Best if you have a family to share with. Otherwise you either need to cut it up and dry in the oven or it goes moldy very fast.

I have no idea what this means.
In my neck of the woods a "______   shoot" means a shooting match (usually clay birds) in which the prizes are the item listed at the blank.

I've never heard of a "steak shoot" per se but I have heard of "turkey shoots" and "basket shoots".

So this a shooting match where steaks are awarded as prizes.

I cut mine up and freeze it.  If you take a piece and put it in the fridge, it will thaw sufficiently overnight.  A few seconds in the microwave, and it's perfect.

This is Kappal Matha Church in Uvari, India.

I'm not going to be posting as much on OC.Net as before. I might stop in once in a while though. But I've come to realize that real life is more important.

You can grab the middle finger and prevent the whole banner from waving on wind or doing other unwanted moves. The other two are added so that it won't have phallic connotations - my guess.
