i am pondering something different for our Christmas dinner. no ham/turkey. I did a rib roast last year. don't want anything too fussy because i have to transport. is holiday meatloaf a thing?
*googles "paula deen meatloaf"* - holly #ravingfangirl
*laughing* i've done this search before. http://ff.im/1ksVM0 - holly #ravingfangirl
ooh, Pioneer Woman must have some good meatloaf recipes... - holly #ravingfangirl
aaaand i already have it bookmarked. perhaps i should be looking at what i've already saved. >.> - holly #ravingfangirl
What about duck? - Andy
hmm i've never cooked duck. - holly #ravingfangirl
In my teens, our fancy holiday dinner, since none of us particularly liked turkey, was stuffed pork chops. All I remember of the recipe is that you start with 1" pork chops. - bentley
ooooh, pork chops are good too. - holly #ravingfangirl
Whatever meal you decide to cook becomes a thing. It's your holiday, enjoy it how you want to. And yeah, meatloaf is awesome. - Mary Carmen
Smothered pork chops! - Rochelle *boom* Hartman
We sometimes do lasagna, but my dad has said that they used to have meatloaf for Christmas when he was a kid. - Katy S
shape it like a reindeer head, stick broken pretzels on top for antlers, a cherry tomato for a very shiny nose? - Starmama
My vegetarian relatives often serve lasagna, and there was a vegetarian meatloaf-esque dish I've made in the past (even the meat lovers enjoyed it). One year I was at a Christmas dinner where the main course was beef Wellington. Sooooo good. - Corinne L
We usually have a lasagna. Since my cousin is vegetarian, the lasagna is veggy too. - Heather

I saw that this morning I might get it though I have no idea how it works. - Steve C Team Marina
I'm not sure how it works either, but I pre-ordered one. Estimated delivery, Dec 3rd. - Greg "Cashmere Slim"
We don't really need this and don't have a TV. Would it work with a projector? There's an HDMI output on something. I plug the computer into that to watch junk. - Anika
Anika, maybe. In your setup, The Stick would be replacing your computer. Are you currently streaming from your computer hard drive or do you have wireless internet. Your projector would display the video signal, but does your projector support HD? Also, The Stick doesn't have speakers, it's using the speakers on the TV. - Greg "Cashmere Slim"
I'm thinking this is just like the Chrome Cast but it seems to come with a remote when in the Chrome Cast the device you're streaming *from* is the remote. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart
It looks like the Fire TV Stick works with amazon tablets only when you want to show a stream from your device to the stick: "Fling movies and TV shows from your phone or tablet—Fling movies and TV shows from your Fire tablet or Fire phone to Fire TV Stick, turning your TV into the primary screen and freeing up your phone or tablet to provide playback controls, a customized display for... more... - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart
Also this: "Mirror your phone or tablet display—Wirelessly mirror your tablet display to your Fire TV Stick from Fire tablets, Fire phone, and Miracast-enabled phones or tablets including devices from Motorola, Samsung, LG, and Google without any additional apps or software." http://phx.corporate-ir.net/phoenix... - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart
I will say it's nice that the stick doesn't need a separate power cord. But I don't like that I can't use Chrome Cast on it. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart
The media unit is connected to the projector (this is the one we have: http://www.amazon.com/Epson-P...). When I plug my laptop in it via the HDMI port, it's usually to play a disk or stream from online sites that lack apps on my blu-ray player or Xbox. Our sound system is connected to the media box... more... - Anika
Does the mirroring thing mean that if I'm watching Dramafever or FUNimation on my tablet or phone, I can have that play through the stick? - Anika
Yes but it mirrors using 'mirrorcast' so the phone has to be able to do that first. The stick should work with the HDMI port directly on your projector. :) - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
I bought one. Figured I shouldn't pass it up at $20. Even if it doesn't work with the projector, one day I may be able to afford a TV. - Anika
Let me know if it works out! I'm curious. :) - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
It works perfectly. It's plug and play right out the box. The only snag was spending nearly 6 minutes trying to open the cover on the remote to put in the batteries. The stick plugs right into the HDMI port on the receiver and everything shows up via the projector. It was so easy, even to add apps. - Anika

You Can't Achieve Equality by Expecting Everyone to be the Same
"Speaking up or talking about hard issues like racial bias or diversity, or calling for attentiton to inherent problems, makes it possible I'll misspeak and say something quotable where I don't want it. It's instead much easier to sit quiet and let other people fight their battles - to watch big conflicts and flareups remotely, trivializing someone else's experience, as something that's not happening here. But even in the 'burbs, and in our corporate offices, there are issues. We may not see unarmed men shot 12 times and killed in our hallways, but there are opportunities to bring down or build up our peers daily, and most of us aren't doing much to aid their quiet struggles." - Louis Gray from Bookmarklet

