ROFL, Leave it to the USAF to speak in golf terms :)   ( just kidding ) 

Mulligan would be a golf shot that you pretend never really happened :)

I don't know - - what's a mulligan?  Is it something like a henway?

I am looking into a new processor this next year.  I thought that the
older VIPs were good units.  However, reading about the problems people
are having with the VIP 5, I'm having doubts.  I'm curious if those of
you having problems were given a mulligan, would you still chose a VIP
or something else?

Hey, you all don't scare me WE just purchase a new VIP 5 and have not
used it yet!

Hey Joe, how are you doing?

how long have you had the VIP 5? I've had my machine almost 3 years
haven't had that problem. If you don't close the lid properly, when it
in fluid, the lid pops off, but we haven't had any smells.
    Please let us know what the service rep says. I always like new
