American_Recycle_dayAmerica Recycles Day (ARD) is the only nationally recognized day dedicated to encouraging Americans to recycle and buy recycled products. ARD is celebrated November 15. Hundreds of events are held across the U.S. to raise awareness about the importance of recycling and to encourage Americans to sign personal pledges to recycle and buy recycled products.

On November 15 each year, millions of people become better informed about the importance of daily recycling and buying recycled products. The purpose of America Recycles Day is to continue to promote the social, environmental and economic benefits of recycling and encourage more people to join the movement toward creating a better natural environment.

It really does all come back to us!PP_weloveearth

  1. Yesterday the Girl Scouts came by and picked up eight grocery sacks of newspapers and magazines. But the local Walmart has stopped accepting recyclable plastic and aluminum because too many people were taking advantage of the service.

    I take the long view. In nine billion years everything in our solar system will be recycled when the sun goes red giant, so I don’t spend a lot of my time on it…

    I will admit that with the election of Barrack Obama I no longer feel as there are things that will not happen.
    It was a bright spot in a otherwise dismal out look on the future of the United States.

    A post above reminded me of a joke, not a politically correct one at that.
    Forgive me but I will tell the joke to show how the feelings were going:

    Jessie Jackson was talking to God and asked him, “God will there be a woman elected President?”
    God said, “No Jessie not in your life time!”.

    Then Jackson asked, “God will a Black man be elected President?”
    God shook his head and answered, “No Jessie not in my life time!”.

    President Obama does have many heavy things on his shoulders.
    Not the least of them is that he is a first in a history that does not look it would be likely.

    Now on to less heavy thoughts and enough said.

    My curiosity finally got the best of me and I ask my wife.
    If she was intending that the inside of the cabinets be painted too?

    A possible explanation for why she is busying herself “cleaning for painting” and her clearing out the cabinets. So the outside doors and frames could be painted.

    Her answer was no?

    The life long task of a man is to try and understand a woman, at times the answer to the meaning of life is more clear!

    • Will you take the doors off to paint them? Maybe she wants them to look tidier during the painting process. Or maybe she just wants the inside to look as good as possible without being panted. Or… 🙂

  6. He’s doing fine, tstb. Don’t let the turkeys get you down. The Party of No has nothing except complaints, so let them wallow in their misery. Our country made it through eight long years of bush and his ruinous administration, we have a far superior president in place and even tho the challenges are great, we will be fine.

      LOL it is not the turkeys about the President that get me down it is the turkeys in general that do.
      Too many times of see the course taken and thought a good course to follow.
      Makes me feel like the last Lemming in line for the cliff and the answer I get as to why are we going over.
      Is “Hey why ask why? It seems a good idea at the time!”.
