My LG dishwasher is total crap.  Aside from some internal PCB burning up and nearly setting fire to my house, it never cleaned well and always had weird quirks.  I'll never do LG appliances again.

Between the tailgate party and home use, I've tried every single brand of TV over the past 15 years, and none have been as consistently high quality, and reliable, as Samsung.  That's all we have in the house now.

But I hear some of their appliances are crap.

I've seen lots of testimonials and 3rd party reports that say Kitchenaid is good for dishwashers.  badgerfan's is actually the first and only negative review  I've heard, but I trust and like badgerfan, so I'll certainly consider his opinion.

I have a couple of friends with Bosch dishwashers that like them well enough, and you fellers have had good things to say as well.  In general I sort of get a feeling that Bosch might be a bit overhyped, but then I look at their prices and for what I'm looking for, they're right in line with the other brands I'm considering, so really if it's good and reliable and people like it and it's an "overhyped" name brand that doesn't actually cost any more than its less hyped competitors, then how can it really be considered overhyped?

Ultimately there's zero doubt I'm overthinking this.  But I'm an engineer, and this is exactly what my people created the internet for to begin with.  So there you have it.

kidding of course.     Welcome, Shiner! 
Hope you are doing well this year, or at least better than some of us.

Could be better... could be worse.   At least I don't live in Houston.

Been an interesting year to say the least....

No gathering is complete without representation of Aggy.

Which reminds me, are any of these new-fangled Shiner beers any good?  I've seen the commercials, Shiner varieties are popping up like a Sonic drink fountain.  Bear in mind, I live in God's country, so it's not like I can ask the rancher next door about the new Shiner macros, as he is likely too well churched to indulge in such.

Should I expand beyond the reliable Bock?

Meanwhile in Houston, we are thinking "at least we don't live in Puerto Rico!"
Yes, it could always be worse. 
Glad you found the Porch and good job to your Aggies on that last OT game.  Pretty good one there.

Not really sure since I haven't had any.  I've been sticking primarily to Dallas area craft brews.... so my knowledge of said line of beers has diminished recently.  

But I'm not against taking this as an opportunity for research.

Sumlin had 1st and goal at around the 10yd line, with 26 seconds left... and essentially chose to play for the tie rather than take a shot into the endzone to win it outright.
At the time I nearly threw something at my TV in disgust.  Afterwards I see that Sumlin was probably telling himself he had the Arky's right where he wants them.  OT has been good to the Ags.... particularly against the pigs.

Yo Shiner.  Good to see you around.

95-- I like the Shiner Bohemian Black.  Kosmo is pretty good too.  I haven't tried the IPA since that's not a style I like very much.  Their wit wasn't my favorite, and now that Celis White is back, there's no need to drink any other Belgian-style witbier out there.   Sort of the same on their Oktoberfest, it's not my favorite and now that Live Oak is in cans, I don't need to get any other (American) Oktoberfests, either.

Thanks for the recommendation.  And thanks for sparing me the lecture of how my pedestrian taste buds should grow up and move past macro swill varieties.

Shiner isn't as good as it was when I was in college, too much use of corn adjuncts.  But I'll always have a soft spot for it, so no lectures forthcoming from me.

If you truly like American light (in color not calories) lagers though, there are plenty of craft options that are similar in style to the macros, and taste a heck of a lot better.  Texas specifically has a ton of really good craft pilsners being brewed these days.

They won't let me give blood anymore. The burnt orange color scares the hell out of the doctors.

How weird, I was just thinking about you either yesterday or the day before, for the first time in I don't know how long.  And then, like the devil, you appear.  

If your boys can't beat us this year, y'all never will.

My guess is we don't.  Which should seal Sumlin's fate I might add.

Because having a 3-1 record is just unacceptable.  A&M has a way of burning down its own house.

I don't want to think about anyone in your bedroom.

What's the 3-1 record?

Evidently it's a firing offense at A&M.

One thing I've noticed forever, and for some reason it hit me like a ton of bricks at work today - Anytime someone has a baby the first thing women talk about is what?....  you guessed it, how much the damn thing weighed.  And they are all interested in this factoid, while men just kinda nod as if some disposable information just went right in and right out.

I mean, what is it, a bass?

Sumlin won't be fired for what he's done in the month of September.  We're the September National Champions afterall.  It's what he has done (and will do) in the other months that will be his undoing.

Ah the SEC.  It's already cost A&M one natty.  And now Sumlin will join Nick Saban's graveyard of coaches that would likely have done well in other circumstances.  Both Dabo and Jimbo would be in the graveyard by now too if they were in the SEC.
Sorry about all that.  14 teams.  Only 1 will rise up.  Saban in your conference.  And a fan base that somewhere down the line decided its school should be a blue blood force.
Good luck with all that.

Saban can only account for one loss per year for the Aggies.  That won't be Sumlin's undoing either.

why is the porch so vacant?  
is the quoted post being immortalized or something?  fearful of trying to end on a positive note and failing?
