Re: Alcohol soaked fruit ?

Personally, If it's a clear liquid soak (ie grain or vodka), I usually do it in a canning jar and just let it soak until their used, especially maraschino cherries. That'll wake your ass up something fierce. If it's a non-clear (ie rum, brandy, etc), I usually do about 6-8 hours cool temperature. At...

Re: Just need to vent , hope you dont mind

Sadly my mother can be a lot like that at times. Nothing anyone points out to her or says or does ever even makes a dent in the way she is. She doesn't see the way she is and there's no changing it, regardless of how it's approached. It's infuriating, and disappointing, and there's absolutely nothin...

Re: A plea for some Phin power

If I had any doubt in the power of friends and Phin Power, all doubts have been washed away. I just got a call today regarding the job, and I got it. It's a permanent, non-contract, so it has all the benefits and stuff I need, and it should be a good position for me. Mom's back in rehab from Temple,...

Re: A plea for some Phin power

Haven't heard anything yet back. Weekends are the worst when all you do is sit around and wait.

Again, eternal thanks for your kind words and thoughts.

Re: A plea for some Phin power

I like to think it went well, but I won't know anything until next week. The waiting is always the most depressing part.

Thanks again for all the continued thoughts and support. I just keep trying to think there's got to be some sort of end to my bad luck.

Thanks Molly, and thanks everyone else. Times like these it seems like all I have left are friends, and that's something. It gives me a little comfort.

A plea for some Phin power

I don't post a lot these days, but I keep up on what's going on. I always hate to ask for help, but I really need to put a plea out for some kind thoughts and phin power for myself and my family. I've been hit with one shot of bad news after another for the last month, and I don't think I've ever ha...

Re: Comic Con

Being one who frequents the 'con' scene (comic con, wizard world, gencon, etc) and being a parrothead, you'd be surprised and how many people are actually just down to earth, 'normal' people there to let loose the way we all let loose at Buffett events. Obviously there are the extremes at both venue...

Re: Dog lovers - anybody deal with rescue or difficult animals

We've had our dog for almost 10 years and whatever happened in the early days before I rescued him caused him to be unduly aggressive toward other animals and people he's unfamiliar with, including family members he doesn't see all that often, so he'll go nuts and try to bite them when they come in ...

Well, unfortunately, I gave up on the laminated nametags. I had managed to get the glossy printing correct and someone here swiped the laminated sleeves for something else :( So my apologies for not being able to come through on that. As for our menu, we're sticking with the tried and true hot dogs ...
