I find that if masking tape is left on for a while, the glue stays behind and that is harder to remove than the Sharpie ink.

I use a white board marker on plastic storage containers. The writing washes off easily.

And it probably smears when it gets wet. That's why I like the "permanent ink" of a Sharpie.

If you write on a dry lid then freeze the container, it holds up well, especially if the lid has a textured surface. It's also easy to wash off so you can reuse the container.

Yeah, it might hold up in the freezer. I can see that. But, I'm talking mostly about the containers of leftovers that go in the fridge. They get handled more than the ones in the freezer as things are moved around to find something else.

I can remember contents for the three or four days something might be in the fridge. It's the mysteries in the freezer where I need help.

But, at my house, things wander to the back of the fridge and get lost. If it's pesto from a week ago, fine. If it's mystery goop then I want to know if it was meat or veg so I know if it goes in the compost or the garbage.

And it helps Stirling who may not recognize it by colour since he is sort of colour blind.

This week I learned that my eye surgery was the most part of my becoming depressed. Once I heard it was a go and saw in writing the date, my depression lifted. I also learned that the only thing I can do for my daughter is be there for her. That is all anyone can do. She has to go through this on her own with support from the whole family.

A number of years ago my daughter saw this picture of the Boston skyline at night. List of tallest buildings in Boston - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia She fell in love iwth it and wanted a big copy of it for her living room wall. She could never find it. My son #3 enlarged it and is having it matted and framed to give to her as a gift. It should be ready in about a week. The picture was taken from the Cambridge side of the Charles River. (Dirty Waters)

You have to scroll down.

I learned that Alix could write a book. She has a great imagination and will answer any questions asked of her. I have really enjoyed the thread "Getting to know Alix".

I have learned a bit more about car batteries and tyres since having new tyres put on the car and having a new battery installed
