  1. Cool. I see my old home on the Nieuw Amsterdam. Aft wrap deck 8 port side.
  2. It has been way too long since this parade was held. Nice to be back.
  3. My sister got a fish tapeworm, most likely from salmon in Alaska. Even if guaranteed parasite free, they don't test for tapeworms, so they can still be present. You can easily avoid them by storing and cooking properly. https://www.canr.msu.edu/news/tips_to_help_you_avoid_tapeworms
  4. Good morning, everyone. I had a fitful night last night. It was my back being bad. I finally got up and put one of those lidocaine patches on it. That did the trick. Make a Difference Day should be huge. And it does go hand in hand with today's quote. It reminds me of what my sister told me when she was working. She tried to make every encounter with her staff leave them feeling better than they did to start. We never know how important that is. And, it doesn't take much on our part in many, many cases. Just a warm smile or hello. I have a video conference today from 11:00 to 3:00. Most of the speakers are ones I want to hear. It would be better in person, but was switched to virtual due to the Delta surge. The good part about the conference being virtual is that I can attend in my pajamas. Salmon is one of my favorites and it is so good for us. I can eat it several times a week. I have a recipe for salmon that is marinated in bourbon and orange juice. Mmmmmm. Here is a basic broiled salmon recipe with a lot of great information about salmon and cooking it in general: https://www.primaverakitchen.com/quick-easy-broiled-salmon-recipe/ Here is one that is a little more involved - more spices and herbs. There are also suggestions on easy variations so it isn't the same old, same old all the time. https://www.dinneratthezoo.com/broiled-salmon-fillets/ And here is another one with some great ideas for variations. This one also talks about doneness. For safety, it is recommended that you cook salmon to 145 degrees. Unless the salmon has been deep frozen before hand, you do want to cook it well done. You can get tape worms from salmon. https://www.cookingclassy.com/broiled-salmon/ Have a great day, everyone!
  5. Ouch! I am glad you were able to move up your appointment.
  6. I will be prepared. I get my booster on Sunday afternoon. Originally I had it scheduled for Tuesday afternoon, but I have to drive to Columbus on Wednesday and decided that probably wasn't a smart arrangement.
  7. This was the exact procedure for us in Montreal on a b2b.
  8. Good morning, everyone. I slept like a rock last night. All those tornados last night produced the right atmospheric pressure for sleeping, I guess. We had three confirmed touchdowns. Two were about 6 miles north of me and the other one was further away. Today is supposed to start out rainy and then clear up, but remain chilly with highs in the 50s. That's ok! I like sweater weather. Today's drink sounds like it is worth a try. And so does the wine. Normally I prefer white wine, but I bought a bottle of Cabernet Sauvignon to put some in the bean soup I made and then I finished off the rest of the bottle. It was really good. I'll have to get more of that! I love nuts, but almonds don't like me. I stay away from them because of the high oxalate levels and my tendency towards kidney stones. Let's clean up everyday! I try to do one household chore a day so that I'm not spending an entire day cleaning. And, yes, smart is good. Today's meal is one I generally like. I've never made corned beef hash myself. The last time I had it was on a BHB in Alaska last September! This first recipe is one that is a little chunky. You can chop ingredients smaller if you wish. https://slowcookingperfected.com/slow-cooker-corned-beef-hash/ It was very hard to find recipes for the slow cooker, so I defaulted to just corned beef hash. Most of the recipes I found called for using canned corned beef. I guess that could be ok, if you want it shredded and processed. Here's a regular corned beef recipe that looks pretty good. https://www.allrecipes.com/recipe/216981/deluxe-corned-beef-hash/ And one more: https://damndelicious.net/2015/03/16/corned-beef-hash/
  9. We had tornado warnings as well. I was sandwiched between two warnings, one north of me and one south. Both were confirmed touch downs, but neither came close to me. Thanks for asking! @smitty34877 Thank you for sharing the picture of Miss Camilla. Years from now I hope someone tells her how the Dailyites adopted her into their hearts when she was born. And, yes @ger_77, she is exactly what we all need to see when we face the end of life. Miss Camilla is the future.
  10. I think when people are deleting cookies and then CC works it is just a coincidence.
  11. 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.
  12. I loved my visit to Giverny years ago. I still make recipes from the Monet cookbook I bought .
  13. I will say you escaped! It would never occur to me to dump a friend because of the TV shows they watch.
  14. Absolutely! Sun exposure is the number one cause.
  15. Right now Chrome is working for me on my PC. Edge is not. The problem is not resolved.
  16. @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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. @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.
