Through one of the book reviews I read there, I found something sure to please your inner cartography geek: the David Rumsey Historical Map Collection, with over 11,000 antique maps digitized for your
Quick notes for Vogon:
- the movie with all the hands is Quicksilver Highway;
- Topsy-Turvy Tomato Planter and Gro-Pole
I received a pre-paid Shutterfly card as a Christmas gift a few years ago. It was due to expire at the end of the month and I had no idea what I'd want to use the 50+ 4x6" print credits for until my little sister mentioned she was planning to make a scrapbook for Laurel with photos from our vacation last month. Thanks to that, I used them up and spent a total of -- drum roll please -- $4.92 for 60 4x6" prints that my sister will be receiving in a couple of days. I am a happy consumer.
Vogon bought a bushel box full of roasted Hatch chile peppers over the weekend that he prepared and froze in ice trays we have just for the task. I love the smell of them, but the box leaked in the kitchen so the floor was sticky until I broke down the wet box and bagged it, then used an old sponge to wipe up the worst of it until I mop. I'm not sure when I started to dislike mopping, but I suspect it has to do with the style of mop we have. We have a string-style mop, which I've only used in very large spaces like camp dining halls, and I prefer a sponge mop for home use.
I'd been thinking about buying a Swiffer WetJet to use in between full-on mopping and regularly in the bathrooms, but I don't like the continuing cost of disposable cleaning pads and cleaning solution. Now I'm trying to decide whether a mop with a microfiber pad (such as the StarMop) or a terry cloth pad would be better. Assuming they're the same price, which would you choose and why?
