Sitting in waiting room at the local Chevy dealership, waiting on service.

I was counting on the bilge for something interesting, or failing that something corrosively divisive; but so far nothing but blah this morning.

I have to admit, I have a pretty cushy deal with my car. If it so much as hiccups (in the proverbial sense) I drop it off and pick up a loaner. Each year, I trade my car in for a new one so breakdowns almost never happen, but there are occasional "Driving Events."

Think about what to fix for dinner.Does that fall under "interesting," or "corrosively divisive?" :D

I have a new tactic to deal with clothing of Katherine's that I don't necesarily like; but I dare not go public with it.

I'm still waiting on the what's for dinner thread to tell me if fried green tomatoes are eaten with ketchup, or what?

Paul Pless

I've never eaten or seen fried green tomatoes served with ketchup. I'd recommend a roumelade, or maybe a chutney.

If you have never eaten them you may need the ketchup. Slice them very thin. :)

Whats wrong with the chevy?

Why can't yo fix it yourself?

If my woman told me to think about what to fix for dinner I'd tell her to go fix me a sammich. And a few other things besides. But then I'm a bachelor again so you may not want to take just anyones advice.:d

RE: clothes you hate, get over it, or you too could be looking forward to doing your own laundry and eating meals straight out of the crock pot.

O.K. - Emeril's authentic Louisiana remoulade sauce (http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/emeril-lagasse/remoulade-sauce-recipe2/index.html)has 14 ingredients. That's about 10 too many. A completely different southernfood recipe (http://southernfood.about.com/od/saucerecipes/r/r90627b.htm)sounds suspiciously like a jar of Tartar sauce I have in the fridge with extra mustard.

How important are the veggies to a sauce remoulade?

RE: clothes you hate, get over it, or you too could be looking forward to doing your own laundry and eating meals straight out of the crock pot.There was a recall on the tailgate. It had actually already broke on mine before I received the recall notice, and I had already bought the part but it takes a special tool and a special 'dealership only' fastener (a special rivet) to install it correctly.

I actually do most of the cooking, both because when I'm here in Michigan my schedule is basically my own, but also because I like to cook and I think I'm pretty good at it.

Hey - wait a minute - what was the old tactic for going public in those of Katherines clothes which you did like.


We might want pictures.

ahhhhh, the dealership only special tool or fastener. Makes me want to scream and whack some automotive genius rip-ff artist with a good old ASE 1/2" ratchet.

Sometimes I think there has to be a loophole that if you buy the car you should be able to get the non standard tools with it. Defining non-standard would obviously be the problem. I hate to sound like a geezer but there was a time when a person could tear down and rebuild an engine with about 200 worth of tools and if you were stout enough you could still carry them all at once.


Working on my '94 is challenging enough. So far all I've had to deal with on the '06 is wiring harnesses and fuses for the trailer, aftermarket hitch, I don't know where the starter is. Don't want to.

I just posted my Tortilla Soup recipe on the "What's for dinner" thread.
That should keep you busy this afternoon.
Tell me more about your chili recipe, please!

We could start with Beef Wellington....Yummy, tomorrow will be good.......

Tortilla sooooop is easy..puree 1/4 cupp fresh cilantro, 2 cloves garlic, 1/2 medium onion, 1 small can green chilis (drain first), 1 each 15 oz can diced tomatos.......pour pureed mix in a heavy saucepan. add 1 tsp cumin, 1/2 tsp salt, and 30 oz chikkin broth to pan(I keep 3-4 boxes of Swansons on the shelf, Campbells has too much salt), bring to boil, turn down heat and simmer for 1 hour. Dissolve1 T cornstarch in 1/4 cup cold water, stir into soup. Add 2 cups diced cooked chikkin, simmer.... Cut a dozen corn tortillas into 1/2 inch wide strips, fry in hot oil until crisp, drain on paper towels. Serve with shredded monterey jack or cheddar cheese, sour cream, sliced green onions and favorite salsa.

I expect any little 'present' for the mancave will spice'n up yer life a wee bit there Paul. I bought a christmas present for moi last week called a shimano tld25 plus rod
Really I'm being a bit hard on myself because after all, I only bought it so I could catch food to feed family. Not that the family knows about the 'present' yet.

You wear them? Then they are so stretched out, Katherine can never wear them again?

No pics is the right answer.

Great reel!

I hope so Donn, my brother in law reckons it'll do the business on a kingfish.


So Paul,.... what did you buy... er, do to spark up your day?

John B
09-22-2010, 05:49 PM
Its got to double duty as a trolling reel Donn, which means lack of attention, time delay heaving to etc so it has quite a lot heavier than that although I forget exactly what. The fishing shop guru guy listened , nodded , made some ohh hahaha yachties ( sailboaters)eh sotto voice remark and then whacked the stuff on. I carry 60 and 120 lb trace..... they love rocks and I lost one at christmas that way.
Kingies are legal at 750mm long and I've seen them up to about 6ft and bulky like a big tuna.

this baby hopped on my light softbait kit at christmas and went back..

this old stick has a bakelite Penn.. ...

I want to do some live baiting under a balloon around the rocks this season with the new one. See what happens.....

John B

Ha , I still have the knife and fork lures. I ran them as teasers last year until I came within a gnats testicle of wrapping them in the prop.

probably a rapala or a popper I'm thinking, which is why I want good gear.. They're expensive and I don't want to lose the favourite one like last year.(On the kingy in the rocks)

"Self bought " presents are great. My last was a Lamson Waterworks Velocity 9-10wt!
No Kingie's game to try .

I have no idea what that is Purri.

Donn, I'll look into that....what do you think about the trace rig up... knots or do what that old rig had with alloy swages instead?

s'allright.. I do now..

They sometimes come down here I believe.. never seen one myself but I think the gamefish boys get em from time to time . They're more tropical beasties. Tonga/ Fiji/ etc.

fingers are crossed... My boy and I might get out on the boat for a night or two this weekend.
