    Sonos dropping support for most of my stuff

    Same here, a 5 becoming a 'legacy' product. This part is more concerning than just losing updates to the 5..."If modern products remain connected to legacy products after May, they also will not receive software updates and new features." Terrible way to do business as once die-hard Sonos...

    Here's another option for nearly instant smoke in an electric, smoker sawdust shavings. I mix some of the sawdust with regular chips. https://smile.amazon.com/Camerons-Products-Smoking-Chips-Mesquite/dp/B000ZM1KU2/ref=sr_1_7?keywords=smoker+shavings&qid=1578761864&s=lawn-garden&sr=1-7 They...

    One of the reasons I like an electric smoker- so easy to use. Push a couple buttons and it 10 mins it's ready to go. No fire to mess with although I'm a gas grill guy, too. Granted, 95% of the time it's only me & the Mrs. If we had an army to feed or lots of guests a big smoker might make more...

    Oysters on the grill, yum! All of the above looks delish. No pics but I smoked some trout last week. They were pretty thin so only took about 20 mins. Will do again. It was fantastic. Trying to talk the Mrs into putting smoked fish dip on the Christmas menu although oyster dressing would be...

    Tired of stuff growing in between my travertine pavers

    Glyphosate showing up in our food supply (cereals, etc)- Cheerios, Nature Valley cereals contain Roundup ingredient, study finds Monsanto is such a sweetheart company. Their roundup ready seeds infiltrate neighboring farms. Farmers can't kill them with the most dominate product on the market...

    What does your pool paradise look like?

    Did you pull the leaves off? We have 5 plumeria. Last year we let them go dormant in a closet. Trying to keep them alive this winter in pots inside the house so they'll get a quicker start next spring. With all their leaves they take up quite a bit of room. Will yours go dormant or re-grow leaves?

    Visions of you wrestling a lion and then cooking it up. Really setting the bar here!...or maybe I need to step away from the bar. Looks yummy.

    Bad pool boy!

    As a business owner...if that was my employee I'd definitely want to know. As a homeowner...if they don't fall over themselves to make it right with you they're fired. Would be generous of you to not post a review too. Nature calls but there better ways to handle it. ON the equipment?...I agree...

    Thanks! It's easy. I'm no pro, I've always removed the back using a serrated knife. Scissors may be even easier and safer. I stand the bird on end and just saw the knife down one side of the back then down the other side. The bones are really thin so it doesn't take much effort. Then squash it...

    Swim goggles/gear for youth swim team

    I was about that age when my dad dropped me off for my first swim practice. My older brother could swim. I could probably dog paddle. About the only thing I remember is nearly drowning in the lane against the wall with all the waves everyone else was making. Nobody had goggles. Nowadays kids are...

    What else is your pool good for?

    Well, technically that's pretty much how Sea Rays are built. bwahhh! (possibly the wrong forum for a boat builder dig)
