RANT to the hinged lids on condiment bottles that become detached long before the contents have been used up. Having to fish a plastic lid out of a hot pan or off a burner while cooking is not my idea of fun.

RAVE to Washington State for having vote-by-mail. Given voter suppression problems in Georgia and other states, I am thankful for our state’s well-established experience running mail-in elections. It gives me plenty of time to research and make my choices. The prepaid postage makes it easy to return by mail, or I can bring to a ballot drop box. Hopefully, Washington’s experience will help reassure other states who question whether the process is safe. This November is an extremely important election! Rave to those who exercise their constitutional right to vote!
