In reply to:
SIMSBURY - Police are investigating a most unusal bomb scare - a bomb stuffed in a roaster.

A motorist on Powder Forest Drive Friday morning noticed what looked like a whole chicken - the kind bought at grocery stores for roasting - with a pipe bomb stuffed inside, police said.

When they arrived on the scene around 9 a.m. officers found the roaster had an improvised explosive device where the fowl's innards should have been.

They closed the road for part of the morning as the Hartford Police Department's bomb squad was called to detonate the device, police said.



In its recent history, Simsbury and local residents have had their problems with hungry black bears, roaming coyotes and escapee emus. Now town folks can add store-bought chicken, stuffed with a bomb, to the list of odd animal incidents.

With the chicken and bomb taken care of, police are left to investigate who's responsible for the strange incident.

Police Capt. Matthew Catania would not describe the bomb, but said it was "capable of causing harm to a person."

He said the police didn't know if the bomb was made by one or more people, but the department is investigating. Anyone with information is asked to call Det. Sgt. Fred Sifodaskalakis at 860-658-3140

A pipe bomb in a chicken...
And yes. I have an Alibi.
Exciting!!!!

That sounds like the best thing since the emu ran down main street.
Some dude got a citation for killing a black bear the other day, since it was out of season.
Was it hungry and rummaging through his garbage?

Here we thought you were actually longing by a real pool when you were all laid up. Like some sort of rich kid.
Not quite... There were many afternoons of my broken ass floating in the pool with a six pack. But it is an above ground pool.

Yeah, I'm picking up on that.

All that time wasted being jealous of you.Crazy

Guess I'll just have to be happy with being jealous of L'Habitant's rich kids pool.
When I was a kid, living in a middle class neighbourhood, there were only 2 families with pools. I remember having to be really nice to those kids to get an invite into their pool. So, I decided that when I had kids, as soon as the bank would give me money, they were getting a pool. I didn't want them to have to grovel like I did just to keep cool.
Middle class?

Nobody had a pool in my neighborhood, except for the rich people on the other end of the block. I don't think there was another pool for miles.

When I was a kid we could A.sit in the kiddy pool or B. Run through the sprinkler. A sprinkler attached to a hose, not the in ground type found in so many middle class yards.


My cousins in WI had a pool. It was one of those trash above ground models though. Even then my two aunts went in together to get it so it was pretty much owned by two families.

We didn't have central air either until I moved to my dad's, in the rich neighborhood. And then he would hardly run it. I just had to sit in our hot house and look at the neighbors pool.

Yes, I'm bitter.

Yes, that's my story too.... sprinkler attached to the hose... oh, and one Christmas I got a Slip 'n' Slide.... essentially a long-ass piece of plastic you covered in detergent and ran water down it to slide on. Awesome!!! Who needs a pool when you can get grass stains on your chin?!?!

....yes.... we have Christmas in summer!

Negative, 3001. And Negative, not a legitimate milestone. If it was, and he actually got it, I would have Francized him by now.

Where did you pick up that cooking tip?

Um... I lived in Japan for 6 years. You pick up on things, when using fresh ingredients. Unlike Uncle Ben's rice, real rice requires preparation.

Ugh.
Never seen it.
I did see a video of two teenagers who were watching it for the first time and had no idea what it was. It was really funny seeing their reactions.
They didn't know what two lesbos shitting in a cup and eating it was the first time they watched it?
The weren't expecting it, I guess.

No. close by. The crag is on our property. No one knows about it. I'm a lucky little bastard.

We shot in a different spot.

Yeah, talk about ironic. 96 degrees outside and the route was wet.Crazy It gets a lot of shade, but I thought it would have dried out since the rain last week. We still had a fun time, though.
Where are the pics?

And it sounds like it might get some ice in the winter.

Didn't get any.
I actually got some good ones of a crag in Maryland. My friend rapped in from above and shot some, Just Like The Magazines.Laugh

Maybe i will post some of those.

Yeah... it's been 100F ever since I got back from holiday. I'll be glad to be moving to West Texas for at least one thing.... drier air.
Not the hot sweaty sex?


The other day our thermometer said it was 35C. Which in a lot of places isn't that hot, but this is Canada eh! Not to mention early June.

I guess quite few years back I remember reroofing my Dad's house in MN in early June and it got passed 100F a couple times that week.

92 right now.
I'm going to attempt to climb something this afternoon if my friend calls me back. Maybe solo TR, but I wanted to get another "FA."

Maybe pix will be taken? Dad is going to come along with his buddy to shoot the new 30/30.

Wow, I sound like a redneck
Shooting a 30/30 at the crag?

That's pretty redneck.

Mixing guns and climbing is baaad! M'kay?! Crazy

I'm actually quite good at climbing hungover. However, I remembered that I have a post-festivities brunch and some other shit to do.
ahh, to be young
Hey, if I can treat patients while still drunk at the wrong hospital, I can certainly climb hungover.

heh pwned.
Sorry doc, that was funny.
Who got pwned? me, or the patients?

The psycho bitch decided she did not want to be in the hospital anymore. The hospital staff decided that she was staying. And I didn't exactly have time to bust out the camera phone.

I never knew that the hospital could decline a persons right to decline health care. Wouldn't that, in a sense, be hurting a person by doing so?

Unless a person is STATE admitted, that person is allowed to leave under their own free will.


At least this has been the impression that I have always had about health care.

A police officer can hospitalize someone for 24 hours. An MD can do it for 72 hrs, and then they have to go to an oversight commitee

I'd really like to expand on this topic, but I just spent the last 2 hours talking health care in class and don't feel like doing it on my own time - let alone time I paid for.

Seems a bit ludicrous to me, regardless.

Here we thought you were actually longing by a real pool when you were all laid up. Like some sort of rich kid.
Not quite... There were many afternoons of my broken ass floating in the pool with a six pack. But it is an above ground pool.

