I have to design and do the cutting list for a huge wardrobe I have to make on Wednesday.  While the kids were here I had an excuse not to do it and now I just have to get my head down and work out all the math (which I hate doing in metric but timber merchants demand it now!).

That means I shouldn't be here posting this, however, I am allowing myself another tea-break as I'm the boss after all.

Yeah I wonder if they think we are aliens Stylus looks at my screens scans down looks at mouse and keyword then gives me that WTF look. Try this one out I put a picture of her on the screen I could see her trying to work out what the hell is going on. Eventually I think she realized she was looking at a picture of her self. I tell yah this cat has brought so much fun in to the house ;)

Funny you should say that Alien,i showed him a couple of pics of Socks.
   When he appeared on the screen,Chester looked at the screen intently and stood bolt upright,then tried to get closer to the screen.
   He knew it was another Cat,i don't know if he knew he was related.  :)

Sleepy Hollow was on regular cable over the weekend.  I imagine that's the one Skadi was watching.  On that note, is it just me but, I'll own a DVD of a certain movie for years and never have the desire to watch it, but when it comes on cable, I'll sit and watch it all day, even though I have a nice, unedited, uninterrupted copy on my shelf?  What's up with that?

^ I keep missing that show :(  I really want to watch it. The ads are unintentionally cool/funny to me for some reason... I think it's beause it's Morgan Freeman... and he promotes it so casually. Based on the ad..it could be a show on 'anything', and I'd want to watch it. Coincidenatally it's something interesting to me :P I need to write down what time it comes on.

I watch a web stream, don't think I can give out the URL ? It's far from funny its very informative. All cool Morgan has to do is read the script which he does so well. 10.10 to Morgan Freeman and his new show.......

Sitting down to a nice cuppa and movie.  I bought a new 1TB external HD today same one has the one I blew up. I got it down to a IC on the circuit board screwed to the HD chassis. SO I swaped them over and it worked, now I have all my data back yippee!!!!!
Impressed ? maybe not read on..

I repacked the new drive with fcuked circuit board and on Monday will take it back to the shop tell them it don?t work. Acting like I no nothing about computers  and stuff and get a refund..
Dishonest I know but I see it as WD will not sell me the dam circuit board so screw them ;)

Still impressed?

Interesting idea.  I usually just swap the platter/s over to some dummy drives I have and backup the data to a new drive.  Crude, but it usually works.

oh my gosh.. my dog was doing that too just a couple of nights ago :D And on the '4th', she chased down a smoke bomb, and leaped in the air and tried to grab a sparkler from my hand :o The day after the 4th I realized her whiskers were curly and short on one side because they must have singed from the heat of the smoke bomb >_<

Sometimes coming here is like warping into another dimension - actually it's more like 'all the time'.  Still, it's nice to get out and about eh.

Last night it was the calm before the storm when it gets hotter because the air is still, and no matter how hard you try to take a deep breath you can't get over the top of it.  It rained most of the night so it is cool and fresh today - a bit like me :)

And this morning Im doing the "I slept time 11:30 dance" feels like old times. Of course I was up till 3:00 catching up on all the media I had missed this week. But this is still my schedule of choice. Anna will be in college in 2 years and Im thinking I will resume my vamp like lifestyle.

All the contenders came over pretty well, except for Andy Burnham. I'm afraid if he won the Labour leadership then Cameron would make mincemeat out of him. The audience seemed to like Diane Abbott and Ed Balls the most. We'll find out in two weeks who the new Labour leader will be, probably a Miliband.

I didn't think you were watching it Red as you seemed to be busy here (who said men can't multitask).  I was going to say to you then that Andy Burnham is the only candidate and all the rest are pretenders.  Although, I would like him with a soupcon on Ed Miliband.

The Troop does an ornament exchange every year called "The All States Ornament Exchange" where you have to design an ornament to represent the state that you picked. We choose Colorado that year and I found this tidbit and thought CLASSIC!! Looked something like this. We made it sparkle too. One of the funniest things we've ever done.

Actually it's beginning to piss me off a bit truth be told.  If someone offered me a bottle of wine or a 4 pack of beer for helping them out, I would consider the work a pleasure as it would reflect the friendship involved and mutual respect.  Surely that is what it is all about?

I have just finished the laptop now and it has just turned midnight, and I really wanted to turn in early with a hot toddy to try and overcome this bug. Maybe I should sneeze on it for good measure?

They've been doing regular updates of the rescue efforts on a regular basis in the US. Then the rescue event was live. Although I only saw the second one come up also.. then I got too sleepy ::) I was never sure if we were getting all the political and worker's rights reporting.. we were mostly getting tech updates of the rescue prep itself.

It's been live from the beginning of the rescue and is still live now. They're saying there's bound to be a spate of movies about it, since some of the miners have interesting personal stories. I believe one of the miners had both his wife and his mistress turn up at the rescue, it'll be interesting to see which one he hugs first.

I did read something funny in the press this morning, someone suggested as a practical joke all the rescue team should wear Planet of the Apes masks as the men are brought up.

What I've heard in the news here is that the wife didn't know about the mistress and that he asked for both of them to be there but the wife said she won't go, that she has dignity but she's glad he's OK nonetheless. It could be a novel made up by the press though.

I hated having my in-laws for dinner.  Not hate my in-laws, they always tried to be nice and polite to me.  It was just that having them for dinner meant fish soup every.single.time.

I gathered they aren't Italian or they'd be affronted by eating pizza AND pasta in the same meal. I certainly wouldn't have a problem with that since I like both things so much better than fish soup.  ;D

No they're are English and Caribbean, however, it was more a 'buffet' so they helped themselves to what ever they fancied.  Unfortunately so did I, and am now fit to burst!

Post by: smokester on December 07, 2010, 07:35:37 AM
Homemade chips fell out of favour here as so many chip-pans caught fire and caused a lot of serious fires.  Deep fat fryers then became fashionable as they were deemed safe, but when people realised they were such a bugger to clean they too fell by the wayside.

The resulting thing was the 'oven chip'! Bleh..  Although Aunt Bessie's are rather splendid.

This is what I end up doing most of the time because you can forget the whole thing in the oven for a long time without further work or worries. But it's NOT the same thing as real french fries/chips.

Very good. I'm having a hard time wrapping them because they're soft and sticky. Next time I think I'll cook it a little longer so they won't be as soft. And I'll use a bigger pan to let them set so they won't be as thick.

Overall, I'm happy with my experience.

I've been think of that for sometime, considering I cook every night of the week.

Probably better to have a Food & Drink board where we could have a few threads like that.  Budget bartender would already be suited and maybe others?

I'll get it sorted out tomorrow.

