Good morning Ti - I got my garden all planted over the past two days - 80 degrees and I have a tiny bit of a sunburn on my nose (despite my best efforts)....can you envision having to turn your air conditioner on in mid March? Sending warmth your way.....
We’ve been having a heat wave. 70s during the day, mid 50s at night. Sleeping with the windows cracked open. Big rumbling thunderstorm in the wee hours.
Where is Al Gore? He should be all over this.
She just finished the first 3 days of standardized testing, so she’s happy not to have to do that today.
She got selected for County Band, too. I didn’t even know they did such a thing for 5th graders.
She is such a damn hobag it’s not even funny and what’s worse is she needs to scream it from the mountaintops.
She’s only missing green nail polish ; ) shes a cutie!
Oh I have meant to tell you all: I got an email from my electricity provider the other day giving me the opportunity to save the environment by signing up to purchase Carbon Offsets for $5.95 a month! Seriously....it is starting.
Do you have electricity supplier choice down there? I can decide who I buy my power generation from (distribution and that is still from the local utility).
I do not voluntarily pay extra to use companies that make green power.
Good grief carbon offset they must be insane!
A+++ off to the showers with you!
Al “Massage My Lower Chakra” Gore is busy at the moment, but do call on him again soon.
Just give me the $. A++
hopefully, it’s a little late for that scam. I shudder to think of the elderly being suckered in.
Grow a beard and start writing about deer going to the bathroom in the woods and you’ve got a second career as an English teacher at any American university. And with your math degree, at least you’ll be able to figure out the mean score from 5 tests, which is something my college English teacher couldn’t do.
Arithmetic mean or geometric mean?
We can choose our supplier but this isn’t mandatory, it is a “Feel good” donation, monthly. lol
Exactly - and there will be idiots who do it thinking they are buying something
Spring is a time of renewal, and now you can help support the environment through a low, flat monthly fee. Your contribution will go toward the purchase of carbon offsets to reduce the harmful effects of carbon dioxide and greenhouse gases. Donations will also be made to EarthShare of Texas®, which supports 38 environmental programs right here in Texas.
Choose from two program options:
Enroll in Reliant EcoShare
It is 68 here-breezy and mostly cloudy-a typical March day-
As Obama is squeezed harder
His back is against the wall
But he plays the blame game-
Digs in and continues to stall
He ignores that we are not happy-
We don’t laugh and gambol about
And every time we buy some gas
We just go back home to pout
So have fun, king Louis wannabe-
Both you and Michelle Antoinette
Come November you’ll be leaving
Without the limo, golf cart or jet...
