When you live in locations where you do not live under heat and A/C every moment of the day, you often find yourself putting things is Tupperware (or something else hermetically sealed) as soon as you open it. Flour. Cornstarch. Sugar. One year I had cornstarch and confectioner's sugar in similar containers that I did NOT label. A couple of times I tried to thicken my stir fries with confectioner's sugar. Ironically, they were very, very popular, my friends and family having much more of a sweet tooth than I! Duh!

I found it!!!!!
Looking for this thread awhile.

I just COMPLETELY lost it with my keyboard.
It would only register on the screen every 6 or 8 keys I pushed.... so i beat the crap out of it, gave up, took a shower, made dinner, and then

here it is....

D'OH!!!!!!

wireless keyboard..... maybe the thingy that sees the keyboard to give it to the computer fell back behind the desk again.....

I owe a world of apologies to my keyboard.
oh, and to Trish who probably thought I was abducted by aliens.....

Suzi,

I am having the same issues with my keyboard. It has done it from the start. Sometimes it is fine, but other times, what I have already typed here can look more like:

m hvin thsame issus wthmy keyboard. thas done it fom the sart. Someties it i fin, but othr times, hat I have alrdy tped here canlook more lik:

It is SO frustrating because I have to go back and fix things every time before I send them. It looks like I don't know how to type, how to spell, or both!

Barbara
P.S. When James switches to his new computer, I will get his "old" one (which is newer than this one) and I will get his keyboard as well. Thank goodness!

I lost it, too; and mine is not a wireless keyboard. That one is on a shelf in the closet...........

The other day I was making pate brisee (butter crust for quiche in the FD. Did everything as I have hundreds of times before and it turned out very wateryyyyy! Yuk! What in Heaven's name went wrong? Then it occured to me, I had put in 8 OUNCES!! of ice water instead of 8 TABLESPOONS! Quarter of a pound of butter wasted, and I'm wondering about my brain cells, too. Truly a D'uh moment.
