Rather a badge of honor for an "underwhelmed" thread to be paywalled, isn't it? I always thought of these threads as under-the-radar and not likely to draw the popular kids. It's almost whelming.

I nearly charred grilled cheese sandwiches while preparing tomato soup, but was able to salvage two non-burnt pieces of bread while doubling the cheese. This required more grilled sandwich making, but I’m a pro at peeling fake cheese squares.

I'm on the final day 3 of Picato: the sun damage gel. Has to be kept in the fridge like a Covid vaccine and comes in the 3 teeny tiny tubes like a Russian virus. Not much reaction which is a little disappointing. Seems all the solar damage has healed. Had previously done Efudex, which was great, but brutal.

R12 Who's your doctor? The FDA warned about that med five years ago, citing "reports of severe allergic reactions and herpes zoster (shingles) associated with the use of Picato gel (ingenol mebutate.)"
The Canadians say it may increase the risk of skin cancer.
The European Medical Agency has recommended suspending its sale pending further review, citing reports of tumor growth and malignancies roughly ten times more than those in comparator groups.
It seems it can be overwhelming.

I lost 26 lbs, but then Halloween came & I ate leftover full sized candy bars, so I started walking with my husband so I wouldn’t gain weight & he wanted to get back in shape.
I gained a couple pounds but was walking them off.
Every time we walked my husband kept going on & on about having heartburn, he wondered if he had H pylori again, should he take Gas X, etc. Then he’d go into minute detail about what foods he ate, at what time, in what amount. Then he said he couldn’t walk so far anymore & each day he wanted to walk less & less.
It was really unpleasant.
I told him 2 weeks ago to see a damn dr & he did and needs a cardiac catheterization.

My husband made an appointment to see the dr next week because he wants this done as soon as possible. I just checked & the dr he made an appointment with doesn't do cardiac catheterizations or angioplasties. The dr who was recommended is just a cardiologist who specializes in all the tests that my husband has already had done,

If you're talking about fresh cilantro (as opposed to coriander seed), it works best if you chop it raw and add it as you're serving your pot roast. It's not meant to be cooked, especially not for a long time.

R299, I don't think it will matter much no matter what you do. If you leave your car out, you'll need to clear IT, and the fallen snow, in your driveway. If your car is in the garage, you'll probably be shoveling the same amount of snow.
If your car is at the end of the driveway, won't the snow plows plow it under/almost under?

I have heard the words to “Most Wonderful Time if the Year,” and thought the lyrics about telling scary ghost stories was referring to A Christmas Carol. I just found out that it is an English tradition to tell ghost stories at Christmas and it was particularly popular during Victorian times. A Christmas Carol was just one of the ghost stories written at the time. It became popular in the US because Dickens wrote for magazines that became available in America,
The tradition was revived by the BBC in the 1970s. I just listened to a radio version of one. It was also a TV play but I couldn’t find a video of the play. It is a Marxist Christmas ghost story! Trump would *hate* it. It didn’t air on Christmas - it aired in November but it takes place at Christmas.
So here is a creepy Marxist Christmas ghost story filled with that 1970s British verbosity that came before UK was Americanized

It's not so easy cleaning the bottom of the cup because generally there's some smears of 'debris'. Debris is not a nice word but it's inevitable as not all the fruit can be liquified.

The old juicers attempted to turn fruit into drinkable liquids. And all the vitamins in the skins and pith was trapped in multiple filters in them and they required a great deal of messy cleaning.
These new generation of blenders retain the vitamins and the 'roughage' and are therefore much easier to clean.

R411, we had a cat that brought a "dead" field mouse (or something) into the house. When my Mom let him in, she didn't notice he had something in his mouth. Well, he dropped it in front of her as proud as can be. Problem was - it wasn't dead! It started running around the kitchen and Mom had to chase it out with a broom. The cat was so dumbfounded, it never moved or tried to chase it.

Reminded by the above comments, I inherited five small old somewhat historic houses, all filled with the possessions of the last four generations of my family. My mother, grandparents, great-grandparents, and even g-g-grandparents. I had quit working to take care of my mom before she died, so I've spent the past five years curating everything and beating the overgrowth into something manageable.
I've given away massive amounts of cool things to local thrift stores and have, according to my friend who told me about some guy who was donating so much, people are swarming that thrift store. I knew from what he said people were buying that it was my stuff, but I didn't tell him, because I knew he would want to come to my house and look at stuff and try to buy it before I took it to the thrift.
When I find something I really like, I live with it a while until I feel like I've enjoyed it enough, and then it gets donated. Sometimes I run out of steam after a few months, so I take a few months off and then go at it again.
Since I don't want these things and no one in my family wants them, I like the idea that things are being bought up by people who will scatter them throughout the area and some will go to dealers who will find special buyers for them. After so many years of being stored in houses that no one lived in, I want them to go to people who will enjoy them.

