+Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity 1901 Club in NYC was at the Flatiron Hall tonight.
Great location for beer and lively conversation.
It was a small gathering but a good one.

AND it was my first bike ride since the crash. Tonight my knees are barking at me a bit, but nothing too serious. I got in about 12 miles ride today, plus 10,000 steps. No longer a slug.

Tonight, I made Chicken Piccata Cook's Illustrated / America's Test Kitchen sent me a test recipe. Unfortunately, I didn't get time to make it before the survey had expired. Nevertheless, the dish was delicious, the instructions were very clear and straightforward.
Fundamentally, it is chicken cutlets, seasoned, floured and sauteed, then bathed in a sauce of shallots, garlic, chicken stock finished with butter and capers. It's actually quite simple to put together. Worthy of an evening meal. I served it with German Spätlze because I had some I wanted to use up, but any buttered noodles or rice would do well.

Having trouble with Pre-filled Forms

I'm trying to use an Alumni database list to permit easy updating of the information my organization has on file for each member. I have built a link to access a pre-filled Form, using all the data we currently have on a member. Text fields, addresses and phone numbers and emails seem to pre-fill correctly. But the date fields (shown in the pics below) do not populate the form, even though there are values in the spreadsheet that creates the link to the prefilled form. Anyone have a tip about why I'm having trouble with these types of fields?
Thanks.

This time i remembered to snap a photo before they all disappeared!
Chicken skins I saved after prepping my own boneless skinless chicken breasts. Nothing gets wasted. These are so delicious as a treat. Skin from 3 chickens, the fat all cooks out so they are not at all greasy. Like making your own Chicken Chips!

Attended a rehearsal of the New York Philharmonic Symphony today

They are amazingly good, even when their conductor still thinks they have work to do ! :)

I got the chance to attend because our choir is doing a performance in June which will be preserved in the Philharmonic Archives. As a result, they invited all the singers to attend a rehearsal performance of the symphony free-of-charge. I was astounded to hear Beethoven's Piano Concerto #2 in B-Flat Major. Absolutely magnificent.
