    Sorry Earthy, I missed your reply. I don't think so. It's too old now and support (updates) ends this year. If it was me, I'd make backups of my data and upgrade to Windows 10, or grab a cheap Windows 10 laptop or PC. Few tips: Windows 10 ideally needs 8GB of RAM. Get an SSD! Windows is super fast and responsive on one. Fortunately SSD drives are much more affordable now, 256GB minimum, 512GB ideal. If you go for a PC, you can have a traditional 1TB hard drive for storing of all your files and media, installing your everyday programs on your SSD with Windows. If using a PC or laptop, you could use OneDrive, Google Drive, Google Photos, Dropbox for your bulk file storage.

    Go Joe! You are doing awesome, and it will be a better year for you! Shake it, Joe! You got this!
  5. Happy Birthday @Merowig ! "Cream horn?" Have an awesome day! Old Man
  6. Gruesome. Good advice above though. Criminals could put anything in them to make a buck. I'm about to have some of those dubious, multi-vitamin supplements with my coffee, only to use them up mind.

    Raspberry Coulis

    Mmm, good suggestion! I have no idea how to make hard candy other than freezing it (!), but it sounds tasty. Re the seeds, that's an idea, it could make the process even quicker. Might have to make another batch soon!

    Raspberry Coulis

    If you say jus (pronounced 'zhew') instead of gravy, you've nailed fine dining and can compete on Masterchef!

    Easy to make, intense raspberry sauce!

    Raspberry Coulis

    Welcome to the Old Man's cabin kitchen where I'll show you a great tasting raspberry coulis, er sauce recipe, that I made yesterday that Lucy Butler herself would love to taste, because it's perfect with dark chocolate, deserts, ice cream etc. The intense raspberry aroma is lovely and the taste is refreshing, sharp but sweet. (Actually I found it online some years back). Skill level: Easy. If you can burn water, you can make this. Serving suggestion: Dark chocolate Christmas pine cone filled with chocolate mousse, topped with edible gold glitter (from M&S!) and served with raspberry coulis. Lucy would be proud! Duration: About 20 mins Ingredients 1/2 cup of white granulated sugar 3 tablespoons of water 1 bag (roughly 12 oz) of frozen raspberries (thawed) or 1lb fresh raspberries (Optional 1 teaspoon kirsch) Equipment A blender or food processor A fine mesh sieve over a slightly larger bowl Wooden spoon Medium-sized pan Okay, lets do this... Heat the water and sugar in a small saucepan on a low to medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the sugar has dissolved (takes about 5 minutes until the resulting syrup is clear, you will see bubbles, just stir them out slowly). Put the raspberries into a blender or food processor and pour on the syrup before it cools, then blend for about 5 seconds at a time, in bursts until the fruit is a puréed sauce. Strain the sauce with a fine mesh sieve over the bowl to remove the seeds then add the kirch if using. See my tips below to speed this up! Stick the sauce in your fridge for an hour and it thickens it a little, serve it chilled with your desert. The Old Man's Tips: Keep a bag of supermarket frozen raspberries in the freezer. When needed I leave them overnight in the fridge to thaw naturally for best results, but you could plonk them in warm water and leave them a few hours or defrost carefully in a microwave oven if you're in a hurry. I find the raspberry seeds quickly clog the sieve and the fairly thick sauce takes a longer time to drip through into bowl, so you can you speed up the filtering process easily by gently smoothing the sauce up the sides of the sieve using the back of a wooden spoon. The sauce runs back down and through the mesh until mostly just seeds and pulp are left. Use all the surface area of the sieve coating it, but don't force it or the seeds will get pushed through. The sauce will flow! You could use different fruit such as mango or strawberry. The sauce will keep in a fridge inside a sealed container or cup for about 5 days, but I guarantee you'll have eaten it within 1 or 2 days!

    The Crossing

    I recently got into a great new series on Amazon Prime Video called The Crossing, starring the rather awesome Steve Zahn who I loved in Treme. The Crossing had all the things I like in my TeeVee, damp green and mossy Vancouver forests, small town law enforcement and diners, and a touch of The 4400 mixed with the feel of Falling Skies plus a hint of the The X-Files. Then I found out despite good reviews, it got the axe after just one season. What the hell? Anyway, here's a trailer to see if this is your cup of Earl Grey...
