Two notices...

This one was in the Hindu Temple of St Louis:

no shorts please ..st louis temple

I was very tickled because a) the temple seems to have such a list of do's and dont's ... and the assumption seems to be that the reader IS wearing shorts!

And this one was in a Starbucks Cafe:

10 per cent post use fiber cup starbucks

Nothing is simple any more. Everything is earth-friendly or supporting left-handed dyslexic abandoned abused minority women or something like that....but...what on EARTH is 10% post-consumer fiber and 60% post-conumer fiber??? Sounds so impressive...but what does it mean? And after all that "We are committed to..." stuff, is that line, "intended for single use..."!

Two images on a train.....

The wealthy traveller boards the train. The window is big and is not curtained, but the lights ensure that he doesn't see much outside, and his attention is on the snowy napery, the shining cutlery, and the food to arrive:

looking out....

But on the outside is the common man,looking in:

...and looking in

That family is waiting for a train, too, I think, but it won't be a fancy one...
