Re: WHAT DID WE HAVE FOR TEA?

Home made beefburgers for us tonight I will be experimenting with beefburgers on Monday, adding a teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda and a splash of carbonated water to the minced beef, makes them very light and 'fluffy'. One of my work colleagues brought in some spicy beef patties last week which use...

Home made beefburgers for us tonight, with loads of salad, pickles and coleslaw. Col reports problems with finding thick, creamy coleslaw, it's all reduced fat stuff. We are going to have to make our own again.
Tesco finest extra creamy :good:

Re: WHAT DID WE HAVE FOR TEA?

Low carb lasagne last night. I roasted the aubergine slices for 30 minutes to dry them out a bit before using them as 'lasagne sheets' and used ricotta, eggs and a bit of double cream for the sauce. The ragu was a mix of beef and pork with onion, courgette, carrot, celery tomatoes, beef stock and a ...

Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

Big Kev. My only knee trouble was due to rotating about my knee joint as I got out of the car. In effect the muscle had become lapped over the side of the knee bone and was stretched when I did this manoeuvre. Making sure the muscle was in its proper place and planting my foot squarely in position ...

Re: MEDICAL MATTERS

I had private medical insurance paid for by the big company I worked for over a few years but I discovered that they only paid for visits to a consultant if it led to surgery. That's a nasty bit of small print... I have an excess of £100 in any February to February year, I've had £300 worth of phys...

I wqouldn't even know how to 'compress my files'. I just tell it to copy and it does it. I'll come back and enquire if I ever have a problem....
It's a very straightforward process and, if used on text files, saves a lot of space.

Re: COMPUTERS, THE AGONY AND THE ECSTASY

If it will stay stable for a while albeit at 20Mbps Look on the bright side, that's faster than most people get when their broadband is behaving. When I had a crackling line I was down to less than 2Mbps My ADSL is steady away at 18mbps, I'm connected to the cab by the police station which is very ...

Big Kev - Did you pull it in bits before you ordered the part ?
The seller did specify to remove the screen and make a note of the part number on the back of it, I did and it was indeed the same. The photo matched but I've been caught out by a picture before :biggrin2:

I changed the sreen on my son's laptop yesterday, that's an interesting job with my big sausage fingers, it's an Asus x200ca with an 11 inch touch screen. The replacement was only £14 on Fleabay. I had a 500GB hybrid drive in the cupboard so that went in and I've upgraded it to Windows 10 (a definit...
