President of Iceland Would Ban Pineapple Pizza Topping

Monday, February 20th, 2017 | Offbeat and Weird with Comments Off on President of Iceland Would Ban Pineapple Pizza Topping

There are probably not too many people that would disagree with him. Iceland President  Guðni Th. Jóhannesson told a crowd that he would ban pineapple as a pizza topping if he could. The president was visiting a school where he told the students that if he could pass laws on his own that he would ban pineapple from being a pizza topping.

If you are wondering about Hawaiian Pizza. It appears to be a Canadian thing. Sam Panopoulos claims that he created the first Hawaiian pizza at the Satellite Restaurant in Chatham, Ontario, Canada in 1962.  Some people get mixed up and call this a Canadian but a Canadian is pepperoni, bacon and mushroom.

Just as an update. The Pizza Topping War has taken on a new front. We might have to join this fight.

The Pineapple Pizza war took another strange turn over the weekend. Let hope that this gets retired soon.

How to Easily Build a Box Garden

How to Easily Build a Box Garden

I recently built a box garden from scratch. I was surprised how easy it was to build and trust me I have virtually no skills when it comes to carpentry.  I really didn’t keep a list of how much the items cost. If you are worried about cost you can always price the items out. I shopped at Home Depot for my box garden construction materials.

My box garden is 8 ft long x 4 ft wide. I chose this because it fits into the space on my yard perfectly and you can’t build it too wider of your won’t be able to reach into it to tend to your plants. At 4 ft wide I will be able to reach the middle from either side.

Supplies Needed:

1 – 4x4x12 Fence Post
2 – 2x8x12 Boards
1 – Box of Deck Screws (44 screws used)

Tools Needed:

1. Power Drill
2. Level
3. Square
4. Skill Saw or Table Saw

Building the Box Garden:

A picture says 1,000 words. By looking at the picture below you should be able to see how easy it is to construct your box garden. Cut the Fence Post into even 2 ft pieces. I used left over pieces from another project so that is why mine don’t look even. You want the posts a little longer because you are going to sink them into the ground to give your box garden some stability. Next cut the Boards at 8 ft so you have 4 – 8 ft pieces and 4 – 4 ft pieces.

It’s just as simple as attaching your boards to your 4 corner posts. I used 2 screws on each board. Then attached the two inner posts to make the frame more sturdier and you have good to go. Notice I used smaller pieces on the end as my “outer” piece. Use your level and square tool to make sure everything is square and level (nice sentence).

build your own box garden

With your frame constructed dig out holes for your corner and middle posts so you can firmly attach your box garden to the ground. You want to make sure that’s its level again once you put your posts in the ground. This is what mine looks like.

This is the finished product after filling it up with soil and getting my tomatoes and peppers planted. If you are worried about using treated wood you can build with natural wood. I did much reading about leaching and I am not concerned. It’s a personal choice.

Newspaper Uses Alec Baldwin Photo Instead of Trump

Sunday, February 12th, 2017 | Offbeat and Weird with Comments Off on Newspaper Uses Alec Baldwin Photo Instead of Trump

Alec Baldwin has been killing it lately on Saturday Night Live playing President Donald Trump. So much so that a newspaper from the Dominican Republic used his photo instead of one of the real Trump. The newspaper called El Nacional corrected the image but not before it caught fire online.  The photo made it rounds on Twitter and now lives forever. No word on whether Trump was impressed or not.

Mediocre Spaghetti Dinner Causes Police Standoff

Saturday, February 11th, 2017 | Stupid People with Comments Off on Mediocre Spaghetti Dinner Causes Police Standoff

One thing I have learned in life is that when my wife takes time to make dinner for me I compliment it like it was greatest meal I have ever had in my life. Why would I say anything less and risk having to make my own dinner in the future? Jason Martin of Merrimack, NH should have taken this advice. Odds are he won’t be such a food critic in the future.

His girlfriend Jodi Ecklund made him a spaghetti dinner and asked his opinion on the meal and Jason thought it was just okay. Bad mistake. She didn’t take the criticism overly well and began to punch, and scratch. Jason did do one thing right and that get the hell out of there but Jodi decided to barricade herself in the apartment along with a couple of firearms.

Police arrived on the scene and although it’s not reported if they sampled her spaghetti or not they got about the same treatment as Jason. She offered to shoot them and told them they could enter the apartment because she had the safety off on the guns.

The stand off lasted a few hours before police gained access into the apartment. This Celebrity Chef ended up cooking up a few felonies and misdemeanors.

Skeleton Key Loot List in Destiny

Wednesday, February 8th, 2017 | Gamers with Comments Off on Skeleton Key Loot List in Destiny

If you have been playing Destiny lately you probably have a few extra skeleton keys in your inventory. Are you wondering what Strikes to to spend them on? There are obviously Destiny Strikes that you don’t want to be wasting keys on. We have been getting quite a few Imago Loop Hand Cannons of course with a terrible roll so we want to use our keys to get more. This lead us to try and put a list together of the Strike Specific loot you can get from opening chests with your skeleton keys. Here is a visual that shows you the skeleton key loot list in Destiny.

Skeleton Key Loot List in Destiny

Remember, this is just the sought after loot you can get from using your skeleton keys at the end of strikes. There is still a chance to get various Warlock Bonds, Titan Marks and Hunter Cloaks. Class gear. We like to use our skeleton keys either doing Heroic Strikes or Nightfall for a chance at better gear. We got two Imago Loops this week from The Undying Mind as a Heroic Strike. We also found out the hard way that if you are carrying five keys (the max) and get one it will to the postmaster. If you try to grab it from the postmaster with five in your inventory it will disappear. We did this by accident.
