Geeze Louise, Evelyn....you should have gone with the prostrate problem and sold your story to The Enquirer, you'd be a millionaire by now. Of course, it may have meant you couldn't father any more children, but, hey, there are worse problems.....

It is scary to even think about having serious medical problems today. Some of the hospital staff are just there to get a pay check. But then you meet and get helped by some absolutely wonderfully caring and competent staff and that makes such a great difference. Keep a long knitting needle by your bedside and if anyone gets out of line, just give 'em a poke and they'll go away !

I wonder if anyone else with an iPad sees them???? I bet they can be seen on my desk top computer back home...2,000 miles away!

I'm on an IPad as well. Somewhere I remember seeing a button for "normal" or some such wording. It changed the way I saw the layout of the site. Gosh, I wish I had a better memory or could recreate it so I could say for sure.

I'll keep looking and get back to you when I figure it out.

Yes, Beth. Regarding the so called "prostate " discovery, I kept saying (kiddingly) "My mother never told me!!!" I made them correct my records! By the way, that was the same radiology department that missed the lung cancer on TWO chest x-rays!!! It makes one wonder how many mistakes are missed!

[b][LOOK Rolling Eyes ! I have discovered color! and Smileys! I hope I can find this place again! I feel like a kid let loose in a candy factory! LOL! It doesn't take much to make me happy! I hope this works.

Great Grandma Evelyn wrote:Thank you, "little brother" Jimmy, for sending my post to the forum and thank you, Beth, for the welcome! I have been enjoying the posts while waiting to become a member. How long has cooking.com been closed? I wonder if there is any way to retrieve some of the old recipes that were posted. I had copied and pasted many of them and printed them. I even bought many folders with the idea of sorting them out into little cookbooks...all Chinese, all beef, all chicken, all appetizers, all soups, etc. Did the members know about this forum or did this forum come after?C It would be nice to be able to let them know that cooking friends does exist.  There were many who posted wonderful recipes!  Thank you, Jimmy, for telling me about it!

You are welcome Evelyn.
It really looks like you took off, and made a great landing on your first visit of many more.
When you start feeling better, am looking forward to seeing and hearing of some of those great Camping Trip Cookout Recipe's. Also can't wait till you get the clams and crabs recipes boiling.
When you are rested and when you get stronger kid!  

I don't know if I mentioned, my computer in the kitchen with all the recipes and such, burned a chip on the motherboard. I am looking into trying some things I heard on the internet to get around some issues like that, and if they work; even to spin the hard drive so I can extract my files, it would be nice. If not...I will pick up a reconditioned one from dell with Windows 7 Operating System format cheap. I'll give it to Tina because She hates Windows 8 Operating System. It's too sensitive and irky ma jerkies the kid all over the place.  

So if I lost those bean salad recipes, I will be knocking on G G Evelyns member door asking for it.

Hi Jimmy,
    Thank goodness when my hard drive died, all of my recipes were stored in a RECIPE folder on AOL. They were never lost. I can resend any of them...including the ones that you had sent to me!!!  
I just need to figure out how to get my recipes and photos to the forum as I haven't mastered copy and paste on this iPad. It was so easy with my old Dell desktop!  But you know me...I NEVER give up trying! I will figure this out! Who said you can't teach an old dog new tricks!!! LOL! Woof, woof!

33 Thank you for the warm welcome, Cookingirl! on Sun Jun 30, 2013 12:56 pm

Great Grandma Evelyn


I remember your name, too!  Thank you for that warm hug!
Unfortunately, I missed my 50th College reunion (State University at Oneonta, NY -1959-1963) this June but this is feeling like a reunion of sorts!

Hi Evelyn, ... I did ask the kids last night because they were here for Chinese Supper, but they didn't know. hahaha #1... The do not know or have access to a Forum of any kind. And #2, they all have iPones: not iPads which are supposedly different. IDK.
I know one thing, and that is They have G-Mail accounts, and use G-mail for communicationg.
I remember I had the Droid Motorola touch screen, and I gave it to my cousin because it was too small for me to see the small screen. I remember, I had to get a G-mail account just to access the internet, or something of that nature.

I could not use a iPad or G-pad or whatever; because I need a keyboard like on the laptop to hit the keys without hitting too many at the same time. Did you get a remote keyboard with youirs??

See the youirs spelling? Even this logitech keyboard is to small. hahahahaha

35 Good morning "Little Brother" Jimmy! on Sun Jun 30, 2013 1:21 pm

Good morning, Jimmy! Initially, I was going to get a separate keyboard for this 9"or 10" iPad but this keyboard that shows up as soon as I tap the screen to write is large enough and, the best part, is that it is white with black letters so I can see it better than the old black keyboard! Right now I have enlarged it so it is even bigger than my desk top keyboard. The only thing I find is that many times an n or m is inserted putting two words together. I don't think my finger is accidentally hitting the m or n. Also, if I put a period after a.m. For example, the next letter automatically starts with a capital...see the word "For"! And if I want to write "into", very often the keyboard assumes that I am writing the word I so it comes out as "I nto"There are three levels of keyboard but I mastered them in no time! I am not going to purchase a separate keyboard!
    What are you cooking today???

Jimmy, They do sell a stylus, it is like a pen for the touch screens. They invented it for the same reason. It is easier to tap letters with the stylus instead of 2 for 1!!!! bounce  affraid

Barbara, hahahaha...It happens to me when I'm tired.
It's funny; one day I had to go to Motor Vehicle to get the car registered, and I sat in line for 20 minutes (not bad)...then it was my turn. Well Guess what? I took the wrong gosh darn insurance card with me. I used my company vehicle to drive there, and we have spare ins. cards at home in the drawer. Tina was at work, and so I figured, Yay! I will get this done so poor Tina doesnt have to do it on her Big One Day Off.
The Lady ( Naturally snippy) said ...Snort Snort Snort! Sir..your insurance card is not for this vehicle registration! .... I.....WAS..... Peeved!!   .... At my self of course!!

43 Thank you for the warm welcome all! on Mon Jul 01, 2013 1:11 pm

Hello everyone and thanks Barb for the invite. This looks like a fun place. We are finished with our move, mostly, still have some things to hang on the wall and I'm enjoying cooking in my new kitchen. I noticed that a few of you have had sick pets, our little dog has been sick as well and had emergency surgery for bladder stones -- he had 9 in his urethra and it looked like a string of pearls on the x-ray. He's doing well but has a skin infection from so many antibiotics and he is on new food too but he loves it. I planted 6 raised garden beds and they are doing really well, even though I got them in late -- we are eating zucchini and yellow squash and English cucumbers. My hubs has been really sick with anemia but is on the med since he had 2 units of blood and weekly iron infusions. He's still not great but is so much better. I'm really looking forward to spending time with you guys again.
