    Just finished watching Megan Leavey. Based on the true story this one is a tear jerker. Growing up with a German Shepheard, i felt special attachment. Strongly recommend.

    Epicurean outlet store

    Exactly what I was going to say. We have an outlet mall here in Eagan, speaking of Minnesota, there is Le Creuset store there. I was there like 3 weeks ago. I did not find anything that was a great buy. Prices are on the par with regular store sale prices. Nothing special, no big deal at all.

    What's the last movie you watched?

    Beautiful description of Damsel. Have to say it is a perfect movie to watch at faster speed, thank you Netflix for this option, while programming on one screen, Damsel was playing on the second screen. Have to say say, it is fantasy, so don’t judge it too harsh. Any time dragons involved, it...

    Do You Have A “Secret Weapon?"

    Well, maybe that particular guy did not eat dog meat. I had Korean "friends", they were North Koreans, back in my soviet days in the university. There was a stray dog living in the court yard of the dormitory. One day Koreans were having a big party. But after that party, there was no more...

    Help me to make homemade subway-style bread?

    I think I've asked the same question years ago and somebody had good suggestion. Use the search here. P.S. I admit I never got around making the bread. My goal though was not the taste, but rather the consistency.

    To wash rice or not

    I think it depends on what the end result you are looking for. That is why there so many different kids of rice too.
