What did you learn today!

No matter how old we are, we are always learning. How about sharing something in a nutshell that you learned today that was previously unknown to you.

I'll start off, and I had to think about this cause it's early.

I learned that I can not get interested in reading a book called EVE by Wm. Paul Young. I am half way thru it and it is boring and uninteresting. Today it goes back to the library.

I learned that an ant lion (or doodlebug) is the larval form of an lacewing insect. Who knew?

I learned that you shouldn't leave batteries in when not using the item they power, and how safely store them - bought storage boxes and a meter so we will always have charged ones at our finger-tips. Easy-peasy!

I learned that a 6" chicken teriyaki sub from Subway only has 4.5gms of fat [without cheese]. Been putting on a few extra lbs this Holiday Season.

I learned that the man who sings, "You're a mean one, Mr Grinch" is also the voice of the original Tony the Tiger of Frosted Flakes fame. His name is Thurl Ravenscrof. I never made the connection before, but it makes perfect sense after hearing the story on the radio.

I learned that switching to two 6 volt golf cart batteries is definitely worth the cost.

I learned that California has some of the best IPAs ever and as I'm typing this( like right now) I just took a big sip for Smoker Bill! I'm in Bodega Bay for 12 days and enjoying every minute of it.

Thanks for the drink! I had a couple of Elysian IPAs myself yesterday that were pretty darned good.

Learned that stove burner bushings can melt and cause issues. In all my years of doing this I never had that happen. Kind of scares you when you see flames under the stove top. $0.99 part can cause quite a problem. I keep spares now.

Where did you get the spares, John?

Luckily local place had them.

Description: Wedgewood Burner Sleeve
P/N: 40-0869

These fit the Atwood Wedgewood Vision stove, but I'm sure they'd fit others.

A quick Google search for "Atwood burner sleeve 40-0869" brings it up pretty quick online, and a little cheaper.

I learned that the dealership won't just replace the residential fridge door with a dent in it. Apparently a whole new fridge has to be ordered! Luckily it's under warranty and isn't costing me anything, but what a waste! This this the last thing I'm waiting on to complete our warranty repair list. I was told that the fridge should come in next Wednesday or Thursday....we shall see!

Thanks John. That's my stove also.
