The Lion in the SenatePosted: August 26, 2009
Senator Kennedy has passed. I knew he was sick, but I thought he was doing better? I wonder how this will effect the health care debate. I know he was a huge pusher for Obama’s plan. And who will take over the Senate seat in Mass.? He was speaking with others politically involved in Massachusetts, but I do not know enough about politics to know what happens in the case of a death during term.
Before I heard the new of the death of an icon I created a new breakfast!
I had bought some WW english muffins yesterday and wanted to test them out. I however regret that I did not eat them in traditional fashion with jam…I wanted the nostalgia.
A few bright ideas to green your home from Real Simple to round out the day:
- Seal electrical outlets in the exterior walls of your house
- Install a high performance showerhead
- Replace incandescent bulbs with CFLs (I have an issue on this due to the mercury content)
- Wash clothes on cold water
- Keep your blinds closed in the summer and open in the winter
- Install a programmable thermostat
What do you do you improve your GREEN?
