Sylvia was asking about alternative cooking to save on electric. Consider an air fryer. You can cook anything in it that you cook in an oven. It is faster cooking and doesn’t heat up the kitchen. You can even bake cakes in it. I have one and I love using it. It makes things crispy with little or no oil.

Last night I couldn't pull up the internet when it was time to do the newsletter. Called and the message on Suddenlink that my section of town did not have internet. (I knew that, and that is why I was calling. LOL) The internet was not up when I went to bed at 10:00pm so the newsletter was not sent out.

Ditto still loves his recipe cookbook box until Little One got a bigger box.Ditto now likes the bigger box and Little One is stuck with the smaller box. Ditto thinks anything new or bigger must be his.

Little One is helping with the newsletter this evening. He first put his tail on the keyboard and waved it around so I couldn't see the keys. Next he put his chin on the keyboard and I got a whole page of **** when I turned around to answer the phone. Now he has his head under the monitor looking at me with sad eyes. I am assuming that I haven't given him enough attention today. I took a picture of him helping tonight.
