2 year supply?......doesn't it get like rock crystals after a soggy humid summer?


It never gets humid in the Dallas area. Summers are cool and crisp there.


Bazinga!




We got these doohickies down hur that keeps the tempachur in da haus pretty kumfortabl no matter what's goin on outdoors.
 
In any case, we store the 'supply' in the Butler's Pantry, not in the Carriage House; no problems before, none anticipated this time.

Wikipedia:
I use it often to find out stuff like most recently: Who did "Never Been Any Reason", which after all this time is still played on "classic" radio. BTW, the group was "Head East" and the writer was Michael A. Somorville, who was not with the band for long. The Wikipedia story also explains how 2 mini moogs were used (by mistake) to create that unique sound. 
 
It is from the album Flat as a Pancake, and there is a Roadfood connection. The diner shown on the album back is the Rite-Way Diner in Olivette, MO. The diner now operates as Olivette Diner. I don't see many reviews for it on this site, although other sites rate it very highly.
 
Pre computer and Wikipedia, I'd have never learned that without buying beers or lunch for my retired DJ friend..........and even he may not have known.

Modern shoe laces. As a kid, I used to have to replace them after a couple of months. Now, they mostly last the life of the shoe.

In an earlier post, I mentioned Dr Rub BBQ sauce. In the paper I see that the "original" guy is trying to crowd fund $75k, to restart under a new name. His former "handshake" partners think that he has no right to the name, so he has changed it........bla, bla, bla.
 
Sounds like a lot of drama over a sauce that could be easily reproduced by Kraft, and that was never produced in commercial quantities. They made and sold a few 5 gallon batches.
 
I will not be investing.

Light Keeper Pro ... fixes Christmas light strands (yes, yes, I know ... Tfeh).
This thing works great.  Really a surprise.  I should have gotten one years ago. Like it says: Plug - Click - Fixed.  It really is that easy. 
The only "gun" you can legitimately use to fix problems and reduce stress at the holidays.

Indeed, I love Wiki.
 
Sure, every now and then some vandal makes a stupid edit (I once corrected an obscene, gratuitous, irrelevant remark about his son in the entry about John Foster Dulles) but studies have shown - because of the open editing - that there are fewer factual errors in Wikipedia than in the Encyclopedia Britannica.
 
And, the really cool thing is that one can 'fact check' any entry by using a search engine.  I am so grateful to Al Gore for inventing the internet!
