"Down here at Cape Spartel is the celebrated cave of Hercules, where the hero took refuge when he was vanquished and driven out of the Tangier country. It is full of inscriptions in the dead languages, which fact makes me think Hercules could not have traveled much, else he would not have kept a journal."

Currently Without Name

This will be quick - just wanted to say that I have a new resident in my window sill! She (since plants are feminine in German) was purchased today when we went into IKEA. Yes, in case you're wondering, they are the same in Austria as they are in the US, with tags in German, of course. (Forgive me for a moment while I show my age - IT WAS SO COOL!) Anyway, back to the point - I now have a water plant of some sort that is currently nameless. My sister asked me if she had a name (the plant, that is), and I said no. However, I upon further consideration I decided that it would be rather fitting. If you have any ideas, let me know!

  1. How about Kitty - a girl's name, a traditional but tongue-in-cheek pet name? Yes, Mom is tired. Glad to see your new pet.
