Randall, I don't even have a dishwasher; unless you count me, a sink, and a washing pad. Since it's mostly just me, I have very few dishes during the week, and I just can't see the justification for one.
The quiche sounds good. Had a very ripe local freestone peach for breakfast today, along with an egg and some whole grain bread. Reminded of me of the album by the Allman Brothers.
I have no idea why I have a dishwasher. I NEVER use it! Same with a garbage disposal (I compost). I got caught up in the propaganda that says a house sells better if it has these applicances. However, I never plan to sell, so why should I care?
Eating off a delicious brocolli quiche I made two evenings ago. Good for breakfast, too.
About 25 years ago I worked in the bookkeeping dept. of a small company that was in the process of switching from all types of electronics to cell phones only. I knew then that they would be a pain in the ass, swore that I would never own one....and haven't changed my mind. (When I was still driving, I thought about getting the least expensive type, for emergencies, but gave up the car, instead.)
Correction! Larry just discovered the blocking device is no longer legal in USA, but customers complained and want phone service as they eat. Too bad. Well, I like Carl's example:
"WARNING! The use of cellular phones at Perry's is strictly prohibited. If you are that important that you must use a phone during lunch, you should be eating in a much more up-scale restaurant."
Carl, I love your dishwasher cartoon.
Daniel, I agree with the floor dishwasher strategy! Works for me. My daughter won't allow it so I sneak time for dogs to lick plates. I'm anti-authoritarian. Not so hot on cleanliness as I was when she was growing to adulthood. I raised three children who are cleaner and neater than I am now ... they learned the lessons I taught them ... DAMN!
According to Larry, my son-in-law who is a computer professional, stated that the restaurant can purchase a device that generates noise on which the frequency the cell phone operates, thus blocking incoming and outgoing calls. He said they are not expensive or complicated, it is a one-time purchase.
I guess this is kind of food related: How to load a dishwasher (from The Oatmeal)
Carl, next time I'm up there, I'll have to stop in. Perry's sounds like my kind of place.
So, those addicted to their phones were the cause of the slowness, but they blamed the restaurant.
