  1. That is a seriously nice rig. I was shopping/not shopping online for exactly that model trailer just last week. My wife and I have a (pipe)dream of retiring to a full-time RV. I don't expect we will truly ever do it, but I love seeing that y'all took the plunge.
  2. This is a great idea, thanks! The only problem I've had with the clips I bought is that the wired probe sometimes hangs too low in the dome, as you say. Excellent solution.
  3. I admire the ingenuity behind this, but I agree with others that it's probably not something I'd buy. I don't find cleaning the grates to be difficult or time-consuming. I do the aforementioned foil ball method using tongs when the grill is hot, and it only takes a minute or two at the outside; probably more along the lines of 30 or 40 seconds. Alternatively, I will occasionally --VERY occasionally-- soak them in soapy water for a couple hours and then spray them off with the hose. Either way, it's just not such a big job that I'd spend money to get out of doing it.
  4. That's one good-looking ride. Enjoy.
  5. My wife and I passed our 14-day post-vaccine date this past Friday, and had another vaccinated couple over for dinner on Saturday. First time anyone other than ourselves had been in our house since Jan. 4, 2020. It was very strange and simultaneously familiar. Perfectly normal to sit around and visit, and yet every few minutes one of another of us would say something like, "Can you believe we're all sitting here in the same room?!?!"
  6. Before posting this, I want to clearly state that I'm not advocating for (or against) the Impossible meats. I don't know nearly enough about it to have an informed opinion one way or another, other than my previous statements to the effect that I thought the burgers tasted good. But I listen every week to this podcast, and when this week's episode came up I thought about this thread. So, for anyone who might be interested:
  7. This was an interesting read. Thanks for posting.
  8. I can tell you from experience it is not any harder than keeping two small dogs. More expensive? Yes. But harder? No.
  9. We have quite a few vegetarian/vegan friends, and I don't think a single one of them has a diet any more healthy than mine. And I doubt any of them would argue with that assessment. With regards to the "impossible" meats, though, I do notice that they (our veggie friends) seem to fall into two distinct categories: About half of them are always looking for some kind of meat substitute. I think of them as reluctant vegetarians. For various reasons they don't want to eat real meat, but they miss it badly and are always trying to compensate for the loss. The other half have absolutely no interest
  10. I read the weather report Saturday morning and saw that it was going to be excellent sit-outside weather on Sunday, so I figured I might as well do that sitting by the grill. Thawed out some Costco ribs, and spent a nice Sunday afternoon in the sunshine. Rubbed & ready Goin' in Ready to wrap Dinner's ready Plated (Sorry, I took a little bite of corn before I remembered to take a pic. Haha.)
  11. After years of using whatever rattledy-trap tables I could scavenge for myself, I finally ordered one of these last year: https://www.wayfair.com/Amgood--Stainless-Steel-Work-Table-with-Undershelf-AMG-WT2436-L7388-K~AMGO1000.html?refid=GX452984696849-AMGO1000_49453606&device=c&ptid=898360269291&network=g&targetid=pla-898360269291&channel=GooglePLA&ireid=112169817&fdid=1817&PiID[]=49453606&gclid=CjwKCAiA4rGCBhAQEiwAelVtizNAy5x80poW8cubF2dF-iAK9-V_INb_VvX1_sHxhnxz6F1lTRidohoCgTUQAvD_BwE Love it.
  12. I got mine (last Friday) not for being an old geezer, but for being a fat geezer. Second dose coming on the 26th.
  13. One of our local pubs has started offering an Impossible burger. My wife and I tried it out of curiosity, and I am quite sure if someone had served it to me without telling me, I would never have known it was not beef. Absolutely delicious. I personally have no particular interest in the health aspects of it. (If that was a concern I wouldn't be ordering a burger & fries in the first place.) But from what little I've read about it --and admittedly that is VERY little-- I have not seen anyone claiming any health benefits. It seems to me that the main thrust of the argument in fa
  14. After ~30” of snow last week, another 3” on Super Bowl Sunday, and an inch & a half more this morning, with only a little bit of melt in between, I haven’t seen any sign if the little guy for days.
