That'd be alright. Maybe you'll play Creighton some year while she's there. They have an AMAZING soccer stadium right by the ballfield.

I put like 20 chicken quarters in mine for fourth of july. it holds a lot. If you want a smoker, i'd say that's a decent one to have. Way fancier than mine, but that window is useless, it's just gonna cloud over in a month.



I'll have to see what the lightning price is. The old lady already said no, but since when does that matter? I love my grill, but a smoker would be a nice addition to the options.

I'm fairly certain I've seen that cheaper on Amazon, but not by much. If you live in a cold weather area, maybe hold off til spring, it's not a screaming deal, just a nice one.

Not simple to get lightning price. But $229 vs. $279 for regular price. I think Bowtie showed me a deal about $189 or so late in the summer. So this is a nice price, but not one that you won't see again. I hope it goes down in the spring. My best hope for Christmas is that I will get approval for a smoker under the tree, not the actual smoker.

Sure. Want to leave the decision up to me or would you like to peruse their website and pick a couple yourself? They're like $13/bottle.

So, no knock on MI cider, but it seems like a lot of schlepping, considering that you have decent cider in your neck of the woods. Have you tried that Bellwether cider place in Trumansburg? I recall their stuff being pretty good, though I'm by no means a cider maven. Honestly, whenever I'm in the FL I find it hard to get my mind off Riesling. Mmmm...Riesling....

I have no opinion on Weight Watchers. What's worked for me is simply counting calories. With smartphones it's easy to pay attention and not cheat. Set your daily net calorie goal and make sure you stick to it.

you likely did not as you have never been that type. I was nagged, and nagged, and nagged. See, I'm a logical cat, things like, I'd like to finish my Masters and get a job before I get married made sense to me. They did NOT make sense to my wife. She kept talking about the specific diamond cut she wanted and it was not something I was going to be able to afford without gainful employment and a hefty discount (which I get, thank you Berkshire Hathaway). So when I finished the Masters, got the job and got some money saved up, I got the ring. Worked out, but was aggravating in the meantime.

Yeah, apparently the specs are old and from when the milk and dark used to be sold in separate packages (I don't recall this, but someone else said this). Each layer is 28 pieces of pure deliciousness. I got three boxes without hesitation.

I used MFP for awhile, but I didn't succeed with it. I'm not certain why. I hate WW because they weight so many of my favorite things very high with points (compared to straight calorie comparison) and it is so not worth the "free" fruits and veggies, but I like that it's flexible from day to day within one week as opposed to being the same every day. Maybe a combination of straight calories in/calories out combined with the weekly flexibility would work for me, I don't know.

Only two strategies have ever worked for me to lose weight so far: WW and fasting. WW is better than fasting.

I've been a model of restraint lately when it comes to wine - my buying binge was in 2010 and 2011, when I built up a two or three year supply which I am now in the process of drinking down. It'll take a while before I'm ready to go back into stocking up mode, though.

But I have no such inventory of caramels, cheese and salami. In fact, I never seem to keep much of an inventory of those salted caramels, for some odd reason.