Yeah, I'm picking up on that.

All that time wasted being jealous of you.Crazy

Guess I'll just have to be happy with being jealous of L'Habitant's rich kids pool.
When I was a kid, living in a middle class neighbourhood, there were only 2 families with pools. I remember having to be really nice to those kids to get an invite into their pool. So, I decided that when I had kids, as soon as the bank would give me money, they were getting a pool. I didn't want them to have to grovel like I did just to keep cool.
Middle class?

Nobody had a pool in my neighborhood, except for the rich people on the other end of the block. I don't think there was another pool for miles.

When I was a kid we could A.sit in the kiddy pool or B. Run through the sprinkler. A sprinkler attached to a hose, not the in ground type found in so many middle class yards.


My cousins in WI had a pool. It was one of those trash above ground models though. Even then my two aunts went in together to get it so it was pretty much owned by two families.

We didn't have central air either until I moved to my dad's, in the rich neighborhood. And then he would hardly run it. I just had to sit in our hot house and look at the neighbors pool.

Yes, I'm bitter.

Yes, that's my story too.... sprinkler attached to the hose... oh, and one Christmas I got a Slip 'n' Slide.... essentially a long-ass piece of plastic you covered in detergent and ran water down it to slide on. Awesome!!! Who needs a pool when you can get grass stains on your chin?!?!

....yes.... we have Christmas in summer!
Thats so weird. I guess you never asked for skis or snowboards for xmas then eh

We shot in a different spot.

Yeah, talk about ironic. 96 degrees outside and the route was wet.Crazy It gets a lot of shade, but I thought it would have dried out since the rain last week. We still had a fun time, though.
Where are the pics?

And it sounds like it might get some ice in the winter.

Didn't get any.
I actually got some good ones of a crag in Maryland. My friend rapped in from above and shot some, Just Like The Magazines.Laugh

Maybe i will post some of those.

This town is a few miles away from me.
In reply to:
SIMSBURY - Police are investigating a most unusal bomb scare - a bomb stuffed in a roaster.

A motorist on Powder Forest Drive Friday morning noticed what looked like a whole chicken - the kind bought at grocery stores for roasting - with a pipe bomb stuffed inside, police said.

When they arrived on the scene around 9 a.m. officers found the roaster had an improvised explosive device where the fowl's innards should have been.

They closed the road for part of the morning as the Hartford Police Department's bomb squad was called to detonate the device, police said.



In its recent history, Simsbury and local residents have had their problems with hungry black bears, roaming coyotes and escapee emus. Now town folks can add store-bought chicken, stuffed with a bomb, to the list of odd animal incidents.

With the chicken and bomb taken care of, police are left to investigate who's responsible for the strange incident.

Police Capt. Matthew Catania would not describe the bomb, but said it was "capable of causing harm to a person."

He said the police didn't know if the bomb was made by one or more people, but the department is investigating. Anyone with information is asked to call Det. Sgt. Fred Sifodaskalakis at 860-658-3140

A pipe bomb in a chicken...
And yes. I have an Alibi.
Thats funny...and has your name all over it.
"what looked like a whole chicken - the kind bought at grocery stores for roasting -"


I just love the writers style.

WMD, are you taking notes?
*yes*
I bet once the bomb was detonated it was in pieces- like the kind bought in stores for frying.

Um... I lived in Japan for 6 years. You pick up on things, when using fresh ingredients. Unlike Uncle Ben's rice, real rice requires preparation.


So real rice doesn't come in a 10kilo bag with Asian writing on it?

I have always just threw it in a pot and cooked it.

In Japan it came in many forms. My favorite was the bulk vending machine type. Bring a 3 gallon bucket insert 500 yen (US$4.75) and it fills.

[culinary geek moment]

To prepare white long or short grain rice, the best method is to rinse the crap out of it until the water is no longer a milky color. Using either a colander or placing the rice in a large pot you rinse, rinse, rinse, rinse, and rinse. When that milky color is gone, you want to soak the rice under about a nuckle of water for 12 hours.

I steam my rice on a bamboo steamer and the cheesecloth comes in handy throughout the entire process. First, it keeps the rice contained and managable while rinsing; I've mastered rinsing in a colander. Then you let it soak for about 12 hours in a bowl; again the cheesecloth keeps everything together. And finally, when steaming the rice, the cheesecloth keeps everything together and from falling through the slats in the steamer. My rice comes out super sticky and fluffy. By pre-soaking the rice, also, the cooking time is down to about 5 minutes.

Cooking it this way requires some planning and preperation but the quality is much better, and you can get rice cheaper when it's uncooked. For flavor, rice takes on the flavor of whatever you put in it. It's the ultimate starch.

[/culinary geekery]

Cooking is a passionate hobby of mine, can you tell? I like eating good food, and if I can get supurb taste cheaply I'll do it.

I dunno. My parents could only afford that cheap black plastic you use for painting projects. We only used a hose and more often than not the plastic - being black - was super hot regardless of how much water we put on it. It was good until about the 5th or 6th slide when it would tear and we'd have a rock go through our chest - living in the desert isn't really conducive for lawns. We had one, but it was thin and brown most of the time.

My pool involved a 1/4 mile walk to a pond. This pond had multiple vehicles - cars, jeeps, motorcycles, 4-wheelers, and a school bus - in it. I didn't swim much there. No one in my subdivision of 250 houses had a pool. If you could call it a pool, it was more than likely a horse trough, or one of those 10" deep plastic thingys.

I'd rather just cook it for 20 min or whatever it takes than have to plan 12 hours in advance.

I might try rinsing it though. Ours always wants to come out overly sticky.

I thought rinsing it took away any nutritional value it had?

Cooking is not a very passionate thing of mine. After 12 hours of soaking in my belly I can turn a rice into a big pile of brown poo in less than a minute. I just can't get passionate about something like that.

