egg whites, they’re not just for eating

Lilian, my friend in Malta, forwards information that simply has to be passed along. Will we ever need to use egg whites in this way? One never knows, does one? The story: *A young man sprinkling his lawn and bushes with pesticides wanted to check the contents of the barrel to see how much pesticide […]


On a very HOT and HUMID 99 degree day last month the train I was scheduled to take was 90 minutes late. The three Amtrak employees at the counter couldn’t agree on the reason it was late or exactly when it was coming. Okay. And so the train came and we ticket holders lined up […]
