You can watch a cooking show and learn things at the same time. Yes, the show is full of awfully bad puns, but it's such a good show I usually overlook the cheesiness. I'm currently watching the Westminster Dog Show. I'm so fascinated by these dogs. They're just so cute. I love the long-haired ones because when they run, it looks like they're gliding. Question for anyone who knows I hope everyone is having a wonderful day. Each breed competition think dog show has a certain number of points awarded to the winning dog used here to indicate both male and female of each breed they get no points for winning the entire show.
In order to become a champion, a dog has to win a total of 15 points, including 2 shows that are "majors" under two different judges with the remainder of the points coming from judges other than the major judges. A major means that 3 or more points were awarded pts is the range. These are difficult to get in certain breeds because it requires a huge number of dogs to be entered Labs, for example, need almost animals entered.
It is actually a little more complicated but I would have to use a bunch of dog show related terms that make no sense out of context. For example, in my breed, Rottweilers, a 5 pt major requires 20 females to be present, 23 males to be present. Majors are hard to come by and nothing upsets people more than someone breaking a major It can be very frustating to choose a show for the major and then the last moment, the number changes and it becomes a 2 pt show.
The number of dogs required for a major vary by location and breed. More than you ever wanted to know It's not more than I wanted to know. I love learning about new things of which I previously had no knowledge. So, can you tell me why they usually have such fancy names for the dogs? Does it have anything to do with breeding like in horses? At least, I think horses are sometimes named according to the sire and insert proper horse terminology for mommy here. In some cases, the breeder also has either a theme or a letter they require the new owner to use.
Stone Fort is the breeder's name, all of her dogs use the Stone Fort prefix. My girl came from the "E" litter, all of the dogs in her litter are Stone Fort E I could have chosen to name her Stone Fort E Susie. I chose Eternal Hope but it had to be an E name. We call her Daria. Not all breeders require you to use their name or theme, it varies. There is also a limit of With immortality, you can have eternal hope.
Daria is named for a priest on the show, Darius. Geez, those awful, abysmal, appalling puns are the best part. Hey Denise, the Irish Terrier was robbed! My hopes rest with the Bloodhound, my son's favorite. Don't you just love his nephew? His sister is quite a character as well. Denise, thanks so much for the dog show information.
That's what I love about this place. Just ask a question, and someone will know the answer or where you can find one. I can't believe it! Does he name them as such? I'm usually doing something else as I watch him so it would be easy for me to miss stuff.
I'll have to watch more carefully. Did anyone notice the Corgi named Harry Potter? The sister is portrayed as quite an annoying know-it-all who doesn't know a thing about cooking. They're on the show occasionally, but not terribly much. Good Eats comes on every weekday at 7: And yes, the dog named Harry Potter was great. I love the cute little terrier named Coco. All the dogs are so precious, though, I don't know which one I want to win. Well I was rooting for the little Norfolk, she was working the crowd but the winner was very lovely as well and moved so nicely.
I will keep my eye out for them. He makes cooking fun--and that's saying something for me. Well, I thought the Border and the Pyr were both eye-catching but the German Shorthaired Pointer never put a foot wrong. Her poses were amazing. I had no idea it would be so complicated to get the points. I have been trying to reduce the photos of my other two dogs in order to use them as avatars. No go so far. I only have the photo editor that came with the computer and haven't felt the need to get a better photo editor. Now might be the time to start looking. I have suddenly discovered another time consuming "hobby", creating my own web page!
I had started using a shareware program that did most of the work for you, except I found it difficult to work with. There are a lot. I printed off heaps on the laser printer of tutorials, articles, lists etc and now I am having lots of fun doing it the hard easier way by hand. It took two hours to get the dog photos up. It pays to proofread everything and look for errant spaces. Pancakes have never been popular within my family, piklets won out every time. The only pancakes I make are the ones which you stuff and put a sauce on the top. The only variety I make is Zucchini and Carrot, with a tomato based sauce, for when I don't want to eat meat.
I bow in further awe. As for your coccyxal misfortune, I can empathise. Last July my wife slipped on the stairs and broke her tailbone--not bruised, not fractured, broke.
For the next three months! Actually, since it happened during the summer she got a bunch of kid-sized pool floats; they're the same size as the "medical doughnut pillow" but cost 99 cents each versus 40 dollars. If one springs a leak, it's a lot cheaper to replace! They'd probably be tough to get this time of year, though, unless one of our Aussie friends wants to send some to you Your show sounds fun BTW! If they want to show all our weird culinary habits, they've got a lot to do Even the sayings have often culinary references here: Eating and cooking or cooking and eating, it depends are really a national pastime here.
