Here's an idea™ — A bookofjoe BrainFlash™


This new feature will encompass my sudden inspirations while ignoring perspiration.

Wait a minute, that's not right....

No matter.

Be Sure™.

Hey, come on, joe, let's go already, we don't have all day for you to get untracked: we're busy and important people.


Me so bad.


Just now I was visiting the refrigerator and had the door open so I could in turn remove each one of five jars of different types* of Peloponnese-brand** olives and tip a few onto a paper plate to energize myself for the next few hours.

And as I did so the penny dropped.

Why should I have to remove the jar from the fridge and bring it over to the counter where the plate sits?

Why isn't there a pull-out/snap-out/folding shelf built into the refrigerator door on which to rest the plate, making the whole operation easier?

First manufacturer to offer this feature can pretend they thought it up themselves.

I'll never tell.

*Amfissa, Cracked, Kalamata, Ionian and Country.

**Without question the finest widely-available brand of olives in jars available in the U.S.

I judge a store by how many varieties it carries.

The best in Central Virginia is Harris Teeter in the Barracks Road Shopping Center in Charlottesville, with the tally of five noted above.

I object to this idea on ecological grounds...refrigerators with vertical doors are stupid to begin with (wall of cold air runs onto floor every time you open them - and in some households, thats 20+ times a day -- making the already largest user of electricity in house [outside of AC for those who have it] even less ecological!).

This invention would encourage complete emptying of cold air reserves to floor of kitchen.

The right implementation would be to have a series of small doors IN the main door that enable access to specific interior compartments. Such a door to your olive jar shelf, could be designed with an integrated "extenda-shelf (TM)" that would even inhibit cold air loss...

Your's truly,
The eco-curmudgeon.
