I want to start collecting something as a hobby. My desire is to collect something with value.

Im actually not here to get free advice. I have a legal question.
Can different docs prescribe drugs that other docs cant or in ways that other docs cant?
Can a palliative care md prescribe morphine in higher doses and still be safely within their scope legally? Or can a c...

We dont make our way down to Lafy very often so this is the first time we have been to Charley Gs. The atmosphere was great. The service was outstanding and the food was outstanding as well!

I bought some bone in ribeyes from kroger yesterday. My normal operation is to season with salt and pepper and then a dash of worchestire right before i pull them. That works great when the steak has good marbling.
The steaks i bought yesterday have almost no marbling but they were 3.99lb. I fig...

Gumbo is my (and most coonasses) favorite soup. There are enough gumbo recipes around here so Ill share my next favorite soup. Tasso and potato soup is great and super easy to make.

Im starting to get into this show on netflix. Im only four episodes in but i cant tell if im going to stay with the series. It is almost painful to watch ramsay be an a-hole but i guess that is part of the draw.
