<quoted text>I start with teh Pillsbury Cranberry quick bread mix. I add extra cranberries. Because I make the mini muffins,run them through the food processor a bit first. I substitute OJ for part of the liquid. I grate fresh orange rind into the batter- that gives an intense orange flavor without adding sweetness. Nuts are optional, but if I use them, I toast them briefly in a dry frying pan before putting them in the batter. I add a touch of cinnamon. If we have any orange liqueur in teh house, I may sub some of that for the liquid but that is not teh usual way I do it.
I can't remember if I shared the spread. The grocery sometimes has a sweet cinnamon butter spread. that is very good. Other wise I mix softened butter with lingonberry jam to serve with them. You could use red currant jam if lingonberry is not available. It is the tartness which is important
That sounds awesome.

sounds good... i'll look for pillbury recipe then... i usually take stuff like this to work, so i don't know how adding a spread may work, could be too messy to have "just 'cause"...
I have used an old cream cheese tub to transport the spread.
When you grate teh orange peel,be careful not to get the white underpart. The white pith is bitter. You just want the orange surface peel

Not sure, but possibly going to a restore point.

Thanks. Tried that. Didn't work. Saved everything important to a flash drive. Guess I'm gonna reformat it. I don't mind reformatting too much except for re-doing all my settings. It's kinda time consuming. <sigh>

<quoted text>That was an incredible article. I never felt like I lost myself when I had my child (who is an adult now), I felt more like I was experiencing a different side of life. I can understand someone who doesn't want a child would feel trapped if they had a child.

Very sad.
We have friends our age (mid-30s) who had an unplanned baby earlier this year. It was fascinating sitting down with them and seeing them interact with their baby. They freaked out at first, after finding out they were pregnant, but embraced the hell out of it.

Granted money is tighter than it was before, but poverty isn't an issue.

i would not have put one OS on top of another to begin with, so there would be no question about rolling back to the previous. if i am installing windows, i always format the drive first, so i got nothing to offer on rolling back from 8 to 7.

She was a liberal broad before she left.

She's engaged to an Englishman she met in Hanoi!

Wanna talk about marriage rights? You have to get permission from the government to marry a foreigner. You have to prove when you met and even have to know his favorite color! Then you have to fill out paperwork, months later you have to fill out more paperwork, months later you have to fill out MORE paperwork... takes about 9 months and at least 2 thousand dollars, and the government can say NO, you can't get married!

He thinks it might be easier to become a citizen by finding a job and being "sponsored" by a company. He's an engineer, literally a rocket scientist. He was worried about how hard it's going to be to find a job and I'm like dude, you're a freekin rocket scientist! He used to design equipment for the English military. I was calling him 007 by the end of the night.

Overall, it was a good night, from what I can remember! I think I got into a fight with some guys at a bar over socialism. I don't have any marks and my knuckles are bruised so I must have won. The cops showed up but that's all I can remember! At least I didn't wake up in jail again!

If you love your freedom, thank a veteran! And remember, no American veteran ever gave his or her life to defend socialism! Think about THAT next time you're at the polls!

Uh, not in America. You have paperwork and crap AFTER if you're getting residency status, etc., for the foreign spouse, but just to get married, it's no different than any other marriage.

Now, if you're an American marrying a foreigner IN a foreign country, then it's a *bit* more complex, but you still don't need permission from the US government, just a piece of paper from the consulate stating officially that you are who you say you are (for the benefit of the foreign government).

Soooo it's not that an American needs permission from the American government to get married, it's the OTHER country granting permission and so it's really not applicable to who does or doesn't have a right to marry in the US.

Yeah, I know, I'm probably wrong. I only, yanno, married a foreigner, in a foreign country, so it's not like I know what I'm talking about or anything.

Well I heard it from people actually going through the process. And their situation is slightly different from yours. So *I'm* probably wrong.
