Books 2

The activated sludge process is a wastewater treatment method in which the carbonaceous organic matter of wastewater provides an energy source for the production of new cells for a mixed population of microorganisms in an aquatic aerobic environment. The microbes convert carbon into cell tissue and oxidized end products that include carbon dioxide and water. In addition, a limited number of microorganisms may exist in activated sludge that obtain energy by oxidizing ammonia nitrogen to nitrate nitrogen in the process known as nitrification.

But can you imagine answering the phone?......"Good Morning, activated sludge how can I help you?"

HA! Are they ever taken seriously, I wonder??? grin

Now I don't have to wonder about that one any more...

They should call it "Shiite In Shoes" or something like that.
Bill Phillips: I am not sure that is much of an improvement Raygrin

hahah, wouldn't you just love to be that companies receptionist
Bill Phillips: I don't think so!! also imagine business cardsgrin
Very well put together shot.

I bet you love browsing through your Lions book stock - old advertising is wonderful, mainly because time has changed the meaning or implication of many words.
Bill Phillips: I do indeed Sheila and I expect a few more will feature from time to time
A little job for the image consultants, I believe, Bill. No doubt for vast sums of money they can come up with some fancy name! I like the expression on the mug(?).. most appropriate.
Bill Phillips: It is a teapot Alan. a treasured (but probably valueless) possession that originally belonged to my grandmother. Ti is a fish swallowing a smaller fish which makes the spout and the tail is the handle.

I am sure Radio 1's Scott Mills would love this as a prank call.
Not sure I would want to work there.tonguetongue
Bill Phillips: Nor Igrin
Out of curiosity I just googled this teapot and it is Staffordshire Majolica circa 1900
Ha, you laugh but I used to manage a company that made perforated rubber diaphragms (amongst other things) for this very purpose. They can be used for cleaning up polluted rivers and waterways, by re-oxygenating the water as well as in small scale water treatment plants.
Bill Phillips: Well it clearly hasn't done you any harm Mike
I'm going to avoid this completely. It's a well known facty that if you mess with er umm shall we call it sludge ... you find it sticks.

A fine stilleven- but, sorry, my intellect must capitulate while reading your words and the book pages, even if they were translated in German! I agree with Socrates: "I know that I don't know anything"!
Bill Phillips: I know that I know even less than you Dear Philinesmile
Fascinating concept Bill, but I would have thought they could have come up with a more catchy name.
Bill Phillips: None that could be used here I suspectgrin
Well seen and captured Bill. There are quite a few unfortunate names around!
Bill Phillips: Indeed there are Richard.

Love that splash of colour
Bill Phillips: That's my old grannies teapot, which I have loved as long as I can remember!
'Good morning ses pit systems'might have a better ring to it Bill.
Bill Phillips: You will go far in marketing Chad....but not far enough
And then somebody gets down in to it and starts to shovel it away. Uuuurgh!
Bill Phillips: Well as long as it isn't you or megrin
I couldnt answer incoming calls with a name like that Bill..LOL..LOL. Say no more !!!
Bill Phillips: I would never be able to keep a straight face.
Very funny Bill.
Bill Phillips: It made me chuckle grin
Wonderful picture : A likey !
