    I guess something is coming, weatherwise. The storm radio has been sounding about every 15 minutes for the last couple of hours.

    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    I love to cook and sometimes I'll use more dishes, utinsles, etc., than my wife will. The diffrence I just do NOT understand is how she can make such a MESS...?!?

    20+ years of Naval service taught me many, many things.... cleaning as I go is one. I'll spend half the morning and the whole afternoon in and out of the kitchen when I'm 'cooking', but when I'm done and it's just about supper time, the sink is empty.... with half the stuff already washed, dried, and put back where they belong. My wife.... you can hardly meanuever around in our kitchen when she's done.

    The biggest reason I take care of the dirty croockery as I go...... I just don't wanna clean up that much after I eat... I'm fat, dumb, and happy by then. I call it motivation by lazy.

    I hear ya, buuut... when my wife and daughters get to cooking together, they use a lot of pots, and the results are pretty amazingly good. However, I'm in goldshellback's camp: it's better to clean up as you go so there's not so much to do after the meal. Sometimes I help by doing clean-up while they are cooking, but I usually get pushed out because I'm in the way. I do most of my cooking in a single pot, but that's because of my limited cooking abilities and little incentive to improve.

    I grill.

    If it didn't walk, crawl, fly or swim, I'm not interested in it.

    Bachelor salad:

    Cut lettuce head in half
    pour on dressing
    eat over sink.

    No muss no fuss.

    There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.

    Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.

    Ahh, so that's why I make such a mess. I'm supposed to cut it in half first.

    Something interesting I came across today:


    Our quote of the day is from Hal Medlin, 65, of Smyrna, Georgia. He is a Vietnam veteran who is still upset about the war's rules of engagement.
    Many enemy strongholds were off limits and the American military had to fight with one hand tied behind its back. Hal says: "On this day in 1968, I was in Saigon when the Tet offensive began. Leaving the next morning the roads were strewn with dead Viet Cong. We would have won that war and had half fewer deaths but for liberal politicians and those who protested even though we had troops in harms way.
    "If you get into a war, and that should be very, very rare, you should fight with everything to win. The months after Tet changed America forever into a weak nation. Thank a Democrat."

    I was there...he is right. We all complained about how we were restricted by Washington on everything we did, even we aircrews were restricted.
