I learned (from my mother, from central Mississippi, I expect) mther "grits" means hominy grits, what you describe is "corn meal mush" and isn't grind-specific. The best cornmeal mush was made from home-ground corn meal which wasn't sifted. I fake it by mixing a half-bag (2 1/2 pounds) of Hodgson's Mill or Aunt Jemima cornmeal with a pound each of Bob's Read Mill coarse and medium corn meal (some times I find it in the "health foods" section of the store). I use that mixture for cornbread (you'd think my recipe weird, I'll bet--I don't like corn cake), mush, breading stuff..... http://www.bobsredmill.com/flours-meals/ (They also have "corn grits/polenta" %^) http://www.bobsredmill.com/corn-grits_polenta.html

Why don't we stop beating around the bush and can terms like "global warming" and stuff like it that has to be reeuphemised evertime the natural cycles do their thing. Let us just call it "bringing the free to heel" or something and be done with it?

Not of my God, clearly. Looks like the ordinary shoddy work of a government agency -- the TVA. http://itsgettinghotinhere.org/2008/12/29/kingston-coal-ash-sludge-spill-over-a-billion-gallons-time-to-take-a-hard-look-at-the-coal-industry/

Thank you for that well balanced report. TVA is government, right? What caused the spill?

I like all kinds of spiders--especially when there a lots of things around that I don't like. But that guy has been to Starbucks too many times.

Keeping alive the tradition that it is better to say something in the most disjoint and confusing way possible than to have said noting at all.

The twine looks sturdy enought, what caught my attention (after getting used to the notion that the cat was going to ride) is that the basket is on a two-opoint attachment, which means the cat has to sit just-so to keep from getting dumped out. I wonder if that accounts to the "holding on" -- sensing the degree of balance.
