<quoted text>My butcher will put as many in a sack as I ask for, I just don't ask. My son is the smoker in the family. When I want ribs or brisket or a slab of salmon I just tell him I'm bringing him a present. I do steaks, birds and seafood on the grill as nature intended. Veggies are good too. We have one of those Kitchenaid stand mixers and I've debated getting the sausage attachment over and over. I keep losing because I just had to have the pasta attachments and I've used them once in about 10 years. Even then we were making papyrus.
Nature intended to have meat smoked as per our Native Americans. Ya know. We added the grills because we are civilized. I'm also a Blue Rhino customer. You have them down there? You don't? Google it. Grilling is good, but if you have the time, the texture and moistness of the food cannot match a 3-4 hour slow cook. Know what I'm saying , Bubba? Can you hear me, Knucklehead? Give me a hug.

They have the casings and tips and stuff at Bass Pro so I may have to break down and start DIYing some snozzeges. I'll let you smoke them all you want. Some of us like to watch sausage being made:-)

Do we have Blue Rhino down here? Did you really just infer that we don't have propane down south?

Those are imported turkeys from Chernobile, Russia. Its a collectors item inside the great Russian vampire:-)))))))

Get off your yumpin soapbox. I, also, eat only hotdogs that are sold by the foot. Love em - nothing else is a real dog! Salami? I don't do antipasto. YUK. I'll have to check how turkey legs are sold - never bought 'em without the bird attached. We don't make change or count change in this part of the country; we swipe cards. Henny Penny? LOL Calm down and get real, Sugar.

I understand, I really do. It's just that after four years, birthers were unable to prove their assertions and he was re-elected. With that in mind, it will take all of his second term in office to prove that you still can't prove anything wrong, after which he will be ex-president and you'll have wasted another four years wishing it went the other way.

If I were still in uniform, he'd be my commander in chief and you and I would have much stronger words.

Just recounting my month long experience in Limestone land. Great weather and I got to see an evening launch from Titusville from my 8th floor balcony on the waterfront. One day I got hit by a swarm of gross hoppers the size of clothespins. It was raining them. Bouncing of windows, doors and my back. Stung. One last thing. Only dumb people buy groceries with credit/debit cards. Because thyey can'tg count their change. Ark Yak

We have a lot of nature here, what did you expect? At least you didn't get hit by any tire iron sized bugs...you should try riding a motorcycle down here.

Come to think of it...

http://www.daytonabikeweek.com/

I got stuck waiting for the big start-up run to rumble through town. Every scooter-cop in three counties runs interference for thousands of bikes, leap frogging intersections so they don't have to stop. I stood through five light cycles at a major intersection watching the red light camera take pictures of almost every tag as they blew through the light. Those robo-tickets can't be beat and will follow them back to Kansas or Connecticut or wherever. BWAAAAHAHAHAHAHA!

In back of that Condo I stayed at, away from the ocean view, there was at least 25 White Ibis roosting on mossy stumps every morning. That's something a bird lover has etched into their memory as one of those things that CT Yankees don't see every day. Like the evening launch from Titus Ville. Actually saw the fuel tanks jettison with my Bi-Nocs. Too bad the job didn't work out. I might still be there. In those days, I could have sold and easily bought a ranch home like the Golden Girls owned. But, if it doesn't work out, you can't come back under the same circumstances. One of my regrets. Of many. Shoulda coulda woulda. Where's my hug?

No regrets whatsoever. If that had worked out, who knows if we'd have ever collided here. Besides, you make the most adorable snow angels it'd be a shame to waste a skill like that.

No, no, no. Robbers knew people walked into the market with $150 in cash so everybody stopped paying with cash, seriously. Everyone now swipes. It's the 21st century. We also have Blue Rhino here - but I get mine filled at the gas station's propane tank so I get to keep my shiny tank. Ark ark.

Robbers waiting outside our local Big Y? See, I told ya. We happen to have regular Police Patrols here and racial profiling. Ain't gonna a happen. 21st Century? Yes the only swipes are Baby Wipes. Every time you swipe, credit card companies win. You lose. While I learned the long method, you can always bring a calculator with you. It helps. That's "C-A-L-C-U-L-A-T-O-R ". Where my hug? Leg?

We couldn't prove our assertions, but neither did he. He's got money backing up his socialist goal. Fifty years from now, there will be books written about this dark period and that man. I read all about the 1960-63 era; drugs and sex addicts lived in the "maison blanche" back then. Nobody commands me if I don't respect him. Tru dat.

I knew Kennedy took prescription meds but you seem to be painting an acid tripping Marilyn Monroe into the picture. It doesn't matter, not if you remember what's important.

Short of nuclear war, there's nothing we can't undo.

BTW, I measure presidencies after they're done, it's one of the things that makes me accurate.

John Smith started the day early having set his alarm clock
(MADE IN JAPAN )
for 6 am ..

While his coffeepot
(MADE IN CHINA )

was perking, he shaved with his

electric razor
(MADE IN HONG KONG )

He put on a
dress shirt
(MADE IN SRI LANKA),

designer jeans
(MADE IN SINGAPORE)

and
tennis shoes
(MADE IN KOREA)

After cooking his breakfast in his new
electric skillet
(MADE IN INDIA)

he sat down with his
calculator
(MADE IN MEXICO)

to see how much he could spend today. After setting his
watch
(MADE IN TAIWAN )

to the radio
(MADE IN INDIA )

he got in his car
(MADE IN GERMANY )

filled it with GAS
(from Saudi Arabia )

and continued his search
for a good paying AMERICAN JOB.

At the end of yet another discouraging
and fruitless day
checking his
Computer
( made in MALAYSIA ),

John decided to relax for a while.
He put on his sandals
(MADE IN BRAZIL ),

poured himself a glass of
wine
(MADE IN FRANCE )

and turned on his
TV
(MADE IN INDONESIA ),

and then wondered why he can't
find a good paying job

in AMERICA

AND NOW HE'S HOPING HE CAN GET HELP FROM A PRESIDENT

MADE IN KENYA

You gotta keep this one circulating!
