Random PSA

I’m still knitting on the body of my pullover (huge surprise), but in an effort to have something different this week, I have the following PSA.

Most of you probably know this, but some people might not, so I thought I’d just mention it.  If say, your ice maker goes out on your refrigerator, after being thankful that it’s January and not July, you can Google and find out the exact part number you need and there might even be a YouTube video explaining the installation for your refrigerator.  Then, if you feel comfortable doing the installation on your own, you can order the part from Amazon (which truly does have everything) and when it comes in you can fix your ice maker and then your wife will call you “Iceman” and “Dr. Freeze” because she’s so proud of you for fixing it and everyone can do a happy dance every time the ice crashes down into the bucket.

Also, I always figure that it costs $100 to get a repairman out to the house and that’s before parts and labor.  The ice maker from Amazon cost us $72!

(Obviously, if you’re not comfortable with the specific repair and/or doing it wrong could result in bodily injury or blowing up your own house, you might want to go ahead and call the repairman.  Remember, if you blow up your house, you’ve blown up your yarn stash too.  Think these things through.)

Oh, and one last thing, yesterday Pioneer Woman posted a recipe for Tomato Soup with Parmesan Croutons on her blog and I made it last night.  Super easy and super yum!

Thanks for this info. I tried it yesterday when our garbage disposal went on the blink. I found a You Tube demo showing exactly what to do. It worked. WHAT DID WE DO BEFORE THE INTERNET?????
