Today is the Birthday of the Urinal

Andrew Rankin patented the urinal in 1866. Trivia piece for you.

Bath & Body Works 5 for $15 anti-bacterial soap....we love the foaming. Yankee Candle...all on sale and buy two, get one free. These are few of my favorite things....da da da da.....

How fast do you want to swim?

Sounds like an interesting book! I love the Michener books so this might be right up my alley.
"As the former head of Fourth Estate books, Christopher Potter published blockbuster science titles like Dava Sobel’s Longitude. For his own, elegant debut, Potter set out to write a history of the universe. And if that project sounds ambitious to you, imagine pulling it off in less than 300 pages.

Like the Powers of Ten postcard books you sometimes find in museum gift shops, Potter’s book, You Are Here, begins with impossibly small things (like quarks and electrons), ends with incomprehensibly large ones (stars, galaxies, and the universe itself), and considers string theory, general relativity, and the paradoxes of quantum mechanics along the way. Potter has a knack for rattling off the latest scientific facts without eliding the deeper questions they raise, and he ends up with the mother of them all: Why is there something rather than nothing? That, Potter admits, is a cosmic mystery that science may never solve."

Be careful how hot you drink your tea or coffee. Just a lil PSA for you.

I love this idea. Anyone who knows me realizes I'm not a dog lover but she sure looks comfy.

Until next time....hook 'em!
