Another reminder to us all to read and heed those labels!

The other day, I noticed lung-health warnings in a place I would not have
expected them -- on a sack of coarse builder's sand. Apparently it also
contains silica particles that can ruin lungs. So keep that in mind for
goodness sake and don't allow yourself to inhale the dust that rises when
you tip over a sack of sand.

Little Rock, Arkansas, USDA Zone 7b
257 feet above sea level,
average rainfall about 50 inches (more than 60" in '97)
average relative humidity (at 6 a.m.) 84%.
moderate winters, hot summers ... but lots of seesaw action in all seasons
