| Food and Drink Board|| Another Word About High Hat - VOR on 3/6/14 at 11:23 pm|
We went there just for the hell of it tonight. I always enjoy my visits.
I had the catfish, braised greens, field peas and cornbread (I'm a man of the people). My wife had a vegetable plate.
The warm pecan pie with Jack Daniels ice cream for dessert.
Two whiskey drinks for me and a ...
| Music Board|| Old Audio Equipment Give Away. - VOR on 3/6/14 at 9:41 am|
I have some 80's era equipment if anyone wants it.
Sony 5 CD carousel
Sony cassette player (the classic :lol:)
Some of it may need minor repair work but I'm pretty sure it's all worth keeping/salvaging. I hate to just throw it out.
| Pelicans Talk|| Have There Been Any Rumors . . . - VOR on 3/3/14 at 7:26 pm|
. . . about the Pels trading into the draft somehow? Of course, it's been mentioned here a bit as an unlikely possibility, but I thought I heard something specific while halfway listening to the sports earlier today. Just curious. Nothing else of note to talk about....

| Pelicans Talk|| About This Team Long Term - VOR on 2/23/14 at 9:48 pm|
I'm not sure I have anything to say other than the fact that I've had it. I really want to have some reason to get excited about a team for which I bought season tickets the first day it arrived.
I can still make a somewhat rational argument for giving Dell and Monty another season, but, frick it,...
| Food and Drink Board|| Speaking of Pho and Magasin - VOR on 2/20/14 at 7:39 am|
It had been awhile since I tried the pho at Magasin, so we walked over there the other night for dinner. I tried the combination (meatball, flank steak and brisket).
Have to report that it was damned good. The broth was truly tasty and had a depth of flavor (not heavy but very tasty) that rea...
| Food and Drink Board|| I will say this about frozen okra . . . - VOR on 2/8/14 at 7:43 pm|
. . . it works fine in shrimp, andouille and okra gumbo.
Hey Wise, kiss my ass. :lol:
And nothing out of you, OB. :lol:...

| Food and Drink Board|| Freezing Redfish Filets - VOR on 2/2/14 at 7:19 pm|
My neighbor brought over a couple of redfish filets today. They were caught yesterday.
Problem is I already had some fish for tonight and I'm going to a game tomorrow night. Seems best to freeze, right?
It's been a long time since I've thought about freezing fresh fish. Can't remember d...
| Music Board|| Hey! Let's Talk About Pink and Britney. - VOR on 1/27/14 at 9:42 pm|
First of all, kiss my ass. I'm just discussing music and something that interests me (in a depressing way).
Okay, in the last couple of weeks I've been channel surfing, and I've run across Pink's "The Truth About Love" tour and Britney's "Femme Fatale" tour. Let's call them sociological-musical ...
| Pelicans Talk|| Life Is Better Than I Thought - VOR on 1/26/14 at 7:46 pm|
Yeah, we've got problems, but holy crap we have a genuine once in a decade if not generation player. And the kid has a great attitude and works hard.
It would be interesting to know what the record would be with Jrue and Anderson in the lineup, but this situation is giving playing time to guys...
| O-T Lounge|| Squirrels in the House - VOR on 1/26/14 at 11:03 am|
I started a thread on the Outdoor Board because I'm skeered of 'da OT.
frick it . . . here's the deal . . .
We live in a fairly small side hall cottage in Uptown N.O. The master bedroom is at the front of the house. It has vaulted ceilings, so there is no real attic. Just the space between ce...

