Good morning everyone

I am heading out today to look for a new non stick wok!

We have had our other one for over 8 years now, it was a Wedding gift, so time for a new and improved one

Heh, I still have and use our non-stick electric wok that was a wedding gift 28 years ago! Along with the bamboo utensils! Ah, they just don't make 'em like they used to.

Granted, it'd be a lot of trouble. But, hey, fried snake and plenty of it. They caught one around 20 feet long. Python primavera, python alfredo, snakeballs and spaghetti....

And pac, I'd rather have nutrias if I got to choose.

From what I've been reading, there are thousands of these non-native escapees devouring the Everglades fauna, and they're very hard to catch, blending in with the surroundings. Lion fish are doing similar devastation underwater all around the Caribbean and Florida. By all means, eat them!

Ok, how's about some belts, boots, or shoes? Python makes nice leather!

I am watching the snow come down sideways. I can't see 100' out the window.
Good thing the roads are relatively empty, what with it being a holiday and all.

Addie, I hope you just love the new painting they're supposed to do today. Isn't it too cold to open the windows -- re the fumes?
And the painting still hasn't been done. I wont be here, so I don't care if the windows are open. It only takes about an hour to get the place heated back up when they are done. It is getting the wall warm again that takes time. I am at this point hoping for two things to happen. Management waits until the very last possible moment to accept a bid and that HUD shows up a week early. I won't do anything to hinder the process, but neither will I cooperate to manangement's advantage.
