I grew up with Nintendo and Game Boy, and now I'm a big fan of iOS games. I play Sims Freeplay, Pocket Planes, Tiny Tower (original and Vegas) and Sim City BuildIt.

comment Stockpot double as beer brewing pot
Yes, but having a brew pot is TONS better if you want to use full grain. I've brewed from a 5 gal stock pot for a long time and would never go back to it no that I have a brew pot with filtered spigot.

comment Standardized symbols for marking food allergies / warnings?
Oh OK, I see what you mean. I could see using a v for vegan, but it could also mean vegetarian. I think people could get nitpicking with it.... Like tree nut free vs just nut free, or refined sugar free, etc. I actually know of a vegan ice cream shop that has a menu with a chile pepper for hot, a nut for includes nuts, a pictograph of wheat for contains gluten, etc. then you have to be clear that the symbol = has it, or with a X doesn't have it so its not ambiguous.

comment Standardized symbols for marking food allergies / warnings?
I'm not going to post an official reply, but as a vegan, I find I always have to read the ingredients, because there really aren't many labels, and they aren't used consistently. I read labels until I am comfortable with the food item, then i feel OK skipping it.

@TFD, 1-2 tbsp does coat the bottom of my pan, which is large and shallow. Only one I've got.

comment Minimum procedure for sterilizing mason jars for canning
It really depends on the amount of time the jars spend processing. And that link firstly doesn't work anymore and secondly is about pressure canning, which is a lot different from hot water canning.