Sometimes is due to the amount of moisture but another factor is the temperature at the moment of cutting. It's a similar thing with nougat. If it's too hot it's sticky. If it's too cold it gets brittle. It's been so long I don't make that I can't give you any actual advice.  :(

i purchased W 7 for my desktop off ebay.
didn't want a "corrupted" o/s for my main pc.

my lappy runs a cough cough W7 dark edition from Big D  ;).
runs great even updates with no problems (up to now) , but if i get any trouble i'll
just convert back to Ubuntu ( which i am debating dual booting as i miss it  :'( ) .
debating as to when to install W 7 on my wife's lappy (she has Vista) as it keeps coming up with
"no operating system found" on boot up  :-[
sorts itself out on reboot but i think the hdd is about to go bang.





ps i know your kidding  ;D ;D ;D ;D

I loved Ubuntu. I ran it as my primary OS on my Sony vaio Laptop for a couple of months when Windows started to piss me off. It's my favorite flavor of linux so far, and it's pretty friendly to linux noobs like myself. Their new netbook edition looks pretty awesome, now i want a netbook just to fiddle with the OS  ;D

Unlike Liverpool. I'm pissed off with the way we are playing this season. It's our lowest points tally at the new year since the fifties (the last time we were relegated). We've got United in the cup coming up, nothing like a good hiding from the old enemy to make our new owners get Mr Hodgson's P45 ready.

If I'm also tilting it at an angle, yes :D

It's made of some kind of metal and it never gets hot, it's amazing!  I think it may be hollow of have some other kind of material inside of it.  I'd really like to cut it open to see.  I have another metal mug, but the handle plastic is made of plastic.  It's a travel mug really. The metal gets hot on that one :-\

And I went to his school, all the teachers said it was fine it being after the fiesta and all that.  They also said it was gonna fade anyway.  So, I didn't get to be a madam.

Isn't it funny how we can't wait for the parts to arrive, and even sometimes pay more for swifter delivery.  And then wait for weeks before getting around to assembling the damn thing.

When I build a computer I have to wait until everything is just right - I can't push that feeling either, you just know when it is.

True. And I didn't mean she wouldn't grasp the idea. I meant it more like five year olds are more 'living in the moment'. I'm sure she'll be focused on her party that's up close and personal.

Party was fantastic and my girl nearly burst she was so happy.

My daughter actually thinks this forum is my job; she always says "daddy's working" when people ring for me.  However, she does refer to the members here as "Daddy's mates" so she will consider all your birthday wishes as that of all our friends, so thanks very much everybody and I'll be sure to pass them on.

Wonderful smokes!  Children's parties are just killer to prepare.  Like totally hate the work involved but love the excitement and joy it gives the little ones.  I'm glad my older boy is more practical though.  For his birthday last year, he chose a three year satellite TV contract over a birthday party.  This year, he just asked for a weekend away.  The U though...

Kids personalities are so different it's amazing how they can be related to each other.

Oh yeah.  Checking my mail for plane tickets.

all the welsh joined in and starting slating the English. I am proud of my nationality  :)
Me being me had to reply and therefore got banned.

Yes it can! I have a theory: the more central and upper the pain the more "dysfunctional" you get. You can have an acute pain lets say in your ankle and you deal with it but you have a slight toothache and you can't even stand people talking at you.  :-\

That's a very interesting idea, and works perfectly when I think it through. However, the lower the pain the more "depressed" I feel, while the higher the pain the more "angry" I seem to become.

I have so much to do and so little time. Even so, when I do get some time without interruption I end up drinking one cup of tea after another, eating an entire packet of chocolate digestives, and staring hard at the work I am supposed to be doing.

I do stare very hard though, which can be quite tiring.

We watched all of Teen Titans including the films, and that was a theme song the kids really loved. 

We watched the first episode of BF5 (fused) last night but with only 6 eps available, the kids will have to savour them slowly.

Yeah, there's an episode in the first season entitled "Mad Mod" I believe, and there's a funny scene where the titans are being chased with Japanese music playing in the background. Also, there's a movie where they go to Tokyo.

I hate the Unity Desktop.  You can change it back by selecting "Ubuntu Classic" at login.  It will remember the choice for subsequent logins.

i am getting use to it and the more i use it the more comfortable i feel with it.

plenty of help out there for advice and the grub install was fantastically easy .
more so than all of the other installs i have done.
all drivers picked up straight away. ;D

Out of curiosity but what made you switch to ubuntu, and also, what OS are you migrating from?

I ran Ubuntu on my Sony Vaio for about a month and a half, got used to it and then disliked it overnight. I came to the realization that Linux is just too complex to act as a regular desktop OS no matter how simplistic and pretty the GUI seems to be. It felt more like a constant task than a medium in which I could do other things from.

I apologize in advance, I'm not trying to be a buzkill and I highly value "to each his own", just giving some input and would love to hear your experience with it. :)

i had a laptop and decided to try something new. that's all  :D i would love to say i didn't agree with the world domination of Microsoft and how it oppressed the advancement of freeware / shareware  ,BUT i can't  :D :D


and also, what OS are you migrating from?
Well i dual boot with windows 7 ultimate on my laptop, but i only use Windows 7 on my desktop ,as its a family pc and too many things run that as yet i haven't investigated in the Linux world.

I agree Linux isn't easy , but all i did on a PC was cruise the internet , music , films , get bored and i felt my brain was wasting away ( it is from alcohol but  ;)) i needed something more.
Some of the new Distro's are pretty stable and very user friendly , all they need is a new learning curve and now i have ALMOST everything i need on my Linux operating system on my laptop (still cannot find a way to connect to my Belkin Net USB Hub  :'( :'( )

I apologize in advance, I'm not trying to be a buzkill and I highly value "to each his own", just giving some input and would love to hear your experience with it. :)
No  apologise required  ;D

Up to now i have had fantastic luck with Linux with no major issues that i didn't cause myself  :D :D.
i have tried a few Linux distro's and found some impossible to use
solaris / haiko  :o :o these are way beyond me.
Mint / Ubuntu / pclinuxos / xubuntu are great .
I use Ubuntu 11.04 natty narwhal and again i had to relearn where everything is but i love it

We were talking about the color pink and I said that I hated the color.  The CP dittoed and said that it was too girly and wondered why the King liked it.  I said I disliked it because it was too girly and I was a girl.  The CP's reply?  "Yeah, mommy.  You're kinda manly." ;D  My mom laughed and muttered something about "straight from the mouth of babes."

not that the desktop nor applications were hard / rubbish but
it was such a long time to boot up.
laptop on .
5 secs of bios
25 seconds of black screen ( and that was a short timing )
password login
30 seconds of Ubuntu wallpaper
15 seconds of awaiting desktop to start.

hooray were off at last.

it seemed like a eternity waiting.

so now i'm playing  with a little number called Zorin o/s based on Ubuntu
boots up in about 15 secs and runs everything out of the box  ;D

ARGH! Funny you should mention the new Unity UI, everybody in the linux community seems to HATE the new directions being taken with gnome, KDE, etc, and now with Ubuntu's drastic "dummed down" interface, everybody seems ready to switch over to Mac OS X! What gives? In all honesty, I'd rather have Unity over Windows 8's new look any day, at least with Unity, the "dummed down" aspect of it isn't so in your face as with Windows 8's new tablet orientated direction.

