internet sympathy? You must have taken a vacation from this here board.

Glad to see you are feeling better. Gray skies can get you down. We use to say that is why the Germans fought so many wars. The sun does not shine most of the time!

Khan,

Glad you are feelin' better. I gave up those cast iron pans because they rusted so easily in my humid neck of the woods.

The days are getting longer a bit at a time and before you know it little baby spring squirrels will be scurrying around your lovely yard looking for treats. Keep on keeping on Khan, you are the best!

It just seemed part of the downward spiral of not being able to take care of myself.

Dear Haha, the electric skillet sits on the countertop and has an internal heating element, so it doesn't have to be manipulated over a stove. The only hand/wrist involvement is a) dumping in the food to be cooked and b) stirring the food with a spatula or some other implement. Also, my electric skillet is fully immersible in water, and thus fairly easy to clean.

Thanks for the compliment on my screen name....I do love gemstones. Perhaps I have some dragon DNA...

BTW, are you and Citrine the only people with gem screen names?

I read one of her posts today and thought of citrine, and wondered why there were not more gem names used. Then I saw this post of yours. They are rich names, with a lomg train of associations.

Ha
I'm changing my name to Quartz.

That must have been an awful feeling!

I was thinking that if it takes a while for your wrist to completely heal, you might feel more self sufficient if you bought or borrowed a lighter pan for a while. But then, with the weather being as it has been, maybe that isn't practical right now. It is probably hard to get out. Sorry that this has been such a difficult time for you.

Looking at the recent avatar changes I'd say the winter blues is affecting all the moderators . Gone are the fun whips and Janice Joplin replaced by judges .

I do have a stainless steel pan, but it is not as versatile. Cast iron good for saute, stir fry, bake, broil, deglaze...

Nords, let us know what you find! In the meantime, I think I will take Dawg54 Doc's suggestion and get me a glass of wine.

Hi Khan. Hang in there kiddo. When the sun has set and the moon is on the rise, going out to hear bands drink beer meet people and dancing my ass off helps keep the blues away. Danny
