    It looks like that chicken on the left was caught mid-dance step. It all does look delicious though. I've been slacking, and am going to have to go on a smoking tear when we get back from the other side of the pond.

    There's no deadline. You can request anything you want whenever you want. Of course, that doesn't meany anybody's getting anything besides stories...some of which might even be true. Coincidentally, today was my last day at the office until after my 3-week vacation. And even after taking that I'll still have 110 days of accrued paid vacation left. Ignoring holidays could take 5 full calendar months off in a row...and when I came back I would have nearly 2 weeks of new vacation time that accrued while I was out for the 5 months. I work too damned much.

    I take it that you're currently using your phone as a hot-spot for a laptop/notebook computer? That's an average of about 270MB/day, 7 days/week, which is a lot of data. It's the equivalent of something like streaming 4.5 hours of hi-bit rate music (MP3 audio) every day, or ~45 minutes of video every day. Is this something work-related? Or do you possibly have something going on in the background on your phone or laptop that you're not aware of that's chewing up cellular data? That's pretty common. Anything requiring security should be going across an encrypted SSL connection anyway. Think the "https" (note that extra "s", which stands for "secure", compared with the usual "http") protocol designator you see in your browser's URL bar when you access secure sites like your bank, Amazon, etc. This means that all of the data being exchanged between your computing device (PC, tablet, phone, etc) and the website is encrypted, including your login info, so that even if someone were "sniffing" the airwaves to intercept Wi-Fi traffic, any data they're able to see will be meaningless gobbledygook to them. If you're not using encrypted connections then you have a problem already. Remember that your cellular connection is even more "public" and spread over a larger area than that with a nearby Wi-Fi hot-spot. Yeah, but using those that are available whenever possible will still cut down on your total cellular data usage to at least some degree. According to Verizon's current plan info, that $35/mo is for the whole package, not just the data. As a result, you can get an 8GB version of the same plan for $70/mo. So 4x the data allowance, but only 2x the total cost (not counting taxes, fees and all of the other stuff they tack onto your bill). Or, for another $5/mo ($75 total, which appears to require that you enroll in AutoPay, which I prefer anyway) you can get their unlimited data plan, which would be the way to go if you're routinely exceeding 8GB of usage/mo. Of course, there are a lot of other providers and options, but I don't have the time to look at all of them now. Maybe later tonight.

    First, which mobile carrier are you currently with? Second, let's define exactly what "little bit of mobile data is no longer sufficient" means, as in...how little is the amount of data that's included per month with your current mobile plan, and by how much are you thinking that isn't sufficient compared with what you now need? Third, I'm assuming that when you need to use data you're generally not in the vicinity of a free Wi-Fi hot-spot you could be connecting to. Or is that something you haven't tried yet?

    Of the three different needles that one comes with, which one looks the most like what you have? Nothing substantial in size. Some semi-coursely ground spices, but nothing like the chunks of herbs that are in most Italian dressings.

    I use one of the cheap-o plastic injectors that came with a bottle of one of the Tony Chachere marinades. It has a fairly large needle and works fine for me, but I've never tried it with Italian dressing. Do an Amazon.com search on "marinade injector" and you'll find a wealth of options, including ones like this with different needles, some of which look like they'd work quite well marinades containing solid bits like you have in Italian dressing. Here's one example: https://www.amazon.com/Injector-marinade-Stainless-Capacity-Marinade/dp/B071WZ68SJ/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?ie=UTF8&qid=1527625396&sr=8-1-spons&keywords=marinade+injector&psc=1

    My Grape Nuts question was never addressed, so I just assumed you were backlogged and I held off asking anything else. I was going to suggest the "Disappearing cash, hopes and dreams" trick, but now that I remember it....that one actually comes into play later on.
