4 I just spent about 5 days in Santa Fe with the wife.  We had a great time, and among the high points was the food.  (We had been given tips on where to go by an old friend who grew up there.)

If you're there, try Santa Cafe and Geronimo's for dinner.  Both were excellent.  We have a habit of eating a big breakfast, then skipping lunch, and we always feel much better when we do.  I recommend the 3-egg omelet at NY Deli, accompanied by a good bagel.  It's more than enough food for two.

5 Chocolate cake. Really delving into the Great Unknown here. Is cake flour required?? I'm just a simple guy, trying to do a simple job. A chocolatey chocolate cake, with chocolate frosting. Well it's sort of like pie..

11 Common Tater, if you are making chocolate cake from a recipe, the recipe will specify cake flour if that is what is needed. Most cake recipes, however, just say "all-purpose flour" and that's what you would use, the regular stuff that comes in the 5-pound bags.

16 You are a cruel person, Misanthropic posting that pie picture. I just stepped on the scale to check my GAINZ and I see I have gained about 2 lbs since last week. That said, I also did some very soreness inducing workouts this week so I will attribute it to muscle gain.

19 MH, Thanks for not making that pie photo any bigger. It's already too horribly tempting. Diogenes (thanks for the kind words in the food thread) is absolutely correct: blueberries mean that God loves us and wants us to be happy. My grandmother's blueberry pie, the finest in the history of the planet, was proof of that.

24 I thought it was Mormons who were big on Jello concoctions. Last time I ate at a Mormon household, that was one of the offerings. Thing is: they are outstandingly nice people. We value them as friends and neighbors. So: so what if their ancestors' tastebuds were shot off fighting off the Feds over bigamy!

Posted by: Kodos the Executioner at April 30, 2017 06:39 PM (FOnk+) There's a Mexican restaurant here that used to do pollo pipian fajitas with a sweet peanut sauce (kind of like a satay sauce). Last time I ordered it a few years ago, they forgot to bring the sauce. "Hey, I think you guys forgot the peanut sauce" "Oh, we don't to that anymore" WTF? That's the signature part of the dish. I found a recipe for their cheese dip online and haven't been back since. Jerks. http://tinyurl.com/kr5wegd

Passed the 2 mm speck without incident Wednesday morning but only today has the soreness of the kidney pretty much ceased. Quite an experience. Asking for any advice what to do in advance of the next one... the scan showed a smaller one parked in the same kidney. Should I just head to the ER or try to write it out like people in the old days? Should I try to flush it out with liters of water or leave it be and drink normally? All input welcome.

105 PaleRider tip for any recipe that calls for cocoa powder. Use 1.5 times as much as suggested, sometimes double. I like my chocolate cake, fudge, whatever to taste like chocolate. Nephew and his GF shipped cookies and fudge for Christmas, really nice gesture but it was like "sugar flavored fudge?" had a bit of color but barely any chocolate taste.

183 CARACAS, Venezuela (AP) -- Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro hiked wages and handed out hundreds of free homes Sunday amid his efforts to counter a strengthening protest movement seeking his removal. On his regular television show, "Sundays with Maduro," the president ordered a 60 percent increase in the country's minimum wage starting Monday. It was the third pay increase the socialist leader has ordered this year and the 15th since he became president in 2013.

187 I've also never even seen a Bob Evans restaurant. I did know about the restaurant, however, and I've seen some of their chilled items on sale at Ralphs. And someone above said he tried a burger at BE, but they couldn't even get that right. Well, Bob's Big Boy did an incredible job with their Big Boy burger, but it hasn't saved them from a lot of trouble staying open, especially here in SoCal. Similar situation with a chain that's now down to their last location in Long Beach called Hof's Hut; the company has continued to do well, only because they hit it big with a new concept 20 years ago called Lucille's Barbecue. I have the impression that in the 1940s and 1950s, a proper restaurant where besides your usual steak and salad, you could get an actual, good tasting hamburger made with quality beef, was a big deal; but now that fast food is just another boring everyday convenience and tons of new choices are available, most of the classic burger restaurants of that era (Bob's, Bob Evans, Hof's) just can't make it anymore unless they can find another specialty to entice hungry consumers.

