Captain Hate

Condolences to TC; I truly hate the Celtics but developed a degree of respect for their core on how they gutted up to try to compensate for having a one-armed Rondo. Usually Big Baby's game is money, give or take an occasional boneheaded play, but his shot went strangely in the toilet in this series, further making the task difficult.

Ainge deserves to be skewered for the Perkins trade as giving up their best chance for this season with their aging core; although now they have Jeff Green moving forward. I assume that this will be the last season for seeing Shaq waddle down the court a half dozen times every tenth game.

If it helps, Sara, I could strike up a conversation with DoT and MarkO that has nothing to do with b-ball.

LOL. Well I know it would be more interesting than stupid basketball. I'm an avid sports fan except for basketball, which I can not stand. But, since MarkO asked politely, I'll discourage you. ::grin::

JimmyK, My D-i-l told me about that this morning It looks more beautiful than any tandoor oven I've seen . Online there are people who have created them out of oil drums, vermiculate, fire bricks and terra cotta pots. Those are more like the ones from India than Levy's gorgeous version is.

BUT

You don't really need it. You can make delicious nan for example in a cast iron pan. And I do.

You can get a good oven stone, heat it on your grill at a high temp and bake the bread on that with the same effect. (In both cases, be sure to smear it with ghee before serving.

Rick,
I never read that France had relented on the Libyan refugees. If anyone finds that, please post it.

Oh, all right MarkO. Sorry Sara. :-)

Having just spent a week in San Fran and driving back home thru the San Joaquin valley I was pleased to see an article that reflected very much of what I was thinking during the drive.

Thoughts on a Surreal Depression by Victor Davis Hanson

The portions regarding a “cash” economy really rings true.

Frau Langeweile

clarice, we had a green egg around 1970. In fact we bought a second when the first died. Back then, the things sold for $30, and we thought everything we cooked tasted like ham which was not always what we wanted. Be sure to taste food prepared on it before you buy. I realize they may be different these days.

clarice

Sara, Hoe delicious that Common tale ending is.

You can bet MO and BO nearly came to blows over that one.


**BTW of all the homemade tandoors, this one looke pretty good and can't cost more than $50.

Don't play it. I see no reason to vote for anyone other than my first choice

Yeah,I didn't phrase my position correctly there. I don't play that game.

I will vote for my first choice in the primaries.

Oh wait. In 2008 my first choice was out before I got to vote.

I lament that voters at large play that game -- and that the game is rigged so that by the time I get to vote the field is so often narrowed down to my fifth and sixth vote.

How do I,we,everyone change that?

Sara (Pal2Pal)

Inhofe went to CIA to view the 12 bin Laden death photos and he says the ones taken on site are really gruesome, but the 3 he saw taken on the ship aren't so gruesome after the body was washed and the blood cleaned away from his face and head and he (Inhofe) thinks they could/should be released to the public. He also said there is no doubt the man is dead. The bullet went through bin Laden's eye and out the back and made quite a mess, including being able to see brain matter spattered about. Yuck!

Danube of Thought

"The mandate is a tax. Judge Hudson and MarkO upthread agree."

No. Both Hudson and Vinson went into great detail explaining why it is not a tax, in demolishing the government's argument that it is. It may be that they could do this thing over and get the same screwball scheme in place using the taxing power, but for political reasons they elected not to do so. And they won't get a chance at a do-over for some time to come.

I think I'll vote for the candidate whose slogan is -

Thanks for the tip, frau. I don't know anyone who has one. You're right it is more expensive now, but every one of their sites is full of praise from happy users.

I have a regular grill for just barbecuing. What I want is something that I can bake at consistent high temperatures in. Do you suppose it was the charcoal that imparted the flavor you disliked? With something called the plate holder, I think the charcoal smokiness is blocked and what you get is a high heat convection cooker.

Memphis is like an ACC all star team.

Needless to say, there's a lot of Terp love when Greivis Vasquez is in the game. Actually he gives the Grizz a nice change of pace since starter Mike Conley is almost always looking for his shot and GV is more into playmaking.

This series is one of the most exciting matchups of 2 young teams I've seen in a second round for a long time.

My Uncle built one on his winery, years ago. The winery also had an olive farm. As he sold land to developers he kept the olive wood. That was the best wood, IMO, for a wood burning oven.