Personally, I'm anxious to fiddle around with Unity as it does look like things are shifting drastically and Linux is finally trying to appeal to users who haven't been coding straight out of the crib with 4 or C++ and Python books under their belt. And anyway, it's not that different from what Ubuntu was before, things have just been simplified or moved around for "better productivity purposes" which although subjective, I tend to agree with. I thing change is good, plus Ubuntu looks so purty now. :P

As soon as I get a decent build up and running I'm going to give Ubuntu another shot and fiddle around with it once again.

@Goldshirt, were you running it on a laptop? What were your specs? Unity is more demanding than the now dubbed "classic theme", which coincidentally, is why they decided to leave that classic boot as an option until 11.10 is officially out and about.

had no problem running it , just slow to start up. :-\
i liked Unity a lot. set up , everything worked.

I cannot run on my desktop as i have a nvidea graphic card and linux and graphic cards don't always mix.  :o

Yeah, that's a little strange. Ubuntu has always been pretty flexible for me over other distros that I've tried in the past, with everything working straight from the start-up. Unity is supposedly a work in progress, not to mention the pre-configuration that might be going on in the background initial to start-up allowing you to choose the classic boot over Unity. Supposedly that option is going to be shed with 11.10 so I'm hoping Unity will be more streamlined by then.

Pretty true in regards to graphic card compatibility with Linux although Ubuntu is adopting very strongly as of late and if you visit system76 or ZaeReason you'll notice that the latest NVIDIA cards(as of late last year up to this year) are supported and can be integrated into a build of your choice. I really have to applaud that, and with all of the changes in interface and usability , Linux is really starting to look prettier and prettier as a Desktop OS for everyday use.

my desktop has a old graphic card so i kinda knew i'd hit problems  :-[ (NVIDIA GeForce 7800 GT )
and this was the problem http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=10069997&postcount=1  (http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=10069997&postcount=1)
i pretty much leave it W 7  to be truthful as my wife would pull her hair out login into linux   ???
plus the family use tversity around the home from the desktop through ps3's.

nice lappys link , expensive though then again i suppose not ,look quality built :D
i did look at a laptop running http://www.ebuyer.com/product/265844 (http://www.ebuyer.com/product/265844) this but with a intel i5 and 8gb ram
for £366.00 ($550 ish ) but  have ran out though.

i have the same laptop with the above mentioned spec in previous post and it runs great.

zorin is very good.( built on 10.0 ubuntu) but not unity desktop.
only thing i couldn't get to work was the internal mic and now that's ok. ;D
does come pre installed with most things configured ( play on linux , wine , compiz ).
it will do for me until unity improves

Oh good, that looks pretty tedious if you ask me, it's cool that you found the fix though, I know I would have been going crazy trying to figure out why it was booting so slow on me. Right now I'm trying to figure out why firefox has been acting stupid on me a couple of months after I upgraded to Firefox 4.0 , and now I'm starting to convince myself that it has to do with my setup.

I cannot run on my desktop as i have a nvidea graphic card and linux and graphic cards don't always mix.  :o

Basically, it's a project one of the other supervisors want me to work on so that if the post I want opens up, I can rightfully claim to be full of initiative, have had the proper exposure, and can honestly say that I am an effective mentor.  However, since she's not my supervisor, I have to write a proposal to send to my supervisor who will rubber stamp whatever it is I put in there.

Remembering that in another life (it's been so long ago that it feels that way) I used to do show jumping. For a short while when I was about 15-16 yrs old and only because my family kept insisting (my grandad, mum and sister did it).
I hated it with a veangence. Hated everything about it specially the people that practiced the sport. And I don't particularly like horses either. Why is it most people are crazy for horses?  :-\

My missus has a real affinity to horses and in turn, so does my daughter.  I love all animals so don't mind their affection for all things equestrian, but if I get asked one more time by my little girl exactly when am I going to be able to afford one, I swear I'm going to ban them from all conversation.

Good news is I came home £45 in profit.

Oh dear XT, I do hope your injury doesn't last too long. Unfortunately, in my experience, ankle sprains and the like tend to have their own agenda.

Thank you smokester! If I don't walk and put ice on it I'm OK but when I walk it starts to swell and hurt. It's probably nothing important. At least I hope so.  ;D  I'm trying to avoid doctors as usual.

Shaking like a leaf.

I was up late trying to work through a few issues we're having on our IM server at work but decided to call it a night and go to bed.  I go outside for one last cigarette (I never smoke inside).  I usually listen to a Bob and Tom podcast on my headphones (morning radio show) and play Angry Birds or something while I have the smoke.  I also don't turn on the porch light because it attracts moths.  As I was finishing it up, some movement caught my eye.  We have a lot of stray and abandon hats around our place so I figured it was one of them.  I looked over and quickly noticed that this particular cat, roughly 5 feet from me, has a white stripe down it's back.  As I turn my ipad toward it to use it's light to get a better look at it, I notice that quickly looks up at me.  It evidently had no clue I was there.  I try to slowly open the screen door and make my way inside, thinking that now that it knows I'm there, it's gonna scurry away as I'm not threatening it or anything.  Instead, it starts quickly coming at me.  I've never moved so fast in my life but I made it inside.  As I turn on the light and look out the window for it, I don't see it anywhere but I do start to notice a subtle smell of skunk spray.  Evidently I made it in just in time.

Needless to say, my heart is racing and I don't think I'm gonna be able fall asleep anytime soon.

Phew.

Will there be beer?

I've been to a place like that last night. One of my nephew's 3 years old birthday party. There was a lot of beer and food. So I put up with it.  ;D

As for D3, it seems to easy right now.  Hopefully that'll change/be fixed as the beta progresses.

They had to cancel 4 games in Italy this week because of the weather - probably should have cancelled more.  My Italian pal goes to his mother-in-law's in Poland next Friday, and Mielec where he is going is a rather comfortable -16o as I write, which is a great improvement on the -26o that it was this morning. 

Looking forward to your trip Anton?

He lived there for about a year after it didn't work out in Italy (he and his wife left England when their daughter was born).  He tells me now that although he of course loves his extended family, Polish mothers pride themselves for never being 'wrong' which was unbearable. 

Personally I thought that all women are never wrong?

Poveretto!

True but he only has to manage 5 days and then he has 4 days at home without the missus and offspring.  Just enough time to get wasted and recover.

Last night the snow was gorgeous and with a temperature of 3o, it actually was pretty perfect for kids and adults alike to play in.  The problem is that during the night some very fine stuff fell on it that was a bit like fine rain, and that has made it slushy and hollow.  That's my excuse to the kids against their incessant nagging to go out, and I fear that soon I'm going to lose the argument.

I tend to pause it on my Sky box, make a cuppa and whatever and then go back after about 15 minutes.  That way I can forward past all the breaks and studio chat and see a quarter in the time it should take.  I have to repeat the process each quarter which is a drag, but it does help the continuity of the game for me.

