    What's the flag on tied to the tail for?
    Tail bag, it keeps them from rubbing their tails out, other horses eating the tails, and keeps the tails from getting sun bleached, damaged, dirty, and knotted.  Basically to help them grow longer healthier and better looking tails.

    The manes will be braided for similar reasons.

    Taking advantage of the cool weather. Breaking in the new portable smokehouse. Well it’s portable if you have a tractor 👍




    That John Deere is not aging well. . . I love the smokehouse!

    What a let down. Was really hoping these were LED lights on the tail.

    I got Big John stored away for the winter. Will have it back out next week when it’s back up in the high 80’s 👍

    For those of you who frequent Asheville, Tupelo Honey opened a sister store in Columbus.  No steak on the menu but the shrimp and grits are the best I have had.

    And just like that, there is now something worth visiting Columbus for…

    I like how they lumped Durham in with Raleigh... finger on the scales much? Seriously though I am sure Durham is getting better, it is surrounded by great booming communities and working people are surely snatching up the affordable housing.
      To your earlier comment though I can't see any reason why someone would set out to visit Durham, or Cbus.

    What’s funny is that I much prefer living in Durham to Raleigh.  We have better restaurants, and the Performing Arts Center downtown is a gem.  

    But I agree it’s not really a place people think to make a special trip to see.  It’s not like Sonoma or DC.  And I am totally OK with that.

    As for affordable housing, well…

    When we bought our current place about ten years ago, nice homes in the area were selling for about $105 per sq ft.  Now it’s more than twice that.

    I used to visit Durham for work starting 25+ years ago.  It’s probably been 6-7 years since I’ve been there, but in that timespan the downtown had a significant transformation for the better.  Super walkable as I recall and some great bars and restaurants.  Not as college-y as Chapel Hill and more relaxed than Raleigh, as I remember it.

    I don’t think I’ve ever been to Ohio tbh. I did fly into Cincinnati for work, but the airport and the office were both on the Kentucky side of the river.

    I am a little shocked at how high San Jose landed on that list though, but every website has their own ranking algorithms.

    Just finished adding anti-freeze to all the vehicles and covering the water spigots with the foam covers. 

    Also used that time to covertly add colored lights around the front porch railings. Waiting to see how long it takes for my girlfriend to notice.. she HATES colored lights.. and she also dislikes “redneck Christmas decor”… ie porches outlined in lights…

    Never visited either.  Just googled Lillington and... population 3600.  LOL indeed. I bet it's a budding metropolis!

    if 129 works for you, do that and chill the steak a little before the sear

    Probably in the minority here, but I generally shy away from cast iron for the sear after sous vide because I find it cooks the steak more than I’d like. My MO is generally to sous vide at 127 and then torch for the finish to give me a nice Med rare. If searing in a pan, I would further lowering the heat on the SV.
