      Abbreviated rules   07/28/2017

      Underdawg did an excellent job of explaining the rules.  Here's the simplified version: Don't insinuate Pedo.  Warning and or timeout for a first offense.  PermaFlick for any subsequent offenses Don't out members.  See above for penalties.  Caveat:  if you have ever used your own real name or personal information here on the forums since, like, ever - it doesn't count and you are fair game. If you see spam posts, report it to the mods.  We do not hang out in every thread 24/7 If you see any of the above, report it to the mods by hitting the Report button in the offending post.   We do not take action for foul language, off-subject content, or abusive behavior unless it escalates to persistent stalking.  There may be times that we might warn someone or flick someone for something particularly egregious.  There is no standard, we will know it when we see it.  If you continually report things that do not fall into rules #1 or 2 above, you may very well get a timeout yourself for annoying the Mods with repeated whining.  Use your best judgement. Warnings, timeouts, suspensions and flicks are arbitrary and capricious.  Deal with it.  Welcome to anarchy.   If you are a newbie, there are unwritten rules to adhere to.  They will be explained to you soon enough.

  1. Noaa satellite imagery of some of the areas effected by Irma. If you look at the north side of St John, near Francis bay, someone has "Send Tesla" spelled out on the grass . https://storms.ngs.noaa.gov/storms/irma/index.html
  2. Happy hunting.
  3. Disaster map of hurricane Irma. Click on the "layers", select Civil Air Patrol Imagery and then zoom in on Puerto Rico /St Thomas/St John USVI to see images of damaged areas. http://google.org/crisismap/2017-irma
  4. Carribean Buzz Helicopters Facebook page has several fly overs of St Thomas, Tortola, and St John. Bitter End is gone. Sad to see so much destruction.
  5. Kekoa is a class operation. Hopefully they can repair her. Boat already has a history of surviving a major storm when she was shipped from the states. http://onislandtimes.com/spotlight-on-kekoa-sailing-expeditions/
  6. BEYC was destroyed. 95% of boats in Hurricane Hole St John are gone.
  7. Someone said the BEYC is gone. Damages to USVI and BVI are extensive. Hope it bypasses Florida.
  8. I think I saw it on the front page.................
  9. I like spicy too, obviously, but my plan is to dehydrate these individually, then make a spice to add a little heat to whatever we want to. I tried a sliver of each and that was hot enough. A whole one would put me in the ER.
  10. BTW daughter fessed up that she picked up one of the bags that was labeled "chocolate" (Bhut Jolokai Chocolate) and sniffed it to see if it smelled like chocolate. That is why her nose was burning up. I told her they were hot when I was cutting them up and that she should not touch them. Teenagers don't seem to listen until they're in their late 20's.
  11. That's a good idea. Next time I will keep some IPA close by. Washed my hands 3 times with soap and water, still a little hot if I rubbed my eyes.
  12. Good point, I probably have cross pollinated them since they are close together. Maybe I can name my own hybrid? That would explain why some other peppers that were mild last year are very hot this year. Had them in a pot on the deck. The wife asked which ones were not hot, so I pointed to the peppers that were sweet the prior year. One bite and she spit it out, cusses me out, and went to the kitchen to get some sugar.
  13. Now I'm in trouble. Wife called and said my daughter is crying because she must have touched something in the kitchen where I was cutting the peppers up, and it is burning her eyes. Saline solution seems to be helping. I need to be more careful next time. I washed everything I used. Some of the oil must have gotten on the counter tops. I used a cutting board though.
  14. This year I bought the plants, so I am trying to save the seeds for next years crop.
  15. Growing some hot peppers this year that I have not grown before. I've done jalapenos, cayenne, thai, and habaneros before, but wanted to try something more exotic this time. Poblano - ok, so not so hot, but I like the flavor Bhut Jolokia Chocolate (Ghost pepper) - hotter than jalapenos and habaneros, interesting dark brown color. Trinidad Scorpions, Butch T, Yellow - Oh yeah these are hot. Hotter than the Bhut Jolokia's. Took a small bite of one of these and it has a very interesting initial flavor, hard to describe, almost sweet-ish. But then the heat kicks in. Wow. Where's the sugar! Carolina Reapers - Hotter than the scorpions. Have not tried this one yet. Waiting for it to ripen more. Cutting these up (the Bhut Jolokia and the Scorpions) to salvage the seeds for next season. There was a vapor or odor that was emitted that was almost hotter than eating them. Inhaled this by mistake and made me hack up a lung. Next time, I may need a filter mask or respirator. Anyone growing something interesting?
