Thank goodness I didn't see Provel cheese mentioned!

That settles it, Velveeta is not cheese, it's more like half cheese, and half undetermined other stuff that could be damn near anything.
That's a very charitable synopsis, Norm.

Velveeta is 51% cheese, or half cheese if you round it off.
Does that make it "che"?

Or "ese"?

Or if it's all chopped up before adulteration, maybe "eee"?

Ya, I'm feeling really charitable this evening, I don't know what came over me.

At our wedding Tess started her vows with "My sweet Norman", the whole assembled audience burst into fits of laughter, I'll never get over it.

Norm, you have missed the entire reason that Velveeta is so popular and so delicious. Unlike the stuff you eat, Kraft has gone to the trouble and expense of adding 49% "enhancers" to their wonderful cheese. Regular cheese makers just give you plain old ordinary cheese, with none of those exotic enhancers to bring out the rich flavor that is found in Velveeta.

So...in effect, you have been cheated. How can you feel good about that? I'd be angry if I paid several times as much for that "real" cheese and got none of those magical enhancers.

You need to try some of this: https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0084B8Z90/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?qid=1454980789&sr=8...1eL
It's not gimmicky "let's add some capsicum to make it hotter" sauce. It's peppers, vinegar, and spices, but it will make your socks roll up and down.
It comes marked "Fire" on the box and they aren't kidding.....







If you have hemorrhoids, head straight to the ER a few hours after consuming this product....grab a tray of ice and stick it where the sun don't shine on your way there.

Honest Injun....no disrespect to Injuns, they are fine and honest people...Mrs Rupert is 1/4 Injun...that little bottle of blazing hot sauce came in that big box from Amazon. It was packed like it was nitroglycerin. I got a flash drive a few weeks ago in the same size box.....I think it would have held a thousand of them. What's up with the big boxes?

At our wedding, as we descended the three steps from the Sanctuary, I stepped on her train and she SHRIEKED!!!

My Best Man said, loud enough to be heard, "Nice start to the marriage, Bub."

AAAaaannddddd . . . . . The entire congregation burst out laughing.

At our wedding I asked Mrs Rupert's father if he would really pull the trigger on that shotgun.......he said..."I will." I said ..."I do."

Since she was only 12, she said..."Can we go to Disneyland now?"

Well, no and yes sort of. No to the Velveeta part. Tabasco is a pepper but only by scientific definition.
Believe it or not, some people in these parts refer to ketchup as "hot sauce".
Is that because it is red, in the sense of colour?

That's to justify charging so much for the shipping. Or maybe that the courier guys lose small things.

Velveeta is real cheese .....but Tabasco is not real pepper. It is more like medium ketchup that is watery.
The tabasco jelly is kind of like jam.

Total for grill and parts was about $100.
Not bad for a grill that originally went for around USD 1000.00 IIRC.

I think I need some serious therapy or a long vacation.
That actually makes a little sense.

So now when you buy that expensive cheese, you are going to feel cheated that you don't get those wonderful enhancers?

I need some therapy, a vacation, maybe a new girlfriend....something. The doldrums of summer always hit me in February, and this year they hit me hard. I just can't get excited about anything, life seems meaningless, and although the weather has been very nice, the trees are still without leaves and there isn't a bloom in sight. I'm hanging on......but can't figure out why?
Therapy doesn't work for me....when you already have the answers but refuse to accept them because it is February, it is a waste of money.

Spring is only weeks away....isn't Spring fantastic for curing the doldrums!

Not to spoil your daydreaming, but this is Leap Year, so tack another day on February.
19 with a little snow here this morning, and I have to get out in it shortly to go get my ears lowered.
