Hey! Less of these ageist cracks, if you don't mind. Centigrade is alive and well with some of us:<BR> <BR><A HREF="http://www.marshallinstruments.com/degc.html" TARGET=_blank>http://www.marshallinstruments.com/degc.html</A> <p>[This message has been edited by Stuart Sweeney (edited May 22, 2001).]

Hiding behind the aegis of that informative website should stop the ageist attacks. <P>Sorry, I guess that just crept in from somewhere.

I know you can get Internet screening software. I wonder if you can get something to guard against puns. The trouble is there wouldn't be much of this site left.

Well Joanne I have many favourites bookmarked and when the day is not going too well, I turn to them for solace. Marshallinstruments data page is somehow very calming. I'm sure everyone would agree.

Joanne i suspect that you remain unconvinced. Please have a look at this page on their stainless steel high pressure guages, which I'm sure will convince you.<P> <A HREF="http://www.marshallinstruments.com/sp.html" TARGET=_blank>http://www.marshallinstruments.com/sp.html</A>

Why, yes, of course. Joanne, get with the program here. If Basheva can read these in her sleep, it should be no problem to enjoy these sites while awake. I, of course, am utterly intrigued and would like to install these guages around my farm for, uh, for, um...for awhile, yes.

I keep staring at these pictures waiting for them to turn into something interesting - like a magic eye picture (remember those) - how long should I keep staring for Stuart?<P>I'll keep staring until you advise me otherwise Stuart.

Consider the miracle of the fortnight lily. As it's name implies it is of the lily family and blooms once every fortnight. It has a tall star shaped flower about the size of a rose.<P>They are abundant in this part of the world and very much so in my garden. Every fortnight, I wake up in the morning and all of them have bloomed over night. They are scattered around my garden, some in the shade, some in the sunlight, some in dry spots and some in wetter spots. Some grow in a breezey place and some in quiet nooks. Yet all bloom on the same evening.<P>But, even more miraculous - they bloom all over San Diego County in unison. This county has some great gradations in weather from the ocean, to the mountains, with valleys in between. Temperature can differ as much as one degree per mile along with sunlight and cloud cover. Damp at the ocean, dry just a few miles inland. <P>It is a very large county so it is not unusual for some parts of it to be 60 degrees while inland over the mountains it could be 100 degrees. <P>Yet through all these variations of temperature, climate, ocean dampness or inland dryness - shade - sun - wind - or not - the fortnight lily blooms on the same evening all over this area.<P>I would like to know how that happens....or maybe not....perhaps it is better to think of it as a miracle.
