Our DMV has come a loooooong way in the last 5 years.

It's actually not an unpleasant thought anymore.

Waiting times for vehicle inspection are posted live on-line.

Drive-thru for all other services.

I give ours an A+.

I put in 45 hrs in the office Monday through wedensday - ate one meal a day - dinner.

Last night was a 20 oz grass fed ribeye cooked over pecan - shrimp and a sweet patato with Kerrygold butter. 2 glasses of local red with it. Not normally a wine guy but it was gift. Very good

Damn it was good.

Re: Things I Love (2)


That my wife surprised me, cancelled her Mom's group to get me a smooth bottle of bourbon I've never had before and made my favorite for dinner (pork chops and saurkraut)... All because she knows I've been stressing about too much work and than I got into it with our kid's school because they were dicks to her about stupid ****...

She left a note on the table that said "Valentine's day isn't something we celebrate but thought I should let you know I appreciate all you do and that I'm happy I have a man of the house instead of what I hear about from my friends..."

This freaking woman is amazing. Exactly what I needed today... I'm going to be working Saturdays again soon now

But

I love the fact I have an awesome wife who is understanding and supportive. Best teammate ever.

Yep, that trim is prepaid though as far as I'm concerned when I got that tattoo on our anniversary

You met Rach though... She ain't doing pre 5am. Hell, who am I kidding? I don't wake up till 5:30 or 5:45...

I must be smooth talker though because she's outta my league for looks, she makes a decent living on her own, and she takes great care of the kids. Thank you to all the pussy ass men out there who made it possible for guys like me to marry so far up the chain

I prefer grass-fed at this point. True grass-fed, yellow fat. Not white. I'll eat whatever is Handy though. LOL

Yup. Anything we eat from here that never left here is completely grass fed. We don't have corn or wheat or any of the goodies to get them to fatten up. I don't like them. Almost no fat.

Now fair steers are great because they pack it on'em with corn and grain the last few weeks and they have beautiful marbling even if a little on the lighter side than you Midwestern boys are used to.

BS they don't have fat. Eating from the wrong place. I'll take a picture of my next one. Plenty of fat on a well-fed grass-fed steer, although not like a wagyu or general steak

Then again I really like venison and Elk. Not a lot of fat on those either compared to a general steak

My favorite cut is a good porterhouse or a tomahawk ribeye... The fat makes it for me. The best I've ever had was a completely grass fed Brahma but it has the large fat deposit anyhow.

All the grass fed Dogeys we eat are kinda meh when strictly grass fed. A little chewy for those cuts. My brother in law bought a dogey from the fair and I'll see, but the last one we got was delicious. Grass fed for about 8 months and the last month is exclusive on feed.

I like venison for the taste a lot, texture is okay but not like a great steak... I've only had elk once in Utah and not sure if it was fresh. Was okay, tasted like venison. Bison was very nothing special to me either.

Re: Things I Love (2)


When I'm doing a service call at home Depot and all of a sudden I hear this commotion where I am working. I'm there like I didn't do anything what is going on.

I turn around to find a group of employees looking at my packout gear when they see me and are like holy **** is everything you own Milwaukee?

Had to explain to them how much more money they could have made off me if they carried more Milwaukee and packout
