It Was A Blustery Day And About 60 Degrees... Perfect Play Weather 12/17/2011
We all arrived about 11:00 and the doors opened into the nice warm theater. Javier was the lone straggler but he made it for lunch and brought his world famous hot sauce.... Called the Gringo-Killer! The show got started on time and we had the kids parfents warned about the need for their participation in part two! It worked, the kids shot up on stage like a rocket! Vicky had the " VickyCam" going capturing all sorts of interesting shots as tghe day progressed .

Did You Know? - The Scoville scale is a measurement of the spicy heat (or piquance) of a chili pepper. The number of Scoville heat units (SHU) indicates the amount of capsaicin present. Capsaicin is a chemical compound that stimulates chemoreceptor nerve endings in the skin, especially the mucous membranes.
The scale is named after its creator, American pharmacist Wilbur Scoville. His method, devised in 1912, is known as the Scoville Organoleptic Test. The modern commonplace method for quantitative analysis uses high-performance liquid chromatography, making it possible to directly measure capsaicinoid content.
