I did choose my stone. I went to a massive warehouse in Perth Amboy and walked around for an hour. I agree that looking at slabs is the way to do it if you can and pick out the one you want. We picked a slab called "titanium" granite, with a leathered finish. We've had it installed going on thre...

I don't think Muslims are really comparable to the IRA. As others have pointed out the IRAs activities were mostly politically motivated. They weren't blowing things up and killing people so they could spread their religious ideology and they certainly weren't trying to convert Protestants to Cath...

A couple of suggestions: as others have said, pat the steak dry before you cook it, it will help you get a better sear. I'd also suggest salting earlier, as far as a day or two in advance. Finally, if you like rosemary, get some fresh rosemary, cook your steak in a cast iron skillet, and when you ...

Lockhart's behavior in that episode was a 180 from everything we've seen from him since he appeared, and totally out of character. No way that guy trusts that dude and opens the door to save some fricking CIA analyst. No way. That was fricking stupid. Having said all that, if the focus of the show...

I like the Langham in London and the Lutetia in Paris. If you use the subway in each city, these are both good locations. The Langham is a few blocks from the tube and great shopping, etc. The Lutecia is in the 6th arrondisment, near a metro station, and near the Bon Marche, which is an awesome p...
