Yeah, that's why we got him the shot, poor little fella.

It is suppose to be good for a year, but even the vet said get it every 6 months.
Rusty goes to dog parks and nose to nose with a bunch of other dogs every day, so if it is going around, he would get it without the shot.

Ver1 did well on her science fair evaluation. She got very high marks and the primary suggestion for improvement was one of the things we thought about doing, but couldn't because the materials we used for the experiment belonged to my parents and they don't live here, and I don't actually have a cheap flashlight I don't care about that I can tie on a rope. (they suggested setting up the experiment as part of the display).

Hey all, I don't want to sink the thread back into the depressing, but could ya all give some prayers/warm thoughts for my mother-in-law tonight. We were just informed that she found her husband dead in the house after she returned from running errands today. No body really knows anything - or at least those who do haven't worked the phone tree down to us yet. This is a total shock to all of us. It is my mother-in-law's mother that Orc went to say goodbye to in January, when I answered the phone that's who I thought the call would be about.

Thanks ladies. Orc's been online with his brother so we know a little more, but ....

Orc's father is still alive, but we never see or hear from him. His stepdad was the one who was a grandpa to the kids. We haven't told them yet.

Cool restaurant, sat in booths on the floor.



My parents took me to a Japanese restaurant when I was a little kid. They had to take me to the lobby when the chef "set the table on fire" (one of those hibachi grill tricks). It made a lasting impression on me because I still remember it, and a friend who is <2 years younger than me was also there and I remember her being an infant.

It's amazing what happens when people work in "TV" but not really in broadcast television. I bet almost no one has heard of Video Description either.

Good morning all.

Mayvn, some questions. For some reason (and I'm not the only one), I've never made a decent baked ham. Quit trying years ago. However, I have between 26 and 32 people coming for dinner Easter. So, the question is, do you bake hams? How? Could I do them the day before, slice, and reheat in the oven?

I'm not a fan of ham, tbh. My favorites have been the spiral sliced hams from Trader Joes. They're easy--you just warm them for 3-4 hours at about 200F, covered in a roasting pan, then remove, glaze if you like and bump up the heat to bubble the glaze. No messy carving, just set on the side and peel off one slice at a time.

Last ham we had...I'm not sure where it came from. Dougall? Do you recall? It wasn't bad. Same thing-roasting pan, covered in foil, low heat for a few hours. Glaze, bubble, serve.

I definitely wouldn't get one that wasn't spiral sliced, but I'm uber lazy like that.

I thought you always wanted spiral sliced, just for the ease of slicing.

the last one we got was a generic one from shoprite. nothing terribly impressive.

pretty much just follow the directions on the packet, you're normally only reheating, not cooking, put the ham flat sized down, and glaze or season however you'd like.

keep it covered to keep it moist, if you want to caramelize the glaze, turn up the heat and uncover for a few minutes towards the end of the baking.

and heat based on internal temperature, not necessarily on time, the slower the better.

I'm a fan of pineapple rings on the outside, with brown sugar sprinkled liberally on top. Maybe toss a few cored apple halves in the pan too.

Good morning all! Since we appear to be talking about ham, I have to say I'm not against a ham, I like it on or in things, but I don't go out of my way to cook them either. I go out of my way to cook a good corned beef once in a while though, but we're past that applicable season.

Weather is mildly overcast, so I'm gonna call it for evening showers only (which is what happened yesterday). Love that persistent gloom.

I'm just hanging out, really.

Another easy option is to heat in a crock-pot w/ some brown sugar.

Super easy, real tasty, and frees up the oven for other baking needs.
