Seasoning cast iron..... Answered

I do not like the factory seasoning on a cast iron skillet I have. Should I season over it or remove the factory black, nasty crap and season on my own from scratch? It's a shame how poorly companies, even good ones like Lodge have such poor quality seasoning on their products.

'Tis the Season to be Missing...

.. fa lalalala la la la la! OK folks, I'm off to the wilds of Northern England in about 18 hours from the time of typing, spending Christmas with relatives who don't really grok modern technology, so my access to the inter tubes will be sporadic. Just in case I don't get online before then, I'd just like to wish you all the best for whichever version of the season you choose to celebrate.  Whether you are celebrating with family, friends, I wish you a relaxing time with your loved ones. If you are celebrating alone, I wish you a hug from a stranger and a phone call from a distant friend.  If they don't phone you, you should phone them, just to wish them a happy holiday, and to remind them that they are in your thoughts. The tree was posted on Laughing Squid. EDIT OK, so I didn't end up missing so much, but I will definitely be offline for the next 24+ hours. Happy Holliers, one and all!

All Season greenhouse?

I live in Northern, Ontario, Canada. We get only a few warm months through the summer and its fairly cold for the rest of the year, dropping down to about 40 below, Celsius!!  I have a vegetable garden in my backyard that does fairly well during the summer but I would like to be able to have fresh vegetables for my family year round. Is there any way I could build an outdoor greenhouse that I can use year round, without costing a fortune?  I also have a spare room on the upper level of my house that I could use but I don't want it to become too humid and rot my walls. Any ideas would help! Thanks!

'Most X on record' climate list?

Does anyone know if there's a list/graph of the 'Most -whatever- on record' for the world, season by season? What I mean is, countries recording their hottest summer, wettest winter, worst drought, etc. I ask because it would give a pretty striking visual for climate change. It seems everywhere I spend any time it's the most something season on record, or at least for 40-50 years. Here's a little list I compiled a couple years ago, from where I'd been: 2002 - summer - New Zealand - worst drought on record          - summer - Western Australia - worst drought on record          - spring - Malaysia - hottest on record          - winter - Ireland - wettest on record          - autumn - Ireland - mildest 2003 - summer - Australia - worst drought          - summer - United Kingdom - hottest summer, hottest day          - summer - New Zealand - highest UV index 2004 - summer - British Columbia - longest          - summer and autumn - British Columbia - worst fire season 2005 - winter and spring - Victoria, Australia- wettest          - summer - Australian east coast - hottest          - summer - Western Australia - coolest Since then it's been worst droughts, floods, cyclones, wettest summers, and now snow. If it hasn't been graphed, it should be.

Season branches for walking sticks

Does anybody have an idea for building a small seasoning 'shed' or box for 5 to 7 foot long walking sticks that speeds up the process? We're in Florida and the air remains moist year round. I build a kiln controller for my wife and was figuring on building a small room on our back porch and making thermostat for a space heater and putting it in there, but if anyone has any ready made plans that's relatively inexpensive, I'm all ears. :)

Is there a particular season for ginger root?

I was grocery shopping... one place (a Walmart Neighborhood Market) did not have any ginger (they did about two months ago). The next place (Publix -- a large supermarket chain in the south east) had some, but most of it was moldy and disgusting (surprising because Publix tends to keep very high standards). Just curious if there's a reason why I can't find any. I'm looking to experiment with homemade ginger ale - I had some in a restaurant, so I want to do some testing to come up with a similar recipe :D

My name is Kiteman, and I'm an addict... needing a fix!

Some time ago, Lost started on British TV. I'd heard it was good, but I missed the pilot. I also heard that, if you missed the pilot, nothing else made sense.  So, I avoided watching the series, figuring I'd catch the repeats. ...and suddenly they're on season five, and I haven't seen any of them! So, I bought season one on DVD.  Seven discs, twenty-five episodes and a bunch of extras. I picked it up on Saturday, and despite spending a day in school, and a day visiting a friend and her new baby (awww.....), and managing to hunt down my first Mediterranean Gull, I've just watched episode 13 17. Please, no spoilers, I just wanted to say... Whoa! UPDATE: All done.  Twenty-five episodes, and the extras (except the commentaries - I don't like commentaries). We never got to see the Big Scary Monster (although it sounded distinctly mechanical by the end), we never found out where Ethan came from, nor the polar bears. What about the four on the raft?  Last we saw it was still burning, and little Walt! So, I'm now haunting ebay for Season Two - we need to find what's down that ladder....

