Just Another Day Ending In Y ...

In general having a regular job means that you know what day of the week it is (there are exceptions of course). We don't exactly have a regular job, so weekends are like any other day, with the exception that certain stores or offices are closed, because the people working there have regular jobs, and therefore have weekends off.

So, work it was for us today. Mike (our electrician) had let us know that he'd like to test fire our dish washer next time he comes by, which is why I spent today in and around the dish washer.

Now folks, a commercial dish washer is nothing like that dirt distributor you'll find in a residential kitchen. For one, it is heavy, because it is made from stainless steel. Next, it cleans and sanitizes (unlike a residential dish washer, a commercial dish washer actually sanitizes the dishes) dishes in one minute flat.

Most of the time I spent trying to remove a broken bolt, which eventually I succeeded in, but not without pain, and several runs to Lowe's. In the process, I got to look around the dish washer a little bit, and figure out its interior workings. This may sound dull to you, but I consider it important to know and understand our equipment, because by the time we open shop, if anything fails, I want to know how to fix it.

Off to the Misses. E! started cleaning up the old garden on the parking lot side. It is fertile ground, but the fencing around it is (or was) an eye sore, and there was some trash strewn around.
