Thanks, Phlebas, that cheered me up no end. Beautiful voice - is she professional?

Re: Happy New Year 2018

A bit late but HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL! Drac, your breakfast sounds scrumptious and I note the two bottles of beer on the back of the truck. Purely for marinating the steaks of course. Starlite, the card is beautiful. Lady K, looks like my grandson in Halifax will be getting the brunt of this storm, h...

Re: My Xmas Present!

I meant what OS are you and hubby using so that we can "emulate" you!

Re: My Xmas Present!

Thanks, I'll check that out. You and Hubby sound like sensible people, we may emulate you next year! (What OS are you using?)

Re: My Xmas Present!

Can you come to my house? Actually I do have my original XP and hope I'll be able to activate it. Microsoft is also funny about how many times one can do this. I think I also have my old 98 somewhere. All one can do is try! I didn't actually agitate to get this, it was just a bit of a wish, but we'v...

My Xmas Present!

Bri gave me Windows 10 Professional which will be an upgrade from the present Win 10 Home. I've been wanting this for ages as it has an emulator that Home doesn't have and I'm hoping I'll be able to play some older games. I'm a bit concerned that there may be an issue with 64 bit, but we'll see. Her...

Re: Merry Christmas to all Manorites

Merry Christmas from Brian and me too! Just finished opening our gifts to each other - much more chocolate than is good for us but what the heck, eh? Lots of snow here and just about to start shoveling paths for the dogs out back, no doubt finding lots of "goodies" buried along the way. Hope you all...

Re: This is really getting old - crah reporter message

As a bit of an aside, after reading the above I thought I'd try installing CCleaner to see if it could solve a small problem I've been having with an occasional pop-under. (Ladies with the sort of boobs that make one feel inadequate!) Anyhow, I missed unchecking the little box for installing Avast a...

Just realized I spelt it wrong - should be "tourtiere". It's basically a meat pie, made from a mixture of minced beef and pork. Here's a link to a recipe: http://allrecipes.com/recipe/20752/fren ... tourtiere/

Re: Favorite videos

Oh my, that takes me back. My French Canadian uncle who had the most beautiful baritone used to sing this every Christmas Eve at the family gathering at my grandparents. He sang it in French, of course. "Minuit Chretien". Still brings tears to my eyes. BTW, my British grandmother used to make the To...

Re: Did Everyone have a good Thanksgiving?

JKEerie, sound like you've bought a beautiful stove! Did you know that Samsung is the top rated range at the moment? I noticed that both JKEerie and Draclvr have stoves that feature steam cleaning. The 2 year old stove I just replaced (I know, sheer extravagance) had steam cleaning which I hated. I ...

Re: booyah?

I thought it was just an expression too, but if it's a chicken and veg stew I've been making it for years! You'll have to ask your friend for the receipt, mbday.
