And yes I have taken a crock pot apart.
That's why I advised Munky it was a PITA.
My statement about a child and toaster was from my father always coming behind my sister and going "Boom" to scare her when she plugged something in. To this day she has an irrational fear of anything electric.
I have no doubt that you and others here have common sense.
H.E double hockey sticks you more then likely have much more then me.
So I won't perceive your "and apparently a bit more than you have." as a "wise guy" statement or "smart remark".
And since this thread has reached it's conclusion since Munky tossed the pot and drifted enough already I'll drift it further.
Folks. I know I'm a bull in a China shop here at times.
But I've been lurking much, much longer then I've been a member.
I joined yet I'm not a joiner.
The Discuss in Discuss Cooking is going away.
Humor has been lost.
Butt hurt is the norm.
Post count or time a member has been here is valued over content of the post or poster.
"Old Boy's" club is rearing it's head.
Excuse the rant my friends.
I'm sure I've overreacted in my perception of some but not all.
You haven't said anything that's not true. No crime in one having his or her own opinion. Sometime their opinions border on abuse, bullying tactics. I guess it's easier for them to do it behind a keyboard. Cowardly if you ask me.
I appreciated all the comments and suggestions that were given.
My question wasn't meant to start a debate. I was just curious.
My son after looking at it lowered the boom and tossed it.
Hope you stick around... What if I have trouble with my LEM?
Yeah, I remember who walked me through the process. As much fun as it was, did that experience ever wear me out.
I haven't drifted.. Swing is more my style. Which means she's doing alright.
Thank YOU, for all the help you've given.
Hope you stick around.
