This I’ve Learned

I WAS THINKING…
about the garbage trucks that comes once a week for a pick up.  The truck pulls up with the long forceps that lifts the can and dumps it into the truck in seconds.
I suppose the reason it fascinates me is because I remember (years ago) when the garbage truck meant a man or two would jump out and literally pick up the cans and dump it in the truck. Isn’t it amazing how things have improved and upgraded through the years? World Harmony? Well, maybe not so much.

OTHER USES FOR CHALK
 
(Taken from Reader’s Digest Problem Solve)
Rust preventer. Place pieces of chalk in toolbox to eliminate moisture and rust.
Rub on grease spot on clothing or table linens, let it absorb the oil, then brush off. If stain lingers, rub again before laundering.
Scatter powered chalk to repel ants and slugs.
Use as a marble polish. Wipe clean marble with a damp cloth dipped in powdered chalk, rinse with clear water and dry thoroughly.