190 Oh goodness I am dying with laughter over here and rolling my eyes so hard.


I watched the first three episodes of The Handmaid's Tale today, because I found the story interesting in concept.  The anti-Christian aspect of it is utterly ridiculous, considering many things shown actually happen in the Muslim religion, but I get the mind of a lefty.


But, the best thing has to be reading a forum commenting on the show.  People are "literally shaking" because it "is a reflection on the current political situation in our country."  How "premonitiant this book from 1985 feels" and how so many men in our society would like to take all rights away from women and be able to call them sluts and deny them service in restaurants.


These people are living in a different reality.


One woman walked around her apartment for 30 minutes shaking and wiping away tears because she is so scared these things are going to happen because of who is in charge in politics. 


There is no rationalization that will ever get through to these people.

208 OK so for recently passed birthday, wife got me a "Master Blender's kit," where they give you 12 little bottles of malt and grain base, some mid-range single malts, and then some top-shelve ones.  So you create a blended whisky to your own taste. When you make a formula you like, their website allows you to plug it in, and it is priced according to your blend.  So the idea is to make a blend you like and is cheaper than the single malts.  Very cool.  I am re-discovering chemistry, which, to be honest, i always hated.

Posted by: NaCly Dog at April 30, 2017 08:08 PM (u82oZ) That's absolutely true, but of course they couldn't have known that at the time. The natural instinct was to avoid a collision. And a direct hit would have killed a few dozen crew members sleeping in their berths near the bow. *** Once I had a couple of geese walk right out in front of me while I was going 60 mph on a rainy highway. I swerved to avoid them, lost control, and spun out onto the grassy median. If I had just run them over that wouldn't have happened, but it never would have occurred to me to do that.

285 230 Heh. In the movie Titanic, when the berg is spotted, the officer on the bridge orders "Turn to Starboard!" BUT, the guy at the wheel, spins it to port. I noticed this when I saw it in the theater and was amused. Here's the clip: http://tinyurl.com/l5nacny Oops. Posted by: Mike Hammer, etc., etc. at April 30, 2017 08:20 PM (ZO497) Actually, that might be accurate. Before the advent of automobiles, ship's wheels were not attached to rudders like we think of them today. Consider a simple tiller attached to a rudder. In order to move the rudder to starboard, you have to swing the tiller left. When the ship's wheel was invented and attached to the rudder by ropes and pulleys, it worked the same way, because that was what sailors were used to.

286 Looking at that clip, the bow swung to port. That would make sense only if they had sternway. I never saw the movie Titanic. All the hole snipes did not make it. They kept power on until the end. A a former DCA, I dislike the ending immensely.

287 hey, off topic, but anyone besides me see the Exxon ads about making fuel from algae? Didn't phosphates get banned from detergents because phosphates made algae grow and clog up waterways?

Shit, back in the day that was the place to chow down after swim meets.  We didn't know any better and it was inexpensive - win / win.

289 I've never been aboard a craft that responded to the wheel being spun CCW by steering to starboard.

291 One of the very best Titanic books I've read is "The Last Log of the Titanic". http://preview.tinyurl.com/k9ouu4a The author describes the evasive action around the iceberg in detail, with illustrations. It was a complex, multi-stage maneuver, and Murdoch *nearly* made it.

292 Ya know, softball girl, I really don't care that Addison Russell's a good dancer. I just want to watch the fucking game.
Can you see Schilling doing this shit?

Posted by: Mike Hammer, etc., etc. at April 30, 2017 08:48 PM (ZO497) Sure, because today, ship's wheels behave the same as automobile steering wheels and airplane control columns. But it didn't used to be that way.

295 same exact thing in 'A night to remember' around 32:30 https://www.you tube.com/ watch?=3ftYho4K3FQ I expect it's actually correct. Turn rudder to left, big boat go right Posted by: John kerry at April 30, 2017 08:32 PM (vChNs) Titanic struck the 'berg on her starboard side, so I expect she was turning to port at the time.

297 My absolute favorite breakfast place in Santa Fe is Tecolote. Not as much atmosphere since they moved, but the food is still good.
