I need to quickly finish printing training materials for the school nurse for a meeting in a couple of hours. Without having the pump in front of me, I can't recall the exact steps to lock the pump. Where the hell is Susanne? Press "ACT" I think. Go to "utilities" maybe? Pre-heat to 375 degrees? I just can't recall. Can someone please help me out? Need to print this out and leave work soon for our meeting. Thanks very much!

I Love The Gap!
Watching the news on the latest election poll figures, I holler to Susanne, who is in the kitchen preparing breakfast for the kids.
"McCain is closing the gap!" I say.
"What???" my daughter Maeve says, stunned.
"He's closing The Gap? I love The Gap!"
Yet another reason to oppose John McCain.
