    recipes -- only

    Can anyone recommend a specific chili powder they like? I have a chili recipe that calls for "light" and "dark" chili powder and most of what I can find locally is all your basic chili powder. Not that the chili tastes bad but I'd like to develop a more complex flavor if possible.

    What are you watching?

    I have to admit one guilty pleasure: I have watched all seven seasons of "Arrow" based on the DC Comics character of the Green Arrow. It's been harder to watch after season 4 but I have to admit I've loved it overall. The female lead (Emily Bett Rickards) was written off the show after seven...

    Memorial Day...Lest we Forget

    Thank you all for your service. Thank you also to all those heroes who've died rushing into the danger here at home. I have seen the "Grave of the Unknown" at Arlington. I have also seen it in Athens, Greece. Yes, the wars and people are different but it is a very solemn ceremony that's a cross...

    Goodbye Forever, Microsoft

    Coach- I used to build my own gaming PCs and got tired of all of the problems I would get even though I was meticulous about updates, antivirus, antimalware and disk cleaning/defrag. I bought my first Mac in 2008 (a desktop) and it had minor needs. Until two years ago all we did was replace...

    +1 LOVED this show. Some minor quibbles but overall very well done. This is fantastic. Tom Nichols, who has a background in Soviet affairs was remarking on Twitter how much they've gotten the little details right. Yeah, they could have made Eastern Europe and the Bosphorus uninhabitable. I...

    Tim Conway has died

    My dad used to let me try to stay up to watch The Carol Burnett Show and when I was really little I would always fall asleep. So much comedic talent on that show. Real talent. Tim Conway especially. I remember so many laugh-so-hard-your-diaphragm-spasms laughters.

    GoT Final Season

    I don't honestly have a problem with the ending, just the journey as others have said. I feel like several seasons worth of character development on Jaime and, to some degree, Arya were just nullified. So, Arya became some badass assassin to do what exactly? I will grant her the Night King but...

    GoT Final Season

    I thought, overall, it was very good. The sense of chaos and Dany bringing her badass self to bear was great. I had a real problem with Cersei's demise though. We spend 7+ seasons hating her ass and everyone and their dragon is after her...and she meets THAT end? Really? Seriously? Tywin on...

    GoT Final Season

    Said this on Twitter but damn... Brienne goes from virgin to getting the "it's not you, it's me" from Jaime? All in 10 minutes?! My girl Khaleesi gonna mess up somebody's day next week...

    GoT Final Season

    Thank you. I can't be the only one who was disappointed in the singular/unimaginative tactics of the Unsullied in the most recent episode. I mean they're supposedly a great army and all they can do is act as a speed bump with a spear? Don't even get me started on the woman who lit up my...

    GoT Final Season

    The first part is generally the consensus amongst my friends. It's a different show since they've moved past the books. Perhaps less macabre and perhaps little details are not nearly as important. It used to be the dialogue was very well-written and the cut scenes were also different. We forget...

    GoT Final Season

    My 2-cents-that-may-only-interest-me: I will vote "like" on the premiere. I think that's only because I have grown to expect that the premieres on this show are slow-paced and methodical, trying to lay ground work. That means that they aren't always exciting. Since they've killed off a lot of...

    His scenes where he's making eyes at Brienne are awesome!

    GoT Final Season

    Love the show. Watching since day one. Have any of you seen the show "Bodyguard" on Netflix? It's a British show starring none other than Richard Madden who played Robb Stark in GoT. He's basically a secret service type agent for the Home Secretary. OK. Favorite characters? 1. Khaleesi 2...
