For once an honest company.
The Shopping Bag
A while back I went grocery shopping I normally take my own bags for putting the groceries in. Some of the bags I have made myself others I bought at a variety of stores. I started taking my own bags for groceries and other things many years ago. Using my own bags really cut down on the pile of paper and plastic bags at home.
This trip I took two or three shopping bags with me to the grocery store. When I got to the checkout stand and went to hand them my bags it seemed that one of the bags I thought I had brought along was missing. I was a bit confused as to why one of my bags was missing.
Hot Chocolate and Condensed Milk
Standard Hot Chocolate brewed with hot water tends to be a bit thin to my tastes.
Many years ago in a different life and a few careers ago, the company I worked for would serve hot chocolate in the evening at the 9 pm mug-up. Since the plant was cold the hot chocolate was welcome, but the cooks made it literally scalding hot. A bit too warm to my taste and burning my mouth with the closest hospital about 650 miles away by air, burns did not seem to be the best thing to do.
Neighbors new wind speed indicator
My neighbors down the block a bit added what looks like a new wave or maybe Steam Punk Wind Speed Indicator.
Or maybe they just cleaned out the kitchen drawers.
Christmas Trees for sale in January??
Seen in Seattle, January 20, 2013.
Not really sure if they have trees left over they still need sell or if they are getting a head start on the competition for 2013.
Tarter Sauce in little cups
Way back when I was a kid and we would go to a fast food place (back then in the small town I lived in it was Colonel Sanders and Kentucky Fried Chicken)
The various sauce things were in big pump things and you took a few little paper cups and pumped the sauce into the little paper cups. After several years we had “progress” and advanced to individual servings in plastic cups with a foil seal.
Crossing close on the bow of another boat and throwing large wake seems to be a trait of large power boats. This trait has been debated by my friends for some time, were these people born rude? Do they work at not being courteous to their fellow boaters? A legal note on large wake, you are responsible for any damage caused by your wake.
Palastal which is owned (according to the CG) by Jerome R. Baruffi, DDS a dentist in the Southcenter / Tukwila area. Dr. Jerome R. Baruffi, DDS made the mistake of crossing the bow of some friends boat while Palastal was throwing up a big wake, the bad news was that my friends had their camera and got these pictures of Dr. Baruffi’s boat. Poor form doctor.
In defense of Dr Baruffi, my friends said he was not as bad as some of the “little blasters and the big egos” of many powerboats. He was just the worst photographed. . .
Running with your fenders down is a major social crime on the water. However you do entertain your fellow boaters and from time to time will get pictures of your boat posted to the internet.
Dr. Baruffi, DDS throws up a big wake with Palastal. Very poor form Dr. Baruffi.
