Little House's square biscuits are soggy... Village Inn used to have a reasonable facsimile... Johnny B's and Rex's use unusual spices... The Egg & I's isn't bad.

Nobody matches the buttermilk biscuits at YVSO, they're 3" thick anyway. Plus a big greasy pile of hash browns -- a full inmate is a happy inmate. Things such as they are.

John -- I'm sure they'd want the plate back. I never saw a menu price. Is that an option? Do you have to drive up? I'll call and check. If you DO drive up -- don't go through that mesh gate on the left!! It might take a while to get back out. Based on experience.

Broncos are much better on TV at home. The cinder block at RCSO is so reverberant, you can hardly understand the announcers (or any audio) with the echo. The Dolphins could present a challenge -- how's our O'line looking? D remains great; O is the question mark. Yeah Go Broncos!!

If there is anything positive about this tragic situation -- it might be that they both went together, before the ills of old age set on -- painlessly, in their sleep (I could think of worse ways to go) and if one believes in any After Life -- if in fact there is one -- then Mark and Page got to enter it together, and how often does THAT happen?

Hey Bill -- Something must be working -- this time the fugitives outnumber the drunks 5:2!! Too bad they don't publish the perp's home of record as well, like they used to. Then we could tell if they were locals in non-compliance of something, or desperate criminals from out of town. The town has been unusually busy lately, for this time of year.

For whatever reason -- the Jail Reports have been unusually short lately -- with a corresponding underuse of that facility -- prompting me to suggest it as affordable housing. Get some money coming back in. Save RVP.

I can think of downsides. Once the folks discover the biscuits and gravy (Monday I believe) there might be crime sprees on Sunday night...

RVP. Iron Horse. It's not like the City isn't sitting on a pink elephant or two already.


rhys jones 4 days, 18 hours ago on Tight rental market, limited labor force are challenging employers in Steamboat Springs

Just thinking outside the box now... or rather, INSIDE the box.

Attribute it to our great Sheriff, or pot lowering the crime rate; whatever the reason -- last time I was there -- admittedly a couple of years -- our hoosegow at RCSO wasn't half full -- whole pods were empty -- housing for 24 at least, just one pod. Back in the glory days, folks were sleeping on floors, on the weekends. Eventually I was the PodFather, and I digress.

The inmates pay Cost of Support -- I did (and am) that place is a motel anyway -- why not rent out bunks, on a nightly basis? Routt County Bed & Breakfast. What day do they do biscuits and gravy now? Surprised me last time, after Saturday forever; I planned poorly, and missed them. Shoulda checked first. Best in town, but what you've got to do to get them...

The bus stops right outside. Float it by the Sheriff, I think the jailers miss me!!

Yeah hey, nobody likes tweakers except other tweakers -- but what're ya gonna do? Half of them are on Dr. Feelgood -- Prozac or similar -- and so La-De-Da Happy -- smug in their ultra-contentedness -- until they run out of meds... then watch out... difference is, they're playing the game, paying their AMA dues. Either one is offensive -- a sub-surface tension exudes, while an outer calm appears.

But maybe Dr. knows best.

Hey Jerry -- How 'bout them Nuggies?? Four out of their last five, Gallo's starting to shine again, Faried's making good use of extra minutes, and McGee -- Oh!! To make one gasp. Maybe I dissed Shaw a little early.


rhys jones 1 week ago on Steamboat Springs seeing lowest November gas prices since 2010

If you get 35 mpg, that would justify more of a drive to savings -- with my gas-hog it's much less -- so there comes a point where driving to save becomes counter-productive -- what point that is, subject to many variables. I wouldn't drive to Sam's Club to fill up from here, even to save 60 cents a gallon.

I've had enough variables for one day. It's PBR time!! Cheers!!
