Tidbits from Make a Note/ Won Tons/Car Accident
SAVE YOUR FLAT TOP STOVES AND OVEN GLASS
Recently we woke up one morning to a completely shattered glass oven door, and we hadn't used it in 3 days. When the repairman came out to replace it, he provided a lot of helpful info that could keep your repairman away. First, apparently a glass oven shattering is something that is a common occurrence across all brands. Sometimes it is a flaw in the glass that breaks after repeated heating & cooling. He said that the number one cause was probably people trying to clean it with damp sponges or sprays when it was still hot. In other words, do NOT clean oven glass until it has completely cooled. The cost to replace the glass was about a third of the cost of a new oven. But he said if we ever broke the flat top stove, that it would be cheaper to get a new stove, than replace the flat top panel. He said the number one cause of flat top breaks is something falling from the cabinet over the flat top. So maybe the microwaves on top aren't such a great idea. But if you have any heavy items above your stove...glasses, dishes, pots/pans, china, and most of us do...MOVE THEM. When you move them, place a pillow on top of the flat top, so if you drop anything, it won't break it. Number 2 cause of flat tops breaking, apparently the handymen in our lives trying to climb to reach something & either stepping or kneeling on the flat top. So prevent the break, and you'll save yourself money later.
• * * USA PASSPORT CARDS
These are new passports, that are ID card sized, convenient and less expensive than the passport book. But they can only be used to enter the United States from Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean, and Bermuda at land border crossings or sea ports-of-entry. They cannot be used for international air travel. Read more about them here...
POST IT...with your current passport, or with your Travel Agent's number.
VETERANS & ACTIVE DUTY...SALUTE IN CIVVIES
For a long time our veterans, and active duty for that matter, were told they should not salute in civvies (civilian clothes). But an amendment was recently passed changing that. So let all those proud veterans and active duty service personnel, that we appreciate so much, know that when a flag goes by or the anthem rings out, to feel free to do a military salute. POST IT...with your hats.

I had been teaching my three-year old daughter, Caitlin, the Lord's Prayer. For several evenings at bedtime, she would repeat after me the lines from the prayer. Finally, she decided to go solo. I listened with pride as she carefully enunciated each word, right up to the end of the prayer:"Lead us not into temptation," she prayed, "but deliver us some E-mail. Amen."
