Oh, dear Puglet. I'm here....was deep into the grid. Thank you so much for caring. It was really scary last night.....my chair is old (as am I) but I surely don't need it to fall apart with me in it. I have a young man who drives for me and helps me with the upkeep of the house. He's kind of like a grandson. At any rate, I called him as soon as I got into my room and he came over and found the screw came from my arm rest....boy, did I ever feel foolish. I finally got to sleep around 7:00AM.
2:01 am
grannyrose

night, dee. sweet dreams, hun
2:02 am
puglet

oh so glad Peach it wasent worse and you are fine
2:02 am

2:42 am
puglet

brb
2:42 am
rururocks

me neither. I've never had plum pudding either
2:42 am
grannyrose

lol...pugs...one year we will be together...or perhaps i can send you the recipe..the plum part is actually dried fruit...it was once made with preserved plums.
2:43 am
grannyrose

okay...then i send both of you the recipe. you cannot die without ever having had plum pudding.
2:43 am
rururocks

ok
2:43 am

2:46 am
Jackanory

What's to hate ruru?
2:46 am
puglet

for me the fruit is dried and bitter tasting
2:46 am
rururocks

ugh.. the plastic fruit, nuts, and too sweet
2:46 am
grannyrose

pugs, you soak the fruit in brandy before you cook the cake.
2:47 am
rururocks

I wouldn't waste the brandy :D
2:47 am
Jackanory

Obviously the wrong recipes ...
2:47 am
grannyrose

and once the cake is cooked, you pierce it with a skewer, and pour more brandy over it.
2:47 am
puglet

I have never made one---and the ones given to me, you could knock a man out with it
2:48 am
grannyrose

jack....so true
2:48 am
puglet

2:49 am
rururocks

they make great door stops pugs

2:52 am
grannyrose

ruru, sun-dried grape...a special type of grape
2:52 am
rururocks

2:53 am
rururocks

I actually made the cakes at a bakery when I was in college
2:54 am
rururocks

fruit cakes that is
2:54 am
grannyrose

my father actually grew up on the murray river. his parents grew crops of grapes for sultanas. every summer when the grapes had to be picked. the schools in the area were emptied as every pair of hands were needed to harvest the crops.
2:54 am
puglet

and were they good?
2:55 am
rururocks

no.. they were commercial and the awful ones
2:55 am
puglet

is it a purple grape Rose

2:55 am
Jackanory

2:56 am
Jackanory

Sultanas end up yellow
2:57 am
Haz1558

I always thought that raisins were dried black grapes and sultanas were dried green grapes. Is that correct? Good morning/evening all.
2:57 am
puglet

morning Haz
2:57 am
Jackanory

Can you really not get them in the US?
2:58 am
puglet

we have green grapes but no ideal their name
2:58 am
grannyrose

it may surprise our american friends, but small boxes of sultanas are considered by our school children as the ultimate snack for scholl lunch boxes.
2:58 am
Jackanory

We have Ernest Adams fruit cakes here and they are yummy - but not cheap
2:58 am

3:18 am
grannyrose

strange..another thing you and don have in common. he hates marzipan
3:18 am
puglet

what is it?
3:19 am
grannyrose

almond flavoured icing
3:19 am
puglet

some kind of blackbird?
3:20 am
grannyrose

you put it on the cake underneath the final icing.
3:20 am
puglet

ahh, thanks
3:20 am
Haz1558

If you're icing fruit cakes, marzipan is used to act as a buffer between the cake and the icing - stops the fruit from discolouring the icing and also helps to smooth the surface.
3:22 am
puglet

are these fruitcakes you are making good for a hundred years or more? Like these here
3:23 am
Haz1558

Our fruitcakes are edible so they don't get to last a hundred years.
3:23 am
grannyrose

*giggle* if you soak enough brandy into them.
3:24 am

if I ever get the treat to travel afar I will have to try your countries cakes

3:46 am

3:50 am

no, it just means the results weren't in yet. Which means nothing in itself, probably just busy laborants and maybe some people on holidays.

