Started off the morning with a Poached egg on a Healthy Life Whole Grain English Muffin. Also had my morning cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. We had the wooden deck repainted today. We have a huge deck so it will take another day to finish it up. It’s looking good though! After Breakfast I went up to the local Kroger for a couple of items and back home. A little warmer out there today, 69 degrees and mostly sunny. Not much going on today, all caught up on all the cleaning. Went on over to see Dad for a bit and back home. Not feeling up to par, upset stomach. So no Dinner post tonight. See everyone tomorrow!!

Thank you to all of you that visit my blog! This month is my blog’s 7 year anniversary! It started out that this was just something to do to fill up a lot of idle hours. I lost my left leg to Melanoma Cancer back in 2001. I continued to have to battle Melanoma until 2004 when at that time I was told I was Cancer Free! I beat some tough odds through some fine Doctors out of Pittsburgh (UPMC), a very fine Doctor here in neighboring Fairfield Ohio (That I’m sad to say lost his battle with cancer 2 years ago), and through the grace of God above!
So my life had really changed after all that and there was a time I was fighting boredom and depression. That’s when, while I was online, I seen that a cousin of mine had started an online blog. So I gave it try in 2010 and now its 2017, 7 years later and my blog keeps growing thanks to all of you! Now I look forward to looking and sharing new recipes, food news, and everyday life for me. I’m in a wheelchair,thus the name of my blog My Meals are on Wheels. At the time I’m writing this I now have 2,931 Followers, followers from around the World! That’s just so amazing to me. 2,931 new friends I would have had without my blog! So thank you again for all of you that follow my blog or for those that just drop by to read. Thanks, Mark (Ohio Cook)

Celebrate the Coming of Spring, Over-the-Rhine’s brewing heritage, and bock beer at the largest Bockfest in the United States. Join us on March 3-5, 2017 as we celebrate 25 years of the funkiest festival in Cincinnati!
There is something for everyone at Bockfest Hall (located at the Christian Moerlein Brewery at 1621 Moore Street, Cincinnati 45202)! Party Like a Bockstar on Friday night by watching the Parade, then enjoying live music, great food, and cold bock beer. Saturday morning kicks off with the Bockfest 5K, then you can sample Bocks, Bites, & Bygone Days with local and rare bock beer tappings, the Bockfeast dinners, a toast to WNKU, and unique heritage series and historic brewery tours. Saturday night kicks back into high gear with the Billygoat Ball with live music, more cold bock beer, and the Beard Baron and Sausage Queen competitions! On Sunday, we refresh ourselves with Bocks, Brunch, and Bavarians with a Bockfeast brunch, Bloody Mary bar, and Continental Sunday. Make sure to visit all the participating venues throughout the neighborhood with special offers all weekend long. The best part is Bockfest is FREE!
Bockfest is first and foremost, a community event. In addition to throwing a great, three day long party, our goal is to celebrate and support our local community. We work to grow Bockfest every year, to increase attendance, to grow the parade, to add events, and to raise more money to spread the word. However, as enthusiastic as we are about growing the festival and sharing it with an increasingly wider range of America, we are unwavering in our commitment to keep Bockfest unique, authentic and local. There is no charge to the public to attend Bockfest and we work to include all types of local businesses because our goal is to promote Over-the-Rhine, its rich heritage, and the people who live and work here to as broad of an audience as we can reach.

The Great Food Truck Race – Premieres Sunday, Aug. 28 9|8c
Let’s Get Rolling! – Seven food truck teams embark on a food truck race that could earn them a life-altering prize of $50,000. In the premiere, the teams meet Tyler in Los Angeles, the center of the food truck revolution, and the race begins with the teams’ first Truck Stop challenge, a game-changing twist posed in each episode: Instead of starting in Los Angeles, the race commences in San Diego. To even the playing field, the teams begin with empty trucks and an equal amount of seed money. They have three days to prepare, promote and sell their food by any means necessary. After a weekend of triumphs, teamwork, and tests of character, the totals are tallied and the trucks find out who continues the great race and who goes home.
