I am busy getting ready for my daughter-in-law’s birthday dinner. I have been baking, cooking and decorating for three days. The dishwasher is running for the second time today and will have another load to wash after dinner.

It has been making a funny noise. Have you ever tried to describe a noise an appliance is making to a repairman? It is frustrating and a little embarrassing. I solved that dilemma by making a movie of the appliance making the noise on my camera. When the repairman arrived, I played my 30 second video.
