### Southwest

A mother and her very young son were flying Southwest Airlines from Kansas City to Chicago. The little boy (who had been looking out the window) turned to his mother and asked, "If big dogs have baby dogs, and big cats have baby cats, why don't big airplanes have baby airplanes?"
The mother (who couldn't think of an answer) told her son to ask the stewardess.
So the boy went down the aisle and asked the stewardess. The stewardess, who was very busy at the time, smiled and said, "Did your Mom tell you to ask me?"
The boy said, "yes she did."

"Well, then, you go and tell your mother that there are no baby airplanes because Southwest always pulls out on time. Have your Mom explain that to you."

### Water softener patent

In 1937, a patent was issued to Leroy C. Lind for the Servisoft water softener (U.S. No. 2,087,157). The invention used a regeneratable granulated mineral, such as zeolite, which was already in use by domestic water softening systems using a permanent bed of the material. Leroy Lind devised a method that would be easier and faster to maintain. It would be less costly, and enabled the spent mineral to be regenerated collectively from a number of installations at a central location. The softener was packaged in water pervious, flexible walled cartridges or sacks sized to stack several vertically within a tall cylindrical tank connected to the water supply line. The contents of the sacks would settle to seal against the interior surface of the tank. The tank had a removable top to facilitate switching with renewed sacks.«
