Having a heckuva time finding a usable mirror at that site via yum. I
finally just did it the old fashioned way and grabbed it off of Sun. Now
I get the Dancing Dan and everything is peachy. I'll be thankful and
make a wave offering of a nicely smoked beef brisket, since BBQ (not
quite a burnt offering, but close!) is pleasing to the nostrils of the
Lord. One does not live in Texas for any length of time without learning
how to properly smoke beef brisket until it's as tender as fillet.
