Hey folks,

I'm in the field all day. If you're lucky, I'll come back all inspired and hyped up, and I'll tell you all about how to control water levels in canals.

We're all waiting with baited breath :)
(But seriously, it probably is interesting).

Well, I for one am waiting with bated breath.

Not that I wish to cast any dispersions on what Peter chooses to scent his breath with.

Mmm. Herring.

Let's all now launch into an extended discussion of whether herring makes acceptable bait, and if so, for what, and if not, what other bait alternatives are out there and what uses they can be put to. Okay?

Damn, noone took the bait.

"Bated breath" is, indeed, the technically correct spelling, but "baited breath" is commonly used and may end up completely displacing "bated."

. . . and may end up completely displacing "bated.

But until that day, I will continue to make weak jokes about it.

Be patient guys. I am right now writing up a very long explanation of how to keep water levels constant in canals. With, for you, real equations. I'm all squirmy with enthusiasm.

Equations? I didn't learn any of that in college. Why don't you dumb it down so we can all understand it?

The suspense is killng me...

I don't know if this is your field but it WOULD be interesting to know what's going on with the control of water levels in New Orleans. Have they changed the system?
