must read blog post about plastic

"I think we all can agree that the war on plastic is being lost.  Gift cards and the complacene of the masses in discarding them properly has, in essence, destroyed the will of the people to recycle en masse."

Well put and Brava, Tinley Carter Maxwell! Ms. Carter Maxwell is my hero and the most respected voice currently not being silenced by plastic manufacturers.  She is an activist and a survivor(looong story) and though this blog has only added to my journey's dissapointment meter I thought it couldn't hurt to come on and do my bit to make this world more hospitable.

As my readers know I've been beset by indigence and so I can't afford a child from Kazakstan etc and so I can't really be an activist for anything but the here and now.  In other words, I don't have a child and so I can't say, " let's do it for the children or my children's generation " without it sounding artificial. Sooooooo, I'll spin it into a positive by insisting that without a future generation to worry about my mission will have a much needed immediacy.

It's working for me, at least, and my advocacy work against brita filters has finally began to reap real world rewards.  Just yesterday, I got a call from the Kroger people and there people are now instructed to say this at checkout: " Are paper bags an acceptable alternative?"  Those who have been forced out of Whole foods and have had to shop at the Kroger stores(Ralphs, Food For less, others that I forget) know that for the longest time this was what they were to expect at checkout: " Is plastic ok?"

Law students and lawyers and viewers of tv and movies will recognize that as  the leading question it is.
Studies now show that this question led to patrons(who otherwise could be influenced) just saying, "yeah."  Studies show that 8 out of 10 consumers weren't sure if saying no, in this instance, would cause the checkout lady to consider them, " uptight" or "crunchy granola tree hugging dweebs" and there are no studies as to what these checkout people were really thinking and in so many words... it was a MESS -- ESSENTIALLY.

Yeah, I'm screaming. Now, that studies show that spanking is best I'm thinking that screaming might be ok too. Alisa has just texted  me this in reference to this post, " Spanking and screaming by way of media savvy experts and stupid ass studies." 
She needs to meditate and I've just texted that to her. Oh, now she's writing something and I need to go and find a way to get rid of her whilst(half brit here) avoiding any angry outbursts.

I truly believe that we have reached the point where technology has become one with our society, and I think it is safe to say that we have passed the point of no return in our relationship with technology.

I don't mean this in a bad way, of course! Ethical concerns aside... I just hope that as the price of memory drops, the possibility of downloading our memories onto a digital medium becomes a true reality. It's one of the things I really wish I could encounter in my lifetime.

The French gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne has a wonderful aroma, a rich taste; the saltiness increases with the incidence of veining. The overall flavor is piquant but not overly sharp. Bleu d'Auvergne started life as an imitation of Roquefort, using cow's milk in place of sheep's milk. Legend has it that a peasant, around 1845, decided to inject his cheese with a blue mold that he found growing on his left-over bread (the motto being, waste not, want not). And thus, the gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne was born. This French gourmet blue cheese comes from the region of Auvergne and the cheese is made from milk of Salers and Aubrac cows. The rind is very thin and so the cheese is usually wrapped in foil. The cheese is rich and creamy with a pale yellow color and scattered holes and well-defined greenish-blue veining. We cut and wrap this cheese in wedge of 8 ounces and 1 pound.

Do you think the best way to get the cheapest plane tickets is by calling the airline? Or, do you scan through hundreds of websites provided by search engines to find low airfare tickets? Maybe you hope to find cheap airfare in the local newspaper's travel section.
Finding cheap airline tickets can be one of the most frustrating experiences that most of us learn very quickly. Of course, most people eventually give up after spending hours scanning websites that offer virtually the same flight schedules and pricing. People purchase what they believe is the cheapest plane ticket, only to find their neighbor paid just a third of what they did!

Unless you understand the concept of of how airlines set prices, all the searching in the world won't provide the cheapest airline ticket prices. The following information will give you a guide to follow, as you wander through the maze searching for cheap airfare.

Understand how prices are set by airlines! Air ticket pricing is complex and unpredictable, and driven by competition, demand, and inventory. Airlines call this "yield management."

Competition is the beast behind the cheapest plane tickets. All major airlines utilize central reservation systems (owned by various airlines) to fill available seats. The systems are known as Apollo, Sabre, WorldSpan and Galileo. Prices are based on demand, and if some flights are selling well, the price will increase. If the flight is unpopular and has very little demand, the fare is lowered in hope of attracting consumers. In short, fares and inventory change every minute of every day!

Finding the cheapest plane tickets is difficult because travel agents and Internet websites use the central reservation systems that are updated periodically throughout the day. The reason why different searches come up with different results is because the systems are not updated at the same times. And, each system may use different algorithms when searching for low airfare tickets, which can provide a variety of ticket prices .

If you have been really searching for helpful information concerning [url=]Thoi trang nam[/url], then we feel this article may be what you are looking for. As you know, it can be highly irritating when you are not entirely sure of what you need in order to move forward with certainty. There are many individuals who publish great content online, but they are not known, and that makes it very hard with trusting them. Probably just about every person knows all too well with the online environment. The following information and facts concerning this specific topic is recognized and easily referenced.

The general difficulties of women's and men's fashion

Both women and men may have the pressures of keeping their clothing up-to-date and in season, yet men's fashion usually seems a lot simpler. Of course, for both genders, clothes and style options may be quite as complicated, and there are several'trendy'items that could quickly become fashion faux pas - who is able to say they often see people walking around in 70s flames? On the other hand, men's fashion has a few staple items which can exist forever - which man is likely to keep an eye out of place with a good-quality, tailored suit, for instance? Pick traditional pieces, colours and fabrics and you'll never look out-of-place.

Why basic men's fashion is eternal

The common man's suit has scarcely changed for over a hundred years. True, there are numerous varieties for various occasions, nevertheless they are all popular in their search for a smart, sharp look for the individual. The best part about traditional fashion for men is that it's efficiently fashionable efficiently neat. A well-groomed lady can more often than not look his sharpest in a well-tailored suit, and this can be a testament to the design of such clothing. A match will undoubtedly be worn to work in many jobs due to the professional look it affords to the person, instilling a sense of respect and confidence. Equally a match will be used to several social events, such as a tuxedo to a black-tie event. This incredible versatility that enables suits to be used in just about all occasions is what gives it its eternal border and a lasting place in men's fashion.

Contemporary trends in classic men's fashion

Although common men's styles can never be replaced, it is interesting to note that changes in men's fashion trends have produced particular basic clothes back into fashion. The popularity of vintage clothing, specifically, has had back a wide-variety of classic types into men's closets, such as that of the dandy man. 'Dandy'is a term used to reference men who dress yourself in a classic yet extravagant way, acting in a polished manner and placing importance on appearance. This trend for nearly'over-the-top'classic style for men is evident from events including the'Tweed Run', where men and women of all ages dress yourself in significantly Victorian-style attire and take to the streets on vintage cycles - with most of the men sporting impeccable mustaches! That is just one of many samples of evidence displaying the resurgence of such variations. There are also numerous sites on the web which concentrate on gentlemanly style - such as'The Dandy Project'and'Dandyism'- as well as complete web sites such as'The Art of Manliness'specialized in providing articles on basic men's fashion and grooming.

In summary, though certain issues with common men's fashion can be cut back as new developments, the essential outfits that they are based on will never fall out of fashion.

"All it takes are a few basic garments. And there's one key - the simpler the better." - Cary Grant
