Two hikers who got stuck on the side of a mountain in the Eaton Canyon area near Altadena Saturday night were plucked from their predicament by a county fire helicopter crew tonight and placed on safe footing, a dispatcher said.
  
Firefighters were notified around 6:40 p.m. that the hikers were in trouble in the 2200 block of Pinecrest Drive, Los Angeles County Fire Department dispatcher Miguel Ornelas said.
  
A helicopter crew arrived at 7:08 p.m., made the rescue and cleared the scene at 7:43 p.m., Ornelas said, adding that the hikers were not injured.

The crock pot is for stringy runners with little meat on their bones, to be tenderized enough for consumption, in the event of you having to duke it out as to who cannibalizes who. Sorry, Marty, I feel you are toast in such an event. You may run, but rubberband will make you fall down laughing, then attack.

See? It's awkward and weird, but my way WORKS. You'll never see it coming, but when it hits you'll be too busy trying not to wet yourself. I am an excellent cook, and that surprises many. BUzz Stew.....I must remember to pick up some baby potatoes and mushrooms.... LOL.----------------------------------------------(AND remember I LIKE FIGHTING and teach hand to hand extreme assault survival skills...mostly due to NOT being able to run so I MUST stay and fight....no Irish "he who fights and runs away. May live to fight another day" here, and my quarter Irish blood wants to every time.)

Pirate and Irish blood. I suppose you raid all the whiskey, yes?

yep. Raiding of whiskey and chocolate and fine meats happens. I'm highly organized and very clean like a cat and a total Captain Morgan mess in other ways...It's messy and fun, my heritage...Irish, Italian, French-Swiss and Polish....woof.
