Dishwasher Safe

I don’t normally do a lot for Columbus Day. I don’t think many people do, outside certain neighborhoods in New York City.

  3. I remember working in Food Service at our dorm and getting promoted to Waiter Captain. There were certain people that you could count on to work on cleaning the dishes and I was glad for the promotion because I wasn’t one of them. However being in charge meant having to make sure that they job got done, so I would have to pitch in.

    Besides having high standards for the food, especially meat, Purdue was very vigilant in regards to the temperature of the water in the dishwasher. As far as I knew there were never any health issues in regards to to food prep at the dorms.

  4. Ghost, I found your quotes very appropriate. I have some neighbors that used to have flags with a certain person’s name on them. They all came down a long time ago. One guy had a large flagpole in his front yard and he took the pole down. We took Cilla to the vet because one of her eyes is looking different. The vet has referred us to a cat eye specialist and we have an appointment tomorrow. We fear the worst. The vet thinks that there is some kind of tumor behind her eye. I’ll keep you informed.