Young, Black and Frisked by the N.Y.P.D.
"These experiences changed the way I felt about the police. After the third incident I worried when police cars drove by; I was afraid I would be stopped and searched or that something worse would happen. I dress better if I go downtown. I don’t hang out with friends outside my neighborhood in Harlem as much as I used to. Essentially, I incorporated into my daily life the sense that I might find myself up against a wall or on the ground with an officer’s gun at my head. For a black man in his 20s like me, it’s just a fact of life in New York. Here are a few other facts: last year, the N.Y.P.D. recorded more than 600,000 stops; 84 percent of those stopped were blacks or Latinos. Police are far more likely to use force when stopping blacks or Latinos than whites. In half the stops police cite the vague “furtive movements” as the reason for the stop. Maybe black and brown people just look more furtive, whatever that means. These stops are part of a larger, more widespread problem — a... more... - Paul Buchheit from Bookmarklet
Horribly sad. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
It's institutionalized racism. It's when you cross the street with your kids because you see a black or brown guy walking towards you, regardless of how he's dressed or what he's doing. When you lock your car doors because the color of the neighborhood changes, regardless of the economic stature of the area. You see 3 or more black or brown guys hanging out and call them "thugs" or... more... - Anika

Considering that only about 5% of stops (regardless of color) result in arrests, it's hard to imagine how they even justify this practice. - Gabe

I am doing good. Services are not until next week. I do not think I will be able to really grieve until the services and events are over, and people leave. Walking on the greenway helps.

The LA Metro charges $1.50 per trip on any bus line, so if you have to take three buses in one trip, it'll cost $4.50 one way. But there's a $5 day trip pass, a $20 seven day pass, and a $75 30 day pass. I wish there was an auto-upgrade system so your smart card could pay per trip until the fourth trip of the day, (cont)
which would automatically push you into having a day pass. Then the same principle over the next seven days and thirty days too. - Andrew C (✔)
But this doesn't quite solve upgrading to the EZ-pass, which is a smart card + sticker to get you a monthly pass for both LA Metro and all (almost all?) the other transit companies in town, even those that don't have the same smart card tech. - Andrew C (✔)
Yeah, they definitely need to standardize all of that. I can't remember how it worked in Chicago, but they really should do it how NYC does it: one card to rule them all. - Victor Ganata
Well, it only took the Bay Area some 20-odd years to all line up behind the Clipper card, right? - Andrew C (✔)
In Vancouver, there's only one public transit company, which is overseen by the province but has some local control somehow. (But even then, they tried to split that into multiple companies per transit mode - train, bus, boat - because I think they were trying to split up the effects of union strikes or union bargaining. Stupid.) - Andrew C (✔)
I'm pretty sure that an Oyster card for the Tube will only take up to the amount of a day ticket. - Marina's Godmother :-)
The Bay Area is tricky because of the relatively decentralized government structure (I think it's like nine different counties?) but L.A. County doesn't really have that excuse. They should at least be able to standardize things run by the L.A. M.T.A. - Victor Ganata
LA DOT just started taking TAP cards. On my commute, on 3 streets, I run across 3 different bus lines. I'm not sure that MTA covers all of them since some are in different municpalities and DPW runs other. I would love one card I could use on all of those bus/shuttle systems. - Anika
For that matter, I'm not sure the Clipper card covers *all* Bay Area transit. (I do know that, if I was going to travel much, it would make sense to drive down to buy a Senior Clipper card--you can only buy them in person. You save a bundle, esp. on BART.) - Walt Crawford
Victor: Clipper doesn't cover all nine Bay Area counties--AFAICT, the North Bay's not included, and I'm not sure about Contra Costa (except for BART). It's basically four counties: SF, Alameda, San Mateo, Santa Clara. Which is confusing enough--that's probably more than three dozen governmental entities. - Walt Crawford
Anika: what about EZ Pass, then? - Andrew C (✔)
I don't know. I only heard of EZ Pass on Monday or Tuesday, so I haven't looked into it yet. - Anika
BTW, bump because I just learned that Alameda County transit, at least, auto-upgrades your Clipper card to a day pass instead of charging for a fourth one-way ticket in one day. - Andrew C (✔)
Since I rode the bus yesterday after recent fare changes: It's $1.75 for a one way trip. 35 cents for a transfer. A day pas is $2.50 according to the sign on the bus, though their fare update from a few months ago said it was supposed to be $7. I think that's only for TAP cards for rail included. - Anika
According to Metro, transfers are for transfers to non-Metro services; you can't get a paper transfer for Metro-to-Metro. A TAP card allows a transfers ("one-way", not sure how they determine what is and isn't one way) within two hours. http://www.metro.net/riding... - Andrew C (✔)
I'm so confused. We got paper transfers for Metro-to-Metro yesterday, though the bus driver gave it to me for free. - Anika

'Saga' Is Like 'Star Wars,' but Unfilmable and Brilliantly Bonkers - The Atlantic
"We're a long way removed from 1977. The bonkers chance 20th Century Fox took on Star Wars—which took place in a vast, complicated, original sci-fi universe—would be near-impossible to accomplish these days without using some established property as collateral. Forget Saga's occasionally visceral violence or sexual frankness; it's basically impossible to launch anything this ambitious in a global studio system. Guardians of the Galaxy was applauded this year for its inventiveness, but it was shepherded to screens under the hugely popular Marvel brand and quite rigidly adhered to its storytelling formulas. Twenty-four issues in (and with no sign of slowing down), Saga still manages to zig most times you think it'll zag." - Andrew C (✔) from Bookmarklet
Saga is great. - Jenny H. from Android
