Re: 2019: "An Apple for a Dollar"

I suspect it's an increasingly common situation, save that others have probably thrown out their coin sorters and cast the contents into either a coinstar or one of those vast empty water cooler bottles, never to be fully filled, or if filled, never to be emptied on discovery of its mass.

… which is why I ended up with a huge pile of shrapnel when on holiday in Florida. The only time I managed to pay with the right money was when I was in the cafeteria in one of the theme parks; I just dumped all the smash onto the tray and handed over what the cashier asked for.

Re: World Cup 2018!

Amazingly close game, with Croatia knocking out England!

This puts the final at Croatia v. France, and a 3rd place battle between England and Belgium. Any thoughts on how it's going to pan out? I'm guessing France-Croatia-Belgium-England

Re: The (Sub)Urban Farmer

Grapefruits are pretty hearty to the cold (they actually need the cold to color up, tropically grown grapefruits remain green). Satsumas may be your best bet though, as they can survive into the low 20s (F), a filtered sunlight location perhaps, so that they don't fry in summer.
