It's sort of silly, but I still include toothpaste and a toothbrush in my

(adult) kids Christmas and birthday bags. They likely think it's one just of my idiosyncrasies and go along with it.

There are many toothpaste and toothbrush sales where Colgate and sometimes Crest can be bought for ca $1.00/tube.
I just picked up four Colgate toothbrushes today @ $1. each. I throw them out whenever I get a cold or throat or sinus infection, as I believe that's just reinserting the germs back into the mouth.

Two of my kids had braces and the orthodontist insisted on pulling out four of their teeth, as their mouth was too crowded. I really hated their having perfectly good teeth pulled, but that's how it had to be handled. One has since had more pulled because of cavities (too much soda, I believe) and fell and broke her front teeth as well. Luckily, a good dentist was able to save the little that was left and rebuilt on it.

It's a good feeling to have all one's affairs in order,

rather than just the idea in one's head.

Found while searching online: Saginaw News Dec. 1, 1899:

"Mrs Charles Carr has been sick for the last two years and doctors have been unable to tell what was the matter with her. She was taken with a violent fit of coughing Sunday and threw up a snake eight inches long. Mr. Carr has the curiosity preserved in alcohol."

I am not related to the lady.

I was a young mother, and got my daughters up from bed to come see it.

Don't know how much they got out of it, but they were there.
I let the baby boys sleep in.

Now, if only he can bottle and sell it.

As an aside, in my Midwestern city, with no water shortage, a city councilman has seriously suggested that the city bottle and sell its water, to help keep down the rising water bills, which have been severely impacted due to required upgrades in sewer pipes.

Fresh water is in short supply everywhere on this continent.

The Great Lakes, the earth's largest supply of fresh water, are lower than usual, as well as belonging nearly 1/2 to Canada.

Is anything being done re desalinization of ocean water in California?

I realize that's a most expensive means of procuring water, but, nonetheless, California has an immense shoreline with the entire Pacific Ocean beyond.
