My basement used to flood every spring and I had benches built to get everything off the floor. I live downslope of Browns Mountain that water flows underground to form a pond a block farther downslope. The pond filled up every spring and dried up into a mess of dead fish and frogs and smelled terrible. Housing developments started upslope and the underground water was diverted. I no longer have flooded basements every year. The city fixed the pond and it is full of city water all year round. What a lovely change.

Rain, rain, and more rain. I think this is the wettest June in history. My basement sump pump went out, so I woke up to a flooded basement the other morning. Luckily, I have nothing of value on the concrete floor. I used an old pool motor to pump out the water, put in a new sump pump, tinkered around with the placement, and am crossing my fingers. So far, so good. Praying to the sump pump god works!

Have a great week, coffee fans (and others).

Chris, as always, creative solutions that work! Happy holiday. Rest, relax, restore! Your students seem to be very loving; isn't teaching fun!

They do, Randall, but I won't take the risk. Lilies are poisonous to cats and the asparaguslike greens can hurt their gut - I've made some emergency trips to the vet to learn. So the cats get some cat grass or chives to chew on and my elderly neighbour is thrilled to get flowers. Everyone happy!

Your cats like flowers, Chris? Eats them? Sounds like you deserve a vacation. Yahoo!

Yay Plinius!

Yay! My last lessons before summer are over! I got kisses, hugs, a framed map of London and flowers (took those to a neighbour who hasn't got cats). Now for a lot of postponed chores and some holidays.

Of COURSE!  It started with the first shamans who were too effing lazy to help with the hunting and gathering.

The Old Pesticle has pages of explicit instructions of how and where the burnt offerings were to be eaten by the Levite priests.  Bet they were all overweight.

Now it's money.

Pretty funny, you ladies!

I just remembered something REALLY silly.  Remember when Gummy Bears first hit the market, and then they came out with Gummy Worms?  One store had Gummy Worms in a battered-looking plastic boxes that labeled A BAD CASE OF WORMS.
