RE: Does anyone watch the Academy Awards...

I have not watched in years. With DH sick with the flu, I decided to put them on, just too see if I have missed anything in the last 10-15 years or so. A resounding NOPE! They are exactly what they used to be. Very rich people giving each other a pat on the back, while using the stage to pass on their own political / activist views. The 2 highlights were JK Simmons speech about calling Mom/Dad and Lady Gaga singing the Sound of Music. Other than that, I could have watched something / ANYTHING else!!

RE: Valentine's Day Prime Rib

My wife suggested that we stay in tonight to avoid the madness at restaurants, so, I've seasoned a small prime rib that I had in the freezer. http://i40.photobucket.com/albums/e204/dave_rce1/PrimeRib1_zps8f6bba62.jpg Fresh green beans and twice baked potatoes will round out the main meal. I stopped by the bakery yesterday and got a piece of Tuxedo cake for us to share for dessert. Working on the taters while the PR is doing its thing. http://i40.photobucket.com/albums/e204/dave_rce1/BP1_zpsd1df8f48.jpg http://i40.photobucket.com/albums/e204/dave_rce1/BP2_zpsabe71fb5.jpg http://i40.photobucket.com/albums/e204/dave_rce1/BP3_zpsc2f1ab98.jpg Baked, mashed and smoked http://i40.photobucket.com/albums/e204/dave_rce1/BP4_zps1e767475.jpg Finish pictures and think they might speak for themselves: Meat: http://i40.photobucket.com/albums/e204/dave_rce1/PR2_zps2770ca4d.jpg Separate rib plate from roast http://i40.photobucket.com/albums/e204/dave_rce1/PR3_zps493f3f4e.jpg http://i40.photobucket.com/albums/e204/dave_rce1/PR4_zps8adc1148.jpg http://i40.photobucket.com/albums/e204/dave_rce1/PR5_zpsf7493979.jpg Dave and his food porn again!!

RE: Do you RV without your significant other?

we belong to a desert riding group who goes out usually at least once month. I do not work on Fridays and like to get out ahead of the So Cal traffic. Sometimes I leave either Thurs night or Fri morning and drive the moho with the trailer and my DH will meet me out there Fri night. I love my alone night(s)!! During New years week, I usually go out for the week and DH doesn't get the same amount of time off, so I will stay for 3 or 4 days by myself - again, I love it!!

RE: Pulled pork for large group

When we had the kiddo football team over for pool parties, pulled pork was an easy way for me to go ... I used the roaster oven, bought meat from costco. Season to your liking, cook, pour off juice, add bbq sauce. Easy peasy.

RE: Beer chicken three alarm blast

Did you roast the legs with the butter/sauce on them? That's a no-no. You should put the wings in without the sauce on it and then, drench them in the butter/sauce afterwards. At least that is how I would do it. winner winner chicken dinner!!

RE: It is a BIG desert!

Over Thanksgiving, we had someone in our group park less than 8 feet to the outside of us (while we were sleeping) - their rug was literally under my moho. When I got up the next morning, I kindly reminded them that I run my genny - ALOT - and that their bedroom was right next to my genny - and I am an early riser. They got the hint and moved. We were not in a compacted area, they were just inconsiderate.

RE: Internal Organs pushed towards spine

thanks everyone. I was having a "moment" when I posted. Both of my "boys" (they are 23 and 19) left home this year, oldest entered the Navy and the other has gone off to college in another state. Becoming empty nesters has been difficult for us. We were always involved in their activities. Now with the dog entering her twilight, it has been even more difficult for me. Luckily, the boys will be home for Christmas - college boy comes home next week for a month and then the Navy boy will get a week starting the 19th. I digress ... Thank you for your uplifting and positive posts. Just needed some reassurances.

RE: Internal Organs pushed towards spine

When she pushed her abdomen a certain way, Sammie winced in pain. Is the diagnosis most likely a mass? Is there such a thing as positional movement of the organs towards the spine? Isn't the pain significant? With the pain on palpation, 14 year old Boxer and symptoms an abdominal mass would be #1 on my list. Most abdominal masses are spleen or liver (but not all of them). Position can have some effect, but not usually towards spine unless positioning was really skewed. Hard to give any good advice, but the follow up suggestions by the vet are not out of line. Difficult decisions for sure. Doug, DVM Thanks Dr Doug. She did mention spleen or liver mass. But again, without the proper diagnostic tool, unable to make a diagnosis. It is not about the money, even if she has the mass, I'm not sure what we would do about it. Her quality of life is what is most important to me. I question putting a dog that old through cancer treatments, thinking if the cancer didn't kill her, the treatment might.

RE: Internal Organs pushed towards spine

Common symptom of thyroid is dog loses tail hair ie rat tail. MY dog was on seizure meds for 8 years. That is BS about quality of life. Your dog could have a seizure when you are not there and become seriously injured. I would have walked out and found another vet. My dog gets the same medical care I get for myself. I don't go to bad DRs and neither does my dog. Sorry, JMHO. She doesn't have a tail, so no hair loss. She has been on the Synthroid since being diagnosed. We did change her vet, which is why she is now on the seizure med. Thank you for your opinion.

Internal Organs pushed towards spine

I have a 14 year old (F) boxer named Sammie. We knew she has arthritis/spondylosis and has been on Tramadol and had been diagnosed with the thyroid issue a few months back and is now on Synthroid. She has also had seizures in the past and the vet did not want to put her on anti-seizure meds. saying it might take away her quality of life. We took her in to the vet earlier this week, she wasn't eating/drinking well and had vomited. She had another seizure. The vet manually checked her abdomen, did blood work and took xrays. When she pushed her abdomen a certain way, Sammie winced in pain. Blood work came back all normal. Xrays showed her internal organs are pushed up towards her spine. Vet said that it was either a mass pushing them up there or it was "positional" meaning the way she was sitting for the xrays made it look that way. Unless we were willing to spend another $450 (visit was already $550 - dr visit, x rays, blood work and new meds) and wait for the visiting ultrasound dr, there was not much more she could diagnose. Her pain med was changed and she was put on the anti-seizure med. She seems to feel better and is definitely eating/drinking better. I know 14 y/o boxers are uncommon and I know that cancer is a huge risk with them. Is the diagnosis most likely a mass? Is there such a thing as positional movement of the organs towards the spine? Isn't the pain significant? I asked these questions of my vet, but not sure I rec'd a good answer - if there is one without doing the ultrasound.

RE: Any beef short rib fans?

I had a few packages of the cross cut type given to me. I marinated in an asian salad dressing for 72 hours then put them on the bbq. Very thin cut, so only took a few minutes to cook. Delicious!! Served with long grain rice / quinoa mix, and grilled asparagus. Only marinated for so long because had an emergency the night I planned on cooking, then had plans for the next night so I cooked the 3rd night.

RE: Pesto pizza pockets

Dave, pudgie pies are made using a pie iron. It's cast iron and you use bread with other things to made all sorts of pockets. I think what they are calling pudgie pie, I would call a panini.
