  • Can someone please tell me, is this an HOA violation?


    Yes, for professionally written HOA rules, this is a clear violation.  The garage door must be able to close.  That door stops at the truck bed and foam board is used to replicate the look of a door.  The concept is humorous and well executed, but the neighbors are still well within their right to call the HOA, sheriff, city police, and town constables.  Perhaps the National Guard, FBI, or even CIA if the owner is a foreign national.

    Very nice @Botch - mine won’t be anywhere near that nice.  I’m using Baltic birch for the door faces and back as well.  I have a functional collection of hand tools that I get frustrated not having proper storage.  I hope to finish it by January, I need to get started on a nightstand for my daughter for Christmas later today.

    @Botch : sweet potato creme brûlée, I loosely followed this recipe:

    https://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/robert-irvine/sweet-potato-creme-brulee-recipe-1939819

    I did this in a larger crock rather than ramikans which made it more difficult.  I cut the cream to a pint because it was going to make way too much liquid in my opinion (volume I made was more than the sweet potatoes) and substituted vanilla for the vanilla beans.  I put the crock in a pan and filled with boiling water and then into the oven for 40 minutes.  I decided to temp the creme/egg mixture and it was only to 120F, so I covered it with foil to keep from drying it out and think it spent close to another hour in the oven with me temping it every 15 min.  I went until the liquid hit 160 which is recommended minimum custard temp as I didn’t want it to be full on runny.  When cooled and eating, the creme had a perfect custard/pudding like texture.  I brûlée’d the top with sugar under the broiler and then with a propane torch to finish, topped with candied pecans.  I served it like a side, but was definitely a dessert. I had this as a side at a restaurant in florida a few years ago and was definitely a different style than this, but I would make again for sure and might do it this week just because I have Monday/Tuesday off.

    Cussing...a lot of cussing.
    Don't you just hate it when you spend an hour ordering stuff, picking and choosing individual items and bundles and when you are finished and start the checkout and half the items in your cart disappear? Then you think, "no biggie, just one of those glitches" and then you go back and spend another few minutes trying to find the items that vanished but slowly (I'm dense) it finally dawns on you that they must have just updated their website with current inventory just before you went to checkout.

    Having a mug at my local brewery after hanging the Christmas lights. 

    At least one staple per light, many have two. I’ll post a picture of them on later, perfectly straight for my OCD. The previous owner had hooks up for Christmas lights, handy while hanging them but I can’t stand sloppy drooping lights. Those hooks are coming off when we repaint soon.

    Reading some news articles while waiting for some beef plate ribs to come off the Egg.  Nice Thanksgiving story linked below, couple families from Ukraine back together after many years of separation.  Lincoln, NE will likely benefit from this for many years in the future...

    My 90-y.o. neighbor to the North is the Come-Along King.  Long before our freak wind shear storm this last summer had subsided, he was wrapping log chains around damaged cottonwoods on the railroad property behind ours, and trying to pull them down away from our fences.  
    Three days later when Rocky Mountain Power was fixing our power lines, he was trying to pull out a 3'-dia stump, with the chain anchored around RMP's 1' power pole; they grabbed his arm and said, "No."   :)  
    He's the guy who still climbs up on his roof to winterize his swamp cooler.  At 2/3rds his age, I don't have the energy he does...
