Caroline Grace Crowley has released her premiere youtube cover rendition of Three Days Grace, "Last to Know." Though the audio quality has its glitches, her talent shines through. We hope to see more of Ms. Crowley and her production company VampireLuv965.

Athena's Tilapia cooked in Sour Cream Parmesan sauce.
(Ma's Recipe, made for Grouper)(Cleopatra Maltezo Marler, mother of Capt. Ben Marler of Destin, FL)(pictured g. granddaughter Christina Victoria Cole and husband, Seth Cole, of Destin on their wedding day)
For 2 Tilapia (or any white fish such as grouper) filets, on an oiled baking sheet
Mix well in a small bowl about 1/2 c. Sour Cream, Salt and Pepper to taste, and a few drops of Tobasco sauce. Then "frost" the fish filets with it, covering completely (use up all the sour cream mixture). Sprinkle liberally with Parmesan cheese, and garnish with Dill sprinkled lightly over the cheese (optional). Pretty, and adds some flavor, too.
Broil on LOW, for about 7-8 minutes for each inch of thickness of fish. Keep checking by flaking meat with a fork, until done. (If you don't have Low Broil, you could improvise with 450 Bake and brown slightly under broiler afterwards)
DELICIOUS, and Restaurant Worthy.
Serve with bread or dinner rolls, Pilaf (rice cooked in broth or with a bouillion cube) or Buttered Rice, and maybe a canned vegetable like chilled asparagus with lemon. Or a salad. Note: I make perfect microwave rice by cooking 2 c. water, 1 c. rice, Uncovered in microwave for 14 minutes. If you cover it, it will run over. Fast and foolproof. Flake and serve.
Buenos Aires is where the dance Tango was born. Internationally, Buenos Aires is on the Atlantic Ocean and sparkles as the "Paris" of South America. It's home to some of the most beautiful shoes, and dancers, in the world! I confess I am hooked on this dance form. One day I hope Keith and I will visit Buenos Aires and go to the cafe which made tango famous around the world. The Argentine Tango is different from regular Tango. It is a dance between one man and one woman. It has it's own vocabulary, it's own language. Love, hate, indifference, romance, playfulness...the gamut of emotions may be expressed in it. Though some of the steps are simple, one could take a lifetime to master them, and enjoy every moment. There is no choreography that once mastered, which cannot be improvised and personalized on the dance floor. There are several styles on Tango...Salon tango is informal, and danced with one person, one dance, at a time, usually in a "salon" or small living room setting or dance floor. Milongas are parties where dances are danced in sets of three before changing partners. There is "street" tango, or orillero. And yes, it is danced on the streets of Buenos Aires in public performances. (What could be more romantic?) And finally, there is Fantasia, which is a highly stylized, large, dramatic and exaggerated dance done on stage to prepared choreography and orchestra. Fred Astaire offers basic tango classes for couples for $10 on Tuesdays at 5:45 in Panama City, Florida.
