Kitchenelf this is great advice. I do the same thing and it works like a charm.

Nahhhhhhh, being sarcastic. About half the stuff I put in a pot with water and cook on top of the stove ends up "soupy." But I'm a bachelor here, cooking for one, and tend to cook pretty narrowly -- and define techniques in broad sweeps.

Water in a pot on the stove with ingredients turns the water into a broth in some sense. Adelle Davis in "Let's Eat Right To Keep Fit" stresses that food cooked in water releases essential nutrients into the water (a "soup" or "broth") and if you drain it, the nutrients are lost.

*G* is "grin" -- I think *GG* is "giggle" but it seems not to get used much. The smilies on the side panel here are nice, but "old school" and a lot of chat rooms has me using the letter acronyms between asterisks.

*BG* is big grin. In chatrooms the acronyms are used profusely versus emoticons. All bulletin boards will have the emoticons to the right but usually not as many - we feel blessed to have so many

If you do a word search with the word acronym you will see where I have posted a whole slew of them!!!!! More than you will ever need to know and a lot of the acronyms left out!!!

Thanks Daphne. That is what I was guessing it meant as that seemed to make sense, but sometimes I make these assumptions and am drastically wrong

GB - it took me ages to figure out what DH was - I definately had my own meaning and it still related to male spouse!

I removed the last post - we aren't getting anywhere as people have different views - always will - no point in dragging it out.

Yeah, thanks --

A fair amount of research went into that philogical/etymological run-down. When people disagree about what words mean, words are the conduit for clarification.

Why don't you move into my library and burn my books?

Quid pro quo would infer that you should remove ALL the posts related to this issue -- not just the ones you capriciously judge contentious.

You know about quid pro quo? It's not a mollusk out of the ocean. I'd explain it to you, but you'd probably censor that too.

"Daphne" - This forum is based on camraderie and fellowship, and sharing of ideas; not arguing for the sake of argument; not inciting other members; not putting down other members' lifestyles or thoughts. If you do not agree with the moderation here, then perhaps this is not the online community for you. The moderators do a superb job in keeping the posts in the correct forum, and also to ensure that no one oversteps their bounds. Everyone here has the utmost respect for them and their decisions.
