the daily science experiment, 3-24-20

Long ago Somebody came up with the idea of taking a couple hydrogen atoms and an atom of oxygen, connected* them and *POOF!* it became a water molecule. Fresh water is great for drinking, mixing with Kool Aid, brushing teeth, making ice cubes and, if you want, steam. Homer Simpson took this a step further…… Continue reading the daily science experiment, 3-24-20

WARNING! Saucy content! (This is an opinion piece by our science editor, Jacque Verbanq) ———————————————————— For this was on seynt Volantynys day Whan euery bryd cometh there to chese his make.*   I thought I’d jump ahead of the misery which is Valentine’ Day.

the daily purge 1-24-20

My Sweet Rib* puttered through the cabinettes below our bathroom sinks the other day. Among the many items** she found unworthy of keeping were several pill boxes. Getting older is a skill – a delicate ballet of eating poorly, drinking excessively and, eventually, popping pills to reverse the effects of the first two. The top…… Continue reading the daily purge 1-24-20

the daily lazy 12-17-19

If The Purging Lutheran has an issue with my therapy, which is what these daily posts are a part of, it’s working up the gumption to make an effort. I find that somedays are better left to the ‘professionals’, them what have already writ something I can copy, cut and paste to my advantage. This…… Continue reading the daily lazy 12-17-19

the daily purge 11-19-19

Here is a popular book people have been buying since 1992. The Purging Lutheran picked this up sometime in ‘two-thousand-and-clackity-clack’. My Sweet Rib and I read it (skimmed through it) to find the astonishing answers of who we really were, or are, or what we want to be. These are the options laid out by…… Continue reading the daily purge 11-19-19

the daily pork 11-1-19

The author of Know Your Groceries is named Frederick Blaine Humphrey. He was born in New York ~1876 and died in California, 1952. ‘Humphrey’ is not a common surname. Please do not mistake him for Minnesotan politician, Hubert Horatio Humphrey. It’s an easy-to-make error. Another easy doink! is to mistake Frederick Blaine Humphrey for professional typesetter, Hubert Blaine…… Continue reading the daily pork 11-1-19

the daily boat 10-18-19

The Purging Lutheran came across this title years ago while soifing the interwobblenet. It’s a real live book how to avoid huge ships while operating a smaller ship. Not being a boat owner I’m not at liberty to comment on its contents. But! There are a slew of reviews at Amazon from readers who appear…… Continue reading the daily boat 10-18-19
