An email from good friend John Moler in Rockville bears repeating. ,John writes that the heating unit in their dryer went out and they had to replace it. When the repairman came, he pulled out the lint filter. "We always clean the lint from the filter after every load of clothes. He told us that he wanted to show us something. He took the filter to the sink and ran hot water all over it. The hot water just lay on top of the mesh...it didn't go through at all. The repairman told us that dD'er sheets cause a film over that mesh and that's what burns out the heating unit. You can't see the film but it's there. He said the best way to keep your dryer working for a very long time (and to keep your electric bill lower) is to take that filter out and wash it with hot soapy water and an old toothbrush (or other brush) at least eyeD" six months. He said that makes the life of the dry- er at least twice as long. How about that? ]_,earn something new ever)." day. John adds: After cleaning the filter be sure that the water gushes through the mesh, with no puddling at all; then you'll know your filter is clean. On a Personal Note February was a month of cel- ebrations in our family'. Two birthdays, an anniversary" and an important announcement. We had a surprise anniver- saD' party for Jack and Bren- da Hooper, who were married for 25 years on February 2:3. Their daughter, Emily, A1 and I and friend Tracy Clarke, had fun planning the surprise. And it worked, they were really sur- prised and pleased. (I think the planners were even more elat- ed that the surprise came of~) Jack and Brenda also had the birthdays, Jack on Febru- ary 22 and Brenda on FebruaD" 25. We had another family get together for them with snacks, beverages, pizza, ice cream cake and gifts. The important announce. ment concerns our son Steve and Valerie Hooper on Long Is- land. Valerie's daughter (our step-granddaughter) is having twins. And she and her hus- band had just begun adoption proceedings for 10-year-old Genny. Their family is growing fast. Couldn't help passing on all this stuff, it's all good news, don't you agree? Question Why did the Pilgrims pants keep falling down? Because they wore their belt buckles on their hats. The Recipe Corner Just in time for St. Patrick's Day, here's a recipe for a crock pot Irish dinner. Slow Cooker Corned Beef and Cabbage 4 cups hot water; 2 Tbsp. ci- der vinegar; 2 Tbsp. sugar; 1/2 teas. freshly ground pepper; 1 large or two medium onions, cut into wedges; 1 three pound corned beef round or bris- ket, packaged with spices; 8 small white or yellow potatoes, scrubbed and cut into quarters; 1 head of green cabbage (about 1 1/2 pounds), cored and cut into 10 wedges. In a 6-quart electric slow cooker combine the water, vin- egar, sugar, pepper and onions, mixing well. Place the corned beef in the mixture. Scatter the potatoes over the top and along the sides. Cover and cook on the High setting 4 hours. Remove the lid and scatter the cabbage wedges over the top. Cover and contin- ue cooking on high for 3-4 more hours, until the beef is tender, To serve, carve the beef into slices and sen, e with the cab- bage and potatoes, with some of the cooking liquid spooned on top. Add some crusty bread, mustard and horseradish on the side. Makes 6-8 servings.