I'd much rather stick to being passionate about conquering meaningless rocks.Crazy

We had a lake pretty close to our house. It kind sucked for swimming though. It wasn't very deep. And full of weeds. It was pretty good for fishing though. And leeches.

I never knew that the hospital could decline a persons right to decline health care. Wouldn't that, in a sense, be hurting a person by doing so?

Unless a person is STATE admitted, that person is allowed to leave under their own free will.


At least this has been the impression that I have always had about health care.
A police officer can hospitalize someone for 24 hours. An MD can do it for 72 hrs, and then they have to go to an oversight commitee
I'd really like to expand on this topic, but I just spent the last 2 hours talking health care in class and don't feel like doing it on my own time - let alone time I paid for.

Seems a bit ludicrous to me, regardless.
Yeah I disagree with 98% of the us healthcare system. The 2% is the amount related to patient care.... And it's all about the paycheck.
So you think Canada is better?


You are such an idealist.

spent my fair share of time in those as a kid. It was my job to make sure they were always full, so I made sure to enjoy my work from time to time.

'course, there was always the pool I'd make myself when I dammed up the creek flowing through the front 40. No diving allowed, and that water was COLD!

I thought you guys were boys?!?!?! When I was a boy I tried a lot of things, including putting detergent on my plastic slide.... and if results were favorable, like in this case, I kept doing it until my mother decided the lawn was clean enough... it was definitely a pre-emptive strike on the grass stains though.... and the biggest bonus of all.... BUBBLES!!! Lots of them!! You guys missed out!

Yeah, we also had a nearby dam with leaches.... we'd just go there, take the leaches out, just by immersing a leg or two and bring them back for the slip'n'slide... bring all the action home, so to speak.

Well fuck....

Here we thought you were actually longing by a real pool when you were all laid up. Like some sort of rich kid.
Not quite... There were many afternoons of my broken ass floating in the pool with a six pack. But it is an above ground pool.

Yeah, I'm picking up on that.

All that time wasted being jealous of you.Crazy

Guess I'll just have to be happy with being jealous of L'Habitant's rich kids pool.
When I was a kid, living in a middle class neighbourhood, there were only 2 families with pools. I remember having to be really nice to those kids to get an invite into their pool. So, I decided that when I had kids, as soon as the bank would give me money, they were getting a pool. I didn't want them to have to grovel like I did just to keep cool.

We have a pool.
We aren't rich.
You can all come swimming.
Party at Wanders house. Can you grill us some steaks too?
I think your house would be closer for most.
for most? Only for you and Beccs.

Where did you pick up that cooking tip?

Um... I lived in Japan for 6 years. You pick up on things, when using fresh ingredients. Unlike Uncle Ben's rice, real rice requires preparation.


So real rice doesn't come in a 10kilo bag with Asian writing on it?

I have always just threw it in a pot and cooked it.

In Japan it came in many forms. My favorite was the bulk vending machine type. Bring a 3 gallon bucket insert 500 yen (US$4.75) and it fills.

[culinary geek moment]

To prepare white long or short grain rice, the best method is to rinse the crap out of it until the water is no longer a milky color. Using either a colander or placing the rice in a large pot you rinse, rinse, rinse, rinse, and rinse. When that milky color is gone, you want to soak the rice under about a nuckle of water for 12 hours.

I steam my rice on a bamboo steamer and the cheesecloth comes in handy throughout the entire process. First, it keeps the rice contained and managable while rinsing; I've mastered rinsing in a colander. Then you let it soak for about 12 hours in a bowl; again the cheesecloth keeps everything together. And finally, when steaming the rice, the cheesecloth keeps everything together and from falling through the slats in the steamer. My rice comes out super sticky and fluffy. By pre-soaking the rice, also, the cooking time is down to about 5 minutes.

Cooking it this way requires some planning and preperation but the quality is much better, and you can get rice cheaper when it's uncooked. For flavor, rice takes on the flavor of whatever you put in it. It's the ultimate starch.

[/culinary geekery]

Cooking is a passionate hobby of mine, can you tell? I like eating good food, and if I can get supurb taste cheaply I'll do it.

Interesting. My sister married a japanese and she makes sushi and cooks rice in a rice cooker. It always comes out good. They have rice like we have potatoes. ALL the time. I will have to tell her your way and have her try it.

And epok, you will make someone a good wife someday!

I dunno. My parents could only afford that cheap black plastic you use for painting projects. We only used a hose and more often than not the plastic - being black - was super hot regardless of how much water we put on it. It was good until about the 5th or 6th slide when it would tear and we'd have a rock go through our chest - living in the desert isn't really conducive for lawns. We had one, but it was thin and brown most of the time.

My pool involved a 1/4 mile walk to a pond. This pond had multiple vehicles - cars, jeeps, motorcycles, 4-wheelers, and a school bus - in it. I didn't swim much there. No one in my subdivision of 250 houses had a pool. If you could call it a pool, it was more than likely a horse trough, or one of those 10" deep plastic thingys.
Where the hell was this place you called home? Sounds like somewhere in Mexico to me

spent my fair share of time in those as a kid. It was my job to make sure they were always full, so I made sure to enjoy my work from time to time.

'course, there was always the pool I'd make myself when I dammed up the creek flowing through the front 40. No diving allowed, and that water was COLD!

When there was water to be had it was nice. The best pond around, though, was a 2 mile bike ride. It was fed by a wonderful cool spring. The water was clean enough that a few goldfish that were released into the pond lived for years. That place I miss. The other one, not so much.

I had a rice cooker too. That was left behind when I was divorced. I learned how to steam my rice on the wok and haven't gone back. Hell, I've learned to cook anything on the wok. My next venture with it is baking - which can be done.

I also cook some good Mexican, French, and German dishes. Living in Asia, though, has given me the upper hand on making things the authentic way.

