i was out in my jammies and slippers at 2am to check on the progress of ther 3 water buckets on teh front porch-- 2 of which had REGULAR bottles FILLED --.... with saltwater in themTHEN CAPPED AND SUBMERGED IN THE FILLED WATER BUCKET. as pRerscribed by "THE INTERNET" -- I WAS TOLD...BY SAID INTERNET.. THAT IF I FILLED A WATER BOTTLE WOIH WATER AND SALT AND PUT IT IN A NORMAL BUCKET OF WATER FOR THE HORSES, IT WOULD NOT FREEZE... WITH GREAT EXCITEMENT I DID ALL THAT- AND GOT UP AT 2AM IN THE VERY COLD... TO CHECK ON THE PROGRESS.. I AM ASTOUNDED TO REPORT THE ENTIRE 3 BUCKETS HAVE TOTALLY DISAPPEARED.-- I EVEN WENT OUT AGAIN -- FULLY AWAKE AND DRESSED AT 4:30 TO SEE IF I HAD BEEN MISTAKEN... NO---THEY AE GONE.
SO MUCH FOR MY SCIENIFFIC EFFORT.. SO FAR......
I CAN SEE HOW IT HAPPENED- SOMEBODY CAME TO THE 3 PAILS OF WATER AND FIGURED THEY DID NOT BELONG THERE-- QUITE CORRECTLTY---AND WE DO HAVE RULES AT CRAZY ACRES
IF IT IS BROKEN.. FIX IT
IF IT SMELLS PICIK UP
IF IT IS FULL.. EMPTY IT
IF IT IS EMPTY FILL IT... AND THINGS LIKE THAT.
MY 3 WATER BUCKETS MUST HAVE FALLEN INOT ONE OF THOSE CATAGORIES- --- WHY ON EARTH WOULD ANY SANE PERSON SET OUT 3 FULL WATR BUCKETS WHERE NO ANIMAL COUD DRINK OUT OF THEM?
I WONDER WHERE THEY DECIDED THOSE BELONG...
SO I HAVE TO START AT THE BEGINNING AGAIN-- (BEFORE IT WARMS UP????) FIND 3 BUCKETS NOT IN CRITICAL USE..
GOES TO SHOW YOU WHY SO MANY LABEL MAKERS ARE DSOLD.
I CAN NOT SEE HOW THAT WORKS... BUT IF IT EVEN HELPS DOWN TO 20 DEGREES, IT COUDL BE LOVELY !!
THE ONLY THING ICAN THINK OF IS SALT WATER FREEZES AT A LOWER TEMP THAN REGULAR WATER.. AND ANY TME YOU HAVE AN INEQUALITY SOMETHING WEIRD CAN HAPPEN SO IT BEARS STUDYING.
COULD BE IT IS SOME STRANGE "NEWTONS LAW" KIND OF THING... LIKE THESE MITSUBISHI HEATERS WE HAVE THAT WILL TAKE THE HEAT OUT OF THE OUTSIDE MINUS 10 DEGREE AIR , AND CREATE 72 DEGREES HERE IN THE HOUSE.
WHICH STARTS ME SINGING THE DONALD SWANN SONG
"HEAT CANNOT, OF ITSELF, PASS FROM ONE BODDY TO A HOTTER BODY-
HEAT CAN'T PASS FROM THE COOLER TO THE HOTTER
'CAUSE THE HOTTER BODY'S HEAT WILL PASS TO THE COOLER
YOU CAN TRY IT IF YOU LIKE BUT YOU FAR BETTER NOTTER
THEN IT GETS INTO NOT BEING ABLE TO TALK TO SCIENTISTS
BECAUSE THEY CAN'T TALK TO ANYONE ELSE- POOR DEARS.
THEY( SWANN AND FLANDERS)
ARE VERY GOOD WITH A "PLAY ON WORDS" AS THE BRITISH ARE SO NOTED FOR
ANOTHER OF THEIRS..
"HAVE SOME MADIERA, MY DEAR"- SO SHE MADE....
UP HER MIND
AND A DASH FOR THE DOOR.
THEY DO THAT OFTEN.
Cool that it was mentioned in today’s DD about playing ukulele at the nursing homes. That is exactly what some of us do! We have a volunteer community band and we play concerts at the local nursing homes and senior centers (besides playing in town parks for the public). We have 4 of our band members with excellent singing voices who mimic the barbershop quartet and play ukuleles at the same nursing homes and senior centers on separate dates from our concerts. These folks get several entertainments a year from us along with many other entertainment groups going to their places. It lights their faces up and is such a good feeling knowing that we gave them a few hours enjoyment!!

SO BACK TO THE FROZEN BUCKETT PROBLEM--
WHEN I SET THAT UP, I WAS LAZY AND MIGHT HAVE BLOWN TEH STUDY ANYWAY- I KNOW GOLDIE- OUR GHOST OF THE LEFTHAND DRAWER-- OFTEN CORREDTS MY THINKING BY DIDACTIC DEMONSTRATIONS, I OPTED TO USE REGULAR SALT IN THE 2 SALTED BOTTLESWHEN I DID HAVE ACCESS TO KOSHER SALT TOO. MAYBE GOLDIE IS SAYING .. USE ONE OF EACH KIND.
HEAVEN HELP US-
WELL MAKE THAT ---CP'S HELP US..... THIS IS THE SHORT MONTH WHEN CHICKEN BRICKS ARE ONLY AT 62% AND TEH SHATTING IS SUNDAY-- IF YOU CAN...... CLICKING ON THAT CHICKEN ON OUR WEB AND DONATING $10 IS OUR MAIN SOURCE OF INCOME THAT EMNABLES US TO DONATE THESE DOGS AND KEEP THE PAYROL GOING...
SO IF YOU CAN--- 954 OF YOU READ THIS FOOL EMAIL DAILY-- FIGURE IT IS A $10 A MONTH SUBSCRIPTION- WE HAVE A FEW "QUICK PIKS" YET TO ENTER HERE FROM PEOPLE WHO SEND THEIR CHICKEN BRICK DONATION HERE, BUT WE NEED $10 from AS MANY OF THE 954 OF YOU THAT CAN.
