    About 6 months ago, I tried to grab a can of applesauce out of the pantry, and the can was frozen to the shelf. (it was way in the back)
    When I finally soaked it enough with a warm rag to get in unstuck, it had expired shorty after Barack became President.

    2x a year, everything is pulled out of there and cleaned well and I guess it just leaked out the bottom and stuck after one of those cleanings.
    Upon further inspection, I threw away another half dozen cans or so. Apparently you CAN have too many black olives.

    Trailblazing Star Trek Writer D.C. Fontana Dies at 80: 'She Was a Pioneer'.

    Dorothy Catherine "D.C." Fontana is known for further developing the famous character, Spock.

    Dorothy Catherine Fontana, a writer on the original Star Trek series, has died. She was 80 years old.

    Fontana, who went professionally by “D.C.,” passed away “peacefully” on Monday after fighting a brief illness, the American Film Institute announced Tuesday in a press release obtained by PEOPLE.

    The writer is credited with developing the Spock character’s backstory and “expanding Vulcan culture,” SyFy reported of her massive contribution to the beloved sci-fi series. Fontana was the one who came up with Spock’s childhood history revealed in “Yesteryear,” an episode in Star Trek: The Animated Series, on which she was both the story editor and associate producer.

    As the outlet pointed out, Fontana was also responsible for the characters of Spock’s parents, the Vulcan Sarek and human Amanda, who were introduced in the notable episode “Journey to Babel.”

    In fact, Fontana herself said that she hopes to be remembered for bringing Spock to life.

    “Primarily the development of Spock as a character and Vulcan as a history/background/culture from which he sprang,” she said in a 2013 interview published on the Star Trek official site, when asked what she thought her contributions to the series were.

    With Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry, she also penned the episode “Encounter at Farpoint,” which launched The Next Generation in 1987. The episode introduced Captain Picard, played by Patrick Stewart, and earned the writing pair a Hugo Award nomination.

    Not only was Fontana responsible for creating much of Star Trek canon, she also “helped blaze a trail for female writers in sci-fi television,” the official website said in its obituary. “Fontana’s credits to Star Trek cannot be understated, both as a writer of great stories and as a trailblazer for other women.”

    In the 2013 interview, Fontana said that though she was a writer in Hollywood in the 1960s, she didn’t necessarily think of herself as a rarity — but instead felt she was part of “an elite” group.

    “At the time, I wasn’t especially aware there were so few female writers doing action adventure scripts,” she said. “There were plenty doing soaps, comedies, or on variety shows. By choosing to do action adventure, I was in an elite, very talented and very different group of women writers.”

    And for her work in the genre, Fontana is remembered for breaking ground for women in science fiction.

    William Shatner, who famously portrayed Captain James Kirk in the Star Trek universe, mourned the loss of Fontana on Twitter on Tuesday, calling her a “pioneer.”

    “She was a pioneer,” he said. “Her work will continue to influence for generations to come.”

    In addition to her many Star Trek contributions, Fontana’s writing credits include episodes on The Waltons, Bonanza, Babylon 5 and The Six Million Dollar Man.

    The writer is survived by husband Dennis Skotak, Variety reported, and the family is asking that donations be sent to either the Humane Society, Best Friends Animal Society or the American Film Institute in lieu of flowers.
