    Maybe, but she doesn't appreciate your sense of humor so why keep at it?  Humor is supposed to be humorous to the subject of the joke; if it's not, it's not good humor.

    Speaking of Pingo - how did the pecan pie and hermits turn out?  Were you able to find any brown rice syrup?

    I don't think she's ever really going to make my hermits - she keeps saying she's going to make them and then never does - oh well - we enjoy them.

    Re: April 2011

    I didn't make the jokes nor would I out loud if I thought the subject was hurt by it.

    tt, I'm sure she'll make them - they sound delectable.

    It's immaterial to me if she makes them, I just don't understand why she keeps saying she going to - small peanuts.  There are lots of her recipes that sound good too, yet I never make them.

    She wouldn't call you "mean" if she wasn't hurt.  However, I know she isn't letting it destroy her nor is she curled up in the fetal position on the couch when you poke fun at her.  But, humor requires sensitivity to one's subjects; without it you're a bull in a china shop.  Things/relationships get broken.

    What do you think, Icer, are they going to knock Sharon off?

    I watched today, but I never got the vibe that she was"leaving" although, it wouldn't break my heart..her charactor embodies the type of woman I despise..

    I might be able to do a photo tutorial for you to make a rose bud...I think the true secret to nice petit fours is in the cutting

    Re: April 2011

    The recipe I had copied down for the icing, says to freeze the cake first then cut with a pizza cutter, spear and dip each petit four into the icing, taking it off with a fork.  Does that sound reasonable?  Of course, they wouldn't be layered then, no filling in the middle.  What do you think?  Am I taking on more than I can handle?

    Took a cake decorating class years ago and for a while decorated family cakes.  I forget which piping end you use to form the petals.  They would just be tiny rosebuds.  How many days ahead do you think I could make them?  Don't forget I have that awful basket to struggle with the snapping ends as I try to weave them, and also there'll be granddaughters over at some point a day or two before to make cookies. ("Sounds to me like she's talking herself out of it!")

    You win.  Gracie's crying to come in...

    ...whoops, it's crying to get me to play fetch, but her knee...no playing.  I'm stressed about her needing surgery.  We're seeing the vet Wednesday.  Sigh.

    Oh, gosh, it's 6:35?  I have a few more things I want to get done before DH gets home.  

    G'night, friends. :)

    Re: April 2011

    In my opinion of Ache and Pingo. I didn't get what was going on, but I do see now, they both poke each other, so I do think they both get something out of it.  He makes fun of her and she calls him names.  They both continue to do it, sometimes out of nowhere one of them will say something about the other.  So I don't think anything mean is intended from what I see.  If it really bothered either one of them, they would not respond.  On a brighter note, I am seeing some buds on the trees, nice!

    Re: April 2011

    I think you're right, Amber.  As Dr. Phil would say, "How's that working for you?"  and for both of them, it works - they're getting something out of it.

    8:13 I'm tucking this in here because I am only getting a small box to post in, and it has no bottom, hence no "save post" box.  What's that all about?  Obviously won't be able to post except for adding on this one already done.

    Good morning everyone.  Made meatloaf last night and we ate it on the patio, such a nice night it was.

    Was it windy where you live Winter?  I grilled chicken legs, but DD and I found it way too windy to eat on the patio.  I love eating outside in the summer.  My favorite is Sunday morning breakfast on the patio...  so quiet and all you hear are the birds.

    Re: April 2011

    tt, I feel so bad with all the problems you have been having.  Another thought, do you think rebooting your computer might help?  Might not, but when I worked at a Help Desk it was the first thing they had us have someone do.  Wish there was an easy solution as I enjoy your posts.

    Re: April 2011

    Had to add on to my previous posting this morning because the box I had to type in was miniscule and had no bottom and no Save post box.  Logged out and then back in, and now have this 6X8" square to type in!  At least the Save post box is there.  Anyone else having this problem?

    I'm not tt.  I do have the same issues with not seeing the "reply to post" etc. but only when I am on IE.  I don't have any problems when I am on Google Chrome.

    I still DO NOT have the ability to start a post which is very frustrating.

    No problems here - sorry to hear you're still in posting hell, tt.  Other than trying a different browser (they're all free to upload and easy to use) I have no suggestions.  Google Chrome works great for me for all my internet needs.

    Re: April 2011

    Well, this morning's solution is to keep signing out and logging back in each time I want to post in my teeny tiny box!  I know the suggestions are for me to get another browser, but I'll wait until "help" is here before doing that.

    Had tried to post earlier that yesterday when I was out filling the different dishes I have around with water for the birds, heard the peepers down the pond!  The warm temps evidently brought them up out of their hibernation in the mud.  I'll have to notice when I got out in a little while, if I can still hear them.  My little apple tree has buds.

    Amber is wasn't windy, we ate at about 7 or so.  I was surprised it was so nice.  So the rug I wanted to clean won't fit in the living room so now I'll be shopping for either a 6x9 or a 7X10.  Such a shame it's a lovely rug.
