    Good morning and happy Sunday. Hoping that Queen's family and friends are safe after that collapse last night. Thoughts and prayers are with Indiana today.

    Happy weekend, everyone! My sorry butt is at work, of course, but I'm looking forward to getting off at 430 instead of 630!

        Same ol schitck, different day. Basically playing on the internet waiting for 4 to roll around.

        How are you this fine weekend?

        'twas OK. I was a bit off my game yesterday, and didn't think to write ahead of time, so... "meh".

        I'm sleepy.

    Good Saturday Morning my Homies..It's a beautiful start to the day in southeast Texas,78 degrees,the sun is rising and not a cloud in the sky. Who wants coffee and Apple Fritters,besides WD? We got up extra early this morning to watch the meteor shower and to take a break from everyday BS that seems to build up throughout the week. Nothing better than to sit on the patio and watch the Geckos chase each other around the deck and doing their best to rile up WD by running as close to her as possible. Our bird feeders are really busy with our Cardinal family-2 males,4 females and numerous kids chowing down and all are singing this morning. It must be our lucky day as we had our first hummingbird of the season checking out the feeder this morning also. Hopefully Fall is close behind as it's too damn hot during the day. Anyway,I hope you ALL can take a break from your busy lives and enjoy the nature in your own back yard. BTW,My condolences to My Brother Truth as I saw where his longtime LUV Joy Behar got married. On that note I shall back out for awhile before I get bombarded with crushed Coors beer cans. Make it a Great weekend Everyone. :)

    • Truth@RichHead

      Good morning Bro...Sounds like you have the complete morning going. I truly believe that sometimes the best entertainment is as simple as watching a sunrise. Supposed to hit 88 in Denver today, which will be GREAT.

      Saw that about Behar...I truly feel for that man. What makes someone want to put up with shrillness on that scale??? Maybe she has some "redeeming qualities " or something...?

        I heard through the grapevine that he was deaf and also blind,a True blessing for this poor guy. HA! Hope you both have a great weekend.

    Looks like your plan worked and the comments are going much nicer over on the pb pie thread. Now if we had a recipe for the pie in the picture...that looks amazing! As in lick the screen good. And can you do anything to make available to us the Eatocracy cutting board?? :)

    • RichardHead@JBJ

      Brainstorm..... O.K. Here's how I see it, T-shirts,hats,coffee cups etc are available thru One CNN Center in Atlanta Georgia,sooo it seems logical that THEY would be the Buyers or producers of the aprons and cutting Boards. We should ALL protest out front of the Georgia office until our demands are met. Besides,we wouldn't have to mess with the NY traffic. :))

      August 12, 2011 at 5:06 pm |
      • JBJingles@RH

        I fly through Atlanta all the time...hmmm. But I was looking forward to showing up in NYC cuz Kat is there! I'll be the one arriving on the red double decker bus with the green foam Statue of Liberty crown on my head, complete with camera around neck. Hubs will be the one beside in the velcro sneakers and black socks.

    • AleeD, Thread Dominatrix@wendy

      Between spinning on the pole and the Cold Stone being on a turntable (not to mention some of the other goodies that turn your world upside down), changing orientation is easy to get used to.

      I think Sir Bid might be having a problem with his stomach from too much spinning tho'. :)

      August 12, 2011 at 2:33 pm |
      • wendy

        the pole isnt on the cold stone, is it? that could cause some minor issues when sliding down...

        August 12, 2011 at 2:39 pm |
      • AleeD@wendy

        Hmmm, for Summers as hot as this one has been, we could be arrange that way. ;) Slide down the pole, in a sitting position .... I'll get on that after taking care of our guest room next week.

        I WAS kinda picturing our Cold Stone as a round marble slab, maybe 10 feet in diameter 'cuz we have a rather large dungeon. The slab is refrigerated from underneath and has a hole in the middle – like a big donut. The pole could be put in the the center of "donut hole." While you're folding ingredients into your ice cream you can enjoy the show! HA!

