Whistle Stop


Finally collected the booty from the jackpot. Though we missed the jackpot iitself . Read the comments to know what I am talking about.

Not really worth the wait and sounded much better as 54 thousand ( split by 4 participants)

Anyway gifts - anything free for that matter- should not be judged.

But a milk cooker- in this zamaana??

Didn't make much sense, till I read your post on dry ice.
I knew it too, but am a Chem graduate, my Prof would flog me if I didn't know this! Lol

Gift that milk cooker for an acquaintance's wedding/housewarming, if you have no use for it.

Hey, Congrats. When was your episode on air?

ps: me yet another kaakka..not from MICA..

Whoever named it milk cooker? Probably they must have looked at three choices- milk heater (sounds like an elecrtrical gadget), milk boiler (sounds like the copper gadget in our villages to heat water). Since it lets off steam it became a cooker!

Hey I know someone your age who does actually use one :)
Congrats!

The Inquisitive Akka said...

Oh and I do know what dry ice is :) Was using it last week it to get rid of some organic solvents :)

The Inquisitive Akka said...

I've even managed to get a cold burn with dry ice-its rather painful.
And I shall shut up now :)

I really am surprised ! with a milk cooker - u can just keep milk for boiling and forget about it. Otehrwise how many of us have just left it in the kitchen and got preoccupied on a mobile call and lost it all. This is really a useful thing for women!!

I'm sort of a yuppie. I make myself a yummy latte every morning, and love to boil my milk. It boils over almost every morning. I'd gladly accept your milk cooker as a wedding gift or any other gift.

On a side note, with all the preoccupations on hormones in milk, I do believe that boiling milk will inactivate those.... another good reason to drink boiled milk and prevent osteoporosis!
