Thanks PF, good to know. Hope poor Charlie didn't try to choke down straight lemon juice!

Automatic load sensing washing machines take too long to complete a wash cycle. We've had our Whirlpool washer for 2 years now and I never liked it.
It takes over an hour to complete a regular wash, it's such an inconvenience, especially if you need to put the wash in the dryer so you can go to bed, go to work, or whatever, which is usually the case for me.
I don't care if it saves water. I'd like to be able to set my own water and load level, my time's more important. EOR.

I hear you on that. How annoying.

No, no, of course I did not, I just added a little bit to my mineral water.

There is a funny story about lemons. As kids we used to take subway a lot. So we would pull this stuff. We are seating talking to each other, couple of guys usually, then get couple of lemons from our shopping bag and start casually eating them as if they were apples or something else yummy. People would go nuts. You should see somebodies face when you make first bite. It took a little bit of getting used to it, and it is really not that bad after you do. But it is funny.

You are certainly welcome, Charlie. No sense keeping something like that under my hat.

And I still eat lemons like that.

When I was a bartender, we had to cut up a lot of citrus. The best breath freshener ever is to chew a slice of lemon along with the pith and peel.

We now have Gnat season to go along with Tick season. And the mosquitos have also arrived. Sigh.

For gnats, I do find a dab of Absorbine Junior around the neck and ears seems to repel them. They were horrid during our walk last night, tonight with the Jr, not so much.

I'm sorry, but

That is pretty strange. Good thing it didn't hit the counter or dish rack.
