Corner View is a weekly appointment - each Wednesday - created by Jane and currently curated by Francesca, where bloggers from all corners of the world share their view on a pre-arranged theme. If you'd like to join in, please leave a link to your Corner View post in the comments at www.fuoriborgo.com, and be sure to visit other participants, too.
Technically, the last thing I learned, I learned yesterday evening as I pulled out of the office parking garage. I learned that one should not swear at the other drivers AFTER one has dialed one's cell phone. I was calling a woman I'd never met before to give my regrets for a baby shower for a friend's daughter. (A nice event held by nice people, right?) I didn't hear her answer and as soon as I finished verbally abusing the cars blocking the intersection, I heard this faint voice on the other line, "Excuse me?" (If she were a "Corner viewer" she could say that she learned many new colorful words Tuesday.)
However, that is not my corner view post... I belong to an organic gardening group. Once a month we have educational meetings at Leu Gardens. Our September meeting was on seed propagation. As this is a humid area, one of the speakers recommended placing one of these in the bag with the seeds to keep them dry:
I suppose it's pretty obvious really, but it never occurred to me. And these come in everything from vitamin bottles to shoe boxes.
I also learned that Parker does not mind wearing the "senior dog" diaper I bought yesterday:
He is such a trooper!
