I'm not an especially good cook, but I'm a rather fearless cook .. because I'm more than willing to eat whatever I end up with.. That's the real secret for cooking, especially for guys.. Never put ANYTHING in the food your cooking that you haven't already tried and liked.. That way, no matter how it turns out, you'll probably still like it.. Burning it, of course, is a different matter.. Burned food is an aquired taste, but one that adds to your single guy survival capabilities.. I address that in my upcoming cookbook " It's Not What I Was Aiming For, But It's Not That Bad ".. However, guests may not be prepared for it, so in the final chapter, "What's That Funny Taste?", I list a number of explanations for "unusual" tastes in the food you cooked.. A good one is to attribute it to another culture .. "It's the latest thing in Bangladesh cuisine, its called 'blackend curry' .. the pungent taste shocks the palate and awakens the senses."...... Of course, if you're telling her that through the bathroom door, the date's probably over..

Hi All! I just got back a couple days ago from a road trip to Red Lodge, MT! (from Miami) What a trip. I really enjoyed going through NM, Wyoming and into MT. From Taos, NM we went north on 285, then 24, then 91 to I-70 for a short while. Then we headed north on 9 and up 125 to Saratoga, WY. What a neat little town. We were so late getting there (9:00 pm) we chose the nearest bar to partake in some grub. We met some interesting people. The next morning we visited the hot springs in town then headed up 287 to Lander (nice!), then 789 thru Thermopolis, then 120 to Cody........ then scooted over to Red Lodge. We avoided interstate highways as much as possible. The state and county roads were wonderful, no traffic and up close to gorgeous scenery! Loved the sagebrush, loved the wildflowers, loved the dry air, friendly people. I then spent a week staying at my friend's place in Red Lodge. More on that later.

Default More ways to waste time!

A huge collection of antique, rare, and out of print books, converted to plain text (with many illustrations, photos, and covers intact) ... much easier to use than Google Books:

ChestofBooks.com: Read Books Online for Free

Among the oddities is The White House Cook Book | by Hugo Ziemann, F. L Gillette -- I've seen this book in a rare-books store but it was way out of my budget. It's written the old-fashioned pre-1900 way, not at all like modern recipes.

It's all been OCR'd so there are some strange "scannos" here and there, but for the most part it was a good job. Tho I was amused by the persistent error of "Chesapeake Bat Dog". I doubt it will fly even under its new name.

The only real downside... beware of the site map -- tho it's beautifully done, it's 25 MEGS in a single page -- that's about 6 HOURS on rural dialup, and was a good long time on broadband. Its sheer size will lock up many machines.
