Plant a tree and save the planet.

I remember in the 80s back in boy scouts, we planted trees in some fields and even went door to door to give out some saplings. If I remember correctly, we would plant them in peoples yards, a long way back. I thought somewhere it said that the smallest of trees are great CO2 absorbers. One of the gases blamed for global warming.

Global warming has been a neutral issue with me, personally. I do believe that our activity on earth is probably contributing to it, but I also believe that we are only accelerating a process that will eventually happen anyways. I do believe that Canada has done a great job in many areas of combating global warming, with the installation of wind farms across the country and such. Many countries have reduced their CO2 footprint, but where developing countries such as China where coal fired plants are popping up everywhere, it is a hard battle line to take. There must be a way to get developing countries off of CO2 increasing emissions. I know here in New Brunswick, many of its oil fired plants have already been retired. Do I believe we can reduce CO2 completely. Not for many years, no. It is just that it is a most reliable source of energy, and it is needed in a % quantity to stabilize the grid. Too much wind power will lead to lights on lights off as the wind fluctuates. You need stability in the mix. We just need to minimize CO2 emissions at a tolerable level.

But, a great way to deal with it is to plant trees, and protect forests. Reforest where forests have been cut for firewood, paper, or furniture. I would like to see another tree planting program in force by governments throughout the world. Get out the high school kids to plant trees. They cool the planet, and remove CO2!

No news on the book front.. Till next time...

My Dog has ate a Ferrero Rocher.

I had only went into a store to buy a few Ferrero Rocher packages of chocolates... Then, I went into the next store, not realizing that I left the small, 3 chocolates per package, delicious Rochers in my middle vehicle organizer. On the way back, I did not even notice.

I had got out of my vehicle, and only when I went to search for something on that side, it all came together. The package was torn, with only one individually wrapped Ferro Rocher out of its packaging. She had selected one, and even tore the golden foil paper from the once existing Rocher Chocolate.

I looked over at my Dog. This was a little too much for me to handle. I yelled "Pushkin! You ate one of my Ferrero Rocher!"  Is she the only dog in the world that probably ate a Ferrero Rocher.

Good point in standing, she actually thought the process through. She did not destroy the three chocolates in the package, all in one bite. She used her incisors, exactly as a surgeon would, to take apart the package from t…

Supermarket Guy 5 doing very well.

Have approximately 15 % written on Part 5 so far. It is going really well, but the first few chapters maybe more drama and less action. Relationships come into play as the main characters father and mother first meet. A meeting of the eccentrics, one extreme male dominate character with a woman who takes liberty to the maximum extreme, looking back to the 70's, where we remember the 8 track tape and black and white tv. When smoking was cool. A decade where the men held the dominance in affairs and in the household, and the women usually held the fort at the home. Things have changed for the better through the late 80s and 90s, as a womans place in the world has become much more equal these days, becoming bread winners and with the men sharing allot of the household chores these days in many families. Perhaps Margaret Thatcher paved the way for many women all over the world. Now even governments make sure there is a good number of women in their cabinet in order to govern, and man…