Just water worked pretty good. Perhaps it was the only way your mother could get you to bathe?
Snap!!!
Laugh

I mean really....


Who else put detergent on their slip and slide?

I dunno. My parents could only afford that cheap black plastic you use for painting projects. We only used a hose and more often than not the plastic - being black - was super hot regardless of how much water we put on it. It was good until about the 5th or 6th slide when it would tear and we'd have a rock go through our chest - living in the desert isn't really conducive for lawns. We had one, but it was thin and brown most of the time.

My pool involved a 1/4 mile walk to a pond. This pond had multiple vehicles - cars, jeeps, motorcycles, 4-wheelers, and a school bus - in it. I didn't swim much there. No one in my subdivision of 250 houses had a pool. If you could call it a pool, it was more than likely a horse trough, or one of those 10" deep plastic thingys.
spent my fair share of time in those as a kid. It was my job to make sure they were always full, so I made sure to enjoy my work from time to time.

'course, there was always the pool I'd make myself when I dammed up the creek flowing through the front 40. No diving allowed, and that water was COLD!

When there was water to be had it was nice. The best pond around, though, was a 2 mile bike ride. It was fed by a wonderful cool spring. The water was clean enough that a few goldfish that were released into the pond lived for years. That place I miss. The other one, not so much.
Well, i DID grow up in the Pacific Northwest, where many of those born there develop webbed feet in the early years of their life. Luckily I was born in Kansas i guess, but an even larger stroke of luck was not having to grow up there. This was impressed upon us chillins during our early teen years, during the family vacation one summer in the mid-80's. TFG!

Um... I lived in Japan for 6 years. You pick up on things, when using fresh ingredients. Unlike Uncle Ben's rice, real rice requires preparation.


So real rice doesn't come in a 10kilo bag with Asian writing on it?

I have always just threw it in a pot and cooked it.

In Japan it came in many forms. My favorite was the bulk vending machine type. Bring a 3 gallon bucket insert 500 yen (US$4.75) and it fills.

[culinary geek moment]

To prepare white long or short grain rice, the best method is to rinse the crap out of it until the water is no longer a milky color. Using either a colander or placing the rice in a large pot you rinse, rinse, rinse, rinse, and rinse. When that milky color is gone, you want to soak the rice under about a nuckle of water for 12 hours.

I steam my rice on a bamboo steamer and the cheesecloth comes in handy throughout the entire process. First, it keeps the rice contained and managable while rinsing; I've mastered rinsing in a colander. Then you let it soak for about 12 hours in a bowl; again the cheesecloth keeps everything together. And finally, when steaming the rice, the cheesecloth keeps everything together and from falling through the slats in the steamer. My rice comes out super sticky and fluffy. By pre-soaking the rice, also, the cooking time is down to about 5 minutes.

Cooking it this way requires some planning and preperation but the quality is much better, and you can get rice cheaper when it's uncooked. For flavor, rice takes on the flavor of whatever you put in it. It's the ultimate starch.

[/culinary geekery]

Cooking is a passionate hobby of mine, can you tell? I like eating good food, and if I can get supurb taste cheaply I'll do it.

Interesting. My sister married a japanese and she makes sushi and cooks rice in a rice cooker. It always comes out good. They have rice like we have potatoes. ALL the time. I will have to tell her your way and have her try it.

And epok, you will make someone a good wife someday!

I had a rice cooker too. That was left behind when I was divorced. I learned how to steam my rice on the wok and haven't gone back. Hell, I've learned to cook anything on the wok. My next venture with it is baking - which can be done.

I also cook some good Mexican, French, and German dishes. Living in Asia, though, has given me the upper hand on making things the authentic way.
ah, see, the rice cooker was one of the things that came with ME in my divorce. I do rinse the grains extensively before cooking though, which consists of turning the dial to "50" and forgetting about it till it dings. I usually throw the chicken breast and veggies in right on top, it all cooks together, quite nicely too if you ask me. :)

When I was a kid, living in a middle class neighbourhood, there were only 2 families with pools. I remember having to be really nice to those kids to get an invite into their pool.

BUBBLES!!! Lots of them!! You guys missed out!

Most boys who grow to be men just aren't that into bubbles.

Thank you for not telling us about the other things you tried with your boy friends. I'm happy you turned your life around. Not that there would be anything wrong with it if you hadn't.

We shot in a different spot.

Yeah, talk about ironic. 96 degrees outside and the route was wet.Crazy It gets a lot of shade, but I thought it would have dried out since the rain last week. We still had a fun time, though.
Where are the pics?

And it sounds like it might get some ice in the winter.

Didn't get any.
I actually got some good ones of a crag in Maryland. My friend rapped in from above and shot some, Just Like The Magazines.Laugh

Maybe i will post some of those.
Didn't getany pics, ice ,or both?

Both. I am going to get some pix soon, though. I don't have any of that area.

I thought it would get ice since it does have a tendancy to be damp, but it doesn't.

Oh, and I've tried the Domestic Engineer thing. It didn't work out so well. I like that my current GF isn't looking to ever get married again - she had a reallly bad experience - and I think that we are mutually in agreance about long-term comittments.
obviously what I said wasn't important

What did you say, cause your statement is confusing.
How is it confusing? I cheesetited the post. What I did say was something about your relationshiop works then, but you can still cook for her. or something like that...

I actually got some good ones of a crag in Maryland. My friend rapped in from above and shot some, Just Like The Magazines.Laugh

Maybe i will post some of those.
Didn't getany pics, ice ,or both?

Both. I am going to get some pix soon, though. I don't have any of that area.

I thought it would get ice since it does have a tendancy to be damp, but it doesn't.
Perhaps it does on certain years?

Could you run a hose?

