    “Photograph” comes from “writing with light.” I just thought of cuneiform writing, which looks like it was scratched onto wood. Like the writing instrument had to be SHARP, like an ax, but smaller, of course.

    Tie the grain, vegetable, and fruit bags tight so that the rats can’t get to them.

    Looks like Max has learned to recognize Wally’s voice, and doesn’t like the idea of separation from him; he understands “Good night.”
    In yesterday’s strip, Max looked happy to be around other children at the restaurant, even though they couldn’t interact. Just happy to see other children around him.

    One can’t expect strong bonding (ties) with brothers on Vanuatu using Nguna, unless the siblings live isolated lives; Efate is northeast of Australia.

    “The life of the flesh is in the blood.” — Leviticus 17:11
    William Harvey (1578-1657) is known for discovering the blood’s circulation in the body. And French anatomists earlier had made discoveries about venous valves. Information about blood transfusions traveled slowly in those centuries, since bloodletting was still practiced in the 1700s here in America.

    Home Builder is told, “You not build house here. Come fail perk test.” Meaning, the soil isn’t good for a house foundation to be laid into.

    I know that “milli” means one-thousandth of something, but at first I interpreted “3400 mg” as under one gram, as if it read “340 mg.”
    What about using salt to make water boil faster? Did our ancestors, who lived without electricity, use it that way as they heated water over their fires? We don’t consume salt used this way, unless we intend to add water-absorbing food such as barley, couscous, rice or quinoa, to the pot. In those cases, no draining of the water in a colander takes place.

    No one else commented on Sam Harris, so I went looking for online stories about him. So it was no mistake, no prank, that the 82-year-old radio announcer got the appointed role of deputy marshal. He’s been in the US a few times, he says, but never before in Kansas (let alone western Kansas, where Dodge City is). Avid angler, fishing event organizer. Forty-five years on radio, so millions of people hear him. And he interviews some of them. That’s how he got the deputy marshal appointed role.

    I’m assuming that cheddar cheese, which is more orange in color than other cheeses, wasn’t used in Gladys’ homemade mac ’n cheese.

    Probably most of us do refer to a live animal as “it”, especially if we don’t know if the animal is male or female. I’ve never forgotten one of my English teachers using “The dog lost its collar” as an example of correctly using “its” versus “it’s” which means, “it is.”