        August 12, 2011 at 2:49 pm |

        HAH!!! i have this picture in my head of what RIchHead looks like... and would look like that that position... LOL! complete with the tassels and cowboy boots...

        you arent alone, lots of folks have laid bets down on our win tonite. :) i'm reserving judgement of this year's team until we play the game consistently from 1st quarter to the end of the 4th for at least 5 weeks straight.

        That'll be our new code for someone completely missing the point. "It's not about the pie!"

    Do not be alarmed! You may see some tweaks to the comments so the most recent one is first. Would love your feedback if we try that, since y'all would be most affected by it. It just made me heartsick that the top comment on peanut butter pie is so insensitive.

      I do love that one. And it is nice and dark.

      I ran across acrossed a copy of Spring Nicht in my ipod archives today, and though it's not that dark of a tone, the subject matter is. So I found it acceptable for my playlist today.

      August 12, 2011 at 12:49 pm |
      • I Heart Evil Grin

        I Love Maynard's voice, we used to go see a Tool coverband in Springfield all the time back in the day- spot on vocals- he eventually gave it up- his name was Aaron Lewis and his little coverband became Staind and sold a ton of records. Havent been to a Staind show in a while but he almost always ended his concert with a cover from Undertoe......Your free useless knowledge for the day :)

        August 12, 2011 at 12:55 pm |

        Agreed. They both have great voices. A rarity anymore.

        Vocal quality really adds a lot to the experience of the music. My favorite music is usually based on lyrics, vocal quality, and levels in the music.

  36. RichardHead@JBJ

    Hey Beer Babe,Let me first say I agree fully with your post on the other one. As to ribs, I recommend St.Louis style ribs and googles Alton Brown's rib recipe. The trick is to "Borrow" DeadEyes church key to remove the silver skin on the back of all ribs,make sure the grill is around 220 degrees and put the rub on just before you add the ribs to the grill. Enjoy.

    August 12, 2011 at 11:25 am |
    • JBJingles@RH

      Now do I want to soak these in your secret Dr. Pepper solution before hand? And are St. Louis ribs beef or pork? I'm being lazy to look up, sorry.

      August 12, 2011 at 11:36 am |
      • RichardHead@JBJ

        They is pork and of course after removing the silver skin,soak away in my secret ingredient. Beef ribs are called Big Country ribs down here but take a little longer to cook.

        August 12, 2011 at 11:40 am |
      • JBJingles@RH

        Thanks! Funny comment on DeadEye's church key...happens to be his last name! I'll have to find a rub a little milder than the last, as he didn't like it much.

        August 12, 2011 at 11:49 am |
      • RichardHead@JBJ

        O.K. Mz. Lazy....I did your homework for you...GOTO and type in st.louis ribs at the top of the page. Alton Browns recipe is the first one to appear. He lists all ingredients for the rub,how many racks you need,etc.

        I will bring the beer and cowboy beans.

    OK my friend, I need advise on grilling up some ribs! Do you have a super duper secret recipe you will share with me?

    Good Friday morning everyone! I just read the 1st post on the peanut butter pie thread, and wow, just wow. Brings to mind on of my favorite quotes from my late father in law..."that must be your azz talking because your mouth knows better". Yes that was me over there.

    August 12, 2011 at 11:14 am |
    • Truth@JBJ

      I saw that...That video brought tears to my eyes. I hope this family can heal from their loss.

      August 12, 2011 at 11:16 am |
    • Jerv@JBJ

      Yeah, and the Erin chick/dude is a real azztard.

      August 12, 2011 at 11:20 am |
    • Lulu@JBJ

      That poor woman. Can you even imagine?

      August 12, 2011 at 11:31 am |
    • JBJingles@Jerv, Truth, Lulu, RH

      And there is someone over there defending her. I swear these people are bitter because they deprive themselves of any decent food that tastes good, so they hang out on a food blog to preach to everyone else so they are not alone in their misery! That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

        The sad thing is that if you follow the "one last dance" link and watch him dancing with his kid, he doesn't exactly look overweight or unfit. Just because he loved peanut butter pie didn't mean that's all he ever ate. Everyone has their favorite dessert, but they don't eat it all the time.