Did I play any tonight?  No, tonight I've been continuing the migration of virtual machines from our old SAN to the one that's replacing it.  Since Saturday, I've migrated 21 virtual machines.  1 left and the application admin wants to wait until next Friday in case anything goes "wrong",  I'm going to try and convince him tomorrow that nothing will.  Keep your fingers crossed.

I am now preparing one of the comps from my attic (a little 2.7ghz Dell Optiplex) for my daughter' s ballet teacher that unfortunately isn't very well with the dreaded BC.  Hopefully a computer will help her out to some degree.

...you have no idea how hard it is to hang a door that has already been hung somewhere else.

I do!! You're entitled to insult all you want while hanging said door.

Right now I'm taking a pain killer for my neck.  :(

Nothing in its new space lined up with the ironmongery of the old door.  Not the hinges, the mortice lock, the yale lock, the chain, the door bolts - nada.  Not only that, but after reducing the door width to fit the new doorway, all the locks had to be housed in another 1/2" deeper which left visible holes on the front which had to be filled. 

Ache even more today.

That's what I do and why people ask.

Would have been easier to just get a new door.  That sounds like it was a true PitA.

I think my father in-law saw the door the neighbour had changed and thought he could make good use of it considering a new one in that material would cost about £90.  I think by the end though even he wished he hadn't asked as (as XT said) everything that could have been a problem, was a problem. 

It looked sweet once finished though which is the important thing.

It depends on the door.

Had a new door been solid oak for instance, it would have been no fun at all.

She doesn't cough that much during the day when she has a cough, it's when she gets horizontal that it really kicks off. 

She was coughing until about 2am last night right next to me so I didn't get that much sleep. That said, it was at a much reduced rate than it was when she was upstairs in her own bed.

Hopefully I'll have a better night.

They are made to measure and it's a chance in a million that they'd fit somewhere else.  I once threw away 3 sets, however, in that case it was the joiner who'd sent them wrong and he had to stump up for the new sets.

The company I use is sending me down some new ones at cost so once the job is all finished, I should still earn about £100.  Better than losing £500 but worse than earning £400.

trying to get see if my 5 month old laptop is repairable  ???
for some reason it restarted in its protected neoprene sleeve whilst in its bag.
I heard a clicking noise after about 2.5 hours and found it  on .
BOY was it hot. :o
turned off and cooled it down in the open air.
Now nothing  :'( :'(
placed a new hdd in , removed the ram and refitted it.
took out the battery and tried to turn on ac power only.
nothing what so ever  happens.
The small AC mains light that appears when plugged in doesn't even light.
Can only guess the processor has burnt out ??
Well issed off i can tell you.
Have just bought a new hybrid hdd and more ram to fit ( luck would have it, not fitted as yet )
Hope i can bluff Ebuyer into a new laptop .
Still under guarantee and no idea if they can find out how it burnt out.
Well it didn't shut down as it should have , so a fault maybe with the laptop anyway.

And to top it all my desktop froze on a update and i had to reboot it  :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'(
F*c* it wont boot freezes at boot up showing bios, well most of the bios as my spare  hdd / dvd drive is missing.

I'm off to bed , have had enough of anything electronic  :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'( :'(

You could be right but if there was anything left in the battery he'd be able to boot from that.

If it really got that hot it probably fried (deballed) the mobo.

well as you can see I'm just back on line .
Desktop
It was a update in Windows 7 to do with Office ( I think).
it just froze on me and after a reboot it did the weirdest of things  :o
At the Bios boot screen the system kept stalling at finding secondary hdd on boot up ,I disconnected what i thought was the hdd only to realize it was the dvd drive I removed by error.
It worked though and the system rebooted to my desktop (No idea why this worked, can only assume the system lost the plot on what drive did what ?)
ran the update again (a few times ) and all seems well.I use Auslogics http://www.auslogics.com/en/ (http://www.auslogics.com/en/) which I ran a few times to tidy the errors up and all is great .TOUCH WOOD  ;D ;D

laptop
Not as bad as i thought.
After leaving overnight ( I couldn't be bothered to look at the time of incident)
I thought I'd take out the battery and run with only the psu plugged in, what i thought was the laptop psu lead turned out to be the wife's HTC phone  charger. DERRR ME  ;D ;D ;D ;D
(I hate the amount of different chargers we have). After i realized this i plugged in the laptop charger and removed my battery and it started.
Battery must have got so hot it just used all the power up
I have charged the battery since and all is OK. Lucky Me  :) :) up to now !!
The only good thing to come out of all of this is, when i stripped my laptop i found I had 1 x 4gb ram not 2 x 2 gb as I thought.
So i ordered another stick of 4gb to max it out

It's the basic recipe so it should work very well.  It's just cream, mangoes, condensed milk and graham crackers/crumbs.  Just press the graham cracker into a crust, mix the cream and milk and layer them.  Use the sweetest mangoes you can find.

I have to confess that I didn't quite go for the 'cue ball' appearance, I actually gave myself (with help) a grade 1 as I wanted to appease my mother at the same time.  As I lose more hair though I'll probably end up going the whole way.

You know, when I was a kid there were only 3 bald people in the world: Yul Brynner, Duncan Goodhew and that little bloke from The Benny Hill Show - and I'm not completely convinced about the latter.

I knew West Ham would only be away from the Prem for one season. I'm glad you're back up, Liverpool have sorely missed those six points.  :P

Liverpool are treating managers like a bag of Revels. Go through as many as possible and sooner or later we'll come across the best one (the coffee).  :)

Rumour has it Andre Villas-Boas will be offered the job within a couple of days. Rumour usually gets it wrong though and I'm worried we'll be lumbered with Roberto Martinez.

Would you have confidence in Frank Rijkaard if he were up for job and of course, was offered it?  He also probably has first hand experience of good quality coffee.

If I were involved in recruiting the new manager my shortlist would consist of Pep Guardiola, Guus Hiddink, Jose Mourinho, Jurgen Klopp & Rafa Benitez. Possibly also Andre Villas-Boas & Didier Deschamps. Whoever takes charge I'd install Jamie Carragher as a player/coach and future manager.  :)

Had a power cut last night from 12am till 2am. Now I'm getting a WiFi connection from the modem but bugger all via the hardwire?

3 out of 4 of the comps in this house are hardwired.

Probably stupid to ask but, have you rebooted the computers having issues?  Actually disabling and re-enabling the network connection should suffice, but more often then not, a reboot is simpler to explain to people.  Do the wired computers get IP addresses via DHCP or have you statically assigned them an IP address?

It was something to do with the Network mapping of the Win 7 machines (XP comps had no interruptions).  I deleted the internet network and then installed it again and all was back to normal.  Not entirely sure why that happened that way, but trying to refresh/reset services didn't resolve the connection?

Good new is it's been whittled down to between 12pm and 3pm.

