| Food and Drink|| Proper recipe for Singapore Sling? - Jake88 on 4/22/15 at 7:56 pm|
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 ...View Topic - Replies (3)

| Food and Drink|| Pork shoulder smell? - Jake88 on 12/31/14 at 8:18 pm|
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...View Topic - Replies (3)

| Food and Drink|| Need pointers on smoking a duck - Jake88 on 12/13/14 at 8:43 pm|
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...View Topic - Replies (1)

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...

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...

| Political Talk|| What are the limits on executive orders? - Jake88 on 11/5/14 at 2:25 pm|
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 ...View Topic - Replies (6)

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...View Topic - Replies (15)

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...

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...
