Ok so I guess I will go a bit further into this music thing.

I didn’t get into music until after HS. Prior to moving to Madison, I only “listened” to rap. My Dad was a big “oldies” guy and we had a fantastic station in EGF for that. 100.3. S’good.

Went to college, got into a lot of different music. Madison seemed to be on the cutting edge of the music scene. Anyway, I veered towards classic rock for years until my oldest 2 kids got into music and I started having them listen to all decades of music that really started with Bad Wolves version of Zombie and I had them listen to the original. Then we did the Beatles and they couldn’t believe how many Beatles songs were in their everyday life. From there it ballooned to now that we watch videos from every decade together. YouTube is on almost all of the time when they are with me and we sing and talk about the meaning, etc. It’s really remarkable how it brought us together and now my 4.5 year old is really into all of it as well. Her favorite song is Old Man by Neil Young.

My favorite song is any song that was around before today’s pop stuff that my kids dig.
"Hard work will beat talent, if talent doesn't work hard"

This quote was written on the chalkboard in a lockeroom in the old Ralph Engelstad arena my Squirt team used the day after the Gophers used it and came into the game ranked #1 in the nation and lost 6-1 to a second rate Whioux team.

Also, we have watched James Corden’s Carpool Karaoke with Paul McCartney about 25 times.

I have too. The Beatles might be favorite artist from Rubber Soul through Let it Be even though I didn't name them for my favorite song. Although it would be a tossup really between them and a few others.

Love it!
When YE left for college he was a more into pop and some rap. I had to pick him up at school for a family wedding and on the way home he asked if he could plug in his phone, there was an album he wanted me to hear.

He turns on The Wall.

As he asking me what I think and the old "you must of have this one before" I give it about 4-5 tracks before I start singing along (to Mother, I believe) and he shoots me a look. Yes, son, but I have heard these before.... :lol:

It's really fun to watch your kids musical tastes evolve.

My favorite non-hits would include Hey Bulldog, Rain, Blue Jay Way, Love You To (not to be confused with the poppier "Love Me Do"), I Want You, Happiness Is A Warm Gun, Polythene Pam, Only A Norther Song, Long, Long, Long, Piggies, Savoy Truffle, A Day In The Life, Why Don't We Do It In The Road, I could go on... :)

Your favorite COMFORT food?

Mine is my Grandmothers cassoulet. It’s warm, rich, smells divine and takes over 2 days to make. She is long gone but I make it once a year and reminisce.

Comfort food is defined by pot roast, gravy, and mashed tatters.

Similar experience for my 30-year-old son. He was all over the rap and semi-rap garbage in high school. Now, he's locked into the 70s. Since he was getting into it, I sent him a link for Zeppelin's Bronya Stomp and Goin' to CA, and he was blown away.

Rain was a B-Side and not a very well known Beatles song to the general public is what I was more going with.

Both my kids have their own tastes in music but have become fans over the years of my catalog which runs the gamut.

Comfort food for me is Thanksgiving dinner. Bunch of turkey, mashed potatoes, and dressing (not stuffing) all covered in gravy with a roll on the side.

Burrito. This will be viewed by some as blasphemy, but I'd rather have a good burrito than a good pizza. It's really close, but in the end...burrito.

There is only 1 thing that I learned to make my first year out of HS because I couldn't be home for a holiday.

Wild rice hot dish. I can make it in my sleep, my kids love it,
But I only make it for holidays. I know there are a million recipes out there, but I remember calling my mom just before Thanksgiving 1997 for the recipe because I realized I wouldn’t be eating hers. I still have my notes from that call.

Boy, we may have to discuss the definition of comfort food. To me, it isn’t a food you go somewhere and get, it’s a food your Mom/G-ma made that gives you comfort. Maybe it’s just me though.

@Kelly Red you asked the other day about gifts. My daughter turned 10 today and her aunt asked some people if they’d be willing to send her a card since we had to cancel her party. She got 15 of them from friends and family as of today. She absolutely loved it and I’m sure she’ll talk about it for a long time

If you are not midwestern, you have no clue what this is.

And that is why this is a great post.
I know what it is, I just didn’t know what “TTHD” meant until I looked it up.

FYI, it is a great food group so I totally get it being a comfort food!
That is exactly the point of my post. :D
But I am more midwestern born and raised than Will Smith was West Philly.
The initials "TTHD" is innate. ;)
Acronyms are not innate.
Those of us who grew up with tater tot hot dish did not call it TTHD when we spoke to one another. :crazy:

Many of them yes. We actually didn’t give her any of them until today...a topic we’ve heard about multiple times for days

Comfort food for me is Thanksgiving dinner. Bunch of turkey, mashed potatoes, and dressing (not stuffing) all covered in gravy with a roll on the side.
Same. Except for me it’s stuffing. Homemade sausage, onion, and sage stuffing.

