THE PIZZED OFF PART (and) HELP!
Years ago I moved into my dream home complete with state-of-the art kitchen. I had always wanted a hanging pot rack filled with Copper Pots. I indulged, called in the handyman and hung a pot-rack filled with the shiniest and most beautiful pots, pans, bowl, lids all hanging over my center island.
Ten years later with the oldest moving out and the house far too big, we down-sized and the beautiful copper pots went into a box and into storage, only to be forgotten.
With another move under my belt I found these forgotten pots and bowls and made the conscious decision that I was going to use these as cookware at least once before I died. Morose, I know.
After contacting the company I proceeded to take the laqueur off said pots and said pans. I tried boiling them with baking soda. I tried laqueur remover to get the balance off. I bought a copper scraper which did nothing but scrape my copper.
To this post: I have a dining room table full of copper ‘stuff’ which no longer have sheen and no longer have beauty. They have become the ugli-fruit. Dark, with blemishes so black I am embarrassed for them and by them.
$25.00 worth of copper cleansers did absolutely nothing to restore their beauty. Then I did the unthinkable, I place an online order for Bar Keepers Friend Copper Glo from a Canadian online kitchen supply company along with two other products to make the shipping costs worthwhile.
Guess What? canada post lost the order. canada post even though they had a tracking number that cost an extra ten bucks – lost the order!!!
Never have I had that happen in all the years I am using Canada Post.
The Online Kitchen Supply Company had only one Bar Keepers Friend Copper Glo left and they had shipped it to me. No, no more on order, not for another six months….too bad Natalie.
I give up! Those copper pots, those copper pans, those copper bowls can go _____ bleep bleep THEMSELVES.
The saying that sometimes things just never go right is so true. You know how you sometimes regret ever beginning or starting a task especially when you have a sinking feeling you really don’t know what you are doing?
Now every morning I wake up and sitting on my Dining Room Table staring at me are these, the ugliest copper pots I have ever seen – so any suggestions from anyone? Cause I am really pizzed off.
INTERNET EXPLORER DOES NOT SHOW MY BLOG IN ITS ENTIRETY.
SOMETHING IS SCREWED UP IN MY CODING FOR INTERNET ON WORDPRESS
FIREFOX AND ALL OTHER SEARCH ENGINES WORK FINE
In Fact a WordPress Member told me I had the MOST CODE VERIFICATION ERRORS he has ever seen!!!
Do they give medals for that?
So if there is someone willing to help I would be grateful. Otherwise not only will I have given birth to a new name: this baby might be changing Themes too.
THE ROCKS PART
See directly above: This Baby Will Soon Be Looking Mighty Different
What would a week be without reading the Gurgling Cod. Half the things he writes I don’t understand and the other half I get the gist of. Great writing talent. I’m sometimes to stupid to understand him.
The Kitchn: Apartment Therapy printed my question on how to clean my copper pots and the comments were great. I love that people actually respond with input when it comes to reading and blogging online. The Apartment Therapy website has fabulous articles and editors and Thanks very much.
On the other hand I fixed my Blackberry Curve when an error code JVM 102 popped up and neither technical nor store support could help.
AND I got my Food Network Magazine even after I sent in an address change. Boy it’s FAT. Have they eaten Gourmet?
Is it possible that Pinch My Salt puts out a Wordless Wednesday September 9 showcasing her Boston Terrier, the cutie, and she STILL is getting comments to this day? Pinch My Salt…good for you…and will you be at Blogger Camp? Does your Boston hide his treats like mine does? She just walked out of her 2 by 4 crate having left behind her teether bone; does she really think she hid it? And cries if she can’t find a good spot.
Just before this is going to post don’t you think I get this fabulous rustic apple pie recipe in my mailbox from Simply Recipes:
Now I am off to get the ingredients and start the oven…that and some ice cream: Why Not Go All The Way!
And I thought not much this week Rocked. I spent most of my time on the computer fixing, YES FIXING, the Blackberry, I DID, and then trying to fix Internet Explorer language glitch for WordPress. I DID NOT. So this week probably had a lot of Rocks, but I didn’t get to read them. I hope next week give me more free time to roam the world; but I’m telling you now: If it snows I will be plenty pizzed.
