Please don't do this on cakes with gooey frosting - with or without stinky rubber-bands!

It was sweet to watch you use the old fashioned grater! I got my Grandparents that looks just like yours; they used it on their picnic table after harvest.

Search here or a regular search engine for Green Papaya Salad Recipe (Som Tum). I recommend watching a vid though, because it's fun watching them smash the shredded green papaya in their big mortars.

My parents took me & my brother to a petting zoo, which sold bags of peanuts to feed to whatever animals ate peanuts. One of them went after my bag, almost biting me in the process, but luckily my father was faster than the animal―barely. Like most kids, I had my dumb moments. Like most parents with more than one kid, their attention has to be divided (albeit there weren't affordable cam-recorders back when I was a kid). But according to other stories, the park offered medical assistance, and gave the girl stuffed dolphins to soothe her, so IMO the park responded fine for the minor injury.

G+ General Help  - 
 
UPDATE: Same Error when trying to install Chrome, so this is NOT just a Voice/Hangout Error - IMO(guess) it is a Windows 8 "issue", most likely their Firewall, which I did try to change settings in it to overcome, but to no avail, thank you.

UPDATE #2: I found a "stand-alone" version of Google Chrome, installed as admin, and it wouldn't connect to the internet either. Next I tried turning off Win8 Firewall, still Chrome would not connect to the internet. My next mission is to find a Win8/64bit non-Windows firewall to replace MS's Firewall, thank you.

------

Help please: GoogleVoiceAndVideoSetup.exe + Windows 8 (firewall) installation problem.

Win8's Firewall (W8FW) is different than what I'm used to, but I  "found" W8FW and tried to "allow" the Google Installer, however nothing Google is currently installed, so I couldn't "allow" it into W8FW's allowed programs list.

Next I disabled W8FW (both private & public) then tried installing G+Hangouts again, yet received the exact same error message?!

I click the button called "Show me help for this issue", but all that does is load the homepages for general Google support groups, rather than a list of specific installation tips.

Not sure what to do next. Thanks if you can help me.

Tried again after restarting - again turning off Windows 8 Firewall, and installing as admin, and it installed perfectly!

I can't be certain, but as I restarted, I noticed Windows 8 had updated itself, so maybe that's what was blocking the original installations? I'm not sure if turning off the FW & installing as admin was necessary now that it "might" have been the windows update. Thanks!

One of the Houston local stations called some expert to ask why the building went 5-alarm so quickly. IIRC, it was a combo of steady gusts, plus this construction had no walls yet, which help slow the spread of fire.

Today we were told that had Houston Mayor Annise Parker's "Fire Station Brown Outs" (due to budget cuts) not been canceled yesterday, that the closest fire station would have been the one "browned out" - delaying arrival by approx 6-7 minutes. Hopefully the mayor learned a lesson about which budget cuts shouldn't be touched!

Thanks HFD - you rock! Hope you all got to enjoy the BBQ that restaurant gave to HFD today (day after).

Can't find my original post to Google+ but the problem is resolved after restarting Windows (Windows had installed updates without auto-restart, so I wonder if that somehow blocked Google from installing).

Genealogists might be interested in this free online Coursera course "Immigration and U.S. Citizenship." Here's part of the description: "This course analyzes the historical origins of citizenship and immigration in the United States and provides an overview of modern U.S. law."

Cousin visits Sweet Home Alabama and gets GGgrandparent names for me. Long-story-short, our ancestor immigrated from Antrim, Ireland via Belfast in time to fight in the American Revolution under Cornwallis in Winnsboro!

Kiss me, I'm Irish!!
