I'll Salutre That

a: Farting ~
b: a badge of honor

What: "LOL that's hilarious. Yeah in my family, farting is like a badge of honor, but not so much in my hubby's. He's gotten used to it...but the people in Cape Verde aren't so forgiving. I tried the "sneak one out and look around innocently" and they start talking about the smell and where did that some from...it's considered very rude here."

It Varies From Place To Place

a: Ozone layer ~
b: a patchwork quilt

What: "The ozone layer is like a patchwork quilt. It will vary in strength from one location to the other. It is not one smooth, homogenous layer and never has been. It varies just like the temperature, wind and pressures vary from one location on the surface to another."
