Vacation Time..... Where to go.... MEXICO???
Posted: 2/27/2009 8:45:28 AM
The US State Dept. just issued a travel advisory for Mexico due to an increase in drug related murders and kidnappings. I'm sure many spots and resorts will be just fine but you may want do some research on that.

Roast Potatoes

Easy. Right at the end when they're done or almost done turn your oven to broil or put in the broiler, depending on your oven. You can open the oven door a gap to keep then from burning. That makes it easier to watch also because it won't take long.

I do this with a lot of things. It's a great way to brown the cheese on a frozen pizza as well reducing the dreaded soggy frozen pizza factor, lol

Perfect Popcorn!
Posted: 1/11/2009 12:19:02 PM
Great post NightElf !!! That's pretty much how I've always popped corn with the exception of the two burner thing. It's the way my dad cooked it. I learned it from watching him as a kid. I didn't know he was on to something, I just knew it beat all other popcorn hands down.

I do lightly butter mine. Dump 1/3 of the finished popcorn from the pan into a bowl, pour, actually more like sprinkle on some melted butter, a little salt and toss. Repeat with another 1/3 of the remaining popcorn, etc. This prevents some kernels from getting sogged with butter and other kernels getting none. The butter and salt is evenly distributed coating the outside of the kernels without soaking in, very important. This would work equally as well with the cheese powder, garlic powder or onion powder along with the salt.

I always make to much since it's usually just for myself and I've found that it keeps really well if you put it in a 1 gal. ziplock bag and put it in the fridge. Probably best if you pet it warm to room temp before you indulge. I suppose you could nuke it for a short time to warm it up but I've never tried that.

Do you care if I copy your " popcorn secrets " and post to another board I visit?

Jamaica
Posted: 11/7/2008 9:25:01 AM
Hi There,
Yeah I took a trip by myself to Ja a while back.. I've never been to Kingston but I wouldn't recommend going there unless you know a local who can guide you around. I went to Negril and that's where I'd go again.

You're booked for the 16th and don't have accommodations yet? Where are you flying in to? Kingston is on the opposite side of the island as Negril. Montego Bay is fairly close to Negril.

I can give you some good tips on Negril and a good message board, but on Kingston, not so much.

Who filed?
Posted: 10/25/2008 1:30:41 PM

My assertion that men should avoid marriage comes from experience with the terribly oppressive divorce and custody system that is currently in place.


So true wannashake. Marriage just isn't a good deal for men in this culture. I had to pay my x almost 200 grand. Not to mention I put her through nursing school. Her having an affair had no bearing on the settlement which is so out of whack it does not border on ridiculous, it IS ridiculous !!! Women know more about cleaning up in a divorce at 18 yo. than most men know until AFTER the divorce.

Who filed?
Posted: 10/23/2008 12:45:17 PM
I filed. She wouldn't end her affair, wanted her cake and be able to eat it too. On top of that she was/is crazy, suicide threats, abusive. She'd just disappear for a day or so every so often. I couldn't take any more. When I told her I filed she started tearing the house up, breaking glass etc. I gave her fair warning that I would file if she didn't straighten up and get professional help. After she moved out and the locks were changed, she broke in to the house, smashed a full length glass entry door and trashed the house, left the fridge and freezer standing open, turned on the water in the kitchen full blast, more broken glass. I still find glass shards now and then. The cops wouldn't do sh!t to her since her name was on the house and we weren't officially divorced. I'll bet big money if the role was reversed and a man broke into his estranged wifes house he'd be in jail !!!

Anyway, would you have filed???, LOL. I actually waited too long.

HOW to travel alone
Posted: 10/10/2008 1:49:28 PM
I went alone to Negril Jamaica by myself but I wasn't alone for long. It was fantastic! Tons of friendly people everywhere, both locals and fellow travelers. I met some colorful characters to hang out with.

You have to watch your back, like you do anywhere, and stay away from sketchy places or situations but no regrets.

girlfriend flashing at parties
Posted: 10/4/2008 10:48:15 AM
Yeah, my x wife used to be like that and yes, it's for attention from the men. It turns her in to a "target" for every horny guy within line of sight .... and then some, after talk gets around. With that said it's a matter of time before she goes further with someone showering her with attention. That's my experience and my opinion.

Any women willing to admit having had great sex with a married man?
Posted: 10/1/2008 1:02:35 PM
Most affairs begin as an "emotional affair", which they can justify in their minds. Then it escalates into a physical affair. I'm sure there are a few who set out to have a psysical affair but I'd think it would be the minority.

top 10 dive spots in the world...
Posted: 9/30/2008 8:14:01 AM
The British Virgin Islands (BVI) should get a mention here. See the wreck of the Rhone, one of the most famous wrecks to dive in the world I've heard. I snorkeled the shallow end, I'm not certified yet. Spotted Eagle Rays gliding by below, fantastic !!!

There is a plane wreck to dive off Beef Island, near the airport, lol. I saw an 8ft reef shark not far from there. It swam within 8 ft of me, whoah, that was crazy! Tons of other dive spots down there.

Our aging bodies
Posted: 2/12/2007 8:05:47 PM
Roxanne, David/SoTexMan and all,

A quote from Jimmy Buffett seems appropiate here, and yes he's in our age group.

"I'd rather die while I'm living than live while I'm dead.

Good thread, don't get too stressed, not good for your health.

D)

PS, another Buffett quote, "math sucks" hehe

" My ultimate goal is an LTR but no one says you can't have fun along the way and that's why I'm here".

*WHAT IS THIS SUPPOSE TO MEAN?.

Celebrity sightings
Posted: 2/10/2007 9:46:58 AM
Yep, I saw Big Head Todd in British Virgin Islands. I was at a floating bar, actually an old boat permantly anchored and turned into a bar. He was down there on a cruise organized for fans.

BTW, in case you don't know, It's Big Head Todd and the Monsters, a rock band.
Not sure what that says about his celibrity status though since I felt I needed to put this disclaimer here.

Okay, you be the judge.
Let me have it. One glaring transgression should really stick out,
.... maybe more than that???

Only the most thinning pics have been posted, they are all current however. Who's gonna post their favorite worst picture on a dating site?. I'm fatter than I look in the pics, but might add more "bad"
pics soon. lol

What have I left out? What leaves you wanting to know more about me after you read my profile? What makes you want to move on?

ALL comments welcome, get as rude as you want, you won't hurt my feelings and I just may learn something..... This should be interesting.....

;-)

cheating,way's you have caught your partners out
Posted: 2/6/2007 12:09:45 PM
I tricked her into admitting it.

Once I was 99.9% sure it was going on from other little things I noticed and found anyway. At this point I even knew the name of her "friend"

I told my wife that I recieved a blocked call from someone who said worked with her, and that they told that they didn't want me to be the last one to know that my wife was having an affair.

I mentioned the guys name and I said to my x, "what's going on?"

Badabing, busted......

Right after my x moved out I dated a girl, well, a woman, who was pretty well off. Her house was worth 3 million.

She was a nut case, I ran like my ass was on fire. I could have lived with her looks though, she wasn't beautiful but she was ok. After our second meeting and so many cell phone calls, messages, emails, texts........ I realized I could never get together for money alone.

Why do stunning women go for geeks
Posted: 11/26/2006 12:38:14 AM
wow, alot of replys for a simple question.

Women are attracted to confidence in a man. A confident self assured man won't even have to look for a woman, she will find him. That goes for the *geek* catagory or the *bad boy* catagory, which is a whole other thread.......
