    Yeah, that was pretty much it for the day. I did have a salad later last night but it wasn't very good because we didn't have any peppers.

    Lunch.....fit for a king! Roast beef commercial with left over beef roast. Just thought I'd share.

    No, but this is what I would get if I was there.

    Hall of Fame? You must be joking...... Every player starts out like that. No one starts out with a 23 m dollar contract. He still averaged about 15 million per year for his career, that average probably goes up if he plays past 2018. I think he will be ok.
  5. Joe Mauer

    Great! He is finally earning a contract close to what he is being paid.

    Or, how about these?: http://www.homedepot.com/p/Mr-Bar-B-Q-7-lb-Lava-Rock-05002/100331664

    Is it the same Lava rock as they use for landscaping? If so, you can get it a lot cheaper at a landscape supply or home improvement store. Not sure if the stuff you are talking about is different in any way though.... https://www.menards.com/main/building-materials/landscaping-materials/ground-cover-materials/red-lava-rock-1-0-cu-ft/p-1444452017874.htm

    Sam Bradford Puts Teddy Bridgewater On the Trade Block by Erik Lambert1 day agoFollow @ErikLambert1 TWEET SHARE x COMMENT For a moment in time it looked like the Minnesota Vikings might have a quarterback controversy developing on their roster. Sam Bradford finished 2016 strong, completing over 70% of his passes. This was made interesting by the accelerated return of Teddy Bridgewater from his catastrophic knee injury last year. Rumors persist he’s regaining his old form in practice. It remained to be seen whether Bradford might open the door for him to get the starting job back. On Monday night against the Saints, it feels like that door shut. Granted New Orleans isn’t exactly the greatest measuring stick given their history of putrid defensive play. Nonetheless Bradford has picked up right where he left off. Barring a huge meltdown in the coming weeks, it looks like that job belongs to him. Permanently. Thus the Vikings are faced with a curious decision. What do they do about Bridgewater? Advertisement ProNourish™ Drink for People with Digestive Sensitivities Formulated to avoid ingredients that may trigger digestive discomfort Ad by ProNourish™ Twitter Ads info and privacy He is now in the final year of his rookie contract. The knee injury prevented them from exercising his 5th year option so they could control him for anther. This put Minnesota in a tricky spot. Do they try to hang onto him with the franchise tag? Do they let him walk as a free agent or do they try to trade him? That last part sounds like something Rick Spielman would definitely try to explore. Bridgewater is still young and there’s no reason to think he can’t be effective provided that knee is close to 100%. One would think there’s a team in the league that would be willing to chance it, provided the price is reasonable. Given how desperate teams are for quarterbacks these days, there’s no reason to think the Vikings can’t get a decent pick back for him prior to the trade deadline this November. Keep it in mind, especially if Bradford continues to play well.

    You mean take money out of the hands of hard working American workers? Nah, wouldn't dream of it.

    Anyone here switch from an ATV to a UTV? I have a Kodiak 400 that I have had since about 2002 and usually only use it on trails a few times a year at most. I used to use it to plow snow also but my plow broke and I haven't replaced it. Might use it for ice fishing once in a while too but not very often anymore. We now have a friend that has a cabin in the Outing area so we make it up there a little more often to do some riding. My wife has decided she would like to ride but is not very fond of riding on the back of my little Kodiak 400. We were looking hard at either a Polaris or Arctic Cat 2-up ATV but now I started looking more seriously at a side by side. I think a side by side would probably do all the things we need it to do. When trail riding with my wife we do not ride hard. She likes to go slow and see the scenery. It would also work well for plowing if I decide to do that and ice fishing, especially if I add a cab and a heater! Anyone else here make the switch? If so, how do you like it? Would you do it again? I'll be keeping the old Kodiak but for the most part it will be for my son to ride.

    Thanks @rl_sd, but we are looking for a dedicated 2-up machine. This is just a regular machine with an added box seat in the back.

    Looks like the sxs will not be for us. We did a weekend of trail riding up north over labor day and I kept in mind what each section of trail would have been like with a sxs. It probably wouldn't have worked very well. Looks like we are back to thinking about a 2-up instead. Probably one of these 2:

    @RebelSS, Here's another DIY project for you...
  23. Caulk in a ceramic shower

    I've worked for one contractor and have watched several more work and every one of them smooths out caulk. As far as I know it is the preferred way to apply. If stickiness is a problem you can try spritzing it with denatured alcohol right before smoothing.

    Kitchen faucet in the camper is leaking so I think I'm just going to order a new one.
