My mom "permanently loaned" me a bunch of her Corningware. She has so much you would never notice anything was missing from her stash. It was a sad sad day in the TRH household when a shallow square dish, perfect for asparagus, slipped out of the cupboard and broke. 

I'm with you all on the "vintage" Corningware.  I have my mother's pieces, but I've also managed to snare some extras at yard sales and the Salvation Army.  Ebay is a godsend for finding stuff, however, as it's the equivalent of a giant thrift store.  Some of the colors are more expensive as they appeal to specialty collectors.  I don't mind sticking to the white with blue flowers or the white with 70s color decorations (avocado and harvest gold).

UTI's. The fucking worst. The symptoms hit you like a ton of bricks and the antibiotics they give you make you feel sick. Ugh. 

<--- just back from the doctor, have a UTI

And it seems to happen at the worst possible time, like while on vacation or the day before a holiday.  I’ve only had a few, but I learned to use Telehealth...can get meds in an hour and, I’ve started daily cranberry supplements with lots of water as a preventative.

I’m a Pyrex girl myself, specifically the vintage solid colors. I was lucky enough to get a bunch (solid and patterns) from my BF’s mom when she was packing to move. But, ohhhhh, the small brown bowl broke, man.

I have had moments of wondering if people are lacking intellectual curiosity as well. But then I just realize that, while they may not have it for Topic A, for all I know they have it for Topics B through Z — and they possibly wonder if I have  no curiosity based on the fact I know nothing about a specific thing that they might know all about.

Oh, this took me back! Mom and Dad took all of the vintage dishes when they moved to India! Those were the best.

I have a Pyrex and Corning Ware mix. I was lucky enough to inherit pieces from both of my grandmothers, who each favored different patterns, so I have a weird mix (I have the yellow and brown Pyrex bowls and the blue and white floral and blue and white "farm scene" <I don't know how else to describe it> Corning Ware). I also broke one of the bowls a few years ago and found an exact duplicate on eBay from a thrift store in Nebraska that sold on the site. eBay can be a goldmine for random stuff, it never hurts to look.

This is a fact. I wanted a DVD of Wuthering Heights (Oberon/Olivier version) and Amazon wanted $700.00(!!!) for one. I got one for $15.00 in Ebay. Granted it's in Korean but it's easy enough to change it to English with the push of a button on the remote.

My dad eats his cereal and basically anything that needs a bowl out of this bowl. It didn't' even occur to me that it was a mixing bowl until my mom referred to it as such a few years ago. To keep it topical, my peeve is that he fills this bowl up with cereal, or chips. It holds like half a box of cereal. He has diabetes and is morbidly obese. I wish I could get him to see that this is not a cereal bowl.

It's on eBay Etsy for $9.95. Not sure if I can post the link but I searched Google for "small brown pyrex bowl 1980s" and it came right up. PM me if you can't find it (want want to find it).

Mom has that one in blue. We call it the "macaroni bowl" because my sisters used it to mix up Kraft macaroni and cheese after boiling the noodles. We also used it to cover a mouse our cat had killed and hid in the pile of jeans ready for the wash. When I picked up the pile, the dead mouse fell out. The cat came running for her kill. We didn't want her playing with it, but we were all too scared to pick up the mouse. We finally got a neighbor boy to pick it up and throw it outside. Corningware was so versatile for 1980s latchkey kids!

Mom also had the white dinnerware with green flowers. I think my youngest sister took those when Mom renovated the kitchen.

I had to deal with this sort of thing recently and know how exasperating it is. In my case it didn't get resolved until after I started pointing out specifically and repeatedly where they were at fault (even though my understandable mistake had triggered the whole mess).
Let us know how it goes!

As you get older, everyday is something of a challenge and it’s enough to put one over the top.  Things are getting so complicated.  Nobody does anything right.  You buy a car and something goes wrong.  You buy an appliance and something goes wrong.  You get a package and something is broken.  You’re waiting for a check from the government and it takes forever.  When your payment for something is late no fault of yours, so they charge you a late payment.  And so it goes.  You’re never the winner.  I give up.

