Okay. Go. Man. I am from way out I and the station in the news radio WR VA home and through the shop. This is the home showed me your humble improvement guru. Ritchie McKay and I got some of it back not all of it most Zach catalyst sound on that end. It sounds fine better than average better than last week over yet know you guys the effort hold your at all and ram truck commercials as a it was bad it hasn't gotten any better and that's what's really killing me. I'm still coughing at its you know grasping the you have the flu no I don't have the flu it's this thing. And I'd get it. Every year didn't get last year I'll admit but every year around February and in late September I get this thing in my head goes down into my throat. And the only difference this year is it hasn't looked in my chest. Usually I and pollute the dying. But not this year I'm OK with that 3451140. Is a phone number give us a call if you have a home at Purdue question queer conundrum riddle. I got a ton of stuff to talk about. Been merging the kitchen. And I know that sounds weird why would that be a thing. Why would that be on your home improvement list Richard because it's a bigger deal. Many might actually think and I found a lot of people up with it you know as working with. Terry Martin from enhance for a while. Quite understand the way the ins and out of a new sponsor or see how they were working I like Terry's a friend of mine so. You know how how I work with yet didn't have anything better to do with the time. Going to see how it worked and you don't let people neglect their kitchen like nothing I've ever seen. Of all the rooms in your house. The kitchen has to be the most neglected. It's just becomes a catchall. And so you know it took a couple of days to merge to complete kitchens. Together. And what it in I'd read an article about this recently I was like he he was talking about how to organize your kitchen how to get things straight. And eyes I thought most of it was BS until I started doing it and then I said are right so that article wasn't so far out there. So outward definitely gonna talk about kitchens kitchen safety. My major disappointment in a brand new set of knives. That I was so excited about. I should breaks out of box it's got a brand new set of of knives it's got the little man that's doing the like to walk like an Egyptian thing their high quality set. And major disappointment on my hand because remember. I'm the one that does all the cooking. We made a deal. I cook she cleans up afterwards. And I'll say this you know I have been trying to have been talking Issac it's so nice talking to young people. And I've been I've figured it's just her dating when I was what fifteen or sixteen years old. And I'm 45 now never. Have I know and any woman that cooks. And that's fine but doesn't bother me a bit I like to cook that's my creative outlet. But. You know so it has to be a given takes a one person got numbers of cleats that that makes sense right. So we're gonna talk about kitchens absolutely looking at though whether we got rain coming in. And a lot of it. A massive. Amount we're expecting. Almost I think it's like one point 65 inches in the next week which is a lot of rain for us and there's no place where to go. It's not like the plants are sucking it up that I will say this. Those people that are current thinking other. Was the groundhog saw it's 64 weeks where I have been stopped that. Seriously. Did what is it with you and col. It's better than that utility couple is that even how is that a thing. Because it's the age old argument it's you can put more layers on and I don't like despite the heat makes people's lives. So you're you your offended by people's perspiration as what you say no enough people's Miami bureau. Are you like if you do you have like offensive levels of sweat out really it's. And those comforts. See it I'm I'm of the theory one you can always take clothes off. All right but. Go ahead but there's there's a limits you can continue trailers you can only take so much I can sit here in my boxers and do a radio show. Okay but we're in climate controlled terrain you're right but. You know that that. Create tactical. I'll say this the having worked construction. Most of my life. I would much rather be sweating outside and freezing outside. And for people that work outside it eat it's better to be hot than it is to be cold and that's just a fact. I mean I can eat even the hottest I've ever dealt with was what four Summers ago I was a 106. And sure regularly worked fifteen minutes I was on a roof I'd worked fifteen on ten minutes off I dropped. 35 pounds that summer. This winter I'm actually gaining weight what. So I'd rather lose weight and gave way right. I suppose man and of the point taken to factor in the humidity and all that stuff so tell you I was really where violence in LA I was Perez and Diana thanks how oddities but that he is so much better. There in the years just gains of caveman community. Here will our dear friend do here and program director Erin tremor who was living that you moved air zona. He had the worst allergies any human being I've ever seen in my entire life I mean spring. He looked like death. You look like been reincarnated as a rag I mean it was the worst allergies ever seen. And he was a big boy even hilly he would admit I mean he was. Our big bowl. He moved to Arizona Phoenix. Where it's a 10506. All the time no problems zero humidity. He's like art and a browns are you any has no allergies out there's there's I don't thing anything grows some rock. But. I'm personally warm weather is on the way in those few who are waiting for spring go outside. The trees are starting to bud I noticed after last two weeks. Somebody on my FaceBook page brought the fact that these migrating Robin's. Done like head north. Like filling up his yard there or heading north so I'm telling spring is get rated springer's bro or whatever. I'm excited about it I'm ready for warm weather. In my voice to come back this is a I tell you have led to Wear it during the the break between shows. I'm a start cutting some Tom Waits covers if you do you know Tom Waits is. Partially. Okay well he's an old blues singer is still alive. And it's this maybe. That are bear beyond his Barry White tunes. Either way it would be fun. So. Dear my voice cut out that's been coughing. Other things we're gonna talk about like is that it's gonna rain what do we do. The wind when the rain comes from what we can do to make sure that house doesn't suffer from like you said. Like one and a half for almost two inches over the next week. With no place where to go what's that like the ground is gonna soaking up trees and plants are drinking it so we'll definitely be talking about that Valentine's Day. It is Wednesday. I've got a I got a new love in my life. So to Zach. Yeah up come on now you told me Europe until midnight