Do You Know Where Your Towel Is??
To quote from Hitchiker's Guide to The Galaxy.
A towel, it says, is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitch hiker can have.
Partly it has great practical value
•you can wrap it around you for warmth as you bound across the cold moons of Jaglan Beta
•you can lie on it on the brilliant marble-sanded beaches of Santraginus V, inhaling the heady sea vapours
•you can sleep under it beneath the stars which shine so redly on the desert world of Kakrafoon
•use it to sail a mini raft down the slow heavy river Moth
•wet it for use in hand-to-hand-combat
•wrap it round your head to ward off noxious fumes
•avoid the gaze of the Ravenous Bugblatter Beast of Traal (a mindboggingly stupid animal, it assumes that if you can't see it, it can't see you - daft as a bush, but very ravenous)
•you can wave your towel in emergencies as a distress signal
•and of course, dry yourself off with it if it still seems to be clean enough.

More importantly, a towel has immense psychological value.

For some reason, if a strag (strag: non-hitch hiker) discovers that a hitch hiker has his towel with him, he will automatically assume that he is also in possession of a toothbrush, face flannel, soap, tin of biscuits, flask, compass, map, ball of string, gnat spray, wet weather gear, space suit etc., etc. Furthermore, the strag will then happily lend the hitch hiker any of these or a dozen other items that the hitch hiker might accidentally have "lost".

What the strag will think is that any man who can hitch the length and breadth of the galaxy, rough it, slum it, struggle against terrible odds, win through, and still knows where his towel is, is clearly a man to be reckoned with.

T-8 Days/132+ Days

By: FLCrackerGirl, 3:57 PM GMT on May 19, 2006



8 Days To "Official" Start of The Atlantic Hurricane Season.
132 Consecutive Days Without Atlantic Tropical Cyclone Activity

Culture of Preparedness
Florida'sHurricane Preparedness Sales Tax Holiday starts Sunday May21 & Runs Through Thursday Jun 1 and coincides with National Hurricane Preparedness Week. Under the legislation, no state or local sales tax will be collected on hurricane preparedness items.

"In this period of increased tropical activity, it is vital for all Floridians to prepare," said Governor Bush. "Families and businesses that prepare are safer and recover quicker than those who don't plan and don't take action."

Exempted Intems Include:
•Flashlights and portable, self-powered light sources — $20 or less
•Portable radios, two-way radios and weather-band radios — for $50 or less
•Flexible waterproof sheeting (tarps) — $50 or less
•Gas or diesel fuel containers — $25 or less
•Batteries — $30 or less
•Non-electrical food storage coolers — $30 or less
•Portable generators — $1,000 or less
•Carbon monoxide detectors — $75 or less
•Storm shutter devices — $200 or less
•Cell phone batteries — $60 or less

"This legislation is an incentive for Floridians to stock up on supplies, as well as a reminder to prepare for the safety of their families," said Senator Carey Baker.

"We've learned the hard way how important it is to prepare early and thoroughly for hurricane season," said Representative Ron Greenstein. "This measure will grant Floridians a tax break on much needed hurricane supplies and hopefully increase the number of people prepared for this year's hurricane season."

"All indications are that we will have another active hurricane season," said Florida Division of Emergency Management Director Craig Fugate. "A successful response starts well before a storm makes landfall — with families, communities and counties planning and preparing for a potential emergency."
