FYI,

There's good reason for the installer to insist on new wiring, flexible gas line, water supply lines etc to assure the warranty.

Should any of these fail the installer risks being held responsible for any subsequent fire, explosion or flood.

That being said there is a markup on these items if the installer has to supply them so the customer is going to pay more for them unless they supply their own.

These items are available at any hardware store and should be covered by the installer/manufacturer warranty as new but that would mean a trip to the hardware store and trying to find knowledgeable help at said store that can assist you in finding just the right part in just the right size/length and configuration.

Not worth the hassle IMO.

Sometimes it comes with the appliance and sometimes we have to supply our own.

Its basically an electric cord with a plug on one end and bare wires on the other that have to be hardwired into the appliance.

Wow! I can't remember ever buying an appliance that didn't come with the cord/plug. Okay, a long time ago they used to hardwire 220V stuff to the wires in the wall, but I haven't seen that since the '80s.

Very common with many "large" appliances.

Washers, dryers, ranges, range hoods, dishwashers, disposals, heating furnaces, water heaters with electronic ignition......

Maybe that's one of the differences between the US and Canada.

We won't be eating like this all the time, but a little novelty goes a long way from time to time!
So how did that balsamic/vhoney/mustard vinaigrette come out? Was it tasty? I would bet that it was. And did you use a brown/spicy mustard?

Cullinary minds want to know.

Making mealtime fun is never a bad idea. How did DH take to the idea? Next time let one of them pick the room to eat in as long as it is not the bathroom or the cellar. How about sitting under the table away from all those bad storms out there while they eat popcorn. Arrange the furniture so that a sheet will fit over it and eat in a tent. My kids loved tent living right in the middle of the living room.

Tents in the bedroom, living room, kitchen, wherever, I think is a univeral kid joy. If parents join in, well then it's just an amazing thing.

Remember that parents when you are shopping for those expensive electronic toys this Christmas. Buy them a couple of sheets instead.

So often you hear grownups state that they had more fun when they were kids. And they did. Because they were allowed to use their imagination. I realize we can't send out kids out to play today in the city without worry. But we can't be hovering over them constantly either. In my neighborhood at the end of my street, I see kids out playing all the time. Our building is surrounded by large expanses of grass. The kids like to play ball there. That is fine by me. Some of the residents object. But ask them if they would rather see them join gangs, Horrors! It shuts them up real quick.

I don't think there is anything more joyful than hearing the laughter of children at play. Whether it be in a tent in the living room or outside running on the grass.

Addie, you and I, we think a lot alike. And parents who forget how to take joy in childish things are missing out on half the fun of being alive. I may be in the high-side of my 50's, but I still love to play childish games with kids. I still love to build kites, play with modeling clay, throw snowballs, swim, try to dunk my kids in the pool, etc. I've just become more adept with those things over time.