talk to a young way. OK any sense and it is it cut it oh it's typical for. Does as irresponsible. As early as say to you today I keep looking at Oklahoma should have been dead heat why didn't she just teller honey I got to go to sleep. Because here honorable UVs AGCO with the momentum. See you were on a roll yes. And will figure out my name is rich richer and found it was 3451140. That's how you get through. To the home show on news radio WR VA 11:40 AM. One of six point one FM. Richard again news radio WRB day how is everybody the more than 3451140. His phone number. The voices coming back a little at a time you know I usually lose it for about two weeks. Maybe a little bit more. When I was a full time smoker hold my. I would lose it plays just it was that morning pack. The blue moon of. Remember I scared my sister in law one time she was staying over. And my morning coffee was justice who rip take. Hack. Hit it sounded like death it really did. But what I'm dealing with now. Is just this kind of head cold that I get this time a year every year. And it's it always comes down to win the what the weather go as warm cold warm cold I know I know I'll be the news to cheat stations like. Now the change whether does that make you sick. What makes me sick I don't know about everybody else but a big bugs me. So. I guess that I am that I'm in the process of costs they McCann. Is is changing. It was just me. You know and it's been that way for a long time. Kind of bachelor pad if you will. And a lot of things that means something other people didn't mean anything to me so you know I just let it slide. So. For those of you. Our interest that I am now. Off the market. That's right I I got engaged. I met a wonderful girl. Someone who treats me like gold. And as much as I swore I would never get married again. I mean. Swore I would never do it. People like Kirk a key. No my buddy Dave Davies. These guys are at their their their mend that they've been with their wives for thirty plus years. And both of them a couple of other people I've met who I respect their opinion. Said. You know I'm matter. And two months later we Mary and I'm like that's insanity. But they've been with the love of their life for thirty plus years I can't deny that. So when I met somebody that I thought was actually wonderful and I'm 45. You know. I'd just dove in feet first. As that's the kind of person I am. And now we're dealing with a the whole merging their households. This is what happens when your older and you decide to get into a serious relationship. 'cause I cook. And I will say that my kitchen is. Pretty darn complete. You name it. I'd probably have it if it's a gadget and gizmo. Is probably in a drawer. And then we had to say okay she has the same thing she has a complete. Kitchen. What are we gonna do could remember 'cause they McCann is not a big house. The kitchen dates back to go to warnings. Early thirties. Back when people didn't have. Crock pots and to the other two ovens. Toasters and all the other nonsense that we have today. Back then things pretty simple. Cited been reading an article. Online was talking about organizing your kitchen and the first thing it said was. Pull out. Everything. Just got the whole kitchen take every single thing that's in the kitchen out spread it out so you can see what you have. And back then when I was reading it I'm like. Well I'm not gonna do that that seems like a lot of work I don't wanna go through all of it guess what. Rule number one. Pull out everything. Take everything that it because let's face it we all have 12. Maybe even three drawers. They you have no idea what's in the if you've got a bigger kitchen I bet you have more than that. And everybody or refer to it as good joke drew war. I guarantee. You have one drawer at that is full of soy sauce hot sauce and hot mustard and duck sauce from Chinese take out. And it's probably. Zach. Essar how many how many packets of soy sauce and duck sauce do you think you have in your kitchen right now. Be completely honest I throw that stuff out with the fact really I as leaving in the back Alley touches the saudis with my meals oh. That is so interest I tell you what the difference in generations is going to be so much fun you and me it's gonna be out I bet you anything match. Has a whole drawer full of it. Oh god I know. OK okay here's here's the difference I have a few friends they collect chick lace like the pit exchange cheap place arsenal have a full tour. A justice packet a check delays so a sixth place what's the purpose. Where future use debt and later down the road on an eight chick filet Obama forget the sauce and I'm no expert on other meals make a BOT picture played. It is stake but seek ways sauce on that scrambled eggs in game. I tell you what I mean I'm not a huge chick lay guy but I found one of our listeners but owns a honey. Company here in Virginia. Any cells spicy honey. And he he's he sent me a bought a jar of it that brought a chick filet sandwich was to die for it was awesome. But so what I'm saying his first things first people you're gonna try to organize your kitchen. Don't even fight it just pull everything out we pulled out every drawer. In the kitchen. I take it into the living room and just dumped it. Just dumped out everything I realized. I owned a lot more chopsticks and I thought I did. Which is silly because on the way first the house the can use them. She's left handed it doesn't work. Be right hander left in it right and it can use chopsticks I can pretend to use them there you go okay we'll get some this kiddie ones that little rubber band at the top of that. And I can get by acting needs like larger chunks of it if I get. Remind me during some point I'll tell you the chopsticks story so pulled out every drawer. And we made sure that what we did we start going through her stub my stuff and figured out what was doubled up. Now don't get me wrong. I will not throw out. A knife generally speaking. But as I was going through all these drawers are realized that over the years people had given me some of the cheapest nights that's an ever owned. And for some reason I kept but could it donated them to somebody but for some reason I kept him around that was the first thing ago. I only can use so many knives at one point or another. Yes many. So what I did was all the cheap ones the ones that I knew were flimsy or could hurt me or you know we're just not worth having. They were gone had to go out. And that was step one so what I'm telling you that you're gonna organized kitchen first thing you do pull everything out there. All of it empty the cupboards empty the drawers there are cabinets you have got stuck your head into. For the longest time and you know. Time to pull them things out. Dover some of the things I've got plus what we gonna do with all this rain and op I have a story about what my has to be the smartest