I'm not sure the concept of comfort food includes the most complicated meal of the year. As leftovers the next day? Sure. :)

Growing up my mom made lots of hotdishes. When my wife and I got married, she told me she had never had a hotdish. Her family was meat and potatoes period.
My mom died shortly after we were married and my wife got her recipe file. Now she makes all kinds of wonderful hotdishes.

The first thing that comes to mind when I think of comfort food is chicken wild rice soup. Mom always makes it basically completely from scratch. Cooks the chicken, shreds it, uses the broth, oh man it's good. That's one meal that will always remind me of home, or winter days at the cabin with that soup cooking all afternoon.

This is along the same lines as the wild rice hot dish for my family. We all love creamy chicken wild rice soup. Made from scratch is so good and so not good for you....comfort food by definition.

Your favorite COMFORT food?

Mine is my Grandmothers cassoulet. It’s warm, rich, smells divine and takes over 2 days to make. She is long gone but I make it once a year and reminisce.
There is only 1 thing that I learned to make my first year out of HS because I couldn't be home for a holiday.

Wild rice hot dish. I can make it in my sleep, my kids love it,
But I only make it for holidays. I know there are a million recipes out there, but I remember calling my mom just before Thanksgiving 1997 for the recipe because I realized I wouldn’t be eating hers. I still have my notes from that call.
Wild Rice Hotdish sounds awesome. Got the recipe to share?

2c Wild Rice

1 yellow onion

1c celery

1# each of hamburger/Italian sausage

1 can Cream of Chicken soup

1 can Cream of Mushroom soup

½ can mushrooms sliced

¼ stick of butter

Thoroughly rinse the wild rice until water runs clear. Bring water to

What’s the hardest question a kid has ever asked you! Ex: Is Santa real?

We had our 15 yr old nephew visiting us for a week at the cabin. We’re sitting around on the deck and out of the blue he asks “How old should you be before you have sex?” :shock: We were NOT Prepared for that! Remember this isn’t our kid! But my hubby stepped up to the plate and said, college. We briefly explained that HS was maybe too young, but that college was a good age. He just said “that sounds about right” and went back to looking at the lake.

So when @YoungEagle was a kid he never stopped asking questions. Never!
So once he could read I got him the Guinness Book Of World Records, the World Almanac for whatever year it was, and a book call The Top Ten of Everything and said look here before you ask me or your mom. Best thing I ever did though I did create a fact machine.... :)

That Guinness Book got so much money from kids that had to have it (maybe even multiple times). I think I remember one that was basically all shiny like chrome. Of course the kids will want that at the book fair.

Confirmed: 2000 (when I was in elementary and therefore had the book fair) was all silver. 2003 as well.

Boy, we may have to discuss the definition of comfort food. To me, it isn’t a food you go somewhere and get, it’s a food your Mom/G-ma made that gives you comfort. Maybe it’s just me though.
I disagree. I love chicken parm but I’ve never made it. Totally a comfort food.

That will also be when the traveling diminishes in direct proportion to said expenses.

It's a tossup...
Last summer, while she was climbing a slide, our then 3-year old granddaughter looked down at me and asked me "Grandpa, do you have hair?" (if you've seen pictures of me, you would understand).
Last fall, we were babysitting, so mom & dad could have a night out, and the same 3-year old granddaughter asked me "Grandpa, why is your hair grey?"

That has been the toughest question to date; that issue has since been resolved, but try explaining that to a 6 year old.

Explaining anything like that to kids who don’t understand is tough. We have a blended family. My 13 & 11 year old are from my first wife. My almost 5 year old and 6 week old is from my current wife. My older kids have pretty much only know things this way. My 5 year old still doesn’t totally understand why her big brother and sister have to go to another house each week.

“It’s just as tough on Dad as it is you sweetie“ is all I tell her.

This quote was written on the chalkboard in a lockeroom in the old Ralph Engelstad arena my Squirt team used the day after the Gophers used it and came into the game ranked #1 in the nation and lost 6-1 to a second rate Whioux team.

Overhead on SiouxSports.com - Why does every thread always turn into a "Gopher" thread? Is there a secret infatuation with them?

If you could be instantly fluent in any language what would it be?

My heart says Italian, I know a little but I’d love to be native fluent. BUT my brain says pick Spanish for the practical reasons.

No, Italian it is.

I think I would love to be fluent in my parents native language (Hindi). I know enough to get by, but not fluent and can't read/write.

Nah that was a joke answer. Tried to get a laugh.

If I’m being serious, I would say German. The language sounds so intimidating when you’re talking, let alone yelling.