The psycho bitch decided she did not want to be in the hospital anymore. The hospital staff decided that she was staying. And I didn't exactly have time to bust out the camera phone.
I wonder if I got called a psycho bitch when I was in the hospital. Er.....I wasn't what you'd call an idea patiant those first couple of weeks.
It's possible, but I don't think you were a bitch to them. Just out of it. The nurse in ER just said you were "combative"

heh.

....yes.... we have Christmas in summer!
Detergent?

Like dish soap?



Just water worked pretty good. Perhaps it was the only way your mother could get you to bathe?
Snap!!!

I mean really....


Who else put detergent on their slip and slide?

I dunno. My parents could only afford that cheap black plastic you use for painting projects. We only used a hose and more often than not the plastic - being black - was super hot regardless of how much water we put on it. It was good until about the 5th or 6th slide when it would tear and we'd have a rock go through our chest - living in the desert isn't really conducive for lawns. We had one, but it was thin and brown most of the time.

My pool involved a 1/4 mile walk to a pond. This pond had multiple vehicles - cars, jeeps, motorcycles, 4-wheelers, and a school bus - in it. I didn't swim much there. No one in my subdivision of 250 houses had a pool. If you could call it a pool, it was more than likely a horse trough, or one of those 10" deep plastic thingys.
spent my fair share of time in those as a kid. It was my job to make sure they were always full, so I made sure to enjoy my work from time to time.

'course, there was always the pool I'd make myself when I dammed up the creek flowing through the front 40. No diving allowed, and that water was COLD!

When there was water to be had it was nice. The best pond around, though, was a 2 mile bike ride. It was fed by a wonderful cool spring. The water was clean enough that a few goldfish that were released into the pond lived for years. That place I miss. The other one, not so much.

Where I grew up the community was built around 3 lakes (small lakes, but whatever), with more not too far off.

When I was a kid we would walk across the street and through the neighbours yard to one lake. Or I'd quick walk up to my friend's, and she live across the street from another lake. When I got a little older they actually built a little park and beach across from her place.

Then when I was 12 my parents move to a new house that was actually on the lake, across the water from that little beach.

Then I moved to Ontario where the lakes are polluted. I miss swimming. Unsure

Well, i DID grow up in the Pacific Northwest, where many of those born there develop webbed feet in the early years of their life. Luckily I was born in Kansas i guess, but an even larger stroke of luck was not having to grow up there. This was impressed upon us chillins during our early teen years, during the family vacation one summer in the mid-80's. TFG!

Damn, Kansas huh?

That would have made it hard to get into climbing.

That has nothing to do with how fresh it is. That is how it is raised. Unless you are talking preservatives. I don't know if they can do that with raw meat.

She is a pretty bad patient. It gets worse when they give her morphine. I think that was when she was combative. She also likes to pull out tubes.

I know nothing about meat processing. I just know the ones in the grocery store are not all natural. They even put something on ground beef so it doesn't go brown while sitting there.

I've never butchered a cow. I do know where the good meat on a deer is though.

That cow is going to be rotten by the time we get there. You'll need to gut it, skin it, and hang it someplace cold so it can start aging. Then it should be okay.

Camden isn't bad...but Acadia is the Maine (get it?) place for climbing in Maine. I've never been there!

My statement wasn't entirely accurate, as when it comes to climbing, NH and Maine are the same state in my mind, since I do all my climbing in NH.

The crag near my house is pretty good granite, though. Granite is great.

Shooting a 30/30 at the crag?

That's pretty redneck.

No. close by. The crag is on our property. No one knows about it. I'm a lucky little bastard.

We shot in a different spot.

Yeah, talk about ironic. 96 degrees outside and the route was wet.Crazy It gets a lot of shade, but I thought it would have dried out since the rain last week. We still had a fun time, though.
Where are the pics?

And it sounds like it might get some ice in the winter.

Didn't get any.
I actually got some good ones of a crag in Maryland. My friend rapped in from above and shot some, Just Like The Magazines.Laugh

Maybe i will post some of those.
Didn't getany pics, ice ,or both?

Both. I am going to get some pix soon, though. I don't have any of that area.

I thought it would get ice since it does have a tendancy to be damp, but it doesn't.
Perhaps it does on certain years?

Could you run a hose?

My friend did that in college. I haven't been home the last few winters to try it. Maybe this year?
If you are still traveling you should just travel your way to the Rockies instead.

I'm home for Xmas, at which point I will take stock of t3h finances.

If I can still travel, my sis and I might go overseas. Or I might go back to Ecuador.
Or I might get a job.

It all depends.

What happened?
The psycho bitch decided she did not want to be in the hospital anymore. The hospital staff decided that she was staying. And I didn't exactly have time to bust out the camera phone.
I wonder if I got called a psycho bitch when I was in the hospital. Er.....I wasn't what you'd call an idea patiant those first couple of weeks.
It's possible, but I don't think you were a bitch to them. Just out of it. The nurse in ER just said you were "combative"

heh.
storytime!
She is a pretty bad patient. It gets worse when they give her morphine. I think that was when she was combative. She also likes to pull out tubes.

Hey, both you and my mother warned them.....don't give her morphine.

Fortunally I remember nothing about my time in ICU.

That has nothing to do with how fresh it is. That is how it is raised. Unless you are talking preservatives. I don't know if they can do that with raw meat.
I know nothing about meat processing. I just know the ones in the grocery store are not all natural. They even put something on ground beef so it doesn't go brown while sitting there.
I could go back to being a vegetarian so easily
Okay, yeah they do put something on hamburger. I think its more of a coloring thing than a preservative though.

Most meat you buy at the store is full of hormones and other crap though. There is a certain amount of drugs that need to be given to livestock to keep them healthy. I'm not sure if the necessity is less on smaller farms.

Our friend Neil has suggested a few of us getting together and buying a cow from his parents. His roommate is a butcher and could do the cutting. I would assume three of us would buy it and then then it would get split into four groups and the butchering would be payment.

My mom used to always get beef from my grandparents.

