OK - what exactly is pho? Is it noodles?
Vietnamese noodle soup. It's broth, onions, cilantro, and noodles with whatever kind of meat (chicken, beef, meatballs, shrimp...) you want to tofu or no meat. You can garnish it any way you like. They serve it with Thai basil, limes, jalapeņos, and bean sprouts.

I'm a purist. lime, basil and bean sprouts with just a touch of soy my niece uses a huge amount of hoisin sauce and her daughter drowns it in hot sauce. I like that it can be personalized.

Start with the small bowl. The large bowls are HUGE and if you're like me, you won't even finish the small one. It's not good left over, so no point in taking it home...

Damn now I really want pho. There's about 70 gobazillion places here, but the two I like the best are a drive. Do I want to drive, or do I just want to go the the closest one? <sigh> Decisions, decisions...

Oh, and a couple of(wait, 3) gays are paddling down the canal, in the pouring rain. Just goes to show some peeps aint smart enough to come in out of the rain.

They have not come back yet, and it has been a deluge. They must be at someone's house having a storm party.(or they've drown)

Zimmerman acquitted. Interesting. I was thinking for sure manslaughter.

Went out with the fellas few weeks ago. None of them are normally cider drinkers, but they decided to follow my lad for the evening and pretty much drank only cider the whole night. Today, one of them said he was buying a Woodchuck Variety pack(3 bottles each of 4 different Woodchuck flavors). Said anyting he does not like, he's giving to me.:)

Wandering Aengus. Looked it up. Does not look like its distributed in FLA.

Ever had a Dicken's Cider? My wife prefers a Dicken's Cider to just about anything else.

Ugh...they're here. They're wearing matching Grumpy Cat shirts. They haven't stopped talking. I've had 3 ciders and it's still awful.

Can't say that I have, but I am open to suggestions. Is it real fruity like apple juice with a spike or is it drier? Does Binny's carry it?

Sorry! That does sound awful.

We had a lovely cookout in our courtyard and I've had one too many mike's hard lemonade. Will be falling asleep very soon

I hope we avoid a Rodney King response. Jesse Sr issued a statement that was less than helpful in my opinion.
We will see if the Martin parents sue Zimmerman and bankrupt hm the way OJ was.

Almost regardless of what happens legally, Zimmerman and anyone who looks like him or has the same name is in for a very rough time. Zimmerman is essentially unemployable under his own name.

No one won in all this.

It is a 3 hour drive from your town to mine. We have extra bedrooms from our girls and there is cider in the fridge. Tell your crew India came through after all and work remotely from Cook County until, oh, late August.

Hey, I just give it to her every night but I'd have to guess the spike is the best description.

I can't sleep (still on CA time), so I'm watching Sharknado On Demand. This is what my life has come to.

Am I being dense? You and Tonka each give your respective wives the dickens every night?

It is almost midnight on Saturday night and this joint is packed. We are a sorry bunch I fear.
