I recommend Dexshell Waterproof Socks!   If Dexshell says it’s waterproof, I believe it! Not attractive but good! This link has more and better options.  http://amzn.to/2vFv3JI   XOXO

Ok, as you may know I have different interest in sports and like to get equipment with duel purpose. When you do any sport, it sucks to get wet and be in the cold. Your feet, hands and chest are the most important for me to stay dry and warm. So I got neoprene socks for kayaking, they may keep my feet warmer, but they don’t keep them dry! I keep seeing these ‘waterproof socks’ and thought I’d try them out. I figured I can also use them for hiking on rainy days. So I set out to dip them in water to see if they were in fact water proof and wa-la, they were. TIP: My feet stayed dry. My second suspicion was my feet will sweat more being in a something that keeps out water. However, this will also lock moister in when you sweat. So I put a cotton sock under one sock and one with out on the other. Yes, the one without a cotton sock, underneath was little more sweaty after a mild, 2 mile hike which means maybe after a long day, a lot more sweaty. So I say layer with a cotton socks. The socks are already thick and to me very unattractive. I got the Black and Olive socks. However, who cares when your feet are cozy warm and dry?  Anyway, you can see for yourself in this video I made. Enjoy. Here is a link to them on Amazon. I got a medium.  I don’t mind that they are longer, I intend to tuck them under my dry pants when I kayak.

Price?  There are different prices, not too spendy for the importance of dry feet. I would have a pair in all aspects of my life. I’m going to leave mine in the car with my hiking boots.

A Superb Stake & The Maltese Falcon At John’s Grill In San Francisco

A Superb Stake & The Maltese Falcon At John’s Grill In San Francisco
-By Stacy Poulos

John’s Grill
63 Ellis St., San Francisco, CA 94102
(between 4th St & Market St)
Neighborhood: Union Square
(415) 986-0069

When you’ve been around since 1908 you know someone has carried on the torch. After spending 3 day’s at a MacWorld convention I thought I’d treat myself to a great meal. As I walked down Powell Street I passed by an officer and said “I know you must know where a good place to eat a reasonably priced steak is around here”. He pointed right up the street to 120 Powell at ‘Tad’s Steak Restaurant’ and said you can get a good steak for around 15 buck’s (almost with a New York accent). So I went in that direction, before crossing Ellis St, being a good citizen looking both ways before I crossed the street, to my right ‘John’s Grill since 1908′ caught my eye. It rang a bell for me, so I thought I’d peek in and it was the home of the movie ‘The Maltese Falcon’. It’s a little more spendi for my budget. But as a filmmaker, I couldn’t help but want to sit in a room where Sam spade from the movie sat and be inspired by History. Why not spoil myself once in a while.

I will say, as frugal as I am, I have a very sophisticated pallet for a great quality steak. My mom spoiled us with her restaurant sized indoor grill and teated us to a good T-bone or New York steak once in a while. Not to mention, we got our meat from cows my step dad’s family had raised in Portland Oregon. So trust me, I know a good quality steak. I start out on a steak adventure very skeptical, that it will be near as good as what I have grown up to know. A great steak needs just salt and pepper. Sometimes a hint of butter and garlic.

Going in a fancy restaurant as a single female alone, isn’t always a nice greeting. I was pleasantly surprised all the way around. The first thing I thought about when they sat me down and brought me bread and butter, was the great tasting San Francisco sourdough bread (my best friend in Alabama makes me bring her a loaf when I visit). Most restaurants have this chewy bread. Even if it’s freshly made nothing compares to a SF sourdough bread crust. It has its own taste and texture. Even though there’s a “Sam Spade’s Chops (Broiled lamb chops)” on the menu, I had myself a nice Medium rare New York USDA Prime or Certified Black Angus, the finest available. Corn-fed in the Midwest, it is specially selected for the highest quality and naturally aged for maximum flavor and tenderness steak.  Yummy! Perfect flame broiled on the outside and rare on the inside. The flavor of the meat was superb, As I enjoyed live jazz filling the air.

33 bucks for the steak includes seasonal vegie, a baked potato and roaming around the unofficial museum of San Francisco’s rich History. On the walls are many famous people who have visited including the late Jack Lalanne who said my newest favorite quote “The worst thing you can do to your body is not use it”. I sat across from the 1984 Olympic Torch. You know they have to know someone to have that. It’s a different experience than going to a museum and observing, than actually sitting where films have inspired a part of your career. Before I left, I got my photo taken next to the Maltese Falcon and Emmy Award to inspire my next generation of filmmaking with a great meal underneath my belt and new technology to expand my horizon.

Lee’s Hoagie House: Highly Recommended! Norristown, PA

Lee’s Hoagie House:  Highly Recommended!
2896 Dekalb Pike
Norristown, PA 19401

(610) 279-0800

www.leeshoagiehouse.com

I’ve never been to PA (Pennsylvania) and was looking forward to going, a friend of Local Pages Publishing  (a local
phone book) recommended I try ‘Lee’s Hoagie House‘ for a Pennsylvania style Hoalgie while I was in the Norristown Area.

I tried there special an “Italian Hoalgie”, and I loved
it. I loved it so much I wanted to go back for dinner but they were closed. Hungry for that experience again, I tried another place nearly across the street, and it ruined my experience. Just cuz there in Pennsylvania doesn’t mean everyone who claims to make a good one, does. It actually bothered me so much, I went back the first opportunity I had to have another one. The freshness in the bread took it over the top and the dressing gave it a nice kick. The other place was like eating a dry sponge. My guest let me try her stake Hoalgie with mushrooms, and that was good to. I can go to Pennsylvania and be happy just eating the Hoalgies.
Next time I’ll just get a stake with mushroom. The atmosphere was a deli / sports appeal. I don’t like sports but I love the charm and love the food. It’s a good get-it-and-go. It’s located in a
not-so-fancy strip mall. But the quality of food is outstanding. Just a few  doors down from a fish store, you have to see
Nemos Aquarium… I don’t know if you can bring in your lunch
and hang out but I promise you will want to see there shark tank and 100’s of different fish, most of all, the amazing live coral.  I have never seen before and I’m a diver.


PS Do NOT Mix Lee’s up with Lee’s in California I about feel over when I recently seen one in Pleasenton, not the same at all!!


 


As you can see it is a little messy with dressing dripping, that dressing and the peppers gives it a unique kick.
The bread has that fresh chewy texture while the inner bread is soft pillow of freshness.

This is what I’m coming back for next.
