Does adding salt to boiling water shorten coming time?

+Leo Somera If I understand your question correctly: Adding salt to COLD water (e.g. for pasta) will retard the rate in which the water comes to a proper boil.

Lawn Care Questions  - 
 
After a Texas storm last night, these popped up in my lawn. They were not there twenty hours ago since I had just mowed. Only a few appeared and they were extremely easy to pluck out. Sticky heads. Anyone have any guesses to what it could be?

I've come to the conclusion that these are fungi. Time to spread some corn meal!

I spent a lot of minutes looking for McCow, MacCow, McCaw, McAw, McOw....until I figured out it was "Macau."  Could you spell out the ticker or company name in the video description?  Thanks!

I've been refurbishing an old Japanese dining table.  Stripping and sanding are done.  When the weather warms up, I'll start staining it.  My future coffee table :)

I use a Swiss backpack and travel up to four weeks a month by airline. I have only been asked to remove it once when I had forgot an ultra book in the bag with it. My surface and iPad never leave my carry on otherwise.

Great reminder that true change comes from within.

Mistakes by East German officials and rising opposition by large numbers of everyday citizens led to the opening.

I think the 0.7% who need gluten free food availability are very thankful of the fad.

One of my favorite stops between the Big Country and Dallas. Very good sushi with excellently done, unique offerings you can't find elsewhere like the Marlin Sashimi.

Sunday evening, most tables were available. The place was clean and the decor was nice. Service was very quick and the food was excellent. I had the Special Thali which was a combo platter of Lamb Curry, Shrimp Curry, Tandori Chicken, rice, nan, and a bunch of sides I can't pronounce. It was delicious.

We went there with a large family group including a toddler and baby. The tables set aside for our reservation were spacious, even for a group of 7 + 2 kids; this is uncommon as often we usually feel cramped when we go out to eat as a family. Our waiter, Steve, was very pleasant, informative/suggestive, and prompt. The food was very good. Appetizers of Calamari and Blue Crab dip were very yummy. The bread was okay, but the butter was whipped and spreadable. I had the Crab Soup, Salmon Sizzle, and Carrot Cake. All very good. The Salmon Sizzle with Mushroom Truffle Broth was served sizzling -- had to wait a bit for it to cool down (as expected) and very delicious! The Crab Soup was very good...not too salty which is a typical complaint from me. The Carrot Cake was very well done -- moist with creamy frosting.

very good food and friendly service. my friends from Japan really enjoyed it! seating is limited so don't expect to go and hang out... let others have a seat!

Always good prompt friendly service here. It's a full Starbucks and fully participates in the Starbucks rewards program. My only complaint is that the air flow seems to suck the cigarette smoke from the outside smoking area into the cafe -- always seems to smell like smoke (more so than coffee).

Very different from a typical cafe layout. There were no tables -- just stools at counters along the side of the wall. The counter where you place your order was large and raised, and walling the staff away from the customer. The initial impressions were off-putting, but once you get pass that the food was very good and inexpensive. I had the fish taco and a whippie pie. The fish taco was better than most I've had.
