SIMPLE SUMMER PARTY RECIPE: Outdoor Movie Night.  Choose a classic summer flick.  Rent or borrow a DVD Projector.  Select a blank wall of the house or hang a white sheet in the yard.  Add bags of buttery popcorn and a bucket of ice cold beer and wine. Invite the neighbors to BYOC (bring your own chairs).  We've done just this, screening JAWS in our front carport, smack in the middle of the city, to rave reviews.  In fact, time we do it again.
