Salmon return to Thames

In 1974, a salmon was discovered in the River Thames, England, for the first time since 1833. The 8-lb 4½-ozoz female was discovered entangled in the protective nets around West Thurrock power station.* The find was so surprising that the fish was sent to the British Museum for positive identification. Victorian era sewage and factory waste had polluted the once thriving salmon river, and by 1849 the fish had disappeared. On 7 Jul 1855, Michael Faraday wrote inThe Times regarding the putrid state of the Thames. From 1961, improved sewage treatment and limits on industrial discharges gradually brought about a cleaner river. Since the salmon's life cycle requires a high standard of water quality, the species indicates environmental quality.«

Nun of Your Business

While shopping in a food store, two nuns happened to pass by the beer, wine, and liquor section. One asked the other if she would like a beer. The second nun answered that, indeed, it would be very nice to have one, but that she would feel uncomfortable purchasing it. The first nun replied that she would handle it without a problem. She picked up a six-pack and took it to the cashier. The cashier was surprised, so the nun said, “This is for washing our hair. ”Without blinking an eye, the cashier reached under the counter and put a package of pretzel sticks in the bag with the beer. “The curlers are on me.”