Today I was going on my way to rent a costume for my daughter's school play and since it was nearly closing time I had to run. Yeah, actually run. I tripped and ended up sprawled in the sidewalk. I only scratched my palms but it was quite embarrassing.
Later tonight while we were getting home my husband let the costume drop in the curb. I'll just say it's been raining today and the plastic cover didn't cover the entire costume. So right now I'm washing and drying said costume.

I am stick scratching my behind, waking up.  Waiting to read a post from batz : )

The "version" I have has the nudity mod and the "better sex scenes" too (it came with those installed - would I lie?), so romantic interludes are a tad more interesting.  The first and second time you see them at least.

Right now I am on a chocolate digestive binge.  Somebody stop me!

one way, i've been eating strawberry white chocolate yogurt.  sounds gross, and probably is if you don't get this crappy light kind from yoplait.
I just got done walking, that was nice.  I didn't run, therefore my feet, shins, and behind don't hurt.

Analytically pulling this one apart.

Litany

You are the bread and the knife,
The crystal goblet and the wine...
-Jacques Crickillon

You are the bread and the knife,
the crystal goblet and the wine.
You are the dew on the morning grass
and the burning wheel of the sun.
You are the white apron of the baker,
and the marsh birds suddenly in flight.

However, you are not the wind in the orchard,
the plums on the counter,
or the house of cards.
And you are certainly not the pine-scented air.
There is just no way that you are the pine-scented air.

It is possible that you are the fish under the bridge,
maybe even the pigeon on the general's head,
but you are not even close
to being the field of cornflowers at dusk.

And a quick look in the mirror will show
that you are neither the boots in the corner
nor the boat asleep in its boathouse.

It might interest you to know,
speaking of the plentiful imagery of the world,
that I am the sound of rain on the roof.

I also happen to be the shooting star,
the evening paper blowing down an alley
and the basket of chestnuts on the kitchen table.

I am also the moon in the trees
and the blind woman's tea cup.
But don't worry, I'm not the bread and the knife.
You are still the bread and the knife.
You will always be the bread and the knife,
not to mention the crystal goblet and--somehow--the wine.
Billy Collins

In Westminster for instance, not a single secondary-comprehensive type school remains.  I can't stand the fact that the individuals that run a school, can set their own value system without consideration for things like socioeconomics and culture.  I'm sure that everyone involved has the right intention and aim to do some good for the society, but I'd feel far more at ease if central government dictated a set of standards that had to be adopted by all schools, and then the bits and bobs could be left to the school administration's discretion (things like school uniform and school meals etc).

A bit like exactly how it was before academies.

Of course you are.  :)  But probably he isn't so everything is going to be OK.

When I went to take him at 10.45 to get there at 11.15 (cut off is 11.30), my bike decided not to start and then the battery died.  My neighbour happened to come out of her house while we were trying to bump start it which wasn't going to happen, and said she'd take him in her car.  It was a long shot as in a car the journey could take an hour but we had to try.  Traffic was not bad which is unusual and we were all happy thinking we were going to make it, when we hit a wall of traffic about a mile and a half away.  After 5 yards in 5 minutes the boy and I decided the run there instead. 

We got there at around 11.29.

Now I cannot find my battery charger for love nor money and will have to go and get him on the train. Before that though I have to try and get my sister-in-law to pick my daughter up.

Stoopid bad luck day.

Trying to recoup from a very crappy day.  Had insomnia and didn't get to sleep until around 3:45am-4am.  Had to get up by no later than 7:30am because I had a Dell TS guy coming to replace a mobo in a new, yet problematic server.  Starbucks was busy so I got to work a little late and he was waiting for me so I put my coffee and breakfast sammich in my cube and took him to the testbed area to work on the server.  The location of the testbed area requires all visitors  to be accompanied by someone.  After about 3.5 hours, we discover that the replacement mobo is defective as well (bent pins on one of the cpu sockets).  Well, there is no more replacement mobo in the region so they had to have it driven in from West VA.  The tech comes back when the new mobo arrives around 2:40pm.  We start swapping it out and mutha *expletive deleted* if this mobo doesn't have bent pins on BOTH cpu sockets.  Also, discovered that someone bunged up one of the cpu heatsinks pretty good.

Anyway, this server was 1 of 2 that is supposed to be set up in a satellite office about 5 hours away.  The other server was perfectly fine and was taken to the office last weekend.  I've been fighting with this one for a 10 days and it's worse off now then when it started.  Fourth replacement mobo is scheduled to get here on Monday.

Damn I'm glad it's the weekend.

I always get a Vente Caramel Mocha and usually get a plain bagel, toasted with cream cheese but they were out of them (Out of plain bagels at 7:50am?!?!?!) so I went with a Ham & Cheddar Artisan Sammich (http://www.starbucks.com/menu/food/hot-breakfast/ham-and-cheddar-artisan-breakfast-sandwich) which, after reading the nutritional info, I'll never get again.  After 3 hours, neither was particularly tasty.

I never used to drink coffee but when I was in college it was the "fashionable" thing to do so I'd get a Raspberry Caramel Mocah with a double shot of espresso.  Barely tasted like coffee but, since I have slight ADD tendencies...SQUIRREL!!!!...I'd get about 1/3rd of the way through it and was ready for a nap.

As for Starbucks, I give them a wide berth.  I actually like the taste of good coffee.  Starbucks likes to sell coffee to people who will do anything to avoid tasting it.  My brother dislikes coffee but he loves Starbucks sweetened coffee drinks.  Why?  Because they taste like anything but coffee.

yet many think its beautiful.

Mate was a pain in Ubuntu 12.04., tinternet wouldn't connect, various errors on opening files.
Where as Cinnamon went in a treat, simple desktop almost reminiscent of older ubuntu issues.Very editable indeed.
Still like Unity and gnome but find this rather easier on the eye.
The way Ubuntu is going I doubt I will be using it much longer. :-\

Being not so happy.  Got a bit of a nasal thing going on.  Previous "tickles" like this have always lead to sinus infections (gawd help me).  Also, woke up to find out that, even though it's a staff holiday (class is still in session so business still goes on), no one seemed to tell my e-mail.  At least I can do all the work from home without having to actually go into the office.

get some rest, dweez, have some nice chamomile tea and if the nasal thing continues, try salt water snorts (boil the water first, let it cool and dissolve some salt in it, then inhale it, one nostril at a time).  Not glamorous, but it helps with the sinus stuff.

Wouldn't it be something along the lines of:

"So as to provide a stable and loving environment for my children. An environment where they can develop both academically and emotionally, without interference."

depending on your circumstances
you could only use 3 words.

"Husband a ****"?

Or in 2 words:

Irreconcilable differences.

I moved from one apartment to the apartment right next door (bigger and got a roommate).  It is actually one of the worst moves ever.  When you move across town, you load up the truck/trailer, then you sit and drive for 10-20 minutes where you unload, then you drive back to get another load.  When you move right next door, it's pretty much non-stop.

