2 tablespoons mango chutney
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro (optional)

Rich's Note: Back To “Back Up, Buddy”
I received so many responses to Monday’s note about backing into parking
slots that I gave up replying to them. I had no idea it was such a
volatile issue, but it seems to be.
Those who agreed with me tended to feel backer-inners were displaying
Those who backed into parking slots had a number of valid reasons for
doing so, such as being able to get away more quickly in the event of a
crisis situation or having to be towed.
I have to mention that there was an underlying resentment of pedestrians
in some of the emails I received. I have been sent thoughts on this
before and, being the casual observer of human behavior that I am, I
have indeed noticed that many pedestrians are just as arrogant and
clueless as many drivers.
Not me and you, of course. We’re better than that.

PAPA'S GOT A BRAND NEW BAG
James Brown 1965
Come here sister.....Papa's in the swing
He ain't too hip...about that new breed thing
He ain't no drag
Papa's got a brand new bag
Come here mama....and dig this crazy scene
He's not too fancy....but his mind is might clean
He ain't no drag.
Papa's got a brand new bag
He's doing the Jerk....
He's doing the Fly
Don't play him cheap 'cause you know he ain't shy
He's doing the Monkey, the Mashed Potatoes, Jump back Jack, See you
Come here sister
Papa's in the swing
He ain't too hip now
but I can dig that new breed babe;
He ain't no drag
He's got a brand new bag
Oh papa! He's doing the Jerk
Papa...he's doing the Jerk
He's doing the twist ... just like this,
He's doing the Fly ev'ry day and ev'ry night
The thing's....like the Boomerang.
Hey! Hey.....come on
Hey! Hey....he's up tight...out of sight...
Come on. Hey! Hey!
