  1. Happy Thanks Giving!! Just getting the turkey in the oven. Its a beautiful day, the children are out gathering maple leaves to make a centre peice for the table. Lots of family comming over. So many things to be thankful for. (what no pumpkins or a turkey?? ) Anyways everyone have a great day.
  2. I think there is a recipe like this in the big ball book of home perserving. they have a bunch of fermented pickle recipies.
  3. Definetly red flags http://www.cbc.ca/money/story/2010/09/24/g...1300-ounce.html http://www.cbc.ca/money/story/2010/09/24/c...s-fed-cnbc.html the first Gold futures hit another record high Friday — breaking above $1,300 US an ounce as investors piled into the precious metal as a perceived safe haven.Gold prices have gained 18 per cent so far this year as investors flee paper currencies. The December futures contract for bullion surged as high as $1,301.30 US an ounce in morning trading in New York. It had slipped back to 1,298.50 US by 11 a.m. ET. Gold got a boost after France reported better-than-expected GDP figures, strengthening the euro and tamping down the U.S. dollar. Gold is priced in U.S. dollars, so a weaker American currency makes it cheaper for those outside the U.S. to buy gold. It was the fourth day of record gold prices this week. Bullion prices, which have risen 18 per cent this year, have recorded gains for 10 straight years. That's the longest winning streak since 1920, Bloomberg reported. Investors and speculators have been flocking to gold as an alternative to paper currencies amid growing worries about the health of the global economy. "Gold has started to trade as another currency," Scotia Capital currency strategist Camilla Sutton told CBC News. "We've seen that noticeably in the last few weeks, but it's been an underlying theme all year." Silver hit a new 30-year high on Friday. It was trading at $21.40 US an ounce — its highest level since the Hunt brothers of Texas tried to corner the silver market in 1980. At that time, silver prices hit $50 US an ounce. Silver prices are up 27 per cent year-to-date, outperforming gold.

CBC News Bank of Canada governor Mark Carney said Friday any decision by the U.S. Federal Reserve to increase the American money supply would not result in the two countries' monetary policies heading in opposite directions. Interviewed on New York-based CNBC, Carney said the same changes in the economic outlook that would lead to moves by the American central bank would also prompt the Bank of Canada to change from its recent course of raising interest rates. Bank of Canada governor Mark Carney, shown in July, says the bank is ready to ease monetary policy if the economic outlook deteriorates. (Sean Kilpatrick/Canadian Press) Carney said if the economy weakens, "then we'll deal with the direct consequences." "Obviously, we'll adjust monetary policy to Canadian circumstances. There are limits to the divergence that there can be between Canada and the U.S." The Federal Reserve said Tuesday it would continue to monitor the economic outlook and "is prepared to provide additional accommodation if needed to support the economic recovery." That was widely seen as a sign the Fed is prepared to expand the use of its $2.3-trillion balance sheet to more aggressively buy U.S. treasury bonds in a move to push interest rates lower to encourage bank lending to business and consumer spending. Carney said recent signs of American economic weakness are of "some concern" to Canada, given that 85 per cent of this country's exports go to the U.S., and the extent to which both the housing and auto industries in both countries are tied to each other. Corrections and Clarifications •An earlier version of this story had the headline "Bank of Canada ready to match U.S. Fed." To clarify, Bank of Canada governor Mark Carney did not say the central bank would match U.S. monetary policy but said there were limits to how far the two countries' policies would diverge.

  4. CGA (sorry CSM for going off topic.) but do they really work? Can you really reuse them indefinitly, and how do you tell if it has a true seal?? Thanks
  5. btw, I know that this doesn't work for everyone, when i had an invasion, traps, poision, had no effect over several months. (never tried pepermint) but some kids were giving away kittens out side the local grocery store, so I took one home. it only took 4 days and there wasn't a mouse in the house. that kitty kept our home free of mice for 7 years, until he was catnapped buy a neighbors mentaly handycapped child. My kids were not happy (it was a good life experience for them) but we decided that it was best to let him keep the cat who he now keeps as a constant companion.
  6. hey Cat Good luck!! acutually pepermint will grow anywhere all they need is water. Just ask lady yarrow. she grows about 20 different types. (my favorite is chocolatemint it really does taste like chocolate.) and Annarchy moth balls have been proven to cause cancer(yikes!!) but just smelling them almost kills me, my brother uses them to keep skunks out of his shed, I personally would rather deal with skunk. please keep us posted
  7. If you are just makeing a pie, ei not canning it just use tapioca. it works great.
  8. Our local Walmart has mountians of canning jars, OK, so they get in canning stuff every year, but usualy only a fraction of an isle, this year it is amazing, and good prices too.
  9. "I am sitting here wondering what Microsoft charges for a relicense of my Word program. Its locked shut , read only" Arby, Open office is free just google it, its alot like mircosoft not to hard to figure out and you can open almost any doc from other programs with it. K_L
  10. I noticed that fall has come early this year. All of my sugar maples turned bright red around the 17 of August. On my way to work this morning I noticed a lot of leaves falling, normal here for October, not August. It has been a really nice summer here, lots of sunshine and plenty of rain to keep things nice and green. we had an amazingly mild winter, I wonder if that has something to do with the turning leaves????? Or are we headed for a very early winter???
  11. Cat has your dh been checked for sleep apnea? (spelling??) My father had it and he could never sleep unless the tv was on.
  12. He is sooo cute, Congrats to your family!
  13. I'm not quite sure, Ladyyarrow makes it for me, maybe you could pm her and ask for the recipe. I know she is really busy right now if I see her before she gets back to you I will ask and post it. Thanks K_L
  14. Thanks everyone, They had pickled peppers in them. A friend used one to store some wheat, she said it was really clean and had no smell and she used a food grade bag as well , but after a few months the wheat had taken on a very strong flavor and everything she makes tastes like pickled peppers. She was wandering what she could do so that it doesnt happen again.
