|[Ben]:||An idea whose time has come: Franks Red Hot Salt ||Discuss This [0 comments so far] View Comments|
|Removing the liquid component from Franks Original Red Hot Sauce results in a salty/spicy flavoring that could be used for rubs on meats, as a sprinkle-on seasoning for foods, seasoning for chips and popcorn, or anywhere that salt would be added but an extra kick is desired.|
If you want to test this yourself, fill the bottom of a ceramic or glass bowl with 1/8" of Franks Original Red Hot Sauce. Let sit overnight. Scrape the resulting crust from the bottom of the bowl and crush into a powder.
So, until Big Hot Sauce gets their act in gear, you too can try this creation.
I think I'm going to submit this idea to Reckitt Benckiser Inc.

|Today there was a note waiting for me from an anonymous reader who was having trouble with a macro I made available a few years ago. |
I wanted to use your macro on this link:
http://www.benswenson.com/news.php?ctrl=viewNews&objid=1673. But when trying to run the macro I get a Random Select Macro - Compile Error: Sub or Function not defined Error. Could you perhaps point me in the right direction for getting the macro to work under Excel 2010?
I'd reply directly to you, but you didn't leave any contact info, so here's the solution.
To get this macro to work, you need to add the following function:
|Public Function GetColumnLetter(colNum As Long) As String|
Dim i, x As Long
For i = Int(Log(CDbl(25 * (CDbl(colNum) + 1))) / Log(26)) - 1 To 0 Step -1
x = (26 ^ (i + 1) - 1) / 25 - 1
If colNum > x Then
GetColumnLetter = GetColumnLetter & Chr(((colNum - x - 1) 26 ^ i) Mod 26 + 65)

Good night, old girl

|Today Adelle got my copy of Tunnel in the Sky off the shelf. Cara asked her what the book was called. She said "Heinlein."|
Cara texted me at the time and mentioned it at dinner (without using any of the key words) and I said "Wow, she knows the author!". Then, thinking better of it, I demurred "Or at least something she heard in association with the book."
Cara thought about it for a second, shrugged and asked Adelle "Who wrote Tunnel in the Sky?" No visual cues at all.
Adelle didn't miss a beat. "Heinlein."

|A conversation at the back window. |
"Snow falling down. Oh no!"
"What's 'oh no!' Adelle?"
Pointing at a lawnchair that blew over: "Chair fall down. Pick up?"
Pointing at pond "Water. Blow bubbles!"
At the kitchen table.
"Mama sitting. Daddy sitting. Adelle sitting. All sitting!"
Cara looking outside talking to me: "Yeah, it's bad."
Adelle: "It bad!"
