So Mr. J was unable to find chicken legs at our local Co-op when doing shopping last week. And he forgot to move them to another stores list, so no chicken legs that I needed for dinner. 

But wait! The Recipe queen has pulled a fast one and came up with a substitute. He did get a couple packs of Boneless skinless thighs as they were a managers special and were being sold half off. I had just thrown them in the freezer to use at sometime. Also have an extra pack of bacon on hand and some chicken scratch... so came up with bacon wrapped chicken thighs for dinner tonight. It's like pantry raider meets the freezer! Stay tuned for my ad lib meal. :D

We're almost ready. As you know, this is a year unlike any other, and we've needed to fortify our compound.

Oh, we knew you must have been working on something good!  Just a little concerned is all, having heard nothing from the Reaper in so long!  Brilliant fortifications, to keep the extreme weenies out who might otherwise ruin the establishment!  I guess you have guards at the gate taking people's temperatures to make sure they'e OK to come in!

Of course, we will have guards to ensure strict compliance with social distancing mandates.

Is that from "Jason and the Argonauts" (or maybe I'm thinking of "Clash of the Titans)??  Great movie!

Buy a suite and get a discount on couples therapy.

Whoa!  The amenities of this place are just over the top!  Couples therapy for the distraught snow weenie looking at models every night while their significant other falls into depression due to lack of attention!  Looks like this guy fantasizes over 384-h GFS snowstorms more than the woman he's with!!:lol:  I think Dr. Bones will set him right!

Classy high-powered lawyers...love it!  I wonder if they'd do pro bone-o work for those who need counsel but don't have an unlimited bank account.

(Oh, I'm sorry, I put "classy" and "lawyer" in the same sentence, my bad!  No offense to any lawyers out there! :lol:)

If pfizer is required to submit its recipe for the vaccine as part of emergency use authorization, the US Government should have a lab on stand by to clone it and start manufacturing it immediately.  I am hearing stuff about "ethical distribution".. umm no.. we have the nukes.. we have the money.. we have the smartest scientists in the world.  That should be our vaccine.

Maybe it's been said but I mulch the leaves up with my riding mower.  Good for the soil and grass .

I'm leaving things messy this year.  I'll mulch or rake the leaves on the grass, but I'm leaving the leaves in my mulch beds.  Good habitat for overwintering insects.  Hopefully will also save me a bunch of money on lawn bags.

All of my leaves go into the garden every year. It starts out as 2-3’ pile of fluff, but by spring, it’s an inch of compost.

That’s gotta be great for your soil.

Just moved from Remington, VA to a new log home off of Harpers Ferry Road in western Loudoun.  Can someone recommend which Davis weather station is the best bang for the buck.  I wuld really appreciate it.

I have the Davis Vantage Vue but it is an older model. There was someone on here that got a new one recently that is everything contained in a cylinder housing. Forget what the name of it was. 

And I know the area you are in. I used to drive that stretch of road over from MD to get to Round Hill, VA until we moved my daughters pony south of Lovettesville.

Does anyone know what happened to Crankywxguy? He just called it quits for good on Twitter. It came out of nowhere. I hope it’s not something health related. He was definitely one of the better ones on social media, sad to see him go so suddenly

After some leaf removal, driveway fixing, and Jeep washing, time for a break. 

Double Duckpin DIPA is tasting mighty good.

Regretting getting the black Jeep.  It’s stays clean for about as long as our snow stays on the ground..for 20 minutes.  It’s an awesome 20 minutes but still.

I have had 3 black Jeeps- a Cherokee, GC Limited, and a GC  SRT8. Never again. You have to have a love of labor to own a black vehicle. Last 3 GCs have been silver or gray(including the Overland I have now). Won't own a vehicle that is any other color now.

Just spent the last half hour building a turtle platform. The younger Miss J has a 9" long Red Eared slider, got it from a friend who no longer could take care of it. Anyways she is a big turtle and her current set up was not working for baskin. Got a piece of plexi made some cuts, drilled some holes and she added some river rocks for traction. She is installing it now. Our house is a darn zoo!

Welcome! I have the VP2 and I love it. A bit pricey, but these things are an investment.

I've had my VP2 since 2011.  Works great.  The only problem is that once you have it, you want to keep enhancing it.  I added the wireless anemometer transmitter so I could mount it on the roof, the UV sensor, and then the Ambient Weather Weatherbridge so that putting the data on the internet is easy.

That’s quite the car collection.  The SRT8 looks amazing in black.  I have a wrangler JL.  Also amazing in black.  It’s a saharacon.  I put Rubicon rims on it and rockrails.  It’a a good look.

Nice!

I also had a gray srt8. I have bought 2 new cars ever, and leased one. Other than that, my usual strategy is buy a 2-3 yo vehicle, keep it 2-3 years, rinse and repeat. Best bang for the buck. I have owned a lot of vehicles lol. Only Jeeps for the last 20 years.