This topic may have been covered, so I'm sorry if it has. And sorry if a little long but I want to be clear.

| Food and Drink Board|| Have to Upgrade Lucky Rooster - VOR on 1/26/14 at 12:17 am|
The other day in some thread, I think I said that I found the place to be inconsistent, etc.
We stopped in tonight on the way home, and I think I'm giving it an upgraded review. It's definitely a cut above the other places that those guys (or any combination of those guys) own in town.
| Food and Drink Board|| Yet Another Cast Iron Thread - VOR on 1/22/14 at 8:34 pm|
I'm perplexed. I just don't get it.
I've seasoned my skillet at least three times, using the most common and recommended methods. But it still gathers "crust" or whatever after cooking and wiping with a cloth or paper towel.
Example. I used olive oil mixed with some butter to saute' some...
| Pelicans Talk|| Dell Likes Our Core . . . No Worries - VOR on 1/19/14 at 10:33 am|
He doesn't identify specific needs, really.
Injuries have been the problem.
And he's happy with Monty.
ETA: Oh, he's also happy with Gordon and says he is not being shopped.
| Pelicans Talk|| Another thing about tanking and draft class - VOR on 1/18/14 at 4:03 pm|
I'm no NBA scout, but I've just started paying attention to this season's college ball and I'm not yet convinced there are any "can't misses" among this class.
Am I just being too critical? Am I unrealistic? Maybe we see the real deals closer to tourney time. ...
| Pelicans Talk|| About EG - VOR on 1/15/14 at 8:08 pm|
Okay, he's got 19 points in the first half so far.
His contract sucks . . . but . . .
For those who call him a "cancer" (and there have been such posts within the last 72 hours), please give examples of how he is a "cancer".
Other than the fact he doesn't smile much and isn't particularl...

Old fart question . . .
I was just channel surfing last night and hit some late night music station and heard Vampire Weekend, One Republic and Fun within about 20-30 minutes.
Here's the question. Really? This is where pop music is today? Yikes! Am I overreacting? ...
| Tiger Rant|| Honest Question for the Rant - VOR on 1/1/14 at 7:57 pm|
I don't spend a lot of time on this board for the sake of my own sanity. But I have a question that's not meant as a flame, troll, etc.
How much of the nonsensical, almost constant dissatisfaction with and ridiculous criticism of the team's performance, the play calling, Miles in general, "too c...
| Pelicans Talk|| I Am the Greatest Husband in the World - VOR on 12/30/13 at 10:46 pm|
My wife wanted me to go with her to an event tonight, and I gave up my tickets. I haven't bitched to her at all. I just smiled and said no problem.
So . . . since, in my opinion, I have earned a ton of points, what should I use them for? Should I be allowed to date for the next year? Should I...

So it's been suggested that this could signal a move in the near future, possibly for another big man. Not a blockbuster trade, perhaps, but a useful one.
bullshite? Likely? ...
| Pelicans Talk|| Reason for Optimism That's Not Really Sunshine Pumping - VOR on 12/14/13 at 8:19 am|
I thought about it this morning.
The three guards really do seem to be figuring it out now. Jrue is coming into his own. Gordon, for the most part, is playing very well. And 'Reke is night and day from the first few games of his season (but his ankle needs to stay solid), and can get to the ri...
| Food and Drink Board|| Oh, about the burger issue . . . - VOR on 12/13/13 at 10:17 pm|
We went to Company Burger for the first time in months. Both had the lamb burger. Also onion rings.
Just confirmed what an idiot that guy is who said their burgers are comparable to Wendy's or a bar burger. Company Burger may not the best "elite" or "gourmet" burger in town, b...
| Pelicans Talk|| So, 3 and 2 . . . - VOR on 12/13/13 at 9:52 pm|
since December 1 without AD and, for the most part, without 'Reke. Not bad.
Whuhro. Just looked at the remaining 8 games in December. frick it. I say we go 4-4. AD returns by the first weekend in January. Then we get serious. ...
| Political Talk|| About Edward Snowden - VOR on 12/12/13 at 5:49 pm|
I was just watching the news and it seems Snowden has some info truly more damaging to US security than that he's released. He's suggested he's willing to keep it secure and return to America in return for amnesty (sorry if Germans).
Anyway, do any of you folks consider this guy some kind of her...

Damn, it doesn't take long to cook down in a crock pot. But tastes pretty good with turnips, yams, new potatoes, onions, garlic, thyme, Kosher salt and cracked pepper. Oh, also dry rubbed with dry mustard, coriander, white pepper and ginger.
Came out great, but next time I may actually pay at...
