All the fuss about this cord! it makes you tired..but I've got good news to report...$1.06 saved the day for now..that's all a roll of Vinyl electrical tape cost and about 1 hr of my time to wind it on the cord...Geez, when I started I thought just a few spots, ugh! it ended up being the whole cord that was frayed and fraying all over..E.G. offered to eliminate my stress, but I'm still canning ( isn't that wonderful to have something to can :o) and couldn't do without the Champion cord as yet!  
This "Champion" has been a champion for me ..all these years I've had her ..since Jan.1973  ...too bad the company can't replace the cord..it's one that doesn't have the ground ( that's the one with  a prong sticking out besides the two holes). Do a close up and you will see the date on the receipt..and what I paid for it then :o)..today it's almost tripled. I did good to wrap the cord ...:o) that's being real fugal. ( Lucky for Cecil, I was ready to buy a new one :o). Once you have one, you won't be without it.


By the way..had a Dr's appointment today, and the Dr was smiling at the good results I have with my B/S ...plus a lost a  couple of pounds :o). (the harvesting worked the skin off me :o)  


Update: The day ended up being a good one, even though the car wouldn't start this morning :o(  Two neighbors to the rescue then on to the Dr's ...We hadn't moved the car in two days ..hope that's the only reason..Cecil is going to have the battery checked to make sure..(Always something )

Oh good, you got your cord fixed enough to use it again. Even better is that good news from the Dr.'s visit! Glad to hear it, Ginny! :-)

I was born in February of 1973. It's nice to know that was a good year for hardworking and reliable stuff.

Jody,

Glad to hear that cobbler doesn't affect your blood sugar badly! Good old electrician's tape - where would we be without it?

Ladydi I found out the secret ..eat that cobbler early in the day ( After lunch :o). and without that electrical tape I'd be up the creek without an oar :o)