I've read somewhere that moving is a major cause of stress. The good part is you get rid of stuff you don't need. And maybe that thing about new beginnings.

That's what happened to me when I moved 50 yards down the road.  I ended up carrying everything by hand and I even took the wardrobes and settee on a sack barrow.  I couldn't think of hiring a van for that small distance, although if I had, it wouldn't have taken 3 days and about the same amount of vertebrae.

Yes.  I've been in the same place for over 10 years, the longest sojourn ever.  I'd dread having to move, in part, because of the stuff I've accumulated.

Mishca, I totally thought it was going to be the easiest move.  I am right with you Dweez and Smokes, this move was non-stop, stressful, and all around tedious.  I was saying that same thing Dweez, if we were only packing it on a truck, and moving it. 
Six, you are right, it's been terrible for my exam steady track.  I did feel confident in Tuesday's exam.  We will see if that was in vain, such as my research paper was.  I'll make it.  Thank you guys and ladies.

I am in the same situation as yours, what are you doing for your cough?

I found some throat/cough sweets in the medicine drawer which I broke into smaller pieces so not to have too many of them.  Each piece lasts about 10 minutes and then about another 10 minutes after that the coughing returns and I start all over again.

I bought some more honey earlier on in the hope that it suppresses the cough, but in all honesty that method has never really worked for me in the past or any other type of suppressant for that matter.

I heard that mixing the honey with butter and vinegar is supposed to work wonders, but it sounds a little too disgusting for me to consider right now.

We have some simple easy stuff to fix in the freezer or the cupboard for those days when we are too tired to cook.

Last night we had "shake and bake" roast vegetables.  It did take a little prep work, but mostly sliced carrots, mushrooms, zucchini and baked potatoes.  I take the first three, slice them, throw them in a plastic bag with olive oil and then lay the slices out on cookies sheets in a 450 degree oven for a while until they slightly brown.  The baked potatoes are on the side.  It was surprisingly good and not much work.

When I'm lazier, we make some basmati rice and nuke some Indian food from Trader Joe's.  I'm assuming you don't have Trader Joes, but there's got to be some relatively inexpensive frozen food you can prep, jar of pasta sauce, spaghetti and cheese?  Or maybe it's all too much and with restaurant, there's no dishes to wash.  If we had the money, we'd eat out more, too.

Or maybe it's all too much and with restaurant, there's no dishes to wash.

When I'm tired and I don't feel like cooking dinner we eat leftovers and add something simple like rice or potatoes or a salad. Then the kitchen is a real mess with a lot of plastic containers, more dishes to wash, and the countertop is maybe even more dirty than a usual day. I hate that!!
But we don't enjoy eating out that much.

Post by: smokester on January 28, 2013, 08:31:15 AM
Thanks for the tips, they have been duly noted.

I'm pretty good at getting quality food onto the table in 15-20 minutes, but sometimes my brain just refuses to think about cooking at all and that's when I struggle.

My daughter ended up being so badly behaved shortly after we'd left the house to eat out, that we all had to come home. In the end I had to make a risotto which only contained 5% of the "love" that it should have, but I'm not sure anyone noticed.

I'm making a thin noodle dish, capellini tossed in a sauté w/olive oil, julienned zucchini, sliced garlic, minced shallots, a few shakes of red pepper flakes, a few tablespoons of toasted pignoli.  Topped with some freshly grated pecorino romano.  It's cheap and good, not especially laborious.

Some of my fondest childhood memories was my 4 siblings and I fighting over the 2 Chef-Boy-R-Dee pizza's my mom often made for a special dinner. (I loved my mom.  She tried her best but working ~80 a week in the factory and raising 5 kids alone with my grandma was tough).

It's odd that one of the most common kids meals over here when I was young, was beans on toast.  Now, if you were to serve that to your children it would probably be classed as child abuse.

That recipe has always blown me away. I HAVE to force myself to try it sometime rather than just trying to imagine it.

It will sound strange for an Italian, but when I was little we didn't know any pasta of pizza and my parents didn't like them for a long time when the habit start spreading in our place. We had a diet based on polenta, risotto, meats and the minestrone (the one I hated most)

minestrone (the one I hated most)

I thought my husband was the only person on Earth that hated minestrone.  :D

My mother worked a lot (a lot!) so many times I ate at my grandparents house or what my grandma cooked and luckily she cooked like heaven.
I think I was at least 13 yrs old the 1st time I ate something packed or frozen. On the other hand I only ate candy twice a year or so. Hell, I only ate cookies twice a week!

My missus still says I should give it to the kids when I complaining that I am really short of time, but I'd worry that the very next day they'd do a survey at their school about what they ate for dinner the night before.  That's the way my luck rolls.

I used to drink Jacksons of Picadilly.  It was the best.  Then Twinings bought them and it's nearly impossible to get now.  I think they scaled down production to a hard to get boutique brand.  It's even hard to find in the UK.  I do not have kind feelings toward Twinings as a result.

I gave up and now order F&M in large quantities every year or so.  It isn't cheap, but I figure it's comparable to drinking good coffee.  There is no good Earl Grey tea sold in the U.S.  Williamson's is very good, too, but they have also had issues with supply.  I don't know if you can still get it.  The loose leaf tea is available in the UK, but not, as far as I know, in the U.S.

I'm not keen on Twinings Earl Grey at all, as it seems really acidic to me.

$200 for an office chair is somewhere in the low middle price range.  People spend hideous amounts of money on office chairs.  I often see the cheap ones sitting on the side of the road.  The most comfortable one I ever had was a Knoll International design that someone had left on the curb.  It had really nice leather upholstery and arms that were a good height.  I imagine shopping for a new one is not an easy matter.

A sweet little male budgie.  He's about 6 months old.  A really playful little guy.  Very affectionate, and with beautiful plumage.

Quote
In captivity, budgerigars live an average of five to eight years, but life spans of 15–20 years have been reported.

I didn't know they could live that long.

Yes, although you do need to interact with them if you have them singly, as I do, as they are very social flock-oriented animals.  I talk to, sing at, and play with this bird every day for a good while and feel very guilty if I don't.  He was alone last week for an entire day and was so happy when we came home.  He first buzzed our heads to punish us and express disapproval for abandoning him, then he was extremely playful and interactive.  We move his cage around the house to have him in the same room we are occupying and he eats when we do.  When I take a nap in the afternoon, so does he.  It's pretty funny to wake up to see a little bird with its head tucked under its wing, sleeping.  When I move, he stretches his legs and wings to rouse himself.

They don't cost much to feed, but like all animals, vet bills can be pretty expensive if they get sick.  A good avian vet is hard to find, although we have some brilliant ones about 45 minutes away.

Budgies used to be the reserve of old folk here which tended to make them more endearing to kids (the old folk not the Budgies that is). Reading six's comments I'm seriously considering one myself. Maybe even two.

