We just got home from minor shopping excursion and a meal out. We went to Canadian Tire and got a non-stick skillet, so I can try to make omelettes, a new shower head, and a largish spider, the "Asian skimmer", kitchen tool kind of spider.

I've always wanted to have a 'spider'. So is Canadian Tire like a Home Depot, or a Lowe's? I hope you're happy with your non stick skillet, Taxlady, and have fun with making omelettes.

Not familiar with Lowe's. A bit like Home Depot, but they have a lot of car stuff. Most of them do car maintenance and repairs. It started out as a tire store.

Try making omelettes? You've never made an omelette?

Huh! You better not make fun of me if I say I never made something. You're not that far away. I'll get you!

I wasn't making fun. Just asking in case I read the post incorrectly.

I got my over-the-stove microwave because my kitchen is so small that my old microwave took up too much counter space. My light is somewhat in the middle between the front and back. I don't think it exhausts very well. I still set of the smoke-detector.

My son has a range hood exhaust that is vented to the outside. He is going to replace it with a microwave and wants DH to help him install it. I will have to go with him because I am the one who reads the directions anytime he puts something together. Honestly, I think he can't read very well or had poor reading comprehension. So I help him out. Most of the time it's something he's putting together for me anyway.

Ok. I have a Facebook account, but there is nothing in it. I never set up my profile. No pic, no messages, no friends, no nothing. When I clicked on the link all I got was this message.

Thank you, Carol

10 years ago people started using Facebook to connect with each other in a new way. Thanks for being a part of it.


I guess there was nothing there to make a video. After hearing about Cara's boozing video I think I'm glad! LOL

I think the fan (and now the light in my case) is a waste. I originally bought this kind because my stove is not vented and the lighting is terrible. The fan really didn't do much and the light was OK, but now like I mentioned it's location is useless.
If it wasn't for wanting the holes to line up I would have purchased a different under the counter model. As a matter of fact I don't know why I wasted my time rotating the blower motor when I'll probably never use it.
