For example, we are always washing dishes in a bucket and reuse the waste water in the garden. However, the place wasting the most water in the household is the toilet. We try to flush the toilet as seldom as possible (never to get rid of trash or try to wait after several usage before flushing) but it is not always practical.

It works pretty well. Now there’s two button: a small one for half a flush and a bigger one for a full flush! Finally I can save more water without any hassle.

“Using the same wit and empathy that made his Peanuts cartoons popular worldwide. Charles Schulz turns his sights on the lives of teenagers. He finds the humor in teen attitudes toward spirituality, document.write(“”); family, dating, and life. All their youthful enthusiasm, exuberence, passion, flaws, and faibles are on display with the hilarious drawings and sharp insights that made Schulz the most influential cartoonist ever.”

“During the 1950s and 60s, while his work was exploding in popularity, Schulz created hundreds of these cartoons for Youth magazine and other publications. Here they are, including ones never before collected and unseen in decades. It’s a treasure trove for any true Schulz fan.” [ Text from the back cover ]


WARNING: May contains trace of “spoilers”! People allergic to any discussions of a plot element before having themselves become aware of it are strongly advised to take the necessary precautions for their safety and should avoid reading further.

For as long as I remember I have been a great fan of Charles Schulz’s Peanuts cartoons and wasn’t aware that he did anything else. So I was rather surprised when I stumble upon this book at the library. I borrowed it immediately and quickly ran through it with an avid curiosity. It made for an easy reading since it’s made of single-panel cartoons. I found the same irreverent wit as in the Charlie Brown series, but this time with teenagers as main characters. I guess that american teenagers haven’t changed much in the last five decades because it feels somewhat similar to modern cartoons like Zits. The drawings are very simple and, although accompanied by a caption, are able to convey complex ideas. In a way, it is much more difficult to do this successfully with a single-panel story than a four-panel one like for Charlie Brown. [opposite: page 89]

While reading the Peanuts cartoons I had already noticed that it often had religious themes, which I thought normal considering that the average american is much more outspoken and devout about his religion than the people I know and keep company with here in Quebec. I don’t know anyone who quotes scriptures in a conversation or an argument! However, this religious thematic is totally omnipresent in Young Pillars. I was annoyed by this at first, thinking that Schulz must have been quite a devout american. But I quickly realized that he was often putting a slightly cynical twist in his story, gently pointing out how excessive the religious belief can be in the average american daily life. And THAT I liked.

But this religious tone is no coincidence since the Young Pillars cartoon series was published in Youth magazine, which was a Warner Press publication aimed at teens in the Church of God, a Holiness religious movement headquartered in Anderson, Indiana (There are so many different sects, a.k.a denominations, in the Christian faith that it’s almost ridiculous!). The single panel series ran, first bi-weekly and later weekly, from January 1st 1956 until early 1965. This book also includes illustrations that Schulz did for the 22nd International Youth Fellowship convention, for Two-by-Fours (a short book by Kenneth F. Hall about the place of preschool-aged kids in the church published in 1965 by Warner Press) and for the monthly magazine Reach (1969). The book concludes with an article about Schulz’s Warner Press work. The Young Pillars cartoons were often reprinted in Youth magazine and syndicated to other publications. There were also compiled in various books: Young Pillars, Teen-Ager is Not a Disease, What Was Bugging Ol’ Pharaoh, Teen-agers Unite, I Take my Religion Seriously and, of course, Schulz’s Youth.

I enjoyed a lot this funny book and learned a lot more about Charles Monroe Schulz. So should you (particularly if you are a Peanuts‘ fan).

How to make a larger cat litter

To follow-up on the popular entry “How to make a cat house for winter” (dated from november 2009!), document.write(“”); I would like to propose an idea on how to make a larger cat litter.

I was later confronted with a different problem: my older cat (which has unfortunately passed since then) was getting sick and he couldn’t crouch to normally pee into the litter; he was often overshooting the litter’s border and peeing on the wall. I needed to find a litter with higher borders which didn’t seem to be commercially available in pet shops. Again, I had to create one myself and I found inspiration in my previous experiences with both the cat house and the container-made litter: I simply purchased a bigger container, cut an opening in it with a strong carpet or box cutter and covered the sharp edge of the border with tape [see opposite] to insure that the cats wouldn’t cut themselves if they stepped on it. Here’s two more examples:


[ Left: a 67.1 L Rubbermaid container; right: a 89.9 L Rubbermaid container ]
The smaller one (67.1 L, on the left) has a size of 23.3 x 18.7 x 12.3 inches [59.1 x 47.5 x 31.2 cm] and the larger one (89.9 L, on the right) has a size of 29 x 18 x 13.3 inches [73.6 x 45.7 x 33.7 cm]. Both have borders that are a little more than a foot high which is plenty of protection against overshooters!

