And Life 2 Go

Book your trip soon, folks

If you want to see coral within the next few years, get to the Carribean fast.

Carribean Coral Suffers Record Death

I don't know what else to say, except that global warming is happening. The majority of people who deny it do so because it means their precious Repubilican party and George Bush may look bad.

Look folks, at least for this issue, let's just toss the partisanship aside. Who gives a rats ass as to who caused it; let's just fix it before it's too late. Let's have good ol' George sign the Kyoto agreement that he rejected. Let's have big business be more responsible for the pollution they spew into the air. It's just not enough for the Hollywood elite to drive Prius's.

The artic poles are melting, the sea is rising, the weather is becoming more turbulent, and the grass in my yard is completely dead from the Chicago drought last year.

OK, the last effect isn't that important. But the first three should scare the crap out of you.

Yes, we as individuals can do certain things to help out. Ditch the SUV's, buy energy efficient appliances, etc... but we really can't do much to the huge corporations who are causing the majority of the pollution.

The time for the government to act is now. Or, are we going to wait, as usual, until it's really too late?

Anyway to make a buck

.. this is why I'm cancelling my "lawn service".

Hmm.. A little early?

You think the layer of snow covering the ground may have been a little hint that it's too early for any sort of lawn care.

But hey, at over $40 per application, I'm sure they say, "Spray on!"

Where am I?

Looking back at my blog, I think I just broke my own personal record for not posting.

Let's just say if I was in a boxing ring, and in one corner it was me, and the other corner was my corporate job, I'd be down in round two by knockout. Yes, corporate job is kicking my ass.

Fortunately tomorrow the wife and I leave for Florida for a brief 4 day visit. Since we are visiting my 95 year old grandma, it won't necessarily be a "rockin" time, but just being away from work will be nice. And this crap-ass weather we've been having in Chicago. I mean, either snow and be 30 degrees, or just crank it up to at least the 60's with some sun. I don't think I can remember a winter where it's been in the 40's with nothing but clouds and rain for like 5 weeks. Bleh.

Oh, and I'm seriously considering buying my own domain and ditching this whole Blogger format. I'm tired of the regular blogs I visit being so much nicer than mine. We shall see....

.. don't you hate it when you're eating your apple, when all of a sudden you realize in your last bite you also ate the sticker that you forgot to peel off?
