plastic bags,local team wins

received an email from a relative about los angeles county
banning plastic bags in their county

think of the number of bags that is
think of the number of bags not blowing all over the
parking lots, freeways, school  yard, parks etc

think of the amount of plastic kept out of the landfills

think of this when you are out fishing in a lake or hunting
on a deer stand or walking in what should be a pristine
clean environment and there is that damn bag hung on
a branch flopping in the breeze or have your fishing
line or bait get tangled in a bag

we use reusable cloth bags when we get groceries
my wife she has them collected from everywhere
we keep them by the back door so as i leave to get
groceries  i want forget them
if i do i just ask the checker for paper please  then i
put the paper bags in my big compost pile and let
my backyard chickens work them over     they are
easily shredded in a few days

if your local government doesnt ban plastic bags
which most do not  then you can just not use them
and bring your cloth bags with you

pollution like with plastic bags, air pollution, smog,
groundwater pollution, plastic bottles  can make an area
almost inhabitable     even the chinese have recognized
this and have began some measures to fight pollution

those of you who live where i grew up talk to your grandparents
or read about the pollution that occurred from producing
oil in that area back in the 1920s-1950s

can remember my dad talking about the oil pollution and
destruction of the ouachita river fishing when he was
a child      it took years for the river to recover

now think about 50 years from now when your children
and your grandchildren are ready to retire and what
will the environment be like if we dont change things

one of the local teams where i live is in the state playoffs
for football    
you know here football is king
the girls teams tend to be ignored even though the
quality of athletes are as equal to the football team
they just dont get the coverage    guess thats another blog

the local team won and will now advance further

there goes their families thanksgiving and christmas plans

do think though this team has everything that is needed to
go all the way to the final game    they have "it"
even their band has "it"     they are one of the best
bands in this area       the band helps the atmosphere
a lot and can help the football team if they play loud
music at the right time of the game as this band did
at the end of a recent game which interfered with the
other teams calling audibles and calling signals

go local team go
