The other day I saw an interesting phenomenon here at home.  This is not a very complicated explanation, but it took me awhile to figure it out.

First, I have an awning on the front of the house.  Note that it runs at right angles to the vertical blind inside the house.

Here is a photo of that same vertical blind taken from inside.  If you look carefully, you can see the awning on the outside.

Now combine the horizontal awning outside with the vertical blind inside, and look what happens!

Interesting, yes?

Humor , as well as a warning --

When you drink Vodka over ice, it can give you kidney failure.
When you drink Rum over ice, it can give you liver failure.
When you drink whiskey over ice, it can give you heart problems.
When you drink Gin over ice, it can give you brain problems.
Apparently, ice is really bad for you.
Warn all your friends.


  1. Very cool sunshine design! It also goes well with the daisy-loomed afghan!

  2. Fascinating! And did you notice? In the first picture, the awning goes straight across but the reflection of it in the window is in a V.

  3. Cool effect from the sun!

    Oh, and I am totally giving up ice!

  4. That is nifty, indeed! And keep away from ice.
