    Westeros Dynasty 2016

    I am still here, but last year, my PC was hacked through my yahoo account. I have decided reluctantly not to use any of their websites this year so I have had to back off from Fantasy Football. Sorry I did nor check in sooner. My team can be given away if you would like. I'll miss playing with you guys. This was one of my favorite leagues.

    What's For Dinner, Take 7

    I have a busy day ahead of me today. It is prep day for tomorrows 4th of July BBQ. I will be making my multi olive based potato salad and Gorgonzola cole slaw. I will precook the bacon to add to the macaroni and cheese. I will be trimming and seasoning the 20 pound brisket and 6 racks of St Louis ribs. I will be brining the 6 chickens in habeneros, mango, oranges, salt and brown sugar. I will be making the patties for the 20 plus burgers by seasoning and stuffing them with blue cheese. I will be soaking the beans. This will all lead up to midnight when I start to smoke the meats. I am going to be exhausted by the time the fireworks start tomorrow.

    This was a fun year until I had the catastrophic loss in the quarter finals. I can't wait until next season.

    Man, Having starting QB's of Dak Prescott and Eli Manning with Dez Bryant as a WR1 killed me. If it would have been an average game, I would have been competitive, but as it stands, I was blown out of the playoffs. Great league... Thanks for having me as a part of it. The highlights is My Jay Ajai pick from last year paying off in doses this year. I had a feeling about him.

    What's For Dinner, Take 7

    Steak and Guinness pie tonight. I slow cooked the beef for 9 hours in beer, beef broth, and Worcestershire and added julienne chopped carrots, oyster mushrooms, red onions, garlic, and green peppercorn while thickening the concoction with flour all through the day. I did cheat and used a store bought puff pastry because I just don't think that the time I spend making my own is worth the effort in the slight taste difference. It was absolutely delicious.

    I do not have a roster shown this year. Am I starting over from scratch?

    Scott Lynch's THORN OF EMBERLAIN

    It could be publishing house maneuvers, but I haven't read a single thing about Scott Lynch announcing that he is finished with the book yet. I'm not getting my hopes up until I hear from him. I personally hope he takes as long as he feels he needs to. If that is a release in September, then that would be awesome, but if it doesn't come out for a while, that is OK with me as well. I couldn't have more patience or good will towards an author.

    Scott Lynch's THORN OF EMBERLAIN

    I had a trick that made the Theatre portion far more exiting. I skipped reading the play itself both time I read the book. An editor really should have cut that out of the book, It made the theatre section pass by with far greater urgency.

    Scott Lynch's THORN OF EMBERLAIN

    I will grant you that the politics story line was the weakest of the three major plot lines I described, but it was still highly entertaining because it was the tool used to show the machinations of the relationship between Locke and Sebetha. That was the major pay out to me. I can't recall a better example of any author addressing the concept of love vs objectification as well as Lynch did in that book. Scott know his unhealthy relationships and can describe them to a tee.

    Scott Lynch's THORN OF EMBERLAIN

    The third book in the series is my personal favorite. The subject matter and plot lines all tie into my personal life as someone who works at the theatre, is involved in politics, and has had relationships based of objectification. Having said that, I can clearly see how someone would hold the first book in the series as the best.

    [Spoilers] EP607

    I do not think that at all. If the Hound would have been restored by The Lord of Light, it would have to be a priest of R'hllor that raised him, not a monk of the Seven. He would also have not taken two days to get the point that the monk thought that he would actually live. Everyone else raised has jumped up and been mostly fine.

    [Spoilers] EP607

    note... Was this the least amount of swearing that Ian McShane has done in an episode of television broadcast on HBO? Someone failed big time by not having him utter the word cocksucker. I'm talking to you Mr. Cogman.

    [Spoilers] EP607

    I think that having this season's significance is enough to justify his time in this episode. I personally think that we are going to get a Hound/Mountain Champion fight, and being that this is inspired by ASoIF, I'd put money on the Mountain crushing our hopes yet again.
