Cool site

Cooking for Engineers is a website I found via the RabenStranger, and has caught my fancy.

Its essentially a cooking website, but with a more analytical view of the process and the outcome, rather then a focus on the ingredients and presentation.
I like it.

Quick question: Any one put up christmas lights yet?

I don't believe in Christmas lights as it wastes electricity and pollutes the environment. Seriously, not yet, not until I get a live tree first, yes a fresh CUT tree from the forest:o)

You murderous animal-home-stealling-tree-hater. :D

Cooking for Engineers is pretty neat but I envy you because you can actually use it. Most of the recipies on there require ingredients that I can't get.

Christmas lights are 5000 yen per string here, a bit a of shocker for a guy who bought a half dozen strings last year for $1 each.

Not yet, don't know if we are since we'll be gone RIGHT after and no one will be here to help dad. But some ppl down the street have started. Here, you put them up around Thanksgiving day, and you take them down by about the 2nd week of the new year. No snow, so you can see all of them!

Yeah we have our tree up (with lights).

Most lights you buy for your tree or house are cheap anyways. They are wired in a series so if one light goes out POOF! all of 'em go out. :P
Well at least the used to be......

We put our Christmas lights up almost two years ago! Hee, hee, hee! It sure makes it easier

Yeah, people around here started 2 weeks ago with the danged lights. Humbug, it wasn't even thanksgiving yet.

We put ours up around 2 weeks beforehand.
Joy, no snow is really fun for lights.
Seth, you need to get some new lights pal.

J, your crazy.

That website is great...I can't really think of anything else to say regarding it, other than it's pretty stinkin' cool.

We never put up lights. One year we did. They stayed up until June. Of course that wasn't as bad as the year we left our Christmas village up until the end of May. That was just sad. Or the lights I put up in our back yard last year...they came down yesterday. But then, you've seen our house. There's not much point.