Hell,I hardly remember my 2008 primary vote. I'm pretty sure I went in figuring I'd go all Operation Chaos and vote for Hillary,but when the nice poll worker asked me which party I wanted to vote for,I couldn't bring myself to say Democrat.

IIRC,it was down to Huck and McCain at that point -- and I wrote in Mr. Jimmy,the school bus driver who picks up kids in our neighborhood.

He's ex-army and an ex-cop. Took the bus driving job because his grandson was starting elementary school.

I so wish he would have won in 2008. I haven't asked him if he's running in 2012. I think he should.

Clarice,

Here's the "kiss and make up" piece on the Berlusconi/Sarkozy immigration spat. I may have misinterpreted it to mean that France was backing off on tossing back North Africans but a search of archives doesn't reveal any more stories in the Italian press about the French sending them back.

Ignatz

--I think I'll vote for the candidate whose slogan is -
"We shoulda been drillin' Yesterday!"--

Bill Clinton, having served two terms, is no longer eligible.

Frau Langeweile

Back on topic (???), I feel any conservative governor presently in office needs to stay where he/she is to help complete the cleanup job on the state level. For example, if you remove Christie, NJ will revert to progdom before he closes the door to his office. The same with Daniels. Let Walker see what he can accomplish in WI. We need to hold the state governments firmly since there is no hope for Congress to reshape the country.

I hear you talking, clarice:
That leaves someone experienced like Romney who certainly will have learned from his mistakes. Combine with an Allen West--gorgeous family!!--and there is a dynamic duo. Let Sarah Palin be a national voice to speak out continuously for the rest of us.

(Dick Morris can have dibs on Huckabee.)

Clarice, what temperature can the Egg be heated to? If pizzas are a high-priority incentive for you, you'll need 750 degrees, or close to that, won't you?

When I ate grains, back in the (good old)day(s), I made pizzas often in my regular oven. But even keeping it at a 500-degree pre-heat for an hour, and using a preheated stone, I could never get that ultra-thin crispy, slightly blackened crust that's such a critical part of a perfect pizza.

Rob Crawford

--I think I'll vote for the candidate whose slogan is -
"We shoulda been drillin' Yesterday!"--

Bill Clinton, having served two terms, is no longer eligible.

Wasn't the left's line back then that any drilling started then wouldn't be available for another decade?

That's not the type of drilling I, nor Clinton for that matter, was thinking of.

Melinda Romanoff

OK, Plame-ites.

This should have some legs, and they're probably in the new mayor's office.

The nice thing about a true pizza oven is the door design. The top of the inside of the oven is high enough above the top of the door opening that heat is not lost as it is by opening the door of a conventional oven. The green egg can get hot enough but the temp can drop quickly by opening the lid for a little to long. My brother cooks with a green egg and has mastered everything except pizza.

Just for Narciso, neo-neocon suggests someone else besides the pasty pale Julianne Moore for the Sarah Palin role.

My Rep had Lyle Lovett pop in to say hi today

WASHINGTON -- Country singer Lyle Lovett made an unexpected visit on Wednesday to North Carolina Sixth District U.S. Rep. Howard Coble.

Coble was in a meeting with two dozen Realtors from Guilford and Moore counties when Lovett, who was in Washington for a meeting, stopped in to say hello, officials with Coble’s office said.

Coble, known for his ability to recite bluegrass and country music tunes, impressed Lovett by reciting Lovett’s hit song, “Farther Down the Line,” officials said.

I really do like me some Coble.

clarice

Molto grazie, Rick.

What I do when I make pizza--because I like i really crispy..is to cook it on the really preheated stone with nothing on it for a few minutes--pull it off and put on the toppings, then return it to the oven. Even with a stove that doesn't go over 500 ..it comes out quite well .
Of course you need to make a dough that is stretchy enough to be rolled or pulled out rather thin..I long one that's had a long cool rise for better flavor.

One vote at at time, I guess. I make that little speech every time someone says "I would vote for [fill in the blank] but [he/she] doesn't seem electable." It does seem that Republicans are more prone to this disease than Democrats. Giuliani doomed himself from the get-go by listening to people telling him he couldn't win the early contests so it was better not to enter them. How'd that work out? (By the way, I didn't mean to sound critical of you, hit. Just ranting.)