girl scout. I have ever heard about in my entire life Zach has aren't talking about this my friends is the home show news radio WR VA. Resurrecting bad news or radio and WR VK this is the home show. You. Sound and sexy on the radio these days. Highlighted. Prozac. Quick question their body ya podcasts are now available of this show am I correct of course there are and they are available where sun. I teams and bugle player of course outstanding now can they find it also WR BA dot com or. Just a link or anything like that I don't know I'm asking a question. Any check with producer Matt as well he's in Hitler spearhead on the project but you know he's he's he's he's roof now they're referring to him as the sheriff. The sheriff what's the man has more nicknames than I do. I this is news to me it was met was met the producer then they start calling a magic mad now he's referred to by the advertising department as the sheriff. He's getting swelled head. Obviously and you're being you're trying to get away from your own nickname that they gave you of that quiet on. Rick I have I want you doubt one quiet let's see that's the thing is you talk more on this show than probably any other show you produce so I don't see how they could call you quite Zach. I'm more reserved words you are reserved I would give you that. You know when when Gary and I just talking just I've never seen by shake their head as much as two people in my entire life. Is look at us like these these these idiots that's useful answer. 3451140. Is phone number for all your home through questions squares conundrum riddles. What's going on in my world is the merging of two worlds. And I've wanted to talk about the kitchen. Which is. Originally. Well I can't see it for years. The kitchen was the part of the house that if you're selling a house of buying a house. Women I'm sorry ladies don't get on me about tennis but women always looked at the kitchen. And men always looked the garage that is not the case anymore. You know take it from somebody who sells real state. Men are just. As just into the kitchen as women are if not more so. It's the rise of the you know the Food Network and stuff like that I remember back in the nineties. People were talking about chefs in Japan and Japan they're like rock stars like yeah that'll never happen here. Well what are we name a chef it's easy. Bobby Flay. Anthony boarding. You know Mario Vitale any of these you can look chefs have become rock stars. And it has led to more men getting into the kitchens in the kitchen is becoming a dual domain if you will now costs they McCann. I own the kitchen. To mind. And that's OK we've made that decision and the cook. I will say this idea. Are trying to recreate something that I have. Earlier let well last year. Is I went to the Armenian food vessel they have this this hos burgers with a college. And it's a mixture of why am and beef. We spices. You can get it three days out of the year and that's yet. And I live for the darn thing. And so the other day I cooked up some that I made it home. Now I cook them. In the non stick Pam I don't own many of them my own Warner I am too. The two into nonstick pans. One is for fish and one is for stuff I don't want to go to my cast iron. My cast iron secret. You don't touch the cast. Is well documented that my cast iron started. As a rusty balls of joke that you know got picked up at a yard sale for a dollar and now are slicker than tough line. Their loved their cherished. And the other day I came home. From work. No walks into their house and I would. And I could smell it. Smell lamb. Now I'm not again slam I'm not a huge fan either. When amber for me is what this means that now. Tends to be a bit funky for my taste. I can eat venison even though I'll soak venison first. But there's just some that I can go to can't do I can't it's just too. Too funky. But I came into the house because I had made several way hamburgers. Lamb and beef. And I wrap them up tight I put him in the freezer in the fridge excuse me miss at honey you know I made your lunch all you have to do is warming up. I didn't say. To use a certain pan. And so I come home and here's this. Folk in the air can smell it. In fact I'll I'll say this with the thing about William for me I don't feel we exactly or retirement sweating this little time I don't care if it's summer or not. The other day I. I was just hot burning up. In the sweat coming up my poor smelled like like him. Yeah this next week. So I come home and realized that house smells like like hamburgers. And I'm like. Larry about to break counsel for Brees but that's fine. No I'm glad that. You know she. Took the initiative. Jumped in the evening in enjoyed what I you know made up. Then I walk into the kitchen and realized something. She collected in one of my cast iron skillet. Up a big one. But must always have to that I use. Daily. A ten inch and fourteen inch. In the ten inch. Had this glisan. Lamb burger and it. Now for those of you that don't have cast iron sorry. Your life isn't simply. Got a cast iron skillet your house. You can tell me now. The promise I couldn't. You couldn't. Sorry housing you couldn't tell me. Item at the difference. Between what mullah. Are the differences in stilts. Yes. OX. OK okay wait a minute wait a minute wait a minute wait a minute. I understand last week I I kind of befuddled you because you didn't know what a mini split was and you sat there on the other side of the glass smiling and nodding. Until a big long break reset I had no idea what you guys are talking. So you're saying in your kitchen you have a frying pain threats coming frying pain. These guys attack pace speed if it's two different what's okay. Is it a light. Does it happen does it have a plastic handle no it as a metal handle yes okay. Is it heavy really heavy yes but do you wash it in the sink yes he's so Barney. Yes. But it will chances are you have a cast iron skillet to Jersey wrong. Okay all right that's not right that sounds was it a gift from like your mom your dad. What is that okay does give give it some things to cope with the okay Barrett what cast iron. Is like the original cooking OK that's that goes back to like hundreds of years. And so I'm gonna tell you step one if it is cast iron which I don't know now I'm kind of lost our new. Doesn't know much. That tells those hurt my brain. I'm here to learn as. That's true I can OK got that step one with guest artist you don't watch it was so. You don't wash it was so because the thing about cast iron skillet is the royals. That you used in it will feel in the pores to get to the point where literally. It's slicker than Teflon. I it was your rage. Where wash somebody's cast iron skillet he was a chef I washed his skill was so. I thought he was gonna kill me. Honestly the man was so mad I mean I've never seen anybody lose their mind over helping out in the