    Speaking of weather: chili today, hot tamale.

    Well, I cook oatmeal in a small crockpot. Steel cut, about 1/3 cup with some salt and just over a cup of water. Put it on a timer and set it for about 2.5-3 hours and it will be ready for you in the morning.
    And, I am exceptionally proud of myself.

    I've woken up in the middle of the night to turn my (very old, very basic) crock-pot from high to low given what a recipe called for (and so the dish would be ready in the morning). It never occurred to me that there'd be crock-pots with timers (even though my 15-year old Mr. Coffee has a "brew" button which I can set to make the coffee for a time certain). Kids today and these new-fangled machines.

    30 years ago my parents had a little automatic timer that goes between the outlet and the lamp with a manual dial you could set to turn the light over your fish tank on and off.

    We always hanged the pot over the fire. We had an arm that swung out - really fancy...

    I have one of those on a lamp in my living room. I suppose I should switch lamps occasionally to keep people guessing. Bought several of them to use at church for the wreaths in the windows during Advent. Thought it looked nice for people driving by to see them on at night, even if the church was empty.

    Well, yes, it's an auxiliary timer. Took me years to figure out the dial type but now "they" have those fancy pants digital ones. Maybe there's even an app that you can stare at on your cellular type phones.
    I love careening off topic!

    Maybe you could go over to the Miami post game thread and careen them off the Joey Baker/Red Shirt discussion.

    Have NONE of you seen "This Is Us?"

    NEVER trust a Crockpot unattended! Particularly if it was a neighbor's that had been sitting in the basement for years.

    Not sure what's off-topic ... crock-pot timer discussions are literally about minutes ... move this to the main board.

    Had missed that cultural moment but this caught me up: https://www.newyorker.com/culture/an...mble-crock-pot

    Actually, NO!
    That cultural phenomena has passed me by. I am much more likely to be caught watching anything that is not "This is Us." I do enjoy asking my friends clueless questions that have no basis in the plot though. I do know that the sister's husband wears some odd looking hats.

    I asked about that. Crickets...
