  1. Global Warming – Hmmmm maybe notDid you know that NASA reported today that the amount of ice in the Antartica is growing. (Varney – Fox news)

The new Antarctic sea ice record reflects the diversity and complexity of Earth’s environments, said NASA researchers. Claire Parkinson, a senior scientist at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, has referred to changes in sea ice coverage as a microcosm of global climate change. Just as the temperatures in some regions of the planet are colder than average, even in our warming world, Antarctic sea ice has been increasing and bucking the overall trend of ice loss.

“The planet as a whole is doing what was expected in terms of warming. Sea ice as a whole is decreasing as expected, but just like with global warming, not every location with sea ice will have a downward trend in ice extent,” Parkinson said.

Saving Tip For Today – 08/06/2013

content_Make_Your_Own_Laundry_Detergent

Not Just For DishesUse about a teaspoon of liquid dish soap in your top-loading washing machine to clean your clothes. Its cheaper with fewer chemicals.

Make your ownI am A Google fan big time – go to Google to get the recipes for all detergent. The most common ingredients are usually Borax and Fels-naptha soap. A batch will cost you pennies in the dollar and worth the effort.

Pot scrubbersNow I am sure most of you reading this will probably think “I don’t think so”. But if you are in a situation that you are struggling financially and every dollar counts, (watching Varney on Fox tells me that there are hundreds of thousands in this position) this is a great idea. Dont go buying the steel wool pads or any pot scrubbers just save the plastic mesh bags you get with your fruit and veg’s. Remove the labels and staples and tie in a knot, does a great job.

Poem Friday – 09/21/2012 – It’s Your Future They Are Talking About!

It’s Your Future They Are Talking About!
Author: Lesley Voth

We are right now in the silly season,
Listen, observe, and vote for the right reason.

I am aiming this poem at the young, who can vote,
I am not trying to sway one way or promote.

Think outside of the box; make choices from the head,
Be sure; be comfortable, for the next 4 years, to lie in that bed.

Politicians are traveling all over the place,
Expounding their theories trying to win the Presidential race.

Would you have a lawyer, government employee, or celebrity run your life?
Or would you have a businessman, guide, your children, yourself, and your wife?

Listen to those who live the economy, love America, and add no baloney,
Listen to Varney, Fox News, in the morning, enjoy, he and his guests are no phony.

But it’s your choice as to whom you believe, and where you get your information,
Get over it; ignore the useless slights and digs by each politician’s accusation.

It appears to be normal, but not intelligent, not productive,
It’s media hype, it’s vindictive, it’s nasty, and destructive.

What are the freedoms that they offer you?
Will you be so regulated and taxed, more than you ever knew?

Does he surround himself with a competent crew?
Are his promises shallow or is he of substance, do you believe him to be true?

If you don’t vote then you should never complain,
because others will make your choices, again and again.

You will surely lose the freedoms you are now enjoying,
Your countries entrepreneurial spirit they will be destroying.

You might say… you are an Australian why do you care?
Well, when I am in the America that I love, My Harley and I, your roads we share.

And, because I am old enough to remember America, its pride, and its glory,
its wealth, its strength, its confidence, what a great story.

Nothing is free in this life you will find.
It’s the choice to work, be rewarded, be passionate, play and unwind.

Go vote, be heard, be sure, and don’t doubt,
It’s your future they are talking about.