kitchen. But cast iron you do not wash with soap so I come home. And realize that. What in my cast iron skillet has been cooking she cooked lemon in the thing about cast iron is. You have to separate out what you're going to cook it because he also long soaking up the oils in the juices. It's soaks up the flavors. A onetime cooked fish in one of my cast iron skillet its biggest mistake I ever made. Because I can never use that cast iron skillet for anything else. Everything else like cook did it taste like fish. When I ended up doing with that. Was throwing it in the oven. And turning the oven clean. By Lilly had a big week. Or burn whichever you wanna say oils out of that skill it took for ever for me to get that thing to backward could use it again. Well with the the white hamburger going into the cast iron skillet I had a similar situation now got these these folks. That's going into the actual medals. Of the pain itself any of you watch hell's kitchen. If you do you'll note last week. Gordon Ramsey lost his mind. When one of the cooks. Put lay down into a beef pay. I didn't even think about it until I watched and he says not any way different a look friend of mine who worked here. In Richmond he doesn't work here anymore he was on hell's kitchen he said nicest guy in the world until you tick him off and then he just loses his mind. But splitting one juicy thing into another pan. Is a big no no what I had to do it wasn't put the skill down and this is how you clean cast iron skillet. But the skillet on. The burner and got a hot. Once it was hot upward in a couple tablespoons vegetable oil. And then I'll hear it must've been about. A third maybe a quarter cup of salt. And let that start to cook a little bit that I took a huge wad of paper towels and apparent tones. And I use that solved and that will to score rub. The hot pain in a way that pulled out all the juices. It pulled out all the smell. And it's a great way this season. A cast iron skillet if you buy cast iron skillet in that sense pre season they're lying to. It is not pre season it's gross. You need to put an oil salt. Scrub carefully though because remembered I got hot oil hot salt. Now Bernie like nobody's business so that's I got skill clean. And she's melodies cast iron anymore. This preference is the whole show news radio WR via. I was WR 11:40 AM and six point one FM. And if you wanna hear podcasts of the show. You can go to iTunes and who play just type in the home show with Richard McKay and guess what this guy pops up. And now there's quite a few of them up there I think we've got. Ottawa 1012 boom already out from those at least last two months so there's all kinds of Richard McCain did this for you to find. You can also call to show 3451140. Which would be easier on me because I have almost no voice whatsoever and it's only fading faster. You know I could talks lower. People say I talk too fast. That's an option I guess. Wouldn't sound like me though wouldn't that. Not proud so if you don't like being called quiet Zach what do you want to call you. Or do we have is this one of those cases where you're gonna to earn a nickname. I mean do I during the in the neighbors IR one that I give everybody nicknames and I'm like rescued. I told told Jeff quicker addicts here advanced discussions like technically quite sent a clear. I'll do some research fights apparently because there's three Zacks in this building for. OK I know Zach the boss. Ascetic Muzak Muzak. Zach from XL one or two is goes by Yvonne yes but I mean I could call it you know we could easily call him. Muzak. Moment. And it looked so we were where's the fourth Zach before executives at Simon's assistants. Okay. Two of these acts in this building that's for sure or one or two again. Thank got Eric. So the merging of two kitchens what does that entail tales quite a bit to be honest with and the first thing I would say is empty everything. Empty the drawers and to the cabinet you'd be amazed at how much stuff. It's just cram anything that you haven't seen in years. A red the other day that every time a sock disappears in the laundry is reincarnated is that the lid of a piece of Tupperware. I am pretty sure that's true. I found more zip lock lids that I owns a plot containers. And they're just crammed up when. Shopping bags. Everywhere. Why did I save them have no idea. Believe it or not you can recycle them the plastic bags you get it take them back to the grocery store with you and recycle them. I think that's a wonderful idea to keep an anything out of law land fills a big thing for me. Oh by the way. Before I get too much farther into this. Reusable shopping bags. See him all the time right. Everybody has two or three of whom for a home. See people walking grocery store with them and their cloth. We psych you know reusable. Crusher backs. Here's the problem. Nobody washes there's darn things. There was a report came out two or three years ago. Well they did a bacteria test. All and a the the reusable cloth shopping bags. There was more E. Coli and Salmonella in those things than anything else might as well just dump raw chicken into. So if you have the reusable grocery bags do me a favor wash them. Gross. ST. Who would doubt we emptied everything on the kitchen and I'll admit I had no idea is that some of the stuff. I just saved over the years. Things I hadn't seen in years I found. An aluminum. Skill it. That I literally have never used I've never came with the house. I know it was there when I bought the place. And my thought was at that time and for however long. Oh. All use that to make grapes. The government creep in my life. Why don't I have this thing. Out the door win that actually went into the recycling. Then we start going through stuff that we had doubles and triples. I was amazed at how she got a complete set of of very very nice cooking pots and pants. I have on the other hand said some really cheap. Old. Pots that I barely ever used. And I kept them debt deal strictly for the idea oh that's a double boiler bell I need a double boiler because I might. Melt some chocolate. To do something. I don't know why even thought about that I never cooked chocolate I don't know take. Out the door they want. Gadgets and gizmos that we had that we're in this cheap. That was something kind of amaze me you know who's who of that stuff that was like your starter kitchen you know the stuff that your parents gave you when you moved out of the house. I can take you. Right now I can take you to a couple of plate. Two forks to students. That my best friend's mother gave me when I moved out of my parents' house when I was eighteen years old I still have them I know where they are. And I still use the fact I still think about where retirement years. But some of the stuff like a plastic songs. That I've never used outdoors it. Everything that we had to Rios. Went Al do war. And