Will other network moderators go at the Dems Achilles like Fox is doing the R's? - Jake88
Fox's questions are all unique shots at the candidates. Asking Bush about his 'brother's war" , whether Trump will pledge not to run 3rd party, abortion to Walker, Huckabee, Rand Paul hating on the Patriot Act, etc. Will the democrat debate moderators be this contentious?...

Born in 1790, 10th US president's grandchildren are still alive - Jake88
I saw this a few years ago and wondered about them again tonight. Apparently both are still upright. http://mentalfloss.com/article/29842/president-john-tylers-grandsons-are-still-alive http://wtvr.com/2012/11/21/president-john-tyler-grandson-harrison-ruffin-tyler/ [quote]“John Tyler was bo...

Thoughts on giving a wine club membership as a gift? - Jake88
Anyone have experience with some of these clubs? Are the wines selected well or is it based on the vineyards paying to be the club's choice? ...

Proper recipe for Singapore Sling? - Jake88
I was curious to try something different and had never made one. I'm using 2 measures of Gin, 1 measure Cherry Brandy, 1 measure lemon juice, 1 tsp Grenadine, a lime peel and a splash of seltzer. The blurb for this recipe says it's a thirst-quencher, therefore it's not very sweet and that's how ...

Pork shoulder smell? - Jake88
I'm going to smoke a pork shoulder tomorrow and got a 9lber from Rouses yesterday. The "sell thru" date was 1/13/15. As I was removing the pork skin, I smelled the area where the leg was cut off from it and noticed a very slight scent of manure or something like it. That portion has a large bone and...

Need pointers on smoking a duck - Jake88
I've smoked chicken before and it always comes out good. With the extra fat in a store bought duck, should I puncture the skin to allow the rendered fat to drain? If so how many holes and where? When I smoke chicken I usually seperate the skin from the breast leaving it attached along the sternum...

Opinions on A Place To Bury Strangers? - Jake88
I'm in my early forties so, yeah, I'm turning into an insular old guy. I never could understand how classic rock stations could stay afloat playing the same 1970's crap over and over, but I have taken no interest in any band that's formed after about 1998 except APTBS and listen my same ol' repeated...

Fidelity Sel Biotech just declared a dividend, buy more? - Jake88
I already own FBIOX and it's had a really nice run. Fidelity just declared a dividend of about $23/share. I'm automatically reinvesting that in the fund, but was wondering if now is a good time to buy more from cash in my money market in the 401k. The price per share dropped 8.66% because of the pay...

Who should take offense with Gruber's statements? - Jake88
Should it be the left who blindly believed all they were fed by the administration and were too burdened by "stupidity" to understand the shell game, or, the right who for quite some time recognized that whether the fees were labelled a tax and regardless of which end was taxed, it would result in i...

What are the limits on executive orders? - Jake88
Obama threatens and does use these to govern. He just said he will use executive orders to fix the immigration system this year. What are the limits on those orders? Are they time limited? I don't think so. Can Congress usurp them in some manner and slap him down? If an executive can govern like ...

Where to get drinks near the Dome? - Jake88
I usually arrive in my parking spot about a half hour before kickoff so I haven't wandered around the area in a few years. Where's a decent spot to get drinks before the game within a few blocks of the Dome? Thanks....

Best burger in B.R. for lunch on Saturday? - Jake88
I've been to Burgersmith and it was ok, nothing special. Would prefer something grilled over charcoal if possible and cheddar rather than American cheesefood. Will have a 11 year old with me who devours a good burger. I googled it on here and found nothing. Thanks. Eta: I haven't been to the n...

Why no Southampton thread? - Jake88
Are there no Southampton fans on this board? I realize their start might be a function of scheduling, but if they are rebuilding like others have informed me, doesn't that make for a bit of drama and intrigue?...

What did coaches see to make Jennings and Harris 1 and 2? - Jake88
I'll preface this with my not being a negatiger and my unwillingness to take a side if the JJ vs JL type debate pops up again. Jennings is our qb. I also don't listen to coaches' interviews because they say nothing. But, putting the usually valueless coach-speak aside, what did the coaches see in...

Question about soccer in the UK... - Jake88
How is it that a country as small as the UK has about 92 professional soccer teams (EPL and Football League), all of which, in theory, could make it to the EPL? Does almost every moderate sized city have a pro team? How do they afford to pay the bills drawing from such a small area? I looked up some...

Any undervalued sector mutual funds? - Jake88
I have an account with fidelity and have a few sector mutual funds like biotech and multimedia which have done well. With most sector based funds and S&P index funds seeming to be at or near all time highs, are there sectors that have lagged but are poised to make their move soon or are unjustly un...
