Patient readers, President’s Day is legit a holiday, so I’m off to a notional beach. Talk amongst yourselves! –lambert
To make the song title and refrain completely clear, a verse:
A hundred dollar Franklin, man, is really sweet
A five hundred McKinley is the one for me
If I get a Cleveland, I’m really set
A thousand dollar Cleveland is hard to get
It’s all about the benjamins 🎶!
Readers, feel free to contact me at lambert [UNDERSCORE] strether [DOT] corrente [AT] yahoo [DOT] com, with (a) links, and even better (b) sources I should curate regularly, (c) how to send me a check if you are allergic to PayPal, and (d) to find out how to send me images of plants. Vegetables are fine! Fungi are deemed to be honorary plants! If you want your handle to appear as a credit, please place it at the start of your mail in parentheses: (thus). Otherwise, I will anonymize by using your initials. See the previous Water Cooler (with plant) here. Today’s plant (TH):
Fullerton Arboretum in Fullerton, California.
Readers, I’m running short on plant pictures. I keep asking for winter scenes, but perhaps the time for that has passed! So, anything that involves global weirding? Or anything beautiful.
Readers: Water Cooler is a standalone entity not covered by the annual NC fundraiser. So do feel free to make a contribution today or any day. Here is why: Regular positive feedback both makes me feel good and lets me know I’m on the right track with coverage. When I get no donations for five or ten days I get worried. More tangibly, a constant trickle of small donations helps me with expenses, and I factor that trickle in when setting fundraising goals. So if you see something you especially appreciate, do feel free to click below! (The hat is temporarily defunct, so I slapped in some old code.)
