I started a new diet, All I had was toast this morning. I had 2 glasses of wine and congratulated myself on the progress.

One of my web wierdnesses is looking at the point where lines of latitude converge.  The Degree Confluence Project says that 26 Degrees North by 80 Degrees East is just offshore of Hollywood Florida Beach.  The stories can be quite informative if a bit "esoteric".

75 Degrees West by 40 Degrees North is on a golf course in Riverton NJ, near where I grew up.  The people there know of it and are very helpful to tell people who want to stand there.

I wonder if there's a convergence point near this little old lady?

A little old lady was walking down the street dragging two large plastic garbage bags behind her.

One of the bags was ripped and every once in a while a £20 fell out onto the sidewalk.
Noticing this, a policeman stopped her, and said, “Ma’am, there are £20 notes falling out of that bag.”

“Oh, really? Darn it!” said the little old lady.
“I’d better go back and see if I can find them. Thanks for telling me officer.

“Well, now, not so fast,” said the cop.
“Where did you get all that money? You didn’t steal it, did you?”
“Oh, no, no”, said the old lady. “You see, my back garden is right next to a Golf course.
A lot of Golfers come and pee through a knot hole in my fence, right into my flower Garden.
It used to really tick me off.
Kills the flowers, you know.

Then I thought, ‘why not make the best of it? So, now, I stand behind the fence by the knot hole, real quiet, with my hedge clippers.

Every time some guy sticks his thing through my fence, I surprise him, grab hold of it and say, ‘O.K., mate! Give me £20, or off it comes.’

“Well, that seems only fair,” said the cop, laughing. “OK. Good luck!

Oh, by the way, what’s in the other bag?”
“Not everybody pays.
