Hi Jamie!

Bubble, Bubble, toil and trouble,
In the caldren, boil and bubble!

Isn't that from a fairy tale?  Hansel and Grettle, perhaps?

I must be getting punchy due to the late hour, (smile).

Yes, we hear the boiling sound.

I had a very cool experience recently, so, I know what boiling water would feel like cool. We got some food from Omaha Steaks delivered about two months ago. They pack it in a cooler with dry ice. Bruce, being the scientist that he is, (he majored in physics education as an undergrad), he put the chunk of dry ice in a bowl and ran warm water over it to cover. That thing "boiled" cooly. I mean the temperature of the water was bathwater warm, but the sound was a rolling boil and when I put my hand in the water, it was bubbling wildly, so that is how I know what a boil would feel like in a literally cool way. It really fogged the dry ice, Bruce said. I bet that is how the foley artists made boiling sounds when the mad scientist was working in his lab or the witch was making her brew.

Ok, call me curious and one of those dumb people who ask dumb questions. Now I have to know, how do you know when the water is boiling. I KNOW you don't touch it to see. Is it something you can hear?

And now I am going to go to bed (back to bed, I should say). I want to bring my number of books added to the collection up to a round 800 in 2010. (I have 617 that I've scanned so far in the past 3 years).

So I need to scan a book about every other day.
