The worst of it is, the pastrami is really, really good there. That sandwich is the ONLY reason I still enjoy trips to Las Vegas. Otherwise, you can keep the whole fershlugginer place. It's not really my cup 'o tea, but remains very popular with the other two inhabitants of this household.

The best pastrami sandwich I've found so far is at the Cool Deli. Cool is a tiny town in Northern California which is comprised mostly of ranches and one intersection where highways 49 and 193 meet. The deli is at the intersection, next to the general store.

I love me a good pastrami. There was a place near where my grandmother lived in Altadena, CA that had this killer pastrami on rye. I was just a kid, so there's a good chance my memory's all askew and that the sandwich was total trash, but I loved it. Grandma would take my sister and I down for a sandwich at least once a visit during the Summer. That and the Hamburger Hamlet. All these memories flooding back....

Ahhhhh. Hamburger Hamlet, an idea whose time came and went. We had one here in Palm Springs, but it closed a few years ago. I just checked their website, and there are only two locations left in California. Sad.

I had my first pastrami sandwich at a place called Don's Delicatessen in Westchester, CA (near the L.A. Airport). It changed my life.


I'm not short. I'm concentrated awesome!

I have never eaten pastrami in my whole life, my husband enjoys turkey pastrami that we get at the supermarket. It looks odd and fatty to me in any version and I avoid it.

Well DUH!! :lol: It's the fat that makes it good, and pastrami made from turkeys just ain't the same. (I never claimed it was a health food. :lol:)

There are a couple of spendy apps that I purchased but mostly I wait until they go on some super sale thing.

I cannot conceive of a calculator that would cost a C-note. Wow.

The ONLY thing that would drag me to NYC are the delis. I have always wanted to go on a Pastrami Sandwich tour of their delis. Makes me hungry just thinking about it.

I too like to grab up the ones on sale. That 10 apps per day, for 10 days at $0.10 per app that the Android Market was selling before Christmas found me spend ing a couple bucks. Got some nice apps, and a couple not really so great.

In stores here it is now $80 for the Construction Master Pro, but I see it is even cheaper at Amazon. It does great stuff construction related, like spitting out stud lengths on a rack (sloped) wall, calculating pitches in inches and degrees, volumes of cylinders, adding and multiplying in fractional inches, etc. Helps keep the brain cramps at bay.

Don't forget that NYC has some fantastic museums, and the people watching is fun too. ;)

I paid for the ad-free version of that Scrabble game we play, but I think that was only $1.99 or so. If something was useful enough, $10 wouldn't seem too expensive to me, either, though.

But, I've been looking at the comments on those Audubon apps for Android, and I think I'm going to pass. At least for now. Apparently, they only work on Android v2, not Honeycomb or Ice Cream Sandwich. My old, dying cell phone runs v2, so it would be ok on that, but I plan to upgrade that phone soon. My tablet runs Honeycomb, and whatever new phone I end up with will most likely run on that or ICS.

I too payed for the ad free Word Feud, very much worth it. I wish that the people that do Scrabble would offer one, I would pay up in a heartbeat.

Strange that an app would only operate on the older operating systems, as there are very few of them left out there compared to the newer ones purchased.

You betcha'!!

This was shot on my iPhone on our most recent trip to Las Vegas last week. That sandwich actually fed three of us.

:shock:
That is one heck of a stack of yummy looking meat. :)

How does it do when you're trying to identify a bird? I've got iBird Pro on my Thrive (Honeycomb 3.2), but it's basically a bird book with an illustrated (and limited) index. 924 birds, but some peculiarities - you have to look for "kestrel", not "sparrowhawk" for instance. If you search for "finch", it does give you birds with "finch" as part of the name, like "Goldfinch" or "chaffinch" at least. And it will suggest similar species if you try one.

I see that app is the same cost, but gets a slightly higher rating. With lots of these phone apps, they seem to rush them out, and then take forever doing the badly needed upgrades.

*drool* There is nothing in this world as good as an honest NYC deli pastrami sandwich. There used to be a fairly good replica of a NYC deli near the Mosconi Center in San Francisco, but the locals didn't appreciate it enough and it closed. That was a sad day.

I dunno, a couple chunks of pastrami that came off my smoker were pretty darn decent. ;)

I assume they corn the turkey, then smoke it, just as you do with a beef brisket to get real pastrami. Even though it might be good, there is no way it would taste the same. Real pastrami is a wonderful taste treat (if you are a meat eater, or course).

While Grandma would take us to that deli, Grandpa's haunt was the Hamburger Hamlet on Lake St in Pasadena. We'd have a "guys lunch out" without the dames and go for burgers. Once, he ordered a slice of lemon meringue pie for a dessert. I had never had LMP before and was a little put off by the size of the meringue, so I opted for a hot fudge sundae instead. Grandpa ordered me to have a bite of the pie, just so I'd know what I was missing. Ended up I ate the pie and he had the sundae. Lemon Meringue pie has been my favorite ever since.

I've never had a desire to go to Vegas. Just not my thing.

I scored a bunch of those apps, too, while they were on that pre-Christmas deal.

Ah, that's pretty specialized. The most expensive calculator I ever used was one that was specifically for celestial navigation back in the 80's. It was about $1500. :shock:

Don't forget that NYC has some fantastic museums, and the people watching is fun too. ;)

Museums, OK. That would be a draw. People watching? Yes, I like people watching, but that's an awful lot of people to watch. To me, that's a bit much.


I tend to ramble. Feel free to put me on ignore.

AND, my first MMQ in forever long time. I did not catch up in the last thread at all, but I've made up my mind to stay caught up in this one. :)
Of course, I have some time this morning, and I rarely have time, so we'll see how long this lasts.

I have missed you guys though. And I think I'll try hanging around more. :) Now that I have a phone with internet, I can check in during odd times of the day, without needing to be at home at my desk.

Infatuation is a good word. It's more like eating really cheap chocolate for your whole life then having the opportunity to eat the really good stuff. Cheap cigars v. Havanas. Gut rot whiskey v. Single malt well aged stuff. Seeing pictures of Yosemite v. seeing the real thing. Etc, etc, etc.

^^ that.

Evening all! First day on the new job and so far I LOVE it. Love the shorter drive to work and really like all the people there so far. AND I like the fact that I get full shifts instead of puny little 4hr cwap.

Yay! I'm glad you love your new job.

The second time was just yesterday. I've mentioned here before that my dreams are always *very* vivid, but I don't even know how to describe yesterday's dream. Well, except, it wasn't a dream. It felt so amazingly real! I think Ashley came back to visit me...

I don't doubt that possibility at all. What a great experience. :)

Chief, the video that you linked to is one of Eldad's videos. He has a chanel on YouTube that I am subscribed to, and I try to watch all his new videos as they come in. I hadn't seen that one yet though.
All his videos make me cry. I love his tenderness with the animals, and they respond almost immediately to his love.
