Vegetable garden favorites

Green Peppers low to no heat Ghost peppers the hottest I grow.  Scotch bonnets are probably my favorites with Habanero next and love Thai peppers I buy at Jungle Jims locally. I use my smoker and smoke the peppers using apple wood or Pecan wood. They last for years.Love them in sauces crushed on spaghetti sauce. wife cannot stand the heat.Keep trying others but fall back to the favorites.  Scotch bonnets are my newest addition.   Great with tomatoes salads heat and sweet.See More

Fox News Nation

This is a group that believes in the alternative media and that Fox and others are fair and balanced.  We believe that the lamestream media is forever biased in favor of liberals.  This is where conservative opinion and news will be unfiltered but all will be free to view it and comment on it. See More

Snark

Posted by Marine24 on March 26, 2015 at 10:32pm 1 Comment

Do not fear, SNARKING is alive and well on NT.  

Idiots who think they know it all, love attacking others who give their opinions.  The Moderate group will not end this crap from continuing on NT.  You will never get rid of those who you know are the guilty party.

They will never change because they will always have to try and prove they are right and every one else is an idiot.

Good luck.

My Coldest Winter ... Ever!

Posted by Jerry Verlinger on March 1, 2015 at 9:00am 15 Comments

This is by far the coldest winter I have ever been through, and I’ve been through 75 of them. Although I can’t vouch for the first three or four because I don’t remember too much about them. Actually I've only been through 74 ½ of them. This one ain’t over yet, and the last 3-4 years have brought us some pretty nasty snow storms in March.

Now snow I can deal with, I live in the greater Lake George resort area about 100 miles below the Canadian border, and snow not only makes beautiful…

Austin City Limits Brown Out Brown Sabbath

Posted by badfish on February 28, 2015 at 2:30pm 4 Comments

   A few months ago i heard an interesting interview with the Prince of Darkness, Ozzy Osbourne.  He was ranting and raving about a Latin Psychedelic funk band that combines Latin, Jazz, Psychedelic Funk and heavy metal.  Brown Out put out an album last year "Brown Out Presents Brown Sabbath", fusing Black Sabbath classics with a Latin Twist.  After hearing the interview i searched them on youtube and became an instant fan.  Last night i took the wife and my two teens and one of their…

5 Strategies for Positively Dealing with Challenging Personalities

Posted by Robert in Ohio on February 26, 2015 at 6:30pm 0 Comments

I came across this article (excerpt below) on dealing with difficult employee personality types and it jumped out that it transcended the workplace was applicable even here on News Talkers.  I am sure we can see others in these categories, perhaps several categories ---- I am equally positive that others see me and others in the same categories in which we place them.

Enjoy