that's lovely. what a bright young man.
4:26 am

very very proud. He did well, and worked hard for it, and is very proud of himself now too. Which I think is a good thing.
4:26 am
sprite

yes, he is, mab!
4:27 am
mab

what was his topic?
4:27 am
puglet

I would think so too--and all that has happen it has to boost him up too
4:28 am
mab

it is always good when young people feel academically proud, i think.
4:29 am
sprite

quantum physics, mab. He went to CERN with school last year and decided to do his thesis on that. Then he got really into things and found a coach on the university of Amsterdam, who enjoyed working with him on the subject, and his teacher at school demanded he took things a bit further than necessary for school. So he has really exceeded all expectations.
4:29 am
sprite

yes, after flunking last year, he really needed a boost. And this one he created for himself, so that is all the better.
4:30 am
mab

that's wonderful.
4:30 am
mab

and fascinating too.
4:30 am
sprite

lol... ok, proud mama rant over now...
4:34 am
puglet

could I please have a clue for the f5-24
4:34 am
mab

it is just that it is a difficult field of study, and he must have great self discipline as well as sheer intelligence - i love successful young person stories.
4:34 am
grannyrose

pugs, if you believe in God, you have fa5
4:35 am
sprite

fa5: I like him best, he is my f**orite + you and me
4:35 am

4:36 am
sprite

so true, mab. It is a field of study that didn't even exist in my youth. So sometimes he kind of loses me when he talks about it, lol. But it doesn't matter. He is so enthusiastic, it is wonderful to watch.

Reminds me of a joke. A man dies and goes to he 4.5. The devil says he has a choice of where to spend eternity. He throws open a door and the man sees people threshing round in a pit of snakes. 'No way,' he says, 'I'm not going there.' The devil opens the next door and the man sees people being tortured by ghastly monsters with whips and prongs. 'No!' he cries. 'You have one more choice,' says the devil. He opens another door and the man sees a load of people standing up to their waists in sh*t, drinking cups of tea. 'That doesn't look too bad,' says the man. 'You can put me in here.' Whereupon the devil blows a whistle and yells, 'Okay, tea break's over, back on your heads!'
5:46 am

we call it all pop.you can blame it on the very first way it came bottled. they used to use what is called "codd stoppers" these beautifull collectable bottle have a marble in the neck of the bottle and a rubber gasket up by the top.the carbonation of the drink would hold the marble in place. To open these, you would take a pencil or twig and rap sharply on top of the marble,breaking the seal. This action would always make a loud "pop" sound and so the name stuck

3:41 pm

I complained to my son, who works for Google about it. He said he has a knack for recognizing malware.
3:41 pm

instead load ccleaner and ad-aware
3:41 pm

3:41 pm

why crossy. This was recommended by a site administrator

3:44 pm
bichon

what exactly is bloat ware?
3:44 pm
crosshair

i have done it to myself in the past lol
3:45 pm
crosshair

bloat ware is the crap that comes along with what you really wanted.like making its parent site your home page,adding 5 nifty new tool bars and its own proprietray downloader all all in one big bundle
3:45 pm
crosshair

then the fun is to try and get rid of it all
3:46 pm
bichon

Okay, that happened to me recently. What a pain to get rid of all that crap
3:47 pm
crosshair

it can be.once i had to go right into the computer registry to remove it all
3:47 pm
bichon

I don't know what the computer registry is, but lots of times when I was uninstalling stuff, it seemed to take forever
3:48 pm

well,i do not advise going into the registry unless you have someone with you who is familliar with it
3:48 pm

one wrong move in there and your computer becomes a very expensive door stop

I discovered the malware today when I tried to play QuotePower [Scrabs and Haz play too] It just gave me ads, but my Chromebook didn't have that. Their site admin guided me to a Malware detector he uses

No, wouldn't do that

3:59 pm

ok,looking at it now
4:01 pm

ok.it is a good one.system restore is a feature in the last 3 windows operating systems where you can select a date off the provided list and return your computer to that time.thus removing any problem software you have installed since that date
4:02 pm

I have windows 7, is that the last 3? I don't know if I'd want to do that unless I was desparate

