  1. Today
  2. I measure level .....cuz I was in 4H for most of my childhood. Never took the "required" Home Ec cuz I had all that to the "enth degree"! Question, Sarah. Isn't "ounces" a measurement of weight and not volume? And therefore an ounce of feathers and an ounce of gold would have different volume....different sizes to contain them. MtRider
  3. I've had one freeze up on me a while back. Turned it off and back on, same issue. I just left it on the charger overnight, and when I went back to it the next morning, it acted like it had never had any issues. Yes, TheCG, I've found that to be a magic 'cure' too. Turned my laptop off X4 recently. [it's getting fouled up] ....but my problem was I only THOT I was turning it off. I'm not as used to devices as the average 3rd grader. So now I'll make sure to turn it off each night. It had a few updates when I turned it back on the first time. Bottom line with all these electronic devices: They're great until they aren't.....and.....They Cheat! {not gonna mention "Operator Error"} Pssst, Jeepers. "Waking up" means it's been in sleep mode, not OFF. {I think} I've only turned it OFF once now. Threw. An. Iguana? What kind of shock would that be? Can you even IMAGINE how nuts folks would be in a Post-Hooey world if they're that nuts now???? At least the iguana is getting medial care and hopefully a new home! Annarchy, your main course looks goof but the salad looks like lunch for a 3 yr old. Something related to an artist's palette rather than food tasting palate. [yes I had to look up how to spell each of those! hee hee ] Well, it was for a good cause and was greatly appreciated. MtRider

    Good to hear, Sarah. I transitioned from WIN7 to WIN10 3 yrs ago and didn't notice too much, as I recall. A few differences but not much....and with MS, my brain does NOT like changes. MtRider
  5. Yesterday
  6. Spent the morning with the tech support of our web site. They upgraded Apache, which broke some page displays. Hello India! Ended up doing a very dirty cheat in htaccess.
  7. All of ours have status leds. Green/Yellow/Red. Reset on yellow.

    No, not perfect, but I am not 'butt scooting' any more. Thanks for thinking of me.
  9. Thank you ladies. I see I was not clear. What the questioner wants is one ounce and down. All the cups I have seen start at 2 ounces. And let me toss this one into the mix. 3 tsp = 2 tbsp. Another toss-in. I would bet most of you do 'heaping' when you use such spoons, etc. Spoons are supposed to be 'level'. Yet another toss-in. Don't confuse American and Imperial (England) measurements. I found one *very* cheap looking Asian-ring set of four spoons, 2-1-1/2-1/4 oz. (or 12tbsp/6tbsp/3tbsp/4.5 tsp) Pass. Cheap. Sarah
  10. Sarah, I found several measuring cups and spoons on-line... Amazon, WallMart, Wayfarer, Overstock, etc. all seem to have various options available. I have a 4 cup Pyrex measure, that is marked in ounces.
  11. I might try it when I'm closer to the move. I don't want to take myself totally off the internet yet. I know me. It could happen...easily. So far Mother Nature has done a good job of resetting it. And what's that old butter commercial say, "It's not nice to fool Mother Nature." And the old John Anderson song, " If it ain't broke don't fix it. " Or the old Rolling Stones song, "You don't mess with perfection." Okay, I just made that last one up! But it fits them and it's true nonetheless. They would probably switch out the word "mess" with a different word. I guess I'd best leave the song writing to them.
  12. Oh, I suppose the salad had chopped walnuts, sweet pickled onions, 2 leaves of lettuce, one spinach leaf, Gouda cheese, & I have no clue what the red sauce was, it was sweet & I didn’t eat it. I’m a stuffed salad person... After coming home, we went to the eye doctor for my annual checkup. No, I don’t need new glasses, really? No problem, he asked if I had any other concerns. I mentioned my double/triple occasional vision. He checked my corneas.... small cataracts attached to the corneas. Eventually, I will need surgery to replace the corneas. I guess I need to get busy and finish the artwork I’m working on. Sure explains a lot. Spent the the rest of the day, preparing to install Mom’s sprinkler system tomorrow.
  13. Beautiful presentation. Glad a person who really needs it and will appreciate the scholarship won. That warms my heart. I slept most of the day away. I think the shopping trip yesterday caught up with me. Brother.
  14. Unplugging my Win 10 overnight has resolved most of my issues too, TheCG. Poor iguana...people are mean... One Lady met us at our house, & we picked up the other Lady & headed to the meeting at the Culinary college. Caught a train & had to go around and arrived a few minutes late. We are usually really early. The young Lady that received the scholarship, cried. She said she is the first person in her whole family ever to go to college. And our lunch.... salad.... green chili stuffed chicken with a cream sauce on rice, with a couple fried onions, blanched beets, a lightly blanched potato stick & carrot stick... & desert... I’ve never ever ever seen a salad like that! They didn’t give me that desert, because I’m allergic to strawberries. I got a small piece of chocolate fudged creamed cake.
  15. Routers usually have a switch on the back, if not, unplug it for about a minute & plug it back in....automatic re-set.
  16. Last week
  17. That would probably be me. I don't know how to turn my router off and restart it. I've heard people talk about it. The only time mine gets messed with is if the power goes off. It must be a "self starter" unit.

