Frances, from Top Gear I see y'all say a "boot" for a trunk.  And a spanner (thanks,John Lennon) for a wrench. Do you remember that book, John wrote, called "A Spanner In The Works"?

The "hood" is the "Bonnett" We also say "dickey" for the trunk/boot.

i'm going to try your beet root cake, it sounds yummy.

Oh, good, please send the equivalent measures to those of us too lazy to utilize our rusty math skills.

Don't most kitchen scales have grams and ounces and measuring cups ml and ounces? The ones I have have both.

LaJuan Sukochi Lee:

Let's just stay away from the second defination of Sultane.

I am just worried that C.C.'s stiff DH will come beat his last nname out of me.!!!!

 Good Grief, Sukochi, What kind of weirdo do you think I married!!??  I assure you he's a perfect gentleman.  And as for the last name...If you read back you will see that i only mentioned my maiden name. My name now is considerably longer and harder to pronounce.  LOL

I decided to keep my maiden name even though it is longer and more complicated to say than my DH's name.  But I liked mine more than his so I kept it...

today I went snowshoeing with DH and our dog Koffy. He made sure the trail was packed before he came through...lol. So now I need to get going on quilting my quilt and figure out what I'm going to make for our quilting night Tuesday. It's my turn to cook.

To all of you thanks for the great laughs.  I so needed this as many others.  The perfect end to my weekend.  Right now the wind is very strong and blowing every bit of s%#^w that fell earlier.  I kinda wish it would snow more....maybe a snow day for tomorrow.  Oh yes and next Monday the 18th will be family day. A day off at school.  Maybe this will be my quilting day....all day.

Kitchen scales?  I do a lot of cooking, but I don't have a kitchen scale.

Family Day!  I like that concept.  Is it a Canadian holiday?

We received 8 inches of snow today, so I think we'll be wearing snowshoes on the dog walk in the woods tomorrow.

Had a spectacular day today feeling much better DH and I overlooked are run to hospital.  Day started 50 outside that was great warming up.  I moved furniture, cleaned, cooked, and sewed more on quilt,  then to boot I tranferred what seemed like a million precious moment figurines to my newest curio cabinet from a entertainment wall unit love it but since we got flatscreen that wouldn't fit.  It has been sitting in the middle of rooms taking up my much needed space.  Just waiting for warmer weather so we can move it to garage .  DH thinks will be able to sell it in garage sale whats your oppinion do you think theres a chance of me finding someone that could use it.  

I talked with SIL who said FIL was more alert today  The last time I went tension was high with everyone because the situation appeared worse than it already was come to find out the hospital gave FIL something for all the pain Dilantin... Dilaudin  I'm not sure what it was but it started with a D and they said they gave him a small dose for man his size  I"ll be kind and say hefty well it definitely renderred him unconcous even though he had one eye open well it had us jittery.  Now we have to wait to find out if he will be able to eat regular food  or have to get a tube for that.

Before I retired, and I live in MIchigan, the winter wonderland. We always called snow and work the nasty four letter words. I grew up with the last name of West, and boy didn't I get teased. I was the wicked witch of the West (thank you Wizard of Oz) . But I didn't get mad at the boy that called me that, I got even, which is much better. Thank you for the welcome. I love reading everyones posts. You ladies are like the friends next door, no matter where you all live.

Well, weezee, my maiden name is West, too!  We should compare family trees!

Kitchen scales?  I do a lot of cooking, but I don't have a kitchen scale.

We didn't either until DH started making no-knead bread.  You need a scale to measure the flour accurately for breadmaking.

 

I'm actually using it a lot right now for portion control on my New Year healthy eating plan.  It really helps with measuring how many ounces are in a serving.
