I just had the fire alarm go off!

I was browning a roast, and the exhaust fan just does not draw, the smoke was going in front not through the filters.. I hate this over the range microwave exhaust fan by Whirlpool!

my toaster used to treat me like a goddess giving me burnt offerings and then the trumpeters would let me know how much I was loved.

Let me introduce myself.

I spend more time reading than posting. And I love to see items that make me smile.
I have been know to post a joke or two. I also post my bad photos, which have been improving thanks to the wonderful people here.
I do not claim to be an expert at anything, but I do put in my 2¢. And I make many typing errors.
I follow many different people, in many different fields. Most do not follow me, and I am not offended by this. After all I will never claim to be an expert.
I am a human who makes many errors, that happens to sell books, jewelry and whatnot online.

I am WhatnotShops and WhatnotGems on Twitter and at present run 3 online stores. While attempting to establish a brand I easily get distracted by conversations.

My life:  Primary care giver and online retailer.
