Eureka! I have found it!

I am not here to dispute whether Archimedes ran naked through the streets after discovering the principle of water displacement. Indeed, I would suggest the Greek shower instead of bathing, saving five to fifteen gallons of water. Archimedes could even hang a watering can over the faucet while he waits for the water to get hot enough. The one to two gallons captured in the watering can would go right down the drain otherwise. Instead, Archimedes could water the plants on the balcony. He could even pour it into the next washer load. Eureka! He would save water.

And now some shadowy shower photos of the watering can matched with student art class value studies--

By the way, you and Eu and Archimedes have a few more hours to take the Mayors' Water Conservation Challenge here. Plano is sixth for cities with populations between 100,000 and 299,999 at the moment.

Polonius, not Archimedes, said "Neither a shower athlete nor a shower diva be." And we all know what happened to him behind the arras. Yep. Dead for a ducat, dead. Act 3, scene 4.     

The preschoolers are back in the gardening business, growing cabbage, spinach, and radishes. The classroom rabbit, Oreo, is perpetually famished. That means small persons are filling and carrying watering cans. Natural consequences are at work. Keep that spout up, or wear soggy shoes!

So much beauty and fun here. And cleanliness. I sing opera in the shower, too.
