  1. The Moose Factory - Virtual Bar and Grill - Version 3

    20C is what we usually get in the summertime up here. It's so very nice when the sun is out and you're hunting waterfalls or hiking some sand dunes. We had our 30C days in late September. Two straight weekends we spent sweating ourselves to sleep. No one has air conditioning because for the other 360 days of the year it's just not necessary at all. We got about 5-8" of lake effect snow last night so I took a snow day with my kids and we stayed inside and ate slow cooked ginger pork, and I had some decaf vanilla-flavored coffee with my wife while our kids had hot cocoa. Why don't you join us?

    5907 Verlander got his ring! I'm happy for him and for the fans in Houston. I'm held hostage every night before our kids go to bed.

    Blueberries. You can pick them in the wild up here! James Bond or Jason Bourne?

    That is about 5C warmer than I find comfortable. Luckily it only gets that warm up here a handful of days every year. We're looking at highs somewhere between -10 and -5C for the foreseeable future. This leads me to one offering for tonight: SNOWCONES. EDIT: 29C is not THAT bad now that I'm thinking about it, but even so, that's pretty warm. Humidity... *shudders*
  5. What are you reading?

    I'm slowly making my way through the Surtur Saga in Thor #337-367. I heard a lot of people complaining about the new Thor movie being too funny so I went to some source material to check it out. I think the whiners have never picked up a Simonson era Thor (the Thors most worth reading), and there is nothing serious going on in those. They are great fun, with over-the-top epic language and art, bombastic writing, it's such a great story, and it reminds me of how great comics used to be.

    Once you're into October and you've got the leaves changing color and Halloween coming up it becomes my favorite time of year. A big plus is the dropping temperatures, I like the cooler air. It's getting cold here, and next week they're predicting highs around 15F. I think some chicken pot pies are in order.

    We are in the middle of the holiday season! This calls for a full spread of pies and Christmas cookies! Anything you want, sugar cookies with and without frosting, apple pie, pecan pie, chocolate chip cookies, etc etc let's get into the spirit of the season!
  8. Excellent work, everyone! Congratulations to the winners and to all those who were nominated! I'm happy to see the Trixies come back and I'm happy to see all those who won! Forgive me for being a little late to the party hahaha!

    I do believe there was a monument made in his honor, and I think if you search through SC4 recent files it's not too far down the list. As for me, I lived in Japan for nearly 8 years but I'm back in America now. Full bar tonight for those of you who love your family so much you need a drink to be able to face them. Me? Mine's pretty cool so I'll want to enjoy my turkey tomorrow without a hangover. 7UP for me!

    Yes, we were all saddened by his departure. I'm keeping the place running in his absence, so please stick around and join us for a drink. It's nice to see you back. It's getting colder back in Japan (it's basically winter up where I am now and has been for some time) so let's bust out the yakiimo and amazake, crawl into our kotatsu and get ready for the end of the year parties (bounenkai)!

    Icy cold weather has descended upon the UP, so let's warm our bones with a local specialty, the pasty. Meat, potatoes, carrots, and rutabaga rolled up in dough and baked, this is a great dish to keep your body temperature and energy up even as the days dwindle into the solstice. They're so yummy, and you wouldn't think so, but they are.

    I'm sick, so you know what? Chicken soup all around!

    I hear it goes well with teenagers who have no business trick or treating but do anyways, although I can't exactly speak from experience heh heh heh.

    HAPPY HALLOWEEN! I'm in my classic Star Trek costume sipping hot coco and handing out candy. Who wants some?
