Interested in Hidden Valley dip mix but it somehow comes off too salty and oniony and has little bits of onion that won't hydrate fast enough?

Try using their *dressing* mix in sour cream as a dip. Much better, as it turns out, than the specialized dip mix.

Also had a cloudy day here, which is good for me. Something about the *character* of the light, not just the brightness. Like the color temperature or whatnot.

The Oscar Mayer stuff is not that good (but fine for sandwiches and cheap), I did not see Hormel.

Regular Hormel bacon microwaves better (doesn't burn as easily and cooks crisp and tasty) than most other brands, so I was kind of surprised not to see it much.

I know some people like mushy bacon, I like it crisp but not overcooked.

Books, movies, cross-country skiing. (I like the first and third, hate the second one). She loves movies, I can't stand them. I could give her books, but I always get her that. Perfume? Maybe, plus a spa certificate? The good thing is I only have a few days left to stew about it.

I actually like it, but it's badly misnamed. It's nothing to do with bacon, it's just slightly salty pressed turkey.

Obviously it's vastly inferior to bacon, but sliced turkey, lightly fried turkey bacon, and real bacon together on a sammich is pretty good.

110 Well, in other news ... today I actually met the polite young ladies, called Hotdoggers, that drive the offical Oscar Mayer Weinermobile.

Every year a new class of Hotdoggers drives the Wienermobile around the country. The current hot dog on wheels is 27 feet long. Some variation of the mobile hot dog has been on the road since 1952.

I left with some personal photos, and an offical Oscar Mayer Wiener Whistle... and wondering how much fortitude it took for them to put up with a year filled of wiener jokes. As they said, they know how to maneuver their buns.

I got a sekio fake gold tank watch, a Bolivia fake silver tank, a fake Rolex submariner by Invicia, and a mesh watch by some danish company that looks good as shit. All together less than $300.

remember seeing a few ads awhile ago, but wonder if they work or not.
Didn't pay much attention then. Didn't need reading glasses, then all of

Starter replacement is one of the simpler repairs. Just be SURE to disconnect the battery before you start. You might want to invest in some new battery cables while you're in there as there is often internal corrosion that will degrade the performance of the starter.

200 I'm thinking of trading my F350 for a Toyota Tundra 1 ton. I've heard only good things about the 1/2 ton Tundras but only recently found out they make a 1 ton pickup. Any input? The Ford pulls wonderfully but I'm looking at replacing the alternator for the 3rd time in 4 years and had to replace fuel injectors once.

Not having my own shop I'd prefer something that just runs. I only have a p/u to pull horse trailer and I like my steel walled, oak floored model so don't say just get the lighter Tundra.

202 There is one, and only one, way to cook bacon.

Deep fried.

Perfect crispness throughout. Can cook a whole package in a few minutes. When you're done, cook fries, tater tots, or onion ring in the same oil.

I use a Presto Fry Granpappy.

This may be obvious but don't fill it all the way. You'll have more oil when you're done. Delicious fry-cooking oil.

Technology - it's why we don't throw so much shit at each other anymore.

Pedicures - after 6 months of running they are fucking fantastic. Taking care of your feet is essential, and the salon chick does a much better job than me with my Xacto knife at trimming those calluses down.

Tebow could turn most men to paste with his bare hands if he chose to. If he wants a pedi - he gets the pedi.

If you want one longer session, do them both at the same time. There is even more room to work with the radiator removed, but on an older truck, this may not be a problem. At the very least, clean all the cable terminals and the battery posts (and I recommend spraying the posts with battery preservative/protector). If you pop the radiator, might as well put in new hoses while you're there (and check the condition of the belts.

I am editing an article for the local historical society about a man that served on USS Enterprise (CV-6) and USS Pittsburgh (CA-72). An old copy of the Chicago Manual of Style that we own says that only the name of the ship should be italicized.

However, last month's copy of Reminisce magazine italicizes the whole thing (USS and the letter/no. designation after).

So, have the rules recently changed?
