Brown's fault I ended up in
Blood Bath and Beyond Bed Bath and
Beyond looking for the digital
meat thermometer he uses in his
show. The thermometer itself was easy to find, but oh … the
Pots and pans!
They still sell those things?
Even more surprising than a device which is nothing more than two
verticle heating coils, a spring, a knob and a switch is how
expensive they are! Top of the line model will set you
back $319.99 (tax not included).
$320 for a toaster‽
That better make some damn fine toast for that price.
I know I spent oh, the better part of an hour just hovering in the
kitchen wares section.
I blame Alton Brown.

The dates are the permanent links to that day's entries (or
entry, if there is only one entry). The titles are the permanent
links to that entry only. The format for the links are
simple: Start with the base link for this site: https://boston.conman.org/, then add the date you are
interested in, say 2000/08/01,
so that would make the final URL:
You can also specify the entire month by leaving off the day
portion. You can even select an arbitrary portion of time.
You may also note subtle shading of the links and that's
intentional: the “closer” the link is (relative to the
page) the “brighter” it appears. It's an experiment in
using color shading to denote the distance a link is from here. If
you don't notice it, don't worry; it's not all that
