    Default I apologize to anyone who replied to me yesterday

    after I was last posting. I thought I had been on this group this
    morning and just marked all posts through yesterday as "read".
    Then I saw I was mistaken. :-(

    Look on the good side....... you've saved yourself some time to get onto
    other things ;-)

    A good friend would drive 30 miles at 2:00 am to bail you out of jail.
    A best friend, however, would be sitting in the cell next to you saying
    "Man, that was f******n Awesome!"

    Yeah. I should do more of that getting into other things--like
    moving.

    Using Seamonkey, Thunderbird, or Dialog, you can immediately kill
    the process with the task manager (or the 'kill' command in *nix),
    and you will be right back where you started when you loaded the
    program.

    These programs don't update the message statuses on the hard disk
    until you leave the group or exit the program.

    Chicken hearts come in fairly large packages fresh frozen for around
    $.79 per lb. I like to braise them in a mix of soy and oyster sauce
    with a little bit of dark sesame oil. I may also add some ginger garlic
    paste to that...

    I like his idea of using a basil recipe tho' and thai basil is sold
    fresh at Central Market.

    What is your recipe please Steve?

    I should have mentioned.......... using Xnews, I can F8 (read/clear)the
    group, but if I need to see a particular post again, all I have to do is
    Ctrl-F5 and specify the number of posts to reload.

    Just had a look and the current reload (max) number I can have is 359,000.

    If I need to see something from the last couple of days, I usually just
    specify about 500.

    I think I have it set up so they get deleted after they are marked
    read. Of course, I could google, but I only use that when I have
    NO other alternative.

    I only use it when I'm at work, or away from home.

    Going to have to look into that Google Killfile option at some time or
    other...... when I get some time!!

    I don't think I've seen them at Asian markets, just pork and lamb
    hearts (but no regular lamb - go figure). Our "goremay" market has
    always sold them, but tonight I saw them in the mainline grocer.
    Same price both places - $1.19/lb. They might not sell them in
    some markets because of lack of demand and wasted packaging/shelf
    space. But for every (cut up) chicken, there is a heart. So they
    must go somewhere.

    Oddly enough, the download-related options even when in NGs,
    involves files in general and have nothing to do with NGs.

    Oh well. I will survive.
