Suzy’s Adopt Her Peeps Day

It was five years ago today that a nine year old ragamuffin dog adopted us. Suzy has been the apple of our eye ever since. Of course she has us well trained and we happily take her whims in stride.

She does a great job tending Mum's iris garden in front. It takes time and energy and Suzy expects to be well paid for her effort.

We love you Suzy and thank you for your gracious tolerance of our human ways.

Grandpa

Playtime, two bottles, two naps, burps and a diaper change. Getting a hang of this Grandpa thing. 😊

Our 2007 Prius still going strong. Will take 52 miles per gallon any day.

Keystone Pipeline Letter

Dear Mr. Kerry,

 

The Keystone XL pipeline will tranport an incredibly corrosive and deadly product across our country with the real possibility of destroying wildlife habitats, polluting our groundwater and surface waterways and destroying people's way of life. All this for a neighboring country whose government's attitude towards climate change is diametrically opposed to our own beliefs and for a few jobs. Big money from big business is the only support this pipeline has. Its proponents care nothing of the environment. An environment we have a stewardship to maintain come climate change or big money. If we do not have a clean and viable environment to live in then what else matters? So some brothers may make more money? They can't count what they already have. They are selfish and if our government gives in to their misinformation and dubious tactics it is just as selfish. It is the coming generations that will reap the horrors of the pipeline approval. This is the defining moment of the present administration. Will their commitment to a cleaner, healthier and safer world turn out to be real or another lie and disappointment? The real people have spoken. Your legacy and our future is in your hands. Choose wisely.

Thank you.

California Drought

Will the California drought scuttle the Delta Tunnels? Hope so.

Be sure to say #helloNSA in all your tweets, posts, messages and emails. The #NSA will like that as they plow through useless information.
