Default O.T. Advice wanted please

Fending for myself for a week, Joan's gone to Italy.

Overcome first problem. No Tin opener. (Felt sure we had one somewhere).
Cut lid off tin of Baked Beans with a hacksaw. :-(( Only to discover
they were Pear Halves ( Fried egg on Pear Halves on Toast is not
recommended.

Some help please before I do some damage, I have washed a pair of socks
and want to dry them in the Micro Wave. Question. High Power for how
long or Low Power for how long?

Um, put them over the radiator for the night. Far safer. I tried to dry my
swimsuit in the radiator once, it didn't work and made a spark. Hmmm.

Oh dear. Just leave them hung somewhere that gets a light breeze and wear
another pair! Or as previously suggested, go stay in a hotel. Or go to the
launderette and ask the nice lady if she'll dry them for you!

assuming you have some heating put that on (what ever it is), drag a
chair/table over near it, put a towel over chair (to stop chair getting
scorched) and hang socks on towel in front of heating device (this is what
my dad does anyway and it seems to work). Best to check every now and then
and not to leave un attended or house may burn down.

I think the advice given on today's G.Q.T. is in order in this case.

Take a sprig of fresh Rosemary around 1 inch long, place it in a cup and
then fill with boiling water and let stand for 5 mins, then drink. very god
for clearing the brain.

Previously on Buffy the Vampire Slayer ^W^W^W^W uk.rec.gardening, I
heard hayley say...

Don't have any radiators 'cos we don't have Central Heating :-(


assuming you have some heating put that on (what ever it is), drag a
chair/table over near it, put a towel over chair (to stop chair getting
scorched) and hang socks on towel in front of heating device (this is what
my dad does anyway and it seems to work). Best to check every now and then
and not to leave un attended or house may burn down.


No central heating here either. In this weather, a pair of socks hung
over the towel rail will dry overnight.

Failing that, wear another pair.

That bit is true. In Venice as I type

Not true. I was waiting for reaction to the 'menu'

Some help please before I do some damage, I have washed a pair of socks
and want to dry them in the Micro Wave. Question. High Power for how
long or Low Power for how long?

Also not true, Was waiting for someone to yell out NNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOo!!

but what it has shown up, is the length people on this newsgroup will go
to help and assist.

No one called me a pratt, which is what I was fully expecting!!

I ask you, fried egg on pear halves on toast? :-(( yuk

and no we don't have central heating. We have a heated towel rail in the
bathroom, but where we have brought the kitchen into the centre of the
house, it is warm all the time as we have just had all the windows done.

Thanks for your advice folks.

Thanks for the politeness as well :-))

Mike
Off next weekend, so that bit is true toooooooooo
