    Yep, bittersweet chocolate and bay leaf go together well.

    You can also use basically the same recipe for other spices with minor tweaks. Cardamom is my SO's favorite. Other options that have turned out well include chili powder, matcha, and ginger.

    You can always add a shot of espresso too.

    @Captain Dave Poulin is disgusted right now. He may have scoffed himself to death.

    Bus trip to Vikings few years ago buddy mixed almost your exact recipe all the way down. Needless to say we fell out of the bus arriving in Minny.

    Bourbon is very tasty. It's a great sipping drink, especially when it's cold outside. Always seems to warm me up.

    The recipe isn't set in stone, feel free to substitute more bourbon instead :laugh:

    In NS...the gap is 105 days from dose 1 to dose 2 as they did so to try and get as many as pssible to have 1 first.

    But they have said that they expect that gap to be shortened...by about a month since they have gotten more doses scheduled to come in.

    The whiskey spelling is a regional thing. The brits spell it with no e, the Irish spell it with an e. Of course the Irish way is the correct way. ;):popcorn:

    I never do 2:1 on my sugar syrup. Too sweet for me. It's more like 1:2 when I make stuff.

    Nope, never. "I am away with limited access to e-mail. If you require immediate assistance, please contact X." Even in the toxic workplace I was in once, this was never an issue.

    This may be the beginning of understanding what the taste/smell loss with COVID-19 was. There was a UK study that had people who were given brain scans and then later after having contracted COVID-19 were re-examined and it was discovered there was a reduction of grey matter and likely damage to areas of the brain including cognitive function, memory and the area which handles tastes/smells.

    Important to note this was a very preliminary and small sampling since it included people from a study that had already been examined pre-COVID. The scariest part is hearing that the imaging and damage is similar to what they then see in Alzheimer's patients.

    Hopefully this can in some way aid in brain mapping, or gene mapping, or something in that area. Maybe a silver lining.

    Kurt Angle is trending on Twitter. I initially thought the worst. But it was a viral video of a guy getting into a fight at work & giving the other guy German suplexes multiple times to win the fight.

    Jimmy Fallon is apparently a Rangers and Islanders fan. Which absolutely checks out with his ingratiating personality.

    You can't blame him - he got Thunderlornesplained by Socrates Aristotle Emmanuel Acho. No one walks away mentally whole from something like that.

    Jimmy Fallon has never realized that he isn't Adam Sandler.

    He’s everything bad about late night shows today. Overly scripted, lowest common denominator, boring, not funny. And I’m not even saying he’s not talented.

    That's not really fair. It's like killing a spider with a phone book, or killing a spider with an ICBM.

    He is actually just trying to be a fan of those teams. Just like he tries to honestly laugh at everything everyone ever said on his show. He just tries.

    I just want to say that neither Corden nor Fallon express any amount, magnitude of suckiness. Why? Because they BOTH SUCK TO THE MAX.

    And this has very little to do with the fact that they were both successors to my spirit animals.. haha
