Item #1: Eggs
How long does she have to sit on an egg for it to hatch?
‘Ice eggs’ covered a small section of a Finland beach on Sunday, Nov. 7th.
It was a small area and the ice eggs were smallish. The photo below is from the article, but the place is Nayda in Siberia and it was in 2016. Some were 3 feet across and they went for 11 miles.
Item #2: Thrill
This one is from Washington State, but there was at least one other this week someplace. Car going airborne, I mean.The top car in the above photo has Oregon plates. It is double parked in a driveway in Walla Walla, WA.
The yellow slash points to a large rock. This was a landscape item placed at the entrance to the drive. The working theory is that the car hit the rock, moved it, and caused the car to become airborne.
It is a large 4-door Jeep.
Late word is that the driver was having a medical issue.
Item #3: Toasted toaster
Does your toaster need cleaned out?
Most have small trays that slide out. However, there are things that do not fall through. Earlier this week a piece of bread broke away and lodged along the side.
I emptied the little tray. Then I gently shook the whole thing – a 4 slice model. No luck. I turned the toaster upside down and shook some more. With a little prodding from a wood stick – think popsicle – the large piece fell out.
After the cleaning – nothing worked.There are solutions. Photos above are not from me.
The last two mornings I fried breed in an iron pan.
Nancy has found a replacement. This is a 2-slice model from a divorcee. She got the toaster. It bothers her to use it.
