Carts, Stamps, Canals
One of those lovely little inconsequential blessings: my local grocery store just got new carts. They glide so smoothly! The handles feel so clean! The metal gleams! Something to make one smile.

Here's a new experience for me: today I wet the glue on some stamps by dipping my fingertip in my drink (hot water with a squirt of apple-elderflower juice for flavor) and then spreading it on the back of the stamps. It worked really well. Weird, eh? Scented envelopes, anyone?

A MAN, A PLAN, A CANAL: PANAMA
What is special about this statement? Tell me in a comment :-)

Do you think that Esau's son from one wife took Esau's other wife's great aunt as his concubine? Seems a bit of a stretch generationally.
See Genesis 36:2, 12, 22, 25. Could it be the same Timna? And furthermore, do you think the town of Timnah was named after her? (Gen. 38:12) After all, Timna was the mother of Amalek, whose descendants gave Israel quite some trouble. I have to look this up in a commentary somewhere.
