You can make cakes in a slow cooker -- just about anything, really. Also, try a pork shoulder all day (with the right seasonings) and, when it's done (8-10 hours on a low setting), you can shred it with two forks and make a lovely pulled pork sandwich (adding some good BBQ sauce).

My mom and I both do an entire ham in the slow cooker now. Add a little water, a little pineapple on top, and just let the ham slow cook all day. Wonderful, moist, falls apart... yummy!

I think you and I bantered about it at the time...

This sounds like what was happening to me when you first upgraded the forum. I haven't seen it happening for quite a while now, though.
GO STEELERS!

Sneaking around the flat in the dark like a hermit and the living room door wasn't fully open like it normally is and I've basically punted the door end-on.
Ow! I felt that all the way over here in Pittsburgh. Are you doing the buddy-toe taping thing?
Our huge Smart TV has a window that pops up along the left side of the screen for any of the apps. You can't actually browse much at all. As long as you already know what you want to watch, you can search for it with the search box. Otherwise, just scrolling around to pick something else is a nightmare. And this was not a cheap TV.

So I was glad when Xfinity added their own Netflix app to their new onscreen system. We're still stuck with the TV's terrible app for Amazon Prime, though.
I don't mind their app on their own devices. (I use an Amazon Fire TV stick on the kitchen tiny TV.)

All the apps on our Smart TV are awful, though, even Netflix. I was so happy when Comcast/xfinity upgraded us to their new cool X1 service because it includes their own Netflix app thing and it's SOOOO much nicer than the Smart TV app was.

Ha! Not typical, but the way weather's been here in western Pennsylvania the past few years, anything is possible. (Sure, why not 3 degrees in January and 93 degrees in June, right?)
HAPPY NEW YEAR from the Pittsburgh area!

For those of you still awaiting the new year, 2017 is awesome so far! We have flying cars and drones that deliver bacon to your bed!

Wait till you see it all!
