This is a thread that I am going to use to display headlines that I see throughout the day that interest, amuse or shock me. I am only going to post the headlines. If anyone cares to dig deeper with me then I am up for that. I also welcome all others that care to post their headlines. Woodworking is fun but we need to broaden our horizons occasionally and keep track of what is happening in the real world outside of wood. This is my first headline.

@madts: I saw that exchange with Piers Morgan and I am firmly convinced that Jones has sniffed one too many empty shotgun shells. But….if I could find the petition to deport PM I’d sign that too.

AA EN HUNZE, Netherlands, Jan. 9 (UPI)—A local government official in the Netherlands is recommending people save money and resources by peeing in the shower.
Bert Wassink, a council member in the Drenthe municipality of Aa en Hunze, said residents can reduce water consumption by combining shower time with toilet time, DutchNews.nl reported Wednesday.
