    We'll put our current house on the market when we close on the new one. Should sell in a day or two.

          Nice to have the closing date, even nicer when it's all done but that's a huge step. Pretty stressful for us, lots of work to get the old house ready for market etc. Timing is huge, we got 10k over asking.

            My son said the Dean of the school asked him "What is your plan in case you don't get accepted into a medical school"? He answered that he would keep working on his applications etc., the Dean then said "What if you didn't have to do all that"? and then told him he was accepted. Pretty cool, he's earned his Bachelor's degree 100 percent paid for by his G.I. Bill, so that's a plus.

              Yep I did. I caught it right after it started it’s climb to 2800. I threw some 50 bucks in and currently am up about 40 percent in my portfolios in part because of that

                My buddy came in from Chicago yesterday for a visit. Some of you will recognize these buckets of pure deliciousness so may not. He was bribing me. It worked!

                        It is a famous sandwich in Chicago. Thinly sliced beef in a seasoning type auju. With hot peppers served on a bun. You can get them on most any street vendor cart and at mom and pop diners all over the city. There are two main players on the chain side Portellos and the pictured Buckets from Bs. They are both excellent and have rabid followers each claiming the crown. I like them both! You ever want a treat Portellos has a website and you can order a Kit of I think makings for 8 sandwiches for right at 80 bucks delivered anywhere. The box comes frozen complete with directions and everything you need including the special bread. It is well worth it. They are yummy. Give it a try, you will be shocked at how good they are. And beware many folks around the country claim to serve Eyetalian beef sandwiches but I can assure you the only place to get a good one is in Chicago. I always try the imitation ones in search of a good one, no luck thus far.

                          Thanks for the heads up, I will try them. Went to Chicago once and was after deep dish pizza, didn't know about these sammies.

                              Be sure and spoon some auju onto the bun. It is the only way to eat them! In Chicago they ask you if you want your sandwich wet! And they actually call it gravy. I might be a redneck but I figure kind of like beer, if you can see thru it, it ain’t beer! Well if you can sip it thru a straw it ain’t gravy! Hah! Man they are good. Be sure and fluff your beef! It is key. Que Karl

                                      Love hot mustard but the horseradish does clear your sinuses out.

                                          Philippe's has been making French Dips in LA for 100+ years.
                                          Their house mustard has mellowed some since my youth :lol:
                                          It literally used to take your breath away.
