Response to ProfessorGAC (Reply #37)

40. My experience was nearly forty five years ago

Long before the spark ignited technology was introduced to home appliances.

And that stove was much older than that. When my roommate moved into that rental house, there was no stove in the kitchen. He found that one in the backyard, brought it in and with the help of friends cleaned it up. Mostly it worked, but I never used it again - made do with the hot plate and toaster over I had used in the dorm.

I already had a nervousness about fire - as a child I had gotten third degree burns on one foot. Between that and the stove incident I want no fires in my house!
