RE: Dutch Oven question

better to use household cutlery. I've used plain old table knives for an oval roaster, when I didn't have a trivet to fit. After all cutlery is made to use with food. :C

RE: Newfoundland

Puppy pit stops either side of ferry. In my time, - Newfoundland a gravel pit on your right 25-35 km north of the ferry. - Nova Scotia. At the very base of Kelly's Mountain, take a right on gravel road before bridge. There will be some place to pull over on that road. :C

RE: Newfoundland

I lived on Newfoundland for 24.5 years. The ferries are new ships since I moved away in 2008. In my day your dogs could stay with your vehicle, you couldn't. If you take the shorter route you have two chances to see more of the island. Just see different places going each way. You can buy a card for your cell phone at a convenience store. That can have prepaid options. If you use the one on the US plan likely you will get very expensive 'roaming' charges once in Canada. & given the sparsity of NL's population you may find towers far apart. Google up Telus Cell Phone and Rogers Cell Phone for comparisons of cell phone coverage. This is a heavy ice year. Lots of ice will still be floating off NL shores in June. & probably frost heaves still in the roads too. Go to http://www.icebergfinder.com/ to find where bergs are. Some suggested places: - Codroy Valley - Burgeo and islands - St. Georges Bay - Bay of Islands and Marble Mountain - Bonne Bay, especially both visitors centres for Gros Morne National Park* - Theatre Newfoundland & Labrador, especially for Cow Head, http://www.theatrenewfoundland.com/ Tempting Providence is about the area and ia world award winning play. - L'anse aux Meadows Viking Village, world heritage site. & Norsted locally created Viking village. - St. Anthony - St. John's - Cape St. Mary's Bird Sanctuary - Trinity Pageant. * As with Bay of Fundy, there are features of Gros Morne National Park which are 'one of a kind' for the planet. Go to: Newfoundland and Labrador Tourism Do all of your searches for Canada via the 'ca' domain option www.google.ca Memorize this: http://www.roads.gov.nl.ca/cameras/ It has many very useful links while you are on your trip. Have fun :B

RE: Good Sam Strikes Again

A) Way back when I joined Good Sam, I got those ads. It had nothing to do with this forum. I called them, Good Sam phone # and explained why I would not be interested in those ads. They discontinued them. B) When that thing of having a Good Sam logo posted on our forum posts if we had matching emails for both sites, I asked how I could have that left out. I was told to contact Admin. I did or moderator of the time did and you don't see that logo do you. :C

RE: We're Going To Canada!

Well of course, here in Victoria, we all know that the holiday is to celebrate Queen Victoria's birthday, so it is Victoria Day. The reason that it is known as the May 24 weekend is not because 24 is the date, which often it isn't, but because that is when most Canadians buy a flat of 24 beer for the weekend! Cannot remember hearing that before. Or if I did, I thought it 'some beer drinkers' idea. Rule of thumb for the day of the holiday is the last Monday in May before May 25, which as said, for 2014 is May 19. & I googled that up to check on 'usage'. :C

RE: New Brunswick Canada Flood 2014

Just heard one NB dealer on CBC radio. She was talking about getting NEW units in so that she can keep the business going. :C

RE: Nova Star

I used to live near Yarmouth. 11 hours to N. Sydney and the ferry to Newfoundland. Then again, when I lived on NL, on the west coast, Vesey's Seeds of PEI called me up and wanted me to attend a do they were putting on in St. John's. Couldn't I come to SJ for an hour's meet and greet and show? It was 8 hours for that drive in those days. Some people think they can 'do' the three Maritimes provinces in a week. :R

RE: 𝑁𝑜𝑣𝑎 Star

Chrome and Safari browsers do not support all the unicode html decimal equivalents. Another reason to use it with caution. thanks. You know this is making me remember when I wondered if the internet would ever be able to really make maps work. In time,...... :C

RE: 𝑁𝑜𝑣𝑎 Star

You can only use limited italics in titles using html decimal equivalents, but would easily exceed the 60 character max limit in the above example(73 characters). Oh sugar!!!!! What is happening to our language? via technology, or what good is technology if we lose our language :S

Italics in Topic Title should be ......

Hey, look, if you're putting in the name of a ship, it should be in ITALICS. That's grammar. Please see my post on the Nova Star docking in Yarmouth, N.S. today in RVing in Canada and Alaska. Why oh why oh why couldn't I italicize the ship name???? Sniff, sniff, sniff :C

RE: Trip To Newfoundland Via Labrador

Yes, I did it in 2006, The Trans Labrador Highway was not done then. You can drive the whole distance now. Yes, it is important to drive slowly. Although some road is paved now, still drive slowly. For safety and scenery. I have heard tell that Quebec is putting in more road along the North Shore of the St. Lawrence. That's when I'd like to go back. Check pics in my signature. :C

RE: In Firefox Get back, as in Restore, Folder

Firefox automatically makes backups of your bookmarks. I'm on Firefox 28.0, so I'll use that as my example. Choose the Bookmarks menu, Show All Bookmarks, Import and Backup, click on the restore tab. You should see options for previous dates, and the number of bookmarks. Pick the one you want, and you're back in business. My firefox shows 10 previous backups, going back to 2/27. Thank you. Very good idea. Now, why oh why didn't my search for help take me to that perfectly logical place. :B :B :B

In Firefox Get back, as in Restore, Folder

I was trying to get my Firefox to accept one site in two folders. I had somehow gotten two copies of the site I wanted, so I deleted. But what it did was delete and entire folder. It's the most important folder of all my bookmarks. Can someone tell me how to get it back? {{I used search Firefox Help and the term "restore bookmarks", but all it would suggest is not something lost, but copying all bookmarks into another browser. To me that process is copying, not restoring.}} :C

RE: Canadian Border

I assumed everyone knows about the license check. After all it's been there since they've had you stop at a red light, then pull up when light turns green. I've understood that green light = license checked. I've also understood that when they check your vehicle license they know when you, the Canadians owning said buggy, last visited US. ' :C

RE: Live cam on pair of nesting eagles.

Live Eagle Cam This is a live camera on a nesting pair of bald eagles. 2 of 3 eggs have hatched. We have seen them battle a raccoon! They have night vision, too. I wonder if this might be the same eagles: http://beta.wildearth.tv/cam/pittsburgh-bald-eagles That link you gave says "could not load plug ins, file not found. Please say what plug-ins. Also note, lots of nests on all continents given via Hancock Wildlife Foundation http://www.hancockwildlife.org/index.php?topic=cam-sites :C
