I bought a few inflatable loungers (similar to the Lamzac), and the inner bag has sprung a leak in one of them. The company that made them doesn't seem to exist anymore, but given the number of knockoffs, this seeems to be a fairly standard item. Does anyone know where I can buy replacement liners?

How can I control/observe my parents' iMac screen remotely from my own Mac when I'm at home? They made the switch and now I'd like to be able to share their screen to remotely help them figure out, fix and set up things as they need it. There's Back to My Mac, but as I understand it, this is for when both computers are my own and I sign into iCloud on both machines. It looks like I can use Messages, but I'm not clear on what kind of chat account I need? I'm aware of Skype, LogMeIn, etc., but can I do this without additional software? The Sharing panel in System Preferences? Any thoughts? Thanks in advance. Both iMacs are running Mountain Lion.

Cooking Help: Is too much Rosemary causing these slow-cooked meat braises to get too bitter? Last night I did a slow roast / semi-braised Lamb shoulder (bone in) and there was this familiar bitterness that I've noticed before in my cooking and other peoples cooking. From memory I am associating it with Rosemary being present. Its hard to remember exactly but I feel that rosemary is usually involved. But I think there is also often whole sliced lemon involved.

I love cooking with my new dutch oven, but have never liked the taste of alcohol in food. I know I can always substitute, but is there a good braising cookbook that minimizes alcohol use in the recipes?

I watched a film called "Return Of The Jedi" recently. Perhaps some of you have seen it. In the first act, a motley band of heroes executes an ingenious plan to rescue a comrade from an obese crime lord. Wait, what exactly was their ingenious plan?

Sometimes I decide that I should buy Grape Nuts for breakfast because this cereal seems to be very healthy. Unfortunately, I always lose interest when I actually eat the cereal. Is there anybody out there who eats Grape Nuts daily and enjoys it? What do you do to it to make it edible?
