Second Use For Everything (“SUFE")

Lord knows which of the five other seniors on my floor needs a four-gallon water dispenser.

But who am I to judge (Answer: Chris Greaves!)

So I drilled about a dozen ¼-inch holes in the bottom using my electric drill.

I cut off the top to make the sort of funnel I would need were I to get serious about establishing my own ice-cream production facility in my apartment.

Naturally the funnel fits inside the now truncated bottle.

From my ice-cream tub (see!) compartments in the larger vermicomposting bin I extract and empty some matrix, worms and eggs on top of some old shredded paper in the new small-footprint vermicomposter bin.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch ... note the false advertising meant to make you feel GOOD about buying water in plastic bottles which are then re-built using energy to save you the bother of turning on your kitchen faucet.

Clear Thinking

I can’t understand this; see if you can.

The current scare is over a virus called Zika. OK. It may be (and I suspect is) very dangerous. After about three weeks of news reports, indications are that the virus can be transmitted amongst humans.

If you are not careful.

So be careful.

Because the Zika virus can be transmitted from one human being to another.

With disastrous consequences if you happen to be a pregnant woman.

So if you ARE a pregnant woman, don’t contemplate going to Carnival and kissing as many people as you possibly can.

Instead, wait at home for your family to return from carnival where they spent their time kissing as many people as they possibly could.

And welcome them home with a kiss.

Whaaaaat? Surely this year is the one year that Gadelha should be urging a cessation of public kissing?
