You are the limit!    PUT IT ON!

(To be honest, Having followed your cooking for all these months, I was about to ask you myself.)

I will cook for you with or without a ring!

As someone recently pointed out, I am very much a "glass half empty" kind of guy.   That being said, occasionally there is a beam of joy in the misery that is my life.   Today,it was coming home a

It is a perfect day in Paris too. Had a lovely walk around the 9th this morning, and will soon be going to meet a friend for lunch, it will be nice to eat outside.

Because of some holiday, the subway is very empty today.

No diamond ring but almost at brilliant, husband and I scoured our 30 year old Viking range this morning.    Sure, it's been wiped down every night, but obviously not to joethefoddie's standards.    It was, what can I say, a grease pit.  

We soaked the enameled stovetop panels in ammonia overnight, hosed them down and hand-polished them.   Like a brand new range!

I told husband that from now on we were having only microwaved dinners.     If you've been invited for dinner here, be forewarned.

When I was moving out of my last house and cleaning the Chambers range that I was leaving behind, I lifted up the top to clean up any detritus that had fallen through cracks. I found not only detritus, but a 100plus-year-old family heirloom bloodstone ring that I thought was long lost, never to be found. That was a happy cleaning day for me.

8 years ago my wife gave our baby daughter her watch to play with to appease her on a long car ride. Somehow it disappeared, we assumed fell out in the garage.  Yesterday we sold the car and while cleaning out every nook and cranny, mixed in with the crushed Cheerios, raisins, and other years of snack detritus in various seatbelt wells....the watch!

Congratulations @small h! Very exciting news.

Thanks! If anyone's trying to come up with wedding present ideas, advice on a thorough stove cleaning would be welcome, and it seems like this is the place to ask about that.

I hate to be serious, but here's the thing:  even after more than 20 years, you will not be able to believe what a difference [for the better] it makes to be married.  It's immense.)

I'm sure that's true. For starters, it's a lot harder to wriggle out of. We're domestic partners now, but I think you can dissolve that by spitting into your palms and shaking hands. Then again, we've jointly owned real estate for some time, and that's a pretty solid bond.
