  1. Dammit, I can't ignore leggo because she's a moderator. RG, ban her
  2. I might have to put a few members on "ignore" for the next month or so, starting with Master Slacker and leggo.
  3. Made chili yesterday with tomatoes and jalepenos we grew in the garden and venison I harvested in the back yard. Besides the spices the only ingredient we didn't "make" were the kidney beans. Might have to try to grow those next year.
  4. Holy crap, blast from the past! Welcome back dude. I think you were around for JR's divorce. Since then: JR got married. JR got divorced. JR got married again, and we haven't seen him here since. I see him every once in a while and he seems pretty happy. So I think third time's a charm. I met Elephant Girl through engineergurl. We hit it off and got married. Some of the other old timers have kind of faded away, but there's newer old timers filling in too. I'll let the rest of them fill you in on what's up.
  5. Not cooking per se, but I'm not creating another thread for this. I'm picking up my venison from the processor this weekend. I also bought a new electric smoker. I'm planning to make some venison jerky. Any recipes and/or tips?
  6. We ended up stopping at Dunham's around 11 PM on thanksgiving. I bought a pop up tent blind, an electric smoker and a gun cabinet. Used the blind to get a deer in my back yard Friday, stored the gun in the cabinet and will hopefully be smoking some jerky from it in the smoker in a week or so. So I'd say that was a good haul. We also went to Meijer on Thanksgiving morning and bought eight 35-lb pails of cat litter for $10/each, and then Blain's on Satuday and got two bags of dog food and a bag of cat food for about 40% off. How exciting. My wife made an order at 1 am Thursday for a new fitbit and a Christmas tree. All in all we didn't go too crazy this year. Seems like the deals weren't that great. Though I did go to Meijer this morning for toys 20% off plus $10 off $50 in Legos. Now my niece is getting a nice Harry Potter Lego set this year.
  7. In my experience they aren't going to make that suggestion until there is absolutely nothing left to do... e.g. my cat was seizing continually and uncontrollably with a temperature much below normal and the vet was ready to call the neurologist. And I was like, uhhhh, my cat's 17 years old, we're not doing brain surgery on it.
  8. Jim Cantore I assume? I'm pretty sure my wife feels the same way about him.
  9. Interesting--there is a citation from the Battle Creek Enquirer, which is only about 30 miles from my house. But I've never heard the term before.
  10. Is a carry-in the same as a potluck?
  11. Business socks? (sorry, couldn't resist)
  12. Happy birthday @leggo PE! You're only the second person I know that shares my birthday (not including Mickey Mouse), with the other one being my boss' boss. Welcome to your 30s? Don't worry, the 40s get even better! Thanks everyone! We celebrated with sushi, and my mom visited over the weekend. I also bought my first-ever hunting license yesterday (as an apprentice since I haven't taken the hunter safety class yet) so hopefully there will be venison in my future.
  13. The time for that song is, never ever ever ever.
  14. So what are you baking for your birthday?
  15. You know, Paul Menard the NASCAR driver.
