  1. I aten't dead. I've been away on a holiday for the last month. Just got back on Saturday night and still trying to recover from the jetlag. Sorry for no warning, but I'm a bit paranoid about posting this sortof thing online. SWMBO and I went to the antipodes (our antipodes - Europe. Not the European antipodes, which is where I live). We enjoyed most of it, but the crowds got a bit much at times. One of our most enjoyable memories from the trip was sitting in the Black Forest eating black forest cake...
  2. and here I was thinking I was the only person who makes that joke I often do when written. When spoken, it's almost always Microsux...
  3.  Please to be sharing the recipe with the rest of us? 
  4. Inquiring minds want to know...
  5. We were meeting with a cake maker at lunchtime and gave her one. She agreed on the deliciousness.
  6. Can you "follow" three, then unfollow two (or even all three) once the account unlocks?
  7. SWMBO and I made Whole Mandarin and Dark Chocolate Cake cupcakes last night. They are delicious.
  8. @Jasper_the_2nd: Have you looked through the Stonehaven ones? There are a few that have outfits similar to trenchcoats...

    Well, the Disney castle is very defensible. Maybe they're not as kiddie-friendly as they try to make out...

    I think (haven't ever worked there, but guessing) that for international mail they mainly care about the country field. And let that country deal with the rest of the address when it gets there. My sympathies too.

    I hope SWMBO and I don't have that experience if we end up getting the reservation we're on the waitlist for... The restaurant was voted best in the world, so we thought we'd give it a go (but it was waitlist only) They are an awful lot, aren't they.

    Perhaps dazzle camouflage might be more appropriate...

    SWMBO and I bought a new mattress (and ensemble base) about two weeks ago. Expensive, but necessary. And we upsized at the same time... New ensemble base has drawers built in, so it means we can store the bedding right in there. And when not right, you're pleasantly surprised.

    ...until she needs something When they filmed The Lord of the Rings, the contract they had with the farmer where they built The Shire said they had to return the farm to the original state once they'd finished filming. Fortunately for him, he got a second opportunity to cash in on tourism when they went back for The Hobbit. https://allthatsinteresting.com/mehran-karimi-nasseri https://youtu.be/OMYrX2Z-8Ec

    Taking this out of context to see if @TheAuldGrump and @PaganMegan agree with your comments...
