What exactly is Wagyu Kobe STYLE beef? What's the fake out? 

"Unfortunately, while “Kobe” beef is trademarked in Japan, that trademark does not extend outside the country’s borders. Many shady restaurants, grocery stores, and wholesalers will attempt to sell non-authentic Wagyu beef and steaks as “Kobe,” “Kobe-Style,” or “Wagyu” in order to charge higher prices."

Thanks.  Absolutely an important thing to know.

You're welcome!

If you asked me, not that you would but I'll answer anyway, if you could travel overseas to get world-class beef on a regular basis my answer would be to go to Japan and Argentina.

I have a friend who went to Argentina for a week. She and her husband did nothing but grill various cuts of beef for their vacay.

We have close friends who are from Argentina - they moved here to the US in 2001.  Watching them barbecue meat is really a thing of beauty.  It's very simple - salt and pepper.  With chimichurri sauce (oil, vinegar, parsley and garlic) on the side, usually.  Of course, they complain that beef here is not as good, cuts of beef here are very different....fortunately for us, they have friends who own an Argentine grocery store, so they have a "source".

And, of course, it's nothing but meat at their barbecues.  No sides - LOL!  Maybe a salad?  Argentinians are very meat-centric.

I was interested in the DynaTrap TSV to repel mosquitoes from my outdoor dining table, but the 2/$39 price includes only a half dozen 6-hour scent pads. Using both "candles" for an afternoon-to-evening cookout, that's only three uses! Three uses for 40 bucks? No, thanks. For the TSV, they should have included several dozen refills.

I was interested in that too until I saw how many refills are in it. Sounds like I could spend a small fortune on those refills every summer. I passed.

So interesting listening to the background information from people here about the Waygu and Kobe beef.

Started me wondering about Kobe Bryant, the late great NBA player who was killed in a helicopter crash with many, including his daughter.

He was named Kobe after the famous beef of Japan. His parents saw it on a restaurant menu...hah! And now you know...the rest of the story. 😊

I must say Katia looks stunning this morning. She has her up & tussled looking and wearing one of Graver’s printed tops off the shoulder. Oh! To be young and thin. Really though she looks amazing. It’s funny how Graver’s clothes look like Dolce & Gabbana compared to the god awful and ugly LOVO stuff.

My God!  The rules on that "I Love QVC" Facebook group!

If you feel compelled to have to post rules saying you can't bash QVC - IN AN "I LOVE QVC" Facebook GROUP (imagine me yelling that part), you know you've got a problem! 

Here are a few of my favorite ones:

Be Kind - Negativity is not welcomed here

No Bashing QVC as a whole, not the hosts, guests or customer service. Keep opinions to yourself regarding hosts appearances, product pricing, where products are made or any general negativity.

No Pandemic Negativity

We are in a pandemic, the world is different. No posts regarding slow ship times, long customer service hold time, hosts not being able to eat the food or mentioning “social distance” or wearing masks

(my comment here:  Interesting that they continue to want to say all of their "problems" are due to it being a pandemic and that the "world is different".  The world hasn't been all that "different", with respect to delivery and order issues, at any other place I shop!)

No Venting Complaints or Order Issues to the Group

If you dislike the way QVC does something or have a problem with your orders please contact customer service and keep the negativity out of our group. Thank you!

I'd like to know if the rules were there from the beginning and people have been ignoring them or if they had to add them soon after they realized that the "I Love QVC" Facebook group was not turning into the bastion of sunshine, lollipops, and rainbows they envisioned and they set themselves up for the loveqvc hashtag to be an object of mockery.

Why didn't they call it "Lemmings Love QVC"?

I wouldn't be welcome on their forum. My latest problem with an order was it took 8 days of me going to "order status" and clicking the "cancel" button on that item for them to officially change it as CANCELED. 

Let me try... I LOVE my lock'n'locks I ordered, but it took 6 weeks to get them. Nope, I wouldn't be there long.

I don't have as much time to garden right now but I miss having flowers on my balcony. This year I'm trying something really different. I ordered artificial flowering boxwood plants (for outdoors) from Amazon. They aren't real, so what. I'm only trying to please myself.

“Something special” coming on Sunday. Generally means free shipping or EZ Pay. If it is free shipping again, hopefully the website can handle it this time. During the free shipping day last weekend, took me several tries throughout the day to place my order. Their website continues to be awful.

Whatever the "something special" is, given past history the odds are it's going to be as exciting as finding out you're getting a $1 refund on your income taxes.

QVC must be outsourcing website design and maintenance to the cheapest overseas company they could find... and then they get what they paid for.

Just had the thought that there could be a TSV Boredom Scale based upon household chores.  You know, the TSV is so boring I'm instead going to:

Do laundry

Dust

Deep-clean the bathrooms

Wash the windows

Pull weeds

Clean out the refrigerator

Polish the silverware

Polish the furniture

Clean out the closets

Clean out the attic/basement/garage

etc

The above is listed in no particular order.

I have trouble watching the presentation of the Kuhn Rikon shears.  I own them and they do cut as advertised.  I was using mine for cutting flowers while arranging altar flowers at church, and I managed to completely cut off my index finger pad.  Luckly, I did not cut the whole finger tip off, since these are sharp enough to cut through bone.  These really do cut!  My wound did heal, but my finger will never feel or look the same.  Please be careful if you have these.
