Red Queen Fell Off Her Treadmill in 2018

The "Red Queen" fell off her treadmill in 2018.

From the EIA over the weekend, increased production, fewer wells:

Grilled Lamb For Super Bowl Sunday

The "recipes" all say 2-inch lamb chops will be medium-rare at 3 - 4 minutes on each side on a medium hot grill.

I've never found that to be true.

  • Two lamb chops: cave-man style -- directly on the wood charcoal; four minutes, turn, and then two more minutes; six minutes total;
  • Five lamb chops: on the grill, four minutes on each side; 8 minutes total;
  • Four lamb chops: on the grill, four minutes on each side; turn, an additional 2 minutes; 10 minutes total;
  • Cave-man style: perfect
  • 8 minutes: too rare, and both my wife and I life rare fish (sushi); barely seared tuna; and, rare to medium-rare lamb chops;
  • 10 minutes: perfect
I had planned to do the lamb chops for four minutes on each side cave-man style but it was obvious they were going to be done much more quickly than that. After take the lamb chops off the charcoal, they were placed in heavy-duty aluminum to finish cooking for another 15 minutes (in the car on the ride home).

Directly on "organic" wood charcoal.


  1. Looks like a lot of stripper wells taken off line after 2014.

    1. Thank you. I had not looked at that aspect yet, but going through the scout tickets for the past month, I noticed a lot of wells coming off-line.
