Robbie, loved your letter on "training puppy", brought back so, so many memories. We had both house and kennel animals all our lives, but when our last one (our much loved cat Charley) was fatally mauled by a fox, had to make the most difficult decision that we were not strong enough, both mentally and physically for enough devotion to anymore furry family. We have been sorely tempted, but know it wouldn't be fair - find it really hard refusing rescue now. At least we have the pleasure of plenty wild life around us.

I too have made Judy in Alaska's Pie Recipe for many years, using Apples, blueberries, strawberries etc - also love it with "shop bought puff pastry" base in individual ones. Definitely one of my go to recipes when having friends around. My daughter in law loves and makes it with pulped Mango.

Sue hopefully by now you have a nice sparkling clean pan - for future problems you may want to give plain old bicarbonate of soda mixed to a paste with cheap white vinegar, mixed to a paste and left over the gunk for a few hours before rinsing. Also a brilliant cleaner for many things, particularly insides of oven/microwave glass doors. We have a septic tank, as opposed to the usual sewage and have always used soda and vinegar on a weekly basis for keeping drains clean and smelling fresh. I also do the same with dishwasher monthly.

For Oma;
I'm on a walker and no way in the world can you train animals while using a walker, with or without wheels on it. You need someone to work daily with the animal, as there is so much bending over and other things that are extremely hard to do with a walker in front of you. Call your senior center see if they can recommend some one who can train your dog at you home for a fee of course. The fee should not be too bad if you can get someone to work with seniors on the price. I used to train obedience, but no longer as the walker will not let me do what needs to be done. I guess a price we pay for getting older. Sure do not like not being able to do as I used too. Robbie's suggestions are great, but on a walker we are so restricted. Good Luck dear heart.
