    Oddly, I’ve found free range steaks tougher than I’m used to as well. But Adolph’s is my friend.

    The whole darn country wants Black Angus rather than basic grain fed beef. It used to cost more, but now it’s the same price and pretty common. It’s becoming impossible to find non-angus stew beef and difficult to find non-angus pot roast. I was told by the butcher that most of the non-angus meat you [...]

    Click on it. He’ll have to pay FDL every time you click.

    Yeah, the wife does roasted beans and grinds them herself. says it’s WAY better.

    I ordered a sampler for my wife. She had positive things to say about all but one of the flavors (don’t ask me which one), but when the time came to get more she stuck with her blue mountain. Story: She “discovered” Blue Mountain when we were leaving Jamaica. There was a cheerful lady giving [...]

    You coffee fiends are all alike!

    What did the world do for caffeine before coffee? Or did we just slog through the day until lunch?

    Good Morning All! Ah, coffee. The drink loved by billions that I simply can’t stand. I’ve had to learn a bit about it because my wife is a coffee fiend, but I have to take others opinions as to if a given coffee tastes good. Jamaican Blue Mountain is supposed to be the best coffee [...]

    No, there are no painless choices for the JG. But all of Japan is in trouble. Based on their literature, now is when Japan is normally rescued by an undisciplined gang of half naked teenagers.

    Our it could be that the JG has made the conscious decision that the cost to Japan from people living in hot areas is less than the cost of evacuating the areas.

    Which would make them evil, not dishonest.

    We won’t. International treaty stops the shipment of nuclear waste by water.

    We’ll help them to convince people it’s not hot and build underpriced apartments and houses on it.

    Boxturtle (And then point out how popular the housing developments are)

    A decision that needed to be made and that’s a pretty logical place to put that dump. A heck of a lot better than having everything scattered about. These folks are among the first to actually lose land to this mess, the JG pretends that everybody will be able to go home. But this won’t [...]

    They’ve released several videos. What they aren’t releasing is the locations in the pool where they’ve removed fuel and where fuel still is. It’s logical they’d get the easy racks first and save the worst for last. More room to work, less chance on an inadvertent criticality.I still think there are at least a few [...]

    I’ve heard of that in various occupations. Chef and Mechanic are two that I remember. Nerves are wonderful things. There was a documented case years back of a blind man who could read by feeling the ink on a page. Boxturtle (it is disturbing to see a chef quick touch hot oil to see if [...]

    Nature seems determined to be a Mother today. I’m gonna have to set up my grill in the garage door opening and hope the smoke gets sucked outside. The neighbor is out stoking his huge smoker (we refer to it as Grillzilla) and glaring at the sky. He’s got a houseful and it’ll suck to [...]

    Ah, yes. In their defense, those trailers were purchased because congress told FEMA (like always) do everything as cheap as possible. Those trailers were unquestionably the cheapest out there.

    I felt exactly how you would feel if you were getting ready to launch and knew you were sitting on top of two million parts — all [...]

    I don’t know that we’ve killed the entire pacific. But the area between the china coast and the US west coast north to the Bering sea is in trouble and that’s our major west coast fisheries. Here’s the curve: Japan is going to have to import a lot of food, mainly seafood. Well their main [...]

    I put up with things from those kittens I would never tolerate from a human. What genetic aberration makes me so stupid?

    Every stinkin’ reactor site in the world is worry. ALL are located near large amounts of fresh water, water that will be useless in the case of a meltdown. Many are near fault lines. I’m actually less worried about Ukraine reactors than I am about Diablo canyon. The soldiers will be careful NOT to hit [...]
