Anything that is unrelated to elephants is irrelephant Anonymous - The problem with quotes on the internet is that you can never tell if they're genuine Winston Churchill, 1944 - Never argue with a fool. Onlookers may not be able to tell the difference. Mark Twain
I used to have a Mini but my legs looked awful in it so I traded it in for a Jaguar but I had to get rid of it after it ate the cat. After that, I tried a Beetle but George said he hated living in my garage so I bought a Citroen instead - that just left a bitter taste in my mouth. I then got myself a Chevrolet but it used to get through tons of hay and poo all over the place. Maybe I'll have more luck with an Escort ...

Oh don't get pissed off Matt. With every 2012 server we have deployed we load Classic Shell on it. It's free and just like 2008 or win 7 to use. Start, there's computer Management, Control Panel, My Computer, all your familiar friends!
Government can give you nothing but what it takes from somebody else. A government big enough to give you everything you want is big enough to take everything you've got, including your freedom.-Ezra Taft Benson

After reading Griff's comment about using red wine in chili paired with the blistering cold weather currently blanketing the surrounding area, I decided this would be a good night to make some chili and figured why not share opinions, thoughts, and then get into a proper fist fight about the use of tomatoes and onions (filthy heathens). Beans are acceptable only if they are pinto and added shortly before serving, never during the actual cooking. Plus tequila.
My recipe was originally based on this great one, Tom Westbrook - North Texas Red Chili[^]. After reducing the amount by 2/3 or so, I swap out the Lone Star for Shiner Bock or some Duchesse de Bourgogne. Then add a square or two of the darkest chocolate I can lay my hands on, add a single dried Carolina Reaper, and a handful of dried tepins, along with whatever other fiery pods I've got lying around. For those who have no idea what 'Japanese peppers' are, I've always assumed that he means Shishitos. Oh, and don't forget the tequila! The tequila is very important to the process.
Then the next day while things are reheating, I cook up a skillet of savory corn bread, shred some super sharp cheddar cheese and I'm good to go for a week of amazing eats.
