We had a CD mature a while back and with interest rates what they are, decided to just let it set in our checking account for a while before investing in something. We are getting some help with our decision. Yesterday we bought the new TV and last evening the oven appeared to go out (flamed out) on Elaine's nearly 17 year old GE Electric stove. Carolyn came down and went with us this afternoon to Davisson Furniture Store here in Seward where we bought a new Maytag Electric stove with a convection oven. Elaine wants a white one to match our other kitchen appliances and unfortunately, they didn't have one in stock. It will be next week before it can be delivered and installed. Meanwhile we are heating water in my old electric coffee pot and Elaine is cooking on her electric skillet. We have the circuit breaker "flipped" which also takes out our microwave. We don't want to have any electricity going to the stove since the oven gets hot even without anything being turned on. We also had a bit of a scare with our hot water heater a week ago so we may not have to be too concerned about investment decisions.
