Happy Anniversary to Debbie and Tom Flores. 35 big years! Wow, guys. That's great. HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!
Today is "Earth Day" .... the continuation of a 1970 environmental movement to press on the climate change ideas and how to live more 'green'. Earth Day 1970 capitalized on the emerging consciousness, channeling the energy of the anti-war protest movement and putting environmental concerns front and center. And then Al Gore won a Nobel Prize for his efforts to impart greater knowledge about man-made climate change and how to live 'green'... yeah, like he does in his zillion dollar mansions that are heated and cooled with lack of concern by him! Gore's "inconvenient truth" is that — there's no tactful way to say this — we gas-guzzling, SUV-flaunting, comfort-addicted humans, wallowing in our own self-indulgences, have screwed up the planet. We've hauled prodigious quantities of fossil fuels out of the ground where they belong, combusted them to release carbon dioxide (CO2) into the sky where it shouldn't be, and now we're going to burn for our sins.
Stupidity and hypocrisy – as well as vanity are Mr. Gore's traits. Do as I say, not as I do! ...............Ok, off the box!
Historically this date...
1945 – World War II: Führerbunker: After learning that Soviet forces have taken Eberswalde without a fight, Adolf Hitler admits defeat in his underground bunker and states that suicide is his only recourse.
.......too bad he wasn't caught and put in an oven to die! JUSTICE.
2000 – In a pre-dawn raid, federal agents seize six-year-old Elián González from his relatives' home in Miami, Florida.
Commentators have suggested that the Elián González affair may have been a factor in voters' decisions in the 2000 United States presidential election, which could have affected the close outcome in Florida. Al Gore's handling of the matter may have been as great a factor as anger by the predominantly Republican Cuban community over the boy's return to Cuba. Gore initially supported Republican legislation to give the boy and his father permanent residence status, but later supported the Administration position. He was attacked by both for pandering and being inconsistent.
And births this date include....
Yesterday we did a 'test' ride with Dude on the golf cart. He did pretty good until we got down to the trash can and I took it up to the road.... he pulled out of his collar and followed me! YIKES! Cars are going 45-55 mph on the road and thank GOD he listened to me and stopped! So.... next thing is that since he has this need to go wherever I go, he's getting a harness to keep him from doing that!
We stopped at Dave and PJ's to see what they were up to.. They had a burn pile and with their pitchfork they were cookin' hot dogs!
Actually they are a couple.... and the American Gothic painting is of a farmer and his 'spinster' daughter!
Sun's coming out. Jason up here today to do some weed-eating for me and vine and berry bush trimming. I worked on it yesterday but my back can only take an hour or so ..... I know..... wuss!
Happy Monday. Nuff said. Ciao.
