Slow Cooker Guinness Beef Ribs

A tasty serving of beef ribs from +Chef Dennis Littley​​​​ via his must try recipe.

#WeDig #ribs #TastyFood
Can you say deliciousness? Try saying Slow Cooker Guinness Beef Ribs its my new definition of deliciousness!
I hope you enjoy my recipe!

½ onion coarsely chopped
2 cloves of garlic diced
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 tablespoon sea salt
½ teaspoon black pepper
5-6 pounds beef ribs
1 bottle Guinness Beer or Root Beer
½ cup red wine vinegar
1 cup beef stock
1 cup of your favorite barbecue sauce- (I used Uncle Matty's Spicy Red Sauce)

Add chopped onion and garlic with olive oil in your slow cooker on the saute setting, allow to cook for a few minutes.
Add ribs on top of onions and season them with sea salt and black pepper.
Begin adding in the rest of the ingredients, turning your slow cooker to low.
Cover and cook on low for 7-8 hours or on high for 4 hours.
When ribs are done, remove them from the slow cooker pouring sauce into a sauce pan.
Pour off excess grease from liquid and reduce liquid over high heat until the sauce has thickened.

Serve sauce over ribs and enjoy!

'Scuse Me While I Kiss the Sky

A great capture at the perfect angle, making Jimi seem as if he is kissing the sky.  A fantastic still from the documentary/movie "Rainbow Bridge" which was filmed in July, 1970, on the island of Maui, Hawaii.

Bonus - Here is some exciting footage, from the movie Rainbow Bridge.  In it, we see Jimi playing a medley of songs, including Purple Haze

h/t +Oleg Moskalensky  for sending the post my way. :)

Influenced by Hendrix | A Tribute to Prince

We all know that +Jimi Hendrix​​​​​ has influenced many of today's artists, including the late, great Prince.

In this 2014 video, we witness Prince channeling Jimi, in his funk-rock song, "She's Always In My Hair". He performs a Hendrix-esque guitar solo and a brilliant, albeit brief, feedback ending. The female lead-guitarist, Donna Grantis, from 3RDEYEGIRL, Prince's protégé band, also shreds a solo, mid-song.

In 2004, Prince was featured on the Jimi Hendrix tribute disc, Power of Soul. He recorded a version of Jimi's "Red House" and renamed it "Purple House". Sample track on Amazon (

Like A Rolling Stone

Jimi Hendrix was an avid fan of Bob Dylan and it's ironic that one of Jimi's most iconic songs is Dylan's, "All Along The Watchtower".
In this video, Jimi performs the Bob Dylan classic, at the '67 Monterey Pop Festival, and he plays it with swagger and confidence - he owns it!

Jimi Hendrix's Childhood Seattle Neighborhood - A Photo Collage

The 900 square-foot house is no longer there, it was torn down in 2002 and a low-rise condominium complex now sits in its place.  The address is 2603 S. Washington Street and Jimi lived there, with his father and brother (Leon), until he was 17.  He then enlisted into the US Army.

Below is a photo collage of Jimi as a baby, a toddler, a few pictures of him with his father (Al Hendrix), his return to Seattle in '68 (color images) and a photo of his much adored mother, Lucille Jeter. 

h/t to +Mike Downes​​​​ for his sharing, with me, his Picasa knowledge.

Good customer service and the tellers are very efficient. However, don't go to the banks in Trinidad and Tobago on or about the first of the month, because that's when most of the local pensioners go to the banks to cash their pension checks.
