    I can’t disagree with ND as one of the 4 CFP selections

    They just got their butts handed to them yesterday, didn't they? Should be somebody else, but it is ND which for the last several years seems to be over ranked and underachieving. I suspect this semifinal game amounts to yet another walk in the park for Bama to the title game. Not that they need one.

    and The Police

    That was their first album and in my humble opinion, their best. I was 16 years old and bought it on my 15 minute break with tip money from sacking groceries.

  3. How old are you? I suffer from tinnitus at times. As we get older our hearing range decreases and that hearing loss for me has been filled at times with ringing in the ear. I once could hear out to 22K hz. Now I top out at 13K or so. If I get around anything loud, music or otherwise, I get some ringing in the ear that can last for days.

     


  4. Pellet smokers are great. I have owned a couple of different factory ones and built one also. They do a great job and the flavor is awesome. A lot depends on the pellets you use. I prefer 100% hickory pellets, but there are all kinds. Lots of variables at play when you try comparing one cooking technology with another. I've smoked with green hickory wood, charcoal, & pellet smokers. All can produce good smoked meats. I prefer the pellet smoking myself. There are forums dedicated to these type smokers. Check them out.

     

    I have a separate gas grill I use for grilling. I swapped out the regulator for a HP regulator like you might use with a turkey fryer. This way I can sear steaks for a couple of minutes on each side to get the affect we like. A regular gas grill just doesn't get hot enough. There are a couple of good threads on this forum about pellet smokers and smoking.

    if you're waiting to bid in the last minute anyway, it doesn't save you anything.

    Come on Schu,  that's not true. A computer is WAY better at doing something in a split second than any person trying to snipe. The sniping software can also resign you in before a human finger even gets to the keyboard.

    Why don't you just bid the max you're willing to spend ahead of time?

    That's like laying down your poker hand before the dealer is finished! :)

    I usually make offers on BIN items on Ebay these days. Haven't sniped anything in years.

  7. "Anyone out there who can tell me what our end game is with the covid 19?
    What is the magic formula that is going to allow us to sound the all clear?
    Is it zero cases?
    The only way that will happen is if we just stop testing and stop reporting.
    Is it a vaccine?
    It took 25 years for a chicken pox vaccine to be developed.
    The smallpox inoculation was discovered in 1796 the last known natural case was in 1977.
    We have a flu vaccine that is only 40 to 60% effective and less than half of the US population choose to get one, and roughly 20,000 Americans will die of the flu or flu complications.
    Oh, you'll mandate it, like other vaccines are mandated in order to attend school, travel to some foreign countries, etc.
    We already have a growing number of anti vaxxers refusing proven, tested, well known vaccines that have been administered for decades but aren’t necessarily safe!
    Do you really think people will flock to get a fast tracked, quickly tested vaccine, whose long term side effects and overall efficacy are anyone's best guess?
    How long are we going to cancel and postpone and reconsider?
    You aren't doing in person school until second quarter?
    What if October's numbers are the same as August's?
    You moved football to spring?
    What if next March is worse than this one was?
    When do we decide quality of life outweighs the risks?
    I understand Covid can be deadly or very dangerous for SOME people, but so are strawberries and so is shellfish.
    We take risks multiple times a day without a second thought.
    We know driving a car can be dangerous, we don't leave it in the garage. Many speed and don't wear seat belts.
    We know the dangers of smoking, drinking and eating fried foods, we do it anyway.
    Is hugging Grandma really more dangerous than rush hour on the freeway?
    Is going out with friends after work more risky than 4 day old gas station sushi?
    Or operating a chainsaw?
    When and how did we so quickly lose our free will and give up our liberty?
    Is there a waiver somewhere I can sign that says, "I understand the risks, but I choose a life with Hugs and Smiles, and the State Fair and go to Church and go hug my Mom in her retirement home?
    I understand that there is a minuscule possibility I could die, but I will most likely end up feeling like crap for a few days.
    I understand I could possibly pass it to someone else, if I'm not careful, but I can pass any virus onto someone else.
    I'm struggling to see where or how this ends.
    We either get busy living or we get busy dying.
    When God decides it's your time, you don't get any mulligans, so I guess I would rather spend my time enjoying it and living in the moment and not worrying about what ifs and maybes, and I bet I'm not the only one.
    (I copied this from someone else, but it makes sense)
