Home made fettuccini alfredo. With roasted tomato and garlic sourdough bread. A dozen oysters. A roast duck leg. Finish it off with a slice of key lime pie. Then also maybe some brie and sault port cheeses with a baguette and sliced apples. I would have to be able to make it myself though or it woul...

Personally I like my job, working 60 hours a week is no sweat when you love what you do and hey if it lands me a couple hundred extra square feet in my next house or a new X-box even better. I have absolutely no desire to live in some stone-age Khamer Rouge Maoist fantasy. Producing stuff is fun, it...
I too fell in love with Viet-coffee. I could never figure out why. One day I asked the nice lady at the pho shop to get me some of her coffee and one of those little metal strainers.

I think you are underestimating humans ability to mass produce plastic crap.

We will h...

There's a reason they call it puppy love. You see him/her the first time and they are everything you wanted. Sweet, cute, ready to follow you around and enjoy life forever. Then you get home and the damn thing need to be fed, destroys your furniture, bites your family and craps on the carpet. Only d...

'lo there folks. I've been lurking for almost a year and decided to finally register and say hi! I spend most of my time toiling away in hot cramped kitchens or playing with power tools in the garage. Otherwise I can be found frisbee golfing or out enjoying the wilderness in Michigan the few weeks o...
