Re: Vertical Clouds

You are right about reheated cube stake. It's very tricky but can be done in the microwave using 1/2 power or less for an extended time. That warms it up instead of cooking it. If it was prepared correctly the day before, it will still be edible warmed up. Now that you mention the cross cutting of t...

Re: Servers, Multiple

It's not about accepting socialism or communism. It's about rejecting authoritarianism and losing long established rights. Think abortion. A lot of those Gen-Z folks were female.

Re: Micro Robots

But I understand, I miss the old days myself when family stuck together like glue, all except for that one uncle we all have. Thanks to my research on Ancestry.com, I discovered it's not a recluse uncle in my dad's family. It's some lady I do not recall ever being talked about. She never attended a...

Re: Micro Robots

There is indeed a lot of old school and tradition in the stories you write here. It's all pretty amazing stuff and highly contrasting to my own family's lifestyle. The grandparents were traditional and did things like they were done back in the old country. Their kids (my aunts and uncles) adapted t...

Re: Servers, Multiple

Midterms almost always result in flipping one or both chambers of congress. The Republican party was very confident going into the 2022 midterms that history would repeat with a landslide scale victory for them. Even the main stream media jumped on the band wagon and predicted the demise of the Demo...

Brisket isn't normally a highly prized cut of meat. I have seen it sold in Jewish delis and it's on some restaurant menus around here too. I never had the Kosher version but around O'Fallon I'm guessing they use brisket like pulled pork. It's is a very fibrous cut of meat and normally would not be t...

Re: Vertical Clouds

It's likely that I've seen drummies but did not know what they are. LOL You are right about the Buffalo wings being the entire wing in most places. I have had them without the tip somewhere in my dark past. Hot and spicey is not my favorite food so that I rarely eat such things in my old age. Once i...

Re: Servers, Multiple

I really don't see the Democrats having a chance in 2024 after all the damage Biden and the rest have done. I can't tell you hoe many times I heard and read that exact comment prior to the 2022 midterms. There is a reason why the forecast of a "Red Wave" never happened. Think about it. It...

Re: Micro Robots

A lot of what you and I have just commented on is due to cultural behaviors. There are societies in today's world where the older generation is revered and taken care of fully. I recall a neighbor back up in Illinois who lived in one of those million dollar mini castles just around the corner from m...

Re: Micro Robots

My hunting up genealogical facts has made me aware of how much the concept of "family" has changed over the decades. The memories I have of some of those folks is due to the fact that they all lived nearby and would gather together to celebrate a holiday or an event several times a year. N...

Re: Servers, Multiple

Apparently there are quite a few things, and people, you are not aware of regarding the Republican camp. That goes a long way to explain the opinions you express about Democrats. It's one thing to have a few aberrant members in a political party, but something entirely different when those radical r...

Re: Vertical Clouds

I have a suspicion that what you know as Drummies is called Buffalo Wings around here. That's what they were called around Chicago too. I can say that Drummies are tolerable, but there is very little edible meat and an abundance of bone and skin. Some restaurants realize how terrible that wing tip i...

Re: Vertical Clouds

You are right about the origins of ribs. The texture of the rib meat from sows is nothing like that from beef cattle. While back ribs rank high up there on our favorite foods list, I have a killer recipe for short ribs too. Around here short ribs are sold two ways, with and without the bone. The cla...

It's interesting that you would questionn Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez yet never say a word about Lauren Boebert or Marjorie Taylor Greene. Fine upstanding Republicans those two are. LOL

Re: Micro Robots

Your description is that of the quintessential family run floral business. I'm guessing that business model would still work in the year 2022 assuming you didn't do any government work. All that nepotism would probably make it illegal in that case. The business environment in and around O'Fallon isn...

Re: Micro Robots

So ... I guess that means your floral business never felt that it was being controlled by the government through price supports. Apparently they had bigger fish to fry.

Re: Servers, Multiple

Some of those so called Poly-TICK-ians got nailed recently for insider trading. After that there was an attempt to pass legislation forbidding Poly-TICK-ians from trading in equities while they are in office. The Republicans tanked that idea.

Re: Vertical Clouds

There is a phenomena in economics called supply and demand. Right now the demand for oil, gasoline in particular, is low and the inventories are high. That's the formula for lower prices at the retail level. The timing of the current price drop is suspect from my point of view. I could be wrong but ...

Re: Vertical Clouds

I hope y'all had a pleasant Thanksgiving Day. Since the days of the great pandemic we have grown accustomed to not going anywhere outside of O'Fallon to celebrate. That suits me fine. LOL We went over to Fresh Thyme (an organic food shop) to get some fruit and were surprised at the heat-and-eat vari...

Re: Servers, Multiple

Trading equities such as stocks and bonds is quintessential capitalism, the basis of our economic success. I see nothing contrary to our traditions with politicians owning stocks, unless, of course, they take advantage of insider trading. That's a no no. But then, that's a no no for every citizen of...
