  1. I think when people are deleting cookies and then CC works it is just a coincidence.
  2. I am so sorry to hear of the death of your friend. Those emails and phone calls are the hardest to make. Health can turn on a dime. The day before my dad died, the staff was talking rehab and making the arrangements. The next morning they said they only had one more cocktail of antibiotics to try and if they didn't work then all that was left was comfort care. He died that afternoon.
  3. I loved my visit to Giverny years ago. I still make recipes from the Monet cookbook I bought .
  4. I will say you escaped! It would never occur to me to dump a friend because of the TV shows they watch.
  5. Absolutely! Sun exposure is the number one cause.
  6. Right now Chrome is working for me on my PC. Edge is not. The problem is not resolved.
  7. @ger_77 I am so sorry for your loss. Hugs and healing for you. @St. Louis Sal Let's celebrate your new wheelchair! I'm thrilled for you.
  8. Glad they caught it. I didn't realize it, but basal cell carcinoma is the most frequent form of all cancers. It also grows very slowly and unless left to grow unchecked for a long time, fairly easy to treat. Prayers for you, Graham.
  9. Good morning, everyone. It is nice to wake up to a CC where the gremlin mayhem is missing. I hope more of us experience that phenomenon. I do like Nachos and make them now and then as a treat. But, I limit that due to carb and calorie count. The drink of the day sounds interesting. I'm looking forward to the recipe. I'm sure I'd like the wine. I have mixed emotions over today's meal. Part of me asks why one would ruin perfectly good lobster by putting it in mac and cheese? The other part reminds me it is comfort food. I admit I have a prejudice against mac and cheese. I think it stems back to college days when I would buy 4 boxes of mac and cheese for $5 and eat for a week. I didn't have the money to buy the butter and milk to go with the box of mac and cheese, so just made it with water. I vowed back then to never eat mac and cheese again and I haven't. For those who love it, there are many variations. Ina Garten gives us an easy one for a busy weekday night: https://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/ina-garten/lobster-mac-and-cheese-recipe-1948798 I always enjoy Dinner at the Zoo. This one comes with some different seasonings. https://www.dinneratthezoo.com/lobster-mac-and-cheese/ And here's another that is slightly different. https://therecipecritic.com/lobster-mac-and-cheese/ I hope everyone has something to celebrate today.
  10. @rafinmd Thank you for the explanation. It sure sets a person's mind at ease as we all wish the best of the best for our Roy. @mamaofami Thank you for giving us the good side of your new aide. It was great he spent the night at the hospital with Sam. @JAM37 I'm glad to hear that things are beginning to look up even though it sounds like DD and DSIL are still pretty sick. It was wonderful that you and your DH took the little guy so they could concentrate on getting well. @Horizon chaser 1957 I also found your Etsy shop. Nice stuff but I'll bet there isn't much left! I didn't make the beet reuben today, although I was tempted. Instead I made a big pot of Muzzy's Spicy 7 bean soup. Except I used 13 types of beans and I threw in the seasoning package and added 2 cups of Cabernet Sauvignon and some extra red pepper flakes. Mom's recipe was the base. I just expanded things a bit. It was sooooo good. I hope I don't ruin things, but the PC has been working on Chrome for over 24 hours now. Apparently the poison cookie I got has expired. Edge still isn't working, so it must still have the poison cookie even though I have deleted them all.
  11. Ok, the fact that it is no emergency is good. Radiation can really zap you. Warm hugs and prayers, Roy.
  12. Review away! We all want to hear about it. In Alaska Sue and I only at in the MDR one evening. We did go there for lunch on embarkation day and the day in Juneau. The menus really didn't grab me and make me interested. We did really enjoy the Pinnacle, Tamarind, and Sel de Mer. We also loved our Halibut Fish and Chips at Icy Straight Point. They were wonderful!
  13. @Crazy For Cats Maybe it is time to inspect around the outside of the house and find out where those critters are getting in. Years ago I did that and we caulked up a bunch of potential sites. Then I went around the foundation from inside where the cement block meets the sill plate and stuffed some steel wool in there. That kept them out for a good 10 years until they found the weak spot in the front porch. I forgot to mention that I like a B&B after dinner occasionally. I haven't had one in decades, but they are good!
  14. From the HAL website: Guests will be assigned a boarding time to embark, which will be provided closer to the sailing date. Physical distancing will be managed in the cruise terminal as guests arrive and check in. Please download the Navigator mobile app for access to your digital boarding pass and more.  For the health and safety of all, guests arriving to the terminal more than 20 minutes prior to their assigned check-in time will be asked to return at their designated time in order to maintain proper controls on capacity. Assigned check-in times will be processed initially at approximately 50 days prior to the sailing. Updates will be processed again at 21, 14, 7 and 3 days prior to sailing. If the time shows "To Be Assigned" it will be assigned with the next update processed for the sailing based on the above cadence of assignments. Many of us have seen our boarding times change as we get closer to sailing. Ours started out mid afternoon and ended up being at noon. Keep in mind that we all want to be on board early and we all have special circumstances that we want considered.
