While I am sure that some members will give me a hard time about this I wanted to take the opportunity to explain my sensitivity over this issue to those who are sincerely interested. I was actually on what could be considered the opposite side of this situation many years ago. When I was a senior in high school I worked at a local T.G.I Fridays as a waiter. This was back when they were running a special on their Nachos plate for only 2.99. A lot of my peers would come...

I have thought about attaching a cloth covered rubber band to a dark color button which could be used when sitting to keep the jacket closed. I would loop the other end of the band around the attached button.

I don't understand why someone there by the name of Jusey won't allow me to be a member of the forum any longer.

I remember watching his show at my grandmother's house when I was little. I liked it, and have since picked up a couple of his cookbooks for a quarter or 50 cents in various book sales. I like Alton Brown too, but it's an entirely different type of...

Does anyone remember the Frugal Gourmet (Jeff Smith) and Yan Can Cook on PBS? They introduced me to fine cooking while I did my homework after school and being a key latch kid I often used some of their recipes on the nights I was left to prepare my own dinners. In my opinion they were a lot more interesting to watch than Paula Dean and Alton Brown who are very popular chefs on the Food Network.
I have found on occasion that people are impolite or will sometimes try to take advantage of my politeness; which I never perceived as being overly polite until I saw a pattern in other's behavior in what I feel is a response to my own. Sometimes at bars I get the sense that bartenders ignore me when I say "excuse me", "please" or "thank you" and leave me waiting there to order my beer or pay much longer than those around me who use a harsher tone.
