Power adapters come and go in a home full of electronics. When The Purging Lutheran finds one, it is his duty to find the accompanying modern doo-dad it powers. Chances are I’m not going to find it because there are sooooooo many toys, pads, miniature computers, games, and other pluggable etceteras crammed in boxes or…… Continue reading the daily purge 9-30-16

A week or two ago The Purging Lutheran purged a vase (vās). Today I purge a vase (voz). The last one was a smaller one used for delicate flowers and could, under certain circumstances, be used to drink fruity tropical drinks from. Today’s is a much more hardy, muscular vessel which holds big, bulky flowers…… Continue reading the daily purge 9-28-16

But I like to move about…… Continue reading the daily purge 9-26-16

My Sweet Rib and her The Purging Lutheran unearthed at least three pitchers. Not the kind of pitcher for whom you would derisively chant, “We want a pitcher, not…… Continue reading the daily purge 9-22-16

One of the reasons why I have made so many poor meals has been hiding in plain sight all these years. I had never taken into account the measure of volume change known as compressibility. Ingredients like water, sugar or sugared water will measure properly in a cup while some ingredients like vegetables and fruits,…… Continue reading the daily purge 9-21-16

It’s been my experience that people like articles about backpacks. While that may seem awkward, please consider these other counterintuitive factoids: • The majority of people have an above average number of legs. • Maine is the state closest to Africa. • The more Swiss cheese you have, the more holes you have. The more holes you…… Continue reading the daily purge 9-20-16
