It’s Clean Out Your Refrigerator Day!

November 15, 2018

Beware! This could happen to you.

You open your refrigerator and your olfactory sensory neurons are suddenly attacked by a horrendous smell. Your refrigerator stinks! It’s time to clean it out.

Pull out those veggie, fruit, and cheese drawers. Dump and examine the contents. Who knows what you may find – petrified peas, a hairy strawberry, moldy cheese. And what’s on those overcrowded refrigerator shelves? Leftover Chinese takeout from last month, a piece of not-so-fresh fish you forgot to fry, chunky milk? Take it out. Get rid of that grub and scrub-a-dub-dub! Warm soapy water and a fresh sponge will clean up those spills in no time. And don’t forget to replace that two-year-old box of baking soda that supposed to keep your refrigerator smelling clean. Now that your refrigerator sparkles and you have received the Good Housekeeping Award, give yourself a pat on the back, and quick – empty out the garbage!


Speaking of stinky refrigerators, check out these two books by Josh Funk. Smells like a good deal.

Happy Clean Out Your Refrigerator Day!

“The world’s favorite season is the spring. All things seem possible in May.”      – Edwin Way Teale


It’s the lusty month of May, or so it’s been said or sung. May first is May Day, Loyalty Day, Mother Goose Day, Save the Rhino Day, Hawaiian Lei Day, Space Day, Law Day, Amtrak Day, and that’s just the beginning of a long list of special days in May. One would think with all this fodder I would be able to write a fantastic post for today. Alas, I cannot.

May is a polite word. Therefore, I think it is appropriate for me to write a polite explanation for this brief post.

To whom it may concern:

May I politely say that try as I may, my brain cannot conjure up a brilliant blog for this first day of May. Today I will let the chips fall where they may and hope my steadfast readers can forgive me for having such a devil-may-care attitude. Be that as it may, you may be sure that I may live to write another day, and next Thursday’s post will be up to par once again.

May the Force be with you,

C.S. Ogren