How to watch the second season of Survive This?

I love all things survival, and I used to love Survivorman with Les Stroud. After he stopped his Survivorman series, he made a new show called Survive This. It's about survival among kids. I love this show, and have watched the entire first season. The second season is out now, but it being a Canadian TV show, I can't seem to watch it on my TV, or even find a place to watch it online. Season One was on Cartoon Network, so I could watch that. Cartoon Network dropped the show, though, so now I can't find a place to watch Season Two. Can anyone help me? Thanks!

Whale hunting season, begins again...

Just interested in how "ible" members felt, about Japanese whaler's entering protected zones for the purpose of research.. This is also the first year they will be escorted by an Australia research vessel to gather documentation to use against this process. The fleet has recently set sail for our southern water's with the intention of harvesting humbacks for the first time in decade's. The Australia Anti whaling vessel's, as usual should provide for an interesting event... So what I'd like to know is, since the rest of the world say's NO to whaling why do we not as global power's tell the Japanese to cease... I'm not talking everthing, but atleast during migratory season when they are in sanctuary's and sitting duck's... STOP TALKING ABOUT IT AND STOP WHALING NOW!! Whale can't taste that good, make a synthetic version like fake crab.... fake whale... they need to wake up and deal with it... they are not theirs to take. They are our's, so leave them alone...!!

What I truly hate about the holiday season.

It's when the new shows start telling me how much to tip everyone. The serious "advice" from these people ranges anywhere for a day's pay to a month's salary for everyone from the garbage man (there are four on the trucks in my neighborhood, does each receive $100?) to each person where I get my haircut, not just the barber, EVERYONE. The suggested tips run up into the thousands of dollars. Hey Christmas, go to hell! And let's not forget the office gift exchange, we are strongly encouraged to participate, since they can't make it mandatory, to bring a new $10 gift. Last year I hand made something and caught a firestorm of crap for it. This year, being my last, I bought a $10 gift and gave it to Toys for Tots. Materialistic, self centered BS that's the holiday spirit.

Hunt/Gather contest ends before deer season begins!

I am so excited to see the Hunter Gatherer contest here on Instructables. I am out of the country and cannot participate, but I did notice a major flaw in this contest. They say they want instructibles featuring dressed deaer, but they neglected to look up when deer season begins. The contest closes over a month before deer season even starts in most parts of the United States. Unless people happen to have documented their methods from last year, or deer season in the rest of the country starts well before North Carolina's, that contest will be sorely lacking in all things deer related.

Hi all (again) new problem semi related to previous. (check my profile for the ones with NFL in the title) now the problem is i want to get the average score for each team in each season. my current formula only gets the first result of the index/match even if i use some of the tricks i've googled. the data is in the format of YearVisitingTeam(W/L/D)Score@HomeTeam(W/L/D)Score          ie   201249ersW41@2012PatriotsL34 i use a formula to strip "Year(Visiting/Home)Team(W/L/D)" so i' left with Score on either side of the "@" (that was a [redacted] pain) using any and all of the tricks i know i get either 0, 27 or an error of some sort. the only way i've been sorta able to do this is by getting the first home win, first home loss, first away win, first away loss BUT that's only 4 of 16 games each season and not a good representation of the average points for the team in a season. the sheet in question is AVG point - Reg Season the source data is 78 - current regular season (2012 season starts @ row 3152)

Retractable white roof for passive heating /cooling ?? Dual season roofing idea? Answered

Last summer my top floor apartment was over 115 degrees indoors with blinds closed !  In a recent email to my landlord to report a broken mailbox I suggested the possibility of painting the apartment buildings roof white .  In reward for reporting the mailbox he says I could paint the roof but only above my apartment  . Cool . He says that the insulation was not adequate when built . The apartment has also gotten down to 30' in winter so I can only guess how cold it would get in here without the current black roof.               QUESTION ;  Are there any ideas to help solve both seasonal issues ?   I can't re-insulate because I rent .  I was thinking of a retractable white cover for hot summer days that can be removed in autumn . Or maybe even a white paint that would insulate against cold ??   An original idea was something like Bubble foil but I doubt that would stand up to weather.  Any suggestion would be great .