I had a bb gun. That was a good time.
I wouldn't mind getting into target/clay shooting. But I'm not a hunter.
You don't need to be a hunter to hunt. Just like you don't need to be a climber to climb. Deer meat is awesome. And really cheap if you can hunt near where you live and process it yourself.

You do go do target practice while out climbing.

Yes, above ground.
I do target practice after climbing far away from the crag no one knows about. I pick up teh shell casings and teh targetz 2.

That was actually only the second time I've shot a (real) gun.
the REAL trick to redneck target practice is to reelz durnk firsts, then ridez down the bak roadz whilst hagingz out teh pasnegerz winderz, shoots road sines from weavingz car. Or the flatbed of teh truk, depenz.

Teh chaleng is 2 not fallz out cuz yer driverz drunkn weaving BETwen linz.

Just water worked pretty good. Perhaps it was the only way your mother could get you to bathe?

I mean really....


Who else put detergent on their slip and slide?

I dunno. My parents could only afford that cheap black plastic you use for painting projects. We only used a hose and more often than not the plastic - being black - was super hot regardless of how much water we put on it. It was good until about the 5th or 6th slide when it would tear and we'd have a rock go through our chest - living in the desert isn't really conducive for lawns. We had one, but it was thin and brown most of the time.

My pool involved a 1/4 mile walk to a pond. This pond had multiple vehicles - cars, jeeps, motorcycles, 4-wheelers, and a school bus - in it. I didn't swim much there. No one in my subdivision of 250 houses had a pool. If you could call it a pool, it was more than likely a horse trough, or one of those 10" deep plastic thingys.
spent my fair share of time in those as a kid. It was my job to make sure they were always full, so I made sure to enjoy my work from time to time.

'course, there was always the pool I'd make myself when I dammed up the creek flowing through the front 40. No diving allowed, and that water was COLD!

When there was water to be had it was nice. The best pond around, though, was a 2 mile bike ride. It was fed by a wonderful cool spring. The water was clean enough that a few goldfish that were released into the pond lived for years. That place I miss. The other one, not so much.
Well, i DID grow up in the Pacific Northwest, where many of those born there develop webbed feet in the early years of their life. Luckily I was born in Kansas i guess, but an even larger stroke of luck was not having to grow up there. This was impressed upon us chillins during our early teen years, during the family vacation one summer in the mid-80's. TFG!

Damn, Kansas huh?

That would have made it hard to get into climbing.
i dintz get into climbing till the end of my first "career".

Have you seen Kansas? ATV's and shootz gunz, thats about all there is to do there. Oh, an maybez some fishin' from time to time, after the livestock are fed and milked and fed again.

SOOOO lucky i dint grow up on that milk-farm.

My mom used to always get beef from my grandparents.
Growing up on a horse ranch, my dad would purchase a young steer in the spring. I'd get have to feed it all summer long, till late in the fall the butcher-man would drive up in his mobile meat machine, put a .22 Mag between it's eyes and do the work right there. He'd hoist the quarters into the truck, cart it off to his cutting shop, and voila`! three weeks later we'd pick up a freezer full of beef all wrapped in waxed paper.

There are a certain amount of antibiotics which are prudent to give to the young steer, much like we all get childhood vaccinations because it's the thing that helps keep us healthy. However, after the initial dose the only thing we would feed it was good hay and as much mineral from the salt-lick as he had a mind to taste.

There's something to be said for raising your own beef, yes.

And FWIW, I have cheesecloth in my house. It comes in great for cooking rice.

Where did you pick up that cooking tip?

Um... I lived in Japan for 6 years. You pick up on things, when using fresh ingredients. Unlike Uncle Ben's rice, real rice requires preparation.
I figured as much. Is this true Art? Do your people really cook rice in cheesecloth?
I dunno, my people grew tomatoes, onions, peas, cow corn, beans and for a while (until the sugar factory closed down) sugar beets.
But then again I'm fourth generation Jap American so my people have been here a while.

When there was water to be had it was nice. The best pond around, though, was a 2 mile bike ride. It was fed by a wonderful cool spring. The water was clean enough that a few goldfish that were released into the pond lived for years. That place I miss. The other one, not so much.

Where I grew up the community was built around 3 lakes (small lakes, but whatever), with more not too far off.

When I was a kid we would walk across the street and through the neighbours yard to one lake. Or I'd quick walk up to my friend's, and she live across the street from another lake. When I got a little older they actually built a little park and beach across from her place.

Then when I was 12 my parents move to a new house that was actually on the lake, across the water from that little beach.

Then I moved to Ontario where the lakes are polluted. I miss swimming. Unsure
Yeah....

Well, I have a story:

    A pastor entered his donkey in a race and it won.

    The pastor was so pleased with the donkey that he
    entered it in the race again, and it won again. The
    local newspaper read:

    PASTOR'S ASS OUT FRONT.

    The Bishop was so upset with this kind of publicity
    that he ordered the pastor not to enter the donkey in
    another race.

    The next day, the local newspaper headline read:

    BISHOP SCRATCHES PASTOR'S ASS.

    This was too much for the Bishop, so he ordered the
    pastor to get rid of the donkey. The pastor decided to
    give it to a nun in a nearby convent. The local paper,
    hearing of the news, posted the following headline the
    next day:

    NUN HAS BEST ASS IN TOWN.

    The Bishop fainted. He informed the nun that she would
    have to get rid of the donkey, so she sold it to a
    farmer for $10. The next day the paper read:

    NUN SELLS ASS FOR $10.

    This was too much for the Bishop, so he ordered the
    nun to buy back the donkey and lead it to the plains
    where it could run wild. The next day the headlines
    read:

    NUN ANNOUNCES...HER ASS IS WILD AND FREE.
I'm on the express train..

Here we thought you were actually longing by a real pool when you were all laid up. Like some sort of rich kid.
Not quite... There were many afternoons of my broken ass floating in the pool with a six pack. But it is an above ground pool.

