Recalling a friend who got into a NYC cab and found Lawrence Taylor's (NY Giants football star) paycheck stub on the floor. I forget the amount, but at the time it didn't seem as much as you'd think it would be.

Hmm, not a bad idea, but a single skateboard instead of two separate skates would likely be half the cost, and more convenient since it can be easily removed from your feet. Add a seat and handle-bars for stability, and you have modern (gas) scooters.

This young woman is blessed. While the ravens in the park next to my house are large enough to bring me many items, all I ever get are golf balls and shiny candy wrappers.

Just a few:

1. Long lines at big events for one sex while the other restroom is scarcely used.

2. Fathers with young daughters who need supervision going to potty. Or mothers with young sons, although that's usually not as problematic.

3. People who identify as something other than binary.

When I was a kid, we had a crow that hung around our house for years. My mom started feeding it table scraps, and soon enough it started to reciprocate by bringing us shiny trinkets and leaving them on the picnic table where my mother would put the scraps. The funniest thing was when it showed up with a key to OUR house!

1 Kings, Chapter 17
1 Now Elijah the Tishbite, from Tishbe[a] in Gilead, said to Ahab, “As the Lord, the God of Israel, lives, whom I serve, there will be neither dew nor rain in the next few years except at my word.”

2 Then the word of the Lord came to Elijah: 3 “Leave here, turn eastward and hide in the Kerith Ravine, east of the Jordan. 4 You will drink from the brook, and I have directed the ravens to supply you with food there.”

5 So he did what the Lord had told him. He went to the Kerith Ravine, east of the Jordan, and stayed there. 6 The ravens brought him bread and meat in the morning and bread and meat in the evening, and he drank from the brook.

Speaking of diy casting above, styrofoam makes for a great modern equivalent of lost wax casting. Although that is also a messy hobby, and potentially frustrating if the casting goes wrong since you would have to make the styrofoam again.

This is not too far from me (my late husband went to EKU). I think we got more snow in my town, though. Considering the enrollment is 13K, this service is pretty personal.

Glad to see they let it go. Something that magnificent should be returned back to it's home, IMO.

But I do have to wonder if it's got a steady diet of eating birds that land on the water? That mouth is huge...
