My Google-Fu Is Strong

We're setting up for our Beltane event today. One of the things we've decided to use in the ritual is a mist fountain, similar to this. We couldn't find the instructions, though, and the mister gizmo lit up but didn't start moving the water around. So I came back to my office, typed in "mist fountain operation instructions," and hey presto! There they were. I printed out a couple of versions, we figured out that the water water too shallow and added more water, the gizmo kicked on, and the mist emerged.

I love it when I can find quick answers like that.

In case you're curious, we are celebrating Beltane as a purification/protection ritual. It will involve passing between two fires (woodstove and candles), then past the mist in the west, and some other stuff. I'm looking forward to it.

Also we have a tandoori-pasted chicken in the rotisserie oven, a pot of dal makhani in the crock pot, and mango ice cream in the freezer. Coconut shrimp are yet to be made. (With the exception of the ice cream, these are mostly Doug's territory, though I did paint the chicken.)