  15. Good morning, everyone. CC is still working for me this morning. I'm sorry @Seasick Sailor to hear that you are still having problems. I was hoping there was a fix. Maybe I should have bought a more expensive blue tooth keyboard. I remember having that brandied fruit that was all the rage back in the early 70's. You added a cup of bar sugar and a cup of fruit to it each week and the thing grew to huge proportions and took over the whole kitchen. It was good over a pound cake or vanilla ice cream. I finally got rid of mine when I didn't have anything big enough to store it in. I've worked as a wait person and my brother is the chef in the family. Restaurant work is hard work for little pay. Despite my brother working full time cooking in a restaurant, he never had health insurance and didn't make enough to afford more than an efficiency apartment. I waited tables during the summers when I was in college. That was my tuition money. Today's meal in an interesting one. When I first saw Beet Reuben I was sure Rich had made a typo. But, beet reubens are the real deal. They say if seasoned correctly the beet can taste just like corned beef. Now, I don't know that I would go that far! I do know I had a great vegetarian reuben at the Veggie Grill in Seattle when I met @Cruising-along Carolyn before our Alaskan cruise. Here's a recipe to get you started: https://lynnecurry.com/2018/04/beet-reuben/ The Food Network says the trick is in the spices. https://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/food-network-kitchen/beet-reuben-4587830 And here's a quick fix: https://www.delishknowledge.com/vegetarian-beet-reuben-sandwich/ Have a great day, everyone, and may CC work for you all.
  16. Ok, that is three of us. You, me, and Crazy for Cats report that CC is working better. I've been able to operate as normal this afternoon. I've stayed logged in all afternoon and I can like posts and respond. Please stay that way!! @1ANGELCAT I'm glad you have trust in your doctor and things are moving quickly. You are right, it is not knowing that is the worst part. Once you get a definitive diagnosis, you have a course you can chart. Keeping you close! @JazzyV That was a sad story. That poor family.
  17. It seems to be working for me now. I was hoping others would be having the same experience and that we were putting this episode behind us.
  18. CC has started liking me as well. Perhaps the purchase of the blue tooth keyboard for the Kindle was a good one after all. I also noticed that gas was down 4 cents when I came home from the pool this morning. Then the next gas station was 20 cents lower. All because I filled up the car yesterday.
  19. It is definitely CC. What I don't understand is that this problem has existed since the beginning of September. There is a thread on the Help forum from back then outlining the problems. Why has it gone on so long. And, now they are telling us to be patient. Hello? It is October 19th. I think from early September to October 19th does demonstrate patience. Now the ball is in CC's court.
  20. Thanks! I thought it was time to have an avatar from the past 10 years. I found plenty of wine at the grocery store today. Fresh vegetables were in short supply, however.
  21. Good morning, everyone. I see the CC gremlins live on. I was sure that an expenditure of money would take care of that! Well, at least the bluetooth keyboard works well and it was reasonable in price. Now I need a bluetooth mouse to go along with it. I think COVID has made most of us re-evaluate life. With the exception of not being able to see family for long stretches of time, I am happy in this life. It has given me all I need and a lot of extras. The fact that I hang out on a cruise forum speaks to the extras. As @St. Louis Salsaid, I have made many new friends here on the CC Daily. That is why the CC gremlin is such an annoyance. I feel cut off from my friends and family!! Ok, baked spaghetti. I used to make this all the time. It was easy and good. Now that I have to watch the carbs, I don't make it anymore. https://www.spendwithpennies.com/baked-spaghetti-casserole/ This next one takes it to a higher level. https://www.simplyrecipes.com/recipes/baked_spaghetti/ Prayers for those in need and a toast to those who are celebrating. Oh, my gosh, that reminds me of something. Have you heard of the wine shortage? I immediately thought of my Daily friends and family. https://fox8.com/news/wine-shortage-could-result-from-supply-chain-issue/ Stock up!
  22. Good evening everyone. The CC gremlins should go up in flames tonight as I ordered and received a bluetooth keyboard for my Kindle. Much better than one finger typing. Now I have to master copy and paste as the operating system is different. I'll get it. Also, the price of gas can go down now as I filled up the car today. I did that on the way home from dropping off the laptop for repair. I also hit the Rec Center and used the weight machines and did my pool routine. Tonight I have to choose between two Zoom meetings.
  23. I have problems with both Chrome and Edge. I've cleared cookies and history numerous times. I even uninstalled Chrome and reinstalled it. No go. Sometimes it works in incognito mode and sometimes it doesn't. For a while my laptop worked and then it didn't. The problem is on CC's end. They don't seem to be too interested in fixing this. Even CC Help Jenn couldn't log in yesterday.
  24. @kazu That is terrible news about the firefighter in the St. Lawrence. I hope this can come to a successful resolution.
