Haha, looked up "Pennsyltucky" on wiki -- that is a large area...

Here's the classic description of PA: "Philadelphia in the east, Pittsburgh in the west and Alabama in the middle." It looks like a more acceptable term for this is "the T," from the shape of the remaining area outside those two cities.

I used to live in PA with lots of rural places. Where in PA? I noticed my old nest has Verizon FIOS now! Argh.

Nowhere. Or as they call it Pennsyltucky. And no, they don't have FiOS there.

Hey Blue, how's the Gunnar-man like this sort of snowfall?

He likes the snow fine, and doesn't seem to suffer the cold that badly. He is sensitive to the salt on the roads, so he's been wearing booties on our walks lately. But with them he's good to go. The only thing is he is willing to eat filthy snow off the curb, so I have to keep tabs on that while we walk.

My previous car's windshield was a chip and crack magnet. Must have been something about the design that made windshield strikes more likely to crack it, maybe the angle. And $60 is pretty cheap to replace a windshield, at least around here, so at least you have that going for you.

I believe that's the price to repair the crack. The insurance company says they will cover replacing the windshield if it comes to that.

I have also seen the Urgent Chrome Update redirect on bluesnews. Thanks for thoroughly reporting it.

Apologies for the rogue ad.

I got an email on this as well, and it's been reported to the ad folks. I presume that it will go away quickly, as they are generally good about keeping these things out to start with, and respond immediately when something slips through.

Sorry Blue, Eli couldn't do it again.

In fairness, Eli played really well. The receiving corps dropped enough passes to fill a party boat.

Or one could, you know, boil water in a stainless or glass kettle on the stove.

Of course the stove still works. But these kettles are far faster and more energy efficient than using the stove. You get spoiled by the speed pretty quickly.

If Stainless Steel is Stainless, Why Does it Rust?

I'm always amazed when people are amazed at rusty stainless steel.

And why didn't you just get a glass kettle instead? I have the Hamilton-Beach 1.7 litre kettle myself and it works like a champ. No plastic to worry about. And the blue LEDs look cool.

This is the first answered question about your kettle on Amazon:

The jar is not totally made of glass. I bought the kettle after reading these answers and wondered how the glass jar is attached to the stainless steel heating element. There is some kind of plastic (maybe silicone?) part that holds that glass jar and the heating element together and also acts as a sealant. I opened the lid after emptying the hot water (while the pot was still hot) and got a whiff of a very strong plastic odor. I'm pretty certain that the plastic part is being heated to high temperatures. My pot is going back.

There seems to be no option to do it in the website, how should I go about deleting my account from BluesNews? Thanks.

We don't actually have an account deletion function. Sorry about that (and sorry you want to leave). If you want to invalidate your account, you can delete any or all of your posting history, and/or change your account details to something that doesn't link back to you. We don't retain old account info, and this will effectively divorce you from your history here.

Hope that suffices.

Also things move around (perhaps randomly) each time you load it so the presented list here is incorrect/not revealed.

The list of the 12 "platinum" titles is the same if you reload. As I noted, they do not seem to be in any particular order, and the order changes on return viewings.

Good article about Anachronox. The link here is wrong though (it updates itself when you scroll down the page), here's the right one: https://www.gamestm.co.uk/features/behind-the-scenes-of-anachronox/

Oops, thanks. I actually noticed the SEO line in the URL didn't match the article, but I assumed it was just weirdness on their end.

I fixed the URL now.

You're a giant PoS. Stop killing people already.

Can you imagine how the son/brother and granddaughter feel? Holy hell...

Sort of... my mom died two weeks after my grandmother. A bit of a reverse of this in case I imagine. For my mom, I think no longer being responsible for a nonagenarian parent made it easier for her to leave (she'd had cancer for years), while for Debbie, losing her daughter made it harder for her to stay.

It's sad losing a parent, but that's the natural order of things. The loss of a child is hard to imagine. I think if my mom died first, her mom would have gone right away as well, despite being someone not given to displays of personal emotion.

Sorry for your loss nin.

Thanks. W/o getting preachy, I think she'd be ok with me saying she smoked from the age of 14, and (in her 60s) she went from diagnosis to death in under a month.

Don't smoke, kids.

I want to echo that good advice. My dad was a heavy smoker at one point, and he was dead very shortly after his lung cancer diagnosis as well.

CUT has been destroyed in the reviews. Eater, who I kind of hate, said everything sucked (basically their phrasing, too, part of why I hate them.) Pete Wells said the ambiance was awful and the food was mostly just pretty good and way overpriced, but the steak was excellent.

Look at that. I guess I could be a restaurant critic.

Did you go for the Prime, Japanese Wagyu, Angus or American Wagyu.

Just the prime. That was more than expensive enough. I had a rib eye and it was out of this world. Among the best I've ever had.

Ok so ya mentioned the bathrobe yesterday Blue, and the snow today.
Due to army of Shelf Elfs we snuck out and got a picture of you.

Don't go puttin' none of that stuff on my sled, Clark. You know that metal plate in my head? I had to have it replaced, cause every time Catherine revved up the microwave I'd piss my pants and forget who I was for a half hour or so. So over at the VA they had to replace it with plastic. It ain't as strong so I don't know if I should go sailin down no hill with nothing between the ground and my brains but a piece of government plastic.
