All Of My Recipes Are Gone...

in houston, texas, a car is burglarized about every 15 seconds or so... and yesterday after work, it was my turn. while working out at the gym, in BROAD daylight and approximately 20 yards from the front entrance of the gym at about 4:45 pm, all my recipes went walking.

they left my wallet but stole my checkbooks. they left my CD case with over 100 CD's and left a $275 pair of oakley shades as well.

however, they did steal my work laptop which contain ALL of my recipes... ALL OF THEM-AND RIGHT BEFORE A HUUUUUUUUUGE COOKOUT THIS WEEKEND!

yesterday was NOT a good day.

I've just read this, black chef, after reading Reanie's venting post. The world is all messed up, for sure. Sorry to hear about your recipes.

omg, I am sooo sorry BC. There have been alot of computer burglars around here too. I just don't keep anything in my car anymore. I can't imagine having a computer stolen with all my personal info on it. Well, the police will send your serial # to the pawn shops and hopefully it will be recovered.

A blind girl in the Atlanta area had 3 computers set up to recognize her voice and so much software to help her 'read'...they were all stolen from her house and worth about $30,000. I hope the thieves find it in their hearts to return those.

I've had my car broken into several times right before Xmas. Always for my radio and oakleys! Never recipes though!

Can we help you with any recipes?

Oh, man! I am so sorry!
I don't guess you had your files backed up on CD? I did my recipes a while back, but I need to do it with my family photos.
We get by with a little help from our friends

VERY sad indeed. At least some of your recipes are posted here - you can "recover" those. I am so sorry that happened - it's not a good feeling. Hugs coming your way.

I hated going to weddings. All the grandmas would poke me saying "You're next". They stopped that when I started doing it to them at funerals.
