Chik-Fil-A is fantastic fast food. 

Validated!

This, with a side of waffle fries. 

I retract my previous validation.

16 grams of sugar in a salad? That doesn't have any fruit? Just how sugary is that sweet and tangy maple vinaigrette?

Please do not construe this as a defense of PenFoe but Chuckiswrong

"Chopped Broccolini® and kale blend, tossed in a sweet and tangy maple vinaigrette dressing and topped with flavorful dried sour cherries. Served with our roasted nut blend."

Yah. Like craisins, dried sour cherries generally have added sugar (and oil). Because they're sour. I know that one has to pay a premium for unsweetened craisins; the local dried-cherry market is beyond my means.

Next time, I'll read. Next time.

This is what happens when we agree with Pen. Never agree with Pen.

For reasons that I will never understand, dried sour cherries are supposed to be good for persons  who have gout.  Don't laugh.  With any luck you too may get old. 
If I had known that I was going to live this long I would have taken better care of myself.   (Plagerized from numerous other folks)

Please do not construe this as a defense of PenFoe but Chuckiswrongat least here-- was a person nearly half your age.

I believe the person who suggested that to you-- at least here-- was nearly half your age.  He is little, though.
Just a sloppy, undisciplined team.  Garbage.

This would not have happened had the $36MM bond issue for new Maple School passed 40 years ago.

A) It was 43 years ago.
2) It did pass
iii) I was living in Skokie (D 68) at the time.

Holy shit. That's $173.24MM in today's dollars. You could buy eight years of Soriano for that! Or, I'm sure Charles Finley would have sold all the key players from the 1974 Athletics for that price, Catfish Hunter included.

I'll go ahead and note that the retail market in dried Turkish apricots appears to have returned to historical norms, down from nearly $10/pound last year to $5.75, and perhaps less, locally. And they're full of fiber and vitamin A.

You mean, like, around Istanbul?

Or, in your case, Byzantium?

Alright, youse wankers: I'm taking the Tonks to Canada for a few weeks in the summer.  We'll start in Toronto and head through Ottawa, Montreal, Québec and then out to the coast somewhere.

I am, in general terms, aware of poutine, and Timbits, and Tourtière and stuff, but if anybody has any specific recommendations about what we should be eating and/or whereaboots we should be eating it, I'm all ears, eh?

I just sent out a heads-up to hockey bloggers on Twitter. They all look pretty damn well fed.
