Tonight on the Tube: NCIS, The Unit, Dirty Jobs and a British Invasion on American Idol

Semi-Homemade Slow Cooker Recipes (Sandra Lee Semi-Homemade)My computer has gone kaput on me and I am having to create this post from a foreign machine. It seems my CPU has essentially processed it’s last unit. Hopefully, I can rectify the situation soon. The worst part of it is that I use my computer as my DVR. It is great having your computer play TiVo for you. Until your computer doesn’t want to play anymore. At least my TV still works, so I will be able to take in a few things and revert to the old school VCR for recording purposes. Technology is great until it turns into tech-NO-logy. At any rate, here are few picks for your viewing pleasure.
