Re: Bon Appetit!

Le Creuset makes lovely things, just carefully look over anything you buy at the outlets. I bought a red grill pan, which appears to have been coated wrong, as it always gets a terrible hot spot. I prefer Staub, the french enameled cast iron cookware. They almost always have their small pot on sale ...

Our local rag just did an article on me and Hen being separated by Covid.
And here I thought you were separated by about 10 time zones.
That’s less Mencken and more Youngman. Clue the cymbals! :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Both Sue and my Swede directed me to Sarah Cooper - she is hysterical. With Helen, even better. And then the towels. Genius!

Also sad. This pisses me the eff off.

Oh I want to read that book — especially as an optimist. I’m very interested in his take. Thanks for the share, had not heard about it before.

What strength he has.

Re: Coronavirus

Ugh, so sorry. My sister’s in-laws, who are immuno-compromised, came down with it at the beginning of the month, when their youngest son visited from a state w no masking requirements. Luckily they recovered quickly. Hoping the same for your family.

Meth is a composite of all of the worst traits I have encountered in engineers.

He definitely has the deadly trifecta:
Thinks he knows everything.
Won’t take advice given in good faith
Blames others for his failures

Re: 2020 Election results

Of course some appeals are accepted and even granted on the grounds of incompetent representation first time around. Maybe that has been Trump and Giuliani's plan from the start. That could explain Giuliani's eye-popping $20,000 per day 'demand' (and the Four Seasons Landscaping thing) - if he is g...

Re: Am I logged in?

Several of us have tried to provide advice and context, and it has clearly fallen on deaf ears. I have stayed out of this whole kerfuffle largely because I think adults in general can choose where they want to be and can figure out how to behave themselves in normal social interactions, whether we'r...

Re: 2020 Election results

Clinton joined the Jill Stein recount in Wisconsin. After Stein filed, with the Clinton campaign explicitly saying they would not have sought a recount themselves because there was no evidence hacking, fraud or other interference. The Michigan recount was started and quietly dropped. Again, this wa...

Re: Maintaining Small Flashlights

I too decry the "throw away society" we've become, but seriously, replace your $1 flashlight with a NEW $1 flashlight. LED flashlight technology has come a long way in the last 10 years. Remember the four and five " D" cell MAG lights of 20+ years ago? I still have a couple in a box somewhere in th...

Don't say I didn't warn you. What was purported to be a simple question turned out to be just another excuse to complain about how the board works. So be it.
Not to mention the demanding PM about deleting post content. Fuck no.

Re: And the left-hand column contains far fewer Liverpool supporters

I would be interested to know the genders and ages of who was sampled. I would bet a doughnut that women make up a smaller portion of the sample in Saudia Arabis and the UAE, if they were even sampled.

Oh, and be grateful that I didn't immediately resort to posting large quantities of gay porn, which is a weapon I hold in reserve.
