    I can relate to ‘Richard from Del Rio’ comment. Here in Texas when they ask how hot it is in those mail trucks, I tell them it is my ‘Easy Bake’ oven. They say, Yeah, but you have a dash fan don’t you? I say, Yes, that just turns it into a confection oven and makes sure I’m well done all over. lol
