How cold is it?

Speaking of hibernating: we had such a busy week that we really didn't have a chance to get over our lack of sleep Sunday night and any time differences. This morning, I slept until 11:10 am after turning off the light at 12:50 am! We were supposed to be doing Feast work, but our managing director had other ideas, and so, we had to cancel that 9:30 event. Darn! Then, I bailed on a conference that I should have been attending, if not for Feast stuff! I have to keep reminding myself that my health is still a bit compromised from my flu episode. I need to get rid of this lingering cough and Quebec is in less than two weeks.

Thanks. We saw that on the news. I think they are having a naming contest. I think he should be Enjay. The PB Enjay.

In other news, I am currently sitting in a 16' rental truck heading to NJ with all my possessions behind me and my fiance driving. My sister is driving my car, which also has my cat and future mother-in-law in it. Think it's about to be my turn to drive the truck again...

Journeys... Hope the drive goes well. And that the cat let your MIL have the front seat.

Need to upgrade my modem to get the most of what I am paying for on Internet speed. Need DOCSIS 3.0.

Looking at this one. Motorola Surfboard SB6141. I have been using an older model Motorola and it has been very reliable.

Any comments from the experts on the board?

I'd say go for it if you can find a good price. I've had good luck with Motorola modems.

On my second, DOCSIS 2, Motorola now. You really purchasing bandwidth that would require 3.0 to support, or is your ISP just nagging you?

The ISP (Comcast) is saying I need 3.0 to take advantage of the new speed I have. I was also leasing before, so I should purchase and drop the lease.

We were at a friend's house the other weekend, and they mentioned that they are going to do a little addition to their house. Part of it will include an outside kitchen. When our friends mentioned that they'll probably get a smoker, SWMBO got pretty excited about that possibility, which I took as permission to buy one. :D

Is this a good deal to those who have or want a smoker?
WHo knew Staples sold smokers?

Or, what would you suggest?

edit: Maybe this one?

Smokers with no charcoal fire? Granted I haven't tried it, but it seems something would be missing.

I'm thinking I'd get a propane model.

And she is now officially an East Coaster again. Yay!
But ugh, driving that truck was tiring. and I still get to do another 3+ hours of it tomorrow and then unpack all her stuff in my condo.

We were kind of wondering where all of her stuff would be going. Good luck with all of that!

I swear by my Weber Rocky Mountain Smoker Bullet. It runs on charcoal but is worth the extra effort! Once you get the temp stabilized, it will hold for 8-10 hours without need for adjustment

Also, there's a community forum based on it. So you can go there for tips, recipes and ideas.