        It's a shame that she jumped to such a damaging conclusion.

        August 12, 2011 at 11:47 am |
      • JBJingles@Evil One

        Exactly! Well, I can't see those type of video's etc. but others posted the same thing. 1 slice of pie every so often won't kill anyone. Idiots.

      Morning dude. Were you Paid Advertisement yesterday?

      August 12, 2011 at 11:08 am |
      • The Witty One@Jerv

        I sure was :) I'm still trying to figure out who Ronco is though...

        August 12, 2011 at 11:16 am |
      • Jerv@2

        Funny stuff. Had me laughing. Ronco got a little upset there but seemed to take it in stride.

        August 12, 2011 at 11:18 am |
      • The Witty One@Jerv

        I think Ronco is one of ours (AleeD?) so I didn't want to piss them off :) I do what I can to bring a little laughter to the world.

        August 12, 2011 at 11:25 am |
      • Ronco/Erika Estrada/Anastacia/IHEG/ Too Many others to remember

        It was me, I have stepped out of reality for a while, things in FL are much worse then we were being told. Posting random crap to keep my mind of the bad and try to keep upbeat for the sake of my spouse, stayed up with him all night on the phone and now I am exhausted. I had a feeling PA was one of you guys. I promise you guys I am not normally this uptight/b1tchy

        August 12, 2011 at 11:54 am |
      • Evil Grin

        Not to fear REEAIHEG&TMO, we don't hold much against anyone here. We've all had our out of control days.

        One collectively, as I recall, where we all but destroyed the Klastch, and pi$$ed off our lovely fearless leaders. :)

        You could hardly do worse than that.

        August 12, 2011 at 11:59 am |
      • The Witty One

        I seem to recall one point where we ended up driving a bulldozer through a wall or something of that nature :)

        And then there was the 5@5 debacle....but let's not talk about that.

        August 12, 2011 at 12:07 pm |
      • Truth@TWO

        Do you mean that contest that RichHead and Queen tied on the last day that we ended it?

        August 12, 2011 at 12:12 pm |
      • Evil Grin

        I was actually talking about the time we got a little too crazy with the nsfw jokes and comments. I swear there was steam coming from SLT's ears, and Kat's face was completely red with anger or mortification.

        I thought they were going to shut us down that day. That was a heavily moderated day.

        August 12, 2011 at 12:17 pm |
      • Erika Estrada

        LOL, you guys are too crazy

        August 12, 2011 at 12:30 pm |

        I am sooooo glad that I have NEVER been moderated on this blog....Hahahaha...And Yes,I did WIN the last 5@5. Take that Queenie!!!

        Can I get a little help with this Lila Chick please?

  40. Rick Perry@Truth

    I am sure you of all people realize that I won the debate last night. They needed a bigger stage for all of my Yes men.

    August 12, 2011 at 10:37 am |
    • Truth@RickPerry

      Funny you should mention that...I got a call from a local political focus group last night asking if I had any strong opinions as to how things are going. 55 minutes later, I was invited to attend a group meeting next week. Should be interesting.

      August 12, 2011 at 10:43 am |
      • Jerv@Truth & RP

        Oh yeah, I definitely would like to know how that goes. As for this Perry guy, is it true he got a D in economics, reopened the oil fields in TX and the jobs created in TX are big box, 8 dollar an hour jobs?

        August 12, 2011 at 10:49 am |
      • Truth@Jerv

        Not just in Texas, but that seems to be the rule everywhere. One of the things that I think is horribly under-reported is the TYPES of jobs being created and accompanying wages.

        When I went back home in May, we stayed in the part of Danbury, CT that used to be called "Commerce Park" and was so named because it was home to several corporations headquarters and employed a good number of residents. Now, almost twenty years later, most of those companies have either relocated or downsized and the area is home to a huge movie theatre multiplex, a huge Best Buy, Lowe's and Target. Not exactly comparable in terms of a jobs base.

        Not sure that government can do much to create jobs, except to get out of the way and let innovators do their thing.

