Give them all your pennies.

 

That would be awful generous indeed ... but not such a good idea ... just think about the shipping costs !

 

And I could save a few bucks by giving them the keys to a couple billion in bitcoin ... it's a real option but I'm not sure it's wise one ... because it may take away some of their motivation to follow their hearts and passions and excel in life ... so I'm hesitant

 

just mail them a signed blank check. this is exactly how Warren Buffett started his empire. you want to be on the right side of this tsunami

I'd pretend it went to my spam folder. If I don't exist to them when they don't need something, then I don't exist to them when they do (but I have a rather dysfunctional relationship with my nieces' parents (ex. they said one of their daughters did not have to thank me for paying for much of her travel expenses, because I "offered" to do it, she didn't ask me to. Except I didn't offer, it was just assumed that I would), so ymmv.)

I don't think they wrote that.

 

The question of who wrote that email was posed to the twin's mother after I responded to it

 

I was told that A wrote it in the presence of E. I further inquired if A had any help from anyone other than her sister and I received a one word WhAp reply of  ... Nope

 

Quickly followed by "I might have given her a general idea for a script" ... but I do believe that those little whippersnappers wrote those words cuz they are pretty seriously on the ball and shockingly sharp ... but then again I have no idea what 13yos are or are not capable of cuz I'm not around them much at all ... sadly

In fact, the subject of payment has come up in ensuing telephonic interactions where the little pipsqueaks who rejected a credit card payment proposal from yours truly. They then requested funds by PayPal or Venmo and further asked me if I have an account with a major US bank because, if so, then I might even be able to use something called Zelle !   

 

HUH  :blink: WTF !  I'm now wondering if they might already be working part time for Goldman or Marcus or who knows who ...

 

 

I'd pretend it went to my spam folder

  

That might have been an option earlier (considering that my hotmail / outlook junk folder has gone completely BERSERK* in the last few months) but as I said I have already responded

 

So I'm still patiently waiting and interested in how folks might have actually responded to such a raffle request ...

 

 

* Since September, something dramatically changed in the Microsoft vs The Spammers behind-the-scenes war and the The Spammers are winning BIG TIME !

 

Folks may not realize this but the major email services block TRILLIONS, yes TRILLIONS, of emails from ever reaching your JUNK folder. I used to get about 20-30 JUNK msgs per day and that's totally manageable. Now I'm getting about half that PER HOUR !!! My JUNK folder has 1000s upon 1000s of unambiguously, total spam crap that keeps on repeating and repeating the same obviously spam messages that should never be presented to an end user. It's totally out of control and I refuse to deal with my JUNK folder anymore ... which is a problem because they are probably 5-10 semi-important emails within that haystack of JUNK

 

I presume other hotmail users are experiencing this ?

 

And separately, the new version of iOS's mail client is totally screwed up too ... where you need to delete a msg TWICE before it is actually deleted ... and you may read a msg but iOS doesn't consider it as read so it remains as a new email msg that still must be dealt with so you need to re-view it a 2nd time and hope that works ... it's a fricking nightmare ... have others noticed this ?

I'd buy one or two raffle tickets, and let that be the end of it. Via paypal perhaps.

Because you don't want aunt k to show you up. But I might make the purchase conditional on, for example, occasional email updates on the goings on in their lives. And they'd better fricking say thank you on their own volition.

Is there a way to keep my Cuisinart mini-prep from leaking? It's fine for chopping and making hummus and like that, but it doesn't hold liquid-y things well. I almost lost my 2-mushroom velouté! (The horror.)

New washer? I’ve replaced mine at least three times now. You should be able to order replacement parts online.

Thanks, I will investigate this option. Any idea where said washer might be located?

Sorry, I think I misunderstood. You didn’t mean that it just started leaking, but that it always has? Looking online, seems to be a design issue. People deal with it by putting less stuff in the canister so as to stay well clear of the opening of the shaft. Not a great help, I guess. I use a blender for soups.

Yeah, it's always been like this. Pour a liquid into the work bowl and it flows out the bottom. I thought someone might have come up with a DIY solution. Anyway, I ended up using my hand blender (I don't have a regular blender), which worked alright.

Yes, purchase an Oskar. The best mini prep machine ever made. You can get them on ebay since the have been discontinued. I have three - two as back-ups.

I never had one of these but isn't it the same as the usual cuisinart design where the blade fits on a relatively short tube in the middle of the bowl? if so, you can never fill in liquid higher than that. Not a blender.
