How do you know its time to replace your car, your blender or your underwear? Some simple rules apply.
- You are prepared and don’t care about the item breaking down just when you need it. (Ask how that turned out with my stove on a Thanksgiving Day with a turkey to cook!)
- You can’t sell it for enough to make it worthwhile. (What is worthwhile?)
- Everything seems to be working OK. (i.e.- the elastic is holding!)
- It’s paid for.
- You have taken good care of the item and kept it up to date, honored the warranty.
I just spoke at a campground that was invested by mosquitoes. The organizer wanted us outside. I braced myself for lots of squishing as I delivered my message. However, we all prayed the place bug-free and the leader helped God out by thoughtfully lighting several bug deterrent candles and placing them on each table. What a difference it made to both us and to the bugs. Not one of them lost their lives during my message.
Today the TV closed caption declared cremini mushrooms to be criminal mushrooms. And I wasn’t even watching a murder mystery! Wow, I’ve been eating those mushrooms too! Are they safe? Should I be afraid?
