I always loved Twinkies.....then someone told me they kinda "last" forever, that's when I stopped eating them. xo

I shall remember to keep calm while I'm toasting stuff this week! What I never knew about toasters would obviously fill a book.

I really, really hope you will market tea cosies with smart-arse comments on them Cathy. There is a niche, just waiting, and only you can fill it.

Love the toaster cover, you're so clever. I remember as a child when my mother made toast in the broiler oven and had no clue what a bagel was! Does that show my age?? I was very very young!!LOL.
