    I read the other day that oil based salad dressings don't need refrigerated. That's fine, oil does not need refrigerated. So does that mean that no salad dressing needs refrigerated? All dressings that I can think of have oil in them. If not, where do you draw the line? Italian dressing is mostly oil but has other stuff too. So is it refrigerated or not?

    This is damn important!

    Ranch and thousand have dairy, so that would get foul.

    That's not the point. I also refrigerate my ketchup, which does not require it.

    Buy olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and assorted spices. Mix as needed. Pretty much all bottled dressing require refrigeration at some point.

    "Just like other condiments, most salad dressing, especially ones that are vinegar- or oil-based, are just fine stored outside the fridge. Cream-, yogurt-, or mayo-based dressings should be stored in the fridge." The web is full of non-refrigerated salad dressing advice, my overly cautious friend.

    Not a bad idea. The alarm has been going off a lot lately telling me that my hard drive has reached 126 degrees F.

    I've been backing it up a lot lately in case it fails. I think the thermostat that is supposed to turn the fan on is faulty because it isn't always on when I get those warnings. It's a laptop and they are a pain in the ass to take apart. I often break something else just getting the damn thing apart. I suppose I'll do it one of these days.

    I'll remember to start taking my magnifying glass with me to the store.
