Go Barack!

I am so proud of the speech given by our newest President. He talked about healthcare and broke down the health-scare that is flying about on the airways. He is calling on us and our lawmakers to use our heads, not our fears, to determine what is ultimately right for the better of our people of the United States of America. As I have time, hopefully I will attach a link to his speech.

Sockeye for your eye

Here is more from this past weekend trip.

The Sockeye were swimming up from Wallowa Lake. It was fun to watch.

What surprised me was the lack of information for tourists to read. No signs were posted suggesting people to stay out of the river bed. Why should you not go into the river? First off you scare the fish. Second, you may unintentionally step on a redd, in other words smother the eggs the poor fish died to put there.

Western Drives

I love driving out west and here is why:

Amy and I went to Joseph, OR on Sunday and Monday. Albeit a bit chilly, we hiked, ate and drank our selves merry. Henry had fun too.

Pictures will be posted soon.

Bottled water destroys local water supplies

Do you drink bottled water?
Do you believe it is better for you?
Do you know where the water is coming from?
Do you care?

Watch this section of Democracy Now. At the tail end of the section, a few other brand names are called out to be questioned on the impact to the environment and people who's aquifers are drying up so water can be stored on a shelf for your luxury.

Should you be more interested in what Frack-Drilling is doing to the drinking water of citizens of Colorado and Wyoming click on the Democracy Now web page to watch the remaining time of the above episode. Petroleum equals pollution. This includes natural gas, oil, and gasoline...what are we to do?

Dang, I am in a pissy mood.

Dancing fool

MAkes me want to DANCE!!!

Grill Time!

My parents visited this summer and bought me a Smokey Joe grill. I have greatly enjoyed grilling up the wonderful organic vegetables brought to the table by Soil Stewards, the UI student CSA farm.

As one can see, the dogs patiently lay in wait...
