"Horse manure's not that bad. I don't even mind the word manure. It's newer, which is good, and a ma in front of it. Ma-Newer. When you consider the other choices, manure is actually pretty refreshing." - George Costanza
Thursday greetings! Thought I'd favor you with a quote from the man I love to hate. Today will be a bit of this and that - a sort of stream of consciousness if you will. Let's see where it takes us...
Well, you would never have known it was June here yesterday - it was so cold and grey, it felt more like October. I did manage another very long walk (close to 5 km) and a bit of puttering in my yard, including spreading around my last bag of sheep manure. It's supposed to rain here today, (again) so at least I don't have to bother with watering it in... so I guess it's all good, depending how you look at it.
All this poo talk has reminded me that one of the gift shops at the African Lion Safari, which I visited last month, was selling paper products made from elephant dung. The line is called The Great Elephant Poo Poo Paper. These are not my pictures though, for some reason I didn't take any - even though I spent quite a bit of time admiring the product line.

Are you a migraine sufferer? I am and it can turn a perfectly good day into a really shi#%y one (hehe - that's a pretty good segway, if I say so myself!)

Last week I read in the news (and one faithful reader also sent me the link) that scientists have recently determined migraines have a genetic link. Interestingly, one of the three genes discovered are exclusive to women. I find this fascinating and while it's still not a cure, or even a diagnostic tool at this point, it is one more piece in the puzzle.
And lastly, further to yesterday's post, I watched video footage of the eclipse on a number of websites last evening, and happened to find this interesting mosaic of the event compiled by Marko Posavec in Koprivnica, Croatia in my travels.
Hoping you have a great day!
