      ...salt mill



      Saw one at Sur La Table and decided to get it. Bought a matching pepper mill to match. Never knew that Peugeot was in the culinary industry.

      What are some other car manufacturers that did something similar? Honda and their lawnmowers come to mind.

      Mitsubishi and Hyundai are two conglomerates that built everything from TVs to tankers. Saab obviously started out with planes. Opel had its beginnings with sewing machines and bicycles. Skoda was founded when Vaclav Klement found himself unable to obtain spare parts for his German-made bicycle and started a repair shop.

      The previous owners of our house left behind a Peugeot tricycle. It's been pretty reliable actually.

      Are there two dogs playing in the background? I cannot figure out what is going on between your family and the car.

      Kawasaki Heavy Industries, motorcycles are the smallest thing they do/make. They built the Boeing 777 factory, launch satellites from their own rocket launching stations, make monorails and huge tanker ships of all kinds with Kawasaki's own propulsion systems, robotics of all kinds and all kinds of "green energy" projects.
