Charlie Daniels Band, you all picked all the rock bands, but heck the 70s had some awesome country music

Comment 07 Oct 2015

This is a win/win situation.  Too bad they both can't lose, but regardless of the winner I can still enjoy the tears of the loser.  These games are fun to watch.

Expectations....sometimes just kill the fun.  Found this quote online and think it's very appropriate.  Time to forget those preseason expectations. 

Comment 05 Oct 2015

So you're saying the team is backing JT more than Cardale....just wow.   If true this team is not going to win any championship,  BIG, playoff or national.  You've heard the term "divide and conquer", well a team divided will be conquered sooner or later.  You'd all better hope there's no spit in the locker room or anywhere.

Ok so I spewed coffee on the one!  uv to you and many more!

Man do I agree with you Alwaysbrutus, it sure doesn't help when the site repeatedly asks the same poll question over and over, just gives the haters more ammo IMO and leads to more whining threads on the forum.  I actually missed the poll this morning until you so kindly pointed it out.  I guess I should just come read DJ's posts and skip the rest and I'll be way happier.

Agreed, just had to add that this year it's some of our fans writing us off not just the media.  Look no farther than the question on the front page, and HELL Yes we're still #1.  I almost lost it when I saw more voters picking other.   I mean have we lost a game?  What am I missing that so many Buckeye fans think that poorly of their team?  I don't understand it.

Rant on, I just got bits and pieces of the game live but I taped it and have been rewatching it.  Had to laugh at their explaination of the IU player who was clearly out of bounds but came back in bounds to recover that fumble.  Not that I expected us to win that one but the mumbo jumbo out of the booth that he was out of bounds but his knee wasn't down until he recovered the fumble.  Say what?  OTOH what was up with Marshall today?  I agree the call on Braxton was BS, and from that point on I expected it to be a rough day.  Just catching bits and pieces probably kept me sane today.

Thanks for caring so much and fostering.  I'm afraid I would be a foster failure.  I wish I could give you more than one upvote.  I cannot imagine 41 cats, that's a bunch for sure.

1 Pom, I was looking for a GSD, and ended up with Ozzie.  My other dog is a rescued pit bull mix, Thor along with one cat, gray, of course, named Zeus.  Thor is a lap dog, the pom thinks he's boss.  Thor usually plays along with that unless food is involved.   Zeus rules from his cat roost and just stays above it all.

Before I clicked on this thread, I had just read through Mike's thread a second time and I found it very touching that so many had offered advice, personal experiences and support.  Feels good to be part of such an awesome group of Buckeyes.

First of all, there is no reason to hang your head, it's the way business operates these days.  

Second it sounds like the medical benefits are important but would the same benefits be available at the 25% cut in pay.  I have no idea what benefits cost these days since I'm retired and have medicare.  But back in the day it was almost $800 a month for a family benefit before I went full time in a state job.  Insurance is a necessity.  Figure out if you can pay for a private policy or it staying with this company at a 25% cut in pay is worth it for the 5 years before you can retire.  

Also is it possible for your wife to work and get her own insurance policy?  If her health is an issue for a job then maybe see about a disability and that money could be used to pay for her insurance?   

Can you handle staying with this company for 5 more years?  

Would the severance package become null and void if the other job didn't work out?

I'm just not kewl with the black and white garters?  But I can embrace the black cat.

Just wanted to add you can cook the spaghetti squash in the microwave.  Just cut it in half, put it in a glass dish upside down, add about an inch of water and cook on high 10 to 20 minutes.  Cooking time depends on size of squash.  You know it's cooked when you can stick a fork in it.  Heck yeah it's good with spaghetti sauce and I have to try Bags recipe.

One more, I like to make these on game days.  

Sloppy Joes

2 lbs lean Ground Beef 
1 chopped onion med size  

1 med size green pepper also chopped
1 (16 ounce) can tomato sauce 

1/2 cup ketchup
2 tablespoons brown sugar or more or less to taste.  
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar don't add the vinegar if you aren't adding the brown sugar.  

brown the ground meat and pour off the fat.  add ingredients and cook slow.  Longer this cooks better it tastes.  2nd day is better usually than the first day so I like to make extra.  Also good as a coney recipe.  It's also possible to make this with ground chicken or turkey as a healthier alternative to ground beef.  I've never made it that way so I can't say if its good that way or not just that it's healthier.

San Francisco Pork Chops in a slow cooker

Stumbled across this recipe a couple of years ago.  Since it's cooked in a slow cooker its fairly easy, just brown the meat first.  I've used this same recipe for cooking roast beef as well as a larger pork roast.  I also usually just use garlic from my spice rack since I rarely have fresh on hand.  


2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
4 pork chops, about 1-inch thick
Salt and pepper for seasoning
2 cloves garlic, finely minced
1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
1/4 cup low-sodium chicken broth
2 tablespoons packed light brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1 tablespoon cold water
Hot Cooked Rice, for serving
