  1. 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...
  2.  Please to be sharing the recipe with the rest of us? 
  3. Inquiring minds want to know...
  4. We were meeting with a cake maker at lunchtime and gave her one. She agreed on the deliciousness.
  5. Can you "follow" three, then unfollow two (or even all three) once the account unlocks?
  6. SWMBO and I made Whole Mandarin and Dark Chocolate Cake cupcakes last night. They are delicious.
  7. @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...

    One time my father heard a rattling at the front door. He opened the door and found the cat hanging on the handle pressing on the lever with her paw. If the door hadn't been locked, she may have been able to open it...

    Someone in the city I used to live did something like that, imitating a mobile speed camera. After about a month the motorists had started to realise that it was a fake and were back to speeding past. Then the cops set up a real mobile speed camera just past it...

    Oh, I wasn't aware of that issue over there. Here we have pretty much all stations offering ethanol-cut fuel, but most still offer real petrol as well.

    As I understand it, ethanol is terrible for any engine which hasn't been specifically designed for it. If your lawnmower (or other engine) doesn't explicitly say it can handle it, don't use it.

    Yeah, more like that. Although the cherry jam was more the colour of the other one...

    I had the jam under the cream - I find it's easier to get it to stay that way.
