    Gotta disagree! Hunts is the only ketchup I eat, and only French’s yellow mustard will do!

    EPB fiber optics here in Chattanooga is the bomb... switched over from Comcast several years back and the difference in performance and customer service is light years. I guess we're lucky to have it here.

    It’ll be real refreshing to read the winter threads to cool off, while we suffer through about 10-15 days of 95 degrees and zero rain! After May, drought was the furthest thing from my mind, but looking likely with these upcoming conditions!

    Spanish news is fun to watch, especially the weather ladies... EF-5 could be heading my way and I wouldn’t care. Some hot ladies on that channel. Don’t know what they are saying but her body is telling me it’s hot!

    I have a hard time getting into soccer, but I will watch some of the World Cup for sure... it's such a defensive dominant game and I'm sure some of the subtleties are lost on me.

    Yup.

    Soccer is enjoyable the more you watch it, the more you learn about each player, their position, different formations teams have, the rules, substituting and how important it is (example: Bale coming off the bench and scoring in less than a minute in the Champions League Final against Liverpool here )

    My main argument for soccer is Goals are rare in general, so they’re that much more exciting/enjoyable when a player scores. Basketball, tons of baskets. Football, lots of touchdowns. Most soccer games end around 1-0, 2-1 etc. 3 goals a game...boring to some, but exciting to me. It takes a lot to set up a goal from a tactic standpoint in soccer than many other sports, outside of maybe red zone offense in football maybe? I’d say soccer tactics are more difficult.

    No soccer this weekend for me. Instead, golf all the way for me this weekend. It's US Open time babyyyy! Maybe I'll find time to eat though it would have to be in front of the TV.

    Y’all gardeners have heard of the Carolina Reaper, yes?? The worlds hottest pepper for about last 5 years and re-certified by Guinness again this year! It was developed by a guy in or near Rock Hill, SC! I found a chocolate Carolina Reaper pepper plant at a nursery today, gonna see how she grows! I think it’s close to 2000000 scoville heat units! Like 20 times hotter than a Ghost Chili pepper!

    I've heard of it, but I thought Pepper X was. However, it wasn't certified by the Guiness, so maybe not. Supposed to be grown by the same person who bred the Carolina reaper and also supposed to be 3 million scoville units.
