  1. I prefer to eat my shrimp, but whatever works for you!
  2. There are few shows I dislike MORE than Undercover Boss. Mostly, those are the Bachelor or Love Island type shows, but I put UB at the Maury level of dreck.
  3. I'm about to go take a nap (or read and end up napping).
  4. Probably not. I like to think a little alcohol goes a LONG way, so "a few" is likely too many.
  5. YIKES! I almost forgot to do it today! Daily Quordle 207 7️⃣8️⃣ 6️⃣3️⃣ quordle.com ⬜⬜⬜⬜⬜ ⬜🟩🟨🟨🟩 ⬜🟨⬜🟨⬜ ⬜⬜⬜⬜⬜ ⬜🟨⬜⬜⬜ 🟨⬜🟨⬜⬜ 🟨🟨⬜🟨⬜ ⬜⬜⬜⬜⬜ 🟨⬜🟨🟨⬜ ⬜⬜⬜⬜⬜ 🟨⬜🟨⬜⬜ ⬜⬜⬜⬜⬜ 🟩🟩🟩🟩🟩 ⬜⬜⬜⬜⬜ ⬛⬛⬛⬛⬛ 🟩🟩🟩🟩🟩 ⬜⬜⬜⬜⬜ ⬜🟨🟩⬜⬜ ⬜🟨⬜⬜⬜ ⬜🟩🟨⬜⬜ ⬜🟨⬜⬜⬜ 🟩🟩🟩🟩🟩 ⬜⬜⬜🟨🟨 ⬛⬛⬛⬛⬛ ⬜🟨🟩🟨🟩 ⬛⬛⬛⬛⬛ 🟩🟩🟩🟩🟩 ⬛⬛⬛⬛⬛
  6. Turning healthy goodness on its ear!
  7. Yeah - no good compared to the one I used to go to in DC during lunch strolls. But is the Total Beverage not very good either? I tend to find stuff there, but actually go to the one in Sterling (by Costco) more often as that's where I might be shopping already.
  8. Dennis gets around!
  9. Yeah - what's up with that? Smell is something you can actually "verify", so not like "fashion" or even "hype" (like a new blue bike). Either you stink, or you don't. Same with clothes, the house, the car, etc..
  10. Yeah - I think sports gear - especially not immediately hung up to dry & air out or laid in the sun for some natural disinfecting is normal. With my bike shoes, I take the insoles out after every ride and let them dry. Otherwise, they would definitely stay damp and god knows what would grow. Pop them in the sun once in a while and they are reborn!
  11. I was thinking that our wood pile was always a home for bees. And not really bees, but yellow jackets!!!! Those effers were aggressive! And probably lousy pollinators.
  12. When we were kids, my dad drove us down from PA to Florida to go to Disney World. Anyway, that meant two days on the road - PA->SC->Orlando and then back later, and eating fast food along the way (a huge treat). Anyway, we all got milkshakes one time, and, of course, left the cups in the bins in the back of the station wagon, where they then proceeded to COOK in the sun when the car sat in the Disney hotel parking lot Wow - did that stink when we got to the car (a few days later as we were staying at the Disney Contemporary hotel). I blame my dad for not checking behind his three kids
  13. @Dirtyhip and hubby can use some of the "leftovers" from the home, yard, and van builds to create an insect hotel on their property! Maybe @Allen can swing one down on his land, too? In one of the more unusual efforts prompted by such findings, universities and conservation societies across Europe are working with local communities and schools to construct the habitats for bugs known as insect hotels. These structures actually function more like a housing complex. Bugs lay eggs inside different “apartments” and bring food, like pollen from nearby flowers, to provide for offspring. In colder months, insects will use the structure to hibernate.
  14. ...and clearly not everyone is like @ChrisL and his weird fishing. I had the TV on in the background as I made my lunch today, and a series of ads ran. One was an ad for smelly clothes (after washing!). Another was for Febreze or similar. I got to thinking, folks seem to worry a lot about stinking or having smelly things, but WHY is that? Is it some false worry or reality? I sort of figure I "understood" body odor by my mid-teens and started using anti-perspirant & deodorant. Never had a BO issue since (except camping for a week or more my sneakers will need to air our each evening). Same with clothes - we use a non-scented detergent, and never have an issue with my stuff smelling. I can often be on a ride and smell a person before getting anywhere near them - from awful BO or food-stink to overkill the other direction (ie too much fragrance in their detergent or not rinsed well). And homes that stink? Sure, with a cat you might need to find a good spot for kitty litter or might want to open the windows when cooking fish, but otherwise???? Just wondering.
  15. What sort of specs for this dream van? You're calling it a Sprinter - so is it an MB? I thought I heard you decided a Ram ProMaster? What sort of build - like a "van" or a passenger van? Going with a 3500 high roof 159" one? Is there a 4x4 option or you're keeping it "reasonable"? or with windows? Probably not, as they would interfere with the optimal inside layout? But no windows seems tough too, but maybe you can "add" them in the build? Or the Sprinter:
  16. You need to sort this out ASAP!!!!
  17. He ought to run for office! These are winning tactics quite often now!
  18. I think NHIE = "never have I ever"???? I bet she has done that branch stripping before. She is too modest to claim perfection, so that leaves B and D. Has she ever punched someone? Probably??? But has she stolen - especially as "spoils"???? Maybe. PirateSue????
  19. Okay, now I need to know...WHAT THE HECK ARE YOU BRINGING ON RIDES?!?!?!?!
  20. One thing to weigh is whether selling/trading your car NOW (for a premium) is also worth the CONSIDERABLE premium of buying a new car now - especially with lower inventory options, possible wait times (or settling), and a near 100% likelihood the extra $1,000 or $2,000 you GET for the used vehicle is going to be LESS than the very likely $5,000 MORE you pay for the new vehicle. IOW, the reason used cars are more "valuable" now is that new car are so much more expensive when paying MSRP+.
  21. Decisions folks bring upon themselves. The "need" to mow a lawn is a DIRECT result of wanting a lawn to mow
  22. Go kayaking. I like my little top tube bag. Not this one, but similar as the Diverge has a couple mounting points for the bag, so didn't need the version with the velcro stop on the bottom. Anyway, it is handy and with a saddle bag (or the Diverge's hidden SWAT compartment instead), I can carry too much stuff without needing a pannier. A rain jacket could easily be rolled tight and have a spot in a fork or under-down-tube bottle rack. I went to just the SWAT (tube, CO2, etc) and the "gas tank" and took off the saddle bag. For a longer unsupported event, the saddle bag could return for storage. Closer to mine:
  23. Power washing, like lawn mowing, can be very therapeutic as it is a clear "accomplishment" when completed.
