To the Whirlpool CEO, Jeff Fettig, Dear Sir, My recent experience with your Whirlpool W10219708A Compact Front Loading Automatic Washer has been, how to put it delicately, something of a bit of a joke.

If you're lucky you have a larger military force on… Continue reading In Which a War is Waged

For the last four days I've been taking part in Block Week. The hellish University of experience of completing an entire course, that is four months worth of material,… Continue reading In Which Cats, Cats Cats, Cats? Ha ha! Cats!
