   OK, ..Why this name. we have some folks that call us a cult and some folks that said we maybe serial killers. i guess we are more a family of folks that share the same passion about good folks, fun and GOOD FOOD!  anyways, i thought that was silly, then i thought about it and yes we are a cult of cereal killers. the written in granite  things are now determined. here is the location..panama city beach,fla. the dates are...15th-22nd of september, the location where the orginial members are staying...join us there! all orginial members are coming back and from responses earlier, MANY more folks.we are staying at the celadon panama city beach, fla. here is the address and e'mail. for ya....celadon condominnums, 17757 front beach rd. p.c. beach, fla 32413. these units are owned by owners so it's best to check it out on the web. my wife found a nice one 2 weeks ago for 600 bucks, that is a 1 bedroom. these are very nice. pelicangal, robogranma, cindylepp and myself all left blogs last year about the different experiences we had.. theirs has pictures. i'm tech-challenged, so check those out about what to expect.  if anyone is traveling from the north and flying into atlanta, i live @ 2 hoursw of there and can pick you up there. if folks are coming from anywhere elsa and need a break and doesn't want to rent a room...we are @3 1/2 hrs from p.c. ya are welcome to spend the evening here at my home. we have 2 confirmed so far, so 1 bedroom left but plenty of couches  left. you WILL have privacy! my e-mail is cderr@aol. i can give you some phone numbers here as well. a 1st this year----a freak-flag winner will be chosen at the meeting, btw. the "official" meeting will take place the 21st at hunts restuarnt. a crummy looking local dive that has the best various types of seafood, cheap prices and cold beer. the reason i started so early was i wanted to give folks an opportunity to save, make arrangements, maybe bunk with a known buddy and save some money. please remember we are all good cooks. if you want to cook do so, or if you are like me...gimme a tan, some great raw oysters, and cold beer, i'm happy.! nothing is expected from anyone...just some laid-back redneck humor amid the best folks on the planet...come and will not be disappointed. i need everyone coming or considering it to show up so that maybe ya can share a ride, condo..etc. please post inside so the other folks may know.

Mar. 5, 2012 4:00 pm
c'mon terry you know it's you all! or yourun!!
Mar. 5, 2012 5:52 pm
Okay GDerr is it just me or have I had one too many bourbons tonight. Just talked to Cindy and she told me the 15th thru the 22nd. That is 8 days if we are having the roundup on the 22nd and not leaving til the 23rd. For me (as you know) my plane leaves early in the a.m. so to be at the roundup will need to stay until the 23rd. That would be 8 days. I can always stay at another hotel for one night but would like to get planes, reservations, etc., in place. Just talked to Cindy again and she will call you to coordinate. Love you give Claire a big hug for me.
Mar. 5, 2012 6:47 pm
gotcha jan...we have a plan in place now, so don't worry all will be fine! cindy is checking something tomorrow and it seems like the ideal thing! dang my sexeritaries!

