What do you call a drill with a beater attached to it? A Red-Neck Mixer, of course. My kitchen mixer gave out about three months ago. Finances are really tight, so I decided to “rough it,” and mix things the old fashioned way: by hand. However, some things are really hard! So, when I noticed my teenage son making a milk shake, using his drill with a single beater attached to it, I thought, “Wow, that just might work.” It actually does the trick pretty well as a substitute, until I can afford a new one. Hey, maybe our politicians can learn a lesson from my “Red-Neck Mixer,” and stop spending money they don’t have, and just make do!
