Yes, it could, taxy! Besides, I make enough math errors when I'm completely sober.

The fat in the chuck has a lot of flavor, and that is what you want. Flavor! The typical ratio is 85/15 %. When you are going to be cooking for a rather crowd, unless you are extremely wealthy, you go with the cheaper cut.

Testing out a wifi router for mom. I had a spare or two that I wasn't using, so I'll save her a few dollars and set it up when I go down.

You're a good son, bc.

I'm wondering how I spent over an hour reading articles on "Serious Eats". That website is like potato chips - "bet you can't eat read just one!"

Well the solar eclipse that we had here in UK this morning was an anti climax....overcast sky - just went a bit darker for a while.

When I lived in Tacoma, at around nine or so in the morning, it went pitch black. Street lights went on, birds stopped singing, and car headlights went on. It became eerily quiet all of a sudden. Then some ingenious idiot thought of selling "dark" in a can. Yeah, he made some money. Not much.

But the school system took advantage of the eclipse to create a science project. Poo who was in the first grade came home and told me all about it. During that week, they made a mobile of the planets and how an eclipse happens. I had that hanging in his room for ages.

That is so thoughtful of you to do that for her.
She's really going to like the router.

I just love blood and gore. So I have been watching NY ER all day. Sitting here at the computer and watching TV. What a life. Last night I got The Pirate to watch Boston Med with me. They showed the appendix right after they had removed it from the body. He almost passed out. He did not appreciate my laughing at him.

Well the Wi-Fi router wasn't working properly and I remembered why I don't use it anymore! I ordered a new one for her, but I'll send it down without the box so that she doesn't know that I spent money on it she already thinks that I've done too much, she hasn't even seen the boxes of kitchen loot that I've bought for her
