pearl harbor day, now its christmas, our green christmas tree

today is pearl harbor day
this was my parents 9-11
the us was not in wwII until the japanese did this
surprise attack on pearl harbor
over 2300 american military personal were killed
it destroyed a large portion of the american battleship

as per roosevelt  it was a day that will live in infamy

go to www.nps.gov for more information

dont feel like its christmas until after thanksgiving is over
seems we should be celebrating thanksgiving during
then when december is here thats when we should
begin to celebrate christmas
hearing christmas music before thanksgiving just
aint right
now is the time for the christmas spirit to start
christmas cards are coming in
looking through gift catalogues and on websites for
gift ideas
decorating the house and putting up christmas lights
listening to the christmas music

dont go quite as extensive as we use to do but do
keep the christmas spirit, music, decorations,the tree
and gifts going during the season

do have a happy holiday

we try to do as much as we can to stay green
we heat our house with a wood burning stove, we have
solar panels for some of our electricity, we have a
rainwater collection system for our water system, we recycle
our plastic, glass, newspapers, leaves, etc,  our cars all get
40 mpg, and my wife she and i commute together

feel that future generations will appreciate all this green
stuff every one is doing now

we now have a green christmas tree
why is it green
we put on our boots and walked around our pasture
looking at small cedar trees to dig up and put in a large
pot for our christmas tree
no pollution except for some methane produced when
was walking

after christmas day this tree will be transplanted to a site
where am planting a visual block along our property line

the ultimate green christmas tree

one of my nieces bought a camera but cant figure how
how to work it because the directions are not in english
think this may say a lot about our status in the world
