    Favorite PC Game

    The expansions add a lot of new Civs, some of which are very cool. The latest expansion made the religious victory much harder. When it first came out, I thought it was the easiest way to win. The current "create new game" menu has an option to go back to previous versions, I'm not sure...

    Gross and Disgusting Food Combo Fads

    I read about peanut butter and pickle sandwiches and tried them. Sounds weird but they taste good with bread and butter pickles.

    Just started the DC sniper podcast today during my walk. good stuff. Thanks for the tip.

    I love podcasts

    Another great podcast, in fact my first. is Slow Burn. I was reminded of it when I just saw that they've made a TV show about it on Epix, whatever that is. The First season is about the Watergate saga. It starts out talking about Martha Mitchell. I had forgotten about her but when her name...

    Tried the Impossible Whopper Today... and It Tasted Like a Whopper

    I'd want to see the ingredients list before I put one of those "burgers" into my mouth--regardless of the taste. :shrug

    Healthy Recipes Healthy Choices

    That's right up my alley. Including, but not limited to, skinning chicken thighs. I suspect that shrimp would be a delicious substitute for the ham but that's just me reading and trying to taste a written recipe. I'm inspired!

    Sorry about that, sparky. I knew it existed but I didn't know the details.

    Rats!

    Rats having an astounding reproductive rate. Emphasis on astounding. A few years ago, I read about experiments with Rat birth control that sounded promising. Not sure what ever became of it. eta - Here's a link about it. The one I read might have been in The Atlantic. Regardless, it was...

    Presidents' Day

    What is Presidents' Day? That's when the President steps out of the WH and if they see their shadow, we're in for another year of bullcrap.

    Get an air fryer - it's a must-have appliance

    I love tortilla pizza and your pita bread idea sound like it's worth a try! If you don't have an air fryer, here's how to do it using a cast iron skillet and a broiler. I recommend having all of the ingredients prepped and ready to go because the tortilla can burn easily if one takes too long...

    Bernie too old?

    Over Trump who is also too old IMO? Sure, I would consider them based solely upon age. At some point, too old is too old, at least for me, and they have all passed my threshold. Like I said earlier, I prefer someone in their 50's or early 60's. But yeah, there are certainly other factors...

    Bernie too old?

    Don't forget Bloomberg. Feb. 14, 1942.

    Bernie too old?

    My issue is with age and not with any particular candidate. Why is that so hard to understand? I also chose to focus on the current group and not to dredge up historical candidates. For instance, I also left out Reagan and probably a slew of others from the past.

    Bernie too old?

    Who is the only woman on that list? Why it's Elizabeth! Who has a longer life expectancy in the US? Why it's women! Do you see my train of thought here? I did mention females -possibly- being graded on a different scale. That is far different than saying only Warren should be graded...

    Bernie too old?

    Let me repeat myself. I mentioned all of the candidates that I believe are too old. Trump is a candidate as well as the others I mentioned. He was born 6/14/46 according to Wiki which makes him 74 when he runs again. Not a spring chicken by any measure and older than Warren who, according to...

    Well? What did you have for dinner tonight??

    My son loves ground meat cooked with tack seasoning, onion, and tomato sauce served on pasta. We ate it weekly when he was living here. Cooking with beans isn't "gourmet" In fact, some would call it very simple food. It's also not hard, especially out of a can, isn't hard. Easier than...

    Instant pot...

    Yep. Stand a spoon up in it. Great description. Chicken wings have a lot of connective tissue so they make a good choice. Chicken feet are a lot cheaper than wings where I shop so that's why I chose them. The end product still tastes like chicken stock. I cook mine for 90 minutes in the...

    Instant pot...

    Yes. It tastes like chicken stock. I've also used two or three chicken carcasses which I save up in the freezer. They have a lot of connective tissue as well which I consider to be the key.

    Instant pot...

    Just made chicken stock with it. 2 ribs of celery cut in half to fit in pot 2 carrots cut in half as well 2 onions cut in half 2 bay leaves ~dozen whole peppercorns 1.5 lbs of chicken feet. cook for 90 minutes The final product is thick with gelatin.

    If he rises in the polls, will we be able to see him then? Heard that on the radio this morning. Made me laugh.

    Tacos. I followed this recipe, more or less. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/voraciously/wp/2019/10/23/the-secret-to-these-chili-lime-black-bean-tacos-20-minutes-and-a-few-pantry-staples/ The pickled onions are key imo. I've done them before but not with lime juice. I often do this...

    Michael Lewis is one of my favorite authors. I was first exposed to him when someone recommended reading Liar's Poker for insight into the Securitized Mortgage industry where I had just started working at the time. You may be more familiar with him from the movies Money Ball and The Big Short...

    Bernie too old?

    I've been debating Trump for ~4 years now in other venues. I'm tired of it. I've not seen any one convince another to change their opinion. It's pointless at this point unless one simply wants to be argumentative.
