Rich's Note:   Swiffer

I have to tell you I’m not overly impressed with Swiffer. It doesn’t
seem to me to be as labor saving and effective as claimed. I feel like I
get a better clean with a regular or sponge mop.


I have a small kitchen and a small bathroom and a very small entrance
area that has linoleum. The rest of the apartment is carpeted.


Rather than dig out a mop and bucket, I use the Swiffer, applying a lot
more elbow grease even after spot cleaning with a sponge.

All three floors with linoleum take me a combined ten minutes to clean.

Life is so hard.

Do You Remember?

Chad & Jeremy 1965

Willow weep for me
Willow weep for me
Bend your branches green
Along the stream that runs to sea

Listen to my plea
Listen willow and weep for me

Gone my lover's dream
Lovely summer's dream
Gone and left me here
To weep my tears into the stream

Sad as I can be
Hear me willow and weep for me

Whisper to the wind
And say that love has sinned
Leave my heart a-breaking
And making a moan
Murmur to the night
To hide the starry light
So none will find me sighing
And crying all alone

Weepin' willow tree
Weep in sympathy
Bend your branches down
Along the ground and cover me

When the shadows fall
Bend oh willow and weep for me
