I also turn off the power to my AV gear when going away. Living near the top of a hill, gear has blown out during storms. I also have a surge protection system on my main AC panel.

I haven't looked but I suspect the speed selector is a solid state unit not a switch tapped motor and good legal practice is to include the instruction.

Do you have smoke detectors, fire extinguishers, GFCIs and arc interrupting circuit breakers at home?

Most of these are required by code almost everywhere. My nose has been faster and more sensitive than a smoke detector on several occasions, even in deep sleep.

33# of tomatoes cooked down to sauce and canned in 15 pts. What a bunch of work for a few jars of tomatoes.

I will check the NYTimes archives to unearth the verb they used.

Speaking of blenders -- me and 'mamselle still have the Oster blender we got as a wedding present 45+ years ago -- was used to make baby food -- now the babies have babies!

It still makes great Hollandaise.

New York Times, November 6, 1985:

Teressa Bellissimo, who invented the Buffalo-style chicken wings that won international culinary respect and fame for her hometown, died Monday. She was 84 years old. Mrs. Bellissimo died in her apartment above Frank and Teressa's Anchor Bar and Restaurant on Main Street, which she and her late husband, Frank, opened in 1940.

It was there, according to Mrs. Bellissimo's son, Dominic, that the Buffalo chicken wing was born, shortly before midnight one Friday in 1964.

''The true story is that I was tending bar, and a bunch of my friends were drinking,'' Mr. Bellissimo, who now operates the restaurant, said yesterday. ''My mother, God rest her soul, was in the kitchen. I said to my father, 'Let's have some hors d'oeuvres.' Dad said: 'They're all Catholic boys. They don't eat meat on Friday.' ''

'Come Up With Something

Dominic reminded his father that it would soon be Saturday. And, he recalled, ''Dad told mother to come up with something.''

Mrs. Bellissimo took some chicken wings, deep-fried them, doused them with hot sauce and served them with blue-cheese dressing and celery. The men at the bar were rapturous. ''They said, 'Oh, my God, can we come back next Saturday and have the same thing?' '' Mr. Bellissimo said.

Jack, I dare say it makes for a good story for the family but to say someone invented the buffalo style wing is taking liberties.

Cal,

I am pretty sure chicken wings were invented by chickens. But deep frying them and coating with hot sauce was probably done elsewhere, putting them on the menu, they certainly could have been the first.
