OK but it shows you the model's relative KWH use compared to similar models. That doesn't directly translate to $$ for you but tells you which are the least expensive to operate. That's the really important info.

Yup, that is the important bit. But, I noticed that the ones with freezers above are hundreds of dollars cheaper than the same size of fridge with the freezer on the bottom. If I save that back on electricity in a few years, then that's what I'll get. That's why I'm going to see how much my kWh's cost me.

I don't think you will find that to be the case. I read in a link that top freezer models are slightly cheaper to operate than bottom freezer. Both are cheaper than side by side.

On the other hand, freezer on the bottom models are available with French doors.

I have been praying to get a call back to my temp job and finally got the call. I start tomorrow but I must say the timing stinks. It is second shift.
I did temp work for more than 20 years. I loved it. You can't get fired, only released. And in between jobs, I would collect unemployment. Some jobs weren't as temp as I would have liked. But the pay was good. I worked at Wyeth Pharmaceutical for more than three years. Some jobs were fun and some monotonous. I am one of those folks that like filing. I like making order out of chaos. And most files in big companies are a disaster.

So sorry, SB. Though I envy you your rhubarb pie!

I'm making Alix's green tomato mincemeat, and it's really good!

They just showed the second episode of "Call The Midwife" here in Boston. I thought it was going to be a comedy. Instead it is a rather dark series. I am not sure that I am going to stick with the show. If anyone from the UK or Aussieland can convince me otherwise, I am open to listening. But the next season of "Doc Martin"starts this week. I think that show is hilarious. As a rule I like most of the shows from BBC. I love Lewis and Hathaway on Mystery Theatre. One of the things I like about BBC programs is that they show real life. When you die, your eyes are open until someone closes them. You don't fine dead people with closed eyes. But my very favorite are old black and white movies from England. The English can do with B&W mystery movies what no other country can do. They use lighting and shadows like no other. You sometimes need to be wearing a diaper when you watch them. And not just because of old age.

Gently crying at the moment. Good tears. I just put some of my John Hartford CDs in the new Bose system and he's singing Gum Tree Canoe right now. Such a sweet, beautiful song and his voice is a treasure. He was such a gentle, talented, loving man.

My daughter has her Bose system hooked up to her wall to wall TV. You have to keep the volume down low. Her LR is small and the system will blast you out of the room. But the music is breathtaking.
