It has been said that all disease is congestion and all cure is circulation.  Or something like that.  Congestion and Circulation.  Reminds me of plumbing.  How many people take plumbing for granted?  How many people appreciate it when water comes into their house when and where it is summoned?  ONLY when and where summoned?  And of course, the corollary blessing:  water draining from their homes when and where indicated?  This is a BLESSING, and don't you ever forget it!  Don't take it for granted.  OR you might find yourself living in a forty-something house with tired plumbing.  Did you know that forty years ago they made the drains that connect your house plumbing to the street plumbing from clay?  Do you know that in the midwest there is ALWAYS a dry spell in the summertime, and during that dry spell the tree roots invade the clay drains for water.  This means the clay drain that runs from the house to the street does not work properly.  You figure out the middle part.  Who knew plumbers were heroes?  That when they come to your house, fix the problem and leave, you are SO HAPPY to run around the house, flushing?  Be grateful for your plumbing.  While we're at it, be grateful for everything!  Don't take ANYTHING for granted.  I'm just saying......


  1. Just wanted to say hi and congratulations on your new blog!!! I, too, love quilting and MacBook Pros, but can't say the same about Harleys ;-)
