anything you, and the employers insurance are comfortable with. I 
worked with Orange Julius for 3 weeks once, making the Juliuses, 
until their insurance figured I'd get hurt by "something," like, 
would you believe, an electric mixer? GAD!
was in the late sixties so I couldn't kick much about it, but 
everyone enjoyed my Juliuses. :)
