We bought a range today, since the old one blew out parts last week that couldn’t be replaced (it’s pretty old). The new one comes with a feature called “Certified Sabbath Mode.”


Apparently this mode means that we can turn it on Friday night and leave it on all Saturday to keep food warm so that we don’t violate the Sabbath by working. Huh. Shame we’re not Jewish.

Speaking of the Sabbath, how did we ever shift it from Saturday to Sunday? Was it really a pagan thing that was absorbed by the Catholic church 1,500 years ago?

These are the things that keep me up at night. If anything kept me up, that is.
