I don't think that my husband will buy me a Dr. Pepper any time soon. We went for a drive up to Summerland yesterday, he had to pick up brochures for the Learning Center. I was thirsty so when we got gas in Penticton he bought me a Dr. Pepper. A big Dr. Pepper. At least one litre. We hardly ever have pop. Well, either it was his inspiring company, or the sugary pop, but I just felt plumb silly. Goofy. Besides making me burp, which in turn makes me hiccup and giggle by the time we arrived at Summerland I was a mess. A happy sappy mess and it took me an hour to wind down. It was a great destresser! Next time, I can almost gaurantee I will be getting coffee or water to slake my thirst.
Speaking of pop - I met my new friend Becky, recently and she has given me a recipe she says is "Top Drawer" - and it involves pop. I simply HAVE to try it out - but I would use Dr. Pepper if I am allowed to have one again.

BARB'S HANDY TIP #103
Clean Dish Rack
Some of us are archaic and actually do dishes BY HAND... a friend (boy I have HELPFUL friends, hey?) she gave me a great tip. When you fill up your sink to do dishes, before you actually put any dishes in the clean water, put your dishrack into the water and give it a good cleaning and dry it. This way, it won't have build up on it, even if you have hard mineral water, like we do here.
