I didn’t know there are websites dedicated to how to take care of your car living in the desert heat, a place that wasn’t designed for cars which includes the paint, rubber (think tires, wipers, and the trim along your windows), and windshields.

So what would Moses have to say about how to keep your carpet clean? Me? I’m considering placing a bin next to the front door to put shoes in when I come home.
Like a camel I need to carry water around with me. I don’t ever remember anything being mentioned in the story of exodus that you don’t sweat in the desert like you do other in other climates as the water quickly evaporates from your skin.

Once again, here’s more missing information.
I realize Moses had other problems and I’m sure some of these details weren’t on his To Do list but delegated to I’d dare say the women.
