610 - ponderings of a small brain

While others are grappling with more pressing issues like – is this the death of capitalism and what happens if someone who only applied for a passport for the first time last year becomes VP of the most powerful nation in the world, my thoughts lately have been revolving around more domestic matters.


Is it better to put cutlery in the dishwasher pointing up or down? Does it negate using all that hot water to then have a clean, tine up fork plucked from the basket with grubby mitts?


How long has it taken us to notice the down size in the egg packaging from dozen’s to ten’s?


Ladybirds sited in the nettle patch in the garden today – yippee, that’s a good sign isn’t it?

And even:

As a Sri Lankan woman told me yesterday, it means someone is thinking good thoughts about you – who the hell was thinking a truckload of good things about the NB at 4 am this morning?

What’s occupying your tiny minds?

Have a good Sunday.

But these are all worth pondering. Preoccupying issues.
I look for signs and portents every day. I reckon the appearance of ladybirds is also a sign suggesting one take off to Argentina, wear bright red lipstick and dance the tango. This instant.

My thoughts today have mainly been on grass and it's spring growth-rate, ie., before my eyes.
Mowing mowing mowing.
and also on how lethal ride-on mowers are and why aren't the seats covered in velcro to prevent the driver sliding off when mowing a slope.
I have also been hoping Bill Leak doesn't die and wondering what part in his injury was played by Singo Of The Bad Reputation.

The dishes are definitely worth pondering. People have killed themselves because they haven't thought this one through! I was taught to put the pointy bits down, always, - you won't get them dirty with your hands and you'll save yourself getting injured.

Lol... they used to only have 6-egg and 12-egg cartons, now they also have 8-egg, 10-egg, 15-egg, 18-egg and 20-egg cartons. I'm from an egg carton manufacturer so I know a little bit. I don't think anyone's trying to trick you, it's just about giving people more choice. Cheers

Howard at the time of writing this in Australia supermarkets had traditionally stocked only 2 standard sizes -6 and 12. Consumers were slow to notice the change in carton size because they looked almost identical to the full dozen size.
