  1. Torrential rain, a few nearby twisters, and some stiff gusts of wind so far. Surprised the power is still on.
  2. I don't think you can beat a 340 PD. I usually have one in my pocket.
  3. Party was a hoot, boats are gone, now we wait for WP's turtle.
  4. I've had two paid for massages in my life. The first time was in college. A service was offered in the dorm across from my room. I thought it might be nice, so I obliged. Helga was a large woman. She was rough. When she worked near my naughty bits, wood sprang forth. She gave me a stiff arm as she tightened down the towel that she had given me, and that was that. I liked it not. Years later, my new bride talked me into getting some spa treatment at a tropical Ritz Carlton. Same thing, but with seaweed or some such nonsense. I have since found, I don't generally like to be touched by people, especially those I don't know. And, if you work around my naughty bits, and are a chick, well, things happen.
  5. No. No. And, no. I have an innate inability to forgive. I know it is one of the biggest hurdles in my life.
  6. It is obvious that Eric doesn't want this thread to chase that debate rabbit down that hole, but some broad, sweeping generalizations are true. I take my leave of this thread.
  7. Sorry, I can't help. Most new things I have installed in this house are "smart," like heat pump thermostats. I connected one, then removed it. I'd rather use my key, the keypad, and push the thermostat button/gate opener/garage door than have them connected to the interwebz.
  8. Having leftovers from the pre hurricane party yesterday. I smoked a yuge amount of meats and may have consumed too much alcohol. So, I am lazy today. If you like traditional salsa, try this old family recipe: 8 good-sized tomatillos 1 poblano 2-4 jalape├▒os or serranos one sweet onion 4 cloves of garlic (skin on) one handful of chopped cilantro one lime Cut the tomatillos in half, slice the onion into 3/8" rounds, and place all ingredients under broiler or on grill on high. When everything is charred, remove and let cool. Here is where you need a molcajete or mortar and pestle. I promise you, if you use a blender it won't be as good. I've done side by side comparisons. Start with the hot chiles, and a pinch of salt. Bash the hell out of them. Remove at least half and toss the skins. Add the skinned poblano, bash the hell out of it. Add 2 cloves of garlic (remove skin), do the same. Add about half the onion and bash, then do the same with all the tomatillos. Taste. If it needs more heat, add some of the chiles back into the mix. If it needs more garlic or onion, add it and bash again. Then add the lime juice and cilantro.

  10. Storm surge is looking like it will be a problem here, as the models show it hitting at a really big high tide. Chaos has already begun.
  11. Yes. I've already hit the store to freshen up my supplies. Gas is already gone. Next up, dealing with boats. Big party is happening tomorrow.

    The new models show the eye right over my house Wed/Thurs. Time to sharpen the chain on the Farm Boss.
  13. 1 prime brisket, 2 pork butts, 6 racks of pork ribs, 4 short rib plates, sausages, and some chickens.
  14. All the best to them....It doesn't look like y'all inland will get it too bad.
  15. My apologies. I had not previously heard of this lady and perhaps, did not realize she was so dear to so many. :dunno:
