    CESSPOOL in Main Forums menu

    I posted as a new topic in Cesspool that the Main Forum link redirects to and Mt. Rushmore. Maybe it s on purpose. In case not. Here are some screenshots, which I still have to do in Chrome, because they still do not work in Firefox (both mobile).

    Functionality changes?

    In the past week or so, I've noted two changes that affect how I have posted. The first is minor: the option to Delete a posted Comment is no longer available. There are times when I post something, and then I see the Reply at the end of a thread as though I'd never hit Post. Afterward, I learn...

    Pat Grande, RIP

    I do not know if Pat Grande ever visited The Boneyard, but the attached article says that she attended 10 Women's Final Fours, so perhaps some here knew her. I came to this news by way of knowing her brother. I am active on the Men's Basketball Board, but have never posted here. If there are...

    OT: XL Center's 'silver lining' Neil Young considers the newer, corporate-moneyed arenas soulless, and too expensive & cumbersome for mounting a tour within the timeframe & relaxed vibe he prefers. He instead wants to play "barns" (older, not-yet-razed...

    How long before you switch to new cell phone? And why?

    My last few phones have had major failures, requiring replacement. This one is different. It's a 14 month old Moto G5+, which has stopped sending Voice Mail notifications and won't get me to the necessary screen to clear cache ever since the upgrade from Android 7.1.1 to 8.1. Not major, but...

    Where to meet Stepmom for lunch?

    I'm in Westville, New Haven, and she's in West Hartford near Bloomfield border off Mountain Road. Is GoldBurgers in Newington worth my 48 minutes to her 22? Is it comfortable enough for a "we don't see each other enough" catch up with someone who just turned 75? Where else? We've done Maggie...

    Used up my CBS All Access trial last month. My only friend who might have cable & interest* in the game is 30 miles away & may or may not be busy. WHERE in New Haven would be good to go? Again, I am missing walkable Delaney's. HOW to do some sketchy form of streaming? I know it's been...

    But, really, my post is like very important

    Cooking with Bourbon

    BBQ sauce recipe calls for a cup of bourbon, as one of a number of ingredients including molasses, jalapeño pepper, garlic, black bean paste. I'm thinking that because it cooks over time, a higher quality Bourbon is just a waste of money. What quality of bourbon do you use? What price point...
