    I received my first Crock Pot when I was 18 1/2. Remember the round ones that had the metal exterior with the stonewear interior that that did not come apart, and the heating elements were around the sides of the crock pot between the metal and interior? A pain to wash because it could not be immersed in water!

    A couple years later I received a Rival slow cooker. It was a rectangular metal pan with a nonstick interior. The heating element was a nonstick very shallow pan like thing similar to a nonstick griddle. Eggs or toasted cheese or hamburgers or bacon or sausage could be made on it.

    Then about 10 years ago I received one of the large oval Crock Pots in which the stonewear crock could be completely removed from the decorative exterior which housed the heating elements. The Crock was easy to clean because it could be fully immersed in water.

    I thought a Crock Pot and a slow cooker were different small appliances up until about a year ago. Turns out that a Crock Pot *is* a slow cooker, and that "Crock Pot" was the name brand years ago! I thought the difference was in the shape and had to do with what material the pot portion was made of! Now that Crock Pots have became popular again and with access to Google and looking up recipes, I discovered the difference/similarities.


    Shoes with socks

    Cotton or wool socks or a man made blend?

    Real tree! Definitely. And cut from the forest, not bought from the tree lot! Even with all the lumps and flaws and sap and needles, there's nothing like it!

    And the permit from the forest service only costs 8 bucks!

    Super bright LED Christmas lights or good old fashioned incandescents?

    I like the idea of an altar of some kind, even if only for the pure psychological implications of it: reminding yourself in creative, symbolic ways of things that are important to you. If nativity does that for someone, I vote nativity. Mine looks a little different :)

    Your ideal Christmas: all-out tinsel-tacular, or WTF -- why the fuss?

    Ideally, a beautifully decorated home ( but I just don't have the energy or inspiration to so anymore)

    The shopping is done and gifts wrapped or are you a frantic last minute shopper?

    If ordering pizza to be delivered counts, then eating out.


    Would you rather go out on New Year's eve or stay home?

    Now, hot tea.

    When drinking something hot, do you hold the cup to warm your hands or sit the cup near by?
