    Funny you should mention that. It came with one that spans the 2 burners on the left. It's the part my wife was most eager to try out, and I suspect I'm going to be eating pancakes and grilled cheese sandwiches for the next 2 weeks. It also came with an attachment that holds a wok over the center burner...so now I need a wok....and a place to store it.

    Henceforth, all of my cooking will be done using these engines from the booster stage of a Saturn V rocket (just installed in my kitchen about an hour ago). The center burner puts out 22,000 BTUs, so I can boil water right-damned-now.

    I've got a pile of St. Louis cut ribs (8 or 9 racks) in the freezer I need to start doing something with. This might be the inspiration I needed.

    Nice. I especially like the camo paint job. I almost couldn't find it in the pic.

    Yeah, Cruise is shorter and a lot older, but he keeps in shape doing his own stunts and stuff. Bieber is a 5'9" bean pole who weighs something like 145 lbs soaking wet. Plus, Cruise is just bat-shit crazy. I'm betting the Biebs would get his clock cleaned.

    Some of our stuff is cloud-based, our servers are all backed up to off-site storage and we're hoping that they'll let one or two of us in for long enough to retrieve some of our individual workstations so we can take them home and get some work done from there. So with a little luck we should be able to get something done while things are being cleaned up and repaired. But, yeah...that much is liable to take quite a while. Even after they get all the glass cleaned up, water dried up and power restored I suspect it'll be some time until they get the windows replaced, and there's no way the place will be cool enough to work in until after that happens. I'm just glad this happened on a Sunday instead of the middle of a work day. The winds came up pretty quickly and without much warning (typical TX weather), and I'm sure that a lot of people would have been seriously injured (or worse) when all that glass came flying in with us all sitting at our desks.

    Step in and make this happen and I promise to renew my subscription AND pony up the pay-per-view fee for the event. Bieber posts bizarre tweet, challenges Tom Cruise to a fight

    Update: Photo updated to add a red circle showing which office is mine. This is the office building where I work, following yesterday's wind rampage through Dallas. My company occupies the 2nd floor from the top, mostly under the "BancorpSouth" sign, and my personal office is the one just to the right of the "h" in "South". What look like two white vertical beams are the walls. The windows are (or rather, were) floor-to-ceiling, so you can imagine how much shattered glass must be all over inside these offices. We can't get into the building yet, so we have no idea how much damage has been done. It was also raining like hell when this happened, so there's likely significant water damage as well. Fortunately our servers are all in a room in the interior of the building, so at least they're intact...assuming the driving rain didn't flood the floor above ours and then leak down into the server room. Needless to say there's going to be some productivity loss for this week.

    I wouldn't have believed this sighting if it hadn't been caught on the virtual trail cam.

    After 72 days dry curing in the fridge, my capicola has reached it's target level of dehydration and is ready for tasting. (Full size: https://i.imgur.com/5B1MBuU.jpg) It's a bit chewier (almost jerky-like) around the perimeter than I expected, but the paprika and other spices (mostly the paprika) combined with the dry aging give it an intense and delicious flavor. I'm thinking this would be great on a homemade pizza. Maybe that's something to try this weekend, if I have the time.

    I posted these guys when I learned about them a couple of years ago and they were only known for doing Chicago tunes. Now they've expanded into Earth, Wind & Fire territory, and doing just as good a job of it. The young lady on vocals is a nice bonus.

    It does look nervous, doesn't it? BC never told us that he's originally from Oklahoma.
