The Diner Pantry / 🍝 Doomstead Diner Dinner Special: 4/26/2018
« Last post by RE on Today at 03:39:00 PM »
Since Pasta🍝 is such a staple of the Itie diet and Pasta🍝 comes in so many shapes and sizes and types that can be filled with...anything...you can never run out of Itie dishes to put on Special from this category.  :icon_sunny:  Today we are going with Stuffed Shells🍝, and since this is the first time we have stuffed shells🍝 on Special, it's the basic and very popular version of cheese stuffed shells🍝.

Stuffing shells🍝 is not a whole lot different than making Lasagna🍝.  You boil the pasta🍝 first to get it soft, then you arrange in the baking dish and fill with what you like, then coat the whole thing in some kind of sauce and cheese and bake.  30 minutes later, you have your delicious finished product.😋

Cosby Denies Being a Flight Risk After Guilty Verdict: ‘I Don’t Have a Private Plane, You Asshole!’

Bill Cosby had no reaction when the guilty verdict was announced Thursday during the 80-year-old’s felony sexual-assault trial outside of Philadelphia, but the comedian erupted during a subsequent discussion on whether he was a flight risk.

Initially, the prosecution team was concerned about Cosby having access to a private plane. Cosby denied having a private plane to the judge. Specifically, he said, “I don’t have a private plane, you asshole!”

A more jubilant reaction came earlier, when shortly after the verdict was read several women ran out of the main courtroom, crying and embracing each other in celebration.

Andrea Constand
"
The assault Constand described in her testimony on the second day of Cosby’s trial, is the stuff of nightmares. The two had met through Cosby’s alma mater, Temple University, where Constand was on the basketball staff. After a year and a half of cordial friendship, they met at Cosby’s home in suburban Philadelphia. According to Constand, the comedian gave her three blue pills to help with the stress she was feeling over an upcoming career shift. “These will help you relax,” he said, according to her testimony. “Put ’em down, they’re your friends. They’ll take the edge off.” When Constand asked if they were herbal supplements, she said, Cosby nodded and gave her a glass of water with which to swallow them. A few minutes later, “I began to slur my words, and I also told Mr. Cosby that I had trouble seeing him, that I could see two of him,” Constand testified, according to a report from Billy Penn. Cosby told her to relax and brought her to a couch. She lost consciousness.

When Constand was “jolted awake,” she said on the stand on Tuesday, Cosby was assaulting her. “I felt Mr. Cosby’s hand groping my breasts under my shirt. I also felt his hand inside my vagina moving in and out. And I felt him take my hand and place it on his penis and move it back and forth,” she said. “In my head, I was trying to get my hands to move or my legs to move, and I was frozen. I wasn’t able to fight … I wanted it to stop.” After it was over, and she could move her body again, she says she moved into Cosby’s kitchen, where he gave her a muffin and some tea, then exited his house without saying anything to him, because “I felt really humiliated, and I was really confused.”

Some time later, according to Constand, she returned to Cosby’s home to demand to know what was in the pills he gave her. “Mr. Cosby looked at me and said, ‘I thought you had an orgasm, didn’t you?’ ” Constand said. “And I said, ‘I did not. I just want to know what you gave me.’ ” After a while, she decided he wasn’t going to give her an answer and left.

In a 2005 deposition for the civil suit that led to Constand’s settlement, Cosby admitted to giving women alcohol and Quaaludes when he wanted to have sex with them. But he still insists that the drug-taking and sex acts Constand describes were consensual. Constand, who was 30 years old to Cosby’s 65 when the alleged assault took place, was dating a woman at the time and identifies as gay.
"


But:  Bill Cosby paid Andrea Constand $3.5M in 2006 to keep her mouth shut.  I think she should have to pay it back.  Every dime.  Then Cosby should get sentenced to the full ten years.  I'll even  go so far to say if she doesn't give it back she is guilty of fraud or something and should do some time herself.

All that glitters is not gold.  Cosby got pussy whupped, perhaps even set up.  Not that he does not deserve it.  She was certainly not worth gettin whupped up about.



As much of an asshole Cosby is if she doesn't pay the money back the Constand case is tainted and needs to  thrown out in appeal.

More money than most people earn in their entire life by quite a bit.

I expect the boat will be needing a bottom job and zincs. That'll be $2500 to $3500, but you could put it off, maybe. You don't need electronics just to sail the bay. I could install GPS. Most things can wait. He lived onboard previously. It might have some kind of AC. Probably an RV unit or even a window unit. If I go down, I'll find out a lot more and report back.

I am sure it will need a few $1000 to spruce up at the beginning.  We split that 50-50.  Do you know how many hours the kicker has on it?

Sailing electronics are mainly your responsibility, since I won't be doing the sailing.  LOL.  However, in the interest of having it ready for a full-on Bugout, I will chip in there.  As I mentioned previously, I already have portable GPS units and celestial navigation software.  I don't have electronic charts for that neighborhood. I have more than enough computational power for anything.  If you are going to sail it often and take my crippled ass with you, I would kick in for a radar unit.  Sonar also.  Definitely kick in for a HAM Radio setup and Marine VHF.

I think the parking for your car is free, but it'd be in the sun and salt. It's conceivable you might want a storage warehouse for the van if you stayed long term and didn't drive it much. Other than that, I can't think of anything. The Key Allegro marina has a bar, but I know they're more expensive (and they got blown away, not sure if they're 100% yet either).

There are a number of other marinas, but those county ones are the cheapest, and not much downside. There are working shrimp boats there, maybe some early am noise? Nothing too worriesome. I have overnighted at that marina in the dim past. That year it had been really wet weather and there was a gator in the marina. LOL.

Not a problem most of the time, though.

More important than the bar is Wi-Fi.  Need an internet connection beyond the phone 4G.

I would likely get a storage facility for SaVANnah & Trailer and buy a beater vehicle to keep at the Marina.

You can read their fee structure from that link . You'd want the 50A/220V service, which I figured in to the $450. I don't think it'd be much more, worst case. The boat is 49 ft on deck, which is how they measure. With the bowsprit it's a 55, but they don't nail you for that in the public marina.

50A/220 is PLENTY.

What other monthly costs do you project might come into play?

Live-aboard slip fee in that marina (the old Rockport Municipal Harbor, a decent location) would be around $450, I think. There are good heads and showers on shore that are government maintained. I doubt that boat has holding tanks, so getting to the toilet might be a deal breaker, just wanted to mention that one (I'll check). The marina is within easy scooter distance to the grocery store.

$450 is well within price range (less than my current rent).  Electric bill is a question mark.  Probably need to heat it electric in the winter besides cooling electric in summer.  Do cooking mostly electric also rather than using propane.  Shore power essential.

On board head with holding tank not that huge a problem, porta-potty can work there.  Dispose of the daily bodily waste once a day or so most depending how often I actually excrete solid waste, which is not often.  Piss just gets dumped over board out of the piss jug.  On shore shower good enough, most I shower is once a week.  No snow, so the electric scooters will always be fine, but need to be able to plug them in somewhere on shore.  Need Parking Spot for SaVANnah and a trailer.  Most supplies delivered by Amazon anyhow.
