Don't be. The new one is beautiful and once I get the trim replaced and the house painted (just the top--most of the house and garage are stone and/or brick) it will look lovely. I'll post links to before and after photos. It is expensive, but not as bad as it could have been if I'd gone with the commercial roofers. The guy who did my roof put my garage roof on five years ago when I built it. He usually works for contractors (my contractor who is painting suggested we give him a call--they work together regularly.) This roof is of the durable material the insurance company offers a rate discount for. He'll be doing another roof in the neighborhood next week, a much larger job. We're both glad to be able to cut out the middle man in this process--I saved anywhere from $2000 to $4000, depending on which commercial roofer I got quotes from. I think the neighbor will save even more--he has a shake roof with shingles on top (was that way when he bought it), so they have to remove all of it, then put on decking and then the felt and the new roof. The quote he got from the big commercial roofer was about $5 more than they were expecting. It'll take more than the day and a half that mine did.

Moonglow is coming home soon, for Thanksgiving. She wants to be here for breakfast and is afraid if she drives down tomorrow she'll be too late for buttermilk pancakes. I know how to bribe these kids! (She slept late today, so isn't driving tired, but on the night before Thanksgiving I hope they're extra careful out there.)

I am not really capable of entertaining Don McBride. #1...I'm not the right gender. #2...very few common interests. #3...no friggin' way I'm driving 5 and a half hours north of here to entertain Don McBride!

Anyway, thanks for the update, guys. Sorry about the roof, Stilly.

Amos, Little Hawk has to entertain Don McBride on the US Thanksgiving day and it's all MMario's fault.

I myself have no faults.

So....I've been away. Did I miss anything good?

I'm too lazy to read all the posts since I was last here. Just give me a quick summary of the highlights, okay? ;-)

Coming into the home stretch, have the fridge cleaned out and ready to receive tons of leftovers tomorrow. Now I'm working on clearing the sideboard. MOM's taking a nap, says all of this work makes her tired just to watch it.

Seeking to external actions for the source of one's BS is electornically degenerate, Stilly!! All BS comes from within!! Thou Art BS!!

I put up a new design of bird feeder this week. So far I haven't detected any activity, squirrel or sparrow, but with cold weather arriving I hope to see some motion outside my kitchen window soon. I also need to trim the silverado sage so we can see over the top (it's in the direct line with the feeder, and is a favorite perch for our little avian visitors).

When they do arrive, I will once again have a source of BS.

Bird variety, that is.

"The ground state of the triangular boron lattice is electronically degenerate. The degeneracy is lifted, and the energy thus lowered, when the sheet buckles slightly. Before Tang and Ismail-Beigi's work, the buckled triangular lattice was the 2D boron-sheet structure with the lowest known energy. Researchers figured that boron nanotubes would be made of rolled-up pieces of the buckled triangular lattice, with the buckles running either parallel to the length of the tube or in helices around it. Calculations showed such structures to be stable."

While still on the fence myself, I'm starting to teeter in Obama's direction.

Politics is truly the Mother of All BS, right?

Leaving for West by god Virginia at noon tomorrow. I can't wait to get to the assorted junctions of interstate highways to sit and burn gas but no miles. The otherwise small town of Wytheville, VA, where I-77 and I-81 come together briefly, is always particularly fun. If I am really lucky, there will be a number of bumper thumpers along the way so that most of what is normally a 5 1/2 hour trip on rural freeways through a number of my beloved Appalachian ranges will turn into 10 hours that feel like Los Angeles at 5:00 for the entire length. If I am truly, truly blessed, I will get to crawl through the tunnels at both Big Walker and East River mountains at 5 miles an hour, with lots of stop and go. I love breathing fumes in long tunnels.

The selection of books on tape or CD at Cracker Barrel ain't what it used to be (or there just aren't that many really good books out recently that both a 13 y.o. and a 55 y.o. enjoy listening to. If we have a good, long book to listen to, neither of us much care how long it takes to get somewhere.   Just south of Mt. Airy we run out of NPR stations with a budget to spend on interesting programming, and just north of Mt. Airy we run out of NPR stations with enough power to pick up at all except on the ridgetops.

