I tried split peas for the first time in my life recently
Wait until you try beer- you’re going to love it.
Really, why the wait? you had an aversion to them or you just didn’t know they existed?

I like a little liquid smoke in mine if there’s no ham.
Split pea beer? ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

Lots of data in this link for Delaware for you data lovers (Vinny, I'm looking at you! ;) ). Note of 515 confirmed and 70 probable = 585 total COVID-19 deaths so far in a population of 974,051, 83% are the age 65+ category and 361 were residents of long-term care facilities. I also thought it was in...

Re: Suggestions for how Trump could do better

In reality, I think any Trump decisions regarding the pandemic are made solely through the lens of his personal political interests. It does not appear that his political interests will in any way align with what might be indicated by science. As a lifelong scientist, I am always surprised when peo...

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

I'm not even an introvert; I'm a mild extrovert. I still don't like large crowds though. I'm exactly the same. Crowd hating mild extrovert. I love large crowds /sarcasm/ and I'm a mild introvert; in honor of Pugchief, I'd put them right up there with root canals from a BLM endodontist in Portland a...

Re: "What is your political orientation" Poll

I have a difficult time picking any of the choices so I selected other. I tend to be local and states rights, for law and order, for minimal government, for reasonable taxes, a Constitutionalist, evaluate candidates on issues important to me - best guess if nubies and on their record if incumbent, a...

Re: AOC's Speech is Ridiculous

It's just an insult. You know what you do? You dig your heels in and fire off a clever comeback. You don't cry to the world just because you failed to think of one. That's just your opinion. I've been at the receiving end of an endless stream of cleverly "funny" disguised verbal abuse from a cowork...

Re: The Left is Eating Itself Pt. II

I don’t get it, Vinny. Is this chartered accountant humor? That someone with such an education and present job could engage in such activities! Do you agree he'd NOT fit the stereotype of who you'd expect? Vinny Having lived in Portland for twenty years, I can tell you that that pedigree produced E...

Re: Slogans for Protest Signs

Maddy, You might get some ideas from State Mottos. Personally, I like "Mountaineers are always free". ;) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_U.S._state_and_territory_mottos I would guess that New Hampshire still has the best motto! Perhaps. But you do know when NH established its motto in 1945, t...

Re: Is Trump doing a good job?

Vinny, I know I come across as a jerk a lot. That is sort of my nature. But I want to acknowledge that you are a solid thinker. You are the epitome of an "Examined Life". You do your research and you make conscious decisions. Nothing you do is by accident. I have enormous respect for that. Too bad ...
