Remember Me

Telegraph Avenue, Berkeley, and Elsinore Castle, Denmark, meet as a former sixties radical searches for answers to troubling issues of international, racial and sexual politics of her formative years. She takes the reader right into the cauldron of street battles and bedroom battles as her characters fight their way through the turbulent years of l969 and l970. And for insight, they look not to Mao's Little Red Book but to the Elizabethan wisdom and confusion of Shakespeare's Hamlet. This novel is no story of mind-bending drugs or hippie love. Rather it is a raw look at a place and time where young people thought they could wake up an indifferent world. Tragedy, heartbreak, even horror, and a dose of humor lead in the end to hope both for the middle-aged writer and the characters she creates to relive and understand a mere moment, but a significant moment, in history.

Most of the commercial detergents (for restaurants, hospitals, and other institutions) still contain phosphates. They are available from janitorial and other supply houses, but you usually have to buy a full case, which can be expensive.

Hi, Suze.

Yes I have heard about the Lemonade or Tang mix to clean dishwashers. Just asked a repairman about the Tang and he said it was good but not as good as the the dishwasher cleaner by Finish. My problem is I can't find the Finish at our local Krogers...so much head out to Walmart or Meijers. We have a lot of rust from our water. Need to use CLR or Iron out for that, I suppose. We have well H2O without a softner...it's a mess!

Hi, Marilyn.

Yes, we use white vinegar sometimes. I usually works pretty good. Might try cleaning the dishwasher without dishes and then add some to the rinse cycle.

@MamaSylvia

Amazon.com is a great source for citric acid. Bought in quantity, it's quite inexpensive. Bought as SOUR SALT in the kosher section of supermarkets, it's fairly costly.

@MamaSylvia

Got any pots or pans with heavily crusted food / grease? Soak them overnight in hot water with some of the washing powder and borax ... a few tablespoons each. If needed, scrub with a Scotchbrite.

In reply to an earlier post on Jun 14, 2012 2:36:15 PM PDT
Just using the citric acid doesn't work; it doesn't dissolve properly.

I wonder whether a mixture of the citric acid with powder lemonade might be worth a shot If the combination is well mixed maybe the clumping would not occur.

Thanks for that offer MamaSylvia - I'll email you my email address if you wouldn't mind doing that. That would be great!

Or just soak them for a little bit in a dab of ammonia mixed with hot water. Ammonia will even take the baked on brown coating off your cookie sheets that have been well used.

I have to give myself shots. I just recently came off a round of weekly, this month will be two times, then once a month until she gives me the test to see if it brings my levels back up to normal.

@Rahoo Tigaroo and Sunshine,
How nice of you to remember about my esophogram. Wasn't as bad as I thought it would be but with all the advancement we have made in the medical industry you would think that they could make that Barium crap taste just a teenie bit better. I was in such a hurry to get rid of the blasted stuff that I drank down big gulpfuls. Wouldn't you know that I drank it all and they weren't done with the tests so I had to drink another glass! Should have the results sometime Monday. Let the waiting begin...

@Marilyn - Doing the HappyCamper Dance for you!!!! Keep in mind that is something I only do in private ;-)

@Becky (beckygardens)

Just fill the detergent cup with citric acid and run a cycle with no dishes. You'll be amazed at the difference!

Using citric acid as a rinse agent will keep your dishwasher clean.

Sunshine says:
Happy Camper - thanks for the update! Sad that they tricked you in to the 2nd glass!

and may the waiting not go by slowly - hopefully a nice book will help pass the time -

PIG ROASTS!! While we live near Chicago there are quite a few pig roasts (not heard the term pig picking, but that's exactly what happens!) Our Boy Scout Troop used to have a pig roast at the end of the school year - and of course it was fun when my Aunt decided to have a pig roast after she got married for the 2nd time!

When I started using lemnshine all the time, the dishwasher came clean even with horrendous water.

Since I had an empty LemniShine container after the last load, I am experimenting with a 50/50 mix of citric acid and kosher salt.

I'll let you know in the coming days what happens.

Re using powdered lemonade, if you check the ingredients you will see that the primary ingredient is actually citric acid - http://www.wegmans.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplay?productId=366329&storeId=10052&langId=-1

Citric acid is quite often used to provide a "lemon" flavor.

Hey David,
Some of us still eat squirrel regularly during the season. No offense meant or taken, just laughing that some folk think we've quit that now that people are "civilized".

Check out the Road Kill Festival Sept 29, 2012 in Marlington, WV. It's been featured on The Food Network, The Travel Channel, Discovery. It's so fun. You get to taste anything you're willing, at no cost, then you can buy a ticket to vote on your favorites. Of course, there's music and crafts, ect. But the great thing is all the "different" food.

Join us there this year.

Okay ... I just posted my Boston Cream Pie recipe on this website:

@OregonDreamer

Vinegar sometimes helps. Citric acid works better, all the time.

The only thing that makes the powdered lemonade (or Kool-Aid) work is the citric acid it contains.

If the citric acid is clumped, the container may have been soaked in water.

@Nospin

Add it to water, and you'll have a sour, salty drink!

Don't waste your kosher salt. It will not help. Use the citric acid by itself.
