No kidding!

My salt grinder has some great kitchen tips. It says "great on chicken, beef, pork, vegetables & salads." I had no idea!

What I do know is that Tony started back to work this week (no students yet, just meetings), and I was not exactly prepared. It just snuck up on me. So here we go again. Wish me luck, because this year is going to be crazy. Now if I could just figure out a way to get some at-home work designing salt shaker labels...

Luck! Although you won't really need it.

And who knew???? I mean, other than everyone. It's like the warning labels not blowdry your hair while you're in the bathtub.

So that’s what salt is for! Honestly, if they are going to go to the trouble, couldn’t they offer something useful? ‘Salt meat and chicken before cooking; do not salt eggs until cooked to avoid rubbery texture.’ On the other hand, I wonder if we are so bombarded with helpful advice that we just disregard it all – I mean, really, who could smoke if they took the warnings seriously? I saw a woman interviewed on the television news after the first Mattel recall and she said, “Well, some of our toys are on the recall list for lead paint, but my kids rarely put things in their mouths so I’m not that worried about it and I’m going to let them keep playing with the toys.” Scary. Maybe she’s the person your salt label was meant for, since she is so clearly clueless. Lead recalls should probably include information about the brain damage lead exposure causes.

And yes, the fall/winter changes are looming. It is pitch dark now when I leave for work. Soak in the sunshine (both literal and figurative) while you can!

That's handy. Up till now I'd just been standing around, staring blankly at my salt shaker.
I still can't run for president: I'm Canadian. But I think I'd be an AWESOME president. Free salt for all!
