One More Reason to Clearcut

Friday, January 13th, 2006

A new source of global warming gas found?
According to a Reuters report, 10%-30% of all methane, a gas that tends to trap heat in the atmosphere, is produced by plants. Live plants produce more methane than dead ones. This is good news for countries who signed on to the Kyoto Protocal which requires […]

…ASHFALL ADVISORY IN EFFECT…

Wednesday, January 11th, 2006

…or so says the National Weather Service. Augustine Volcano near Kodiak has finally blown. It’s been rumbling for some time now.
The advisory goes on to say:
THE ASH CLOUD HAS BEEN DETECTED TO 28000 FT. THE CLOUD APPEARS TO HAVE LOW CONCENTRATIONS OF ASH.
AREAS TO BE AFFECTED IN THE NEXT TWO HOURS WILL BE […]

Two old men and Santa Claus

Saturday, December 17th, 2005

I discovered my first gray hair when I was 17 years old. Since then, I’ve grown an interesting little light gray/white streak at my left temple. It can only be seen when I have my hair swept back or tucked behind my ear and sometimes I dye it a cool color - but […]

Five Random Facts

Sunday, December 11th, 2005

Mrs. Swede tagged me to list five random facts about myself and since I have neglected to blog about any of the maddening headlines I’ve been thinking on recently, I’m going to take her challenge and hide behind it.
1. I can’t stand wearing make-up.
2. I actually enjoy […]

Lutheran Carnival XI

It’s up at Necessary Roughness!

Friday, November 18th, 2005

If Aardvark can have the Golden Aardy, I can have the Ellies. My awards are better, though. Certainly not because I’ve put more thought or creativity into them, but simply because they consist of beer.

The first Ellie goes to Mr. (Not-so) Terrible Swede and because it’s a pint of Winter Ale, he has […]

Saturday, November 12th, 2005

My Friday Night

Saturday, November 12th, 2005

Last night I went car shopping. I hate car shopping. I think I’ll eventually end up liking it, but first I’ll tell you why I hated it.
I went to a used car lot and looked at the two Subaru Foresters they had. I started up a green 2001 and heard the muffler […]

Elle needs…

Tuesday, November 8th, 2005

Because I was so highly entertained by Devona’s needs, I googled my own:
1. Elle needs to sway some opinions and what better way to do it than having the interns do a little dance number to George Clinton’s “Atomic Dog?”
2. Elle needs two Omni antennas (one out each end) for communication
3. Elle […]

First Snow!

Sunday, October 30th, 2005

I woke up this morning to the first snow of the season! There was a thick dusting or a thin layer, either one, coating the world outside. By afternoon, when this picture was taken, some of it had settled, some had melted and some had just gotten dirty.

A woman needs a career like a fish needs a bicycle.

Sunday, October 30th, 2005

Though taken out of context, the above title is my favorite Maureen Dowd quote. Yes, Maureen Dowd said that, but when she did, it looked a lot more like this:
If the new ethos is “a woman needs a career like a fish needs a bicycle,” it won’t be healthy.
Are young women rejecting the feminist […]
