I'm figuring out how to use my Rigamonti tomato press/strainer. I have to figure it out again every year when it is tomato season...I don't use it for anything else, although I've heard it can be used like a food mill, I just never think of it when I need to use my food mill...(which I find to be a PITA--and not the kind that delivers hummus to my mouth).

I have a file for just manuals. I also staple the receipt and any warranties to the manual. I need to go through it someday. I have manuals of things I tossed out ages ago. Whenever I give something I no longer want or use to one of my kids, I give them the manual also.

It didn't come with a manual and S/ONE burnt the box when I wasn't around...I keep my manuals in a drawer so I can find them. That is all that is in that drawer--gives you an idea of how many manuals I have.

I'm home, up early thanks to a cat dispute on the bed (which Ken slept through). I'm now trying to discover the source of the mystery smell. Smells a bit like cat, but there's no evidence of any misdeeds and the box is clean. Don't think there has been any kind of water leaking anywhere that we missed. *sigh* I was hoping for an easy solution, but I suspect I will need to do a thorough clean to kill it, and I'll probably never know what caused it.

Yikes, cat dispute on the bed. I hate that. And mystery smells are no fun either.

Heh, I knew what episode you were talking about TL! A favorite, right after "How To Serve Man".
I have six of the type of coffee cup I used most of the time and used yesterday. I could only find five. When I put last of the stuff into the dishwasher, I counted the cups and there they were, all six. The minute guys snuck the empty cup somewhere, maybe into the dishwasher. But, when I could only find five, I was counting the ones in the dishwasher.

Our kitties have been looked after by family for the last two months, so I can't wait for cat disputes again!! We get to have the kitties in our new place on the 1st! Yay!! The only dispute we ever have tho is, "Stop sleeping on my feet!", "Stop sleeping on my chest!", "Stop sleeping on my back!", "Stop sleeping on my hip!"... Well, you get the idea. MY kitty spoons with you under the covers with his head on the pillow. Bf's cat likes to be king of the castle.

I have a lovely scratch on my wrist that looks I was trying to injure myself. Girl cat was being a bit too rambunctious for boy kitty's liking at 530am. He yelled and swatted her and she freaked and launched off the bed...back claw got me. They are both currently passed out on different pieces of furniture looking like nothing happened (brats!).

I've decided to do a yoga class this morning to work out some of the kinks from being in the car for 6.5 hours yesterday. I'll deal with mystery smell later.
