I've never been to Italy, but I imagine that many of the buildings (especially in the small towns) are ancient and not sturdy enough to withstand larger quakes. Scary!

The photos coming out of Italy are so sad. So much rubble. And the mayor of Amatrice says his town is no more:/

I can't believe zika is in the US.  Makes me wonder if it's always been here and we just didn't know to look for it.  It would be so scary to be a pregnant woman (or a woman who wants to have children) in one of the affected states.

Yeah. The information said (or not said) is pretty scary. A mosquito can bite someone who is infected (coming from the south) and be infected, and in turn infect x others?

 

Yes.

I know:/ It's really sad to see the photos of the babies born with microcephaly.

Lily wins with the cheesy tots! Yum!

I have leftover chicken and salad greens. 

Pav - I would be happy to be at home reading, too. I've not heard of your current read. Will look it up. 

Minn - no zika here (yet!) But we've got several different tick viruses available, if you're interested ;)

Now that you know you can leave, you can't think of a reason to stay, daizy?

I'm just done with dealing with the public. It's easy to feel like a master of none in this field. And it's a beach day. Why are we at work?

Wednesday.  I'm almost half done with the week.  I can do this.

 

I'm wondering if I can, Pav...

Morning Chatters.

Got in touch with my friend last night. He's making a list of the things he needs.

It's kinda funny. I'm trying to volunteer to help him while he's volunteering at the shelter to help others while his house is under water.  

Be what it may, I get a chance to play with mud this weekend.

Minn - so glad you reached him. It's kind of him to be of service while his own life is also full of hardship. I'm glad  they are all OK.

Are any of you chatters also blog readers? If so, what's the best way to find blogs on a particular topic? I know I can use the google - but I thought the brilliant minds in here might have a shortcut.

Instead of me telling you what you should do, why not search "how to search for blog"?
You will find lots of blog search engine. Try a few and see what you like.

^ And this is why I asked this question in here. I had no idea there was a blog search engine. Awesome. And it didn't occur to me to ask the question about searching for a blog! LOL Thanks Minn :) Perfect.

Thanks Lily. I only read a few and they relate to food. I have no idea how I found them in the first place!

Ha ha! We're all in trouble if I have to belly dance. Unless, perhaps the rains would fall to get me to STOP. There's a thought...

We need that rain up here, Minn. There are communities all around me that are in severe drought status. We are on water restriction in my community right now. It's the worst it's been since ~ 2002. We had little precip last winter and now we're paying the price. 

*googles rain dances*

I thought the rain spirits favor belly dancers.

Oh boy. That's not good news for me :P

My start of the day was an investigation into a "direct drive bung entering mixer".

Things can only go up from there right?

It certainly sounds like it could only go up from there. I googled it because I could not fathom what the heck that combination of 5 words I understand individually could possibly mean when strung together like that. I learned about drilling today :)

I kid you not one of the procedures has this in there: "Leave the bung hole alone"

HA HA HA HA HA!! This made my day :D

watched my first match of women's 7s rugby yesterday. holy **** they're tough.  

(recording the rest of the tourney today, so please don't anybody tell me what happens!)

All I know is that I don't want to be the hooker in a scrum.

I only played rugby a few times in my life. The first advice I got in my first game: "Watch all your limbs and guard all your orifices!"

That is sound advice for so many of life's moments :P
