    I'm kind of a cooking snob and tend to shun convenience food....until I tried rotisserie chicken. Not only are they tasty right from the plastic boat they come in, but they can be easily dismantled and used to create a different, more exciting dish. And they're less expensive than an uncooked chicken that I'd have to cook.

    Where do you get the bison from? I wouldn't guess you have a bison farm on the east coast.

    They make dishwashers for a reason folks. A quick rinse and into the washer they go. It's one of the nice modern amenities.

    I hate it when people go off on political rants tangents and overgeneralize about certain elements of society. Can we please get back to the point of this conversation??

    The person who administers our main street program Facebook page tends to use it as his own soapbox. He posted something of a political nature this morning and is taking a beating about it. I'll be watching to see how it plays out.

    I'm on the Main Street board, and brought up his inappropriate content at a meeting, and I took a beating for criticizing a volunteer.

    Going to be on the road again today. Willcox, AZ to Pecos, TX so posting will be minimal.

    We gave up our dishwasher when we moved from one house to another. I don't think we ever used it more than once or twice a year. For a two-person household, it's just as easy to wash dishes by hand.
