hello, foxy

This has been a strange week! More on that soon -- in the meantime, here's a picture of currently blooming foxglove. I am crazy about them so I am spamming the internet (here and my garden blog) with this photo. So there.

And now, to make up for my photo-spamming ways, I shall share the almost magical Helpful Household Hint I learned last week. Brasso metal polish really does work on scratched CDs! A CD I really wanted to hear had deep, deep scratches across the first three songs. This made it unlistenable -- I was mondo irritated but determined to solve this problem. I did some online research and figured I didn't have anything to lose by attempting the Brasso Cure...and it totally worked! It buffs out scratches without ruining the CD. (I know it seems counterintuitive, but it really did work.) All you have to do is put some Brasso on a soft cloth and wax on/ wax off Mr. Miyagi style and voila! listenable CD. MAGIC!

  1. Daniel-san says that Mr. Miyagi is quite wise, not unlike your great love, Yoda.

  2. Hee hee hee! Who told you about Yoda? That was supposed to be a SECRET! I would kill that freaky muppet jedi if he weren't, you know, already dead. (except in my heart!)

  3. What a great tip! Will try that Brasso.

    Amazing foxglove. Is that the state flower? If it isn't, it should be. Hillsides full of them, at the coast.
