Thanks lorelski, for the correct link. I had to restart my MacBook Pro, then double click on the app's icon in Finder, and now it works. I love it. I learned to type on a manual Remington and didn't realize how I missed the sounds.

Cuban's make a "Cake de Bocadito," which sounds just like the sandwich loafs that JONLIZ remembers, and like the smorgastarta. The fillings can be chicken salad, ham salad, egg salad, tuna, preserves, etc. My mother ordered one for a party years ago and I can tell all the naysayers on this thread that it was absolutely addictive. If you like the fillings, white bread and cream cheese, you will like the "cake." It's like a giant tea sandwich.

Thanks. The link to the National Trust is not working for me. It appears they just started a new version of the website, one that still needs work. I did find the recipes through google, the cached version. I love Downton Abbey.

I was a huge fan of her previous show (pre-big house) Martha Stewart Living, because she really went in depth into every topic. I learned so much from her shows: From strudel to Ukrainian eggs to antiques and on and on. I taped every show and watched it while I worked out. The live show was a huge disappointment. It was very superficial, and of course, more commercial. And I don't want to see some celebrity trying to cook or make a craft. I want to learn from an expert. I wish they would re-run the old shows. But I wouldn't count her out yet.

I have several pizza stones, but had not thought of putting one on top and one in the bottom like in #8. Thanks!

I've had great success deodorizing upholstered pieces with a product called Pureayre. One spray application removed all dog odors. I made sure to spray all sides well. It's expensive and I had to order it, but worth it. While you spray it it smells like good mint gum, but that smell goes away within 24 hours. They have a Pet solution and a home solution. The Pet one is easier to find. It is non-toxic and can even be sprayed on the dog. It was recommended to me by a professional home stager.

I have no connection with the company, and only wish it were more readily available.

Linked in is tricky in general, I found. First the font is tiny (why?), so it's hard to read. When I first logged in, the next page suggests contacts. Eight contacts are displayed, all of whom I knew, so I said yes to all. But I didn't see the scroll bar and invited 95 other people, many of whom I didn't know and some I did not want. Linkedin "checks" everybody. You have to de-select.

Now I click on "skip this step," but then page 2 asks you again, and all the potential contacts are selected again. So be advised.

Nitpick. First sentence of the last paragraph should read: "How will this affect you?"

Trackball all the way!! 1. Doesn't get dirty (clean it maybe once a month) 2. needs only a tiny amount of space on the desk 3. Much more accurate: our fingers is where we have fine motor control, not our wrists 4. The best way to play a lot of games, like any solitaire and bounceout, again because of the finer motor control 5. The hand and wrist are relaxed, because there is no need to grab it, therefore I think it's more ergonomic. 6. Make new connections with your brain cells when you switch. Try it for 1-2 weeks, then decide. For me there was no going back.

I would suggest dusting first so that any dust that falls on the floor is swept up when you vacuum.

I'm doing my room later today.
