In Memoriam

I haven't been here for awhile.  Life has dished out some road bumps, there have been a few dramas and two deaths in less than six months.  I just didn't have it in me.
I knew when I could listen to music again that life was coming back, a little at a time.
I lost my 38 year old son on September 24, 2018 from diabetes complications and I lost my wonderful and loving father-in-law March 13, 2019.  Rest in peace my family.  

Intelligent Dishwashers...NOT People

I haven't been here for awhile. A few life dramas and a couple of deaths left me sort of empty for awhile.
When I was able to listen to music again, that's when I knew I was coming back.  

Last week we got a new dishwasher installed and I am getting used to the fact that when you purchase ANYTHING new now, it comes with an encyclopedia of warnings and instructions. Do you KNOW why I'm not an airline pilot???
Today I decided to go rogue and R-E-A-D instructions. Oh. My. Kanobi. First warning says; "RISK OF EXPLOSION". wth?????
"Under certain conditions. hydrogen gas may be produced in a hot water system that has not been used for two weeks or more. Hydrogen gas is explosive. Before using a dishwasher that is connected to a hot water system that has been unused for two weeks or longer, turn on all hot water faucets and let the water flow from each for SEVERAL MINUTES. This will release any accumulated hydrogen gas. As the gas is explosive, do not smoke or use and open flame during this time."
Well...who knew??

Some of the comments after I posted my new purchase. ;)

    D: Does the dishwasher make sandwiches too?

    Janie Thompson No Dan, we got the cheaper model, lol! I don't care for all the metallic looking ones so we got...oh no...a WHITE one! And the guy said it was noisy. Guess he never heard my OLD one, sometimes thought it was in it's death throes!

    Janie Thompson This new one is like a Prius. Can't hear it running at all. Again, guess the old one (which was 17 years old and still running okay) came with a club and hair all over it.