It's not good for our weigh but it is very pleasant during grey winter weekends. Too bad I am still sick and can't eat anything but soup or tea those days Just typing this was enough for my breakfast today! Have a great Wednesday everybody! Here, the day promises to be snowy and cold again, enjoy the sun if you have some! I'll send some cheering and get well charms your way. I noted the last Rugby match was very close and France won.
I am looking forward to seeing a few matches on TV this year. Also some get well and cheering charms to Fawkes and Meg for your sore backs. I hope they settle down soon. I might go get a couple and stash them away for when I do my lower back in again. This flu is a real nuisance. I watched the match last Sunday and it was very close indeed! To be honest, at half-time, I thought it was over we have another culinary saying here for saying that: Did you notice that the English team had a player named Moody?
Well, as the other players, it was only at the end of the match that he started to look like the "real" one Next time, we'll play Wales and it promises to be a tough match too since the Welsh won their first matches as well. Fortunately, we will play "at home", I hope it will help! In fact, I just meant ordinary, everyday cooks don't use that much orange flavored things. My mother, who cooks very well, never uses them. Elanor, some healing charms from me too.
My husband doesn't feel so well too. His allergy seems to get worse. If he isn't better this evening, I think I'll take him to the hospital. He's scratching himself so much that he had begun to take dots of skin off. See, thats what I love about you guys I'm sending all my charms your way, as I think your need is greater than mine. Hope all is going well with you and junior When are you due by the way? As for the great pancake debate. My way of looking at it was, the fluffy things are pancakes, whereas the thin ones are crepes?
Perhaps thats an over simplification on my behalf? Either way, I'll eat both However the pancakes I make tend to fall somewhere in between on the thickness scale The Mannekenan- I'll not say the rest of the name If so, I've seen him my sis used to live near there. Mike aka Giant Squid - For heaven's sake, girl, stay away from goofy, stammering editors, then!
Hee hee, that was a 'spew' moment! It's a good job I don't work in publishing then I'd have to find one first Good call on the kids floats as a cushion, I may pop into the local pound They have all sorts of odd things for sale at various time of the year Got some good news yesterday. OK, the dementors have arrived I'm enjoying the 6 nations rugby at the moment too I hope you have a great day. Everyone have a great day!!!
Spring training is here! The season of rebirth is here, again. You give me too much credit. After two beautiful days, the cold wind is back here. I am off to mail postcards to a certain child of a certain Forum member today. Got to go and deposit the rest of the cookie money so we can close that out even though husband asked me last night to get another case of somoas.
We really appreciate it! Elanor and septentrion, I'm glad you weren't offended. They got my mind going and I'm hoping other people's as well. Does anyone have a favorite saying? The more parochial the better. I would especially like to have any non-English speakers translate their sayings. When I grew up, if I got upset my mother would admonish me not to "take a bird" but when I went out to Colorado, they said "have a cow". Recently, I've been using the expression "tell 'em where the dog died" to express the exercise of telling someone off.
Growing up, a friend's father could endlessly reinvent the phrase "whatever floats your boat". I can't remember them all but the two I do remember might not be fit for all forum readers so I'll keep those to myself. I'm also terribly fond of "come to Jesus meeting" which happens when someone is going to be re-educated as to how things are done. I bet this group can come up with some truly unique, regional expressions. I'll admit to a prejudice that the Southerners in the crowd, with their rich, literary heritage, can do well here. And I'm hoping Fawkes will pass along some authentic Irish sayings and not the lame ones that are plastered everywhere I go in Boston.
No pressure though folks. I just thought it might be fun. There are so many. A few favorites in my house are "When in Florida, do as the old people do," I appologize to any non-old Floridians I may have just offended "Nu, you're turning this into a MushkaGupin," for when someone is making mountains out of molehills, and of course, "The cat's among the pixies now.
A non regional one but a favorite around here comes courtesy of a popular cartoon character. It can come at the beginning too. Interesting difference, as he was actually referring to someone's speed for instance at getting ready to go somewhere. They never took the money out of my account. Now I have a late fee and have lost some sort of interest deferment option. I tried talking to them last night, but I was so angry I started crying and hung up on them. I hate it when I cry! So I need to try again today.
