    I've had Harry and David gift boxes, and they are quite good.

    Well I survived!

    Thanks for all the tips. I ended up freezing some wet dishtowels...that worked really well. My company also provided a bus with a/c that we could get on during our stopovers. That was what really made a difference.

    By the way--has anyone ever heard 800 girls walking-wearing flip-flops? I have. There were a few rebels wearing tennis shoes... And they all were wearing dresses (and carrying their heels) all these girls were "rushing" the greek houses. By the end of the day everyone was tired/hot. It only got up to 104. But I made it home, took over the recliner and laptop, got a huge glass of ice water, doggies at my feet. I'm happy.

    And exactly what is wrong with self-indulgent hedonism?? I think it definitely has its place in a rough and trying world!

    I wanted to send her some good SC peaches, but the Easter freeze ruined most of this year's peach crop, so sending peaches was more expensive than sending gold. I think she'll like the fruit bouquet. It's different and I'm sure a welcome departure from the prepared meals that are delivered.
    Thanks everyone for the suggestions. My dad got a Harry and David gift box one time and I had forgotten how wonderful it was. Must remember that for next time.
    There is a GREAT homemade candy company here in Greenville, but they don't ship until Oct. because of the heat and this had to go to Florida, so chocolates were out. But the edible bouquet company is a chain, so it will be coming from the store in her town.


    Livin4reality, glad you survived the heat on the first day.

    Slide-in range/stove question

    Does anyone have a slide-in range/oven and if so, do you like it? I know they're more expensive than regular ovens but don't really know what the "slide in" aspect is all about...Thanks!

    Re: FORT Koffee Klatch

    is 'slide in' the same as a built in Lois??? I have a built-in wall oven and I love it! No more bending or stooping!
    The only thing I don't like about my wall oven is that the door opens out and down.. if I had been the one installing it I would have chosen an oven with a door that opened to the side, making cleaning easier. My husband tells me that a side opening door may lead to burns (if the door swung back and touched you) but if you had something in there and you were checking it, you'd pull the rack out so that just shows you how much hubbby cooks with the oven
    his forte is the grill of course!

    nevermind it's not the same I just looked them up. I saw a stainless steel one that was just gorgeous!

    Duxxy-Sometimes the oven door just lifts right off. You could try it on yours. Just open the door about a 1/4 of a way and give it a little tug.

    Re: FORT Koffee Klatch

    yep - mine lifts off too. It's a real pain to put something heavy into the oven like a turkey or roast because it's above waist height and you have to heft it in and then stretch 2ft over hot door to put it in. Just a flaw in design IMO.

    Our temperature has gone from 105 degrees to 74 degrees today, thanks to a couple of storms. Unbelievable.
