I am blessed.

I ordered the Blue Cheese burger and a basket of fries, which were also quite delicious in their own right. I even washed it down with a couple pints of beer, which hit the spot on a nice hot sunny day. If you are in the mood for a great burger, swing on in to Woody's, its at 317 N Indian Canyon Drive in Palm Springs. You'll be glad you did.
As a reminder, like everything on this blog, this was not a paid post in any way. I just liked the joint!

The cedar planks soaked in water for a few hours, to avoid them burning too quickly once placed on the grill. It was a fairly simple recipe- sliced onion, fresh tarragon, minced garlic, seasoning, a dash of olive oil, and fresh squeezed lemon. I let that marinate for about an hour. I placed the salmon filets on the cedar planks, and put them on the pre-heated grill, but turned the heat down low.
I want to say they cooked on the grill for about 20-25 minutes. You can see the planks got slightly charred but not too badly, as they had soaked enough water to keep them in shape to survive the flames. The nice part is of course the wonderful cedar scent that permeates the salmon. With every bite, you could sense the mild cedar aroma. I sauteed some grape tomatoes and sliced baby bella mushrooms, a bit of minced garlic in a dash of sherry, then poured it over the grilled salmon filets. It was easy, relatively fast and a nice healthy dinner at home in Palm Springs. Try it sometime.

I certainly don't claim to be the most green person on the block, but I do try to do my best. I think an important message of Earth Day is awareness of how much we consume. That small step can give one pause the next time you leave the faucet running on the sink, or leave all the lights on. Think about it.

It was Daisy the Golden Retriever and her dad Bernie. She had so many different tricks it was great. I loved how she could climb the ladder with such ease, reverse, moonwalk, and say her prayers on command. She is really one cool dog. It has been so much fun and a true blessing to have been involved in Who Let the Dogs Out. My small part in helping bring the show to the airwaves was very rewarding. Stay tuned, we have plenty of more surprises in store.

Tillman walks the Red Carpet at the Golden Collar Awards in Hollywood, and gets interviewed by John Fulton, host of TV's 'Must Love Cats' show. Tillman may be a dog of few words, but there is plenty of fun Red Carpet action, with celeb dogs and humans as they honor dog achievements in cinema.
The amazing Norman the Scooter Dog entertains a huge audience at Universal Studios CityWalk in Hollywood, as he unveils his brand new bicycle, which he rides perfectly to the delight of onlookers and other dogs too!
The heavily anticipated final competition in the search for The Most Talented Dog in America takes place in this episode. The finalists (dog and human) perform in the competition and give the judges a difficult decision. Who will be selected as the most talented dog in America? Tune in Saturday morning on Animal Planet to find out. Here is the preview clip:

there is definitely something compelling to it. As I head up social media for our Who Let the Dogs Out TV show, I felt I really needed to use and learn more about it. Are you on Pinterest? What do you think about it? If so, let's follow each other and see what our common interests are. I'm at http://pinterest.com/rickrockhill/

The crew really enjoyed the Pets Rule show...they had dogs who could jump rope, set a table, and jump over a person who was standing up. Also in the episode Tillman meets actors Omar Miller and Eva LaRue of CSI: Miami, where we get a tour of the set in Hollywood. I must admit, this entire season of Who Let the Dogs Out has been a lot of fun to work on. Next Saturday, April 21st is the season one finale, so be sure to watch tomorrow and next week too. Here is a preview clip of tomorrow's episode.

This year, Easter Sunday Brunch seems extra special at Melvyn's. They had a huge brunch menu of 14 different items, from incredible omelets, (like 'Filet Mignon omelet'), several delicious salads ('Crab & Shrimp Louis Salad'), a Lobster Benedict, to a range of fabulous entrees that made it difficult to choose just one. I went for the Veal Scallopini, which was excellent. This isn't a commercial for Melvyn's but I just can't help myself from writing about it.
So for me, Easter Sunday was another delicious holiday spent at my favorite restaurant in Palm Springs.
I've written many posts about Melvyn's over the years, so I'll stop here. But I will say, simply look at the two photos of the exterior of Melvyn's I posted here. Those photos convey the elegance of one of Palm Spring's best treasures.

Even the poodles got into the action. Duncan and Sheldon were checking out the vase of pink tulips and other goodies. We have more than enough colored eggs and festive stuff around the house. Sheldon has been carrying his "Mother Goose" stuffed plush toy around the house wherever he goes. I have to remind him to leave it inside when he runs out to go potty. These kids today, you have to stay on them all the time :-)
The weather in Palm Springs has been stunning of late. Perfectly warm days, followed by "gently-cool" evenings. In just a few short weeks the nice warm toasty weather will arrive--which suits me fine. But for today, I shall enjoy all the blessings of life and appreciate this moment for what it is..a gift.

Funny huh? Glad I wore that light blue dragon vest with my tux that night, it made me stand out more! Betty White was great to talk to, she sure loves animals. This was a fun episode, I consider it an honor to have worked on this episode in particular. When you watch it you'll know just what I mean.
Check out the preview clip of this week's show:

|My nieces with their Easter Eggs|
As youngsters they are just now developing their own traditions and creating new memories. It was great to share that experience with them both. We colored about 30 eggs this year, which is a heck of a lot of eggs. Some were hard-boiled, and some were hollowed-out. Curious which method you used in your home--feel free to weigh in on that. So here are their two baskets, with decorated eggs:
