Been decapitating all my hoodies. Can't seem to find decent warmish tops that aren't hoodies. Chop off the hood, seam and voila!

Readers of my Babylon Eye series, here's a real-life Meisje. Not only is Gretchen a white shepherd like the dog in the books, she's a special kind of service dog, a diabetes assist dog, and can detect when her owner's blood sugar drops.
Gretchen doesn't need technological enhancement to do her job :) And she can pick up blood sugar changes much faster than any technology yet invented.
She looks so very much like my Anna too. Watching her makes me miss my old girl!

Left the car's lights on the other night, battery flat. The roadside assistance guy connected the jumper leads wrong, and destroyed both the alternator and the regulator. Expensive mistake. But the car had the decency to break down around the corner from our mechanic, and the mechanic's assistant gave me a lift home with all my grocery shopping which is no small deal in this heat. People are kind :)

New word for me: "poka-yoke". Making a part asymmetrical so that it can only be assembled one way e.g. USB connectors are NOT poka-yoke!

All the big containers we own now full of rainwater! :) In other news: my raincoat is definitely not waterproof.

His name is Peanut. I found him dodging cars in Wynberg, scared, hot and lost. Thirsty too! Luckily he's chipped, so we were able to contact his owners. Poor little guy came running right into my arms when he spotted me.
