Oh look, Chicken Thursday!

snail3Last Sunday I shared a zoomed in picture I took of a snail and when referring to the snail commented, "I spotted this tiny boy or girl snail (I'm sure someone out there can tell the difference so I'm covering my bases.)"

Well, apparently I didn't zoom in far enough (or maybe it was just because the water was cold) because Andr D. kindly emailed and let me know that snails are hermaphrodites. That means they need only look in a mirror when looking for a date.

However, I imagine being both genders is not all fun and games for snails. I wonder if snails:

  • come home at the end of the workday day wanting to just sit down and read the paper while still needing to talk about how their day was.
  • are forever internally conflicted wondering if they are being honest when they say that shell doesn't make their hips look wide.
  • endure silent car rides home after parties because they can't believe they said that harmless thing which is really no big deal anyway.
  • sit on a mall bench outside a store wondering why it's taking so long to buy some socks.

Of course, I am being ridiculous - as confirmed by the look on Grandma Cybersalt's face when I just read my first draft to her.

But really, why should I have all all the fun or get all the looks? If you have an idea why it's hard for snails to be hermaphrodites, just reply to this email and tell me and I'll share a collection of all the family-friendly submissions.

Speaking of the French (they do enjoy eating snails, you know) I just added a shopping cart to the site of a new client who sells a home school curriculum for learning French. He was having people email him to buy the course and ended up losing a lot of sales because they could not buy it right away when visiting. Anyway, since many of you are spending most of your time staying away from other people, maybe now is a good time to learn how to stay away from them in French!

Sunday greetings everyone - and welcome to issue #4600!

ss smarter every day donut flyA number of weeks ago I shared a picture I took in our backyard and in doing so misidentified an insect appearing in it.

Well, I've taken another picture that I am sharing here today. I spotted this tiny boy or girl snail (I'm sure someone out there can tell the difference so I'm covering my bases) on our carport wall today. So I brought it inside to see what I could capture with the macro tubes I have for my camera.

With every fiber of my being and everything crossed that I can cross, I hope that is actually a snail!

I like the world of the small, which is why I enjoyed the video I am sharing today. It is another from the "Smarter Everyday" YouTube channel. When we look into little things, we can see the power and wisdom of God in creation as much as we can in the big things.

Sunday greetings everyone!

Gaelynn LeaFrom time to time we are blessed to experience others whose "soul container" is so different than that of ours that the armor of our tired and numb way of valuing others (or ourselves) is pierced with a hot reminder of the equal value and "humanity" of every soul.

That is what happened when I watched this weeks video share a few days ago.

Oh look, Chicken Thursday!

Coquihalla Avalanche Snow ShedThere are many ways to show one's passion for chickens, or chicken as the case may be.

Here's a fun news story about one man's apparent passion for accurately labeling some parts of the chicken we eat. Yes, there are many things to enjoy about chickens, including that they are so tasty!
Click here watch "A bone to pick one boneless chicken wings."

In Cybersalt News, I have some sad news for some of you.  Adobe will end support of Flash Player on December 31, 2020. Why is that sad? Because that means on January 1st I will be taking the flash run "Bubble Shooter" game off of the Cybersalt site.

Do you know that it has been loaded almost 10.5 million times from the Cybersalt site. The game itself is 143,000 bytes in size. That means a total overall download of 1,501,500,000,000 bytes, which is over 1.5 terabytes.

So play bubble shooter while you can (you'll have to give it permission in your browser) at:

Oh look, Turkey Thursday! Happy Thanksgiving to all of our American subscribers and thank you, Walter, for reminding me!

TurkeyI don't think chickens will be jealous because of loosing the Cybersalt limelight for one Thursday of the year.

After all, it's a break from what is usually eating them up!

Sunday greetings everyone!

antipodes timI don't have a video to share with you today. Instead I thought I'd share a fun link with you.

When I was little, I was told that if I started digging a hole and kept going I would end up in China. As a child I didn't have access to the machinery required to test this. As an adult I don't want to test this because I have no room on my calendar to become a political prisoner. OK, I also still don't have access to the machinery to try it.

The fact is, after visiting the "Antipodes Map" website I now know where I'd end up and as you can see from the picture on the right, there would be a big flushing sound just before the end of my quest!

You can see where you would turn up at:

Oh look, Chicken Thursday!

Coquihalla Avalanche Snow ShedI've just returned from a business trip which involved taking a ferry off of our island and then a 4 hour drive along the Fraser River Valley and up and over the Coquihalla Summit, eventually arriving at the city of Kamloops.

I bought a dash cam for this trip and I may end up putting the trip footage online later. For now I will just share this screen shot from one of my favorite spots along the way: a snow-shed that protects the highway from avalanches. (Clicking the picture should open a bigger version.)

ss how to defog a windowSunday greetings everyone!

There was no Chicken Thursday mailing last week because Wednesday (my prep day) was my birthday and by the time I was done taking 2 naps, eating pizza and ice cream cake, and playing board games with family I decided to just turn in for the night.

So, yes, for those of you were betting on "make it" in the pool, I did make it to 55! Of course, now that I read what I did on my birthday I may have to bet on "won't make" in the next one..

Today's video share contains handy information for the age old problem (car age, that is) of a fogged up windshield. Click the image above or click here to watch it and you may be on your way a bit faster the next time you need to drive somewhere on a cold, damp morning!
