From that link, you can download the original Fortran manual. I think that was back in the day when people actually read manuals.

One is the "quiet close" toilet seat. We alwasy close our toilet lids - first, because we don't want our dog drinking out of the toilet, and second, because they just look better that way. These quiet close seats mean you simply need to tilt the seat past the equilibrium point, and they gently close. This has a downside, however. At other people's house, we freuqently slam the toilet seats when we just tip them past the equilibrium point...
The second are bottom basin racks for sinks. We bought one of these when we decided to NOT buy a double sink. They are so nice to have, that we bought one for the other, exisiting sink in the house. It makes it much easier to wash and dry dishes, and it is simply convenient.
Odd, little things that make life easier.

Because of circumstances BEYOND MY CONTROL Doreen and my reservations were split.
As I am a Platinum and my Sweet Ever Lovin' is Silver, I got upgraded and she did not.
I repeatedly offered her my seat, but she refused.
Now, I fear, I will pay the price.

It was unbelievably crowded:
|From San Francisco|
We watched a little bit of Steve Martin on the Banjo Stage. But we worked our way over to the Rooster Stage and saw Dar Williams, Allison Moorer, Steve Earl, and Tom Morello.
The first three were great. Tom Morello (the Night Watchman) was a little over the top. But it was fun anyway.
The buses were so crowded getting back that we had to walk about a half mile out of the park to find one that we could get on. There were so many bicyclists that they had to hang their bikes in the trees! Like a Strange Fruit. (sorry. bad analogy)
It was a beautiful day in San Francisco.

Some work, some fun, some just enjoying the City by the Bay.
San Francisco was the first real city I ever visited on my own.
One of Doreen's dearest friends lives there. He is a priest.
Maybe he will forgive me of my sins.
Watch this space.
