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?

*Shootz cow*
I can now.
Do you know how to butcher a cow.

More importantly, do you know where the good steak comes from?

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.

....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
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..

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?

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"
that's medical terminology for "bitch".

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.

That was actually only the second time I've shot a (real) gun.
And you call yourself American!!!

Even Rebecca has shot at least two guns. Though on the same occasion.

I'm sure you have seen the pix.

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.
I love venison and bison, Antelope is good too.
As is elk, I've tried moose but didn't really like it.

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!
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?

I figured as much. Is this true Art? Do your people really cook rice in cheesecloth?
If by 'your people' you mean Americans, no.


No, I meant his people. Japanese, not the other half of his people, Americans.
Those people aren't my people.
hehe but I do get a reaction from you when I assume this. <--- goal achieved
