  1. On Page 62, I posted my new way of winterizing fig tree using foam insulation borads. Today, moment of truth. I opened the insulation to find out what's going on inside. Very nice! not only the branches didn't die off like all the other winters, tthey actually starting to sprout. So I did the second phase of my experiment, turn the insulation foam boards into a vertical temporary green house , using also insulating clear Twinwall panels. Hoping for early figs. dcarch

    Dinner 2020

    If you can eat it, you can beat it? Corona! Corona! Corona! Found a Corona pulled pork recipe for dinner. Corona pulled pork with home grown Royal Corona beans, Washed down with Corona beer. Yes, forsythia is already blooming in my garden. Good days are coming! According to folk medicine: Forsythia is used for swelling of small air passages in the lung (bronchiolitis),tonsillitis, sore throat, fever, vomiting, heart disease, -------. Interesting. dcarch

    Food funnies

    We can laugh at Paris Hilton all we want. She is laughing all the way to the bank. She earns $10 Million dollars every year. In addition, she raises hundreds thousands of $$$$ for children's causes. P.H. salad dressing, P.H. frying pans, P.H. cook books ------------------- $$$$$$$$ P.H. kitchen gloves? P.H. high heels for the kitchen? People will buy anything. dcarch
  13. Yes, that's a good way it can slug back in revenge. dcarch
  14. This is possible: Boiling point of water is 212F Smoking point of fat(butter) can be from 300F to 400F. If fat is collected in one place and water in another in food, and both get cooked at the same time in high heat (oven, microwave), and if by chance the water is mixed into fat, explosion will happen. You see this all the time when you fry food. dcarch
  15. That's another common one I can't figure out. Try this with a butter knife and cut something with force until it slips. You will find that the knife edge always slip away from your fingers. It seems to me most knife accidents happen because of carelessness, like, having a conversation while cutting or watching TV. A very sharp knife can be a disaster in careless accidents . Dull knife cuts can be fixed with bandage. Sharp knife cuts need stitches. dcarch
  16. No. I am not. But at times I feel like I have two left hands. :-) dcarch

  18. Why don't they make a right-handed door microwave? dcarch
  19. Problem with regular microwaves, they can't cook with low power. Always at 100% power. They cycle full power on and off to give you low power cooking. Inverter system actually lowers the power level to give you continuous low power cooking. This can make food microwaved more evenly. dcarch
  20. Get one with "Inverter technology". dcarch
  21. The impressive thing about her is that, it appears that she actually has the skills in all those things she was doing. She has a huge international following. dcarch
