I did some online shopping and got an awesome new purse in the mail the other day. But there’s a mystery! All the packaging on the purse was in Chinese. The label plaque on the front says: MEDE DE ITALY – CIANMI VEASRGE GOUTUAH….Via dei Cesa 16 Milano. Google translate says the first part is Dutch, meaning “Also the Italy.” Google translate says the next bit it actually Chinese, but offers no translation. Finally, Via Dei Cesa 16 Milano is actually Italian. It maps to a Via Antonio Cesari, 16.
There is no doorway for number 16 on Via Antonio Cesari, but there is some graphiti on the wall which reads: Muri Puliti Popolo Muto – machine translated as “walls clean dumb people.” …Or, could it be, dumb people clean walls? There is a police station at Via Antonio Cesari, 20.
So, we have this 1.3-2 gallon jug that we re-used, from crappy orange juice finished long ago, to water plants with when we’re not on the side of the house that has the watering can. The problem with using a watering jug instead of a can with a spout is the uncontrolled and harsh stream of water that can upset soil, especially around new plantings. My solution? look for a do-hickey that puts a spout on the jug — why buy another watering can?
Finding such a do-hickey was both harder and easier than expected. And it led me to an amazing site I should have known would be there already: Shapeways — a site to buy and sell 3-D printed fabulousness. Here is some fabulousness:
