If you've been reading this blog for awhile, you already know that I like to share information that's unusual, or makes me scratch my head in wonder. (lol)
It's not official yet, but if you live or plan to live in Rhode Island and love your porn, it may soon cost you. A bill has been introduced requiring all Internet providers to block sexual content, and anything considered offensive. The best and only way around it if this bill gets passed? Pay up $20 and you'll be magically unblocked. Those funds would then be used for funding the Council on Human Trafficking. The bill also proposes a penalty for those who refuse to block their content.

TOP CHEF SECRETS
Everyone knows that I've been watching Top Chef since 2006, and it's one of the only cooking shows I'll watch over and over and over again, which my son can never understand(lol) The show is so popular around the world now that you can watch Top Chef Canada, Top Chef Africa, Top Chef France, Top Chef Mexico, Top Chef Panama, Top Chef Italy, Top Chef Spain & Top Chef Thailand.
It's 2018, and Chef and Judge Tom Colicchio still feels that Season 9 winner, (Texas) Paul Qui has phenomenal food and is the best chef. He cooked his favorite dish of root vegetables and sunchoke dashi soup.
If you watch the show, it seems like they make their decisions of who will be kicked off very quickly with little discussion, but in reality, it can sometimes take as long as 6 hours or more to make a decision, and they can't leave until they all agree!
The next season will be held in various cities throughout Kentucky.
Just in case you didn't know, March 9 is National Meatball Day. So that means there should be balls made from pork, beef, veggies, chickpeas, chicken and turkey all over the place tomorrow. Rachel Ray even has a recipe that includes bacon! Make them yourself, or head out to a restaurant with a friend.
