SUNDAY, JULY 2 ...
We were just about to head out the door to Jetties Sunday barbecue when the sky opened up. Hmmm. Not fair. We'll give it a few minutes and hope the grills are not washed out. BO BLAIR began the Summer Barbecues at Jetties last week, and one happy patron told me it was excellent. For more information, visit Bo's website: jettiesdc.com.

In my quest to try every brunch in DC, today we headed to the "outer boroughs," to Potomac, Md., to the venerable Normadie Farm restaurant, which has been operating since 1931. The pleasant wait staff no longer wear period French country costumes, nor does the brunch menu even seem all that French, but they still have marvelous popovers. It's an all-you-can-eat buffet for $24, including lots of salads, shellfish, vegetable dishes, cheeses, spreads, hand carved prime rib, beef stroganoff, lamb, eggs benedict, an omelet man, waffles, pancakes to order, and a half dozen different desserts. Spencer and compared that spread to the $90 per person buffet brunch at the Four Seasons and Normandie Farm came out on top.

The photo of the day shows the dessert we made last night at home. It's so simple, and is a celebration of all the fresh berries now in the markets as well as the colors of the flag. Spencer helped me make the shortbread, using Lily buttermilk biscuits mix. He kneaded the dough while I whipped the heavy cream and vanilla for creme Chantilly. The shortbread took 10 minutes to bake, a few more minutes to cool, and dessert was on the table.

What I fell for this week were ringback tones. They are a positive from the cellphone industry. Now when someone calls my cellphone, rather than a conventional ringer, they get
DANIEL POWTER singing "Bad Day," and the song plays until I, or voicemail, answer. Isn't that sweet? I happen to adore the song, especially the lyrics:

Where is the moment we needed the most
You kick up the leaves and the magic is lost
They tell me your blue skies fade to grey
They tell me your passion's gone away
And I don't need no carryin' on

You stand in the line just to hit a new low
You're faking a smile with the coffee to go
You tell me your life's been way off line
You're falling to pieces everytime
And I don't need no carryin' on

Cause you had a bad day
You're taking one down
You sing a sad song just to turn it around
You say you don't know
You tell me don't lie
You work at a smile and you go for a ride
You had a bad day
The camera don't lie
You're coming back down and you really don't mind
You had a bad day
You had a bad day

Well you need a blue sky holiday
The point is they laugh at what you say

And I don't need no carryin' on
You had a bad day
