    The recipe I linked calls for only 2 lbs of meat (cubed chuck), not 4. And it should result in enough chili for 3-4 servings, or slightly more/less depending on the presence/absencebof a side (cornbread, for instance) and how hungry you are.

    It means I clicked the right button on my mouse while hovering the cursor over the line you posted, then selected "Save As..." from the pop-up menu in order to save the link on my PC.

    A few years ago my wife and son gave me the two-piece Octane quiver. It had a magnet in the hood that held the arrows in place rather than foam. The problem was that they had an engineering/manufacturing defect with the aluminum part that attached each half to the bow that caused them to just sheer right off when you tried to tighten them down at all. I contacted Octane and they acknowledged the problem, saying it was an issue with one of their suppliers, but that it had since been worked out. They sent me replacements for the failed parts...and the replacements promptly failed in exactly the same way. A shame, really, as I really liked everything else about the quiver.

    I think the thing that made me feel the most like a lazy-ass was this episode of Tred Barta's show (remember Tred?) where he and another guy have to get a bull moose out of the beaver pond it went down in, then make multiple trips to pack it out using a canoe that they had to portage between ponds.

    Up until a few years ago when I discovered the blues I was one of those people who thought Bonnie Raitt was just a country/western singer (because that's where she was making money when I first heard of her), being utterly ignorant of her real roots as a damned good blues artist. In addition to being a fine solo act, she's done some really good duets with many of the legends of the genre.

    Had a couple of tornado-producing storms tear through the DFW area last night, with one that just missed the part of town I live in, and another that missed my office by about 1 block. This was taken from a house in the neighborhood just up the street from mine:

    Yep. Install the Imgur app on your phone and it will show up as one of the options when you want to "share" a photo.

    Well, there's a nice start to the season. Congratulations. Not as such, no. I do stay on the ground, usually right up against a tree (to my back) with a little (usually dead) foliage about 2 ft high or so all around me. That has made for surprisingly effective cover over the years, and I've had numerous critters (deer include) walk right up to/past me so long as I stay still. Of course, drawing a bow without getting busted is a lot more challenging than it would be in a blind/tree stand...but that's been half the fun.

    This past Saturday morning was the first chance I had to get out, because it was the first time the temperature has been low enough to keep you from being bled dry by mosquitoes on the walk in/out. In two days we went from ~90F to needing thermal underwear and gloves in the morning. Fall? Never heard of it. The only deer I saw was a doe that was bedded down in some thick stuff about 20 yds from where I set up. I made a hell of a racket getting there, what with acorns covering just about every sq foot of ground. But she waited until I got all situated, then jumped up and made a bee-line for parts unknown. Oh well...at least the squirrels kept me company.
