More evidence of why German Shepherds rule

So cool!

Reduce, reuse, recycle

I have to say, when I have to buy a plastic bottle of some kind I try to reuse it as many times as possible... and/or recycle it. I never buy the multi-pack of single serve water or soda... it's such a waste! I have my own reusable water bottle, and so should everyone! This beach in Hawaii is literally turning into plastic from all of the plastic trash that floats to it. The sand there is mostly bits of plastic. Ew! So bad... check it out here on BBC News

Of course I had to blog this

So I've been a little busy...

Feeling bad about not blogging for such a long time! It may have something to do with the fact that I drove over 3,000 miles in the past week. I've been through New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Illinois, Iowa, Nebraska, Wyoming, Utah, Nevada, California, and now I'm in Seattle, Washington. Whew. Pictures should be coming soon!

I think the craziest sight was in Iowa. Ashley and I had no idea that there were tornado warnings in Iowa when we got there. We had driven for a while and decided to finally stop outside of Iowa City after much debate on whether we should have kept going. When we got going the next day, we drove about twenty minutes away from Iowa City and saw about four 18 wheelers and two RV's completely flipped on their sides on the side of the highway. We even recognized passing a few of them on our way through Iowa the night before. We eventually found out that the tornadoes had created 100 mph wind gusts that were blowing trucks and RV's off the road. Thankfully we stopped when we did or it could have been pretty hazardous for us!

Love it

The New York Times had a great article by Op-Ed columnist Bob Herbert the other day about the complete lack of class in the GOP and I love it! You should check it out here!!!

"For decades the G.O.P. has been the party of fear, ignorance and divisiveness. All you have to do is look around to see what it has done to the country. The greatest economic inequality since the Gilded Age was followed by a near-total collapse of the overall economy. As a country, we have a monumental mess on our hands and still the Republicans have nothing to offer in the way of a remedy except more tax cuts for the rich. This is the party of trickle down and weapons of mass destruction, the party of birthers and death-panel lunatics. This is the party that genuflects at the altar of right-wing talk radio, with its insane, nauseating, nonstop commitment to hatred and bigotry."