that's what advice you do you'd amaze you be amazed how much space actually having your kitchen. When you just get really joke. Now then we came out it up against something that used to be a big problem for me in my kitchen. I finally got over it I am spices fiend. Spices everywhere stuff you probably wouldn't even name when last unused human. A mink yes oh. Not cool how long and really I'm very proud and I look spices so despite the spice paprika. Yeah Exel although one of the things they'll do is a dome finally apple though has some time he seasoning but that on. I've gotten. It's so good you pick up. Oh god it's hinted. A lot you were pregnant and that's the pill on the with a flat irons they OK it's actually regulate the Friday thing. Okay so what growth at I had a lot of success. You if you say your frying mistaking you could in years in your skill. Yes you might very well have cast iron we're gonna have to talk about the way you treated there your from the get your book or something. Now cast iron is sacred and telling I was listening to make a podcast listened and listened OK now I'm working. But we came up against spices and I had torn spices already and she had one of those big moving boxes. Bull now why am I bring that up if I used to manage the problem is. We started going through the looking at the expiration day. To think about pre ground spices which we all used on Camaro except for pepper. Like a grandma. We can come up with a all these places well if they're sitting in the cabinet for a long period of time. They lose their punch. They don't taste like anything anymore and that which you've got to deal with is out of date spices. So I can honestly say we price threw away an entire shopping bag full of spices that we just hadn't used in. Probably they've been dead for two or three years they just kind of floated around up there are so we kept using them. So now they're gone which you can. And make so much space. In your kitchen. If you just cleaned out. I can said the solve this all started when I was dealing with a enhance. We would go into people's kitchens and they the people in there would always say the same thing I had no idea at the store stuff in this news in this cab. Well you know you do it Corey time to get rid of it. So. What I wanna talk about in the next segment. His food safety. Because whether things we did come up with that I would not budge on was commonly cutting boards I had in my house including hers. The thing is again cutting boards are sacred. If you go to Japan. This thing it's it you don't. Disrespect the knife with a cutting board if you go back to the 2000. The millennium. When Bobby Flay. Went up against Massey here are more remote show. On Iron Chef Japan. At the end of the battle. Bobby Flay. Climbed up onto the countertop. And stood on top of the cutting board. The entire country of Japan. Was insults. In fact if what are what I understand more remote wouldn't talk to him for years. They later became friends on Iron Chef America. But back then obviously I was really young too. You disrespect did the cutting board I personally have quite a few cutting boards I'll tell you why. When we get back after the news but it is Ritchie McKay and the phone number 3451140. Also you can follow me on FaceBook it's Richard McCain MCK. A and M love. For you to follow me because that's Regan finalize the stories that I put up like it happened in Florida this week. You know can believe that someone actually you know what marriage as wife charity. Says. To idioms he has had Richard really has it out for Florida. And I'm like no no I really don't. It's just some of the most insane things I've ever heard in my entire life happen in fla. That Richmond's not Texas. Not even New Orleans. Florida. And now people start sending me the stories Zach I gotta I gotta question record here yet did that old guy that does the the news. As you know I mean I know it's it's a Milli parks as walker. Before he goes into the Booth but did you just say that I'm old because that Van Halen came up forty years ago. I was five years old I'd iconic that's like from you know newscast just.

Is up phone number do you have a home Kirby question clear conundrum riddle some of the people that the writing and Richard listening from the elliptical at the gym I thank you Kirk achy you're not gonna find me on an elliptical because that's just. Not gonna happen Nathan road and Jimmy are Richard it's my kitchen in our house to. And used to wrap pervert we have to T 00 so it's so measles. You can also leave me messages at Rich McKay and on FaceBook I appreciated. I am on Twitter. Though I don't twit as much as I should and Zach is on. Tender zevil. Yeah. It is almost sounds as they did is almost Valentine's Day do you have a special somebody in your life for Valentine's Day. Are you gonna do anything very optimistic assumptions on. And I try to try to do that I mean I told you I'm going to be working and working freeways that takes all kinds of plans yeah I can understand that not for me. I'll admit I'm not being a curmudgeon I'm not a jerk. But I am not a big Valentine's again I I like to think if you got somebody in your life every day should be some special. But if you go to my page. There is a list of fourteen gifts that you can buy. For the mail in your life. I mean everybody focuses on the lady and I'm down with that don't get hero I will be treated my lady very well on Valentine's Day. But they had on a list of what a story I read it was tactical gifts off for the man in your life and one of them. A lot of our head but the one that was on that list that I will encourage people to get because it's not expensive. Of all the things out there are known. Okay. I don't quite a few. Bags. Backpacks. Messenger bags. I. Own more of those than my own pairs of shoes. By a lot I probably are more bags than your wife and purses guys I'll admit it. I was always looking for that that one up that one that was better than the one before it. And if for those for the life of me I don't know why don't as many as I do. Because I have two on the regular that I carry in one of made this list. About 02 years ago. My buddy Brian and Tony who's been on the show by the way. One and you want me to get a 511 tactical bag. And he's like which one you want to have some of these things are very expensive. I think the backpack was like a 185. Bucks which is ludicrous for a backpack but. It's so durable and goes through the you know everything I put it through you understand. And so I said you know what I don't wanna go super expensive. But I want the messenger bag it made the the list of gifts or you're the man in your life. 511. Messenger bag is my I love that in fact it's sitting right next to me right now I should disaster earlier. It has every pocket you can possibly imagine. Incredibly durable. I can fit my laptop into it which I carry