re: Shower Walls help - gumbo2176
Those one piece stalls are not all that thick and they will deflect between the studs if leaned on if no rock or cement board is used to firm it up. Oh, and while you have it stripped out, put up some structural framing to accommodate grab rails if you plan on staying in the house for a long time...

[quote]Damn. How long did it take to stuff 300 heads?[/quote] Not as long as it use to. Many years ago I'd stuff them with a small spoon and do it by hand. Then talking to an old Cajun lady and she told me to make my stuffing just a little wetter and use a pastry piping bag to stuff them. I...

Made a big pot of crawfish bisque - gumbo2176
Started it yesterday with the big pot of sauce and stuffed 300 heads using tail meat I saved from my last boil in the spring of 2019. I also used a couple quarts of crawfish stock and some shrimp stock out of the freezer to kick the flavors up a few notches. Final result is 3 1/2 gallons of...

[quote]Richards is not Louisiana owned, they are owned by out of state investment people. No thanks. [/quote] I didn't say it was La. owned and operated. I just threw it out as another option. When I make gumbo in large quantities I always use Savoie's Andouille or mild smoked sausage wi...

re: List a plain and ordinary thing to eat that is absolutely delicious - gumbo2176
I'm not going through several pages of responses but one of my favorites in the summer is a tomato pulled fresh from the garden sliced in thick slabs and put on toasted wheat bread slathered with mayo and a sprinkling of salt and pepper. A tomato sandwich is a summer treat for me....

re: Gumbo for 100 - gumbo2176
Kind of depends on if this is going to be the only dish or is it a pot luck where people bring things to the gathering. Naturally, if it is the only food being served, more will be needed. Again, it also depends on the crowd. Is it a mixed crowd of men, women and children or mainly men? If ...

re: Gas Dryer not getting hot - gumbo2176
If it's not getting hot, check out the igniter. Modern dryers have electronic igniters and they can go out. It is just a matter of getting the right igniter and installing it, which usually takes about 15 minutes once you find it. Check out u-tube videos on your particular model and you'll se...

re: Do you color the gray out of your beard or facial hair? Don’t lie, tell the truth - gumbo2176
Hell no. I look at it this way, I've earned every one of the gray hairs on my head, face and at my age, arse and nuts. Sure beats the alternative of watching them go down the drain until bald headed. And believe me, men who color their hair are not kidding anyone....

Well, that's 2 out of the original 6 members of Monty Python that have passed away. He had a fairly long life to live to 77 but the last few years had to be hell with him suffering from dementia to the point of even losing his ability to speak. Graham Chapman, the first of the cast to die was ...