So he's running on his dad's record?

And still, why Ann Arbor? It's not the state capitol. It's not the biggest town in the state. It's a far-left university town.

Jackson, MI is just forty miles away and is the "birthplace of the Republican party". Sounds like a much, much better choice to make your case to Republicans than the People's Republic of Ann Arbor.

I've never liked him -- too much "it's his turn" and too much of a blue stater. Choosing this venue just makes me wonder if he knows which party he's running in, and whether he has the faintest idea of its mood.

I think Romney was a terrible candidate last time, but I think he'd make a great president.

That's what I'm going to keep my eye on this time. Candidating and Presidenting are two completely different things, as we've learned the hard way.

Sorry, I didn't know at the time maryrose, I would have waved at you! Carmel is always fun and in a lovely area (you must have done the whole Monterey Bay route if you visited Santa Cruz and Carmel!

I should share a story from Ford's campaign kickoff. It was in the basketball arena on campus, and I was in the nosebleed seats. About a third of the way into Ford's speech, some wiseacre not too far from me inflated and popped a paper bag. The security folks stormed up the aisles, since it sure did sound like a gunshot.

Ford didn't miss a syllable, his view on the crowd and his notes didn't change, and he just continued on. Rather impressive.

centralcal

I hear what you are saying, MayBee, but you gotta be a decent candidate or you never get the chance at Presidenting.

The year after Mrs H and I were married we took a camping trip all around the state of Wyoming (she used to live in Casper). We started out in the southeast corner in Medicine Bow National Forest (I think we may have camped for free there because there was hardly anybody else around), then the Tetons, Yellowstone, Big Horn Mountains (probably the biggest surprise of the trip; they rise right out of the desert and are quite steep) and Devil's Tower. When we were at the main lodge in Yellowstone the Presidential helicopter brought Ford for a campaign stop. Needless to say I voted for him in vain.

"No. Both Hudson and Vinson went into great detail explaining why it is not a tax"

I should have said it should be a tax or I can only see it as constitutional as a tax. Congress couldn't pass legislation as such because of public outrage so they devised the current screwball mandate scheme. My point is no judge should support the deception. I'm in agreement with Hudson and Vinson. I beleive the power exists in the constitution to erect this scheme but that doesn't mean it should be done. I don't know what to call people who would voluntarily live under that type of system but I wouldn't call them Americans as I understand the word.

Drove to Ensenada to get it (errr... well, that's a long story, but I think they are made near San Diego now)

It does fantastic pizza, will hold 650-750 degrees through many 7 minute thin crust pizzas. It will also do a 20 hour overnight brisket at a steady 185 degrees, seared steaks at 500, and anything in between.

Rick Ballard posted:
The French instituted border controls at the Italian border where the Italian A10 becomes the French A8 (just beyond Ventimiglia - it's the highway along the Riviera) last month, stopping anyone who seemed a bit too dark. The Italians had a fit because they want to get the North Africans out of Italy ASAP and I believe the French backed down. At least, it's not on the front pages in Italy anymore.

Rick,

I was stationed in Italy (Aviano) from 75-77. Had the opportunity to travel all over Italy. For the most part, the only people of dark/black skin we normally saw in our travels were other US military personnel.

Forward to 2006 and I make my first trip back to Italy since 1977. Fly into Milan, get a rent a car and head out toward Venice. All along the way I see Africans driving trucks, working at the rest stops, and some construction work. It was just not seen 30 years earlier.

I finally make it back to Aviano and visit with an Italian gentleman who worked with me back in 75-77 as a contractor at Aviano. Glauco had made many trips to the US during his lifetime and was quite familiar with US politics, especially at that time, the immigration debate. As bad as I tried to tell him our problem in the US was with illegal immigration, he insisted the Italian problem with African immigration was worse. I especially saw his point in Venice with all the African style bodegas along the waterways leading to St Marks Square. Nothing like it 30 years before.

I understand why France says no way.

My problem with Romney is RomneyCare. He can convince me that it's significantly different from bunglercare - but I'm willing to listen to details and I know something about healthcare. However, the media will quickly turn if into a very fuzzy question about why people should vote for RomneyCare, the prototype, when they can vote for bunglercare, the new, improved, upgraded model. Trying to convince most voters there's a significant difference between the two will only sound like an ego battle between self-absorbed policy wonks. Their eyes will glaze over & they'll decide there isn't a meaningful difference between the two.

