Thanks for the compliment, Kay. The new blogger tools for changing the design of the blog are nice.
I was absolutely astounded when I read this story and saw these pictures on MSNBC. Can you imagine a raft of garbage in a major river thick enough for people to walk on? That is what China has just upstream from the Three Gorges Dam. The recent torrential rains have washed it down and concentrated it not far from the dam. The garbage threatens the locks.
