DROPPED MY WEDDING BAND DOWN THE DRAIN!
Remember Apollo 13, where the astronaut’s wife is showering at the beginning of the movie and drops her wedding band down the drain – an omen? If only she had seen this. (Thanks, Roger.)
Twenty seconds to start your day. (Thanks again, Roger.)
You will recall the amazing Sherwin-Williams house-visualizer I have previously linked you to. And you probably know that iPhone app where you hold the phone up to some music that’s playing and it figures out what the music is (and offers to sell you the album). Well now comes Sherwin-Williams free ColorSnap app. Take a picture with your iPhone, move your finger around the phone to the spot you want to match – and voila! It tells you exactly what color that is and suggest some secondary colors that would go nicely with it.
LUKE ASKS FOR THE SAME RIGHTS AS HIS SISTER
California voters rescinded the right to marry, but if the vote were held again today my guess is it probably would go the other way. People’s minds are opening, just as they once opened to allow mixed-race marriages of people like Justice and Mrs. Clarence Thomas. Ads like this one, from the Empire State Pride Agenda, are part of the reason.
Stewart Dean: ‘Ho-hum. Right now my VW TDI Diesel Jetta when driven with mild hypermiling gets 65-70 MPG locally and 50-55MPG on the highway. That’s right: better mileage locally because my speed is lower, and speed kills . . . your fuel mileage. Travelling at 55, I get 50-55MPG, at 65-70, I get 40-45MPG. Air resistance is a killer.
In silly old Europe with high fuel taxes, half the cars are diesels. High mileage is here now: buy a diesel.’
Quote of the Day
In 1800, 75% of [an American's] working man's expenditures went for food alone. By 1850, that had dropped to 50%. Today it is a little more than 11%.~The Wall Street Journal, September 20, 1996
