Shik Do Rak is my favorite.  It has my favorite brisket and sides of all the KBBQs.  That's pretty much what I load up on there.   

Roll rice paper, sliced raddish, brisket and dip it in the sesame oil.  Perfect.  I try to replicate it at home.  Pretty close, but still not quite the same.

They don't have the best bulgogi or anything.  For that or some other dishes, I'd recommend other places. 

The yogurt used to hit the spot, but they didn't have it the last few times I was there.

That's a bit of a logical fallacy leap there...  whatever.

We shouldn't be paying for their gender reassignment.  The costs associated aren't just money.  They also take time and resources away from our military.  The soldiers getting the reassignment wont 100% during their transition. 

I'm okay with trannys joining post-op as long as they can meet the expected standards without special accommodations.
I'm okay with tranny's ending their tour, getting the reassignment and then coming back.

If currently in the military, pre-Op tranny behavior should only occur off duty.  When people's lives are on the line, we shouldn't be distracted with  mickey mouse fantasy role playing.

A short term 2014-2015 study vs a long term study dating back to the 60's?  I'll take my Johns Hopkins doctors vs yours.

Well, the views by your John Hopkins are rejected by the general medical community such as the World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH). The RAND study was commissioned by the DoD and used to set guidelines for our service members.

I'll take a reputable source such as RAND over a discredited John Hopkins Dr. any day.

That's the funniest part...your RAND study is based on a study by....Johns Hopkins Doctors..Tah Dahhhh!

A new analysis led by the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health suggests that while most U.S. health insurance plans deny benefits to transgender men and women for medical care necessary to transition to the opposite sex, paying for sex reassignment surgery and hormones is actually cost-effective.

“Providing health care benefits to transgender people makes economic sense,” says study leader William V. Padula, PhD, MS, MSc, an assistant professor of health policy and management at the Bloomberg School.

I'm not discrediting the institution. It seems that when it comes to trans health, the particular Dr. you decided to cite is not well regarded.

I doubt it will go up by $100.  Significantly more housing units to spread the costs.  This side is really slow in implementing things.  Where are my guards and where is my OH School expansion K-8?  Give me my MR back.

K-8 would be a game changer, at least for us.  But I have no faith in TUSD doing anything in the near future.

Coconut Cold Brew Coffee Concentrate
July 07, 2017 in Category: What's New

When it comes to brewing, what’s the difference between hot and cold? Yes, temperature, of course, but also bite. Cold brewed coffee is never heated. As a result, the oils and acids that are released commonly with heat don’t pass through to the brew.

No longer masked by the compounds that give coffee its famous bitter bite, the nuanced lush, fruity flavors of the beans becomes strikingly more perceptible. With more than 50% less acid than a hot brewed cup, cold brew is truly smooth.

While we’re pro-DIY, the actual percolation and filtration required for a proper cold brew can take somewhere between 12-24 hours. Don’t know about you, but our cup of coffee can’t always wait, so we bottled it!

Working with craft coffee roasters in California, we start with the same medium roast, 100% Arabica bean base as our original Cold Brew Coffee Concentrate. The beans are ground coarsely and specially filtered, then something special happens—natural coconut flavors are added to create a bold, smooth tasting, tropically-inspired brew—namely, Trader Joe’s Coconut Cold Brew Coffee Concentrate.

Mix one part Coconut Cold Brew Concentrate with two parts water or milk, and pour over ice for a lush, tropical hot weather treat. If you want to keep the coffee as concentrated as possible, you can use it to make coconut coffee ice cubes for your iced coffee. And since it’s ideal for adding coffee flavor without the acid bitterness, it’s great for use in baking, marinating, making cocktails or served Affogato-style over ice cream.

We’re selling 16 fluid ounce bottles (enough for four-12 fluid ounce servings when reconstituted with water, milk, etc) of Trader Joe’s Coconut Cold Brew Coffee Concentrate for $4.99. You’ll find them near our other shelf stable coffee products, but only during the summer months.

Interesting. It sounds kind of good. But I'm guessing you have to use it up quickly. Once the container is open, it's probably going to get that sharp metallic taste like day-old coffee.
