The saga continues on Main Menu. Mr. Mozen will be the guest and I am sure this will be a fantastic, no I mean it seriously, interview that we will all be talking about for weeks to come. Thanks to Jeff Bishop for posting this info in the comments section. And yes.. I do actually read and respond to comments. So feel free to say whatever. By the way here's a link to Jeff's blog with a preview of the Main Menu interview.
News of this new talking, and low priced, microwave is making the rounds at work. I have heard that this is selling between $80 to $94 at Wal Mart and Best Buy. Here's a website address and a rundown of features.

One of the quotes in an email had this description:
"Its just under 1 cubic ft and Its 900 watts too so quite
powerful. We're actually still getting used to that aspect of it since our last one wasn't nearly that powerful.
The buttons are totally accessible. They're easy to feel, and are much like the buttons on any other appliance or remote control. It also has a little knob that you turn to set the cook times, with a little notch you feel each time you turn it so you can easily tell how far to turn it.
You push a button on the knob and it'll ask you to set the minutes, then when you set the minutes you push the button again and it'll ask you to set the seconds. After you do that you push the button again and it starts. It is really easy to use."
