Can't say much.

Feelin' pretty cruddy!

So, here's a helpful (?) hint ...

Don't put your grease down the garbage disposal.
It just isn't a good idea because grease can solidify and block the plumbing. It can stay in the pipes and become rancid. When your pipes get messed up ya gotta call the plumber, which always happens on a weekend and y'all always end up spendin' double. So, if you wanna get rid of you grease, pour grease into a metal or glass container and place in the trash.
In most cities a lid is required on a container holding liquid grease. Containers that contain solid grease do not need a lid.
So, there you go, just in case you were wonderin' ...

Blessings ...

Yes mother! LMAO Are you speaking from experience or did you just read up! LMAO

I know, I know but... I always forget! If I do I do try to run a BUNCH of soap down it so it doesn't stick... I have no idea if this really works- someone told me to do that in an immegancy once but it makes me feel better and it keeps Big J from getting to miffed at me! LMAO

Hope you feel better! I know that tip but still I do it sometimes. Usually I don't. Does it help to run hot water for a long time afterwards? You guys still have snow up there? M was grouching the other day about how we never get any snow. It's good though b/c the city REALLY freaks out. BTW, the virtual model thingy was pretty neat. :) Robin

Yikes, learned this one the hard way myself. Except I exacerbated the problem by scrubbing out my filthy grill and dumping the gunk down the drain (I live in an apartment, so my options were limited). I am a moron.

That is suppose to be EMERGENCY... I have no idea what "immegancy" is! LMAO

Hope you are feeling better... I have the crude also right now- lucky me the in-laws are here... I'm lucky right? sigh- not so much! LOL

T - I don't think that the soap does any good. but it does make me feel better too. also throwin' some orange peels down there, won't the acid *cut* the grease? Makes sense to me. I'll forgive you the spelling error :) In-laws still there?
Kari - Mr. Farmer is pretty handy. He took care of it .. that's what happens when you let the kids cook.
Princess - Stick around, you'll learn a ton :)
PC - they (the plumbers)say water (no matter how hot) does not help - but maybe that is just job secirity for them. Snows finally all gone, although Mr. Farmer said there is another storm comin' - not sure if he is joking or not, I can't bare to look at the weather reports.
TSS - Ug, not a pretty picture. I hate cleaning the oven. Blech!
