A Civilization In Decline - Example 1

Why is it that when I want onion rings with real onion "rings" inside I have to buy gourmet-style? If you buy regular onion rings, they're ring-shaped breaded minced onion.

Chip in with your examples.

Actual onion rings are a dying breed, friend. There's a joint not far from where I live that still sells the best rings ever, though...Wonderfully crisp breading coating actual rings of sweet onion...If they ever go to the minced version, I shall officially declare this civilization declined.

Eh. How 'bout one of those big shiny deep-fried appetizer onion-flower things they sell at places Outback Steakhouse? I know, I know, they aren't RINGS. Hell, they probably aren't even actual onion. They're made out of simulated onion, uhh, a more economical substance found in the desert: yucca shards. Hence the upright posture or "bloom." But you dip the shards in enough of that horse-radishy sauce and I mean, who cares?

The inventor of those recently died in, like, the last two months.

Now, before you start saying "Good!" and other less-than-nice things about the recently departed, keep in mind this person was the father or grandfather (I've forgotten which) of one of my gf's friends (which is how I know about his passing).

Also remember: If you even *think* less-than-nice things about the recently departed...Karma Is A Bitch.

The inventor of onion rings? Or those bloomin' onion things?

Don't matter, I like deep fried onion. :D

That is a topic that I have a serious strong passion about. Theres no doubt that most people today ignore how important this topic is. I believe this can be a foundation upon which a number of other things are built and when we do this stage wrong, there are plenty of dire consequences in the long run. Consequently, we has to be careful and think about how exactly we want to technique this topic. I thank the author for giving a excellent first try at getting close to it.

samsung do DVR recorders that will do exactly what you want. they record to a hard disc and you then burn to dvd also can be networked. theyre really expensive. 400 +. go onto gardiners securities web site. Best option would be to call them and talk to a sales person and theyll recomend what to buy. Other than that contact a security installation company and get some body to come and give you a quote. what you asking seems like quite a big job to undertake with no experience. hope this helped