    Sarah, I hope you are doing well in the health department and that your new leg is a perfect fit!

    I still run Windows 7 too! I've heard too many "bad" things about Win10 to ever want to upgrade, but when this one dies I may not have a choice. Hopefully Win10 has been out long enough for most of the "bugs" to have been worked out in it, but it is really the LOSS of CHOICES for control that makes me not want to venture into the new OS! As to virus protection, etc, my internet comes with built in virus control so I really depend more on that than on any Windows updates.
  20. I'm pretty sure that 2T = 1/8 c (discovered by pouring from one measuring device to another) Found some pics I had saved. Hope these help.
  21. This a good question that was given to me, and I simply do not have an answer, as I always converted to teaspoons. 1 oz = 6 tsp. Is there ounce measuring cups/spoons? Any brand you can recommend? Sarah

    I am with Anarchy, I miss 3.0, and before. (1.1 !) Jeepers, it is not something to worry about, just keep the software matched to the hardware. We have XP, Win7, Win8, Win10 in house. And OS/2 Warp for one dedicated system.
  23. I used to work tech support for Cingular. LOTS of people would call in with weird little issues, and I'd ask them when the last time was that they'd turned it off. About 75% of the time, the answer was, "Now how would I do that?"
  24. I've had one freeze up on me a while back. Turned it off and back on, same issue. I just left it on the charger overnight, and when I went back to it the next morning, it acted like it had never had any issues.
  25. Glad you are safe in TX. Lots of storms in the south. Especially this time of year. Ya know, I don't think I ever turn my Kindle off either. I do get a screen that says, "Waking Up" when I open up the cover. Maybe that's the difference. When I close the cover it puts it in a different mode. Who knows. I can barely operate light switches these days. Productive. That's a good word for my day. People are getting more and more insane. Today in a town in the county north of me, a man (49 years old) got into an argument with a manager at a Perkins restaurant. He pulled an iguana out of his shirt, swung it around his head by the tail and flung it at the manager. Think about it. A man sitting in a restaurant with an iguana in his shirt. Next thing you know he is yelling and swinging it around his head. Those things are huge! Last report was Copper the iguana needs surgery to mend a broken leg and is not doing very well.

    I didn't get a notice. I happened to have seen it on a pop-up thing when I clicked on a Youtube video. Something about my cookies needed emptied and how the end of Windows 7 would no longer be supported. It was just by chance that I saw it. I don't know how I get into half the stuff I do online. Show your DH this link I just found. Big Sigh: https://www.lifewire.com/windows-7-end-of-life-4161085
