Thanks to "Partition Magic"!
You do have to be careful with it!
(Like, you don't have to be careful with everything!)

I live on a main N/S "drag" -
Intersects with a main E/W "drag" - scenic, historic, Route 66 - Ogden Ave.
Yes, Rossi was on his way to the gas-station, for a "re-fill"
No turn on Red signs, everywhere.
Rossi almosts gets "run" over!!
Grrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!
Thank goodness - I gave up carrying "fire-arms" 30 - 40 years ago!!
(You're hunting - fine --- I don't hunt anymore)
Grrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!

(Ha, ha, ha!!! - They missed me!!!)

"RF"

Wow! Nice link to "Dutch Oven" info!!
Good gravy buddy, them people are crazy out there, I hope there isn't a next time. Route 66, that is neat but not if they kill ya out there.

Noooo, I don't hunt, I just like to camp with a bunch of friends, chill out, kick back and just do some gum bumpin, and a lot of whittlin and wood carving around a camp fire doing some cooking and just killin time.

Ross, I have Norton Partition Magic 8.05 and I have Acronis True Image 10 and 11 with a bootable rescue disc. I really don't know what they are. I had a great friend who lived in Alaska, he sent me these programs just before he died so I can't ask him what they are. Gene was a computer whiz, he taught me a lot but not enough. 18 drives, man I thought Judy had a bunch with 8 or 9 drives.

Be careful out there Rossi we want to keep you around a loooooong time.

Ross---you need some kind of reflective clothing----Maybe Barb could do a 'craft challenge' next door--

I see an Elvis thing for you---white leather with rhinestones---maybe a sequined vest for warmer weather

Don't get me wrong -
I have no problem with hunting!
(Eat what you kill!)
It's just that - I don't like firearms, anymore!
(However, there was a time, "long-ago" - when I was considered a
"dead-shot")
Now, I'm just considered a "dead-beat", "scum-bag", "hack" - "Carp"!

"Acronis True Image"!!!
Top of the line!!
One of the best!!
Take some time and read up on it!
To those of us who "play around" with "Imaging", software -
it doesn't get, much better!!

I intend to stay around as long as I can!
Maybe, I should get a "white", cane?!?
How about a "Light-Saber" -
"I'm sorry! - that, I just cut your car in half!"
("Saber"? - actually, I prefer a "Foil"!)

Multiple drives/logical-drives is good!

(Acronis - Yeah!!!!!!)

"Reflective Clothing"?
I think you're right!
(Keep the laughter down!!)

I've lived in this place for a number of years.
In that time - at the (as we call it) - "Intersection Of Death"!
I've been "bumped", several times -
Knocked over once -
Almost run over a few times.
(Get off the "Friggin", cell-phone you ************Idiot!!)

Don't put me in the same sentence with "Elvis"!
(Don't disparage that person!!)

"Sequins" - "Rhinestones"?!?
YEAH!!!
I can see myself - 3, 4, 5 stories up on a plank -
The Sunlight, "glimmering", "glinting", off my attire!!!
(At least, the low-flying, aircraft will know I'm there!! - Safety first!!)

I think I should address this.

"Jim"
"Partition Magic" -
Haven't had any problems - (Not too, many!)
However, if you're running it and you're hit with some type of -
"Power-Outage" - "Spike", "Brown-Out", "Black-Out" ---
Bad things can happen!!!

Make sure you have as few things running as possible -
No Internet!!!, No "Windows Explorer", No "Anti-virus" - running "live" in
the back-ground, No "Anti-Malware" programs!
It's also, a good idea to shut off your "Firewall".
If "PM" is going to reboot your computer - don't interfere!
It may take some time - wait!

If you do run it - after you do, go into "Administrative Tools" -
(Control Panel)
"Computer Management" -
"Disk Management" -
When the "Logical Disk Manager" has loaded -
Towards the top - under "Computer Management" -
There will be a button called "Action" -
Click on it and hit "Refresh".
You're letting the "Operating System", know that there's been a change.

After you do that -
restart, the computer.

I've been using "PM" since 4.0 -
It's my friend!
I can do almost, anything with my "Puter" - that I want!
Just some thoughts!

rossfingal

Now, if I could just get my "Puter" to take out the garbage -
Make some "Monster Cookies" -
Make some Meatloaf -
Make some Banana Pudding
Now we're talking "Multi-Tasking"

Ross, I don't have anything against hunting either as long as they want the game for food and not just killing to be killing something or going after something to hang on their wall only. I just can't hunt any more, just call me a wimp but years ago I shot a rabbit with a 22 while he was on the run. I didn't hit the little fellow where I needed to to kill him, I shot his hind legs and the little animal was crying, I had to kill the little rabbit to keep it from suffering any more. I have never hunted again and I won't, I take that back I did go deer hunting once and I could have shot five deer at once but just couldn't do it so I scared them off and went home. I am just too soft hearted to hunt now.