One of my dogs is a mighty killer of snakes, rabbits, frogs, skinks, and any other living thing she can get her jaws on, and the other is a little terrier mix who is pretty brave, but doesn't want actually to tangle with any of them. My cat kills small creatures, too, but I don't let her out much, because of the predators.

My cat brought in a mouse that was still alive. I rescued the poor critter - it was still alive. I placed it in a box with some water, but it was clearly suffering some type of shock, perhaps brought on by internal bleeding. I watched him for a few hours but he wasn't moving. I thought about bringing him to a vet but thought he was too far gone. So I euthanized him/her by placing him under the front wheel of my Wrangler and drove over him.

5 tablespoons flour, 1 cup whole milk combined and whisked over medium flame until thick like a pudding.
Whisk in 1 teaspoon vanilla extract and pinch of salt. Poured into a bowl to completely cool.
Put saran wrap right onto the pudding to prevent a skin from forming, set aside until completely cooled.
Using a mixer, cream together until fluffy one cup ( 2 sticks) unsalted butter and one cup granulated sugar.
Make sure to use unsalted butter. One time, I had only salted butter and made the frosting anyway. I regretted it. It tasted too harsh. Unsalted butter gives the frosting a subtle, mellow, smooth flavor.
By mixer, add the pudding into the creamed butter and sugar by medium- small chunks. Make sure the chunks are completely mixed into the frosting before adding another small chunk.
once the pudding is all in, mix the frosting until light and fluffy.
To. Die. For.

In 1960, MGM toyed with the idea of doing an all-male remake of The Women which would have been entitled, Gentlemen's Club. Like the female version, this would have involved an all masculine cast and the plot would have involved a man (Jeffrey Hunter) who recently discovers among his friends that his wife is having an affair with another man (Earl Holliman) and after going to Reno to file for divorce and begin a new life, he later finds himself doing what he can to rectify matters later on when he discovers that the other man is only interested in money and position and he decides to win his true love back again. Although nothing ever came of this, it would have consisted of the following ensemble: Jeffrey Hunter (Martin Heal), Earl Holliman (Christopher Allen), Tab Hunter (Simon Fowler), Lew Ayres (Count Vancott), Robert Wagner (Mitchell Aarons), James Garner (Peter Day), Jerry Mathers (Little Martin), James Stewart (Mr. Heal), Ronald Reagan (Larry), Troy Donahue (Norman Blake), and Stuart Whitman (Oliver, the bartender who spills the beans about the illicit affair).... wikipedia

I am so whelmed. I hate 2020. I was down to 2 guinea fowl. One got accidentally kicked by a deer a few days ago & disappeared after that. The other bird has been looking for him. Today the bird was calling very loudly, I thought her must be very lonely. I laid down to take a nap & I heard screaming. I went outside and a hawk came out of my arborvitae, walking on the ground. I saw a flash and the guinea fowl was running. There were feathers everywhere. He ran down an alley between houses & I lost sight of him. The hawk was in hot pursuit. It’s a BIG hawk, not the usual sharpie or Cooper’s hawk. The guinea never came back. I realize that’s what he was calling about today - he was being stalked by the Hawk and was trying to scare it away. Guinea fowl always travel together because it’s safe. If a hawk tried to attack the other bird will attack the hawk. I didnt realize the last guinea was in such incredible danger.
Now I have no guinea fowl. I had them for 8 years. I’m heartbroken.

The linen scraps I’m sewing together are different weights and it shouldn’t really matter because I’m going to add a backing.
And, as long as I’m adding a backing, I could add batting and then quilt a whip stitch around the scraps.
Done properly, it looks like I set a squirrel loose with a needle and contrasting-color thread (the stitches are uniform).
The goal is Repurposed Brooks Brothers SS2021. The result could easily descend into flea market territory.

R524, that's the same reason I sometimes watch Hoarders: Buried Alive. Whenever I think my house is getting too cluttered, I watch it. It helped me clean out some drawers and donate some old clothes I will NEVER wear again. Not because I can't fit into them but because they are hopelessly out of style.

I do the exact same, R524. I have over 100 episodes on my DVR, just to put on in the background when I need a little motivation. My favorite scenes are the pigging out: I won't lie, those fast-food feasts look delicious, even as they're being disgustingly inhaled.

Be aware that it weighs over 50 lbs. Depending on your age, you may need help getting it in the house. I felt a difference in a short amount of time working out on it. I provided a link to the one I bought. I hope it works. If not, just Google "TotalGym Walmart."
