I love this place. :)
But the true meaning of Christmas is HAM, so this weekend I will finally be cooking our Christmas Ham.
And I'm always on the lookout for any kind of Kosher pork product. :P
Hey, come on up to visit this weekend and we'll have some Kosher Cham. I'm thinking of making latkes with it just to up the irony. (We upped our irony ... up yours!)
Shiny is good. Easy cleanup is better! Pop the grates, wipe down, and shine on you crazy oven! :)
French toast for the whole family this morning. The big burner kept my oval-shaped griddle evenly heated.
I have no problem with religious humor -at least not at that level.
I won't be coming over for ham or cham though... If you drop by here, I wouldn't mind making a batch of latkes with you.
Looks like I've got a lot of work to do after the spring thaw.
That's some heavy ice, IG. Mine are just...encased in the ice like that 5,000 yr old mammoth they dug up a few years back.
What I don't get is what gutters are for. The only purpose they serve is to create ice dams in the winter.
If you had no gutters, the water would pour off the roof in a row where you could lay a drain in the ground that was easy to clean and maintain.
Instead you have to climb up on your roof all the time to clean gutters of leaves and what not.
Lemme guess: by having gutters, all the rain that falls on your roof is led neatly to a drain somewhere so it doesn't have to fall off the edge of the roof.
Well to that I say: but if you're not under your roof, you're getting rained on anyway, so what's a little more water?
It is NOT worth the constant gutter cleaning and risk of ice dams which in my case have caused backlogging and flooding in my house.
I had something like that happen. Where the master bath is in my house, there's a small section of roof that's raised up, similar to a dormer. There are no gutters on that section, and the builder neglected to install the proper flashing where it meets the main roofline. With all the downpours we get here in NC, the water was flowing down the seam, and instead of flowing down the roof, it clung to the fascia on the underside of the dormer and rotted the wood.
Ford, gutters are also intended to help by redirecting the water flow to an area that is (supposed to be) sloped away from the house so that the water flows away from the foundation instead of falling directly next to it (and thus often causing leakage into the foundation and/or basement).
fell off the roof used to be a euphemism for getting one's period.
Sorry to hear your gutter is menstruating.
interesting.. the idioms in AE rather go into obfuscating stuff, while german idoms rather go into the direction to make fun out of something... like...
calling a Lawyer "Miet-Maul" aka rent a jaw [replace by some apropriate vulgar word for mouth]
having a big beer apetite "unterhopft" under -hop-ed (hop - the plant you make beer of)
and, IG... as long as theres snow around, you don't need to replace that ;-)
