Why would a fridge have wifi? Why would I need or even want a fridge app? I don't want my fridge texting me.

Or a big ass LCD monitor in the front so you can see what's inside? I know what's inside. I put it there.

A big window? Why?

I like ice and water in front. I need no digital display to tell me it's ice and water or capacitive touch buttons to select which is which.... I'm happy with a simple switch. I can see where the switch is...

Crazy... You could drop 13k+ on a damn fridge... Does it make you a sammich? Jeebus.
.
Even with all those features, the ice and water thingies still get skanky if'n ya forget to clean 'em.
I hear you re: overly complicated appliances.
Is Sweetwater gonna call your fridge?

g mornings and afternoons !

Sunny, windy, and 59°F here.
Between the wind and the dryness (how does THAT work, after all the rain and snow?!?), the weather fairies are issuing a wildfire warning until 8 tonight.
we had the same warnings here . first time I've ever seen one issues . no fires occurred that I know of

now I'm thinking about windows on appliances . ovens and microwaves have them . toasters do if it's a toaster oven . coffee makers let you see the water level . blenders are blenders . washers and dryer have them .

so why not a refrigerator ? I can only speak for myself __ but I might keep it better organized if the contents were always in sight

Wife and I went to eye doc this morning over in a town half hour from our house... Long story short, with all the damn tech we have, if they can dilate the dog shit out of my eyes, they should be able to come up with an eye drop to make em normal... Damn... Both diabetic so has to be done to check eyes...

The town is probably 60k folks or more with a major us hwy going through to gulf coast....and full of dumbass drivers... So happy to leave the one hour eyeglass place wearing my new daaaark shades...even then it was like driving with a bit of fog and fine snow...surrounded by crazy people... Wife can see now

Been home a bit, quick nap so eyes are better... I hate getting eyes dilated...

Wife can see now too....maybe that'll cut down on the repeated 'what did that say on tv,...and damn menus at food joints... (She lost her glasses a while back and never replaced em...rather drive me nuts every day I guess)

Oh well... Will get the glasses from our specialist in a week or so, so she'll have two pair since going to the one-hour place after leaving specialist since she needed glasses NOW.... So I got some dark as hell Neo in Matrix looking prescription shades...way darker than my transition shades will get... Hell yeah!

Eyes are clearing....and gotta take my wife back to crazy town to meet daughter to shop for a dress for son's wedding in May... Daughter and family up at my lake house this week, an hour away so she's driving down..... I guess daughter doesn't trust me to help wife shop for clothes... I think Levi's are very fashionable... Wimmins... Geeze.

Just sharing my weird day.... Driving amongst crazies, dilated eyes.... Oh, and we had Mex food at Rodeo while waiting for glasses to be made... Tip: When you can't read a damn word on the menu from dilated eyes, just say 'Bring me two lunch specials and she'll have water, me diet Coke..'. They'll then tell you what the lunch specials actually are... I ain't quite as dumb as I look... ;)

Yeah I get a pair of dark polarized Ray-Bans in my prescription -for driving- as well as my regular transition glasses, when I get new prescriptions.
It’s like Jury Duty, or voting. A cyclical PITA. Getting dilated is part of my process too. I hate that.
Oh well: first world problems! Gotta grouse about sumpin’!

We moved just about two years ago and I found a really good eye doctor - youngen too.
Wanted to make an appointment and found she moved to Chicago.
Instead of giving me a new doctor they looked at my chart and they're sending me to the retinal clinic.
I have a macular hole - makes everything look like a circus mirror - I see double and have to close one eye to read the computer screen.
Oh well indeed: first world problems. HA!

Hope you can get it treated, bud! Eyes can spook you. With my retina tear and detach a while back, freaked me out seeing lines forming. (Bleeding in eye). Doc hit me with the Ray gun right then...

Good juju your way!

Thanks ehb - There is a 50/50 operation, but requires a week or two of holding your head down - that doesn't sound like a lot of fun - keep waiting for 'New & Improved' methods. We'll see what they say next month.
