  1. I hate to boast but I already do that. So now I feel guilty because I can't make a contribution to use reduction.

    1. Oh Geeb. You're going to have to deal with that guilt. Can you turn it into a teeny weeny bit of pride?

  2. I've already seen this on another blog..... good, simple advice..... but judging by the fact that there are always piles of paper towels discarded in the urinals at the pub where I work..... not many people have watched or taken notice of it!!

    1. AF, perhaps you would consider turning the footie off the big screen down the end of the place where you work, and playing this clip on a continuous loop? You could save money for the pub, and yourself the hassle of cleaning up the urinals.

  3. Well today I had occasion to visit a public convenience and as I went to wash my hands I followed the instructions!
    Other than the fact that you flick water everywhere and therefore cause a bit of a mess when there are lots of people doing it it was all good and my hands were dry.
    Problem is, many places only have those air drying thingies.... and often I leave in disgust when I can't make them come on !!

    1. Ah yes, there would be a bit of water around with the flicking. Ok in summer I guess. You win a small origami rosette made from one of the saved towels, inscribed with the words "I am saving the rainforest a towel at a time". Well done!

  4. Okay, I'll do it, but where do I store all the paper towels I save?

  5. That's the first time I've ever been shown how to dry my hands. My life will never be the same again. 12, remember 12.

    1. I know Cro - I had to smile at the guy's enthusiasm. 'Ted Talks' are usually about more, ah, MOMENTOUS things. But then again, I've forgotten most of them!

  6. A peculiar acting kind of fellow named Robert who lives in Georgia, USA, told his readers that you are giving away paintings of grapes to hang in their kitchens. I like paintings of grapes to hang in my kitchen.

    As for paper towels in restrooms, I just give my hands a little shake and then dry them on my pants. That way, I hardly ever have to wash my pants.

    1. Snowbrush, I wonder if that's the same Robert who won a little competition of mine. Perhaps I should have another... I see I'm nearly at 50,000 visitors. OK, you're on. The person who is the 50,000th visitor to this blog will win a bunch of grapes, hand-painted by me. If it's that mysterious person from Mountain view California, or anyone else I cannot identify, it will go to the ... oh this is getting too complicated...
      Tell you what. I'll do the old hat thing. So, every comment for the next two weeks will go into the draw. OK? I'll do a post to this effect.

      As to your trousers joke, ha ha hahahaha! I spat on my screen. A mark of a really good joke, in my opinion!
      Reminds me of the Pears' soap joke... "40 years ago I used your soap, since when I have used no other"