I use my blue and white everyday while three sets of gorgeous China sits in the China cabinet.  My girls have their own and don’t want mine.  If and when I have company which is rare lately, I’ll put it out.  My favorite is the Franciscan pink rose pattern made in England.  Heavy, but pretty.  I don’t entertain much anymore .. too much trouble as you get older.

You’re not wrong, @Hangin Out, but those of us who have a lifetime’s worth of “Can I speak to your supervisor?” phone calls experience cannot give up.  
Just last week I got my secondary health insurance company to send me an email admitting they were sorry for mistakenly not paying the remaining $28.29 of my bill, which I then “printed” as a PDF and sent to my health care provider’s billing office, who emailed that they had noted it in my file.  
A couple of months ago I got Amazon to reimburse me for $300 that a scam artist had tricked me into spending for an old friend they pretended to be (Amazon has a policy against putting through orders like that particular one *because* they are usually part of a scam, so, after numerous calls, I convinced them it was their fault).

But maybe those who don’t fight back spend that time living a better life.

Now, when it’s a fairly big problem, I write or e mail directly to the CEO of the Company.  I don’t give a shit.  Once I wrote to the CEO of Chevrolet for something.  It was taken care of ASAP.  I’ve learned to be aggressive. Lol.  The Salesmen are crooks.  They play nice until you sign .. then don’t want to know you anymore.

Oh God.  Hate to say but while cleaning out my Fathers house after he died, I threw those bowls of all colors out.  I was overwhelmed and out of my mind at the time of selling his house.  I have my own bowls and the ones I like best are from Martha Stewart of hard plastic each in a different color.  There’s about 5 of them different sizes and very strong in one set.  At Walmart.

That’s the best way to get a response.  I’ve never had to do it but years ago I worked for the Vice President of Claims at a health insurer and every so often the Company President’s Secretary would show up with a complaint letter from a policyholder who was dissatisfied with how a claim was handled.  That had the attention of the President, my boss, and the Claims Manager until it was resolved.  The Company President’s Secretary kept a log of these letters and kept people accountable.  On one occasion my boss told me “we screwed up”.

Once upon a time, I got fed up and just wanted to unload on someone who was not part of the regional office responsible for landscaping my yard.  I was sick of talking to them.  So I looked for an online customer service number that was corporate rather than local.  I kid you not, the CEO's secretary answered whatever number I found and was going to put me through.  I was so startled that I didn't do it because I didn't really intend to take the nuclear option when dialing that phone. 

Maybe I should have,  But I guess I worry too much about the consequences landing on the wrong person because I work for a corporation and see how these things go down and my landscaper had already been fired.  And they were trying to fix things but their ability to screw up one thing while fixing two others was remarkable.  And I also had a premonition of that call leading to having to deal with them more than that one time and I didn't want to.  I was burned out. My four day project went on (and off because I had to take breaks from it for my sanity) for a year.

And all of you probably shop at this place.  I rarely do any more, but when I do I inevitably get triggered by someone telling me how great their landscaping service is.  So if you ever see someone wandering through the plants, muttering about mulch island*, just wave hello to me as you back away from the crazy lady.

*Mulch island is what I dubbed the square of land in the middle of my yard where they realized they were one piece of sod and decided to mulch it instead.  It wasn't the worse thing they did.  But it was the thing that broke me.   It was also very effective leverage to get stuff fixed.  All I needed to do was send a picture with a rectangle of mulch surrounded by grass with "WTF?"

I was *Really* peeved by the *Very* noisy birds fornicating on the ledge outside my bedroom window starting at 5:30a.m. and getting louder for hours —the ledge having become available when my son-in-law graciously installed an air conditioner recently.  
But apparently the birds were more peeved at my banging on the air conditioner a few times, as they left. 
(It’s been cool, so the air conditioner has been silent, but the heat returns today.)

