Plastic for Your Health

What's with umbrellas?

Doesn't it seem strange to you that when there is lightening dancing in the sky we raise a metal pole (with a framework of metal poles) to the sky? Does it just not occur to us that we are asking for a good jolt?

When one hears about someone else's home and property getting a bolt from the blue, plastic sounds like a good idea.

Just a thought.
