What I Learned At Cop Camp - Long Island Weekly

There is always a way to be honest without being brutal.”   —   Arthur Dobrin

(Very true.  Too many people are brutally honest.  Some people think that life is too short to have to mince their words.  But, I think that life is too short to needlessly hurt people’s feelings.  If it takes an extra five to ten seconds to come up with more diplomatic words then I say:  please . . . take the time.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

How Do You Eat Healthy At a Steakhouse? - Prime 13 Woodfire Grill

Did Warren Buffett Go on a Stock-Buying Spree? 2 Key Dates to ...


(Hard to call this a stinky pun, because even a burnt steak is going to smell good!  I’m with the guys at the other table.  Steak, especially a good steak, should not need a steak sauce.  When you cook them well-done they’re much drier, and so much of the flavor gets cooked out.  I much prefer the unadulterated flavor of a juicy steak.  I know most people kind of inherit their steak preferences, but I also know that some cultural misconceptions come into play.  I know that the majority of Filipinos like their steaks well-done, but a good part of that is because cows are not indigenous to the Philippines.  But, pigs and chickens are!  Pork really has to be thoroughly cooked, or you can get trichinosis!  That can make you very sick.  And, of course under-cooked chicken can give you salmonella.  They just kind of employed their pork – and chicken – mentality to beef, which is understandable, but sad too.  I’m glad to be from a rare family!  If I’m splitting one with Carol, I will go medium-rare.  Yes.  I have gotten her to evolve!

No new clue words today.  Three of the jumbles appear to be new.  We’ve definitely seen “rubor” before.  I almost had to back into “nudge”.  I skipped over “deung”, thinking it might be dunge, which does come up as a valid Scrabble word, but I don’t think it’s a common word.  I’m not sure that I would’ve gotten the final answer without the NDE, so I’m glad that something gave me a nudge!  A fine eleven letter jumble for the answer letter layout.  Not obvious.

A fine dining cartoon!  Well, even a steak and chop house can be considered fine dining.  The main guy’s hair is a little dark, but I’m getting a Warren Buffett vibe.  Hey, great steaks do come from Omaha!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