on the regular also. But if I want to I can also carry. My weapon and it. And my clips. Skews being oh lord all lord did you hear that. Alan Fisher's brain just exploded. Because I didn't say magazines. I said clips. Right now Stacy is cleaning up his brains off the side of the of the kitchen. You're talking like clips out of magazines like you'd cut like. No paper no no and and and see that's that's my problem I should I used the wrong word its color magazines what holds. The rounds that go into your firearm. But I got to have years ago calling clips. And Aaron every time etc. and Allen are Stacy they would just. Little bits of brain and hair all over the walls. Have to wrap wrap that thing in duct. But you know of all the things out there ladies you're gonna buy you gentlemen something you wanted to carry. And think about I love my 511 tactical. A messenger bag here's the best part not that expensive. The backpack like his has about a 185 bucks messenger bag which I find just as durable and holed probably more stuff. Many of them bucks. You know you can. Go out and buy any other kind of messenger bag it's gonna be this durable I doubt you're gonna find it but if you look at Lister wanna see that list you can find it which we can't. On FaceBook that's where I've got that. I can also take your calls 3451140. If you wanna talk to me even with this creaky voice I do apologize. I don't have the flu fortunately.

But it is urgent care the thought it was 3451140. That's how you get through to the home show on news radio WRB day. Rich McKay and news radio WR via the phone numbers 3451140. Thanks to Sammy who sent me home take. Says how to clean your ice rink in the instead of using the the boulders for curling. They're using cats and are you big curling fans there's. It's definitely no one's where it's like gravity towards stimulant Winter Olympics it's. One of their art US team this year the mixed couples that now mixed couples for curling. It's a brother and sister. I you know I love my Brothers and sisters I don't think I could get into the Olympics with a report 51140. Markets. Good morning morning markets were gonna do for you on the home show. My interest the last hour that you mentioned care protests turned coop where I I have some cast iron cookware I got this really awesome. Cast iron block with a flat bottom that. It is lowering them like Stowe because it's a evenly on the sides. And I have a cast iron skillet and I was wondering if you might be able to spend. A few minutes talking about how to care for cast iron. Well absolutely I mean one. Step number one knows soap and water. So you have never touch cast iron. Because because the cast iron it it it gets what they call season. All the whales and butters and fat and everything that get in there. Into all the pores of the cast iron and actually make it's you know so it's skid through basically so you're good at that. Okay how do you clean your Kestner. Water and when those little leave. Sponge like things that again that the borrowers or those black. Kind of course. The greens grubby. Got a game which really meant what you wanna do those from time to time you wanna put your cast iron skillet or your wac. On to the on the stove. Get high with a little bit of glee Buick vegetable oil in there military and some peanut oil. Let that get nice and hot and then pour in about a third to a quarter to a third cup of Kosher salt. Oh okay and now while the way it was hot in the sultans high. You can take an old rag or media very large wad of paper towels. Grab it with a pair of homes. And try and make sure you're wearing two gloves to remember we're talking about hot oil and how well assault. And what you do is you scrub. The pan or the wac with this whales salt mixture. And will be scrubbed the life out. And what that's gonna do is that's gonna work the oil into the worst of the cast iron. And the salt is going to help decontaminate. Anything that might be growing in there because we're using so at any time right. No so. You know there is that chance that something can do you know if you've left a dirty skillet laying out for too long something can be growing in it a little botulism or like that. So what bill plus the salt. Yes scrub it out that sanitize his cast iron. And it cleans it out. And it prevents it from roasting them on the road so that's what I am I do that about once ever the well I have one cast iron skillet that I used on the regular meaning daily. So once every two weeks yourself ice grab that thing out the some salt and with no enemy it is slick as the top of my dad's. Yeah I have much to deliberate in America you cast iron because it's almost like it's up one step in the right. I need is that the rightward. A Petit who I think is what your machine or Tina could be either one but. It's always we counted in castor worlds would call it seasons. Its wheels and doesn't skillet and I mean the thing is with the salt will trek. I have taken cast iron skillet that we're just one giant ball of rust. And we have turned them into something that I can use on a daily basis. Our mark old. Warriors. Go forth and cook. It I guess there. Here's. I have a friend of mine they were invited over to couple's house friends of the family. And it just so happened that the friends were from Japan. And they were cooking traditional Japanese. Dishes. Using a wac. That they've had in the family for quite some time. When my friends didn't cook. And they didn't know any better so after dinner they said they will clean up for you. And they went into the kitchen. And start washing the dishes and plates and they rattled the wac. And scrubbed out into the sink thinking hey we do the right thing. People said thank you very much I really do appreciate that. What you just washed out like ten years worth of season. For that walk so. Mike can just killed a guy about a minute. Yes. I've been playing out a yeah. Make you know Brunswick student. Every year. We have a big pot fourteen gallons. And what. Decade. Rule well. She. Wolf will burn. It's in. An. You're having trouble because you get your radio on and that's why you're trying to be yeah. Yeah it's like you're trying to beat the here's the thing. Does big pots are doing Brunswick Stew most of people I know that do that once they clean it out they hose it out there they rub the inside of Dell's large. Yes I cleaned it with alarm was dead before you go to cook. He's getting into the large out of. That's right that means you gotta get that thing super hot and scrub it out again. Yes. Or should I take it torture inside of it and burn it would deport. And did and I grow government revenue. It is torture felt burned the war now. Gab is because you know the problem with the largest. Botulism can grow in that dark during the time that you're not using it so. I gotta I gotta go I'm running at a times I think appreciate Colin their