    Anybody Else use Firestick 4K to watch Television?

    We don't have a lot of bandwidth so streaming is iffy especially if we wanted more than 1 stream at a time.

    anybody watching the world cup what we call soccer but the rest of the world calls football

    I watched a little bit of the US v Iran game. My grandson plays high school soccer so I watch him but in general find it rather boring. What really gets me about it is extra time. I can't see any reason in this age, at the absolute highest level, they can't seem to be able to display the actual...

    My SIL came down with covid last week. She started having fainting spells, she passed out several times in a couple of days. Ended up in the ER on Wednesday and has been in the hospital since. She has been diagnosed with atrial flutter and her heart beat was 160+. They have managed to get it...

    What did you do today?

    I had shoulder surgery in 2010 for a torn labrum and bone spurs in the AC joint. I was in a sling 6 weeks before I could start PT. It was really painful. I think with RC surgery you start PT in a couple weeks. I have bone spurs in the other AC joint but it will have to get a lot worse before I...

    Are you considering bone broth different than stock? We make what we call stock often using bones along with vegetables and seasoning maybe. We freeze it often similar to what Shane does but do can it. We have a pressure canner because you need to processes meats products at higher temperatures...

    We typically make stock from the turkey carcass too but we are pretty stocked on stock right now too. A friend of mine's mom used to always make soup from the turkey carcass. They called it dinosaur soup because of how the bones looked.

    I have tried that a couple of times but really didn't notice a difference. I think the secret to moist turkey is not over cooking it. I feel brine helps too. I cook to 155-160F in the beast meat then let it rest for about an hour. I avoid in the bird stuffing. It hard to get it done to a safe...

    What did you do today?

    Yes the other thread was shut down. I'll take the blame. Note to self, keep trap shut. Oh Mom's birthday party went great, totally surprised her and she's not easy to fool. And my Dad was there and asked her out. What you say? They have been divorced for somewhere around 55 years. Go figure.

    What did you do today?

    I don't know what I did on that other post but here is what I wanted to say: Is the model you attached done in Sketch-it or what ever it is? Someone one here has put up some really nice work on that software. In have done a lot of 3D modeling with expensive software and that work is comparable...

    What did you do today?

    This really bums me out. I love turkey, roasted, fried, smoked, whatever. I love Thanksgiving, my favorite holiday I think. I love to make a big meal for friends and family, we've had 40+ before. Everyone brings side, lots of fellowship, it's the bomb! Sorry got carried away. Needless to say I'm...

    You're right, there's certainly no harm in thawing a little early it will be fine in the fridge.

    What did you do today?

    We have a 23# butterball frozen. I plan to put it in the fridge tomorrow. I'm going to brine it on Wednesday morning and I figure it well still be a bit frozen but that's fine. If I wasn't brining I would check it good on Wednesday morning and if it wasn't close I'd put it in cold water in the...

    Has there ever been a year in American history with zero murders? I highly doubt it.

    What did you do today?

    I have a neighbor who has had their Christmas tree up for about 3 or 4 years now. I asked her why once and she said it was too much work putting it away and getting it out so ahe decided to just leave it up. Whatever. Had an MRI on my back today so I hope they can figure something out. It is...

    What did you do today?

    There are 2 reasons to put up decorations early, weather and whether. If you hit a decent window in the weather it's nice to put up (or take down) decorations when it's not stupid cold or crappy out. The second reason is, as Ron indicated, whether your wife will be happy you did. Simple. We only...

    WHY do people buy blank?

    Wasn't too bad as I recall but that was at least 10 years ago so I bet that meal is at least $500 now. Place only had like 10 small tables.

    What did you do today?

    I'm a pan popper too. Just a little oil and the corn. No butter please but I like popcorn salt. I could never figure out why people buy microwave poppers or those air poppers. Hey isn't there thread for that!?

    WHY do people buy blank?

    I bought dinner for 4 at a tiny Italian place in Manhattan about 10 years ago. With a bottle of wine and a couple of beers it was $375 before the tip. I about crapped when they brought me the bill. It was all fresh pasta and was crazy good but come on it was still pasta, and certainly not all...
