Jo , New York – My Experience with #Justhost – Here is the my experience with #Justhost. few day ago my web site(WordPress) hacked. I submit ticket for #Justhost for recover my website from backup. Here is what they said. ******************************** Hi, Website ******.com is looking good for me. How and where can I see it has been hacked? Please point me to exact URL. But if you wish entire account “lotusws” to be restored from backup I can do it right now. Note: we have the backup from Nov 23rd. Thank you, Alexander ******************************** I asked therm to proceed restore from backup. after they delete all my websites. they said “We don’t have a backup”. I was really shocked but they even didn’t say sorry. It is more than big mistake but it seems they don’t care for what they have done to customer. I’m considering lawsuit against #Justhost for my loss of entire websites. They should be responsible for what they have done to customer.’s John Birdsall shows how he makes perfect salted almonds for cocktail hour at his house—all you need is a paper grocery bag.

    I've got a better one. Get 3 teaspoons of water and mix with one teaspoon of salt. Then mix it with your almonds until all of them get really moist. Now you can roast them in the microwave. Be careful. Roast for 2 minutes, stop, stir. Repeat until roasted. If you do it right, the almonds will end up covered in a thin layer of salt crust. It also works very well with peanuts.

    if you roast them yourself you can get them exactly how you want them, they are fresh and there are no unnecessary preservatives or msg added, in addition to that they are much cheaper that way

    I prefer my food without synthetic msg in it, i don't need to do any more research. If you like your food with msg, fine, do that. I never said it was harmful or told anyone not ot use it. I'm not using it, that is all.

    A video finally showcasing the secret to salting things that has been done by scores of half baked potheads, too lazy to beat you to making a LAME tutorial with their fries at Mcdonalds. #Bravo

    I love this recipe! I like to use a little bit more olive oil than salt, and I grind up the salt with a mortar and pestle to make it into a powder, then it adheres to the almonds even without a paper bag.
