In case you are wondering what is in the orange pot in the back – why, that’s water. I frequently enjoy hard boiled eggs for breakfast and to save water I throw a bunch of ice cubes into the pot when the eggs are done, instead of pouring the hot water down the drain and adding cold water to cool the eggs. I can then either re-use the water the next morning, or water a plant with it.
It’s a little thing I call location-specific environmental awareness. In some places the electricity used to produce the ice cubes might be more precious than the running water wasted by cooling the eggs – but not here in Santa Fe.
And just imagine how much better the photo would look with the new Treo 650 camera phone!
