The BBQ Pit Boys have an enormous following, and for good reason: they rock! So when I'm going to BBQ something on the grill, one of the first places I turn to for knowledge is these bearded rock stars of BBQ. This weekend we talked about cooking up some BBQ chicken, so of course I visited their website, bbqpitboys.com! We'd bought a large number of legs, however, poultry kinda of scares me. I brought the chicken, the Boys brought the expert advice.
Learn from the Best
BBQ cooking, or grilling, isn't rocket science. However, some of us, like me, are idiots with this stuff. I learned at the knee of my step dad how to BBQ as a child, but first, I did not pay attention, and second, he was much to impatient to teach. He was bad it teaching, that is to say. Adding to that, I have always preferred my meat well done. I know, zip it, I have gotten over that, learned the error of my ways.
I recently had the opportunity to drive a 2019 Chevy Tahoe LT for a day. While cruising around in this brand new, never rented before rental, and recording my observations while doing my normal day job, I came to a good many conclusions.
Pedder Nissan is a car dealership not terribly far from me. Although I usually post on my YoureOn.net site for local entries, I think the scope, and personal nature of this article deserves more exposure than just local.
First, I want to state that I noted that many car dealerships ("stealerships") catch a lot of flak for everything from people feeling like they were taken advantage of, to service departments doing the same and worse. Furthermore, if you go onto Yelp, or Google reviews, and even Facebook reviews, and looks at any seller of cars, pretty much anywhere, you'll find a heck of a lot of vitriol, angry posts mixed with glowing praise. We'll get into that later.
Back to the intro, since Friendslr.com is worldwide, I felt Friendslr was the better venue. That's how strongly I feel about it, so, let's get onto the subject at hand.
The television shows I watched growing up, and many of you watched, lied. As simple as that statement is, I could end this article right here, with that single statement. However, that is not much fun, so let's expand on that, shall we?
Regardless of whether you grew up in the 1960's, 70's, 80's, or later, the plots and machinations of television shows ranged from downright silly, to absurd. That is not to say they were not fun nor entertaining. None of the shows would stay on the air if they were neither nor, necessarily, both! Moreover, it also pays to remember that you, the viewer, are a commodity, for sale to advertisers. So long as you watched, ad folks had someone to sell the wares to. When that audience dropped in size, many TV shows dropped as well. Cancellation awaited all, but some, sooner than others.
Quick sand is a great example of TV lies!
Okay, be honest, you expected quicksand to be a bigger deal growing up than it actually is, yeah?
