Default Anoother good reason to compost

A Swedish lady found a wedding ring that she'd lost in the kitchen 16
years ago. It turned up on a carrot in the garden. They guess it
went to the compost pile, or the sheep ate it and re-deposited it.g

There's hope yet. So far I have only found a teaspoon and a vegetable
peeler in the compost heap.

Very cool, all I've found in my garden is arrowheads.

Fortunate lady. I'm envious. Most significant item we've found buried
where I live is an automobile. It's still there; dunno what's in it.
Could be treasure? In the garden all I've "found" is a instant-read
thermometer but it was one I had "lost" the previous autumn.


There was an old abandoned car on private property I used to jog past for a year
or more. They finally checked it out, and found a body in the trunk.

Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed. This world in arms is not spending money alone. It is spending the sweat of its laborers, the genius of its scientists, the hopes of its children. This is not a way of life at all in any true sense. Under the clouds of war, it is humanity hanging on a cross of iron.
- Dwight D. Eisenhower, 16 April 1953

Car wrecks are discovered in the bush in some parts round here after
bushfires. If a plot of dense bush is near an access road people will drive
old cars in as far as they can and abandon them rather than pay a tipping
fee. They can build up unseen for years. Then comes a bushfire and after
the smoke clears among the ashes car bodies are revealed that nobody knew
were there.

I found a set of keys I lost. Best I can figure is the lawn mower sucked it
up.

And I dumped them in there with the grass.

Diesel.
