Wikipedia gives several ways to get a degree symbol on a Windows computer.  Look under the heading "Keyboard entry" near the bottom of this page:

I tried, Spud. No luck. Must be Windows.

I just read how important it is to eat carotenoid-rich foods such as sweet potatoes, carrots, kale and spinach for a healthy brain. I eat those ALL the time, but they don't seem to make me any smarter! By the way, I grow them all in my garden.

And thanks for the feedback Randy.

Randy, if you have a Windows computer, it's probably completely different, but with my  Mac computer, I get the degree symbol by holding down both the "Alt" and "Shift" keys, then pressing the "8" key.  I can get a smaller degree symbol by holding down the "Alt" key, then pressing the "K" key.

Spud, I can see all your symbols. I don't know how to make them, esp. the degree one. This is from a guy that couldn't figure out how to turn on his new monitor. Embarrassing.

I was wondering what ever happened to Barbara. She was into gardening and seemed to enjoy our group.

Made "Asian kale stew" last night from the remaining garden kale. I'll probably lose it in the next several days with super cold temperatures forecast.

Me to Daniel. And we'll never know. Cel is still hanging on but she's dropping weight faster now. It's been over six months since her dr suggested hospice so she's beaten the odds. But I'm certain she can't last till Xmas. She's changed the last couple weeks.

Kathy, I really miss Pat too.  He did post that he had a heart attack.  Makes me sad.

Joan that's it. I found out my second sister does have the ingredients and still makes it. She's supposed to bring it to me after Xmas. I remember there were very few onions and peppers. Probably a one to four ratio to the apples and green tomatoes. My sister makes it by memory too.

Daniel, my Grandma Whitehead taught me how to squeeze the lard into the flour until the mixture was a lot of tiny balls. I had to stand on a chair to reach my bowl. Today, I just use my blender; I thin Grandma W would be using that tool as well, if she were alive. 

Kathy, I did find a lot of different recipes for 

apples, 

green tomatoes, 

sweet green peppers, 

onions, 

hot peppers, 

Put all through grinder, 

put all in cloth to drain juice.

apple cider vinegar, 

sugar, 

salt, 

lemon juice.

The recipes included a lot of other ingredients. So, I guess I will just guess at the procedure and quantities.

Yes, I think it was Barbara.
