"The Moving Finger writes; and having writ,
Moves on: nor all thy Piety nor Wit
Shall lure it back to cancel half a Line,
Nor all thy Tears wash out a Word of it."*

*   From the Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam
   The First Version of Edward Fitzgerald
   London, Harrap, 1940, p. 42

Of the things that I got on Earth Day, by far the most creatively practical one is this scouring pad. I got it from a woman who was tabling at San Jose State who said she made it herself using plastic bags as the raw material. Considering that's a free resource, I'd say I just paid for her time. Since I only paid $4, I hope she can crank them out quickly enough to get a good hourly rate. But then it could easily turn out that it's a prototype and she abandons the idea after making a dozen of them. That would make this a rare piece. All the more "arty" if it turns out to be a useful kitchen tool.

This is what I call "my sister's world famous granola."
