My wife is a fantastic cook. There is nothing better than going to a restaurant, my wife saying how much she loves what we are eating and then she tries to re-create it at home. The latest food experiment at the house was lobster tails. We had it at a restaurant we went to then she was dying to try it at home. So we went out and got a 2 stage broiler, got some beer and broiled them in the beer. The site we got this recipe from is fancy this: recipe.com. We use this site religiously and even thought of putting a laptop in the kitchen so that we have the site at our fingertips. As it comes closer to the holidays, this site becomes invaluable as more recipes are needed. So pop on in and get the recipe you need.
I had heard about this on the news the other night. I thought that it was really cool that some doctor out there has actually developed a calculator to figure out your life expectancy. Although I have to admit that I am a bit nervous to use this calculator, as I really don’t want to know what mine is. However, you can go and see how it works and comment back here. I wonder what you would have to do to live to 100. But if you knew, wouldn’t you be stressed out to do it and wouldn’t the stress wear on your body thus giving you a lower life expectancy? Kinda a vicious cycle isn’t it?
Ryan from Washington suggested this one. I was looking aver the site over the past couple of days and am impressed with the content. HowStuffWorks has been around since 1998 by an NC State professor as a hobby. It has since been sold, but the content has apparently gotten a lot better over the years. It started with just science and machines but has grown to encompass almost any topic. Here are some of the recent topics:
– Can water go bad?
– How does America’s Army work?
– How does a toilet work?
– How Hangovers work?
Basically if you want to know how something works, this is the place to go. There are quite a few of these sites popping up, but this one is so well organized and written by experts, not people who think they are experts but the real deal.
