Best places to send photos, negatives, and film to be digitized?

My cousin died a few weeks back. He was the last in his family and my older sister is in charge of his estate. He'd left his mother's house untouched since she died several years ago. My sister found boxes and boxes of snapshots, negatives, and a number of rolls of 8mm film. She dumped them on me since I have been scanning family photos and expects me to scan all of these.

I simply don't have time to do this. I am still working on organizing and putting the family photos - many going back to the mid-1800s - so I can put them online for the extended family to see.

So I want to send this stuff to a service that can digitize all of it. My sister still expects me to organize the most interesting pictures and get them online, which will take a lot of time. But if a scanning service can do it, it will save me years of scanning.

Any suggestions?

GAY! - A Randy Rainbow Song Parody

Paul Hollywood finds the perfect strawberry

I should have known - Putin on the Rtiz

When the PhotoShopped picture resurfaced a few weeks back of Putin riding bare chested on a Ritz cracker, I had a fleeting thought that Randy Rainbow should do that as one of his songs. It turns out he did - five years ago! So here we go:

The only question I have is, which was the Putin riding Ritz image or Randy Rainbow's parody?

Unexpected Rick Astley - NSFW

Not really home improvement but a little DIY

I have a set of cooking pans that are great - but they are now over forty years old and the knobs and handles look worn. Trying to find replacement handle is iffy in my opinion - knobs not so much. But I had a thought - I know there are heat resistant paints.

What would be the best paints to paint these handles and knobs? I am not sure what the material they are made of - some sort of plastic or something.

Bought a bottom round roast today

Since I haven't had any beef for quite a while and they were on sale at the supermarket. I also got some baby bella mushrooms, onions, and sour cream (needed the sour cream for another recipe, but won't need all of it for that).

I like this recipe: https://www.certifiedangusbeef.com/recipes/Bottom-Round-Pot-Roast-with-Mushroom-Onion-Sauce

I have all the ingredients except the beef broth. well, I do have some granulated beef bullion - but it expired six years ago so I'm a little dubious about how it will taste. I have chicken and turkey stock in the freezer, Gravy Master and wochestershire sauce in the fridge, and some red wine.

So what would you recommend I use to make a good base to substitute for beef broth?

Betty White and 2021

Betty White didn't die.
No, no, no.

She grabbed 2021 by the throat, and whispered in its ear "I'm taking you with me, you son of a bitch."

And then she threw them both into the fires of Mordor to save us all.

That's my fucking story and I'm sticking to it.

It is canon. Deal with it.
