Out of the Blue

Okay, yesterday was operation spin the bird, as I took my first stab at rotisserie cooking on the grill, and without wasting time on modesty, I have to declare the outcome an unqualified success, as the bird was spectacular. Actually, modesty doesn't enter into it, as the chicken did all the work, just as advertised. I brined the bird for a couple of hours, stuffed some garlic in the cavity and under the skin, added some salt and pepper and some herbs, and let him spin on the spit for a little under 90 minutes, so the chicken really cooked itself. The hardest part was getting it trussed, since I had never done that before, but it's a simple process that will get easier with practice. I could not be more excited at this new addition to the exports of Manstovia.

That's a neat story...reminds me of this one from a few weeks ago.

I watched a documentary a few years ago about a group attempting to rescue and restore a B-29 that had been sitting frozen in Greenland when the crew got lost and ran out of fuel. The crew was rescued, but plane sat there frozen for decades.

It's available to watch online, but if you don't want to watch it, secret text spoilers follow. It was a pretty sad ending. They failed to get it out during the short few months of summer they had, and the main guy behind the operation became sick and died. One of the crew re-organized and returned to finish the job the following year. They restored the plane to flying condition, but while taxiing to takeoff they forgot to shut off an auxiliary generator after starting the main engines, which broke from its mount and caught fire. They were able to get out of the plane, but had to watch as two years of hard work burned to the ground.
