Knock knock knock

Hello everyone, I enjoy cooking and I'm trying to do more things from scratch so I started searching for cooking forums. I checked this place out & think it might be a nice place to come to & learn while chatting with people from all walks of life!

I'm a female machinist who makes phaco tips for eye surgery & I work really odd hours so you never know when I'll be online. I noticed this site is a little odd on my iphone so it may take a bit to get use to it while I'm at work. I work 5 PM to 5 AM and it's an hour drive each way. I work a few days & then I have a few days off.

I love getting kitchen gadgets & my hubby just ordered the Nuwave PIC stove top thing for me this past weekend. I also have that Nuwave oven & the Showtime rotisserie oven among a lot of other stuff.

I like to camp & I have a camper on some family property so I go there when I can. I have an (almost) 8 year old Cocker Spaniel girl named Smokey. We just lost her brother close to 8 weeks ago to cancer so I took a coworker's dog who just turned 1 on April 2. Her name is Penny & she's been crated most of her life so it's a job getting her use to a loving home but we are making great progress. The idiot I work with is a hoarder so I am trying to find out where he lives so I can get the dogs out of there. We are also picking up an 8 week old cocker from him this Sunday so now when I lose one of my kids there won't just be 1 dog left here alone.

Smokey was a mess when she lost her brother & it broke my heart so terribly. I never saw such a horrible sight as that before.

Okay, enough about me unless you want to know more! Feel free to ask, I'm easy going & I like to think that I play well with others!

Welcome to our playgroup ahoymatey! With so many people from all over the world here at DC you'll never be alone when you sign on. Plus there are a few of us that don't quite adhere to the traditional circadian rhythm... Enjoy and have fun - we (well, at least I) look forward to your tales of tails.

Welcome. Folks here have pets that they would give their life for. So they can understand your distress at losing a family member. I have two virtual kittens that are now on a diet. They have gotten too fat from everyone in DC feeding them. You will find their story in DC Own Coffee Klatch.

We also have campers and have a plethora of advice.

Kitchen gagets? If it was the latest and greatest, I just had to have it. Now I am trying to get rid of it all. I live alone and cook for only one. On occasion I make a pie or cake for one of my kids.

Sit back, peruse the site and enjoy. Don't forget to go to Today's Funny. It will cheer you up immensely.

I recently had cataract surgery on both eyes. Who knows. They may have used the device you make.

Stay away from the teriyaki...and the kittens....

I don't play well with others, I bite and I'm an Ogress...married to an Ogre and two cats who own the both of us. They let us out to play every once in a while.

Welcome!

Welcome!
The Princess used to be a nice person until her cats took over her life and that of the Ogre. But we love her anyway. We really feel sorry for the Ogre.