4:03 pm
crosshair

you can go back one day,3 or even 10 days
4:04 pm
crosshair

yes,it is on win 7
4:04 pm
bichon

As I said, only if I was desparate.
4:05 pm
crosshair

well,i do not load too muc critical data on a daily basis so it is hand to remove one stubborn,recently loaded program
4:05 pm

handy
4:06 pm

that way my computer is sparkly clean all the time.there is no time for mal-ware to build up
4:06 pm

that in conjunction with c cleaners and window security,i am in good shape
4:08 pm
crosshair

that mal-ware program seems ok,but i have never used it myself
4:20 pm

So far it has. I am able to play Quote Power again

sometimes i crave beef, and what is better than a tender roast? with baby carrots.
5:42 pm
MimiCat

This was my first attempt at a roast in my new slow cooker and I was nervous. I'll have enough left over for great roast beef sandwiches with horseradish mustard.
5:42 pm
MimiCat

I didn't have room for carrots this time as I really wanted lots of onion wedges and potatoes...next time.
5:43 pm
mab

yum
5:43 pm
Nef

back again. I love to use the slow cooker for roasts, Mimi. it's so easy and they always turn out so tender when we do them that way.
5:44 pm
MimiCat

I used a can of root beer with the canned and dry onion soup because it is supposed to tenderize.
5:45 pm
mab

onions are the best. root beer i must remember.
5:46 pm
Nef

My new "old" cooking device is a pressure cooker; we bought one several years ago, use it for a bit; and it got put up and out of sight so haven't used it for a while. Ifound it a few weeks ago and started using it again and it also makes roasts so tender that they melt in your mouth!
5:46 pm
MimiCat

Can't believe I went this long without one! My frame of reference was the old crock pots but they just didn't hold enough so I didn't bother. The cooker I have is 8 qts., so plenty of room for a whole chicken or a whole roast plus veggies.
5:47 pm
Nef

RooT Beer? That's interesting. My daughter uses Pepsi or coke as a tenderizer for ham though.
5:47 pm
mab

i wonder if it is the sugar that tenderizes.
5:47 pm
MimiCat

I used a rump roast instead of chuck because I wanted lots of meat for sandwiches. Yes, Nef, any dark cola works...don't know why.

Hands down, no word grates on Americans more than "whatever," a public opinion survey says.

The casual "whatever" was rated the most annoying word by 38 per cent of 1,173 adults surveyed in early December by the Marist College Institute for Public Opinion, based in Poughkeepsie, N.Y. That is up from 32 per cent a year earlier, pollsters said. What's more, "whatever" has topped the annoying word charts for five straight years.

"The word can be very dismissive and rude," said Mary Griffith, media director for Marist. "It's a put-down to some extent and it can signal to the other person that what they are saying is not important."

we got snow after sleet a week or so ago and the streets still have thick layers of ice on them. St. Paul even had extra snow emergency days (meaning no parking on certain roads until they are cleared curb-to-curb) afterwards and we're still driving on slick snotty roads

It was sort of creepy to drive over Homestake Pass (the Continental Divide near Butte). The roads were, more or less, fine. But there was NO other traffic, which made me worry that the road was closed and I hadn't heard.....

11:12 pm
stidmama

Tom doesn't like baths, so I was thinking about myself when I designed the space... only later I learned that IF he had a long-enough, deep-enough tub would Grant like to have a bathtub. I feel sad that I didn't make his bathroom big enough for him to have one. :-(

Today when we were at the house all the gas lines are in. The water lines are (mostly) in.

I very rarely eat things other people have prepared. Mother's food is safe, my mother in law (who hasn't blessed us with her presense in years) needs supervision because she is unfamiliar with what to look for and avoid. Usually I just bring my own food.

hi stid -- is the house finished yet?

not even close, nan. It's taking so long, and I am so tired. Had been hoping we would be in a position this month that I could tile my shower while I have actual time, but it might have to wait until after we move in at this rate.

I have a year from the day the construction loan was signed, so technically I have until the end of July, but we have been in the aparment for nine months now and it is getting old.
