    Happy Easter

    A very Happy Easter to all of you who observe this occasion.
  3. Sipping black coffee at the moment. I have a bad chest cold so am not that hungry. For dinner tonight I will be having a beef stew soup that my wife made (leftovers). The soup is very flavorful, it has barley and veggies along with chunks of prime beef.
  4. Pete_C, Very nice! I had some toast and coffee for breakfast. I ended up sort of skipping lunch today, coffee and a donut. For dinner tonight I'm making a chicken dish:)
  5. Bummer! Good to hear your OL was not seriously injured. I hope she is not suffering too badly.
  6. Sure, it will work fine. If everything is working fine I would probably leave well enough alone. Maybe do a clean install of 11.x when it comes out. If it ain't broke...
  7. Thanks I will consider that. Another option could be to compile your own kernel, but, I've never attempted compiling kernels for Ubuntu.
  8. Installing from the 10.10 iso would solve your problem if you don't like running the older kernel. The easiest solution would be to back-up all your data from your home directory and do a clean install of 10.10.

    Oh man, marty, that is terrible! Have you also lost your house? I hope that things are going okay for you!!
  12. Interesting article! Extra terrestrial life?
  13. Hi marty! I am very impressed with the relief effort that is underway in NZ, absolutely first rate, judging by your accounts! I am happy that things are going well for you.
  14. Wonderful news, marty!! I am very happy to hear that you are okay!!
  15. This will be cool if this happens March 2, 2011 iPad2?
  16. Dude....that is awesome:) I'm finishing up my coffee at the moment. I'm having a banana and some pseudo-nutritional cereal for breakfast. That is, the box looks like it should be healthy, but, I get a real sugar hit when I eat it.

    Hi Guys

    Welcome to our forum, BUGSY!

    I am hopeful that the current state of martial law in Egypt is a temporary measure put in place to restore order and a sense of normalcy. I suspect though that protests in some form will continue until free democratic elections are held and the people have a president of their choosing. Interesting times ahead.
  20. Living on a diet of ginger ale ...I need to drink 3-4 liters of the stuff today....no food. I'm going in to the hospital tomorrow for a check-up. I am fine, just being proactive:)
  21. Glad you liked it. It is a quick and easy dish. I went out for Chinese food tonight. We had boneless pork, special chow mein (veggies, prawns, noodles), and fried rice that had shrimp and eggs mixed up in it. Very good indeed. I had a coke and the kids had chocolate milk and orange juice. My wife had a glass of water.
  22. That sounds good. I am going to try it :-) Already juicy thighs with that sauce sounds great. 90 minutes seems really long. I wonder if that much time is necessary 60 minutes will do it....but....I like it to be really cooked. Try and experiment with the time and see how it goes:) I hope you like it!
  23. Dude.....I think you and I have the same nutritionist:) I'm going to make orange chicken tonight for dinner. 1 tsp garlic powder 1 tsp ginger powder 2 tsp honey 2 cups of pure orange juice (squeezed) Pre-heat oven to 350. Put 16-18 chicken thighs in a greased pan. Combine garlic, ginger, and honey with orange juice. Pour orange juice over skinned chicken thighs. Cover chicken with foil and bake at 350 for 90 minutes. Delicious.
  24. My wife is making some fried rice in our wok: rice, veggies, eggs........going to be good!
