A year ago I mentioned that I entered a BBQ Competition and won for the meatless category. This year I entered again.
I tied for People's Choice.
I got 2nd in Ribs.
I got 2nd in Pork.
I won the Meatless Category. This successfully defended my title. This year I made Smoked Pumpkin Pie.
The only category in which I didn't place was chicken.

It's been one year since Mom died and I still miss her every day.
Not a day goes by that I don't think of her in some way. I know I miss her for purely selfish reasons but that does not help the heartache of not having her here. It's difficult not having her here as I start a new chapter of my life. I want so much to have her hold her new granddaughter and be a part of her life. I can only share pictures and memories and hope that some of the things that she instilled in me I am able to pass on to my daughter.
There is great comfort in knowing that I will be with her again one day and without God and that hope this past year would have been far more difficult. That doesn't always relieve the daily pain, but I know it helps immensely.

Letting my star go. The site hasn't been the same in a long time. I haven't watched videos in a long time. And when Staff feel the need to use their public notoriety to make political commentary then they clearly no longer need my small contribution.
So when this Star runs out it will be my last one.
Meatless BBQ Champion
I won by cooking a Smoked Cheesecake with Ginger Caramel Sauce.

Well I currently have a reading list I'm going through.
The Lord of the Rings (Actually started with The Hobbit)
The Kingkiller Chronicles (Skipped to await its completion)
Ender's Game (Read the entire series dealing with Ender)
The Thrawn Trilogy (Skipped since it is no longer canon)
World War Z
The Princess Bride
The Dune Chronicles
The Time Traveler's Wife
A Song of Fire and Ice
Journey to the Center of the Earth
The Once and Future King
I'm currently on Fahrenheit 451. So the next three I would need would be "American Gods", "Journey to the Center of the Earth, & "The Once and Future King".
