Gwinnett County GA

Head in the Clouds!

Last night I spent a fun hour on my balcony in Southern Gwinnett County, GA, looking out towards a storm happening in Northern Dekalb and Fulton Counties. I got a few weak lightning shots. I was about to ditch one of the last ones but then noticed what looked like a giant head just to the right of the faint intracloud lightning strands. It took me aback at first, then I thought it was cute. It reminds me of a huge, in-utero ultrasound baby. 

I will try to upload it here so you can see what I mean.

Shrove Tuesday (Pancake Day) English-Style Thin Pancakes with Lemon and Sugar

Today was Shrove Tuesday, or Pancake Day, in England (and a small section of Gwinnett County, GA). Quick research reveals that to shrive is old English for acknowledging sins. On Fat Tuesday or Mardi Gras, families mix up a bunch of fatty stuff lying around the kitchen with flour, bung it into a frying pan and cook it because they won't be using it for the coming weeks of Lent.

Tradition from where I grew up yields crêpe-like things, mixed very simply thus:
