Fan Plans

Are you a fan of museums? Re-enactments? Ren Faires? Cook offs? Rodeos? TV shows? Star parties? Sci-fi conventions? Etc etc. You can post your favorites here. Thread inspired by the request in the Star Trek thread.

Plans for winter camping?

Any winter campers here? Where are ya going? We head to the Blue Ridge mountains and southern climes in winter. We have to have our annual seafood trip to Louisiana and Savannah areas. **Will swing by The Neutral Zone en route to Savannah definitely.

Rather a sensationalist post. We winter in central Florida every year and are surrounded by lakes. Common sense will keep you safe. Anyone that walks their dog near water has none. Besides, during the winter alligators are so dormant they don’t bother anyone if you leave them alone. That’s just it: common sense is often left at home by vacationers. A vivid reminder, especially to those who live in states without gators, that these creatures pose a real threat, is periodically necessary. I will also add that the slow moving St. John’s River in FL is also a gator haven. So much so that they have an annual gator hunt to keep the population in check. Having lived in FL, AL and TX, I have seen gators emerge from hibernation on warm winter days. They will “bother you” as you called it: attack is a better word. They’re primitive and have essentially 2 instinctual drives: eat and reproduce. On the b side gator tail is not too shabby. Tastes like a lightly fish-flavored chicken. Pretty good with Cajun spices.:w Dumb but true: Friends came to home one evening and asked if I wanted to go frogging. Well since I had never been before (or since) I went. Four adults and two children in boat. We saw a couple alligators and that was when my friend said one can tell the size of the gator by the distance between the eyes. He decided to catch a small one. It turned out to be about four feet long. Naturally he dropped him in the boat and it thrashed around and knocked out all the lights. 12 legs and feet in a boat in total darkness with an angry gator. Well when we finally got the lights back on there was all the adults and one kid in the front of the boat and one 4 year old (sucking his thumb) and the gator in the back of the boat staring at each other. You can't cure stupid You got that right:c

RE: Trekkers Alert: If you're a Star Trek fan...

For The Hardcore Trekkies A full ship (4000 passenger) charter.........and it's sold out. Wife and I booked a quick 4 day trip to the Bahamas in February and were puzzled why the same ship wasn't doing a regular revenue cruise in late February. My God, the Romulans & Vulcans seized it! :B A number of the major stars will be on that cruise. No surprise that it’s sold out.:C

Keep your pets (and your children) safe and away from waters like ponds and lakes. Alligators have become such a problem they're even eating each other. Massive gator swallows smaller gator whole. Alligator rushes out of the water and steals FL boy's fish and fishing rod. These prehistoric critters will also rush out of the water and grab your children, your dogs and your cats (just look it up online). Anything that moves is a potential lunch including adults (see attacks noted online). Not my idea of a vacation.

RE: Trekkers Alert: If you're a Star Trek fan...

Bumping this thread because I'm a geek and loved the thread. We need more stuff like this. :) Thanks and I agree! We are scheduled to visit Neutral Zone Studios later this month. I am an original trek fan who watched the premier on television in Sept '66. I have since infected both wife and son with the TREK virus. As the kiddos say: "Kewl!" Watched the TOS original broadcast and became a fan for life. I think I'll spend some time trying to find other "geek" and "geek wannabe" places to visit. Love the Air and Space Museum at the Smithsonian. The Museum of Aviation in Warner Robins is always worth a visit. They have an SR-71 Blackbird on display and as far as I know the only museum that has one. You can see it briefly in the movie "Space Cowboys" where Tommy Lee Jones is chatting with his new girlfriend. Still a sweet bit of engineering it could cruise at Mach 3.2 at 85K feet. And it still looks like a space craft from the future. Did you know that bird could outfly a missile? More secrets of the SR-71 Blackbird.

RE: Recipe database software?

FYI Some scanners can adjust the scan parameters which might yield a clearer picture. Yep. The handwriting can be made darker digitally using features from the scanner or even photo mill.

RE: Recipe database software?

To save you from a lot of typing and errors I suggest scan and store them on a flash drive as jpeg images. Different folders for dish types and subfolders for main ingredient. Meaning you can have a soup folder, a chicken folder in that, and then chicken noodle soup and chicken tortilla soup recipes in that. Double ditto. Scanning them into a jpeg will also preserve her handwriting which makes it more personal and a tribute to her memory than simply typing them.

Campfire Breakfast

Tomorrow I'll be cooking a campfire breakfast in cast iron for visiting family. Steak Eggs Sauteed peppers and onions Grits Hot tea and coffee. The grits are really good when done over a wood-fueled campfire. The smoke flavors it up and when topped with butter they're lip-smacking. Can't wait.

RE: Coal-Rolling Teen Pickup Truck Driver Hits Six Cyclists

I've seen cyclists doing this deliberately in order to antagonize motorists. Not smart. It's like antagonizing a T-Rex. Glad you call them on it. Saw one incident where the cyclists hogging the lane abreast were flipping off the motorist behind them. The rest of us stuck behind these rude cyclists had the benefit of seeing them pulled over by cops after a couple of miles. Someone called LEOs on their cell. Don't think it will change much but if the clubs have these kinds of people in them they should think about revoking their membership. They should also require a course on local road laws and road courtesy.

RE: Homeless Cat -- Now Spotacus' Legacy

Good news to hear about Leoghaire. It looks like we're going to get some cold and snowy weather this winter according to the farmer almanacs. Might be another trip in the offing.

RE: Meatloaf

Definitely. Have made it in a cast iron dutch oven and it's definitely a favorite around here. Try it with some smoke introduced as described by OP. You may never go back. Already have. Left the lid off the DO to smoke it.
