I can see the difference between a heated oven and a preheated oven..vaguely. What I have never been able to figure out is why they use term near miss for a airplane accident that ALMOST happened. A near miss, by definition, is a hit.

Mim, I tried to get some hunters together after last season for a venison stew cook off. Maybe we'll have to try to arrange that this year, what with you and Yorick vowing to take multiple stags each! Personally, I think mine will win, but I would love to try others. smile

I'm thinking four or five different recipes, and each contestant is allowed to bring in three friends for blind tasting. They all vote on the best, and the winner takes the prize, whatever that might be.
