Dallas Cowboys O-Line next year - Powerman
I think this could be the best offensive line since the Jimmy Johnson days in Dallas. They already had a solid line last year and drafted 2 offensive tackles before they acquired Collins. If just one of those 3 tackles pans out to be an all pro caliber player early on they could be very difficult ...

Do you have a culinary torch? What do you use it for? - Powerman
I bought one a while back and still haven't used it. Mainly got it to make Creme Brulee just haven't gotten around to it yet. I've seen some sushi chefs use it to sear tuna and I assume it would be good for getting a good crust on a steak or maybe a ham glaze. Any other good uses for it?...

Having some coworkers over for dinner soon - suggestions - Powerman
Most of these guys are from Louisiana and we're in Texas right now. What would be more appropriate? Louisiana food like a Gumbo or should I whip up something more Texas themed like a Chili or some Tex Mex? I don't think it really matters either way as they'll be grateful. They just want to s...

She claims (and I don't know if she's full of it) that Texas rates are substantially higher than national rat...
