My interesting vacation

48 posts in this topic

Where did you go DeeDee? I read in the photo forum that you and your 6 y.o. were jet skiing?? grin FUN!

I had a very interesting vacation. 1) I learned not to drink BEFOR going into the casino, 2) I learned to ALWAYS hold on to the jetski when a 6 yr old is driving, and 3) I learned what NOT to do when puttin the boat in the river! Not even going to talk about #1 sick #2 My husband and youngest son (Angelo) sprayed us with the jet ski just as Nicolas hit a wave went airborn gunned it and threw me off the back of the ski blush And #3 well, lets just say I'll pay more attention next time. cry

Lisa - It did hurt quite a bit, but once the rain stopped we had a great time.

Hammer - you and everyone else will probably think I'm a dumba-- for doing but ever get in a big hurry and not really think about what your doing? Well thats what happens when you losen the strap from inside the boat, the boat falls, crank slips out of hand and WHACKS arm. blush

I think everyone's been there DeeDee. I know I've had a bruse or two from that. Thing it, is usually only happens once cause it's a painful lesson to learn.

Don't feel dumb. Most people just won't share their stories like us DeeDee! laugh

I can imagine that was followed by a few words that would trigger the word filter on the forum here blush Ouch that hadda hurt shocked

And don't feel stupid...the only ones of us that hasn't done something of that nature are the ones who sit home all the time watching the boober tube. All it takes is for the brain to slip into neutral for a second or two and the what the h***, son of a b%%%%% or worse usually follows grin

That avatar is enough to trigger an epileptic fit. Just kidding, does this mean it is time for me to ditch mine for a new one? I haven't caught any bragging fish to put up yet. Maybe this weekend.

About a month ago, my father-in-law was cutting some boards with a circular saw. He had one small piece left to cut...and held it in on hand and cut with the other (not smart...and he knew it wasn't). Well, the saw grabbed and pulled his fingers into the saw...cutting two ends of his fingers off. They are growing back...but what a way to learn.

Me, well...let's see. Cutting wood and in a hurry...and I poured bar oil into the gas tank and added gas to the oil. Caught myself when putting the caps on.

Also this last month, grabbed a bad electrical cord and got shocked. Thought...did that really happen?...and grabbed it again. Yep, bad cord.

Can't think of anything else right now...at least not that happened lately.

Oh jeez, Hammer Handle, that's just crazy about the cords!! Live and learn right?

I tried cracking the seal on a juice bottle with a paring knife and ended up in surgery repairing a nerve and getting sewn back up! The scar looks like a thick, extra lifeline on my palm....it was soooo gross and stupid! I was casted for 12 weeks since palms don't heal up very fast!

    • I was fortunate to see a tanager, blue-winged warbler, and a couple of young cranes all in one morning  on a walk in a park this week.       
    •   You will get plenty of recipes for a brine or injection, or even an injectable brine which work good for turkey breasts.  A common injection are the store bought ones you see in sporting goods stores in the cooking section. All kinds of flavors from Cajun, to Honey Butter, Garlic & Herbs, etc. Some even come with a free syringe.  Some simple injections you can make are apple juice (plain or jazzed up), beer with seasonings, a doctored up chicken broth and one of my favorites a Lite Apple Brine.  Since it's injected I like lower salt than you would use for an immersion brine.  My Lite Apple Brine's ratio is 1 gram of canning salt mixed into 1 ounce of apple juice.  If you buy an 8oz bottle of apple juice, just add 8 grams of canning salt, shake it and you are ready to inject.     Years ago I asked Old Dave, an online friend, for help on an injection for a pastramied turkey breast recipe I was developing.  He sent me a modified version of Shakes Injectable Brine, which is fancier than my Lite Apple Brine.... and guess what, I really like it too.  Here is the recipe... and if you want to read more, I'll have the link to my write-up below.  BTW, I was skeptical of the cloves, but I tried the first one following the recipe and it's good.  My only variation is I'll use agave nectar instead of the honey sometimes.    Old Dave's Poultry Injectable Brine, based off of "Shakes" Injectable Brine. 
      32oz clean water (non-chlorinated and not softened)
      1/4 cup pickling salt
      2 teaspoons of TenderQuick
      1/3 cup clover honey
      3-4 bay leaves
      1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
      1/2 teaspoon pickle spice

      Heat it up in a sauce pan but do not boil. For a 12-15 pound turkey, inject 2 oz in each leg, 2 oz in each thigh, and 4 oz in each side of the breast. 16 oz total per turkey. I like to do the injection at least 8-10 hours before the fire.   My Pastramied Turkey Breast write-up can be found HERE   EDIT, you smoke them until the internal is 165° to 170°.  An injection will help keep them moist even at the 170° temp.  I like a mix of cherry and hickory, but keep the amount gentle.  Apple would be a safe bet for your first one and you can always use a stronger wood next time.  
    • First off, the comment I made which you replied to with a hypothesis never stated that there was proof they did anything wrong. I merely and accurately stated that there was a chance they did some of the same things and it appears that may be the case.   You said plainly that VW could have chosen the Daimler tech but chose not to. In the end doing so may very well have found them in the same boat.    
    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
