I put down some mulch in some of my flower beds, but it had nothing to do with it being "Earth Day."

What kind of wood is that?

I raked my back yard and planted grass seed, Like Railhead it had nothing to do with earthday. It was really the first nice weekend in boston and I wasn't going to let it go to waste.

It was a beautiful weekend here also.
I've since purchased more wood to construct 4 more.
They're going to a charity auction for a nature center.

I did a tree.

actually, I avoided the internet, tv, modern modes of transportation - and spent the day in the park with my girl.

By 6pm I caved, and had to check my email.

we went to earth day, got to see a cool animal show, the kid got to play a band with recycled instruments, and then we went home and planted flowers. I also futilely planted some grass seed. We'll see if it actually takes this year.

I just flopped around hungover, and made split pea soup. The soup was green at least.

Jerk.




There's nothing I love more than spending several hours at a beach. Why are you in the Caribbean? You don't live there, do you?

Yes... I live in the Caribbean (although I'm a U.S. citizen) ... Trinidad & Tobago. Live in Trinidad but spend as much time as possible in Tobago. Here for a few weeks to enjoy the beaches. Plus the Plymouth Jazz Festival (the name is a misnomer as it really has nothing to do with jazz) is this weekend. Gonna be a great concert.

Took this yesterday:

It's still remains one my favorite models from the early 90s.

Of course, I find the ass end has a tendency to slide out on turn after you upgrade it to about 800 hp in Gran Tursimo.

I cut down about ten wrist sized trees, about a hundred finger sized trees and three mature ones.

How'd I do?
Being in debt and celebrating a lower deficit is like being on a diet and celebrating the fact you gained two pounds this week instead of five.

You could have done better if you just poured gas on them and lit them on fire

For Earth day, I did not run my AC at all. And it was 82, sunny and humid outside.

Go me.

I got up early on Saturday to help clean up the kinnickinnic river here in Milwaukee. I went last year, and pulled out trash/garbage/junk for most of the day, and in total, everybody pulled out over 12 tons of garbage.

This year, there was a bigger turnout. It's amazing how quickly a few hundred people can really improve things in such a short time. I worked from about 10-2pm, and the river went from horrible looking to pretty freaking awesome.

Here's a vid:

that's cool Rob. I had some friends do that for the Charles River here in MA this year. I fricking hate people who dump tires and shopping carts in rivers--my friend said she found like a hundred metal lunch trays. WTF?

It's usually homeless people that do that. The river would have been significantly cleaner had there not been a bunch of bums living nearby it.
