What gives????

I checked the July 31 newsletter and did not have trouble loading the page. I tried on several computers (at the local library) and did not have problems. If a page does not load try refreshing the page. On a PC it is the F5 key or shift F5 key. If that does not cause the page to load, please let me know and I will look into it more.

This is a great no bake pie that Judy Alaska shared several years ago. I have also made it using other flavors of pie filling.

This is for Oma wanting tips on training her puppy. I am guessing he is young. As he grows he will likely be less likely to get under your feet as you try to move with your walker, but you certainly don't want to fall while you are waiting for him to mature. He needs to learn to sit, lie down and stay. There are great training videos on the Internet that are free and very helpful. The site youtube.com has lots of great offerings for training your puppy. and 1800petmes.com You can teach him to sit by pushing his bottom on the floor while saying" sit". When he does praise him and you can occasionally give him a small treat, but the treat is not required. You need to tell him to "Stay" and many suggest putting your palm in front of his knows as you say this. You can slowly move away from him, perhaps just scooting to the other end of a couch. You will need to repeat the sit and stay command for him to grasp what you expect of him. If he gets up immediately push him back in position and repeat sit and stay. It is the same concept with down and stay. You might also want to create a place of his own in the rooms where you spend most of your time. You can train him to go to the blanket that is his and sit and lie down. You can also put him in a cage while you are cooking, cleaning or moving around your home. He may whine, but give him a raw hide bone or squeaky toy to occupy him. I hope this helps. We are animal crazy, as we have our own little shelter. We have 7 dogs and five cats, all are rescues. I wish I lived close to you, so I could help with the training.

To Sue with the burned gunk on her pan, my aunt gave me this tip. Cover the bottom of the pan with powdered dishwasher detergent such as Cascade. Put a little water on top of that to cover the detergent. Let soak overnight. The gunk should come out the next morning. Has worked for me.

Ever feel things are going completely over the top re choices: aisles and aisles in supermarkets devoted to one product, i.e. breakfast cereals jings it is mind boggling. I rarely buy flour in supermarkets, not too sure why - could be too many choices or just the conditions they are stored in. I mostly buy on line in at least 5 x 3 lb bags at a time (delivered straight to your door helps) and usually King Arthur or occasionally a 00 Italian Flour that's on Amazon prime. Do you have a particular favourite, do you just buy whatever is cheapest, do you have a different favourite for cakes/pastries/scones etc etc? If you do? please share. I am probably an ancient old woman who these days uses mostly plain/all purpose flour and makes additions. I'd love to hear your ideas, preferences.
