BBT is one of the few things I miss now I don't have a television. I'll swear I've shared apartments with all of the characters at one time or another!

The one thermometer I trust is a candy/deep fry thermometer. It came with instructions on how to test and calibrate it. There is a nut that can be twisted. It read 0°C when left in ice water and 100°C when in boiling water, straight from the store. I wish I hadn't thrown away that piece of cardboard, because it doesn't say a brand name anywhere on the thermometer. It's dishwasher safe! It reads the temperature of meat faster than the instant read thermometers I have owned. Food comes out the way I expect it to for the temperature that thermometer tells me. I would buy more of them, if I just knew the brand name.
Don't know whether they are available where you are, but Brannan is a good make in the UK. They make lab thermometers, etc., as well as culinary thermometers.

I agree that most sitcoms over the years have been mindless. I did like "I Love Lucy" and "The Dick VanDyke Show".
the "Danny Thomas Show" wasn't bad either. I also enjoyed the "Bill Cosby Show", in its various incarnations. Yeh, I know, I'm showing my age.

I liked a few straight up comedy shows from that time period as well, like the Red Skelton Show, the Carol Burnett Show, to name a couple of standouts.

That's my favorite time period for TV, when the world seemed more innocent, and had family enriching standards.

Was it "The Wonder Years"?

Ow! I'm glad that it's healing well, and doesn't hurt any more. I hope the natural skin color remains. i had a burn like that on my left ring finger. It left a scar, but is barely noticeable. Besides, your natural skin tone goes better with the emerald; at least, that's my opinion.

That's great that it doesn't hurt anymore.

Burns are nasty things and I'm glad to hear you're doing well.

Finger injuries really teach you how much you rely on your digits.

I just split my nail across the finger about halfway down. (Not cooking related) but it's almost made me one handed.
