      Yes, I was surprised a couple of years ago that the one Friendly's on Cape Cod closed up. A family destination like that seems perfect for a family, inexpensive restaurant.

      I haven't been to a Friendly's since I was just a tiny Evil Smirk. As an adult, I always just assumed Friendly's was like Chuckie Cheese's without the skeeball, and with clown-themed ice cream desserts.

      Maybe that's why so many of them are closing. I tend to choose other restaurants because I don't particularly like being around screaming children when unaccompanied by the creatures myself. Although, perhaps I will begin visiting Friendly's again when the Evil Niece has reached the ice cream consumption age.

    Modest proposal: The moderation software script could be slightly modified to allow, for example T I T IN a word. The word "Subst it tution" without artful letter spacing should be allowed.

    I realize that the mod bots are screening out vulgarities. But the code could be changed to include whole words in which certain strings are included. There IS a difference. There should be an inclusion in the script to allow for context, that is, simple word recognition. Not talking about subject or tone, just spelling..

    Just a thought. Might take a load off Kat and SLT.

      SirB – There are several on the internets, but I've heard raves on this one...I used blue cheese dressing last time, very tasty. Scoopable Fritos, Pita Chips, or tortilla chips are perfect.

      Ingredients:

      8 oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened

      1/2 cup blue cheese or ranch salad dressing

      1/2 cup any flavor FRANK'S® REDHOT® Sauce

      1/2 cup crumbled blue cheese or shredded mozzarella cheese

      2 cans (12.5 oz. each) SWANSON® White Premium Chunk Chicken Breast in Water, drained

      Directions:

      HEAT oven to 350°F. Place cream cheese into deep baking dish. Stir until smooth.

      MIX in salad dressing, Frank's RedHot Sauce and cheese. Stir in chicken.

      BAKE 20 min. or until mixture is heated through; stir. Garnish as desired. Serve with crackers or vegetables.

      "I honestly think (the picture) describes who I am," I think she believes that. It's a shame that she doesn't recognize that the picture looks like it belongs in Playboy, not the school yearbook...

      We didn't have a choice on ours, school took the picture and that was it.

        I am actually somewhat torn. I HATED the conformity of school and absolutely hated having to adhere to rules if I did not see relevance. So I understand wanting to do one's own thing.

        OTOH, it is a yearbook, and not a MAXIM magazine photo shoot. Given that young women get hyper seckhualized (here's to the modbots) already, I think that adding to it is actually pretty mysogenistic. She really comes off as saying "Look at me! I'm a huge bimbette!" Were she my daughter, I would want her to take some other form of achievement.

        Two things I find interesting here though...The absence of the mention of any father, and that the mother is basically encouraging this. I would wager fifty bucks that this is a mother who strives to be the "best friend" rather than an actual parent.

        Truth: perceptive observation.

        The absence of a father figure and mom trying to be "best friendzies" is mom's way of trying to overcome the dad's absence (if true). Then there's the "living through vicariously" subst it ution syndrome, and not so subtle shot back at the absent dad by allowing something he would emphatically NOT approve of.

        My 2 cents. Pop psychology........

        I'm with you. We were told what was proper & improper behavior or attire as kids.

        This young lady has no concept of how adversely this is going to effect her future. At 18, she's legally able to do anything she wants. If that's why her mother is being a doormat about this, she scr ewed up. If nothing else, there's usually an adult on the school's yearbook staff. That person needs to step up and answer the question, "Is this the image of your high school you want to portray?

      Absolutely inappropriate attire for a school yearbook. And moronic lawsuit to boot. The school set out rules and this child broke them. Tastelessly. That's the end of the matter. If she wants, she could have a printer print dozens of sticky versions of the photo, and she can give them to her friends to stick over the real picture.

      But, really, she should have more respect for herself as a woman. It's a shame that her mother has gone along with this instead of showing her that she doesn't need to pander to other people's hormones to feel good about herself.

And Drew Brees isn't half-bad to look at unlike Rottenburger who, hand to God, I thought was Refridgerator Perry from the back this weekend.
      Denver: I still hate Tebow with the fire of a thousand suns but I'm sort of hoping for a Saints vs. Tim "I am the second coming" Tebow.
      Houston: Due the Mayflower midnight move fiasco, I don't think I'm allowed to acknowledge the presence of a Baltimore based team.
      NYG: Although I'm a big fan of the Packers cheesehead hats, I feel that at least one Manning should have a winning season.

    My sister just called to tell me that my nephew will be part of the Super Bowl half-time show! Woo Hoo! He's in the drumline at his high school and they were one of the 2 Indiana bands to march in the Rose Parade last week. Apparently, drummers from several Indiana schools will be part of the half-time schow but they all have to sign confidentiality agreements so we won't know any specifics until we see the show. He's also grounded for using cell phone at school to call my sister and tell her the good news.

        Someone, i.e. a human being, programmed this software based on a set of parameters. Similar to the "you're posting too fast" warning, why couldn't the programmers write another pop-up that tells us when we need to change our email address? Or tell us what forbidden word we're using? Please know that my complaint is firmly lodged with the programmers, not the users. My apologies for not being clearer.

        Kat, I do understand how hard you and your editors work to filter thru the increasingly growing quant!ties of spam, childish rants, insensitive jokes and ignorant tripe that readers deem worthy to post on your site. For what it's worth, I feel your pain and you have my sympathies. I deal with wingnuts like these in my job, too. ;)

        Thank you both for the phenomenal job you and all your editors do to keep us in the food news loops and for putting up with our varied senses of humor.

        Just so we have a teensy bit of perspective - the blog has gotten 204,088 comments. On occasion, it's gonna hold a few of them back a day. That ain't a bad ratio.

      How is it your boy who never threw for more than 170 yards a game suddenly throws 315 against some skilled defense. Good game overall and enjoyed watching it. Hate New England, so you better have Tebow and Jesus do some work this coming weekend.

        Looking forward to this weekend's game as it will be a rematch of the 2008 playoff game. My wife and her family are huge Giants fans so this should be a nice family rivial as well. Lil Biddle is already rooting for the Pack!

        Would be even better if both Green Bay and New Orleans won this weekend as I will be in New Orleans on the 21st for work.

        I'm having some serious problems with my knees (and the areas just above) and I have a not so good medical history that includes bone cancer. So while the doc thinks I have early-onset Rheumatory Arthritis (wtf) he wants to a) verify the tissue/bone damage and b) make sure there aren't any growths lurking that the x-ray missed

        MRI = Magnetic Resonance Imaging is to produce images of the molecules that make up a substance, especially the soft tissues of the human body. Magnetic resonance imaging is used in medicine to diagnose disorders of body structures that do not show up well on x-rays

      You didn't do so well on the NP's this weekend? Very sorry to hear that. Was WD having an off week or did you pick for a change?

      Other than going out to dinner Sat. nite for a friend's birthday, I rested alot this weekend. Had tee martoonies with dinner, too. That place makes THE BEST caramel apple tinis ever. I'd have to be in a coma not to have one when I'm there. While I can't say it'll cure the common cold, I did feel much better afterwards. ;)))))))))))))
