Great post today. I enjoyed all the clips. As to a blender. Mine is 15 years old, so I have no idea what to recommend to you. You have. however, started me thinking about the need to research what I'll use to replace it when it goes. Mine, now, is an old Waring bar blender with two speeds. Have a great day. Blessings...Mary

Hey, I was introduced to a blog that I thought you might like:

If we're talking blenders, I thought I'd mention that I have a KitchenAid blender that I just repaired. The little rubber coupler that drives the blender's blade wore out, but it was an easy fix.

You should look into buying a blender from the Will it Blend guy?

It looks like he's blending an Ipad today.
