Re: What to do with cauliflower snow

Seeing this too late. I really only use it as a rice substitute (e.g., with a curry). I’ve done cauliflower pizza crust and cauliflower oatmeal, but the rice substitute is the only one I’ve repeated. Oh, and I guess mashed, but I haven’t done that in a while!

Re: Spirit's Snowdrop Ultra 55

I really enjoyed reading this report! Loved the pictures, loved the commentary and reflections. Love the buckle!

And I think it's great that you donated your old medals to such a worthy cause.

Congratulations! Definitely not a quitter!

Re: Ottawa jogger in condo ad wins precedent-setting privacy fight

interesting! i'm increasingly disturbed by the number of times this happens in public events, although not always for commercial purposes. i guess my bigger concern is that even when this is done legally (e.g., an explicit waiver saying your image might be used), it seems like it's hard to opt-out u...

i'm on the fence about the chain one because i understand their intent, but it does seem like it could dampen the moment for other runners behind them (maybe i'm overly concerned about the finish line photo :lol:). the second one i think is ADORABLE. i laughed out loud at the comparison to the super...

Re: Boston Monday

it's great that we can track their times, but i wish there was some way to capture the 'ridiculous enthusiasm'. :D nothing like being a spectator at the boston marathon - which i could be there to see it!

that heartbreak hill camera is great, though - thanks for the link to that, jwolf.

Re: WOW...Utter BS

Just to clarify - I don't think they're necessarily silly, I just think there's a market for them and so it would be inherently money-driven. "Ploy" is probably a bit pejorative for what I'm trying to say - but demand and money are surely factors. If women didn't want them and races were l...

Re: WOW...Utter BS

The organizers are just using it as a ploy to make money and make it seem like they care about feminism. a ploy to make money? one could argue that this would deter men from running the race, and there is a ton of competition for running races for them to choose from, so it seems like a bad strategy.
