| Political Talk|| Oregon's Healthcare Exchange Enrollment - Jax-Tiger on 11/24/13 at 10:00 pm|
Oregon had been running a huge (and expensive) ad campaign touting their health care exchange, "Cover Oregon". They have run commercials with Portland Trailblazers and Timbers stars. They have billboards all over the state. They have politicians and celebrities pitching for them.

and feels that Socialism is the means to that end? I have a friend that I have debated politics for years with and every time I prove to him that the social programs he espouses make things worse for everybody, he tells me that is part of the goal. We use too many resources - we need the governmen...
| O-T Lounge|| Inhumane Working Conditions - Jax-Tiger on 10/23/13 at 7:07 pm|
First, let me say, I work for Nike, in Beaverton, OR. They just put four 80" TV's up on the wall in the open area while I work. They show sports all the time. How am I supposed to get any work done? This is some sort of sick joke... I guess I'll have to get used to it......

| O-T Lounge|| Mineral rights question. Can I prevent drilling on my land - Jax-Tiger on 10/8/13 at 1:17 pm|
If I only own 1/3 of the mineral rights?
My wife is going to sell her 1/3 share of the her parents estate to her sister. She wants to retain 1/3 of the passive mineral rights, but her sister is afraid that that also gives my wife the right to start driling anytime she wants.
Isn't this a ...

I didn't buy an IPA at the store I was in, because I wanted to see if they had the same beer with a fresher date at another store. It hit me then......
| Food and Drink Board|| How can my local bottle shop have almost 1400 different beers in stock, - Jax-Tiger on 10/4/13 at 3:42 pm|

How is that? Doesn't seem to matter what I'm looking for... they ran out last week.
They don't even carry all the AB, Miller, Coors, etc......
| O-T Lounge|| Can I have ONE razor for myself? - Jax-Tiger on 9/17/13 at 3:11 pm|
Why is it that when a woman shaves her legs, the blades on my razor end up less straight than Rock Hudson on a weekend bender in Key West?
I huff and I puff, I threaten, I provide incentives, and I even retaliate by leaving the toilet seat up on purpose, but it does no good. I end up going to wo...
| Food and Drink Board|| Ale Apothecary Brewery Tasting (with pics) - Jax-Tiger on 9/16/13 at 11:17 pm|
This stuff was absolutely amazing. Over 10% alcohol and it masked the booze like nothing I've ever tasted.
I tried Sahalie and Sahati. The Sahati is brewed in a 200 year old Spruce tree that he hollowed out and lined with spruce branches to act as a natural filter. He barrel aged his beers fo...

Paul from the Ale Apothecary (Bend, OR) is coming to The Beer Mongers in Portland, Monday night. He will be bringing bottles for tasting and for sale. He has a very old style way of brewing beer and uses some unusual techniques. Looking forward to tasting his beers and asking questions.

They grow some damn good tomatoes up here in Oregon. I always had trouble growing them in Florida. Looking forward to growing my own next year.
Now what do I do with these?

My wife's baking a blackberry pie. I will post pictures if she doesn't screw it up. :nana: :nana: :nana:

I get a kick out of all of the plays on the word "Hop" in the IPA names. What would we name a beer?

| Food and Drink Board|| Do you trim your steaks before you grill/cook them? Why? - Jax-Tiger on 8/10/13 at 9:38 am|
I usually don't. I sometimes ask the butcher to cut me a steak without trimming all the fat. I trim the fat after cooking - to get the maximum flavor while cooking. Anybody else do this?...

The last week of August will be the first week my kids spend in their new home. They have a somewhat negative attitude about moving, so I'd like to "wow" them during their first week. I'm taking the week off, and would like to do some things that they will enjoy.
Any suggestions would be welcom...

The guy next to me was texting on his phone while we were landing in Atlanta, last night. I tapped him on the arm and told him to turn it off. He slipped it in his pocket and I told him it needed to be "off". He did it, but he gave me the "I'm important and why are you being such a dick", look. ...

Foe? Fuh? Something else?
It's delicious any which way you say it, but we had this discussion at lunch, and the Korean guy we had with us says that either way is fine. Of course, he's Korean, not Vietnamese......

I recently tried an organic ketchup from the Portland Ketchup Company. Crazy good.
I didn't know ketchup could be so much better than what I've been using all my life...
