I got my cpap about 6 months ago and use it every night. About a week ago, I went to bed and was really stuffed up from a cold, so I couldn't wear my cpap. I didn't realize what a night of stopping breathing was like, but I could not function the next day. I guess when you stop breathing about ever 1.2 minutes it has a negative effect. who knew?

CPAP brother. Impressive that you got used to it so fast, it took me a very long time to be comfortable sleeping with it. I don't sleep without it now, not even naps. Sleeping through the night is a beautiful thing, eh?

I got used to it in about a week. I think the fact that my schedule puts me in bed at about 11 and up again at 5 probably helped me adjust. Just too drat tired to wake up.

I'm in the market for an enamelled cast iron dutch oven. Amazon has the lodge 6 quart bad-boy for $50. The 7.5 quart one is $75. Is it worth the extra $25 for the added capacity, or will 6qt do the trick for most applications?

I'm missing why you want enameled, though, instead of just cast iron?

Its my understanding, and please correct me if I'm wrong, but if I plan on doing a lot of tomato based, or heavily acidic dishes, that enameled is the better option?

Well, I didn't mean to light that fuse.

So I think for my dutch oven needs, I'll be looking at a regular cast iron job instead of enameled.

And just for the sake of argument, I use my copper clad pans when I need to vary temperatures during the cooking process. For example, if I'm searing meat, then sweating aromatics in the pan, then reducing a pan sauce.

I use my cast iron skillet if I'm doing something that requires only one temp, like making sawmill gravy or cooking a steak.

Homewood Suites definitely. I mean you have Home...so its bound to be homey. You have wood, which means easy access to whores, and you have Suites, which means you can keep the hooker gagged and bound in a different room while you're masturbating to the teletubbies.

I don't have any restaurant recommendations for Bangor, sadly, but the last time I was there (about 15 years ago), when driving by McDonalds, they were advertising a McLobster roll. Sometimes I regret not getting one.

I stopped at a little shack on the roadside that sold fresh seafood and boiled lobsters, lobster rolls, etc. I don't even know if it had a name, but by god it was delicious food.

Picture a tuna salad sandwich, but with chunks of lobster meat, a tiny bit of mayo, some chopped green onion, chopped celery, and a dash of tobasco on a buttered, toasted roll.

They can be very delicious if done properly.

I have a mysterious throat ailment, one of the possible causes is acid related and if I can solve it this way I may avoid basically having my throat roto-rootered. I'm hoping to god it's not permanent.

If its acid errosion of your throat it is semi-permanent. First, you'll be given the option to have the throat stretching done under a local or a general anesthesia. The correct answer here is general every time. They'll say "Lets try it with local first" to which you answer "No loving way"

The time between stretchings varies, but is usually between every 6 months to every couple years.

Expect about a day for recovery time.

Cake Flour is lower in one of the proteins that makes gluten, so if you use cake flour, you can mix more than you would with AP flour. Its also milled finer, so it hydrates more quickly.

loving GOONS AND CAST IRON I SWEAR TO GOD

Its a tool just like any other tool. I would never bash anyone for having a sentimental attachment to something handed down from their family. I'd love to have something that belonged to my mother that I could associate with my memories of her. Cast iron has that kind of longevity, so its natural that people would be sentimental.

As far as functionality, its a good pan for some things and not for others. No one piece of cookware is the be-all end-all of every recipe. There are things I prefer my cast iron skillet for (pineapple upside down cake, corn bread) over my copper stuff.

To completely dismiss it as a tool because a general consensus of people in a group like it is just as goony and spergy as anything else.

Seriously, titty-loving looks uninteresting. Now I cannot attest to that fact myself, since none of my previous lovers has had boobs which were long enough to actually wrap around my junk. I am having hopes from my wife though, as gravity seems to gradually elongate them. We may get there when she's 60 at the rate they're approaching her waistline.

Also, a question, is then and than interchangeable?

I'm not gonna question what any two consenting adults do in their bedrooms. If you both enjoy it, then go for it.

No, they are not interchangeable. "Then" indicates the next in order as a function of time. "I ate my entree, then I had my dessert"

"Than" is a conjucntional particle that usually accompanies a comparison. "My entree was better than my dessert"

Phummus

Affect and Effect are not interchangeable.

Affect (a verb) means 'to influence' "The shaved truffle affected the taste of my pasta dish"

Effect (a noun) means ... hmmm ... an outcome. "I didn't use enough oil in the pan, the effect was that my scallops stuck"

A split infinitive is typically when you have an adverb (it ends in 'ly') after the word 'to'. The classic example is "To boldly go where no man has gone before". It really should be "To go boldly where no man has gone before" to be correct.

A dangling participle just means that the subject of a participle (usually ending in ING) is not evident. "Wishing I could cook, the broken oven taunted me" is a dangling participle, because the "wishing" applies to me, but the only subject in the sentence. "Wishing I could cook, I cursed at the broken oven" is correct.

I'll do pics when I make it. I'll do the soak tonight and the hummus tomorrow night as long as nothing goes haywire in the ol' domestic life.

My plan is to soak 1 cup of dry, cook them (which should yield about 3 cups cooked), put them in the food processor with 1 or 2 cloves of garlic, around 2 Tablespoons of tahini, and the juice of a lemon and spin them up. Then I'll drizzle in extra virgin olive oil until I get the consistency I want. Should I expect the final product to firm up in the refrigerator a bit because there's several different kinds of fat in there?

When I roast garlic, I cut the top of the head off, drizzle with a bit of olive oil, wrap in foil and throw it in the oven for an hour or so at 350. You mentioned using the oil that you simmer the garlic in. Can you describe your garlic roasting technique as well? I would think prolonged exposure to heat would reduce the fruitiness of a good olive oil.

Chick Fil A's owners are very conservative christian types and financially support groups like "Focus on the Family", etc. Some college kids with nothing better to do decided to hand out flyers at NYU stating that the company as a whole will want to know about your sexual orientation if you apply for a job there.