BUT, just outside of Winston Salem, we'll catch our first glimpse of Pilot Mountain, with it's promise of what is to come. Another 35 miles and we are beyond Mt. Airy, crossing the Virginia line, and heading up that long, 7 mile grade through to Fancy Gap. It will be daylight, and we are having a late fall. Much more colorful that we had thought, given the lengthy and severe drought we are still experiencing. That first long mountain of the Blue Ridge hugs the left side of I-77. Looking out the passenger side, the Piedmont drops away as we climb. Mt. Airy and the rest of the Arafat Valley spread out below us in a scene made for a postcard.   We are literally and laterally climbing up the side of the first of the mountains. No other mountains obscure the the vista to the right of us for almost that entire 7 mile climb. Just below Fancy Gap the grade steepens just a bit, the road curves and heads into, not just up, the mountain. Right at Fancy Gap, we cross the bump of the ridge. From here on, the view in every direction will be of long ridges, high valleys, and steep, narrow hollows. We still have 200 miles to go, but this hillbilly heart of mine knows it is home.

The question is, How did the virus get on the machine?

It was "protected" by Norton 360, which includes Norton Antivirus. This was kept up to date and the drives scanned on a regular basis.

However...this year we're moving to Trend Micro. I've been thinking about it for some time and the report in "Consumer Reports" convinced me. This has just reinforced it.

If, on the other hand, I were to find whoever wrote the virus, I would have to shake his hand...and his head...and his spine...and his kneecaps...with a baseball bat. One of the old-fashioned wooden ones.

Easier to have a couple of extras. I didn't have time to do a lot of shopping this morning, just to take a quick look. They sell quantities of meat and poultry in good cuts at very nice prices. Good thing I have the large freezer!

I made a "fine scale cuisine" discovery today--literally in my own back yard. I was over at the mall trying to get a plastic container with a lid large enough to brine a turkey but small enough to fit in my cooler of ice while it soaks. (I've never done this before, so advice is welcome!) Anyway, the size container I wanted was sold out, and I commented that I could swing by a restaurant supply place in the next town over. The clerk helping me said there was one in Fort Worth, and he named my freeway exit (I live about three blocks from the highway and that exit). I named the only likely business I knew at that corner, I thought it was a warehouse for grocery stores, but it turns out it is a restaurant supply warehouse and they have a cash and carry store out back. I stopped by and it is WONDERFUL! Also more reasonably priced than the other store. I found my container and also bought a jug of soy sauce (I'm almost out).

LH, may the FSM descend upon you and show you The Way, The Truth, and The Light. May you repent of such heresy, and may your repentance involve sharing the same blankets used by "Shane" McBride after an especially hard week, but without bedbugs, crabs and lice.

To answer JiK's question, I think that the FSM would be satisfied if a combination of cheeses, including asiago, were used as long as they were freshly grated. Stuff from green shakers should only be used in An Extreme Emergency.

What makes this question all the more difficult is the lack of uniform agreement, both internationally and within Italy, as to what cheeses these appellations actually refer. According to that most reliable of sources, Wikipedia, Romano is apparently a fairly generic term applied to cheeses that can be made with goat, sheep or cow's milk. However, it also connotes a very ancient method of cheese production. Ancient is good. Right?

The designation parmesan, however, is fraught with contraversy and international disagreement. Some would say parmesan is a term applied only to an apostate American made cheese produced by Kraftsmen.

Think of the implications. What if YOUR child were spaghettied by Kraft Parmesan, moved to Italy, tried to join an FSM congregation there, and was rejected as having been Sprinkled with an imposter.

This could have implications for all eternity!

What's a mudder or fadder to do??!!!!

Although I've searched the FSM website carefully, a nagging question is unresolved.

In the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster, when a child is Spaghettied (the rough equivalent of "christened") should the ritual sprinkling be with Parmesan or Romano - or are there separate schisms subscribing to each.

Our own congregation can't seem to come to an agreement.
