About a billion Valentine’s Day cards are exchanged each year. That’s the largest seasonal card-sending occasion of the year, next to Christmas. No matter what Hallmark’s been telling you, there is nothing sweet about the trees eliminated and carbon emissions produced by this yearly outpouring of “love,” so opt for organic potted plants, flowers and maybe even herbs. These will last much longer and can be planted in the spring.
The U. S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) maintains a Web portal that talks about energy topics in plain language. “Energy Explained” includes topics such as where gasoline comes from, what determines the price of electricity, how much renewable energy the United States uses and much more. The site allows easy navigation among six major energy topics: what is energy, use of energy, energy and the environment, nonrenewable energy sources, renewable sources and secondary energy sources. Visit the site today at www.eia.doe.gov/energyexplained and learn more about something that touches us in many ways every day.

I’m sitting in the bus, and these two people are talking about how they wished that some of that technology on Star Trek would come true. Like the lapel button you can push to talk to someone. I simply replied “I want one of those communication devices that you can talk to anyone anywhere. Oh we have those, it’s called a cell phone. And your button, it’s called blue tooth headset.”
This started with my watching of F@x Ooz about “Do you believe Global Warming is real?”
Seriously?? Do you believe that Science is real? I mean that’s the question you’re asking. Are you real? Only the people that “Believe” that global warming isn’t real are the same people that “believe” computers are run by black magic inside.
Seriously people, we live in the modern age. If Science is real, then Global Warming is real. If you don’t believe that, get out of my society and go back to the trees that you belong in!
