Not a loaded statement.

Although we may have our political differences, here's wishing each and every one of you and those you care about a happy, joyous, and prosperous New Year. Eat too much. Don't drink to excess (or at least accept the consequences) and enter into the new year with a positive, hopeful attitude. Our differences are our strength. Let's all work to make a better 2015.

So, did everybody get or give what they wanted for Christmas?

I got the few small things I wanted and was able to give the things my loved ones really wanted or needed. First time in many years we could do that.

A client just sent us this

We are beside ourselves.

I'm almost afraid to open it. It looks like I finally have an excuse to break out one of the Arturo Fuente Opus X Perfection X's I've been saving.

Two teens worse than animals

I wouldn't be too upset if someone fed them to dogs.

2 Teens Arrested For Allegedly Feeding Live Cat To 2 Dogs
BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (AP) — Two teenagers who allegedly fed a live cat to two dogs, videotaped the attack and posted it online have been arrested in Kern County on suspicion of cruelty to an animal.
The Bakersfield Californian reports that while the incident apparently occurred over the summer, Animal Control wasn’t contacted until Dec. 4 after a person reported receiving the graphic video on a social networking site.
Sheriff’s deputies said the video appeared to show two large dogs being fed a live cat while voices in the background encouraged the dogs to attack.
Detectives last week arrested a 15-year-old and a 17-year-old. Both teens were booked into Juvenile Hall.
The investigation is continuing.

There are some bad jokes and innuendos in here somewhere

Should Medicare pay for penis pumps?

Congress is poised to prohibit Medicare from spending an estimated $444 million for vacuum pumps used to treat erectile dysfunction in the next decade, a cost-saving move that may frustrate people who can’t afford drugs such as Pfizer Inc.’s Viagra.

Sous Vide anyone?

OK., so we just got our Anova Precision Cooker that we backed on Kickstarter. It came nicely packaged:

We expected it today so I put some NY Strip into the fridge last night to thaw. I just sealed them up and put them into the pot.:

I'll report back later and let you know how well this thing works.
