OK, I hear you. Have cousins there, they tell me how
wonderful it is. Wish I'd moved decades ago. I think
it was 80 deg in LA, if I heard correctly, today.

80 deg ! Horrors! That's 30 over the maximum comfort level. Forty is better, thirty better still. Thirty's getting down to jacket weather. (50F = 10C; 30F = -1.1C)

bexter, just for fun I googled 'cutlery worship', and found these among other listings (I wasn't about to go to either site, I can tell you!):

der of the Spoon | Facebook Thou can worship to any sort of Spoon, they all lead to the one true spoon. Any prayer counts. No false idols- that means other cutlery ...

False Idols - Baedon's Curious Web Jan 5, 2011 ... Cutlery Sales Person(s): We have been informed of another evil which threatens all who worship The Almighty Spork. ...

I deleted part of the F-book address, since in my preview it looked like it might be clickable.

a grass skirt.

-2 C here at the moment with expected highs of...wait for it...0C this afternoon! Wahay shorts and t-shirts all the way! Seriously though that was the worst 'expected highs of' I have heard in a long while...it is normally used when the temperature increases a lot or if it is ACTUALLY HOT frown
and Jackie
I am dumbfounded...there are cutlery worshippers? I wonder what other things get worshipped (I especially liked the 'do not worship false idols ie OTHER CUTLERY')...hmmm thinking further do they sacrifice pasta and soup?

bexter--I am assuming those sites were satirical; but I still don't care to go find out for sure!

I'll be getting to bed here before too much longer. I have set the dishwasher to run at about 5 a.m., and for the first time in a few years have left the bathtub faucet dripping slightly: it was 7F (-13.8C) a couple of hours ago. We seldom get down into the single digits even at night, and I would rather not wake up to frozen pipes in the morning. Er--morning that includes daylight, I mean.
