    Don't care about her or Ty Pennington (recognize him) but if Durant does win, I'm game to come renovate some stuff on Main Street there if the $$ is good...

    When the weather gets nicer, I know a dude there that can probably take me fishing for about 8 hours a day ..... divided before, after, and during working hours.

    I should also be able to launch a lucrative mailbox building business while I'm there...

    Was going to start to fill up the shop's new storage rack when I decided I would be foolish to do so without making a wall mount for the top of it. So after I finished up the normal daily work activities, I made a couple quick mounts out of some 5" channel and got them welded in.





    Might get time to load it tomorrow, maybe.

    I am a bit biased, and I am by no means a real expert, though I have won a couple chili comps (humble brag), but this here may be the perfect bowl of chili.

    IF the chili is as good as you say,

    and IF that is a normal teaspoon,

    then that bowl is too small!
    Courage is knowing it might hurt, and doing it anyway.
    Stupidity is the same.
    And thats why life is hard.

    It probably is an awesome bowl of chili but sadly i can't see it due to the fact that someone accidently spilled some kind of goo on top of it.

    We drill and install underground utility piping. The work also includes opening "potholes" to verify the location of other underground utilities. Potholing involves using high pressure water (similar to a mobile car wash but the nozzle is different) and vacuum to suck up the debris.

    When the temps drop below 20-25 degrees the water system will freeze up and ruin some expensive pumps and such. That costs money - about $5,000 for the high pressure pump.

    Couple that with the fact that folks don't work as hard or as well in low temps and you wind up not getting much work done, which increases the labor costs on that job while the revenue stays the same.

    It simply doesn't make financial good sense to work in this kind of weather where the high in the afternoon will barely make 20 degrees.

    Last, but not least, the utility companies that we work for usually have a supervisor on scene and they don't want to be out in this weather, either. Even if they spend their day sitting in their truck.

    My own happiness comes from almost never having a day off during the week. I may get out and get some errands done today.

    It's a little larger than the standard tablespoon but not by much. Here is one next to a standard tablespoon.



    Honestly size is part of what I believe makes the perfect bowl. You do not want too much, or too little. Needs the right amount of crunch as well. When I was younger I loved saltine crackers and some cheese. But over time and many bowls of chili, I believe I have found the best combination.

    First, layer the bottom of the bowl with a fresh, warm tortilla. I prefer flour and my wife prefers corn, then a small amount of corn chips go on top of the tortilla. Then followed by a small amount of cheese and a laddle full of chili. Then a few more corn chips and I fill the tortilla to the top with chili and top it with some more cheese.

    No need to stir or mix the contents to get a little something with each bite. And the bowl can not be too big, or the crunchy contents won't stay crunchy throughout the entire bowl. Yes, this means that you will need multiple bowls in order to complete a full meal. But will ensure the entire meal tastes great. This is of course, only when it comes to a Colorado (hearty red with meat and beans) style chili.
