Inconsistent Blogging
5 September 2009, 9:52 am

I’m sorry if I don’t blog every day and I’m sometimes inconsistent. I lose my DSL service sometimes and my 86 year old mother has cancer and I am her only caregiver. Sometimes things are good and sometimes things are not. I’m getting ready to run to U of M hospital right now&...

Ban on Plastic Bags in Ann Arbor?
22 September 2009, 5:35 pm

Ann Arbor may be close to banning plastic bags according to wxyznews.com and boy is it bringing a lot of rotten comments. I don’t get it. Plastic bags are a matter of convenience not a necessity and besides I blogged about plastics made from food by products or quick biodegradable material bef...

The climate models may need to be adjusted to accommodate natural leaks of all types of gases including CO2 happening all over the earth. An article o...
