Question:  Replace or repair?

Question:  Replace or repair?

Our gas stove was made in '91.  This past week, the oven was acting a bit wonky, I mentioned that I didn't think that it was heating up properly/fast enough.  It all culminated tonight when we discovered that it was barely heating up the food we were reheating to higher than about 95°F after 20 minutes.  Looking into things, it appears as though the pilot light is lit just fine, but the oven burner itself won't light unless we turn it way the hell up to over 450°F, but turning it back down to the lower temp turns it off again.

Since the stove is so old at this point, I'm looking for opinions on whether or not we should just suck it up and replace the damned thing altogether right now, or have someone in to fix the bastard.?

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I’ve been up…

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! I've been up for about 35 minutes. The cats were really persistent in getting me up. So I got up, and fed them. As the coffee was brewing, I quickly did the dishes.

So, I'me getting ready to watch the parade in a few hours, then a quick listen to Alice's Restaurant on the way to our uncles place for the feast.

You guys have any plans??

Good morning. Sometimes you just have to…

Good morning. Sometimes you just have to drink your coffee with mint white chocolate creamer in a my little pony coffee mug.

Good morning!

Good morning!

What a day at work yesterday! Was not expecting to do any business. For example, the Monday before, when it was in the 30s and raining, I did like a total of $291 for the whole 10 hours that we were open. Pretty shitty day, huh? Well, I was kind of expecting the same thing, as it was raining like a bastard, but in the 50s/60s. But yesterday, yesterday was special. I did over $1000! W00t! 

Then, we went for Chinese after I got out of work at 8. Got the tired and true Beef and Broccoli. They gave us a 2015 calendar. 

What. A. Great. Day.

Happy Friday everyone! We made it! Who’s…

Happy Friday everyone! We made it! Who's ready for some black Friday sales?! Did everyone have a great (American) Thanksgiving? I sure ate a lot. But that's what you're supposed to do, amirite?

Let's talk deals. Anything good out there? There's a Christmas tree at the Home Depot for $129 that we're looking at. But we'll see.

Hap hap, Happy Friday everyone!?
