    You could have him add buttered saltines to his bowl, that will take the bite off. I have added a pinch of sugar to tone down the spice, but have only done this in my bowl. Save the chilli in small batches to use for Chilli dogs then he can add any topping he wants.

I mean toss half add tomatos but rather not do that. what else would anyone suggest? all i could think of was cream cheese. potatos take the salt out he doesnt want to put sour cream on top which ALWAYS works for me.. so what would you add inside to fix it? I already have like 8 cups worth in a pot. surely dont want 12. there are only two of us. no solution I will just throw it away I guess. I dont do fire hot btw so its not fire hot. he just keeps getting heartburn. (btw he asked for chili).

    Judy. My DH runs a computer repair and resale business and Best Buy will often send customers to him because he is a lot cheaper than the Geek Squad. i already told him I won't give up my XP but both my Desktop and laptop are old. Have only had to send my desktop with him once to be repaired. Wish you were closer and he probably could of had you up and running again by now. Have a few other projects to work on until you can post the next clue.

I would love to afford to upload to another server my important things. this way its in cyber safe space. so sorry and will patiently await it working again. hey hows about if you cant post pics you can post.. cutting?? you can borrow my computer no trouble at all!! drag Judy total drag for you. we will be here waiting.
    you can take your computer into a 'tec' and they can retrive a lot of your files or pic's. we did that a yr or so ago. we were given an extra plug in drive with it all on it.

    Thanks for the info. I added one piece of cornbread all crumbled up (honey cornbread) and then 1/4 part of cream cheese and 6 oz of tomatos. took the heat down immensely. he said it was.. ok. po'd me enough to toss the whole pot in a plastic sack and into the trash. Got even last night I made phillo wrapped halibut filets which were stunningly delicious and I didnt make a second meal. DH is very picky. I always have something else to serve him if I think he wont like what I am making (often) so this time.. he only got fish. ha ha. He ate it and I know he was thinking what the h? but sometimes an evil streak hits. This is a man who loves to fish hates eating fish btw. bad brat bad bad bad brat.

    I am so bummed. I am supposed to be at a quilt retreat but we got a foot of snow and the snowplow hasn't gone by my house yet so I am stuck at home. I was going to try to make a break for it but heard that the mailman got stuck in front of the neighbor's house.

    No need to cater to the other half. Mine found out years ago if he did not tell me he did not like something he got it again. (He was a farm boy, I am a city girl! I tried to cook like his step-mom and did not know what I was doing. My mom cooked from cans and boxes, not from scratch.) Also if he does not give me input on what he is hungry for I pick it, since I'm making it he eats what he gets. But on the other side my DH does cook and isn't bad at it. We were in the Navy so money was always tight when the kids were little. So we ate what was fixed or settled for PBJ.

    I started saving all my important files (pictures, quilt patterns) to flash drives. If my computer dies, I just have to pull the out. I just hope they don't get corrupted. I do replace them periodically. I leave them plugged in, and just use them from there.

    Whew, I have one more week. I wanted to join in the fun, but had customer quilts and to finish up some other projects before I could start another one. Trying hard not to have those ufos piliing up again. This way I can go thru the fabric stash and find some beautiful fabric to enjoy a new table runner. My DH made meatloaf, so very good, I can sweet talk him into making some more to bring to the club car since the chili was to spicy. Did anyone bring some donuts? Also, was the wine Moscato? Love that stuff. After a physically trying weekend, and still go to work on Monday, I could use a glass or two or three. Well, back to work so I can drool over fabric choices tonight.

    Best Buy is now trying to take off pictures from the old hard drive and putting them on a new external drive. But since the drive crashed, it may not work. But I have learned a huge lesson, BACK UP EVERYTHING!!! AND DO IT OFTEN!!! I was negligent because the computer was only 3 years old, never thought it would fail. But I had somehow picked up a malware virus which did the damage. The new virus protection on this one is Webroot -- supposed to block all malware as well as other virus programs. I don't understand the joy some idiots get from crashing someone's computer, they can't see me cry or hear my screams of anguish!

    I need to get a bigger flash drive, but I do love my small one. I also put things on my Google area, but yeah, we should all back up more than we do.
    Everything important in my life, like naps, I learned from my dog.

    The delay has been good for me. I am taking a class and was thinking the second class was next week. It is Wednesday night and I have a little bit more homework than I thought. It is an Erin Underwood pattern. The seams have to be really, really exact so it is taking some time.
    It is cold and damp here so I made a big pot of Cincinnati style chili to share. It is an old family recipe and it smells so good here. I have plenty to share so enjoy.

    Well, my computer didn't crash and burn. DH bought me a new laptop and I am going from Vista to Windows 8 which means a learning curve. I can't access the old Hotmail account and my regular Outlook account didn't transfer. I have emails saved in files. Grrrr. This will eventually work itself out, but I'm running short on patience at this point.

    My other big problem is that the "geek" didn't transfer my MSworks program and all of the wps.files he did transfer can't be read. All in all, I have spent too much time cleaning things up and learning the new system --- which translates no sewing. Should I invest in the student edition of Office 2010????? It wasn't bundled on this purchase, which was a mistake.

    One step at a time, Kay. Slow down and count your blessings.....many persons would love to have a new laptop!
    I really am a creature of habit now and was very comfortable with the Vista. Oddly enough, I was the person teaching men and women how to use the microwave oven in the early 1970's and was very excited about this new appliance. Yes, we were still using carbon paper for letters typed on electric typewriters..... Ouch!

    I'll drive over to the train depot and hop aboard to meet you... I'm bringing homemade cream puffs filed with freshly whipped cream. The two toppings are hot fudge and thick butterscotch caramel.

    Glad you found us too! I sure hope your up for all the virtual food we eat here. no calories at all.

    apples! gorgeous and the link for the sunrise thank you! our sunrise is so much later up here. the mountains around are so big they hide it for a while longer. a slow peak. wait a minute.. sunrise? where is this rising again? oh well I am up and out of the house at 6 am and it certainly will be dark for me. The sky was barely turning a lighter shade of blue at 6:50 this morning. so dark it will be. and I will miss the pretty sunrise. shoot. maybe Wed.

    Well one day closer to starting. I am all happy happy about that. I need a late night snack. grapes or apples? ...grapes ok. sounds oh so good right now. wish I had froze them darn it. I am getting addicted to the frozen. a whole different experience. (we have to come up with good ways to quench our thirst without drinking more water hence the frozen grapes.. ) dialysis. oh fun. don't try it with strawberries. they take out your teeth when frozen. blueberries are good but a bit tart. great in your wine glasses ladies. no extra water keep it cool and then you could munch on them I suppose if you like when your done. Me, no wine, no glasses of fun things like WATER.. just.. grapes.

    tee hee......if you are having your first cuppa like I am here on the east coast all you see is darkness and the occasional car - will come back at 6 am California time!
    We are here to learn how to live in heaven - I'm still learning.

    I'm glad I wasn't the only one on the East Coast who didn't think "Oh, yeah, they're 3 hrs earlier than here"
    will try to get back at 9AM my time as we are overcast this morning and expecting lots of rain later today and tonight.
    working 10-5 today so won't be back on until later tonight. have to go pack something for lunch.
