WAKE UP to Saturday Beefcake Redux from 2006 and beyond...

... But love goes where our rosemary goes, therefore, we're giving you a recipe and some male flesh anyway. It is the day dedicated to Hermes, Mercury, Woden and it's all about communication. The men here seem to know something about communication. They are true sons of Hermes. Rosemary is that herb powerful enough to protect against bad times and certainly against something so simple as retrograde Mercury which now courses through the astrological sky.

Among its magical uses, beyond powerful protection, the departed gay wiccan, Scott Cunningham tells us this about rosemary:

"... it has long been used in love and lust incenses and other mixtures ... the powdered leaves wrapped in linen cloth and bound to the right arm dispel depression and make the emotions light and merry."

Looks like the gentlemen are somewhat light and merry. They are Mike Betts and Rick Wolfmier from a 1980 pictorial.

Those who know good food also know this useful herb. Here follows a warm weather treat.
