Gautama Buddha Quote of the Week from Greg Bover

“In the end, only three things matter: how much you loved, how gently you lived, and how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you.”

Gautama Buddha (circa 563-483 BCE)


Although the exact historicity of his life is lost in time it is generally accepted that Siddhartha Gautama, born a prince in what is now Nepal, was a member of the warrior/ruler class who, as a mature and married man, renounced his noble life and began many years of wandering and study, ultimately rejecting the extremes of asceticism and hedonism to establish a middle way to spiritual awakening. He spent the rest of his life teaching the Dharma, or the nature of things, and expounding the Eightfold Path and the Four Noble Truths, the acceptance of which is said to be the route to Nirvana, the perfect peace of a mind free from ignorance, greed and hatred. He is also reputed to have said “The trouble is, you think you have time.”

Follow along this morning at

Thanks to skipper Brian Higgins aboard the F/V Toby Ann we’ve got some beautiful tuna steaks to smoke up today.
Last night I trimmed them up and put out my ingredients for the overnight marinade and added two more ingredients: Fresh Ginger which I’d grate into the bowl and finely chopped up yellow Cayenne Pepper.

The marinade consisted of-

A Bottle of Veri Veri Teriyaki Marinade and Sauce

A Turn In the Bowl of Chili Oil and Japanese Sesame Oil

A Very Generous Amount of Crushed Red Pepper Flakes (I like stuff spicy)

A Half a Tablespoon of Granulated Garlic

Tablespoon of Freshly Grated Ginger

I Finely Chopped  Yellow Cayenne Pepper

A Cup Of Light Brown Sugar

Here’s one of teh tuna steaks before i put them to bed sealed in Ziploc bags overnight.


This morning virtually all of the liquid of the marinade…

 Remember last February? We do. We committed to get the Hell out of New England this winter – and now we are. We are partnering with our longtime friend and Master Teacher Patty Ivey of Down Dog Yoga in Washington DC to offer a winter getaway to the magical Pacific Coast of Mexico.

We’ve been on this trip before and as we were being shown our room we saw a whale breaching just off the shore! The food is delicious, the sights and culture are incredible, and the new people you will meet are top shelf. Whether you are a yoga teacher, experienced student, brand new beginner, or someone with a spouse who loves yoga, this trip will benefit your health, happiness, and tolerance for January, March, and April.

Between lounging on the beach, surfing, whale watching, Puerto Vallarta, an infinity pool, and nearby attractions there is plenty to entertain…

Set up the pit using the snake method with the charcoal arranges from 9oclock to 3 o’clock.  Place some fruit tree chunks on top of the coals and some cherry chips if you have them.  The idea is to place about ten lit coals at 9PM and let them work their way slowly around the pit to not create too much heat all at once.

Then create a simple bacon weave.


Flatten out some ground pork and place it on top of the bacon weave, add your favorite shredded cheese, some sliced onions, some rice and your favorite BBQ sauce.

Next roll your fatty up and pinch the ends together. Apply rub liberally

Place the fatty opposite side of the coals and close the vents so you get temps around 275.  Apply rub to the pork belly and place that alongside your fatty.

Once it reaches an internal temp of…
