  1. Gallows Humour: Covid-19 Isolation Good news / bad news
  2. Pot Noodles are emergency comfort food, snack, or "I better eats somethin or i''l be hungry later" food. They come in a bewildering variety of flavours.Open lid, add boiling water, stir, wait, stir eat. Some are a bit more difficult and require opening and adding a packet of dried veg or a packet of sauce or flavouring powder. Primary food source for students at university. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pot_Noodle Note the exclamation mark with 'flavour' in caps. this warns you that there is no real BBQ Pulled pork in it.
  3. Tesco here have 28p chicken and mushroom pot noodle that's better than the more expensive ones like batchelors, and their own store branded ones, and one with phoney oriental manes. Some of them are well over a pound and do not taste nice. batchelors packets were pretty much sold out. They were on sale at 40p, usually 80p-£1. (50p at Sainsbury) Don't care for aldi's pot noodles much. Packet noodles there are better. batchelor's bacon ones and the knock-off bacon ones at Aldi and the store brand Morrisons are the ones I buy most. (and some chikken ones ;))
  4. Went to Tesco supermarket her, one of the UK's top chains. Covid-19 scares have panicked the sheeple and odd things are out of stock 'cus of panic buying. Plenty of coffee, frozen and ready meals, beans, canned goods, bread, eggs, almost all out of microwave rice (the cheaper & house brands) plenty of larger rice sacks you had to cook yourself. All out of pasta, except 1 portion of std. wholewheat spaghetti, 2 of their top of the range organic whole wheat and one of 50/50 brown/white. no shapes. Plenty of all their various sauces for the pasta they don't have. All out of the mid-range ramen noodles, some cheaper 'curry flavour' ones left. Plenty of pot noodles. Pretty well stripped of milk. longlife milk still had plenty - I would have expected them to go if people are hiding out and staying away from potential infections. Plenty of frozen stuff left...Breakfast cereals stripped of the cheaper and the more expensive versions. Most of what I'd consider essentials for long term survival were still there. Plenty of sardines. I just bought my normal weekly stuff. Checkout lady said during the week it was a mad-house, weekends pretty much back to normal and they'll have the shelves restocked in the next day or two. News says Tesco started rationing Pasta today - 5 items per family. I like dogs better than most people. They deserve their sardines. p.s.- Poppy likes the ones in Tomato sauce, never had a gas problem. she gets a full tin of three fishies every couple weeks. never buy the ones packed in brine or oil. Too much fat for her.
  5. Coast Guard Calendar? With Snow? Missed this one.
  6. We're further north here in the UK than most of y'all back home (except Alaska ) Today Sunset was 16:05, Sunrise 08:15, 10C, 94% humadidity and cloudy. No snow yet. We need a bit of Sun for longer...
  7. few years ago I used a theme generator program for firefox. Have the officer one, a CPO and an generic for other ranks. It works best with the older firefox, the latest 'quantum' versions try too hard to look like chrome. heck, even microsoft's 'edge' is going chromey. Mozilla has decided how they think it should look and taken away the APIs that they used to let the end user customise stuff easily. Still can customize it more than chrome or edge, everything seems to be brainwashed into looking like chrome. Theme addons lost a lot of the features for tab shapes and sizes, toollbar heights, dividers, addon icons, etc 😣 and themes don't work with Edge or Chrome. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-GB/firefox/user/8451302/ They still sort of work, but you do need a .css to move the tabs blow the address bar and fiddle with the layout to show the menu and window title bar at top. I'll check thru that script, don't recall it blocking any fonts. I use cloudflare's dns over https, it has some blocking for malware and parental control, i'll try my ISP's default one justincase. The other fora are OK, but they use different bb software. Everything still works tho, so it's an irritant I can live with if I can't figure it out.
  8. Looks like symbol set is missing either your end or mine. I'm using a windows 10 x64 HP laptop, firefox 71, but the nightly as well as chrome and edge have the same errors, other BB forums I use are fine. It's just greytalk. Screenshot is too big to attach with the limit here. Here it is hosted on imgur.
  9. I seem to recall this happening before, but forget the cure...using firefox 71, latest chrome, latest edge browsers, same.
  10. Famotadine is available from overseas, India, via ebay for around $5 for a hundred 20mg tablets. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/174105361543

  12. My last dog, when she got elderly, I used an American Equine glucosamine & chondroitin powder, cost me about £15 for a kilo tub (2.2lb.) and lasted forever at about a teaspoon a day mixed in her food. My vet said there is no difference in the chemical formulation between the horsey or the doggy versions, or even the human ones. I used it myself. probably should buy some for me again now... Poppy doesn't need it yet as she's only going on 7 yrs. Does make you want to chew on the lawn tho.
