    It's dismaying that so many favor unconstitutional prior restraint on an enumerated fundamental right with no due process (the support for banning firearm purchases for people on watch/no-fly lists).

    Even though they had their share of success and were even inducted into the R&R Hall of Fame last year, I've always thought that Cheap Trick was still somewhat underrated. <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/dFkbSAH7yb4?rel=0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/-qgpewMCVjs?rel=0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/ADWG6EXrbcE?rel=0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> I even forgave them for covering some classic Fats Domino because they did such a good job with it.... <iframe width="560" height="315" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/EyW1p7SpYW8?rel=0" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> The problem is that my favorite of theirs...Surrender...was forever ruined for me by this segment from the Universal Studios Orlando commercial that aired in 2003-sh.

    We're so old. I didn't have Captain Fantastic, but I did get both Goodbye Yellow Brick Road and Caribou when they came out in '73 & '74, respectively. Now, in retrospect, I'm not really sure why...other than the fact that I was 12/13 years old at the time...and it was the '70s.

    Now that you mention it....the young guy in the office next to mine is from Jordan, as is his wife. I've been acting as sort of his professional mentor for quite a while, and every time I help him out with something in any significant way (including non-work-related stuff) he goes home and tells his wife about it. She then makes a dessert or some other dish and then he brings some in for me as a show of gratitude. Luckily she's quite the good little cook, and makes a particularly delicious Kanafah (I'll let you Google that one). I'll bet I could put a bug in his ear about my fondness for Falafel and end up getting a regular supply delivered to my desk free of charge. But that would be wrong of me....I think...maybe.

    Amazon might have competition. I told a variant of that joke at my daughter's house this past Sunday and their Dot woke up and responded, "OK, I've put Whole Foods on your shopping list." I suspect the resulting offer will be a low-ball though.

That's 2.1 miles. I'd need an astronomical reflector telescope just to see that far...and then probably still wouldn't land a hit within 50 yds of the target after a dozen tries.

    Man...I haven't seen a Miller pony since high school. They were great for chasing Bacardi straight from the bottle, and when you wanted to brag in English class about how many "beers" you put away over the weekend.

    Are you available for consultations with my company's user documentation group? They could really use some help in learning how to produce materials up to that level of professional quality.

    That's some damned pretty country. But if I didn't know it was a lighting issue I'd swear those hills in the background were mounds of sulfur.

    The guy with the monkey hanging off his neck is gripping the base of his water pistol awfully tightly while his eyes seem to be rolling back up into his head. I'm just sayin'.

    *cough* *cough* ......beats me..... *cough* *cough* But seriously, it was torn up by TPWD and the perps never apprehended, as far as I know. The incident even made it into Season 1, Episode 8 of Lone Star Law on Animal Planet. If you have a cable/satellite package that include AP you can watch the whole episode for free here (you'll need to logon using your service provider logon): https://www.animalplanet.com/tv-shows/lone-star-law/full-episodes/gator-vs-dog

    What makes you think it's a botulism risk? Did you leave it sitting on the counter for a few hours? In any event, 180F should be fine, so long as you're certain that's what the internal temp actually is.
