    Texas Chili Contest

    For those of you who have lived in Texas, you
    know how true this is. They actually have a Chili Cook-off about the time Halloween comes around. It takes up a major portion of a parking lot at the San Antonio City Park.

    Judge #3 was an inexperienced Chili taster named Frank, who was visiting
    from Springfield, IL.

    Frank: "Recently, I was honored to be selected as a judge at a chili cook-off. The original person called in sick at the last moment and I happened to be standing there at the judge's table asking for directions to
    the Coors Light truck, when the call came in. I was assured by the other two judges (Native Texans) that the chili wouldn't be all that spicy and, besides, they told me I could have free beer during the tasting, so I accepted".

    Here are the scorecard notes from the event:

    • cheers? Ah ha, we know that code. haj

    • Sunny,

      I don't know about that. I see you joined Yahoo! in 1999, so you have felt some pain and probably read a lot of posts.

      Anyway, new buds are welcome, The General

    • Okay; may you continue to enjoy. I must be from a different demographic! Cheers.

    • sunny, it has everything to do with abt - this is a controll group testing the anti-psychotic drug in clinical trials. It ain't working. haj

    • I'll go along with that, Mr. Speculator. Ain't nuthin' like it, amigo.

    • With all due respect, what does any of this stuff have to do with Abbott? This board is certainly unusual.

      Go down the way D, and find a single-deck 21 deck, and play your lucky buck.

    • Persh - Try their Petite Sirah. The 2001 was great and the 2002 is even better. Wine Spectator lists it in their top 50 wines under $15 in the May 15, 2005 issue.

      Great color and a lot of body.

      I am glad I don�t live in TN. I can find it for $7.99 here in North ATL.

    • John,

      I don't know a lot about it, you are right carbs would be better. I was worried more about your persona/mindset if you did not eat meat; chicken and fish are fine.


      Brunnell not too good. I've seen him play a lot and if nothing else he is slow. Ramsey dosn't impress. Columbia Crest and St Michelle (UST, too) good, cheap. UST holding it own after Fonda got spit on. Salmon mostly farm raised and the "wild salmon" you like so much is farm raised too so said the WSJ or someone last week.

      I try to go to the Cracker Barrel every week or with a bud to enjoy "Uncle Hershel's Special Breafast" with sausage milk gravy on the biscuits.


    • Hajon:
      The meat (protein) takes longer to digest, therefore it will last longer. The body first uses the glucose in the blood, when it starts going down the liver will convert glycogen to glucose. If the glycogen is mostly used up then the body will begin gluconeogenesis and that is converting fats and proteins into glucose. Fats will not produce ketones. Proteins are broken down into the amino acids and then the liver will knock off the amine (NH2)of the amino acid by a process called deamination and amine is converted into uric acid and then urea and excreted by the kidneys. A ketone is an organic molecule in the second stage of oxidation and an aldehyde is also in the second stage. The remaining part of the amino acid is converted to glucose. Glucose is oxidized by glycolysis and the Kreb's cyle. When glucose is completely oxidized it forms water and carbon dioxide. Alcohols are organic molecules in the first stage of oxidation, ketones and aldehydes are in the second stage, and organic acids are in the third stage. When an organic molecule is completely oxidized it forms carbon dioxide and water and no more energy can be extracted. One moleuce of glucose will produce 3 ATP's during glycolysis and 32 during the Kreb's cycle, unless the oxidation is occuring in the liver, kidneys or heart where 38 ATP's are produced. The reason is that these organs have different enzymes. Now, if there is a mistake anywhere here Ponty will clue us in.
