    Ok, this figures...I just called the local watering hole near my house to ask if they will be televising the vice presidential debate tonight on the big screen, and they said no, they are instaed showing this World Series thing instead.

      Truth? Truth! You can't handle the Truth. Baseball > > VP Debate This was voted on and approved by the customers who will be watching it tonight. Very conservative.

      Again, Thursday night football trumps both. Unless the Mets are playing.

    Good day all...

    I'm feeling better but it's still a day for pho tom (Vietnamese rice noodle soup with shrimp for those who don't recognize the name).

    • Truth™@Mildred

      Pho Tom is good for what ails you. Trust me on that.

      Mee three, but I just click on a Klatschers's recent comment and *presto* I'm here. Maybe yesterday's biblebotz nabbed our link.

      STOP Obama's terrorism against Medical Marijuana cancer patients. STOP – For God's Sake – STOP.

        Terrorism? That's a bit of a stretch no? Besides, we hate it when people try to politicize a food blog, just sayin'.

        October 11, 2012 at 12:32 pm |
        • AleeD®@™©JbJiNg!eŚ®™

          Now, now. What have we told you about playing with your food?

        • Clarissa

          Masked agents storming legal dispensaries and throwing older women to the ground inside while they are getting their medication. Obama laughs about it on National Television. Disgusting.

          October 11, 2012 at 1:09 pm |
        • Truth™

          Obama is a liberal stooge. What other type of behaviour would you expect from the party of hate?

          October 11, 2012 at 1:12 pm |
        • ™©JbJiNg!eŚ®™

          Unless this involved (legal) medical marijuana brownies, I contend the comment has no place on a food blog. Nuff said. Thank you and have a nice day.

      Yeah, we have a bug in the system. I tried again to come here but it redirects me to yesterday's thread. aaarrrrgh!

      Too good! Been there, done that! Had a family member (dead now) who lived in Torrance for over 20 years. Have lots of fun!

    Oh, happy day! After a year long battle of varying custody and visitation battles and a few child support hearings, not only do I now enjoy significant more time with Little Dizzle, but a new Child support obligation has been calculated at almost half what I pay now. That's like a 12% raise. I'm RIACH, BIAYATCH.

    "Funny" how this took over a year for me when it happens within 10 days for her in the past.

    Good morning! Chilly here today, but below freezing forecast for the next couple of days.

    Glad to see most of the guys had the same reaction to the "filtered" alcohol that I had, saw that on a lunchtime talk show and had to post.

    Congrats to RH and Big Blue on the renovation project, are they going to fit a big chicken head on top of the cab, too?

    Have a great day, everyone!!

    Good morning all. Looking forward to tonight's schoolyard spat, aka the Vice Presidential Debate, which is sure to make "Honey Boo Boo" look like "Masterpiece Theatre". But let's not politicize a food blog here...:)

      Thursday Night Football will always trump a VP debate for me.