Yeah, I'm picking up on that.

All that time wasted being jealous of you.Crazy

Guess I'll just have to be happy with being jealous of L'Habitant's rich kids pool.
When I was a kid, living in a middle class neighbourhood, there were only 2 families with pools. I remember having to be really nice to those kids to get an invite into their pool. So, I decided that when I had kids, as soon as the bank would give me money, they were getting a pool. I didn't want them to have to grovel like I did just to keep cool.

We have a pool.
We aren't rich.
You can all come swimming.
Party at Wanders house. Can you grill us some steaks too?
I think your house would be closer for most.
for most? Only for you and Beccs.
He is way up in Maine, or wherever.

You place is definitely closer for Art.

Not by much.
We have better rawk.
This is correct.

Steep granite.

Good granite two. None of the decomposing shit that you find elsewhere. This granite is damn good granite. It's not High Sierra or Yosemite granite, but real close to that.

Hmm... do I hear the forethinking of a road trip?

So real rice doesn't come in a 10kilo bag with Asian writing on it?

I have always just threw it in a pot and cooked it.

In Japan it came in many forms. My favorite was the bulk vending machine type. Bring a 3 gallon bucket insert 500 yen (US$4.75) and it fills.

[culinary geek moment]

To prepare white long or short grain rice, the best method is to rinse the crap out of it until the water is no longer a milky color. Using either a colander or placing the rice in a large pot you rinse, rinse, rinse, rinse, and rinse. When that milky color is gone, you want to soak the rice under about a nuckle of water for 12 hours.

I steam my rice on a bamboo steamer and the cheesecloth comes in handy throughout the entire process. First, it keeps the rice contained and managable while rinsing; I've mastered rinsing in a colander. Then you let it soak for about 12 hours in a bowl; again the cheesecloth keeps everything together. And finally, when steaming the rice, the cheesecloth keeps everything together and from falling through the slats in the steamer. My rice comes out super sticky and fluffy. By pre-soaking the rice, also, the cooking time is down to about 5 minutes.

Cooking it this way requires some planning and preperation but the quality is much better, and you can get rice cheaper when it's uncooked. For flavor, rice takes on the flavor of whatever you put in it. It's the ultimate starch.

[/culinary geekery]

Cooking is a passionate hobby of mine, can you tell? I like eating good food, and if I can get supurb taste cheaply I'll do it.
*looks up*
I'm not reading that.
Seriously couldn't you just buy a rice cooker at an asian market?

Just water worked pretty good. Perhaps it was the only way your mother could get you to bathe?

I mean really....

I dunno. My parents could only afford that cheap black plastic you use for painting projects. We only used a hose and more often than not the plastic - being black - was super hot regardless of how much water we put on it. It was good until about the 5th or 6th slide when it would tear and we'd have a rock go through our chest - living in the desert isn't really conducive for lawns. We had one, but it was thin and brown most of the time.

My pool involved a 1/4 mile walk to a pond. This pond had multiple vehicles - cars, jeeps, motorcycles, 4-wheelers, and a school bus - in it. I didn't swim much there. No one in my subdivision of 250 houses had a pool. If you could call it a pool, it was more than likely a horse trough, or one of those 10" deep plastic thingys.
I started swimming competively at the age of nine.
Swimming pools have never seemed fun to me.

Camden isn't bad...but Acadia is the Maine (get it?) place for climbing in Maine. I've never been there!

My statement wasn't entirely accurate, as when it comes to climbing, NH and Maine are the same state in my mind, since I do all my climbing in NH.

The crag near my house is pretty good granite, though. Granite is great.

That was a horrible pun.

I'm too cheap for that. It would cut into my climbing fundz... the way I do it now works just fine. But I don't eat rice all that often, so when I do, doing it that way is a treat.

It's possible, but I don't think you were a bitch to them. Just out of it. The nurse in ER just said you were "combative"

Epoch is more Japanese than Art. He has at least lived there. Art is American.
I visited once for about 3 months.

Although I am not even full blooded japanese, my grandmother had red hair and green eyes but full asian feaures other than that.

I have Hazel eyes, usually they are light brown but can appear green in the correct light. Both my sisters have the normal dark brown almost black asian colored eyes.

You don't need to be a hunter to hunt. Just like you don't need to be a climber to climb. Deer meat is awesome. And really cheap if you can hunt near where you live and process it yourself.
I love venison and bison, Antelope is good too.
As is elk, I've tried moose but didn't really like it.

I heard that Art's people can order take out faster than you can say perspicacious.

C'mon, he's a single LA surfer/climber duhd who's only real culinary skill is having Domino's on speed dial.
Yore rong!
I'm a single OC climber/surfer dhude who can cook a mean batch of chili and knows how to grill a good steak.

Chili = Open kan & heat.

Steakz = open tv dinner & microwave.

We know the truth Art.
Oh please, I'm a hick from colorado.
I make my chili from scratch and grill my steak medium rare.
I will confess to cooking my potatoes in the microwave though.

....yes.... we have Christmas in summer!
Detergent?

Like dish soap?



Just water worked pretty good. Perhaps it was the only way your mother could get you to bathe?
Snap!!!
Laugh

I mean really....


Who else put detergent on their slip and slide?

I dunno. My parents could only afford that cheap black plastic you use for painting projects. We only used a hose and more often than not the plastic - being black - was super hot regardless of how much water we put on it. It was good until about the 5th or 6th slide when it would tear and we'd have a rock go through our chest - living in the desert isn't really conducive for lawns. We had one, but it was thin and brown most of the time.

