Bullshit Steve. All of it.


Which part do you want to bet on first that I can't prove in under
10 minutes? It will cost you at least $500 each.

C'mon kook, put up your dukes, you crazy bitch.

Get outta here with all that. I've done all the shopping for over

You have lead a v.e.r.y sheltered life is all I can say.

he's quite the little housewife.

Lucretia, she's putting down housewives.


Lucretia, have you eaten any beloved lobsters lately? Probably a
decent price where you live but way too overpriced here. Most
all the time, $14.99/lb here.


My younger daughter still lives out in Shad Bay and when we decide to
eat lobbies it's the best of both worlds, their friend and neighbour
is a lobster fisherman. So he comes to the party and the lobbies come
too, my SIL cooks them out on the deck on a gas burner. He generally
does a couple of cooks, my eldest SIL and I like ours cold from the
'fridge, some like them cooked and cooled and others like them hot
from the pot. He really likes my cheesecakes so regards it as a swap
If you're ever up this way, we'll do a lobby feast for you. I
know we're having one last weekend in May.


I saw an ad in the newspaper this morning for a restaurant Easter
Buffet. $44 for all you can eat lobsters, snow crab, and leg of
lamb. Oh and children under 10 can come for half price. $22. lol

For a buffet setting, that's pretty damn expensive, imo. Not only
that, but...SNOW crabs? For that price they should be offering
King Crab legs, even if from South America. Snow crabs are a big
letdown.

Here's an old joke I just remembered too....

Couple goes to an all-you-can-eat for $19.99 restaurant.
After the first plates were finished, they asked for more.
Waitress said, "ok but it will cost you double."
Couple asked why, "It says all you can eat for $19.99."
Waitress responded, "Yes, what you had is all you can eat for
that price."

heheh

Once or twice a month the Casino in the downtown offers seniors an all
you can eat lobster/prime rib for $9.99. I hear it is very good,
have never been but keep intending to with some friends lol

If I am going to eat crab, I like Dungeness crabs, plenty of meat in
them and particularly the claws, rather like lobbies.

I won't go to those places, ever!


I went through the casino in Niagara Falls. I am not a gambler and did
not stop at any of the tables or machines. I have never seen a more
depressed looking bunch of people. I know quite a few people who go. A
lot of them go with the idea that they are willing to blow a certain
amount of money and consider it a night of entertainment. They all tell
you how much they win, but they don't tell you about the losses.

I had a negative role model that reminds me why I should not gamble.
Crazy Joe was a gambler. He bet on the horses, on sporting events,
played poker etc. He considered himself to be a high roller. He used
to spend a lot of time in a bar where we used to hang out. One day he
came in to the bar with money in his pocket. He live in a hotel across
the street from the bar and he owed them rent that he had to pay that
day or he was going to be evicted. He had to pay $250 and he had the
money. One of his gambling buddies bought him a beer and bet him that
$250 that he would not pay his rent. Then he challenged him to a game of
shuffle board.

Joe kept losing. He tried all the gambling stunts, like double or
nothing, and just kept losing. He lost the $250. He go evicted. He owed
his buddy $250.
