Top 10 Grilling Commandments

Its getting to be that time of year when winter loosens its frosty grip on us all and spring finally decides to get its act together. I know Im not alone in looking forward to the time when I dare suggest to my wife that we try eating outside. Soon, thousands of men who never normally venture into the kitchen will be dragging out their beloved barbecues and coolers full of ice-cold beer, and will start cooking up a storm. If you aren't an experienced grill-meister, however, the appeal of cooking and eating outdoors can be accompanied by the fear of setting your house on fire, hospitalizing half the family with a not-so-healthy dose of botulism or, even worse, looking incompetent in front of other men. It need not be such a minefield, though. If you follow the 10 commandments of the grill below, you are guaranteed to not only produce great food but also have the time to enjoy your beer, all while looking like a grilling god in front of your peers.

10 Things I Learned Eating On $1 A Day For A Month

sister challenged me to try and eat well for a month spending only $1 a day for food. It probably would have been wise if I had thought about how much I hate shopping and cooking before I took on the challenge, but once I committed, nothing could stop me (not even a trip to the emergency room two times in the first week) I began May 1 with absolutely no food and managed to stay under my $31 budget for the month (I bought $597.96 worth of food and other stuff for $27.08 during the month). Here are some of the things I learned.

The 10 Most Bizarre McFarlane Figures of All Time

Todd McFarlane is kind of weird. Here's a man who spent millions of dollars buying balls whose sole significance lies in the fact that they happened to have been struck by a piece of wood wielded by someone who had struck more balls with a piece of wood and sent them out of the field of play than anyone else (to that point). Does such a person, who takes the road more traveled, make a minor cameo as a bum in a movie based on his own creation (Spawn), make a figure of said bum for the movie's toy line, then make the figure bigger, clean it up and re-release it as "Todd the Artist"? I leave these questions for you to ponder.

10 Young Adult Books That Couldn't Cut It as Movies

We can't remember the precise moment it became cool for 30-year-olds to be seen reading young adult novels in public, but it might have been around the time "Harry Potter" movies were outgrossing "Star Wars" at the box office. Like the tweaking money fiend it is, Hollywood has been chasing that YA cash cow dragon for years now, occasionally hitting it big with the likes of "The Hunger Games" and "Twilight." Unfortunately, for every "Harry Potter" there's a "Golden Compass" hemorrhaging studio gold, and for every "Twilight" there's a "Beautiful Creatures" uglifying their bottom line. This week "The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones" is rolling the dice on Cassandra Clare's sexy supernatural saga to become a franchise, so we're recounting ten cautionary tales of perfectly viable YA series that could have spawned oodles of trilogies but had to settle for one lousy movie.