A decade back a real nice Indian guy, Ram, who had married a Filipino, had started an Indian Restaurant on what was the old Navy Base in Subic Bay Philippines. His restaurant was just behind the Hotel (an old refurbished barracks) where we stayed during Subic Layovers when my company still used the old Cubi Point Airport as our Asian Hub. We started doing a few Subic to Bombay charters and knowing about it he asked if we could possibly buy him a Tandoori oven in Bombay and bring it to his Restaurant. We did.

Wound up being a huge thing, big as a dishwasher and extremely heavy duty, but the night we delivered it he want crazy. We sort of had a housewarming at the little Bar in the old barracks as he came over to see his shiny new baby. Don't think I'ver ever seen a guy so happy and so grateful.

Anyhow, we had a whole troop out to haul the thing over to his nearby restaurant, and the next night, after having gotten it all properly hooked up and the kinks worked out, we were all invited over for a free banquet he threw for us in appreciation. At the banquet he took us into the kitchen and explained how it worked like a proud brand new mother showing us his baby, and then he explained some very interesting things about how in India the proper tradition is to have the Restaurant facing in a certain direction, required also to have a certain amount of open light and water and hills and trees and other stuff nearby in a proper geographic setting, and how he was so happy because he felt his kitchen and restaurant was exactly situated perfectly. That was fascinating. The food was wonderful, and we all stuffed ourselves to the gullet on amazing spices and curries and nan, and then waddled home very well pleased with ourselves.

Here's the only link I can find to Ram's Subic Restaurant. Its the first post, and in the bottom picture Ram is the chubby, friendly guy in the blue striped shirt. Sure am sorry we don't layover in Subic anymore. Loved the place.

Wasn't the left's line back then that any drilling started then wouldn't be available for another decade?

That's why we need to switch over to green, renewable energy sources. All the technology is already developed and economically feasible and ready to go. Right now! Right?


Anyone who trots out the "it'll take 10 years to develop energy sources through drilling" line needs to be shamed by pointing out that most of that time is needed for satisfying government red tape. And that the supposed alternative green sources will take *even longer* to get going because the means to efficiently exploit them is still not a reality.

His Dad was Governor of Michigan and Romney grew up and went to school there. He probably did not want to open in Detroit and Ann Arbor is the next town with decent size venues in which to appear. You have to start somewhere and your home state is as good a place as any. Also his wife is from there and also went to school there.

I'm not buying a "plastic man" description for Mitt Romney, not when I see things like this picture and the accompanying description by the surprised homeowner. This was not long after the devastating San Diego fires, first posted 12/03/2007:

Remember that big pine tree right in the front as you walk out the front door. It pretty well got cooked in the fire.

...

Last week a brother in the Del Sur ward sent me an email and said he and some others would like to do something to help. I told him that one of the things on my “to- do” list was to remove a tree stump from my front yard, but it was a pretty big job! He said they wanted to come and do it. I reluctantly said OK, but, “I do not expect you to really get it out because it is a big root. It has been there for over 20 years.” So he called me to confirm and said that they were coming at 7am on Wednesday morning and his DAD might come too.

...

As I drove up I looked and saw several men down in the hole around the tree. They were really going at it with power saws provided by the LDS Church. Then I got a Big Surprise. First I saw Matt, then beside him with chain saw buzzing away was a candidate for President of the United States!!! You guessed it!! Matt Romney was there with his DAD, “MITT ROMNEY”, former governor of Massachusetts and republican presidential candidate. He was actually in Levi’s and a blue T shirt and tennis shoes, with leather gloves and goggles. He was really sawing away at my stump!

...

There were no local news media. Mitt and Matt Romney were just being good neighbors helping neighbors....

I would expect nothing less from any LDS member, especially the men, when others, whether members or not, are in need.

Re: Romney in Michigan

I forgot until I was searching for my post that had the above pic and came across a later one reminding me that Romney won the Michigan primary there. So, not only is it his home state, it is a state he won, another reason he might want to start there. I'd also forgotten that he won Nevada.
