Not a day goes by that I don’t learn about something new and you know that when I get one that makes me go “wow” I share it with you.
Linda is taking us for a walk on the boardwalk along Tempe Town Lake yesterday and is explaining that the man-made lake is controlled by dams on each end. That’s cool. Then we get to the signboard that explains it all. Turns out the dams are made of a rubber product and inflatable.
Wow! That’s way cool. I just learned something, maybe you did too.
Then, just when you think your brain is full enough for one day, something else pops up: My buddy George chips in with a comment on my story yesterday about the milk factory next door with “Back home the milk truck picks up 2,800 litres every two days from only 55 cows, but it stays in Ontario” For you non-metric types, 2800 litres equals about 736 US gallons. ( 3.8 litres equals a gallon). Assuming American cows are as productive as Canadian cows (the only thing I know for sure us Canucks are better at is drinking beer) that’s almost 7 gallons ( 25 litres) per cow, per day.
This morning we leave the paved Tempe Elks parking lot and move on to Lost Dutchman State Park for a few days.
Talk to you later
