    Hey! Thank you for the award! My kid have actually used a "popper" but we just call it a juicebox. The whole "tank water" things sounds interesting. I bet there is a cultural story there because I am not even sure what it means.

  • Erin

    son wouldn't have known juice box either, in a large family they get big bottles if at all:) when you live in the country and aren't on a town water supply you have tanks, catch your rain for your water use. Don't people in America have tanks? at least in the country?

  • Mary

    Thanks so much for the award! As far as the tanks and whether or not we have them in the states, we do have rain catch barrels. But as far as I know we just use them for watering plants. We have well water when you don't have water supply. People have wells dug on their property and that's where they get their water from.

    Thanks very much for the nomination! I am looking forward to checking out the blogs on your list. I already found Jimmie's blog due to her magnificent Squidoo pages. She is really talented.

  • Helena

    Thanks so much for the award, Erin! And thank you for your lovely comment in my little land of words too. It's always interesting to meet up with people via our blogworlds and discover how many ways we are alike and connected. I love that, and I'm very glad to meet you!

    I loved your note #7. How wonderful that you'll be a librarian when you grow up—libraries are one of my three favourite indoor places. (The other two are bookstores and movie theatres. I think they should be called "Dream Spaces," don't you?) 🙂
