pac, the gun is looking really nice. Can't wait for pics of the finished product. BTW, "Springfield Armory" is about an hour from our house.

Poor Stirling...and poor you taxy. Unless he's a really easy when he's sick. This broken-rib-from-coughing seems to be going around this year. Hope he's not hurting really soon.

Thanks, Fi, CG.

This SA is in IL, CG. At least that's what it says on the pistol, Geneseo, IL or something. You might have the "real" SA armory in MA. The one that produced military weapons.

Pac, you are bringing a whole new meaning to guns for me - works of art. The time and love you put into them makes you a true artist...remember though, this is from someone who likes to play with her food! But seriously, that is a thing of beauty.

Speaking of playing with food, I am down to crunch time on my "Frozen" themed cake and nothing is going well. I for got to get milk so have to interrupt it all for a shopping trip.

Well, they aren't cakes... but you know I hate flour

I just finished bending and finagling four large semi-thawed snow crab clusters into my crab steaming pan. Life in the fat lane

I just ordered a digital food thermometer. It has an 8" probe, shuts itself off (I always forget) and is waterproof. The reviews are mostly 5 star. It reads quickly and has a large readout so you can see it easily.

The last digital one I had I got at BB&B for about $10. I forgot to shut it off the first time I used it and it died.

Looking forward to seeing it in use.

I will give a review. I really do try to take care of my cooking tools. But food thermometers are my nemeses. And I am forever burning myself when I go to check something in the oven. I am always afraid to pull the rack out far enough, so I reach far in and end up with a small burn.

Will do. I have a bad record for thermometers. According to the reviews, this one should stand up to anything I can do to it.

I am taking a break from my cake. It is all baked, icing made, sugar decorations made and I am just allowing the cakes to rest and settle before cutting and carving. I am hoping to do it tonight, but it looks more like it will be early in the morning. I have until 5 pm and once it is carved, it only needs to be iced and the decorations added.

So, I am doing a last check here at DC, going to play on my computer game and then go to bed.

'Night all!
