George, did you really mean to say that the city carries around a chipper
every single week, purportedly for the use of the public...? Who gets to 
keep the chips? Is there a charge? Can one also chop the wood into
lengths, tie it in bundles, and leave it at the curb? 

Another question, not intended to be flippant, but how do you break apart
a quart of frozen onions, when the time comes?  At home, I break up a bag

of frozen ice cubes by slamming it on the floor (closed, of course <g>),
do the same with a quart of cooked rice (flat-packed in a Ziplock bag) --
works like a charm. But out in St.Louis where I was just visiting, my
would not allow me to threaten her sister's stone floor with the ice
and so I beat the tar out of the bag with a wooden mixing spoon, instead.
Broke the ice, but busted the spoon.
