Not sure. I'm sure they'll re-play it at some point; it was really well done.

My sister gave me a bunch of my old school papers that she found at my dad's. I kept the Weekly Readers (memba those?) from before and after the explosion.

My boys will only eat Bisquick pancakes. I actually like the way they turn out - very fluffy.

I also use Bisquick to make Chicken and Dumplings (real chicken and dumplings, not spaetzles that my MIL calls dumplings). I may have to make that tomorrow.

Heh chicken and dumplings is my favorite dish. One year, my mom did what I wanted for my birthday: Made chicken and dumplings with EXTRA dumplings... and I had a plate FULL of nothing but dumplings and chicken gravy on top. I Don't need the chicken. ;)

Thank you, now I know what to do with the left over beer can chicken I made!

BTW, I did not have a can of beer, so I used an orange soda and damn if you could not taste it in the chicken!

Oh AS! That is going to be a hugh pile of no fun at all.

And I recommend drinking the beer during, not after!

We checked ours before we left for work and it was minimal water coming up the drain. <yuck!> Let's hope it stayed that way.

that's what i'm fearing... one house gets sewer back up, another surface water - water through the windows in the basement, and the 3rd gets tons of seepage, but it has a sump pump, so it's low on the list to do something.

unfortunately, that one is mine...

my parents are on vacation and they are ususally "in charge of" my gramma's house. SO, i get to take care of both of their basements...

Oh, what a great idea!

My uncle left some cans of beer at my Grandmother's apartment and I was just getting ready to throw them away. I'll make chicken instead :)
