CrabAppleLane Sunday - September 23, 2012 Issue


Very annoying that a software upgrade trashed all of the music on my iPhone. I'm sure it's still there. Just can't access it. Lots of people having this problem this morning. Hopefully, Apple will come out with a standard fix for it. There are a lot of fixes floating around in various forums but none of the ones I've tried have worked.

The Saints take on the Kansas City Chiefs in a few minutes. I'm heading to the recliner in a moment to watch. It's two desperate 0-2 teams. If the Saints fancy themselves a playoff team, this is a must win.

I've been hearing about a restaurant's muffaletta for a few months now. The standard by which I measure all others. The one below is what I'm having for lunch. What you see there is two quarters of one sandwich. I'll give it credit for massiveness. One quarter fills me up. It's really too much to be honest. This place also serves them hot. That's wrong, wrong, wrong. The olive salad should be cold or room temperature. The thinly-sliced meats should also be served cold or room temperature. The thin cheeses should be room temperature. The one pictured is not bad but it's not great, either.

Quote of the Day

A Pakistani government minister on Saturday announced a $100,000 bounty for the killing of the person who produced an online film that denigrates the Prophet Muhammad.

Blog of the day is here.

Quote from said blog: "The Saints have been in the limelight for quite some time. The travesty that was Hurricane Katrina coupled with the sudden and drastic improvement of the team under the leadership of Drew Brees and head coach Sean Payton catapulted a once downtrodden team into an eventual Super Bowl winner. The darlings of ESPN and bandwagon fans alike, the Saints were in the news this offseason for all the wrong reasons."


Good or bad, that Muffaletta looks delicious.

Yeah, it looks pretty good to me too.

Caught the OT of the Saints game. Tough loss and another tough game coming up next week. They're just going to have to grind it out as best they can at this point.

Yeah, the Vikes came out and played the whole game today for the first time this year. They can be a pretty good team when they do that.

Rob, Dave - I have a huge inventory of fresh Arizona limes if you'd like me to ship to you. They're key lime size but not as sweet, perfect for margaritas and/or juicing for fresh lime juice throughout the winter. Send me an e-mail at with your address and I'll send you a bag. I'll be harvesting this weekend!
