Merry Wednesday, everybody!

Well, we’re just about to the season of crock pot recipes and sharing tips on getting our 3 year old kids down for naps. I’m sad to see football leave for the year, but I’m sure glad to be moving past the 2016 season. What a kick in the snake that was.

Around the DN since our last open thread:

Hey, how ‘bout a little Richard Cheese to kick our Wednesday off?

Again, we all know the rules, but in case someone is new:

-No discussion of politics or religion
-No feeding of the trolls
-This isn't a male version of The View, so leave the gender hatred at the door
-Keep the bad language to a minimum (using the spoiler tags, if you must
-Speaking of which, if discussing a newer show or movie, please use spoiler tags
-No pictures that could get someone fired or in serious trouble with their employer
-If you can't disagree in a civil manner, feel free to go away
-While navigating the open thread, just assume it's sarcasm

With that, the beer light is on and the bar is open. Belly up & tie one on. Don't forget to tip your waitress, & try the pickled pigs feet.
