Happy Earth Day

The only reason I know it's Earth Day is because we heard on the radio yesterday that Ralph's supermarket is giving away free reusable shopping bags today. We wanted to get some but can't find a Ralph's around here so my husband went to Vons and purchased three. Vons ain't distributing them for free. Oh well. They're green and kind of pretty so I like them. We have a few from Wal-Mart, but they're black and say 'Wal-Mart' on them. Not very pretty.

Hopefully that nut, Ted Turner is wrong. He says global warming will make all of us cannibals in thirty years. Talk about a case of the crazies. He's buying up Nebraska and the ranchers are none too happy about that. He owns a lot of land next the lake in New Mexico where we live in winter, so maybe he's getting ready. My dance teacher works for him, does maintenance around his place, and she met ol' Jane one time.

A Wal-Mart is going up in New Mexico. We have acquaintances at the newspaper and in business and learned that of 100 job applicants (for the new Wal-Mart) six, count 'em, six, qualified for interview. The other 94 didn't pass the drug screening. Meth. Huge problem there. Huge problem. Everywhere.