        August 12, 2011 at 10:56 am |
      • Rick Perry@Jerv

        Since the Governor's Mansion in Austin burned due to arson, I have been living in a trashy place with a swimming pool, a golf course,manicured lawns etc.... All at the cost to the Texas tax payers. Jobs are plentiful at McDonalds,Best Buy, your local grocery store,lawn mower repair shops,there is a plethora of low paying jobs here in Texas. C'Mon down people, we have a real need for Bull castraters !

        What the heck, what's another trillion dollars spent on another stimulus package?

      Had a few good days, but I feel like i am slipping back into whatever virus had me. lack of appetite and tiredness is returning. Hopefully the weekend will allow me to kick it completely.

      August 12, 2011 at 10:01 am |
    • RichardHead@SirB

      Morning Bro, sorry that stuff is still kickin' ya. Did they give you any anti-biotics?

      August 12, 2011 at 10:05 am |
    • Sir Biddle@truth, RH

      No antibiotics as I have a virus and they don't work against them like a bacterial infection.

      August 12, 2011 at 10:12 am |
      • RichardHead@SirB

        Well in that case, Roll a FAT one,grab the scotch bottle and sit outside and get some Vitamin D from the sun. That will be a $ 35.00 co-pay please.

    I'm going to be useless as whale poop today (a hubby-ism). Got all my-before-you-leave-for-vacation-get-this-done work finished yesterday. So now I'm listening to a new-to-me Pearl Jam CD (right now "GO!") and updating my playlist – and getting paid to do it! Life is gooooood. HA!

      Morning Bro, Listened to the game last nite on the radio....The Radio guys were ragging on Tebow but it sounds to me like he had a pretty good game. He just needs some more playing time. I'll get to watch it tonite on NFL Network at 10:00. I'll have a cold Kool-aid to start please and Thank You.

      August 12, 2011 at 8:49 am |
      • Truth@RichHead

        Hard to argue with a QB going 6/7 with no ints, but you are right, time in the game is what he needs most of all.

        Nice easy and quiet day ahead here. Weekend is supposed to be nice as well.

    Good morning all. No cupcakes today :-( Had to take one of the furry children to the vet to have a hematoma drained...NOT fun. Puppy took it much better than my other half who couldn't even listen to me tell him about what the vet did without turning an interesting shade of white.

    Gooooooooooood Morning All and Thanks for the coffee AleeD. Friday,It's Friday-Yay!! I'm glad my Brother Truth had good news at the Doctors yesterday-Too bad the Dr. couldn't help out the Denver Broncos last night. HA!! On a Sad note,Jani Lane,lead singer of my favorite group Warrant was found dead at the posh Comfort Inn hotel in CA. I shall eat a whole "Cherry Pie" in his honor today. :((

    Morning everyone! Gonna be a busy day so I thought I'd stop in. I checked out Tazers blog. She found a semen cookbook on the internets. I thought SirB wouldn't mind checking that one out.

    August 12, 2011 at 7:31 am |
    • RichardHead@Jerv

      Morning Lil' Buddy....I heard SirB was working for the Siemens Group in DC so that would be right up his Alley. What's shakin' for the weekend?

      • Jerv@RicH

        Hey, whats going on dude? Since it is going to be a nice weekend weather wise, I see yard work in my future. Really nothing else going on here. Jani Lane was only 47? Hmmm, maybe he over dosed? You and WD working this weekend?

        August 12, 2011 at 7:51 am |
      • RichardHead@Jerv

        No Sir...WD and I will also be doing "house" stuff this weekend. Got jacked around in Florida and didn't get out of there till 6:00 pm. Weds. nite. Sooooo-like "Needs A Spankin"" (The famous race horse) we are off...Yay!!

      • AleeD@JBJ

        Thank you for asking and the well wishes! The first few days of vacation, we're planning to do some work to our guest room: scrape the popcorn off the ceiling then paint. After that, we're going to pack our bags for however many days are left in the week and head south, to points unknown.

        I just read thru today's Klatsch again. LOL! It felt like I was reading a Dali painting. Anything Kat & SLT wanna do with our threads is fine with me ..... well .... you know what I mean. ;)
