Clean Pot Holders and Shiny
AFTER MANY MONTHS of complaining that I am tired of
being the only person flapping their gums on the website,
I have succeeded in tricking, uh, I mean, convincing,
another person to join me on these pages. This brave
volunteer columnist happens to be a woman. All you
women who might have had a different opinion on things
Ive discussed now have a representative voice
in the pulpit.
Starting today, the Fling section will offer the wit
and wisdom of Donna Jenkins Monnin. We're glad to have
her on board. Welcome, welcome.
Along with this new development, I am working on some
content for a Music & Arts section. We were fortunate
at HSHS to have a great number of talented individuals,
musicians and artists alike. If you have any art, poetry,
music lyrics, or photography etc. you would like to
contribute, please feel free. Send
me an e-mail, and we can figure out how to get your
talent into the site.
We are still looking for new RECIPES
for the web sites Cafeteria
area. And I thought I read somewhere on the site that
the recipe for the cafeterias hot rolls was available.
As so may have guessed by now, cooking and food is
near to my heart. Speaking of which, why is it that
women will not allow you to use pot holders that are
hanging up in the kitchen and conversely will not allow
you to hang up the used ones. That, Im afraid,
is Fuzzy Logic. Who cares if the kitchen utensils are
battle scarred? I mean each burn and each spot are reminders
of family dinners past. Memories to be cherished. They
should be hung up and displayed like cherished family
If I were to apply that logic to my garage, I would
have to have two sets of tools. One set would be for
display purposes and one would be for actual work. I
can see it now, my neighbor comes over and asks if he
can borrow a drill and we go into the garage where his
eyes light up as he sees my tools on the wall mounted
pegboard. Wow Jack, This is quite an impressive
display of tools!. In fact, this drill hanging here
will do nicely.
Oh no,. says I. You cant use
these tools. They are for display only. If you used
one of these I couldnt hang it on the wall again.
Why, Im afraid Id have to go out and purchase
I see your point
says my neighbor,
What happens when you need a tool?
I go right to these drawers, I respond,
and pull out one of these scuffed ones for actual
Man! exclaims my neighbor, A complete
extra set, and theyre color coordinated too! Youre
a regular Martha Stewart and Bob Vila combined!
Thats right, I say. I owe
it all to my wife and her pot holders.
