Not in the clamor of the crowded street, not in the shouts and plaudits of the throng, but in ourselves, are triumph and defeat.--Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

REDIRECT ALERT! (Scroll down past this mess if you're trying to read an archived post. Thanks. No, really, thanks.)

Due to my inability to control my temper and complacently accept continued silliness with not-quite-as-reliable-as-it-ought-to-be Blogger/Blogspot, your beloved Possumblog will now waddle across the Information Dirt Road and park its prehensile tail at http://possumblog.mu.nu.

This site will remain in place as a backup in case Munuvia gets hit by a bus or something, but I don't think they have as much trouble with this as some places do. ::cough::blogspot::cough:: So click here and adjust your links. I apologize for the inconvenience, but it's one of those things.

Mmmmm! That's Good Night Hawk!!

As mentioned, one of our excursions included a trip to Wal-Mart for...for...for stuff, which also included groceries. Reba got some frozen dinners for us to take in our lunch--I didn't really pay any attention to them until just now as I was nuking it. "Western Charbroil -- Charbroiled Beef Patty with Gravy and Seasoned Potatoes with Cheddar Cheese." It's made by some company out of Buda, Texas called Night Hawk Frozen Foods. Never heard of it, and the tagline on the back of the box sorta made me a bit queasy:
Charbroiling... it's what has
made the Night Hawk Flavor Unique for
over 35 years!
Eww. Charbroiled night hawk.

But, where there's a frozen dinner, there's a story, so after about two seconds of powergoogling, I came across an article from the January 26, 2001 edition of the Austin Chronicle, which in minute detail tells you everything you need to know about this brand, which just happens to be one of those historical American food brands like White Castle or Howard Johnson's, and its founder, Mr. Harry Akin.

Interesting story.

And the food's pretty good, too. It has a nice charbroiled flavor.
