don't miss it!"
That is hilarious!!!!! I loved it! And now want LGC!!!
Not KFC - LGC!!!
Thanks for the great laugh!
I believe from now on, in addition to the rumor that the Island is inhabited by cannon wielding Indians, there will be a new story for the riverboat captains to tell....of the highly vociferous habits of the reclusive, yet beloved Lake George Giant Chicken Cross Country Skiing Thang.
Well I was able to view it and I have to say I am starting to worry about you a
Wonderful! The entertainment keeps getting better! What a great way to
keep us smiling and laughing during the grey days of winter. Long live
Lake George Chicken. Colonel Sanders watch out! Here comes Colonel
Hysterical! But I still want to see a photo of G.G .in Lederhosen.
I loved the chicken movie, and you know you have a success on your hands when
you make a 8 and 11 year old laugh!
That's what people are saying so far, if you haven't had the chance to see the movie you can do so here:
Yesterday after the Caretaker managed to upload the film to youtube.com he started contemplating what film he should do next, at first he thought perhaps he should do a movie on how to make Lake George Chicken, but then decided against it, feeling that it would be better left to those who truly know the recipe and have a long history in making it, so perhaps this summer "How to Make Lake George Chicken" will come out. In the meantime the Caretaker might start working on a new film series called "The Caretaker's Concern" which will focus mostly on how it is he lives on the Island in the winter. For example, a film on living with no running water and how to do it with the least amount of effort. This is a project the Caretaker may or may not take on, he hasn't decided yet. When he does you'll be sure to know about it.
