I've only heard good things about IPads, JMC. As long as you have some good virus/malware/adware protection loaded onto the tablet you'll have good results. I'm a big fan of AVG 2015 and Windows Defender.

AVG has a sample download. It scans your computer, tells you all the junk it found and then prompts you to buy the protection to get rid of it all. LOL. However, it is relatively inexpensive and really does an excellent job.

The bunnies and I went to bed at 10pm and were rudely awoken, as we are every NYE, by fireworks x 30 minutes from the ski resort across the valley, from 10:30-11. Grrrr. Boom, boom.
10:10 am

I love fireworks. It's the sound of celebration.

Ok I see :-)
10:12 am

I skied from 17-23, then life got in the way. I wouldn't do it again, although I think about it.
10:15 am

I stick to XC-skiing and snowshoeing.

11:38 am

Did you hear about the toddler who shot his mother in a Walmart? The idiot woman was carrying a handgun in her purse and the kid dug it out and accidentally shot her.
11:41 am
rururocks

I read about that.. why wasn't her safety on.. who takes a gun out shopping with a small child.. what an idiot
11:42 am

why wasn't she watching her kid either

11:48 am

Hope all goes well with the surgery
11:49 am

The kid is ruined for life, I suspect. Emotional baggage? How about carrying around "I killed my mother" your whole life?
11:50 am
rururocks

no kidding molly
11:50 am
rururocks

this is the hip surgery river? I hope it goes well too
11:53 am
Riverdance

yes I am getting a new left hip....yay! Wow, was just reading back about that shooting. What the h*** is a Mom doing with a loaded gun in her bag.
11:58 am
rururocks

that's the question.. she was licensed to carry a firearm as she worked for the Defense Dept. but still.. why not keep your purse on your arm if you have a gun and why wasn't the safety latch on? She's incredibly stupid and now dead because of it. That poor kid is never going to be the same.
11:59 am
MollyL

If you are anywhere near a young child you carry a firearm on your person. Period.
12:02 pm
rururocks

I think you mean never molly
12:02 pm
rururocks

I mean Kids scare me.. but I wouldn't be packin' because of it :D
12:03 pm
MollyL

No, I meant that if she is required to carry a firearm at all times (which I doubt she was) it should be strapped to her and not in her purse.
12:04 pm
rururocks

oh.. well.. that would have been better too I guess
12:05 pm
rururocks

I don't think I read she has to carry one at all times.. but I don't know for certain.. likely she just carries it in her purse and left it there.. I don't really know
12:08 pm

Both her and her husband were gun enthusiasts. They had hunting licenses and had a special license to carry concealed guns. The purse had a pocket specifically for carrying a concealed firearm. The purse was left unattended and a curious toddler reached in unzipped the purse and shot. Tragic.

I'm not afraid of roasting either

I roast a chicken every other week. I get lots of meals out of it. And chicken for salads.
5:12 pm

And stock, but I'm kind of stocked up on stock right now. Still working through the turkey stock from Thanksgiving.

I hear the food trendies are calling it "bone broth" now. That made me laugh.
5:17 pm
rururocks

bone broth?
5:17 pm
MollyL

No joke
5:17 pm
rururocks

wow
5:17 pm
rururocks

that's a marrow way of thinking I guess
5:18 pm
MollyL

Like people haven't been putting bones in water to make soup for thousands of years
5:18 pm
MollyL

But I guess when you've spent your life opening a can of Campbell's, "bone broth" sounds intriguing.
5:20 pm
rururocks

well.. that's a new one on me
5:22 pm
MollyL

Next up? Coffee bean broth.
5:24 pm
rururocks

clear hydrogen broth
5:25 pm
rururocks

tea broth
5:56 pm
rastapopolous

well, there is vegetable broth, to distinguish it
5:57 pm
rastapopolous

not everyone uses the bones. It's hard to find beef with the bone still in it, anymore
5:57 pm
rastapopolous

I know, I hunt for it
5:57 pm
rastapopolous

And stuff like miso, broth without a bone in sight. Not so foolish
5:59 pm
rastapopolous

or there's broth made from a packet of chemicals - lots of people use that instead of real bones.
6:00 pm
MollyL

You can get beef bones if you ask the butcher at the grocery store.

