Yoo hoo, Summit attendees, where ever you are,

Most of you will be staying at motels in the area. I'm wondering how
to coordinate transportation from the inn to studio. Perhaps if you
could let us know which motel you will be in we can see how many can
share the expense of a rental car - or who will have wheels with them
and can transport another person. Will one of you with better
organizational skills than I give me some suggestions for how to
harness this beast?

I wondered what Thymol was also...
and found out that it's an ingredient in Listerine:
It was discovered in 1719...purified in found in thyme and monarda....
I found it's history interesting:
What I did run into was some very interesting information about
The Effects of Thymol on Paper, Pigments & Media:

Talas sells Thymol as "a highly effective fungicide....a 10% solution in ethyl alcohol can be added to wheat and
rice pastes to control mold...."
which is interesting because after reading the Palimpsest information, I got to wondering about alcohol...

does this mean, picking some thymol crystals up from the drugist will allow one to concoct their own 10% solution?

(I was just in the perfect mood to do some homework...
especially, since I'm thinking about putting something in the water...
sometimes I don't like surprizes....) about all that!

In the mean time,
I'm doing the freezer method while I let all this roll around in my head.