Makes me wonder if college was really worth all the money and mess afterward. Well I'm late for work again Happy Wednesday, almost to the end of the week! How do you fit everything you do into the day? I only sleep about 5 to 6 hours a night and still fall way short of getting everything done! On the "expression" front, for someone who has a run of unexpected good luck - "Even a blind pig finds a acorn now and then. Has anyone replaced a "motherboard"? Still having home PC issues.
Okay, here are some more that come to my mind: Sept, I hope your husband will feel better soon! Ydnam, I send you cheering charms and I hope everything will work out all right. And a good Wednesday to you all! Pince says it a lot when I ask him about some sort of problem Some of these are regional and some are just expressions that have taken hold in my little circle of friends. I understand it to be used when someone is expressing understanding but with some measure of reservation. What are you doing? Wanna buy a box? It refers to "Bluing" laundry detergent which used to be sold door to door.
The point of the stinging retort, I suppose, is to tell the inquisitor to stop being so nosy. You see, the South is not always marked by rapier wit or cleverness. ABC-- This means "Anybody but Carolina" and expresses the correct attitude towards any University of North Carolina sports team, but especially the basketball team. I'll see if I can think of some others. Anyway, hello to all. But the quote is about a complete lack of communication and a degree of pointlessness. I wonder, Vlad, if your quote is another version of the same thing.
She had two sayings that she used frequently. Some of these may be specific to my family: Hope you enjoyed these. I had fun writing them down! Lady Arabella Prefect Posts: Thanks for all the birthday wishes. I can't believe you remembered! I feel so special now. It's been way too long. Im going to have to mark the whole forum as read. Hopefully I'll be able to log in more often now. You've all given me a chuckle.
Here are some of my favorites. We had to take two hydrogen molecules and smash them into an oxygen molecule. It might be the phone! My dictionnary says "to tire out one's opponent", however. Well I think they still have more as deliveries just started on the 12th. Fang, is one mastiff dog all-right. I thought of some others: Methusaleh was a person in the Bible who was, reportedly, about years old. I think there is a third part, but alas, Mrs.
Bumbledore is the one who knows the complete phrase. The following comments do not reflect the opinion of this poster. Have you ever notice how uncommon, common sense seems to have become?
Perhaps one of the French members can help me out with this one. It means "not to feel quite yourself". Ron would like this one. I've just remembered a funny one you can say to someone who is too familiar with you and you don't like it: I love the French ones to do with pushing up the daisies death. There are a few variants of this.
It basically means slow down, you are taking life too fast. If I think of any more I'll post them later. Have a great day everybody.
Think of Benny Hinn. My husband the lawyer gave me a couple: Fifty-one more and you'd be a full deck. Another version of the death themed sayings, this one commonly said by a local radio show host, so-and-so "won't be coming down for breakfast. I'm beginning to believe all French sayings do involve food, as Elanor I believe said. They are very amusing. Sorry, this one is just too tasteless. Bad Barb, bad Barb How about these I heard in Georgia: My dad called me last night.
For those of you who have been here awhile, you may remember me mentioning that Dad is a bit of a packrat. I can hear squidboy sniggering. Another beloved trait of Dad's is remembering what a person likes and buying them stuff until they are utterly sick of it. My sister collects Coca-Cola items. She now has an entire bedroom full of Coca-Cola.
I mentioned 10 years ago that I liked unusual-looking salt and pepper shakers. I have so many now that I have some in boxes. The latest is, luckily for me, HP Legos. I mentioned earlier that my mother bought the Hogwarts Castle on sale.

It was actually my father who found it. He also found Hagrid's Hut. So yesterday's phone call was "Do you have Professor Lupin's Classroom? Sorry for running on a bit. So how is everyone? We just got back from Tahoe and are both very stuffy and sick and coughing and sneezing. I hope you and Brandon feel better soon!
Glad to hear that you two had a good time in Tahoe. I'm in a bit of a mood right now. I had a run in at dinner with someone who is, as Marie said meaner than a striped snake. If you really want the details you can check out my LiveJournal. The link is in my profile. Click on my name to get there.
It was a decent game, but not all that exciting. I wanted to note that the trailer for Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy is on Amazon. It looks like it's going to be a lot of fun. Go check it out if you're interested. It looks pretty good, although I'm afraid that some of the humor won't translate well to film. I was happy to see that the whale is listed as a character.
Back from San Francisco great fun all around and finally caught up on this thread. I'm sending cheering charms your way. What a time for a run-in: I have trouble eating for days after confrontations. Question for all of you good cooks out there: Do you have any good recipes for Brie? I work in a deli, and we had a LOT of Brie go out of date on us, so we can't sell it, but I can't handle throwing it away either. It's still perfectly good.