Turkey for New Year's? People eat a lot of turkey over the holidays. We only do turkey on Thanksgiving.

'Round these parts it's tradition to have pork on New Year's Day.

I agree though that all the holiday food could make one ob 5/14!

7:16 pm
cybernan

Isn't ham traditional for Christmas in the US?
7:17 pm
MollyL

I don't know. We have beef tenderloin for Christmas.
7:17 pm
MollyL

To me, ham is more of an Easter dinner.
7:17 pm
car.eeyore

We also have beef. Ham for Easter
7:17 pm

we often have some sort of beef roast at Christmas...
7:17 pm

I started serving the tenderloin at New Year with my own family -- hubby was sick of turkey by then!
7:18 pm

we rarely had turkey other than on Thanksgiving...
7:19 pm

I don't like turkey enough to have it for Thanksgiving and then turn around and have another one on Christmas.

We often will get a turkey at the great sale prices at Thanksgiving and save it until New Years or our Super Bowl Party
7:20 pm

We have turkey on both, but then they are a couple of months apart here and it is the only time of the year that we have turkey as a rule.

love having turkey - good for lots of leftovers - get it whenever there is a good price on them
7:23 pm
car.eeyore

We don't have Thanksgiving here, so we don't usually have leftovers, so we get a hankering midway through the winter.
7:24 pm
MollyL

On the few occasions we go elsewhere for Thanksgiving, I do a turkey breast. Gotta have the turkey sandwich fixings the next day.

7:29 pm

I loved mine too, but I have found that the quality of their shoes has gone Waaaaaay down. We have had to return so many in the last couple of years...slippers, rain boots, sneakers.
7:29 pm
penquis

they're pink (yuck) but they don't show.... ;o)
7:29 pm
car.eeyore

But the good thing is that they will just replace them, but our closest store is an hour away
7:29 pm
penquis

well at least it's a no hassle return...
7:29 pm
MollyL

Never had a quality problem with anything from LL Bean
7:30 pm
penquis

and with a Beans credit card, it's free postage both ways...
7:30 pm
car.eeyore

Neither had we, until the shoes the last few years.
7:30 pm
penquis

i returned a sweater once several years ago....
7:30 pm
car.eeyore

They are awesome about returns...just wish we didn't have the problems. I heard they are outsourcing a lot of things now :(
7:30 pm
penquis

no idea...
7:31 pm
MollyL

I have to have a sale price and a discount code to shop LL Bean though. They are pricey.
7:31 pm

I'm just questioning whether future understanding is a necessary requirement for current usage.....
7:50 pm
Dorens

hah. i wonder who would determine the requirements??
7:50 pm
stidmama

well... I can read the old German script (thanks to my grandmother) but most middle schoolers in the U.S. cannot even read normal cursive! So... I teach my kiddos in 3rd grade cursive, knowing that its utility is rapidly fading since most of their peers will not be able to decipher the characters.
7:52 pm
Dorens

my (former) school teaches cursive in second grade... seems a bit early, but everything seems to be accelerated now.
7:52 pm
stidmama

I think we should focus on whether the people with whom we are currently interacting can understand us, and leave future generations keys to understanding. After all, the meaning of middle ages paintings is harder for us to make out, but the meaning was clear (apparently) to the people at the time!
7:53 pm
rastapopolous

Someone can build a career out of deciphering old acronyms, along with old cursive lol
7:53 pm
stidmama

I think 2nd grade is a little early to think about mastery at least, Doren, but many of my students were so interested in cursive that they were "practicing" at home -- usually incorrectly, of course.
7:53 pm
stidmama

indeed, rasta! (LTNS - long time no see) Hope all is well on your side of the continent?

7:54 pm

Old english can be a hoot, but my Russian professor had us reading Old Russian, which was really fascinating... I mean, you're already at a bit of a disadvantage what with the Cyrilic alphabet and all that.
7:54 pm
rastapopolous

uncontinent? excontinent?
7:54 pm
stidmama

cold here, too. I moved my car about thirty minutes ago and the ice on the windshield was already pretty thick. Luckily was just in the driveway so didn't have to scrape.
