A friend just contacted me to tell me that campers at the rock concert in Glastonbury got a bit wet the other day. I told her that I don't camp on the ground and besides being a whole lot more comfortable it is much drier.

Where would you have set up your hammock in that picture? I guess you could have in the woods there but in a total plain where there are no trees, where do you put that thing?

Homer: No, I do not know what shaden-frawde is.
[sarcasm] Please tell me, because I'm dying to know.