The bird doesn't take up lots of room.  If I need to go away for the weekend, it's easy to leave it with a neighbor or have someone pop in once a day to change its food.

I never feel alone with this little animal around.  It's odd.  They make great companions.  They are intelligent, sympathetic, funny and they sing.  Mine imitates the neighborhood birds and mimics human laughter pretty well.  It occasionally goes off on these vocal riffs that sound like speech but I can't understand what he's saying.  He's young, though.  I have a friend whose bird would pick up odd phrases from tv commercials, and could say its name.  For all you footballers, my bird likes to get on the floor of its cage and bat marbles around with his beak.  They like sports on tv, perhaps because the crowd noises are like the sound of rain.  At least it means if you watch sport, the bird will join in cheering on your team.  At $20 a pop, what's not to like?

Simon Callow's last name seems to fit him.

I have traveled a great deal with my former bird (now deceased).  But, given that I was charged $80 "handling charge" for the privilege of stowing the bird under my seat by the airline before they began charging for checking a bag, the idea of managing to take a bird along on a flight these days becomes a pricey one. 

Birds love to drive along in the car next to you in their cages, though, and if it's possible, we usually take it along on long weekend trips.  They chirp in the car, enjoy listening to the radio, etc.

I'm up in the middle of the night, contemplating going back to bed.

I opted against them because a) no usb port and b) they eat batteries.
I don't like that the keys are completely flat and it's hard to orient one's fingers in them.  I spent so many years with a laptop that the new keyboard has been impossible to get used to.  I'm so much happier writing on this laptop. 
Title: Re: What are you doing right now?
Post by: dweez on March 23, 2013, 10:09:27 PM
Ah, fair enough.  I can't stand a small form factor keyboard and the almost flat keys would probably bother me too.  I have a newer Mac at work but the keyboard is an old one that was left over (only got the computer in the transfer, not a keyboard or mouse) and I hate how it's formed too.

The way the keyboard arcs up is really annoying.  Luckily I found a program called "Synergy" long ago that allows you to share one keyboard and mouse over the network with any number of computers.  It's a Server-client model so you use the keyboard and mouse that is physically connected to the computer running Synergy Server.  Not really a big need at home but at work I use one keyboard/mouse with 6 monitors and 5 OS' (OS X, Ubuntu 12.04, Win8, Windows 2008 Server, and Windows 2012 Server).  Sorry, I can't speak enough good things about Synergy.

Link btw if anyone is interested.

There's always a money issue as it's an open source projct.  I think you're referring a recent sponsorship they had dropping them.  Oh well.  It'll survive like it did a couple years back.  I've been an @ in their IRC channel on freenode for a few years now after joining the channel about 4 years ago and just hanging around to help.

On the topic of keyboards, I recently succumbed to the mechanical keyboard "fad" and splurged on a leopold tenkeyless with cherry mx blue switches (link below if anyone's interested). It's pretty cool but I still find my wpm drastically better on my regular laptop keyboard. Placebo effect, anyone?

I got her before she went to work this morning. Seems her son accidentally unplugged it when he was hiding from his sister. She plugged it in and I installed Office.

I had that same issue recently.  I found talking to the off-shore upgrade department it was their way or the highway, but speaking to upgrades here in the U.K, I was offered lots more phones and better deals.

In the end I managed to squeeze an S3 out of them and keep all the perks I had with a lesser contract. I did have to pay 50 bucks, but they came down from 150 so a grabbed it while it was hot.

Thank you goldie. I'm really fine. Not any pain at any moment.

Hope you get through that procedure quickly and with little discomfort.  Root canals are annoying and weird.  Hours of some person rooting around in yr mouth.  Tiresome.

Indeed! It took almost 2 hrs.

Even warm water is painful.

What happened to me was very weird (although the endodontist told me it isn't uncommon): I was in an airplane 4 days ago and suddenly felt a short, powerful, painful shock of electricity in a molar (that's the best way to describe it) that literally made me jump in my seat. I had several of those sensations during the 1.5 hrs of flight. Then nothing during the 6 hrs in the airport waiting for our connection until I caught the other plane and the exact same thing happened again. It didn't bother me again since I got home.

Most root canals aren't painful in themselves, it's the injection of anaesthetic (novocaine or whatever) and the soreness in jaw muscles from having one's mouth propped open to an unusual degree for hours on end that usually bothered me afterward.

They are annoying, but you have to admire the person who knows enough to do one competently.  They take years of training.  I have often wondered what motivates people to go into dentistry.  It seems an odd calling.

I think I mentioned before I come from a family of dentists (mother, father, uncles, cousins, godparents are dentists). The person that performed my root canal is the daughter of a good friend of my father's who's an endodontist and both her daughters turned out endodontists. Since they were little girls they used to play dentist with their dolls. Me?! It never, ever crossed my mind being a dentist. I hope I'd like it cause it would have made my life way more easy.

They basically perform sculpture on living beings.  That's pretty odd, but requires a strong nerve and steady hands.  My dentist is a big man (tall) but he is strong and gentle, always talking me through the procedures, so I'm not surprised or anxious.  That's a rare combination of skills, so I expect he's paid well.

Cruel?  Yes.

Somebody who is so ill as to not be able to deal with their bodily misfunctions is hardly the person to be punishing for that failure.  Should I have bitched at my dying mother for not cleaning up after herself?  Following this logic, that should have been the case.  Worthy?  Hardly.  My mother was not a nice person, but she at least never punished me for being ill with the flu.  Her terminal illness was not pretty but I was glad, at least, to be able to clean up after her.  Why?  Because caring for the sick is a worthy thing to do.  It's hard to fathom how this kind of cruel punishment imposed on a sick child taught compassion or self-reliance for that matter.

My daughter has vomiting problems and always has had.  They think it is constipation related and recently put her on some stool softener which seems to have helped a bit.  That said, every now then she just has these episodes of vomiting without any other discernible symptoms, and while she makes it to the loo 85% of the time, sometimes it is is just impossible for her. The other 15% never a problem and would never be even if that statistic were reversed, in fact, it is nice to be reminded of the dependency your children for you as it is only too fleeting.

I didn't think of it as punishment but i guess no one wants to clean up after someone else's throw up. She wasn't cruel just bitchy from all the stress I guess for being a single mom and probably being unhappy , but that's just my guess.

Post by: 6pairsofshoes on May 15, 2013, 10:06:24 AM
I can imagine it might have gotten to her on occasion.  My mother's death can best be described as a festival of bodily fluids.  Pelvic cancer did her in and I marveled that I didn't faint or vomit myself in the process of caring for her.  It was not a pretty thing to deal with and the attendant smells were pretty challenging.

The hospice nurses who came to help (she died at home) on occasion amazed me in their ability to just tune out the offensive odors and to extend such compassion on a regular basis.

wow. I think its honorable and amazing that you took care of your mother through what was a emotional, physically draining experience. my sibling has told my mother that when she gets old and sick that they will not take care of her and they will put her in a home.  Which amazes me because she has always supported even though my sibling was a complete bottom as a teenager and still is as an adult.

