    Your friendly HF Bruins food critic suggests you try this

    Dalessandro's Steaks and Hoagies. Philadelphia, PA

    It is located in Roxborough ( where all the TV towers are ) and worth it.

    Got the re-appraisal of my car yesterday afternoon.

    I did just under $4k in damage and I didn't even hit the actual car.

    This was an expensive first time mistake but at least no one was hurt.

    To carry on about Alton Brown, his "Romancing the Bird" episode was great. Lots of info about brining and his crazy relatives all had a cameo. But the next episode, a "behind the scenes" mockumentary about the use of Thanksgiving leftovers to feed the crew after a 2" snowstorm left all of Georgia paralyzed was hysterical. My all time favorite Food Network episode.

    Honorable mention goes to the episode where he smoked a salmon in a cardboard box using zip ties, a bakers rack, a hot plate, and a cast iron skillet.

    Those were the heyday of Food Network, before it became all game shows. You could really learn something.

    That’s the important thing.

    Still don’t have my truck back, either.

    Yeah if you want to experience a real nightmare cause an accident that results in injury to the other party. Ouch. Literally.

    It is the beginning of fair season here in northeastern CT. Tomorrow night the Brooklyn Fair, the oldest continuously active agricultural fair in the USA opens. I used to eat my way across the grounds but now I just check out the animals and the lumberjack contests such as axe throwing & cross cut sawing. Yes this is what we do for fun out here in the sticks. :)

    Been on the receiving end that resulted in some nasty whiplash. (my current accident was the first time I was at fault, I've had 2 others that I was not at fault for, both hits from behind/side).

    Not fun

    Here is a vid of my cousin's kid filling in in goal with some Bruins and other NHL'ers yesterday.



    I talked to her today and she said that he doesn't get excited about much, but he was on cloud 9 all day.

    The guys were great to him and he felt really confident. He knew they were taking it easy on him early, but as the skate wore on he could tell they were putting a little more effort in, once they realized he could handle things a bit.

    At the end, the Bruins guys went to their locker room and he and the other NHL'ers -- Eichel most prominent, used a different one.

    He said Eichel was awesome to him and that all the guys were cool.

    My cousin asked him if he asked for any autographs and he said;

    "no, that would be unprofessional"
    LOL

    The funniest part was as they were all filing out of the locker room, a bunch of kids were getting autographs and he was like..

    "dude, you're wasting your time with me"

    Regardless of whether he plays after HS, he'll always have this, which is pretty cool.

    He’s probably the best celebrity chef doing a “how to” demonstration of sorts. Everything he uses and does is practical and gives me a sort of i could totally do this feeling.

    'Horrifying': Delivery man attacked 75-year-old woman with mallet, set her on fire, police say

    BOCA RATON, Fla. — A Florida woman died Tuesday after being attacked by a delivery man inside her home Monday morning, police said. Evelyn Udell, of Boca Raton, was just a few days shy of her 76th birthday when she was killed.

    “It’s just unbelievable, horrifying,” said a neighbor, Karen Bransdorf.

    “I couldn’t imagine the details would come out the way they did,” said another neighbor, Bobbi Cohen.

    Police arrested the delivery man, Jorge Lachazo, shortly after the attack.

    According to the police report, Lachazo was working for a contractor, delivering a washer and dryer the Udells had bought at Best Buy.

    Police said Lachazo was supposed to be showing Udell how the appliances worked, but instead he grabbed a mallet and hit her over the head before setting her on fire.

    This is pure HF gold. I love sports in general and hockey in particular because it’s FUN. I had fun reading that post. THANK YOU.

    Continued success to your cousin’s son!!!

    I’ve said this before, and I’ll say it again - WTF is wrong with people???

    We need more people like the subject of the first post and fewer people like the subject of the second post.

    Just my opinion...

    Oh man, that's rough. It's crazy how expensive it is to fix car damage these days.

    Ooooo...another Quiet Corner resident!! :)

    I used to go to Woodstock but it is just too crowded now, especially since they started hiring acts like this for entertainment. If I go it will be to watch my niece ride, I can get in through the back entrance which is always less crowded parking wise.

    so...have been thinking about doing this for quite some time but I wanted to make sure I was in the proper emotional and spiritual state to do so.

    I was put up for adoption in 1969 and while being adopted was never a secret in our house, the information Mum and Dad showed both my sister(also adopted) and I was terribly limited in it`s scope. From what I understand, the amount of information an adopting parent now receives pales in comparison to way back then. I have never held any resentments, anger, sense of abandonment towards my biological parents. I have always believed that putting a child up for adoption is one of the most selfless things someone can do.

    I have never tried to locate my biological parents or sibling that I know I have based on the records I was shown many years ago. Some strange occurrences over the past few weeks have inspired me to do so, not to "replace" my late parents in any way shape or form but simply to try and find out more about my medical history and "maybe" meet my BP`s if they are still alive. I work with a woman who in the last month located her birth mother via Ancestry and then a friend in Halifax told me the same, thought to myself there must be some kind of a message in all of this.

    I contacted CAS (Children`s Aid Society) in Ottawa and filled out as much of paperwork I could and sent them all legal identification documents of mine to get the ball rolling.

    The process they said was once my identification has been certified, they will send me copies of all the medical records then I would have to fill out and sign a waiver form putting my name and the same information I sent them into their database so if anyone is searching for me they have full permission to contact me if they so wish.

    Fully understand that outside of my medical records, there is always a chance nobody contacts me and I am at a good place in my life emotionally that I could handle this.

    I shall reveal more if anything comes of it

    The Mythbusters episode where he helped the hosts cook an entire Thanksgiving meal using nothing but a 70's vintage Eldorado convertible was great:
