Default What's (not) Bugging You?

A topic with a difference. If you have something negative to say, you must also say something positive -- and vice versa.

Sorry silhouette, we all have lives you know and need to be other places at times... usually, it seems, the same times you are on here!

If you would like to post a schedule, we'll see what we can do to accommodate you... can't promise anything though.

Got a new camera for Xmas. It's dead out of box. However, the lens is much better than that on my previous one and it fits :-)

I have never had a dry turkey yet, people who complain that turkeys are dry are not cooking them properly. You have to be careful slow cooking meat in the oven, as if you cook it too slow it can make it go off instead of cooking it, especially in a fan oven.

I stuff my turkey with a it of stuffing, a whole onion, a whole apple and then another bit of stuffing, upside down and then turn it for the last half hour to let the skin brown on the top... voilà!!... one perfectly cooked, juicy turkey!!

If I were you Worldlife, I would keep well out of your wife's domain, unless specifically invited in... after all, she's done very well without our help whilst caring for you during your recovery. After all, us women need somewhere in the home we can claim as our domain, now don't we?!

Dear Foxy Lady - thanks for the cookery tips

Agree when cooking at low temperatures it is important to have a start temperature that kills off most of the bacteria mainly on the outer surfaces or in cuts.

The other issue of course is the accuracy of the oven thermostat. Our fan over is correct but the adjacent conventional oven is ten degrees C under and we have to allow for that in our settings.

We cook any stuffing that is to be plated separately as you cannot guarantee internal stuffing will reach a safe temperature - particularly if it is a stuffing containing minced meat.

If I am banned from the kitchen I will ban my beloved from my car or my den!!

lol,
<snip>
As for seeking a date with me.... where on earth did that come from??!! Sorry to disappoint but I feel I must inform you that unfortunately you have the wrong 'bits' for that ever to be an option... plus, my wife wouldn't be too pleased about it either!

Smile Re: What's (not) Bugging You?

Since learning to drive herself, my other half has become more nervous when travelling in the passenger seat and like your wife, she continuously grabs the door handle, corner of the seat, door compartment, in fact anything that can afford her stability. Not that I drive erratically because I don't but she is noticeably more nervous a passenger now than she used to be!!

Myself, I must admit to noticing the same as yourself when in the passenger seat, kerbs, hedges, parked cars, etc., seem far nearer and much to close for comfort!! Think it must be a control thing... when not driving we feel out of control and the driver does not drive the way we do, so therefore makes us feel nervous. Also, it's very strange sitting on the nearside of the car when you're used to sitting more near the middle of the road on the offside!

LOL

I was all set for the turn of the clock and year but my computer clock was slow!

I went out and took in the air from 2014 and then it started to rain!

I may have fixed my Internet connection but I may also have upset RAMBO!

I do like the opportunities that a fresh start can bring but I have too many websites to change the date on!

Sometimes I struggle to find something to say and sometimes I don't!

andrew... what on earth was all that about???

druid... don't know why you hate new years honey, or why you are glad to see the back of the last one but things could be worse. Look on the bright side and see that the glass is half full, not half empty... look for the upside of everything, there always is one, it's just sometimes hidden very, very well... but it is there!!

I am sort of glad to see the back of 2013 as we have had some problems, for starters early in Jan we had quite a serious house fire at 4am in which both myself and my wife were almost asphyxiated by the thick black smoke that filled the house but on the positive side our German shepherd dog Max the 3rd saved us by waking us up and according to the emergency services almost certainly saved our lives.

Max the 3rd was abandoned to starve in Wales and we gave him a home so He repaid the debt by rescuing us!

Ha! Max just wanted you to open the door so he could get out!

Joking apart, that is both a sad and nice story.

I do see where you are coming from. I get very easily attached to the stupidest of things and I see no reason not to feel some grief at the "loss" of a year.

I do tend to take a different approach on that myself. I have a positive view on the past making us who we are today, whether the past was bad or good. I simply look forward to the natural "break" as it is an obvious time to reassess things and forge forward with the likes of a "fresh start".

*looks up*

I really should have gone shopping today but I do have enough to be able to live until tomorrow.

That reminds me I had better get some new smoke alarms to replace those with ten year battery life that have failed after two years

Glad your and wife were OK Druid and that Max was a dog hero.