bubble. Not a problem how we. Being used to victory. We'll bring me some my name is Richard McCain that's a CK a NN. You can reach me 3451140. Come follow me on FaceBook. And on Twitter. This is the home showed WR VA. Great to look at. News radio that you are VA. Using bumper music that's much older than Zach. So I I I I've avoided this one topic. Because I just thought it was so. You know. It was those silly it was goofy. And then I find out people are taking it far more seriously than I am. And then I having conversations with by now. Millennial producer. And I find out that this problem is much more deeper rooted. Than I could possibly imagine. Now. One. We all know that your spurs to keep all kinds of chemicals soaps. Cleaners. All that type of stuff away from children. Which I've never understood why the cookie jar is on top of the refrigerator. Yet we keep all the cleaning products underneath the sink. Beat goes kid can't reached Coates. Doesn't make a lot of sense. So now the problem is that. There have been cases. We're very very small children. Have been caught popping. Laundry pods into an amount small children little cute babies. Yes. I actually the bigger issues with teenagers. Oh I'm. Our kittens there oh I don't get their because here's the problem. You're in your EU debt and teenagers. Are eating these things. And putting up videos like am I right on this QG foul YouTube. Private. And how many people and make videos have you seen as era I have no answers okay watching stupidity like that are so I can understand. You know an infant. Getting into something they're not supposed to. I can't understand a teenager. Putting these things in their mouth and chewing up but hey. You know. I'm a strong believer in the Darwin awards and well. We've got into the point where you you know that you Wear a helmet when your Roger bicycling matter under on the back of a truck something's got a cult hurt. But in New York they're trying to pass a law that states that why in the packages are supposed to be in childproof containers which. Pretty sure I'd teenager can open that. And to. They are making it they're making a law a law to make them look quote less delicious. They're gonna pass a law about that this is not my New York broad. So I think oh how stupid it's not like anybody is eating these things because they look delicious. Then I talked to Zach. Zach is 23 years old. By all accounts a grown up. What was that you said that you and Matt and cat had a conversation about yesterday. So. I was go to their house and as we had some type fonts and looked at them like I can see I can see why people might think he's a delicious. They looked yummy do you. They can remind it what you put those blacks and he's been like that liquid than the quickest soda pop then also I think they kind of remind me of the ushers. A gusher yes. So here's the problem I am sitting here going OK Macomb child proof because well you don't want babies getting into that I can understand it. But child proofing is not gonna have anything to do with the teenager Orton now eight early twentysomething. Getting into it if it's child proof they're not children they can get into it. But that allows just say well we got to make him look less yummy looking or Mike who's gonna think they're yummy looking at it right on the other side of the glass. Elizabeth boys have a mind Zacks like that it was concluded. Vary. I am I can't we can't at least you know what though. I got a Hannity at least you admit to it yet and it is about the law of nature were bright colored things are poisonous. In those cases. Things that are read in general are bad for you. In fact people thought the tomatoes were. Gonna were poisonous until somebody eight or head over. And technically the tomato is part of the night shade them so yeah I guess I can understand that. But I am sick I just couldn't believe like okay well I don't know why would beating these things because they look yummy. And then you add it missed the tomb but looks kind of come. No wonder what that tastes like dog lectures. I don't and in some cases it. Terror it's poisonous. A retrospect entering Leach mean. You can drink bleach. It's not going to be good for it's not poisonous. But you're not going to enjoy any moment of it and you have to have stomach pumped. But. It just comes I will say this hats off to you for at least admitting to. Because now I got the soul of it too wasn't. And I guess you're like oh they had the blue in the orange in the white going on the swirl his actions but. It's wrapped in exits the almost like if they. Juice. So there was gray you'd like now pass on the they made him Graeme who. Obviously somebody. As bigfoot tours and I don't kits are doing this and putting videos up. I mean I'd I go to YouTube may be once. A week and usually that's like to see a new movie trailer other that I never go to YouTube. Obviously people are doing a lot. It's amazing to me we are now. In a society where the dumber you are. More famous you can be. Like that kid that when he was in the the suicide forest. You know he actually was this out dumb this human being yes he's worth millions. He's worth millions of dollars. No sooner does he do that. He put up another video just the other day. Very was taking a taser to dead rats. How does that entertainment. You know what we start to understand why my show is as popular as it is people like stupid people. And I think that's why they like me. As Everett of the gladiator. Speaking it. You know what. And that's the thing that's why don't watch USC. I can't watch blood sports I can't watch stupidity. I wanna be entertained. Now a days people are famous for absolutely nothing the card definitions are worth millions. Have you ever seen that person talk. I heard it for like twenty seconds I thought I was gonna lose my mind felt like glass on the inside my eyeballs. Horrible. Yet people. Give them millions. Her map maker. Her I have made her eighty million dollars. Eighty million dollars for an. Zach we got to get to work on an app. I'm telling. Us that what's the next thing we added him as but those kids that region's active and play kids right now so really know yet. It's an electric prerequisite for a lot of science interesting. As I have an idea of turnout really do it hasn't been done yet. We'll talk about that 3451140. That they get through to the show if you have a home through a question queer conundrum riddle whatever is going on in your world. Let me know I was talking earlier about clean up the kitchen and that's all we had to do with the house. And one of the things though I would not get rid of is I don't quite a few cutting boards. And there's a reason for this. Palm pretty funny about food safety. If you listen to our Thanksgiving show the show after Thanksgiving or talk about how long food can last in the fridge. And what you should do to make sure that