I'm gonna to see if my local store stocks that McCormick jar that has pepper and red pepper flakes mixed in with it, for my beef jerky.

You could always mix your own pepper and red pepper flakes if you can't find that premix.

How can I use the peppercorns in the McCormick grinder for my personal grinder? I asked my son to pick me up some peppercorns. And he brought home the more expensive one. I just wanted some peppercorns. My personal grinder has a nice handle on it and is so much easier to use for my old, very old hands.

SO HOW DO I GET THE DANG GRINDER OFF THE MCCORMICK JAR? Help Please!!

Here I am.

I don't know about getting the grinder off the top of a McCormick jar, it's likely you can't.

I was tickled to find Trader Joes grinder spice jars are refillable for other uses simply by unscrewing the top.

Now I'm really confused If Pirate wants pepper, let him grind his own in the McCormick grinder!

So true. Great idea. If he had his way, he would put pepper in everything. I have to remind him no pepper when he cooks something that both of us will eat. He made me scrambled eggs and was reaching for the grinder. I almost had a fit. I think he has learned though. I told him he would be the one to take care of me when I get sick and am vomiting. That thought made an impression. He saw me through the Noro Virus. Doesn't want a repeat of that.

Along with grinding his own pepper, I bet he can cut up his own food too.

Are turn signals on some cars optional these days? Or have people forgotten how to use them?

I just love it when people just stop in the middle of the road and make me assume they're turning. It's like, "Well, are you turning or did your transmission just fall out?"

Gaaaaaahhhh!!

Someone did a survey of why drivers don't bother to use their turn indicators. The majority didn't want to make the effort. Good grief! You just move a finger. How much effort is that?

That is more than I can do now. My fingers cannot stand the pressure required to push with the knife. He has to cut up my meat. My two index finger are now useless.
