Explosion in the well

Big happening today! Well digger hit rock bottom, guess there is no need to explain the lack of water but hey! We're not giving up here… can we get the job done? Yes we can! (Got the Obama quote?)

So bring on the dynamite, seemed like a good idea at the time, no really it was, weŽll ask the guy digging, we just haven’t found him yet , ok seriously.. so they connected the dynamite to the wires lowered it down the well, everyone took cover, women and children inside, a loud "fire in the hole" and then…..nothing!? so double check the dynamite, when they it up the well some genius shouted “disconnect the power ” (I can see how that could considered to be a good safety precaution!).. dynamite was ok, checking the weirs, connections and it shows itself… that the power was turned off in the first place Meaning they standing with the dynamite in their hands and turned the power on not off!!(for you who donŽt know, a short circuit or static electricity spark now would have caused the thing to explode) so in a state of panic, get the dynamite down the well,  and since the power was on.. women and children inside, again…”fire in the hole” and, big bang! dust and stone flying and everyone’s cheering they got rid of the rock and are back on the digging again…  

Aaaand a trip to the market, youŽd think that bargain about the price is a tourist thing… nope! Going to the market with Moses, getting vegetables turned out to be an hour and a half discussing prices all over the market, now if one person sold, let’s see… three different vegetables we would have been doing this procedure three, maybe four times but since just about every vegetable has its own seller youŽd be doing this over and over again… just hope he got the money worth the time, A least I found a funny thing, a Siamese twin banana(s)…
