I don't think Pope Francis will have the answer. But who knows...maybe he does.
Question: What has happened to pot holders? You know those square (sometimes rectangle), thick, easily manipulated things that sat by the stove and permitted hot pots to be moved. I have conducted a wide search for someone who asked for them for Christmas. Pot holders are now mostly silicone, wormy things that are hard to hold and to grasp a pot with. Or they are flimsey decorative pieces of cloth sewn together.
Have I missed a recall? New safety whatsies? Anyone know?
And what about the candy cane situation... None to be had! Gone the way of real jelly beans.
