I’m trying to stay current and relavant . . . therefore, if you don’t see a new blog on Scoop1942, then check out my other blog ‘Arm-chair tourist et al’. Note this teaser: indoor plumbing was invented circa 1500 B.C., but American building codes didn’t require indoor plumbing until the 1920’s. By the way, out houses are still used today although most are called port-a-potty and are used in temporary settings like construction sites and at festivals and outdoor events where large crowds gather.
