Welcome folks! Come on in grab a cuppa joe, a nice fresh still warm scone and a seat. Don’t mind that moaning you’re hearing DL/LL HQ isn’t haunted. That’s just a certain dragon bemoaning the loss of the Packers and the win by the Patriots.
He’s so upset that he actually admitted to me that I was right all along about the Patriots to avoid giving me the opportunity to doing an I-told-you-so on him.
Now some people who were tricked into locking themselves back in their bolt hole for another day so that certain other people could attempt to talk football smack without fear of pipe dream shattering logic and statistics being brought into the mix might take this as an golden opportunity to rub
that sneaky conniving dragon’s it in the face of that sneak. However I will attempt to take the high road here and not do such a thing… OH LIKE BLOODY HELL I WILL!
With the Pat’s having 9 Super Bowls (4 wins) under their belts to the Falcon’s paltry 2 appearances ( COUGH! 0 wins)I’m pretty sure the results are a forgone conclusion. However lets not depend on my opinion lets get the line from the odds makers shall we?
The Patriots are a 3 point favorite. Current betting odds are 3:2 for Pats & 5:2 for the Ravens .
AHEM!… Moving right along, Texas weather has been it’s usual unpredictable self, just when you think there will be absolutely no winter the skies open, the heavens rumble, the winds blow and the temperatures
plummet ah…err, that is dip semi considerably. Sunday night got down to the high 40s after expecting to be blown clear to Kansas most to the day, while Tuesday saw us in the 80s (while those of you in New England celebrated the Patriot’s win with a Nor’easter). Later towards the weekend we’ll struggle to get out the low 50s. Ah well regardless it beats the bloody hell out of shoveling, blowing, plowing, scraping and sanding!
OK a little update. You’ll probably recall (dimly) that I got a bag of this for Cmas from Molly. Well I finally had the guts to open and try it last Saturday. (I needed SOMETHING to wake me up since there wasn’t going to be any DragonLaffs until Sunday.)
Well not only is it the world’s strongest coffee, it’s also to world’s bitterest! Seriously! Once it was done brewing I poured a bit into a tea cup and blew on it until it was cool enough to taste and evaluate. I made it according to the brewing instructions on the bag in a clean pot with bottled water. It was extremely acrid by itself. I had made 8 cups in my 12 cup pot because that’s what the directions called for. I microwaved another 2 cups of bottled water and added that to the carafe swished it around and tried again, this time with 1 packet of artificial sweetener to a 6 oz. cup (normally I use 1 pkt. to a 14 oz. mug) it was still extremely bitter.
Finally I had to use 2 pkts. of sweetener in my 14 oz. mug plus a good dollop of Half & Half to make it drinkable but far from seriously enjoyable. It reminds me of the time I was out of coffee and had to use Espresso grind to make a pot. I have added 8 oz. of the grounds to the 32 oz. current batch of Brown Gold being sure to incorporate it well. This has added a stronger bottom note and a bit of acidity but I cannot say for sure that I noticed any serious increase in my energy clarity or anything else post consumption of the entire pot of straight Death Wish. So it’s not something I plan on adding to my Brown Gold recipe permanently.
It’s post Inauguration and yet the Liberals are still whining crying and pitching a hissy about Trump. Even their Witch in Chief Hillary “Broomstick’ Clinton has had the good taste to STFU and accept it- at least for 4 years. For the rest of you who can’t seem to bring yourself to follow her example I have this gift to help you get over it and accept it.
BTW- For those of you saying “Trump is not my President” I have some disturbing news. The Electoral College made it official when they cast their ballots and the Chief Justice has sworn him in. he IS the President of the United States of America. If you are an American citizen then he IS your president, like him/it or not.
Still maintaining he’s not? Fine please renounce your citizenship and transport yourself to the nearest border. In short, get out. You don’t deserve to be here. Oh and please drag those whiney Hollyweirdos that made the pledge to leave the country if Trump won with you. Be sure to take Rosie O’Donnell and all of The View with you as well.
And if you’re a Liberal and don’t live though 8 years of Trump, well rest in the comfort of knowing you helped make America great again by not surviving his Presidency.
During the course of writing the issue for this week I received an email asking if since the Super Bowl was in my hometown and my Pats were playing if that meant I would be attending the game at NRG Stadium.
With the match-up set, average ticket prices for the game edged slightly higher, up to $5,216 on Monday, according to a price tracker kept by ticket marketplace SeatGeek.
Not only that but everyone I know will be avoiding the Downtown area like it was filled with plague infected Liberals ah err…I meant to say Zombies. Traffic will be basically gridlock 24/7 from about Wednesday on. Every place to eat and shop will be packed to the maximum allowed by the Fire Marshal with lines out the door. Parking will be impossible and/or astronomically expensive. Lines to get in will be hours long and security is going to be extremely heavy.
Me, I’ll just lay back in my recliner, watch the Puppy Bowl with Molly and grab the occasional update. I’ll eat and drink better and for way cheaper too. And when all is said and done and I’m done celebrating the Patriots win my commute to my rack will be all of 3 minutes long and that includes dropping my dirty dish in the sink, detouring around cats and stopping to a little bladder relief all on the way.

If you ask Alexa (Molly got one for Christmas and I drive her nuts by asking Alexa questions like this) she’ll tell you- “Some say the meaning of life is ‘42.’”

Well folks I had intended to include a bit more but time constraints primarily due to wonky internet access (My area has suffered repeated intermittent service outages of at least an hour duration for the last 24 hours) dictate that I get this up while I can so we don’t have any more complaints about delayed issues.
The secret to brew strong coffee without the bitterness, is to add some drops of apple cider vinegar, and some say a little salt.
I use white vinegar to clean my pot and I used to put a pinch of salt before salt became the devils tool according to modern medicine.
Never tried vinegar in the actual coffee however.
In any event I don’t think anything will help this be less bitter other than dilution
Great issue….I’m with the Patriots too. Can’t believe the price of a seat in the Super Bowl.. Like you said, you can relax in a lounge chair, no crowds no fighting guys in the Boys Room to empty all the beer or whatever you drink. Snacking without paying a King’s ransom. We had it in NJ
two years ago, and your right the entire area gets freaking nuts.
Our part of NJ was just heavy rains and somewhat windy. NJ shore got dumped on once again
with sand dunes disappearing. Paul said it was a good thing it was rain and not snow or we would have been in some deep shit.
I think Paul must be getting senile- he’s obviously got snow and shit confused.
You’ll know for sure when he grabs the newspaper and heads for the bathroom announcing his
intention of make it snow 6 to 8 inches.
At that point you might want to consider becoming good friends with a lawyer and a bail bondsman I see
indecent exposure and littering charges in his future.
Well thank God it is being deposited in the BOWL (noT SUPER BOWL) and not in the driveway!
