Stray Thoughts 2.0

Thanks!

I love that the original band from the first Hawaii Five O from the '70s was put back together for the remake. Of course, I have to dance to it!

This forum should be labeled hazardous to your wallet.
Looking at all the fun stuff, I would need a bigger kitchen and a bigger wallet.

Just Wondering

My kids after watching numerous shows from England, are fascinated with the names of things that the English use that is so different from American usage. Such as Bonnet and Loo. Going to hospital really amuses them instead of using "to". They remember very well their father using so many of them.

So for our good Canadian neighbors, are there any expression from England that have crossed the pond to the soil of Canada?

It is getting a bit difficult watching these great shows from England. And even some from Canada. Every time they hear a word in the English shows, all I hear are yells and hoops of hollering of "Dad used to say that!"

Even though their father lived here for many years and eventually became an American citizen, he refused to give up his native language. And I can't say I blame him.

Well D*#!@$

Looked up at the microwave display when I put my water kettle down to boil water for tea. The display showed ":". Um, there are supposed to be number either side of that colon. Tried the Microsoft Restart Trick: unplug, count to five, plug back in. Didn't work.

Now I'm thinking I shouldn't have given the vent hood to Salvation Army after the garage sale...

I've been using my Sharp microwave without a display for years. It's really not much of a problem. The real issue is you can't easily tell how much time is left or if you pressed the wrong buttons.

I can't replace it as it fits in an 18" space because the control panel is across the top of the microwave rather than down one side.

Thanks for the good news, Andy! The numbers aren't displaying only when the microwave is resting. I actually ran a couple tests on it - I love doing the troubleshooting to try and find the problem before I have to turn something over to Himself . However, I tried the timer - it displayed the time remaining and worked. I nuked something on high - same results. Also in the defrost mode. I'm guessing the quick-cook buttons may all be non-functional at this point, since one or two of them went out when the "5" button stopped working almost a year ago. No "5"? No problem. 61 seconds works for me.

Numbers! I see numbers! Himself wandered into the kitchen to see what foods I was playing with, and to look at the microwave. He asked "did you try setting the clock?" Why, no, I didn't. He said since the number buttons (except the 5) were working, why didn't I try that? I hit the clock button, look at the clock on the stovetop and...see 5:55.

I waited until the time rolled over to 6:02 PM, tried it, and it worked! Bonus, one minute later is showed 6:03. At least the micro provided amusement - after annoyance, that is.

I was going to suggest setting the clock time. My power goes off often enough that it was actually my first thought. I see that display every time the power goes off.