Mar. 5, 2012 8:27 pm
Gary, how do you find the condos for rent, a particular website, or randomly try to find owners renting their condos? Would like to try to come for the actual roundup, but might just find a nearby hotel or somebody's sofa, LOL. Won't know for sure until much later, so right now I'm going to dream (and save my change!)
Mar. 5, 2012 8:28 pm
Oops, "how do y'all find..." Sorry, gotta get into Southern mode.
Mar. 6, 2012 5:38 am
yep, mags you gotta get to talking correctly :) try this web then you can go the panam city,fla. site and check celadon or cloe hotels/condos in the area. cindy is in contcact with an owner that has 4 vacanies. claire and i need to book as well. we will this week. we were kinda sitting back and giving other folks time to determine if they wanted to share a 2 bedroom with us.
Mar. 6, 2012 7:01 am! vacations rentals by owner. then type in the celadon , city, state. sorry about the boo-boo.
Mar. 6, 2012 7:53 am
my best friend's sister-in-law makes $67 an hour on the internet. She has been laid off for nine months but last month her income was $20589 just working on the internet for a few hours. Go to this web site and read more -
Mar. 6, 2012 1:51 pm
LOLOL I may have 6 months but, hun, we've had lots longer being laid off here at this house. At least, I get to have a roundup so all is super fantastic :)(: BSM's comment has me ROTFLMAO Y'all will have so much fun. Who's holding the bail money?
Mar. 6, 2012 5:49 pm
hi cat! i truly wish circumstanes were better for ya! i'm thinking maybe robogranma or vamom is in charge of bail!
Mar. 6, 2012 5:53 pm
ok after talking to my serewball co-conspirtators, i am COMPELLED to move the meeting to the 15th of september at hunt's resturant. but remember the dates for staying is still the same. a bunch of us are coming in on the 14th and staying until the 24th. cindy lepp will post a blog later and try to match folks up in condos.
Mar. 7, 2012 1:42 pm
Sooooo..... Changing things up a bit, huh? I'm coming either way - If we're "meeting" on the 15th, I'll probably come in on the 14th & stay til 18th. If we "meet" the 22nd, I'll come 19th - 23. Either way, you're stuck with me! Just can't do the whole week. Yee-Ha!
Mar. 7, 2012 4:17 pm
hi staci! sorry. yes it gonna be the saturday the 15th. i wish more folks that ar coming would re-post so they may save some money on rooms and such. i can't wait to hear that terric southern junior league accent again! you just think you are leaving will be imprisioned! can't wait till we see you again!
Mar. 7, 2012 7:42 pm
I am planning on coming this year...Told my husband he has to stay home that weekend/week from hunting so he can babysit the animals, lol. Tell Cindy Lepp to stop by & pick me up on her way south, lol....Already told her...Sounds like a blast...
Mar. 7, 2012 7:46 pm
Rats, well the 15th is out for me. I will have to check on the later dates.
Mar. 8, 2012 4:47 am
Well now the date is set in concrete (I hope) we will be camping at St. Andrews. I'll get online and book our reservation. The 10th we leave Flagler beach and so we'll be there for sure over the weekend of the 15th - 18th...then we'll head on over to Destin area. Hopefully gas won't go up to 5 bucks a gallon. Will be great to meet everyone.
Mar. 8, 2012 7:46 am
you will love mylepp, she is a treasure and talk about a perfectionist...oh yeah!
Mar. 8, 2012 7:49 am
mags there will be plenty of folks staying longer and we eat out pretty much every night. we intend to cook in the condo at least 1 night. we are still trying to coordinate what :)
Mar. 8, 2012 7:52 am
yes finally set in stone now!! no more changing the 15th it is! st. andrews is a beautiful state park! claire and i had a vw camper van and stayed in it there, gosh, maybe 25 years ago when we 1st got married. tree frogs n the showers. it was great...we love frogs.
Mar. 9, 2012 6:48 am
Great..then I'll work on our reservations and trip plan. We still see VW campers once in awhile at the campgrounds, so they're still out there. Have never had a frog in the shower with me, but did have a snake once in the keys...that was a real hoot. We have been wanting to camp at St. Andrews for years.
Mar. 9, 2012 9:11 am
hi sherri! yes, everything is now set. we stayd 26 years ago in july....good grief talk about hot, so we put up the screens, but the sheeters got trapped in while we were goofing off and we fed 'em all night. beautiful place, they now spray. you will be on the western most point down there. if your hubby fishes tell him to bring a rod. there are jettys and a pass cut to the gulf. oh, btw nope never seen any snakes down sure you hadn't wandered into the men's bathroom :)?
Mar. 9, 2012 6:11 pm
I know I'm late arriving to this party - but you know "I'M IN!!" I'll check the celadon website for open units - and I'm up for any roomies that want to share. Hey Gary - what is a "freak flag winner"??? . . . what are the rules to this contest?? The freakiest food?? The freakiest flag?? The freakiest fear?? . . . Like clown shoes - - LOLOLOL!!!
Mar. 10, 2012 6:09 am
hi luv! you are gonna love THIS crowd! everyone laughs their tails off! glad you are coming! ok the freak flag...rules? no stinking rules! nope no one is expected to cook! the freak flag winner ( not even a flag btw) is imparitially awarded by the judges on something/ anything. does that make any, i'm confused too.
Mar. 10, 2012 11:03 am
Ok - I totally understand. . . well, not totally. . .well, not much . . . ok - not at all - - but no never mind - I'M IN - freak flag and all!!
Mar. 10, 2012 12:31 pm
yep,'s a serious blast. you will make life-long friends from different parts of the country. just wait!bring a sense of humor...nobody is serious!
Mar. 11, 2012 4:33 am
Ok Gary I booked my reservation at St. Andrews, nice waterfront, only a couple were left...can you believe that this far ahead! We come in on Fri. and will be around to mid week. Won't be too far away for the following weekend to come back for a visit. Gonna be fun. We can have day guest at St. Andrews so anyone wanting to come and fish, or kayak, we'll have our kayak...more than welcome.
Mar. 11, 2012 4:35 am
Oh that is Friday the 14th
Mar. 11, 2012 5:57 am
wow sherri! that is great!! glad you made reservations early....i bet your on the bay side. it's beautiful there, especially being on the water! thanks for the invite too. the kayak sounds excellent!!
Mar. 11, 2012 1:11 pm

Mar. 11, 2012 1:53 pm

Mar. 11, 2012 2:50 pm

Mar. 11, 2012 7:07 pm
That's not during Thunder Beach (bike week) is it? I hope not! LOL! Anyway, PCB is almost home for me and my sister has a house there a few blocks from the beach. I don't know yet if I'll be able to join y'all - I'm currently 3000 miles away, but, if I can, am I welcome?
Mar. 11, 2012 7:09 pm
P.S. I was there about the same time, a week earlier, last year and it's beautiful then. LOVE to go out on a wave runner - my favorite thing to do. :)

About Me
i enjoy cooking. the wife considers it a chore. i hate yard work. she loves it. we mesh. i love bass fishing, reading, music, baseball, college football and my family.
My favorite things to cook
i love vegetables, soups, and italian cusine.
My favorite family cooking traditions
holidays are a big deal! christmas is my time to shine. i try to add a new recipe each year, but the family demands pretty much the same menu. kinda frustrating!
My cooking triumphs
i cared for my mother in law about 3 months when she had shattered her shoulder. i didn't work, so money was tight. we survived on only wife's paycheck during that time. ma-n-law had diet restrictions. it was difficult to make cheap, nutritious meals everyone would eat. we prospered as a family and learned alot about each other's strenghths and weaknesses.
My cooking tragedies
a stove top fire. i explained that one already. the grill falling over was another one...oops grill season is here! i love the tragedies...those are the ones that i'll always remember!
