It's over. The question to be answered: why was this guy even on the streets after being given a ONE HUNDRED AND EIGHT YEAR prison sentence?  >:(

Not a drink but I did smoke a bowl of Nederland hash with  "The official Guru of Ganja Ed Rosenthal"  during the Cannabis Cup in Amsterdam. ;D

You crock pot haters can go ahead and hate. I agree they are not ideal for everything - but for roast beef they work great. But, I'm willing to learn. What would be a better way to cook a roast beef? Or, would you simply cook something else?


Honestly...I love a nice Beef Roast sauteed in some bacon drippings first...yeah that's right I said bacon drippings. Then assemle the seared beef with some onions, mushrooms, carrots and potatoes...and don't forget the garlic...
some fresh herbs and some beef broth to simmer with...some salt and pepper...maybe some chili powder...I said maybe.

in a Crock Pot...low and slow for about 6 to 8 hrs.

Now that's good eatin'  8)

You know the old saying..."there's more than one way to skin a cat"  ;D

  Funny, just finished chowing on pot roast, onions, potatos, and carrots done in...a crock pot. Brown off a nicely marbled, seasoned chuck roast and in she goes with the veggies, a few cloves of garlic, a couple bay leaves, and some red wine or stock. A nice green salad to go with. Old fashioned, simple Sunday fare.
 Excellent way to go for meals after a long day being active in the cold outdoors when all you want to do is have a beer, relax, and eat. It's just one tool in the arsenal...

I wouldnt leave the United States

So much to offer here it could take all of a lifetime to do everything.

That being said the motorhome would have a trailer towing a small boat and I would hit all the inshore hotspots with fly-rod and spinning gear in hand  ;D

This, plus: birddog and shotgun, big game rifle, and sportbike.

Questions about the forum? / Re: Minor spelling tweak

Sorry to be "that guy" but Homebrew Competitions, as a subforum header, is misspelled.  Cheers!

Sorry, correcting spelling is a terribly bad habit, I realize that the obsessive correction of spelling says more negative about the correcter than the occasional misspelling says about the writer.  What can I say, it's an affliction I must learn to bear quietly.

Not to worry! Happens to the best of us, right Denny? ;D

What kinda birds you hunt maxieboy? Growing up, we had a Brittany Spaniel (Jody) that was an amazing pointer/retriever for quail and dove. My dad told me a story once that Jody caught a pheasant on the fly one hunt. I really want to get one, but I'm afraid no dog will live up to Jody and on top of that, I have no idea how to go about training one, let alone the time to do it. So I'm happy just hunting dove for now and retrieving them myself.

Ruffed grouse, the king of gamebirds!

Also, because of similar environs and the willingness to stay put while pointed, woodcock. Sadly, it's population is trending downward and presents a dilemma for the die hard wingshooter. They are easily detected by a good dog and hold so well when pointed, pulling the trigger is now a very tough choice.

And Mr. Gaudy himself:

Shirly Manson from the band Garbage.  I received back stage passes for one of their concerts and was able to hang out and chat with them after their show.  I had beers with the entire band but didn't talk to the dudes that much. ;D

Mmmm...Shirley Manson :-*. My brush with greatness: TimO!  :D

Not my dog in avatar but very representative of him. Have had rescue dogs earlier in life but the past two have been high falootin' bird dogs. ALL of my dogs live better than a lot of children in this country. I don't give a rip about most adults but when it comes to kids and animals, you won't find a more fierce defender. Anyone who would violate the innocence of either receives no mercy from me.