it is safe. Well the same thing goes for your counter tops. And you were cutting boards. I have one cutting board that I used pretty regularly to you very large wooden cutting board. But I only use it. For vegetables. And cheese. Bread. I don't cut meat on it. Ever. Nod over the red meat not shaken not fish none of that gets cut on my wooden cutting board. For mine meat. I have several different plastic boards to anymore about a minute. Mitch Richmond. Today the boy and got a question for which Mr. Bush held. We're we're division after Christmas all the lights were on real pretty ringing doorbell shook the circuit breaker. The conflict between the. Hubble worried. Well I don't know that you should be that worried what it sounds like his. The the the outside lights and her doorbell or on the same circuit. And so it was probably just on the very cusp of being able to trip went all the lights were on. When you engage that doorbell and engage that transformer. That was enough power to trip off the rest look at the triple breaker it's probably a fifteen amp circuit. And you know while the lights were on but nobody is such in the door belt it was just. On the cost you know of saying here. So like at my house we had a I have a one circuit in my kitchen. That I use and I can only run like the coffee maker but if I wanna use the electric grid let's turn off the coffeemaker the other day. I'm trying to use the griddle and the cavs tripped the breaker and I couldn't write for the life of me figure out why that I realized. My fiance had a heater running in another room they were on the same circuit. So every time I tried to use. The scale it because the heater was on we trip the whole breaker so that's a Judeo with the right there everything was all just on the Cust if you know him saying. Now has it as a trip since because since she's taken lights down. Or say about it. Those sounds like she's all right. If you're really worried about it. Have electrician come out there and do a lewd or check the load on that circuit Yemeni camps it's drawing on the regular. Our Mitch go forth numbers.

Apple cider vinegar is she too that's the third time saloons brought that up what's the deal have no idea. By the way Zach while you're at it. You need to get on the phone to 511 tackle. And figure out a way to charge them for like the 32 minute commercial just gave them against us in autumn's I mean. As game a freak that's actually it's that. That necessary book that C and now we got to get a picture you with your bags. Have few peasants in the funny thing is all it will not today today as with a few days I'm not. Just about everything I Wear his five. Because a Lister of the show as a friend of mine. He's the rest up. And so every now and then he gets you know it would he has me do research and development. And basically you'll hand me stuff and say now go out and destroy it. And some of the stuff I've gone destroyed you go you climb underneath enough houses are gonna terrorism stuff up. Some of that I haven't so that's where I met that back to what I was saying though about the kitchen and cutting boards here's the thing. Now I don't know if you watch. Cooking shows. I tend to. Though I don't like the fact that Food Network is more of a game show channel that it is an actual cooking channel anymore I used to like to watch the actual cooking shoes. But the war in that I will say. I think she's fantastic. Because she really pushes this is the shaft called and Burrell. Then she started out as a sushi off on Iron Chef and now you probably know are from like she does that worst cooks in America. Show. Blonde lady with a pair like a rooster. One of the things that she pushes really hard and I wanna remind people too and this is why I have like. Five different. Cutting boards. Is because cross contamination. Salmonella. And ways to pay your your people getting sick. I have one cutting board that I use on the regular. Cut bread. I cut the jays. Janet. Fruit vegetables Zach is shaking his head at me like right now like. I wanna go back to the the Sports Radio Pakistan mr. But anything that can't spread disease price cut on the wooden board. Or beef. I have a plastic. Cutting board I like the plastic one because it's easy to scrub down. It's really durable. And it's not gonna damage my knives I have a separate plastic cutting board for meat. As another win for. Cutting up fish. And another one for cutting poultry. You have to be super super careful when you're cutting up fish and poultry wash your hands continuously. Anytime you touch chicken or pork. And then you touch something else that's cross contamination. Now for your cutting boards that you cooking poultry and pork Cohen. I would advise when your done cutting everything up sanitize that board not just with. Hot water and soap. But give little little bit of a bleach rub down. I keep bleach underneath the sink in a spray bottle. Don't have kids so I don't have to worry about it but for cleaning up around the house and keeping my cutting boards separate now you heard me say. Would and you heard me say plastic. One of the things I absolutely hate and despise. Glass cutting boards per to very specific. Reasons one they're slippery. The slide all over the place and never can get him to stay put into. Glass is very very very damaging. Two year knives. Cutting on plastic coating on wood edge is going to keep a lot longer than it will if you were counting on glass. Now the finish up this little show something that was a disappointment. My lady had gotten a brand new set of kitchen knives a nice set I know her parents paid really good money for passing them for. And so I. Got rid of if you mind. And decided I was gonna try these out I was excited what was I gonna cut up tomato. Not a big deal right. Grab the chef's knife and a realized. Every knife in this block. Was dull as a butter knife I mean it was brand new and completely go I even hit it with the sharpener. They were still though. This can be dangerous to you and your family. A dull knife is far more dangerous than sharp and a sharp knife you can control you know where it's gonna go you know what it's gonna cut through you're doing it deliberately deliberately. Dull lives. Are dangerous. Because you can't control away as well and they will slip they will turn on him. I've been the cut were stabbed by a dull knife. A lot more than ever had by sharp so what are left to do these guys who had taken to a professional sharper they're out there aren't talked. But they are out there. You'll be amazed at how sharp knife is what you had professionally done. Also little trick I give to a an Asian market right here on broad street. I pick up a new and vegetable cleaver once every six months brand new very very sharp. And when it's dull. You are positive cheap enough at the roadway. But that does the check keep everything sharp in the house.
