"You Gonna Leave That There?"

And Other Leading Questions

Stucco, paint, and cement dumped on the Treehouse backyard

Maybe it didn’t matter where you dumped your trash in the ‘old days’. And maybe that’s why some people are still not asking themselves, “Do you think anybody will care if I just dump my leftover cement in their yard?”

When I was growing up in the 1950’s, we were ignorant of the damages we were causing with our really cool, leaded gas guzzling hot rods and station wagons. We weren't aware of the consequences of burning leaded fossil fuel, it was more like, could you drive to the beach and back on a dollars worth.

Heck, in the 1950’s the department of defense was setting off nuclear weapons in the Nevada desert that would occasionally dump radioactive fallout on Los Angeles. We didn’t know better back then.

But we know better now. At least we should. And we definitely need to be teaching ourselves, our kids, and our grandkids to live by the golden rule.

Someone didn’t teach the guys who have been spending 4 months building a tiny addition to the dining room, that is rude to dump your leftover construction materials on the job site. But, I think they probably would learn if they didn’t get paid until they cleaned up their mess.

New Favorite Milk

Breakfast is better than ever

I found some organic milk at Raley’s that reminds me of the kind the milkman delivered on our doorstep. The cream would rise to the top, and we would set the empty bottles out on the step to be picked up on the next delivery.

When I saw this milk in the refrigerated dairy case, I just had to check it out. It acts like, looks like, and tastes like the real thing.
