  1. Not often. A bad habit, thinking. Once you start and people notice, why, they start expecting you to keep on thinking! Even worse, they start expecting you to think clearly and rationally. (shudder)
  2. Asparagus I tried one bite, so I can't really claim I have eaten it. Artichokes I've prepped. Tried 2 leaves. So again, I can't really claim to have eaten it.
  3. Mark this day down! Pat is right!
  4. Huitlachche (Odd, I know, since I really like mushrooms) Brains Asparagus Artichokes (too much trouble to prep and eat) Peppers hotter than serrano
  5. I googled what he had written initially to find out what it was. I was asking for clarification and if my assumption on what he meant was correct. Medical technology is rapidly changing, you never know what new terms will appear.
  6. Thank you, Bob, for taking the time to keep us updated on the goings on. In your update, did you maybe mean "immunity therapy?" Hang onto the hope. And, as a few others have said, take care of yourself. You are no good to your bride if you keel over.
  7. A good suggestion for stashing in your car, too.
  8. That's not "soup" that is "overcooked, under-seasoned cauliflower." At the very least start with sauteed onions and garlic. Here is what Lisa wrote down last July when I asked her how she made it. It changes a bit every time. Maybe more onion, or some garlic, maybe some carrots, or garbanzos rather than white beans, different herbs added.
  9. That kind of tells me that you have never been a big fan of it. "It's OK , I'll eat it if it's served but I'd never ask for it. " kind of thing. Which means you will likely never care for the soup. My wife makes it about once a week. I usually really, really like it. Been a few times that we have both said, "Well, it's OK." But we expect more than "just ok." So we doctor it. Friday she made a big pot of it. I had 3 bowls of it that night. Reminded me of a good chowder base. i was going to add some bacon and corn to it to turn it into corn chowder for tonight but it was all gone.
  10. Let's go back to the basics. Do you like cauliflower? If the answer is anything weaker than "Yes, I like Italy lot" you won't care for it as soup.
  11. At least your sense of humor isn't broken
  12. You have to read the rating on the safe. Most "fireproof" safes are "fire resistant" and offer only a limited protection. They may be rated something like "30 minutes at 1200 degrees F" with a theoretical maximum internal temperature of 350 degrees F. https://www.deansafe.com/pages/an-explanation-of-fire-ratings-for-home-safes-and-gun-safes https://www.consumerreports.org/cro/2011/01/choosing-and-using-a-home-safe/index.htm
  13. When I was there we had Big Bertha, a large downdraft kiln, that was used mainly for bisque firing and had a roll in, roll out rack and Little Bertha which was about a 24 cubic foot downdraft for glaze firing up to Cone 10. Then a small downdraft that was designated as a salt kiln. An Olson 36 and an Olson 24 updraft kilns that were used mainly for glaze firing. There were 5 or 6 electrics that were used for lowfire and ceramic sculpture ware.
  14. I saw a video a couple of days ago of about two minutes of golf ball sized hail in Australia. You guys can't seem to catch a break.
  15. It depends on the type of brick he used. If you use a soft insulating fire brick, no problem. In college (then it was Palomar Junior College) I took some pottery classes and had a job as an assistant in that department. Two of the kilns didn't have a swinging door, we just bricked it up. Had to have a spyhole to look at the cones or to draw out rings when we did a salt fire. Used a soft brick to plug it (unless it was a salt fire) and it would be glowing yellow on the inside end but you could hold the outside without a glove.
  16. That was when there was still some grace and elegance to the Hollywood big-shots. Men in at least a decent suit if not a tuxedo. Women in gowns that were gowns and not some bits of fabric designed to show off as much as possible without impeding traffic or scaring the horses. Awards were announced, actors came up, thanked everyone, and walked off. They didn't try to make it into a platform for social engineering.
  17. Now that you mention it, I would have to say, "NOPE!"
  18. O God of spirits and of all flesh, Who hast trampled down death and overthrown the Devil, and given life to Thy world, do Thou, the same Lord, give rest to the soul of Thy departed servant in a place of brightness, a place of refreshment, a place of repose, where all sickness, sighing, and sorrow have fled away. Pardon every transgression which she has committed, whether by word or deed or thought. For Thou art a good God and lovest mankind; because there is no man who lives yet does not sin, for Thou only art without sin, Thy righteousness is to all eternity, and Thy word is truth. For Thou are the Resurrection, the Life, and the Repose of Thy servants who have fallen asleep, O Christ our God, and unto Thee we ascribe glory, together with Thy Father, who is from everlasting, and Thine all-holy, good, and life-creating Spirit, now and ever unto ages of ages. Amen May He Who arose from the dead, Christ our true God, through the prayers of His all-pure Mother; of the holy, glorious and all laudable Apostles; of our holy and God-bearing Fathers; and of all the saints; establish the soul of His servant who has been taken from us, in the mansion of the righteous; give her rest in Abraham’s bosom, and number her among the just; and have mercy on us, forasmuch as He is good and loves mankind. Grant rest eternal in blessed repose, O Lord, to Thy servant who has fallen asleep, and make her memory to be eternal!
  19. Nope. Haven't for decades. Just as I don't really pay any attention to reviews by professionals. Other than, maybe to find out if they panned a movie I was thinking about seeing. If they gave it a bad review it's likely a good movies. If they laud it to the skies it is likely garbage.
