I suspect this afternoon's nap may go a long way toward answering that question. :)

Galina, Alla, and I toured the local garage sales this morning. Fortunately, there were not many of them, and of the ones that were open for business, few had anything I might be interested in. The one thing I did pick up (for a whole buck) was a piece of oven cookware made of clay and sold under the name of RömerTopf.

A quick read of the instructions revealed that the pot cooks with steam (one is supposed to soak it in water for 10 minutes prior to use) and can be used to prepare complete meals in one pot. The downside, it would appear, is that it is designed to be used in an oven, which is not necessarily the best solution down here in Houston, where the house's air conditioner has enough to do without the added burden of getting rid of oven heat.

I stopped by the post office to send off the Duofold to someone who knows about nibs, and then picked up some fruit and a slab of baby back ribs on the way home. I suspect the ribs may have had something to do with my nap.

Since arising again, I've completed one of two outstanding translation assignments and paid a bunch of bills. As I type this, I find it difficult to believe that it's almost 8 pm, but I will muddle through, somehow.

Cheers...
