    What do you put in your gin when there's no tonic n limes around? Huh? WHAT?
    I do however have a strong dislike for kids that stick them on their fingers. And the parents that allow that shit.

    I'm well aware that *other* people don't mind olives. And I'm OK with that. Eat all the olives you want. It's cool.

    But those nasty little things can fuck right off.

    You need a SootEater and a powerful drill. Clean that shit from the bottom up. Sweeping a chimney from the top down is so Dickensian.

    Also, burn drier wood (2 summers split and stacked, minimum) and run your stove hotter.

    You're welcome.

    That's it, you are going into a FEMA camps until you love olives! Not just tolerate or like them, but love them.

    I still recall farm-cured olives from my great uncle. Put me on a life long quest of green cured olives.

    The black ones are sawdust in comparison.

    If you're ever on the I-5 corridor north of Sacramento, this place is olive heaven: https://www.granzellas.com/

    The Italian Dry Oil Cured are like no other olive you've had.

    There is no place in eastern Idaho that I have found where one can purchase a decent baguette or good cheese. Broulim's has tried to up their cheese game. I usually stop in at Whole Grocer to pick up some cheeses and breads when on that side of the pass.

    That's what the tiny tech-bro baby Jesus gave us the mute and camera-off button.

    Also, zoom annoys me. There's no good reason to use that pile of unsecured garbage. Same with MS Teams.

    This bears repeating; frequently. And should be based in the 'America's Burning' thread, or anywhere where politics leaks into that's not PolyAss.

    Be awesome and love each other.

    Some but it's definitely not as big as here. I really like it and I'll now pick up a sourdough baguetter over a french-style one if I have the option. The sourdough is a bit denser and doesn't seem to dessicate as fast.

    This. Black olives are an abomination, I can't understand why they're left on the tree so long. Pick the fuckers before the texture goes to shit! Farm-cured greens OTH, now that is some delicacy I wouldn't mind stuffing my face with more often.

    Just to bring things full circle, the olive loaf from my sister's bakery is some of the best snacking bread you've ever had.

    Dip it in equally good olive oil with a bit of fresh grated parm mixed in and pair with a bottle of white and you've got dinner.
    I still call it The Jake.

    Boissal, there's no good bread within 20 miles of our Issaquah house. There was a great boulangerie within walking distance of our house in Berkeley, and I miss it so much. Americans mostly suck at cheese, bread, pastries, and cured meats. Basically anything good to eat that takes a bit of time and is subtle.
    Well maybe I'm the faggot America

    The FDA does a great job of preventing us from having quality cured meats.

    I dunno - these guys are doing a pretty damned good job of it, locally:

    There was a guy in Bellevue making good baguettes but that was several years ago. I should check with my parents if that place is still open, a friend of theirs from France recommended it.

    I like black olives, good ones at least. I'm not picky about the variety. The pale black olives that taste like sadness do not count in the discussion.

    Order a chainsaw chain. It arrived in a couple of days. USPS. In a locked package locker. With the top of the undersized padded envelope open, the box flattened, and the chain missing. First thought was stolen by a postal employee, but thinking about it maybe the envelope was run through a sorting machine for letters and the chain got squashed out of the box. If so it's probably inside the broken sorting machine along with 10,000 mail ballots.

    460 Bread in Driggs! You can find their baguettes at Barrels and Bins. The dude is pretty good at this baking thing

    Can you stop by the bakery and buy direct? I think this is what I usually pick up in a few places Jackson or Driggs, or bread from Persephone.

    They didn't in the past but I do know they moved their HQ to a new building in the past couple years. Me thinks probably not (especially in these times).

    In France I saw like thousands of folks carrying and chomping on baguettes on their way home from work every day.

    EDIT: the actual saying about a day without bread is "long comme un jour sans pain" which is used to mean something endlessly boring or painful. As long as a day without bread.
    Gotcha, thanks for that.

    BTW, an Italian told me that the best cheese in France is the butter.
