Yeah, I ate uncooked hamburger (long time ago - lots of salt and pepper)
How about "Steak Tar-Tar"?
I wouldn't do it now!
(How's "Sushi", workin' fer ya?)
Sick from food once - "Scallops" - couldn't stand the sight of them or the
smell - for a long time!!
(That was the only time my parents made the "eating" machine, eat
when he didn't want to!)
Now - I LOVE Scallops!!

Is it possible to quickly put the whole Picasa file and all my pictures onto the flash drive?
You can move the files to a flash drive -
probably "Point and Click".
Make sure your "flash-drive" is capable of handling the files!
Luck!!

Small numbers of files at one time.
Be careful of trying to move whole "Folders"!

Mike the pictures will take a little while to load on the flash drive, at least mine did. I didn't have any problems saving my files to my flash drive but it did transfer slow. If you are going to reformat your hard drive and do a clean install try to get your drivers loaded to a cd. Sometimes the PC will recognize and install some of your hardware but most times not all of it, if you don't have the drivers for it you may have to buy new hardware or if you are lucky you can download the drivers online.

Give this link a try for your spell checker.

Talking about dragon meat, that is the toughest meat of all on the hog because that is what drags the ground, get it drags the... ah forget it.

Jim
Yeah, I get it - He, he, he!
However, I'd keep your day-time "gig"!

Mike
Just to add to what Jim says.
If you're going to back-up to a flash-drive -
make sure you have a good one!
Try to "copy" the files - rather than "move".
You're in Kane Co. - check out "Tiger Direct" in Naperville - good prices -
large selection, for flash-drives.
You can also load the drivers to a flash-drive - less chance of a "media", problem; than a CD.
Good luck!

"Tiger Direct" - computer "geek" heaven!!
You should see their warehouse! OMG!
One thing to consider if you're going to back-up data to a flash-drive -
use 2.
(Duplicate back-ups!)
Can't have too much "redundancy"!

Gasoline prices!?!
What the *$#@*&%$#@#!!!!
When I had to do a LOT of running for work -
1 Ton van - dual-tanks - loaded -
I would go through both full, tanks in a day - at least, twice a week!!
I couldn't afford that now!

GAS Yes lets vent about the price of gas. My stars its like a mort payment and I work from home half the time. My office and the nearest town is only 10k ( 1 kilometre = .6 mile ) away.

I tried to highlight the dates, but it just made a mess. They are April 9, 11, 13 and I will be empty on Monday. $200 bucks a week for cryin out loud!!

Holy smokes! That's a lot of money! I suggest that when a customer (s) want to drive around looking at houses, you have them meet you at your office and you ride with them in their car. Of course, there may be some people you might not trust enough to get in their car.

And don't feel bad. We have a president who is on record saying that we should be paying $8 or $9 a gallon, like they pay in Europe.

In another interview, when someone asked him about the price of gas going up, he said he would have liked to see the price go up more gradually than it has.

Nice, huh?

For sure I don't get in someones car that I don't know, especially since we are mostly rural. Anyway, I'm supposed to be driving THEM around. I try hard to avoid that even if I know them.

YA KNOW WHAT REALLY FROSTS MY AS..I mean my butt

We pay more for gas than you do. Guess which country you import the most oil from. YA thats right...its NOT Saudi Arabia...Its NOT Russia. ITs the northern half of North America!!! (see Ross)

Check my receipts for how much stupid HST we have to pay on the purchase to boot (ya the boot right up the whoha)

Don't even get me started about hydro

God I 'm going to have a stroke

I was going to mention the fact that we get a lot of our oil from you guys. I was also going to say that we have more oil in the ground in the United States than all of the Middle Eastern countries combined. If it wasn't for all of the stupid games the politicians (democrats AND republicans) play, gas wouldn't have to be even $2 a gallon.

The last I heard, in Iraq they pay the equivalent of 16 a gallon.

And speaking of gas, I made the bean soup today! It smells so good! But..... I can't eat any of it today because I have an all-day CPR and first aid class tomorrow. But I'll have some on Sunday.

Thanks again for the recipe Ross!
