Recycling Foam Cups.
Something I found even better than getting free food on Cow Appreciation Day at Chick-fil-A was seeing that they have now begun recycling their foam cups in some locations. The manager said they should have them in all locations by 2015 and they will be also expanding the program to the plastic containers too. The cups and containers will be recycled into name tags, pens, and other items. With the amount waste #fastfood produces every year, it’s good to see a company doing something to reduce & reuse. I hope more companies follow suit… I’m looking at you Whataburger and McDonald’s.

Had gone out to see the super moon last night, but couldn’t see much of anything. There was a nice haze cover the sky. By the time the moon cleared the haze, it was not so super any more. Luckily, I have two more times to check this event later on this summer, August 10th, and September 9th.
Buy Me Out
9 months after the 2013 Colorado Floods, areas along US 34 still shows signs of the damage. Here, remnants of a house crushed in the flood rests agains mud mounds created from those raging waters.
The owner of the the devastated home asks for someone to “Buy me Out” and to “Don’t Tread on Me… Without a buyout.” Finally, “If NOT 4 me, THEN Who?”
Grandpa’s Pond at the Mineola Nature Preserve on the Sabine River is lush in green after a rain in late June. I’ve been to the Mineola Nature Preserved several times now and I really appreciate how on each visit it is different. This is the first time I’ve been there when everything is green. Of course, the rain helped that, but I’m not complaining as it gave to some new photo oppertunities.
At some point I’m going to actually make it all the way down the trail to the Sabine River and/or see the alligator.
An interesting way to get your message out there. I could almost imaging the conversation…
"Hey, I know how we’ll do it."
"We’ll take an old leather recliner and put by the side of the road near some construciton."
"And then, we’ll put a wood sign on it that you can’t see from the road."
Maybe it was brilliant as I made a special trip to see it closer and I’m now posting about it. Anyways, Jeff Nelson, King of Rock and Roll, good luck to you and Mr. Bummblebeesting.
