    @flowerbug , no, I click on the emoji picture and the box drops down. I click (once) on the emoji I want. But most of the time, the first time I click on it, it will show up in the wrong place. So I have to get out of the emoji box, return to the message, find where it got inserted, click on the...

    Thanks for the recipe, @Lazy Gardener . I've got fresh cranberries in the fridge, but didn't get around to using them yet. (I usually use mine in a cran-apple crisp.

    :frowThanks @flowerbug, and I am sorry I don't add that information. My computer IS old, it's an old Dell, but I am mostly computer illiterate, so I am not really sure I know what information is needed. My phone is an android. But, these issues have ONLY shown up, on THIS site (and not other...

    I'm having problems often with the emoji's. I will be writing a message or PM, and try to insert an emoji, and it will show up in the middle of a word or sentence, but very often not where it was intended to be. Has anyone else had this issue, or is it just me? It happens both on my computer...

    Got an idea i just cant shake

    @flowerbug I had to go look up "stirrup hoe". I've never used one, or even seen one used. That seems to be exactly what I need around here as I have been trying to reclaim a garden area that has been part of a lawn for several years. I'm told that it was a prolific garden YEARS ago. There was no...

    Best shop ideas

    Thanks for the suggestions!! @CrealCritter , beautiful work as always! I can't change the ceiling height, but will be looking at different light options. Right now it has long flourescent bulbs. I'll definitely watch for more clamps. We've got lots of ratchet straps. This project has been on...

    Egg and meat production in poultry

    I'll be doing the same here in a few weeks. Ive got some meat chickens to cull along with a few that I have to constantly kick out of the nesting boxes at night. And there are two loud panicky chickens and a few that hang around all day waiting to be fed rather than free ranging. These will also...

    First Snake Tanning

    We've eaten rattlesnake multiple times and my husband has tanned several skins. When he was a kid, he lived in Texas, and used to hunt rattlesnakes and turn them in to the boot makers. It was good money for a Texas kid. Later when he was in the military, he'd catch and skin some and grill them...

    I Am A Seed Hoarder

    Sooooo, @baymule how did you do this year using up all those seeds?? I have lots that never got planted. The spring was waaaaaay too wet, and then it was too hot for a spring garden. So those seeds were kept for a fall garden but it was in the 100 degree range right up into October, then we had...

    pizza sausage and similar

    When you lived "up north" where was it? Sometimes it helps to know a region. And my husband says if it is a specific sausage in Kansas City, no one has been able to quite duplicate it. He said if it's "the one" from there, he knows just the one you are talking about. :lol: My husband and oldest...
