Dan Goodman's prediction and politics journal.

Thursday, June 10, 2004

Thursday June 10, 2004. Rummage sale at Pilgrim Lutheran Church's school, 3910 Stevens Avenue. On that part of Stevens, there's no way to forget which side of the street a building is on. The other side is taken up by a fence which protects Stevens from the freeway.

I spent a bit over a dollar. Saturday morning will be a $1 bag sale; right before my Clutterers Anonymous meeting.

To Steeple People thrift shop. I donated some "I might need it someday" stuff, bought a couple of teaspoons, and picked up some free magazines.

Across the street to the Wedge. Bought catnip, among other things; it doesn't do for me what it does for cats, but catnip tea does give me a slight lift.

Picked up a copy of the Southwest News. As usual, about half the car thefts included in the police report were from people who'd either left their keys in the ignition or left them in plain sight in their cars.

"They Might be Windmills" -- One conversation added.

From The Economist's free weekly business ezine:

Germany's constitutional court confirmed a ban on Sunday shopping by throwing out a legal challenge from Kaufhof, a department-store chain, while recognising that exceptions, such as shops in railway and petrol stations, are growing. According to the constitution, Sundays and official holidays are upheld as days of “spiritual elevation”.
