Haven't tried sun cheese yet, but a few years back cooked an egg on the deck, in a cast iron skillet on a 105F day in June.

Velveeta melting on the sidewalk contest.
I guess I have been wrong all these years. There is a legitimate reason for Velveeta's existence.

I'm kind of in love with these meatballs. I usually make my own sauce, but add these. Then I either do them with pasta or I make meatball subs, which is what I am doing now. I've never been much for packaged meatballs but I'm getting kind of addicted to these. I just wish I could find more than one kind around here, but unfortunately I can't. It's only the tomato sauced meatballs, beef. I'm told there are stores where you can walk up and buy all kinds of these meatballs in different sauces in like NYC and that. I'm jealous a bit I think. I think some of them sound really cool. The idea of Teriyaki ones for instance sounds good. Yeah, I could make my own, but these are way easier and I actually like them better than mine. I make really good meat sauce but meatballs are just too much work most of the time...

MamaMancini's Slow Cooked Italian Sauce and Meatballs

Here it is an article about a meatball bar...

Sounds yummy, sigh...

Sav, (can I call you Sav? - It is a rule in Oz that you have to have a nickname!)
I can't believe that you could find such a gif: That is priceless.


I saw it somewhere and it was also associated with the same phrase: 'herding cats'. That usage came up in relation to organising engineering academics to do something. Seems like a fairly common US usage, in their foreign language that they like to call English.


And Rod, you must know that a 'sav' is a kind of sausage.

Stick with Velveeta from now on.


What is all this about Velveeta? When I was young Velvet was a brand of 'pure soap' - meaning no perfume. Quite useful in the laundry for something, according to my mother.

Yep, "herding cats" is the term we use for what the management calls "working through others" - that is, having a horde of consultants coming in to ruin what little you have had time to do properly yourself.

As Racer often says, "Picture if you will, a zoo, inside an insane asylum."

Nice, thanks!

Of course, these guys, coming with their herd of consultants, are part of the problem, not the solution

Hello?


Ok.


Getting us back on topic - a practical tip on how to propel oneself over slippery surfaces. Very practical those Swedes.




Right, no way you could do that with a K-3, not even on Continuous Hi

My friend, what I have linked to is a practical tip for travelling on ice. No silliness, just perfectly sensible information.

Ok, another practical tip, this time our friends from Russia showing you how to open a bottle without a bottle opener. A situation everyone has been in, right?

Remember, no fancy stuff, just plain consumer information.

Ok Jean, I give up. If all you're looking for is a plain old chainsaw for cutting wood there's always some Americans to help you with that.

But how exciting can that be?

Oh, seems the Aussies have a more polished, easier to handle version.

Still, it's just cutting wood.

Pretty cool, but when is Coke considered beer?

Maybe it was lost in the translation . . . . . . . .
