Short Wave Listening is much easier now with the moderon receivers. When I started some some 55 or 60 years ago the dial was a guess at best. Now with digital readout you just dial the frequency and if you have propagation you hear the station. ...... Jack

Just West of Versailles on the late Paul Morris farm are two great formations. Pictured below is the Morris (lost bridge) Bridge. While viewing the beautiful masonry work of the bridge please view the work of Paul Hinge, a stone solar calendar. Click photo for full view.

After seeing a commercial on TV I told two friends that waiting one half hour before swimming was a myth. The comment from them was "are you nuts" I replayed that is a good example of an ol' wives tale. So I looked it up and found the below quote. at: HERE
An examination of the Royal Lifesaving Association’s Australian reports on drowning over the past few years gives no mention of lives being lost after eating. And neither the American Academy of Pediatrics, the United States’ Consumer Product Safety Commission, nor the American Red Cross offer any guidelines or warning related to swimming after eating.
And I said, "See I told you so"
