    Indispensable Kitchen Gadgets

    I found away to use my $10 prime credit. Our local homeless prevention center put out a call for bath towels. They have an Amazon donation account, so I bought towels and bottled water.

    The Mary Tyler Moore Show

    The Chuckles the Clown gets killed by an elephant episode is on FETV today. That has to be a classic.

    The Great Food Truck Race

    I grew up outside Philadelphia but moved to Maryland (outside DC) in 1978. I use it in a situation where you ask a question and get no answer, you say the response is "crickets", as the only thing you hear are crickets.

    The Great Food Truck Race

    I'm in the Mid-Atlantic and use the term all the time.
  6. In the 1st season, in early episodes they would show a fridge full of healthy food, bowl of apples on the kitchen table. Then the Ps/writers decided to take this turn to the whole unhealthy eating schtick. I realize the Palladinos didn't know at the beginning if the show would last and were still finding the voice of the show, but the changes between Season 1 and later seasons are stark. Kelly Bishop really knocked the character of Emily out of the park. For the most part, so much good writing and acting, but still some glaring continuity errors.
  7. After Richard scolds Lorelai on her handling of the business transaction, it cracks me up when Michel says softly in a sing-song voice - "Someone is in trouble". - Hee.

    The Cast in Other Roles

    I saw that in a trailer at the movies last week. We almost never go to the movies, but friends of ours who are fellow sailors invited us to see the movie "Maiden" about the all female crew of the 1989-1909 Whitbread around the world race. I had forgotten that movies have 30 minutes of trailers before the movie starts.

    What Did We Eat Today?

    I've had California roll sushi and some white grapes. Grilled rib eye steaks with baked potatoes and asparagus for dinner. Since it's a balmy 97 degrees outside, I doubt we'll be eating on the back porch.

    What New Foods Have You Tried?: Like It? Hate It? Share Here!

    Anyone tried Daily Harvest? I went to their website and the only thing that appealed was a smoothie, and I have all the stuff to make one of those.

    Nope, just don't agree with you. And that's okay.

    Lorelai Gilmore: The 10(+) Things I Hate About You

    Gilmore Girls is one of my favorite shows. I've watched every episode more times than I can count, except Season 7, because with ASP not being involved, it just felt off. That said, the series finale never fails to bring me to tears. And I adore Lauren Graham - I think she did an amazing job playing Lorelai.

    Commercials That Annoy, Irritate or Outright Enrage

    I'm surprised no one has mentioned the Digiorno pan pizza commercial. "Pan, pan, pan, pan!" I realize pan pizza has a thick crust, but that "pizza" they show looks disgusting.

    Hah! I don't even hate-watch Pioneer Woman. I can't change the channel fast enough when she comes on. I just enjoy the snark.