My pool involved a 1/4 mile walk to a pond. This pond had multiple vehicles - cars, jeeps, motorcycles, 4-wheelers, and a school bus - in it. I didn't swim much there. No one in my subdivision of 250 houses had a pool. If you could call it a pool, it was more than likely a horse trough, or one of those 10" deep plastic thingys.
I started swimming competively at the age of nine.
Swimming pools have never seemed fun to me.
Oh, you were one of those kids who had to get up and to the pool by 6 before school to train?
Yes I had to get up by 5am, I had chores to do first.
Than training in the morning and after school also.
AAU swimming works you pretty hard.

Epoch is more Japanese than Art. He has at least lived there. Art is American.

3 months in japan when I was 15, 2 weeks in thailand every year for the past 3-4 years.
Yup, you win!

I don't really know if that is winning. But I will claim that I am really cultured because of it. I need to get my debts paid off so that I can go back to Thailand. I can't even afford to fly out west to see my family for at least the next 9 months. This economy shit is insane.

It's possible, but I don't think you were a bitch to them. Just out of it. The nurse in ER just said you were "combative"

heh.
storytime!
She is a pretty bad patient. It gets worse when they give her morphine. I think that was when she was combative. She also likes to pull out tubes.

We don't like it when people try to pull out tubes, mostly because it can be bad for the orifice that the tube is shoved in.

You don't need to be a hunter to hunt. Just like you don't need to be a climber to climb. Deer meat is awesome. And really cheap if you can hunt near where you live and process it yourself.
I love venison and bison, Antelope is good too.
As is elk, I've tried moose but didn't really like it.
Elk. MMMmmmm. Not so likey the venison tho, a little gamey for my taste.

Well, I have a story:

    A pastor entered his donkey in a race and it won.

    The pastor was so pleased with the donkey that he
    entered it in the race again, and it won again. The
    local newspaper read:

    PASTOR'S ASS OUT FRONT.

    The Bishop was so upset with this kind of publicity
    that he ordered the pastor not to enter the donkey in
    another race.

    The next day, the local newspaper headline read:

    BISHOP SCRATCHES PASTOR'S ASS.

    This was too much for the Bishop, so he ordered the
    pastor to get rid of the donkey. The pastor decided to
    give it to a nun in a nearby convent. The local paper,
    hearing of the news, posted the following headline the
    next day:

    NUN HAS BEST ASS IN TOWN.

    The Bishop fainted. He informed the nun that she would
    have to get rid of the donkey, so she sold it to a
    farmer for $10. The next day the paper read:

    NUN SELLS ASS FOR $10.

    This was too much for the Bishop, so he ordered the
    nun to buy back the donkey and lead it to the plains
    where it could run wild. The next day the headlines
    read:

    NUN ANNOUNCES...HER ASS IS WILD AND FREE.
I'm on the express train..
Not bad, but pastors don't have anything to do with bishops. It should be a priest instead.

Where did you pick up that cooking tip?

Um... I lived in Japan for 6 years. You pick up on things, when using fresh ingredients. Unlike Uncle Ben's rice, real rice requires preparation.


So real rice doesn't come in a 10kilo bag with Asian writing on it?

I have always just threw it in a pot and cooked it.

In Japan it came in many forms. My favorite was the bulk vending machine type. Bring a 3 gallon bucket insert 500 yen (US$4.75) and it fills.

[culinary geek moment]

To prepare white long or short grain rice, the best method is to rinse the crap out of it until the water is no longer a milky color. Using either a colander or placing the rice in a large pot you rinse, rinse, rinse, rinse, and rinse. When that milky color is gone, you want to soak the rice under about a nuckle of water for 12 hours.

I steam my rice on a bamboo steamer and the cheesecloth comes in handy throughout the entire process. First, it keeps the rice contained and managable while rinsing; I've mastered rinsing in a colander. Then you let it soak for about 12 hours in a bowl; again the cheesecloth keeps everything together. And finally, when steaming the rice, the cheesecloth keeps everything together and from falling through the slats in the steamer. My rice comes out super sticky and fluffy. By pre-soaking the rice, also, the cooking time is down to about 5 minutes.

Cooking it this way requires some planning and preperation but the quality is much better, and you can get rice cheaper when it's uncooked. For flavor, rice takes on the flavor of whatever you put in it. It's the ultimate starch.

[/culinary geekery]

Cooking is a passionate hobby of mine, can you tell? I like eating good food, and if I can get supurb taste cheaply I'll do it.
*looks up*
I'm not reading that.
Seriously couldn't you just buy a rice cooker at an asian market?

I'm too cheap for that. It would cut into my climbing fundz... the way I do it now works just fine. But I don't eat rice all that often, so when I do, doing it that way is a treat.
If you ate rice more you would have more climbing funds. Kinda a catch 22, don't you think?

What exactly is that suposed to be? Is there a throat somewhere to intubate? Looks like a chicken not a pig
Pig trachea, with a handly little hole cut in there to shove my tube.


Did you fail and thus the reason for the words FAIL on this little gem?
Nah I did fine. It's the pig that isn't doing too hot.

I make my chili from scratch and grill my steak medium rare.
I will confess to cooking my potatoes in the microwave though.
I have been taking a liking to doing mine rare to blue lately. Not that we have steak very often.

MR was my choice for a long time.

What happened?
The psycho bitch decided she did not want to be in the hospital anymore. The hospital staff decided that she was staying. And I didn't exactly have time to bust out the camera phone.
I wonder if I got called a psycho bitch when I was in the hospital. Er.....I wasn't what you'd call an idea patiant those first couple of weeks.
yes, but you had several other things going on, i.e. a broken hip.
No broken hip. Femur and pelvis though. Plus ribs and skull. and a bunch of other stuff.

It's possible, but I don't think you were a bitch to them. Just out of it. The nurse in ER just said you were "combative"

heh.
storytime!
She is a pretty bad patient. It gets worse when they give her morphine. I think that was when she was combative. She also likes to pull out tubes.

We don't like it when people try to pull out tubes, mostly because it can be bad for the orifice that the tube is shoved in.
What about your pee hole?