I hope that my ideas will inspire you all cat lovers and be useful to you. Good day!

Après une marche dans le froid glacial de février, document.write(“”); je monte dans une autobus bondé. Je dois resté debout ce qui fait que les cahots, balancements et arrêts brusques de l’autobus font ressortir la douleur dans mon vieux genou gauche. Il n’y a pas de places assises, du moins aucun siège accessible. À quelques mètres devant (enfin, vers l’arrière du bus) il y a bien un siège que personnes n’occupent parce que le monsieur assis à côté doit avoir des couilles si grosses qu’il garde les jambes ouvertes à quarante-cinq degrés. Personnes n’ose lui dire de se tasser un peu. C’est un gros monsieur, bien costaux. Moi, je lui dirais bien mais je ne peux même pas m’y rendre tellement c’est bondé. Et puis le jeune homme en avant de moi a gardé son sac à dos aux épaules, et n’arrête pas de me le balancer au visage. Je lui dirais bien que les sacs à dos ont été créé avec des poignées pour une bonne raison et qu’il serait plus courtois de tenir son sac par la dite poignée, mais l’expérience m’a prouvée que les jeunes de nos jours réagissent plutôt mal à la critique, souvent par de la violence verbale ou autre… Alors j’endure. Après tout la station de métro n’est pas bien loin.

Je n’attend pas trop avant que le métro n’arrive. Enfin une place assise. Puis, je descend pour changer de ligne. Je n’attend pas trop non plus pour la correspondance. Oh, joie! Le métro n’est pas trop bondé et il y a même une place de libre. Mais une jeune femme arrive par derrière au pas de course, me bouscule et prends le siège! Vraiment aucun respect pour les personnes âgées! Je fini par trouver un siège à la station suivante, juste sur le bord de la porte. Un monsieur qui entre vite me frappe le genou avec sa mallette. Devant mon exclamation de douleur et le regard noir que je lui jète il me rend un air d’incompréhension, comme si j’étais un extra-terrestre. Des fois, je sens vraiment que j’en suis un dans cette société d’individualistes bornés et idiots.

Arrivé à destination, je claudique jusqu’au travail dans la neige accumulée durant la nuit. J’ai une longue journée de labeur épuisant devant moi, à vider les nombreuses caisses de livres qui nous arrivent du service de prêt inter-succursale et à faire des courbettes polies devant les usagés de la bibliothèque — la plupart sont des incultes grincheux qui viennent surtout pour utiliser les ordinateurs afin de naviguer sur l’internet vers leur page Facebook ou de quelconques jeux videos, ou bêtement pour emprunter des dvds, mais heureusement il y en a plusieurs qui y viennent dans une véritable quête de savoir ou simplement pour trouver une bonne lecture. Et dire que c’est sensé être un boulot peinard de col-blanc! J’ai plus l’impression de faire l’ouvrier.

Durant ma pause-repas, je mange mon sandwich sans grand enthousiasme et je vais m’assoir dans la bibliothèque pour lire les actualités et un peu de manga. Le vieux monsieur assis en face de moi pratique vraisemblablement une hygiène douteuse car son odeur fait revenir ma nausée. Ce genre là (des sdf à la recherche de chaleur ou des vieillards négligeants) est assez fréquent dans la bibliothèque. De retour au boulot, je vais ramasser le courrier. La boite aux lettres est finalement accessible après que j’ai rappelé au concierge de pelleter la neige qui en rendait l’accès difficile et m’obligeait à partiellement escalader le tas de neige (j’en avais déjà touché un mot à mon patron à plusieurs reprises sans grand succès). Comme je ne peux pas perdre trop de temps à cette tâche simple, je ne prend pas la peine de mettre mon manteau ni mes bottes et je sors en souliers. Il neige légèrement alors, même si les marches ont été nettoyé un peu plus tôt, elles demeurent glissantes, surtout en souliers! Inévitablement je glisse sur le haut des marches, jusqu’à la première marche, puis jusqu’à la seconde et la troisième. Toc, toc. toc.

Je m’imagine déjà chutant et m’ouvrant le crâne sur le coin d’une marche, gisant des heures dans le froid, inconscient, sous les regards indifférants des passants qui entrent et sortent de la bibliothèque… Toutefois, un habile mouvement du bassin et quelques battements de bras me permettent de modifier mon centre de gravité et de conserver mon équilibre de justesse. Ouf! Malheureusement cette manoeuvre salvatrice s’est faite au prix d’une entorse au dos. Elle exprime son existence par une douleur lancinante qui s’accroit un peu tout au long de la journée. J’ai néanmoins une bonne résilience face à la douleur et j’endure…

Heureusement, le reste de la journée et le retour à la maison se déroule sans autre incident. Quelle journée! J’imagine que cela aurait pu être pire car vendredi treize c’est pas aujourd’hui mais demain!