Have no problem cleaning up sick at all, have cleaned up a few children's friends sick up and never bother me.
I do draw the line at my wife's self induced drinking episodes though, although these are few and far between now. ;D ;D ;D ;D

Nah, I'm a mickey-mouse exhibition builder.  We do a bit of everything, especially on "fabrication friday" (any day that the materials have not been fabricated in the factory correctly).  When we build 'full custom' stands, we tend to work with pre-fabbed mdf pieces that we assemble and wall-flats.  We also work with various exhibitions systems like octonorm, maxima, syma and other, which are like a cross between giant meccano and lego.

We have got the contract for Microsoft launches and stuff for last few years, their "Open House" display was one I was pretty proud of, and one of the few I can find piccies of:

We have built a rocket-ship, full three stage thing that came in five pieces, but mostly the stuff we build is all open at the top.  No roofs, just over-hangs/awnings and hanging ceilings (we build it on the ground and the riggers suspend it).
Just as we are not really builders, I'm convinced the designers are not real engineers.

Getting ready to go back to Sir Walter Scott's Kenilworth.  I'm not sure if I really want to read it, but myrmidon, that's a word I've learned already from this book.  It's set in Elizabethan times.  The language is a bit of a schlep late at night.

Soon enough your daughter will fall asleep or go to other room and you'll find yourself watching that silly/insufferable/30th re-run episode and asking yourself what the hell am I doing watching this?!?!. It also applies for that hateful radio station when you're driving/riding a car. Believe me, you're going to hate that radio station.  :D

Right now laying in bed sore. Trying to fall asleep.

Worse still: soon after that you will find yourself watching to the end of the episode to see what happens!

I always do that with Columbos (original series), even though I've seen every episode a dozen times or more.

Goldie, I don't know the building.  I should look it up.  I've had to enlist a dictionary to read this.  I don't know if it's because it was written in the 18th century, or because Scott liked to show off his vocabulary, but I  routinely have to look things up, which is sort of unusual.

I had a friend whose dog, Cheater, would come and make the worst smelling farts ever.  Some dogs are just not well constructed in the gastro intestinal dept., I guess.

I'm boiling verbena/apple juice in order to make jelly.  It will take hours.  But the house smells good.  I just had an amazing dinner made by my neighbors who invited us to a cookout.  Teryaki chicken thighs on the grill.  OMG.  And everything else was great, too.  Now I want a nap.

I bet it does!! Do you add pectin to gel it?

Then he should have told us to just skip to the 2nd half and don't waste time with the 1st one.  :D

Post by: 6pairsofshoes on May 26, 2013, 11:18:00 PM
No I don't add pectin.  I make an apple juice base by boiling apples and straining them first.  Then I add lemon juice and verbena infusion with sugar.  I think I started with about 25 cups of liquid and boiled it down to about 8 in a few hours.

Without the apple juice, I'd just get tea.

The jelly turned out well-- a good set, nice texture and color with a tangy lemony flavor.  I had to boil it down to about 1/3 of its original volume and it took hours.

It's good on scones.  I just whipped up a fresh batch.  I make scones once a week and we have them for breakfast every day. 

I'm having tea and smelling the fresh scones, getting hungry.

Good luck with quitting.  One day at a time, Bea.

The scones are simple and a variation on Delia Smith's recipe.  Flour, leavening, butter and some half & half.  I put homemade jam on them.  It's what we eat for breakfast every day.  Just one.  I bake about once a week and we reheat them before consuming.  We used to buy English muffins at the supermarket, but these are much better.

I have my game paused now but I'm trying to kill a level 63 Vermivorous the Invincible (http://borderlands.wikia.com/wiki/Vermivorous_the_Invincible?file=Vermivorous_the_Invincible..._x2%2521) with a level 60 character. He's bigger than the farmhouse I'm trying to hide in.

Enjoying the attention I am receiving from a long term fan of mine.  I am a little concerned over his multiple personality disorder, though.  In the past he has corresponded with me using the name Truth Jones (http://www.youtube.com/user/TheSalvation1000) but now he is using HERP DERP (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC09LTA3uudEPhoTjMTGB6lQ)

I try my best to make him happy.  Just the other day he asked if I could make a thread about him, but I haven't the skill to glorify the man in the manner befitting such an amazing individual, so I am mentioning him instead.  I'm sure he will find out that I at least honoured his existence in this thread.

What I'm thinking is, if we all subscribe to his YouTube channels, he will be extra happy that he is so loved.  So if y'all could mosey over to his latest YT channel, HERP DERP (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC09LTA3uudEPhoTjMTGB6lQ), and click the red button to subscribe, I'd be mighty obliged....

(If he doesn't see it, someone please let him know it's here.  I know some of you know who I'm talking about, and are maybe his friend.  If that is the case, can you please encourage him to go the full 9 yards and send me death threats?  Then we can work on getting into the news headlines)

Is Herp threatening or just playful? I would subscribe to his channel but I fear it wouldn't end well.

Right now I here is both body and soul.  I've been working so hard lately that I am either too tired to concentrate in the evenings. or too physically spent to make it to the computer.

I ripped my chin open. I used my cell phone's front facing camera to view the wound, and used New-skin to seal it. Hurts like a madam, but I realized then that I am living in the bless'ed future. I used the optics from a cell phone to replace a hand mirror and a light source, and I used a vial of liquid to seal the wound rather than a band-aid.

Get me a bless'ed replicator and I'd be happy.

Yeah, the future that we were promised in the 80's would be here by the 90's is finally here.  Though virtual reality is pretty lame still.  If Nintendo could out out a 3d head set in the 90's (as much as it was unbearable after 30min), someone should have been able to make one that leaves the VirtualBoy for dead by now.

Replicators are coming soon, I'm sure.

I hope it's nothing serious, goldie, and that you are planning a nice meal afterwards.  I had a PowerBar for lunch at 2 p.m. yesterday.  It kept me from starving, but it's hardly a reasonable substitute.  The older I get, the less I like to skip meals.

I had to starve myself this morning for a blood test.  After that I didn't have enough time for a proper breakfast, so I ate a slice of toast, a peach and a banana.  And I made so many mistakes today.

Post by: 6pairsofshoes on October 26, 2013, 02:15:01 AM
I'm still working on the recipe, but mostly it contains garlic, onions, jalapeno pepper, cumin seeds, cumin and corriander powder, some paprika, salt, bay leaf, tomato, carrot, celery, and usually some greens thrown in at the end.  The lentils, about 1 c. get washed down with a box of chicken broth (1 quart).  The vegs, begin w/onions, garlic, get cooked in a little oil until they are translucent/tender, then I throw the lentils in w/tomatoes (small can) and the stock.  This cooks for about 1/2 hour and then the greens go in (chard, beet greens, spinach, kale, any of this works.  2 heaping cups cut.)

Oh, and I should get back to work, even thoug
