I have to chuckle when i read the pointers as in today's 'vote with your fork' article.
we are all stuffing our own carry bags every where these days - or else you pay 5 cents - ok let's stop right there - IF IT IS BAD FOR THE ENVIRONMENT it should not be available - not for any amount of coinage -
the answer is some one in the industry jumped on another 'make money by pick pocketing our customers' scheme.
the same for your BLUE BOX - many people are making money on many levels with that one - first the guy who thought up the blue box, sold it to all the municipalities and now it is law - either you put your stuff in it or it won't get taken. BUT I SAY AGAIN - IF IT IS BAD FOR THE ENVIRONMENT it should not be used to have to throw out. there is HUGE MONEY in trash. (the mob knew this all along didn't they??)
my ex husband worked for a company that developed a gallon milk container which incinerated down to less than one tsp of ash - THAT WAS IN 1978 - and it was buried by the company because there was big money in the cartons coming along, the baggies etc. to replace the glass milk bottles.
THERE WAS NO CONCERN about the environment - and there still isn't - the concern is with the money that's in it and not getting in the way of profits.-
i recently bought baby gifts - toys, wipes, and puzzles - YOU GUESS RIGHT - - packed up tight in enough plastic -hard impenitrable plastic that an army weapons unit would have a difficult time opening them.
this brings me back to shopping bags. how annoying that;
1. i need to keep several cloth/poly bucket bags either in my purse (impossible ladies right?)-
2. on front seat - equals on floor, under seat and impossible to get out from underneath
3. in the trunk usually means going in the store without them - so then after i check out and say 'no i don't need bags' to the cashier - i take all the stuff out and put into the bags in the trunk myself. it is inconvenient, and in the inclement weather OH WHAT FUN!!!!
4. THE REUSED BAGS BECOME SATURATED WITH E COLI, and other nasty stuff - i use so many little plastic bags to wrap chicken, meat, and other wet packages - SO i use more plastic that i would normally use if it was a regular brown paper bag.
5. you cannot wash most of these bags so they will be discarded - into the landfill - and then you need more cloth/poly bags and we start it all over again.
WHAT'S WRONG WITH THIS PICTURE.
it is all such a crock! why do we have to continually be subjected to this silliness and expected to 'believe' what they are saying?

Hello up there- on Nov. 10/10 - i sent you a letter that had a very important question in it. a letter that told you how i felt, along with many of our family. a letter stating 'Your unfair practice' of taking a beautiful gentle soul away from us and back up to You.
I really have not had an adequate reply - oh sure, there have been little signs and notes, by way of realizations in my logical mind. also by way of dreams, and some conversations with family and friends. also by way of others who have experienced the death of a lovely irreplaceable child - a blue eyed beauty with such a way about her, that it makes a heart melt. with hugs and laughter, and comments and insights that could never be matched ever ever again.
but God - with all the evil that lurks down here - why would YOU go there?? it is so unimagineable to me - it is not logical, not just, not fair. i told You in my letter that any one of us - Nay even several of us - would have gladly taken her place.
i guess You say to me - 'ahh but now that is very selfish on your part because you would be spared the immense heartache you have had to go through. heartache which I exact up you because I know you can do it1"
Well i have heard that before - and frankly it does not wash with me. i see many of us down here who have much much much more of a burden than should be bourne by any human. i see many little creatures of Yours also used, abused, thrown away - why Lord = why?? what does that teach -? children going with out the normal necessary love in their lives to get through a day , never mind a life time. Lord - be honest - have You truly abandoned us down here. do You feel we are another Sodom and Gamorrah??
i am putting extra postage on this one- i am sending it same day courier in the hopes i get some answers - i don't want to wait until i reach the pearly gates to have this conversation - i am so serious - BB

hi you very necessary and important people -
my question to any of you is, how do you instill ambition, hope and a promise of success in your students? How do you curb the disillusionment they must all be touched with - in this society where ''Snookie is to be envied and imitated' and the 'wives of PICK ANY OF THE CITIES THEY COME FROM' make all the girls salivate at wasting their days, lives and money on utter stupidity?
No wonder so many have no work ethic - and why would they be loyal to any employer when there is nothing at the end of the rainbow?
once all the politicians and their greed have Wall Street, the big corporations have every thing else all wrapped up - who will be the next generation to teach?
It seems programs such as Survivor script everyone into non ethical, downright mean underhanded tactics and the kids eat it up.
So i really would love to hear from any educator - and i thank you for being on the front lines everyday - believe me - i feel your pain. BB
