Did I really Say That

Following is an article in todays Boston Globe. There is no question that top mounts(freezer on the top) have declined in popularity in recent years. However, it is still the least expensive option per cubic foot and also the largest refrigerator at 21 cubic foot within a 30 inch space

I do like that my name is spelled correctly and they did use the word ubiquitious, which means to be everywhere. I love that word

The basic white fridge is a dinosaur
February 28, 2007

It's hard to imagine life without a refrigerator. But the modern refrigerator only became a ubiquitous household appliance in the 1950s. Before that, people kept food cool by storing it outside in cold weather, in cellars, or in insulated boxes that were packed with ice.

Today, refrigerators are the biggest category at stores such as Yale Appliance and Lighting, where director of sales and marketing Steven Sheinkopf says these kitchen essentials range in price from $500 or $600 for a standard box to as high as $12,000 for a designer, commercial-style fridge.
The basic white freezer-over-fridge model looks like a dinosaur compared to those with stainless steel finishes or "integrated design" models that match the wood or other exteriors of cabinets; these seem to disappear into the kitchen's decor.
Sheinkopf predicts that sales of stainless steel fridges, that "go with everything," will remain strong for the foreseeable future. New models keep popping up, such as one with side-by-side doors and a freezer underneath, called a French Door. In any case, these innovations will continue to undermine sales of the basic white box. -- LEIGH BELANGER
