Potatoes with onions in background [ john ]
Item #1: Free lawn mowing
Rabbit hopping is gaining fans in Australia, with hopes of hopping to the top of the podium in international competition. When not in training, they can clip your grass.
When in Idaho, one of the students was a judge for rabbit shows, but for form, not jumping.
We raised rabbits for eating. Had them in cages with boxes underneath to catch waste, and so had to mow the lawn. Bummer.
Item #2: On the road
The photo shows a modern driver sitting on the right side with his passenger on the left. What do you do?
The recent earthquakes in California have brought out all sorts of stories. There always seems to be a reference to the San Francisco quake of April 18, 1906. The movie at the following link was taken four days prior.
A Trip Down Market Street
It is 12 minutes long, but there are two things noticed early on; (1) steering wheels of the autos are on the right side, and (2) drivers change lanes without rear-view mirrors, or it seems, without looking at all.
According to this article [ LINK ] Ford introduced left-hand steering in 1908, and the Marmon Co. introduced rear-view mirrors in 1911.
Item #3: Parents on drugs?
I saw this photo and wondered if the adults nearby have ever heard of “aftershocks.”?
I guess the child still has both legs,
so all is well.
Item #4: Cat in the hat
What is the cat wearing?
Item #5: the weather
Don’t know if this is good or bad.
Often at this time of year we will have high temperature in the 90s.
In the last 4 weeks we hit 82° a couple of times but mostly the high 70s. We heat and cool with electricity. June was lower than any month in 2018, and neither the heater nor the AC has come on for a week. We’ve no hot temps forecast through next week. In fact it is cooling a little.
Okay, so it is good that the utility bill is down.
There are about 6 more weeks that hot temps could come and stay for awhile. For now, let’s call it a cool wave. We wait with bated breath.
And that, for this week, is the not so nasty news.
