New school year

Where did the summer go? Well, I do know. Moving takes time and energy, and settling in is usually fun. And frustrating. In any event, the school starts tomorrow. Crazy. I have two classes: Math for elementary teachers and Methods for secondary. I never really feel ready for any of the classes. But I'm sure it'll be fun.

I almost forgot. Mark and I were looking for dual flush toilets. As a friend of our would say "a peepee and a poopoo". We went all over the place looking and asking and we happened to be in Lowe's for something else, so I decided to see what they can order. The man in the plumbing was most helpful. He was looking them up and we ran into one made by kohler, I think, and it read 1.4/1 gpf. He read "This one uses one and a quarter gallons and one gallon per flush".

That's precious 'e'...
Usually on a urinal you see
3.8l/1 gpf
which translates to 3.8 liters or equivalently 1 gallon per flush. I'm doing this from memory of course!
BTW, nice to hear from you again.
