Hey, remember the $25 I spent on postage to send that package to you? You said you were going to reimburse me for that, and it's been 37 days since you received it. Oh well, just another lesson learned the hard way. RAY Really!? We are having a discussion in public like children? Ok, so just to let...

jscarbo - thanks for the link. I've already gone that route and communicated with Apple. There are no authorized Mac repair technicians here. Of course iPods, iPads, and all that other phone stuff have representation here because there is a demand for that stuff. But not computers. I'm not going to ...

A hole in the road

Well fellas, things came to a screeching halt a few days ago for me. My beloved Mac died and I've been trying every trick in the book to revive it. The most sickening thing for me is that I hadn't done a back-up for about a week and I have some files with a lot of time invested in them sitting on th...

For sure this is not an easy decision! This IS WORSE for me than a woman in a shoe store trying to decide. :lol: .. garlic is always a winner ingredient and I can't imagine food without it. Hey, could I do some "Slim Jim" type snack sticks at the same time, for my son :idea: :?: The really small dia...

I'm still searching high and low here for curing salts. Del Norte, in Costa Rica where I live, curing salt #1 is called sal praga and is sold by bulk spice vendors in the mercado central. Also, many carnicerias use it and may sell you a small quantity or tell you where you can buy it. Thanks for th...

You boys make me feel right at home here, with all of your help. I do appreciate it all! Last night I was looking around online to see which big name stores here sell electric meat grinders/stuffers. It looks like I can get one for around $90. Casings, not a problem. See them everywhere sold. Dellie...

Any popular smoked sausage recipe is great, like cabanossi, csabai etc, This all goes well with some home made sourdough bread, home made cultured butter, some cheese and a big fresh salad. Nothing else is needed bar some good plonk or cold beer. Good Luck, Jan. I like the way you think! All of tha...

Well amazing things do happen in Uruguay! The package Ray sent arrived :!: :!: :!: UNOPENED! :shock: Maybe it's because the Uruguayans don't use but maybe 3-5 different spices and they had no interest in Customs. I really don't care. I'm so happy to have some Instacure! How ironic that Ray and I hav...

I've been following this thread, completely out of my element with all the technical talk, but still finding it very interesting.

I came across an article that I thought I'd share. I'm not sure of my reaction to it yet. :shock:Pooperoni

Hmmm, seems to me it's been twelve days now, starting to have some doubts as to the success of this mission. Maybe I shoulda sent it via Pony Express. RAY No, don't worry. IF it is going to arrive this is the time to start looking for it. When I sent a couple of things before moving down, it was ar...

This is definitely a most interesting subject for me! I'm going to be keeping an eye on this thread to see what kind of conclusions you guys come to. Now kick me for being the newbie to sausage making, but I do have a question about the yogurt used - does it need to be the plain stuff without sugar?...

If El DuckO fell off his rocking chair and bounced two feet forward and a foot to the right, then how far off his rocker is he? :roll:
