Until things like this happen we don't realize how interconnected we are, one area to the next.It is such a tragic and sad event - and from what I've read, may have been a preventable situation. It is a sign that things are NOT OK, if you smell natural gas ... it's leaking. Most of us have gas to our homes, for hot water, if not more, and should we notice any natural gas odor - anywhere near our homes, do not let your service provider leave without discovering and fixing the cause! It may mean extra time and cost to the company, and even some service disruption, but any of that would be far less than what has happened.
That explosion was truly tragic and terrifying. My condolences to all affected by it--especially to those who lost loved ones.Jackie
I really need to thank you for the peach slicing demo. Not because I needed to learn to slice peaches but because it triggered an epiphany for me. Today, I got some wonderful Early Gold apples and decided to make pies for the freezer like I do every year. Apple pies in large quantity can be a little daunting for me because of the peeling, quartering, coring and slicing-especially since I do NOT like big chunks of apple but rather thin slices that are cut again crosswise.This time, thanks to the peach cutting demo, I peeled, then halved, then used a melon baller to remove the cores. Then I used your method to thinly slice the half apple, turned it and slice it into fourths and scooped it into the bowl. It took me about half as long to prep the apples. I've been making apple pies for about 50 years and this just occurred to me. VERY shallow learning curve. THANK YOU!!!!Jackie