"Now, I'm just considered a "dead-beat", "scum-bag", "hack" - "Carp"! "
Not to your friends here you aren't.

I think the reflector clothes is a good idea and go to a boat store or Wal-Mart and get one of the boat horns that fastens to a freon can, those things will deafen you, when one of the phone talking idiots get too close just pour the coals to the horn, they will hear you for sure. When the dogs go to baking next door in the summer time, I will go to the fence and they will run over to me barking like they are going to tear me up, I blast them with the horn and they fall all over themselves getting away.hehehe love it!!!

I will do some reading on the Acronis and see what all it does, he also sent me the Photoshop 12, now that is reallly over my head. I got your information saved and will check it out. The Partition Magic has been on Judy's PC for almost three years now, that may be what is goofing her PC up.

I've found, that over the years - I don't like "killin", stuff!
"Soft hearted"?!?
I'm just trying to have a good heart!!

(I am in construction! - create something!)

"Dogs"?!?
Most of them "steer clear" of me!
Ha, ha, ha! - the "mongrel", Rossi - might bite you!!!
(Yeah - my bite is worse than my "bark"! - I'm also, uglier!)
Also, I love dogs!!!
(Wish some of the members of the "opposite sex" - felt that way!)
(Woof-Woof! - "He's so cute"!!)

Generally, speaking - I don't think "Partition Magic" is going to affect your
computer!
"Photoshop" - that should not do anything, to your computer/s -
I have it - no problems!

"DIY" - cooking/baking - story


This evening, if I was a light bulb, I would be a 25 watt bulb - not very bright.

I put a plastic ziploc baggie on my hand to scoop some grease out of the can to rub it around in an iron skillet.

I heated the pan over a medium flame for 10 minutes or so and let the oil cook a little bit. I was trying to season the pan since it looked dry after I washed it this afternoon.

Turned off the heat and wiped a little bit of the oil out of the pan with a paper towel.

Noticed there was a spot about the size of a half dollar that looked a little dry.

Put the plastic bag over my hand again - it still had some grease on it - and proceeded to stick 3 fingers in the pan to cover that dry spot.....

Ouch! Burned the tips of all 3 fingers.

I put them under cold water out of the faucet and it wasn't helping. So I got an egg out of the fridge and separated the yolk out. I dumped the white into a shallow cup and whipped it a little bit with a fork, stuck all 3 fingers down inside and after a couple minutes the pain started going away. I kept them in there for a little over 20 minutes and the pain is gone.

I've read that this is an old wives tale, but this is the 4th time I've used egg whites on a burn and it has worked every time. I know, I know.... stay away from the stove Barb!

My stars Barb!! I hope you didn't do too much damage to your fingers. We all do dumb stuff sometimes. I once wrapped my hand around the handle of a cast iron pan that had been in the oven for a couple of hours. I stuck my hand in a bowl of ice for a long time.

I never knew about the egg white trick. no pain?? no scarring??
Thanks for the tip
(glad it wasn't your typing fingers)

Ouch, that must have burned most of the palm of your hand grabbing the handle. I did that this afternoon, but luckily the handle was only warm. After using regular pans for so many years, you get used to not having to think before you grab the handle.

I wish I knew what is in the whites that takes the burn away, but whatever it is, it sure does a good job.

Maybe I'd be better off and safer with an Easy-Bake Oven

"DIY" - cooking/baking - story


I read not long ago, if you burn your hand, stick it down in a bag of flour, I don't know if that works or not but I know it is nice and cool. I hope I can remember the egg white deal.

I reseason our cast iron skillets on the grill, works great and doesn't smell up the house. The more you season the better it is, I hate a skillet that sticks. I turn the skillets upside down to season them after I put a thin layer of lard in them.

I think I messed up our stainless steel skillet, it was getting pretty scratched and was sticking so I took it out to the shop and used my hard felt wheel to polish it up nice and shiny. I think it sticks worse now than before. I just can leave things alone.

Barb, on the craft forum where you are a mod, is there anything about oil painting?

Sadly--most stainless steel saute pans stick---more and more as they get older--

Not porous enough to season either---They are ugly but the heavy steel saute pans are still the best-
