I learned that your oven temperature indicated on your oven display or dial isn't necessarily the temperature in your oven!

I am too lazy to go back and see what it is you call zucchini. Corrigets or something like that. When you had them last week I had to google it. I know you try but I guess you are not always aware that we have different names for some foods.

Ok
We have 3 names for zucchini. Baby marrows, courgettes or zucchini. I'll say zucchini from now on! So one down, I'll see what else as I go

I have outdoor outlets that are appropriately grounded. I just plug in an extension cord that has "3" prongs, plug in the shop vac, flip the suction to "out" and go to town. If you have properly grounded outlets, it should not be a problem. Or, plug the extension cord in an outlet in the house, plug in the vac, and away you go. I can send you a PM re: how to avoid getting electrocuted. I have an "anal" fear of the same--but using a shop vac outside will not kill you.

Thanks, CWS. I do have an outdoor outlet that I use for the weedeater and a heavy duty extension cord -- my back yard is so small I just use that for a mower -- so all I need now is the vac. Time for a shopping trip to Lowe's/Home Depot. I used to have several acres to play in; now I feel as though I'm gardening in miniature - sort of a Bonsai lawn & garden.

same thing i learned last week and every week: that i trust/believe people way too much/too little in exactly the wrong order. but then, i guess i haven't learned it after all since the lesson needs to be repeated and repeated....