I just don't know how to do anything other than spread it on French bread. I've really enjoyed reading all of the different quotes. Some of them I'd heard before, and some of them were completely new. The version of the blind man quote that I've always heard goes as follows slightly edited to make sure I am forum friendly: Now let's see you get out of it. Maybe you would have been able to catch it if your hair was bigger. I actually haven't heard this one much anymore since big bangs went out of style.
And finally, my favorite from my high school Russian class, spelled phonetically as I don't know how to post Cyrillic letters, "Potomu shto pochemu, a konchi'etsa na u. Use any green veggie, green beans, asparagus, broccoli. Melt in a pan 8 oz Brie, 8 oz cream cheese and 4 oz of butter. Stir well until melted nicely. While that cooks, crumble some bacon on the veggies. Pour the cheese on top and bake at that universal F until the cheese starts to just brown. I steam my veggies prior to baking to speed the process up.
If you are baking the veggies too, I would cover the mixture.

I loooove this stuff! The baking will stop the further aging and prevent spoilage for a while. As for exact baking time, well I can't remember exactly, so what I'd do is visit epicurious. This site really has loads of good stuff on it. It's sponsored by "Bon Appetit" or "Gourmet" magazine I get them mixed up, but they're both wonderful. Denise, your recipe sounds heavenly, but ohmigosh, quite loaded with calories! However, it is a veggie dish, so I suppose that's a redeeming feature. I'll keep it in reserve for when company's comin'. Sirius - Feb 16, 9: Unfortunately, our suppliers have told us that this item will not be available in the foreseeable future.
But don't give up yet. Have you returned to Amazon. One of our Merchants or Marketplace sellers might have it in stock, either new or used. If so, it will be listed on the product's information page, and you'll be able to. What does this mean? My mother's was "why is there never time enough to do things right the first time but plenty of time to do it over again". This one falls more to the movie quote: Before melting the Brie, you do have to remove the coating. The recipe was given to me by a friend of mine who is a cook with SCA.
She will only cook authentic dishes from her time period, which I believe is 15th century. The recipe is actually called Savory Toasted Cheese. If you do a google search, there are all kinds of variations. When I make this, usually only on special occasions, there is a fight to see who will do dishes since the one doing dishes hides the leftovers and then acts innocent later. I have written the recipe down and will try it tomorrow. Thank you as well, Barb. I hadn't thought to bake the cheese to make it keep longer. Now that we are spread so far apart it doesn't get said much anymore.
First post of the day! One of my friends made me laugh a lot recently: Two very simple recipes with Brie: Put in the oven until the cheese has melted. Serve with bacon, delicatessen, and with dressed green salad. When they are slightly coloured, gently rub a peeled clove of garlic on the surface the clove should suffice for about 6 slices of bread. Then put one or two slices of cheese onto the bread and put back into the oven to melt the Brie. You can also try this recipe with goat cheese or gruyere. I also recommend a green salad to serve with. Try putting some of it in dough. Can't find the correct english word Add a spoon of honey, if you have some you could add some rosemary or thyme if you like that.
Wrap the dough around the whole thing, close it well don't want the honey leaking out and put it in the oven till it's good. If you are using a kilo-sized wheel, place one sheet of the pastry in a 9-inch pie plate, set the scraped if you want cheese on the crust, brush the edges of the crust with egg wash, place the other sheet on top, seal the two sheets, folding them decoratively toward the top, brush with more egg wash and sprinkle with sesame seeds.
Bake until golden and let stand for minutes so you don't get scalded by hot cheese. I did not snigger! Okay, maybe a snort. Possibly a scoff, but not a snigger! I'll have to give Dad a call tomorrow. As for pithy sayingth, I have a couple: Here's one that was in the movie Sweet Home Alabama; I still don't know what it means, but I've been assured that it's an actual phrase: As for "'I see' said the blind carpenter as he picked up his hammer and saw," it's a pun.
Think of "saw" as a verb instead of a noun. It would probably look like one of those huge Russian fur hats people used to wear in the 60s and 70s, except with eyes and a plumey tail. I remembered one more saying from a friend in college: We have a teacher work day today and tomorrow, so the kids have no school for two days. Naturally, this coincides with a cold snap in which our lovely degree weather has dropped to the 20s, 30s, and 40s.
They're just gonna have to bundle up, and go outside and play, to avoid getting on "Mom's last nerve.
