re: I'm closing on my first home in Louisiana in two weeks. Any tips y'all can offer? - hungryone on 11/15/19 at 2:21 pm
Make friends with the neighbors. Being on good terms with people up and down the block is better than any monitored security system. Make something simple, brownies or whatever, and invite em over for a housewarming porch sitting, etc....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: F&DB Christmas Wish List - hungryone on 11/15/19 at 2:18 pm
I just bought a set of 20 whole spices and spice blends, plus a cookbook, from spicetrekkers.com in Montreal. Gift for a young person who just got his first kitchen job. See it here: [link=(https://spicetrekkers.com/products/books/the-golden-rules-of-spices)]LINK[/link] What I wish someone wou...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: New Orleans on a Modest budget. - hungryone on 11/14/19 at 6:13 pm
The Hampton Inn on St Charles should come in around that pricing point, esp if they stay during the week and not on a weekend. They can ride the streetcar or Uber to downtown/French Quarter....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

[quote]The only chains I will go to are Five Guys, Chick fil a, Backyard Burger and Jimmy John's. I'm done with everything else. Anyone have similar ideas?[/quote] I'm generally anti-chain, but I'll admit to patronage of Popeyes, Starbucks if no local options exist, Shake Shack, Atomic Burger, and ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

[quote]Do they sell those to the public? would be a great snack with hummus.[/quote] In Guatemala, I've seen ladies selling the "trimmings" of communion wafers on the steps of churches.

re: New Construction Ceiling Height Dilemma - hungryone on 11/14/19 at 11:30 am
I've got 9' in kitchen, dining, hall, guest BRs.....but the main living area and MBR are both vaulted to 13'. So it's fairly energy efficient, but feels very open and spacious because of sight lines through the vaulted living area....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

Venice is a sad shell of a city these days....it will continue to hollow out and be a tourists' stage set unless people reject mass tourism. But e...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

re: What are the negatives of ceramic grills? - hungryone on 11/14/19 at 9:27 am
I've got BGE large and the mini; grill surface area is the only real drawback, to me. Of course, if you're used to the click & light ease of a gasser, you won't like the time required to light & bring a ceramic grill up to temp....figure 20 minutes if you're super competent, 30-45 if you still have...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Dublin and Madrid neighborhoods for AirBnB - hungryone on 11/14/19 at 9:22 am
Typed a reply & the board ate it. Trying again: Christchurch area, between it and St. Patrick's. Near enough to Temple Bar to stumble home, far enough so no one's barfing on your doorstep. Good access to the 747/757 airlink buses to the airport (6 euros one way if you buy in advance). ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: Fall tree oasis - hungryone on 11/13/19 at 9:24 am
River birches are short lived and messy as heck. Skip 'em, esp next to a patio. +1 on ginkos for fall color, but they're fairly slow growing and don't have a very dense canopy. Consider spring color, too: an asian (aka "purple") magnolia will give you a nice bloom in spring before your shade...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Bloating/gas on long flights - hungryone on 11/12/19 at 10:04 pm
—Don’t dehydrate.....get a refillable water bottle and fill that sucker up after you clear security. Drink water throughout your flight. This is key: flying is like walking through the desert....hydrate as though you’re trekking across the Mojave. Staying hydrated has the bonus effect of forcing...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