 

ETA:   
Crap. One of the birds was just hovering and spying in my window, and when I banged again* the other 2 flew up and away with him/her.  So it’s a thruple?

————

*Don’t worry. I’m only banging lightly. The air conditioner isn’t going to fall out of the window. 
And, yes, it’s a second story window, so making the ledge less bird friendly would be difficult, and my son-in-law can’t do heights.

I think my parents still have a gigantic one they use for salads at family dinners!  This goes back to the 80s when my mom used it at family/friend barbecues (her recipe would include fruits AND greens, including avocado.  The dressing was a mix of lemon juice and honey, topped with (ewwww) Kraft’s Creamy Cucumber dressing.  It’s since been replaced with plain ol’ EVOO and balsamic).

That sounded great until you mentioned Creamy Cucumber dressing.  I've never even heard of it, but it sounds awful.   I do remember Green Goddess dressing.  Remember there used to be a Campbell's Cream of Celery soup.  Yech.  Feel free to chime in with any other unappetizing green foods.

I just went to look at my Corningware I received for wedding gifts. It's the green/yellow/orange/brown color scheme and it has artichokes, mushrooms, onions and tomatoes on it. All my other Corningware is new and has no pattern at all. Plus with the newer models the lids slide around and are a frigging owie my toe hazard.

HVR Creamy Cucumber dressing is really good, but it is kind of runny.   I prefer a thicker dressing, not something that is going to run off of a tossed salad and immediately settle at the bottom of the bowl.

Peeve: Trying to buy something that is no longer available.   I didn't know I wanted it until after it was discontinued.  Or, I didn't know it existed until it was no longer available.

Another Peeve:  An item that was once awesome, but for whatever reason, is no longer as good as it once was.

I make that every once in a while.  I mostly make a variety of vinaigrettes.  The only dressing I don't make from scratch is ranch; for that I use the Hidden Valley original ranch seasoning mixed into a mayo, sour cream, and milk combination, with some fresh dill added.

Some restaurants serve a nice type of lemony mustardy vinaigrette.  I’ve never been able to replicate it to my satisfaction. But just using a light application of EVOO and balsamic with some salt and pepper is good.

If you don’t want white dressing, there’s always avocado or hummus.  What about a white bean dip?   Or vegan mayo?  Different tasting notes but it will give you a creamy texture.  That said, I don’t really buy prepared sauces, save for tamari/soy saufe/faux soy sauce and ketchup.  Hummus if you count that, but I’m just too lazy to make my own.  Haha.  I make red pasta sauce from cans or jars of puréed tomatoes.

It's a twofer: peeve plus cooking.

I've lived in this house for 21 years now and every year a blackberry tree next door rains down blackberries mulberries on the walk next to the house, which is also where all the gardening equipment is, so I'm out there every day. I have to hose off my shoes before I come in and hose down the walk as best I can. There are a lot of flies and toward the end of the season the smell of fermenting fruit is quite powerful.

This year for the first time, since several branches are low enough to touch my head, I decided to gather some and maybe try a crisp or crumble. I've always felt a little guilty at letting all that fruit go to waste. So I culled a couple of cups and brought them in to rinse off. Bugs! Bugs everywhere! Like potato bugs but not. Gah!

I cleaned everything off and stuck the berries in the refrigerator. I still need to go through them and remove the tiny stems and throw out any that are too far gone. But bugs! Will I be able to eat the berries without gagging? Are they worth the trouble of gathering because *bugs* and the teeny tiny stems?

Are you sure they are blackberries and not mulberries?  Either way, they are edible, but you need to wash them really well.

Thanks @Browncoat. They are mulberries. I'd always thought they were but then someone told me they were blackberries. Stick with your first answer! I've fixed the original post.

I've now read a couple of sites describing how to clean them thoroughly and how long they can be stored, so tomorrow I'll see what's fallen into the buckets I set out this afternoon and see how it goes.
