When It's Cold Outside - It's Chili by Donna Hager There are as many different kinds of chili as there are cooks. Will the history of chili tell us where chili originated and what chili recipe is the best? Actually, I love chili anytime of the year, but during cold weather it is especially good, or as the novelist Margaret Cousins said, "Chili is not so much food as it is a state of mind. Addictions to it are formed early in life and the victims never recover. On cold, blue days in October, I get this passionate yearning for... Continue reading

Choosing a Good Dog Shear by Stuart Michael A good pair of dog shears goes a long way. They do not only last longer but also make the grooming experience quick and reliably without problems. Thus, it is important to find a pair that gives you all that. First, choose a shear that does not require frequent oiling. Blades require oiling so that they can last longer and cut easier. However, one that needs to be lubricated too frequently may mean that it requires oil for it to cut well, instead of its blades. You will also want to pay... Continue reading

by Joseph Last week I started working out at a new gym. The new gym is geared more toward heavy weight lifting than the gym I had been using in August 2017; the drawback is this gym has only two smith machines and neither is equipped to lower the fixed Olympic bar to the level necessary for floor press exercises, thus I will have to postpone the floor press now and write about the flat bench for now. I have not done flat benches since November 2013 at my first gym (which was also geared toward heavy lifting), so I... Continue reading

We have newer carpet and maintaining it seems to be a job in its own. I love the look and feel of the carpet but with two kids and three cats find myself at a... Continue reading

Stale meat renders them bad, and fat is not so well adapted for making them. The principal art in composing good rich soup, is so to proportion the several ingredients that the flavour of one shall not predominate over another, and that all the articles of which it is composed, shall form an agreeable whole. To accomplish this, care must... Continue reading
