New Site - PLEASE READ

Hello All,
My name is Ashley and I am the one that moved the forum to its new hosting location. This was done for security reasons and try to keep the forum from going down every other day. I understand that the new forum looks very different from the old one but I promise almost everything you had before you still have it might just be in a different place.

Items that are gone due to a limitation of the new hosting/ forum update:
- Awards
- Flags

As I was going thought your posts I was able to fix a lot fo the issues you were listing. Below is kind of a running list of issues an what is fixed and what I am still working on.

Items that I have fixed from your comments:
- Smilie are now working.
- Color/Theme changes
- Signature are now showing up. (Here is how to edit them https://screencast.com/t/OJHzzhiV1)
- Ranking is now showing up.
- Private messaging is now working.

Some issues I am still working on are:
- Missing items from the Calendar
- Like button the posts is giving an error.

If anyone has any issues that they are running in to please let me know. Please only send real issues not things like I hate the colors of the site or the site looks cheap now. I am trying to get as many issues fixed for you as i can and If i have to read through stuff like that it's going to take me longer to get stuff fixed.

If anyone has any issues that they are running in to please let me know in the post below. Please give me as much detail as possible .

In fact, everything on the lake went down the hole, including the drilling well! After a while it all came spitting back up out of the well. this happened near Delcambre many years ago. The drilling company had to pay a large damage suit brought by the salt mine owners!

    What might be true for one area is not the same in others. There are many major salt mine over here but with out the trace of oil.

      Yes... I salt almost everything. I even salt pepperoni pizza .

      The worst part about it is that my 21 yr old daughter does the same thing.

        however putting salt on fruit drives me insane, because I'm expecting a sweet or sour juicy morsel of food, but end up with a bland, salty not to juicy anymore food. Watermelon is the worst for it, and half my family salts, the other half despises it.
        I must admit I have never heard of putting salt on water melon before. A couple have mentioned it in this thread. I'll have to try it.

          Whenever cooking salt is normally part of the recipe, and if it's not I normally ad a little in anyway. When eating out or eating something that has been prepared for me I'll only add salt if it's necessary (eg inadequately salted fries).

            There is enough sodium in processed foods that no one should ever require added salt. In fact some items, such as the instant dehydrated soups, there is so much added salt as to be too salty for my taste. If so, for cooking, use iodized salt or sea salt. Otherwise season with seasoning salts to taste.

            On the other hand, as a test, compare no salt added can string beans to a standard can of canned string beans. The standard can is quite tasty. The no salt variety is like eating cardboard.

              Because I'm a relatively new parent we killed added salt in our food during the cooking process. I will only make one meal, and kids up to the age of 1 or so don't have the kidneys to process salt properly. Therefore, I haven't bought salt for a few years now.

              I now use stock cubes, instead of just salt, when cooking some veg.

              However, Brittany (that bit next to France, not the singer) makes some wonderful chilli sea salt, which is absolutely fantastic on tomatoes.

                I don't put salt on everything, in fact I rarely put salt on anything but I do use it on eggs occasionally, along with pepper.

                On Clam Chowder soup and macaroni n' cheese (haven't had that forever though), I like to put a lot of black pepper.

                  I'm like the boss. I use sea salt,and herbs. I hardly use any pepper. But I do taste it before I add it,and then very little. I don't want my blood pressure to suddenly go up. My father has it,so I worry.

                  As I've gotten up in years I've begun to actually taste my food 1st, where as before I just salted it all regardless.

                  I use alotta black pepper, too.

                    Sea salt, if anything.

                      John,

                      I live near the Gulf of Mexico. I talk about whats around here. I know there are ancient salt mines in the Alps that have lost their hydrocarbons a long time ago.

                        Just a tad. A very small amount increases the taste of the melon. Some things, people over do it with salt but like with most things in life, just a little makes it enjoyable.

                          Nope. In fact I'm trying to cut down the sodium in my shopping to help in getting my blood pressure down.

                            Only some sea salt on my spuds, which isn't much anyway because I eat less these days.

                              Pru, I'm sure you talk of things that you know first, I try to do the same. Outside the Alps there are still major salt mines in the Heilbronn area of Germany, among others. Sort of like the salt around the Detroit area.

                                Jennie,

                                That is how my mother taught me to eat Watermelon when I was small. Adding salt might be a Southern thing. I once stopped at a produce stand in Shreveport, LA and found Watermelon Rind Pepper Jelly! My ex the Cajun loved it! She couldn't make me try it. She probably really did like it because she ate it all!

                                John,

                                I understand where you are coming from, the geology down here is different than most places. We have many "islands" in the marsh around here that were created by salt domes pushing the ground up. In fact my town is named after the "Sulphur Mines" that once operated just West of town. My Dad was raised in the little company village there. The pond was created when the sulphur was pumped out, collapsing the "island" here and in was a popular swimming hole called "Crystal Creek".

                                I will always remember my maternal GrandPaw taking my brother, my cousin (from the other side) and me fishing there. We foul hooked a huge White Perch. It was just sitting in the water right next to the bank. GrandPaw dipped a triple hook on a line into the water until he caught the fish on the lip. My cousin got attached and we brought it to his home and it lived in the bathtub for several weeks. I can't say where my cousin bathed during this time!
