So sorry LP. hope you are better soon.

I made my mini pies, but my crust was kinda flakey! I had a lemon pie explode when I tried to lift it out of the pan.

Good thing I know my Hubby will still eat it and not complain.

Oh...I forgot the leftover pie crust in the oven (I had made cinnamon crisp). They are too done. :(
Don't know if anyone will want to eat that.

We're getting used to it. It's a different feel from the sofa we had.

Power recliners are for people too lazy to operate the up and down manually. No vibrations. SO has back issues and can't comfortably use her legs to lock the seat in the upright position.

Actually, we bought two of them to replace a longer sofa and easy chair.

We just have the manual recliners...we didn't want the powered ones as we didn't want cables all over the place
