    The family " might " forgive me even though I DID NOTHING WRONG!!
    I was simply deleting the 7 small clips I had recorded from the Leafs game last night ( I record the replays of half decent fights, hard hits, goals, for my DH to watch )
    However, since they lost last night, I was getting rid of them.
    The same way I delete all my shows and recorded things I've watched already.

    I hit the show title and then click " edit ", press select all, then select delete, then as usual the machine says " are ya sure ya wanna delete all these items ?"
    I clicked YES.....
    but the screen freezes....hmmm, I press yes a few times more, nothing happens so I turned the tv off.
    ( my remedy for everything computery related )
    I turn it back on and to my horror EVERY single thing the 4 of us had is gone!!
    ( btw the other 3 people here have not yet watched some of their shows yet )

    This is major! I mean I can live with the loss of never seeing the missed episodes of Riverdale, Empire, or many other things I had in there, but poor DH, ALL his Three Stooges stuff, his nature documentaries, his favourite Art show! All deleted!
    Poor DD, she never really has time and only occasionally catches up on the various Series that we've all seen.

    I wanted to cry, but I know I did not do this! The machine messed up somehow.
    sigh.

    As of Monday April 17 Bulk Barn is going to start charging for their carry out bags. Wah! I liked their bags - they were strong!

    Hope the store does not change their bags to the flimsier plastic as most stores have done. Or that means more work for us as customers. I'm sure one day someone will try to carry flour without a clear bag and say just weigh what I am holding in my hands.

    Screaming Kitchen Productions presents: The One Baker in the Kitchen Zone-Easter Edition

    Scene 1: Baker clears and cleans countertop and begins work on dough for loaf. Get dough kneaded and put into greased bowl for rising (covered). Moves to get batter made for brownies-gets almost to batter ready to pour into prepared pan and DRAMA ensues when one parent will not stay out of the kitchen when baker says "wait 10 more minutes and I'll be done."

    Fill in the blanks on your own. The brownies did not turn out too well; loaf did even though top braid listed to one side while baking (but not during rise #2). I will not make a third baked item nor dye eggs. Major sugar consumption is expected on the weekend (helped by Pepsi Wild Cherry pop).

    Dough for hot cross buns is currently rising in the oven. The problem? I forgot to double the recipe. I need more than 12 buns for a minimum of 8 people. Now I have to go back to the Bulk Barn for more mixed fruit, however, I can't til later tonight. Easter is being celebrated tomorrow rather than Sunday. Hopefully, I will have time tomorrow to make more buns.

    People in my house know better than to come anywhere near the kitchen when I am in holiday baking mode.

    I totally thought this story was going to end with, and I used flour from Costco and it was recalled.

    It is not how much we have, but how much we enjoy, that makes happiness.

    @nicolthepickle -I did use flour from the 10kg Robin Hood bag and when the first recall came out, I checked the bag's date and production code and it's not affected. Or I will find out on Sunday if there are any issues with the baking.

    OH MY Gawd!!!!

    It happened again!! Last night, but I was no where near the tv or the pvr.
    DH came up to bed and said one minute they were all there ( shows we had recorded ) and then "poof " they were gone!
    What is going on??
    I have no idea how I will ever catch up on Empire now!!
    I had just recorded WarCraft too for my son, lucky there was another listing so I have set that up to record once again.

    GRRRRR!!!

    Probably a malfunctioning piece of electronic inside the unit or maybe there is corrosion somewhere? Sibling's dvd player (non Blueray) had a recurring issue with recording and also the clock but I recall it was an older model on sale that someone had returned so those issues were part of the deal.

    Is your unit under some warranty or can someone at home MacGyver a repair attempt? Maybe the drive is compromised or the read/write head has an issue. Suggest you visit Youtube and type in your PVR brand model and see what videos come up or find a forum dealing with your tv provider to see who else has had your PVR woes.

    Last night, I heard sibling's laptop rev up. Sometimes when I jiggle the wooden table downstairs, the movement brushes a cord or cable. I did not know he had left his unit on standby but it has the eerie habit of sounding like it's starting up and no one had used that unit.
