Kitchenaid Lemon

Posted on September 13, 2007 in life by KG2V

My wife and I closed on our home back in August 2001, and the dishwasher that was there failed before Thanksgiving. Buying a new dishwasher was a “no brain” decision. My parents had 2 kitchenaids at that point (they are still on the 2nd), and in my old house, I had a Kitchenaid the last […]

Today, on another blog, they were asking about what you remember most about 9/11 To me, it’s a long answer. I work in IT supporting the News Division of one of the “big 3” networks. I was at my desk, and is usual for ME, the TV in my office was off. A co-worker called […]
