    Honey and Mackey’s ice cream shop in Plymouth. Corner of Hwy55 and Hwy24

    They had it last time I checked their Social Media. They have been making a number of flavors of pie since the last shutdown

    They are funny the first few times. They get kind of stale. Especially the fencing and clogging one. I will still sing “Round and Round” every time the Ratt one comes on.

    Quinoa doesn’t really taste like anything, so we treat it like we would rice if we have it. We don’t really seek it out, but with how fast it is done it comes in handy with the little one.

    Seeing a huge grouping of US flags like what was out on the National Mall today is always just a cool sight

    Growing up on military bases it was cool to see anywhere from 25-100 of them on parade fields or other spots when special events were happening,

    My wife gets emails from the yarn shop in Stillwater and they are already offering a pattern and yarn to make the mittens.

    The ones I’ve most enjoyed are the ones of him sitting in the middle of the Jedi Council, the one where he’s photographed with FDR and Churchill, and the video of Demi Moore in the pottery scene in Ghost with him as Swayze.

    The one where he was photoshopped into Sharon Stone’s legs in the famous Basic Instinct scene was a little disturbing though.

    I guess I don’t get why that’s an annoyance. Can’t hear ’em anyway, the volume is too low. I just stand there and pump my gas, and don’t pay attention to anything else.

    Of you tap one of the buttons on the upper right of the screen it’ll mute the video.

    Kwik Trip has the same thing but only they have the decency to point out the mute option.

    The Holiday gas station near my house seems to have discontinued playing ads on the pumps

    I guess I don’t get why that’s an annoyance. Can’t hear ’em anyway, the volume is too low. I just stand there and pump my gas, and don’t pay attention to anything else.

    You’re lucky. The stations I frequent (usually holiday) have them blaring. And there’s an echo from hearing the same thing blaring from multiple pumps. So muting one won’t help a bit.

    I fill up at Holiday 99% of the time. Guess I *am* lucky.

    Did some cleaning out of storage on Sat, came across some old comics (1990s or so). Decided to google some values….and um, :shock:

    Weird stuff, like Eastman And Laird’s TMNT (which is kinda before THAT hit big), some offshoot comics like Morbius and some unauthorized Rock’N’Roll biographies (I have a Prince one that is going for $50- :shock: ), I bought it for $2. :shock:

    I’m so gonna cash in as much as I can. I haven’t even paid attention to what I had in this area in about 15 years or so.

    Pork with onions and orange juice in the crockpot. Pulled pork sandwiches with slaw for dinner. The house smells delicious.

    Recipe? I am sure it can’t be difficult or maybe one at all, but I watched someone use OJ on a BBQ show just today and I assume the acidic character and mild sweetness can only bring more joy to pulled pork! I think I have 6 butts in my freezer still from this fall when they were on sale for $1.29/lb.

    To get true pulled pork, you need a shoulder (Boston butt) but I have pulled other pork roasts too but not enough fat or meat muscles to be good.

    2 lbs pork butt, as mentioned you need the fat

    1 sweet onion, chopped

    1 c OJ

    1/2 c water

    2 T minced garlic

    1 T Dijon mustard

    Place pork in crockpot fat side down. Add OJ and water. Mix garlic and mustard together, then spread on pork. Add onions. Cook on low 6-8 hrs.

    Remove pork and shred with fork, return to pot. There’s still a lot of liquid, using a slotted spoon dish out pork/onion mix and put on big sandwich buns. I like onion buns. You can add BBQ sauce on top if you wish.

    I thought pork shoulder and butts were similar, but apparently not after doing some research. For pulled pork like above, likely need a butt not a shoulder.

    You are right, I fixed my recipe. I used a butt, not a shoulder.

    A pork shoulder is comprised of the butt where pulled pork comes from and the shank where ham comes from. That doesn’t mean you can’t get pulled pork from the shank. Professional BBQ’rs use the whole shoulders in competition and take meat from both muscles for their boxes. In grocery stores here, we pretty much only see cured ham from the shank..

    Finally getting my Bills Mafia hoodie. Shipping was no problem, but the order processing took a week. Either way, I got it, and I’m very happy!

    I really love the “Mafia” graphic. That was rather well done.

    I meant how the slow processing caused you to get it after they were eliminated from the playoffs

    Meh. I had enough jerseys to wear for the games (including reg season, as they had a seed to play for), and was going to keep that streak going. Lesser knowns to greats, as they advanced. I just wanted one.

    To time it right, I was going, in order: Riemersma, Paup, B Smith, Flutie, and the finale would have been Kelly.
