About Me C.S. Lewis:
Nature never taught me that there exists a God of glory and of infinite majesty. I had to learn that in other ways. But nature gave the word glory a meaning for me. I still do not know where else I could have found one. I do not see how the “fear” of God could have ever meant to me anything but the lowest prudential efforts to be safe, if I had never seen certain ominous ravines and unapproachable crags.

Impregnation
Dad, where do babies come from? Just kidding. Ever seen gear advertised as "silicone coated" rather than "silicone impregnated?" Is there a difference?

Walmart goodies, part 3
Another bit of "kit" (as our English friends say) to be found at Walmart: cheap, lightweight nylon cord. Last I checked, 100' of it sold for $3.
