A crash course in changing the world.

It seems as though the world especially developed countries are abusing our world water sources. Our Earth is composed of approximately 75% of water. Therefore, it is really significant that we do everything we can to save our water resources. Here are some tips that will help conserve our water:

1. Put a brick, a bottle filled with sand, or a Hippo / Bog-Hog bag into your toilet cistern. This reduces the amount of water you flush down the toilet.

2. Don't use a hose pipe to wash the car. Use a bucket and sponge.

3. Water plants and the lawn in the evening so that the water has a chance to soak in overnight. If you water in the day time, most of the water will evaporate before it has done any good. Water you've used to boil vegetables can be used to water plants.

4. Take a shower instead of a bath and you will use half as much water.

5. Don't leave the tap running while you clean your teeth or shave. If you leave the tap running you could be wasting up to 10 litres per minute.

6. Only run your washing machine and dishwasher when you have a full load.

7. Repair dripping taps. One drop per second is a waste of up to 3000 gallons per year.

8. Store tap water in a bottle in the fridge rather than running the water every time you want a cold drink.

9. Collect rainwater in a water butt and use it for watering the garden.

10. Lift the blade on your lawnmower so that the grass is cut an inch or two longer so that its roots are shaded and retain water.

If everyone uses these ten tips our water conservationists will have so much less to do.

"Water and air, the two essential fluids on which all life depends, have become global garbage cans."
~Jacques Cousteau (1910-1997)

Fourth of July on the Lake

This past weekend was the annual celebration at the lake house in Connecticut. It is amazing that the lake is still so clear and beautiful after all these years. The watershed association has done a wonderful job protecting these waters from the damaging effects of development.The wood grill was finally ready to cook on, so we didn't miss the propane tank fueled grill anymore. The food actually tasted fresher than in the past and was easy to keep fueled.Dad was very proud of the solar hybrid…See More

Future

FutureToday is 2020/1/1. It is just like yesterday. The war is still continuing. It has started since 2010. In 2010, that year was a horrible year. Almost every energy ran out. Every country’s governments were crushed down at the same time. There were riots everywhere. All of the big company’s bosses were killed xdeadx in the riots. Troops fought each other everywhere. Food was bought up xawayx at once. There were no more food supplies in any shops. The economy was all crushed down. All the…See More

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.
