“Sigh. It sticks. The acid would remove a cast iron "curing" like tomato does. But use anything that doesnt stick or burn. And BTW, I use the same technique with apples with skin on, less sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger. Use a potato masher as that is how my husband likes his applesauce. Now I also just did this with our bumper crop of peaches but I added some citric acid to prevent browning.”
“And how is that any different from any other processed, jarred sauce you'd buy in the grocery store? It's not like they make those pasta sauces fresh in restaurants. Restaurants are using the same preprepared jarred sauces we use (unless you make your own), only in larger quantities.”
“No, just because your wife cut you off (what, are you a terribly inept lover or something? Did you ever manage to get her off?) that doesn't mean all women always cut off their husbands. I suggest you work on your foreplay skills. Most married men get lazy and stop priming the pump. I can't be bothered to get undressed for a person who can't be bothered to be concerned about my needs.
So how much of that celibate monk life is your own fault because you couldn't be bothered? If there wasn't anything in it for her, I can totally understand why she would cut you off. Why shave and get all sticky when he's the only one who gets an orgasm?”

“Spoken as a true woman. I'm single, but thanks for your concern. There are no sexually-satisfied married men in America. None. End of discussion.”
“Sure but the consequences aren't that the cops get to beat you down for shoplifting. The consequences are a lawyer, a court date, maybe juvie and/or some community service. The problem with our justice system today is that its citizenry is perfectly okay with the cops being judges, juries, and executioners and deciding who is guilty without the benefit of a Constitutionally guaranteed fair trial. And apparently, we're okay with cops brutalizing children for petty crimes. Seriously. Do you even read what you post? What is wrong with you that a beat down by the cops seems like appropriate "consequences" for petty theft?”
“I don't eat breakfast at all but I frequently -- as in most nights -- have 1/2 cup of cereal with milk before going to bed, in the absence of dessert. Takes away the craving for sweet without being a cake, or pie, or a couple of cookies. Sure, it's not healthy, but it might be a better choice than a real dessert.
I'm turning into my grandfather who had a bowl of cereal at night before bed in the winter -- it was a bowl of ice cream in summer.”

“I sympathize with your late night cravings for sugar. I'm in the same sugar reduction war and late night is when the craving is the worst.
Sugar - more addictive than alcohol and deadlier than tobacco.”
“I don't. We don't need vigilante justice these days -- there's enough shootin' going on. This is why we have cops, and courts, and lawyers, and jails: It is not up to the average citizen or bartender to be judge, jury, and executioner. That's not that bartender's job, to meet out justice wherever he sees fit.”

“I don't think he did. He confronted the guy, who could have handed over the phone and waited for the police. Instead he tried to strong arm Chan who just defended himself. The perp probably initiated the physical contact. If Chan just chased the guy down and beat him up, that would be different.”
“I got a free upgrade to business class once on a flight. It was a very early flight. I boarded and promptly fell asleep within minutes of take off. Apparently, the guy sitting next to me also fell asleep. Did I mention it was a very early flight?
When we landed -- both of us were awakened by the landing -- we both yawned and stretched and I said, "Hey, nice sleepin' with ya!" He got this OMG look on his face, then busted out a grin and we both went on with our lives.”
