      Re: "Thought For the Day"

      “The Green Thing” --- you will love it!
      Checking out at the store, the young cashier suggested to the much older lady that she should bring her own grocery bags, because plastic bags are not good for the environment.

      The woman apologized to the young girl and explained, "We didn't have this 'green thing' back in my earlier days."
      The young clerk responded, "That's our problem today. Your generation did not care enough to save our environment for future generations."

      The older lady said that she was right -- our generation didn't have the "green thing" in its day. The older lady went on to explain:
      Back then, we returned milk bottles, soda bottles and beer bottles to the store. The store sent them back to the plant to be washed and sterilized and refilled, so it could use the same bottles over and over. So they really were recycled.
      But we didn't have the "green thing" back in our day.

      Grocery stores bagged our groceries in brown paper bags that we reused for numerous things. Most memorable besides household garbage bags was the use of brown paper bags as book covers for our school books. This was to ensure that public property (the books provided for our use by the school) was not defaced by our scribblings. Then we were able to personalize our books on the brown paper bags.
      But, too bad we didn't do the "green thing" back then.

      We walked up stairs because we didn't have an escalator in every store and office building. We walked to the grocery store and didn't climb into a 300-horsepower machine every time we had to go two blocks.
      But she was right. We didn't have the "green thing" in our day.

      Back then we washed the baby's diapers because we didn't have the throw away kind. We dried clothes on a line, not in an energy-gobbling machine burning up 220 volts. Wind and solar power really did dry our clothes back in our early days. Kids got hand-me-down clothes from their brothers or sisters, not always brand-new clothing.
      But that young lady is right; we didn't have the "green thing" back in our day.

      Back then we had one TV, or radio, in the house -- not a TV in every room. And the TV had a small screen the size of a handkerchief (remember them?), not a screen the size of the state of Montana. In the kitchen we blended and stirred by hand because we didn't have electric machines to do everything for us. When we packaged a fragile item to send in the mail, we used wadded up old newspapers to cushion it, not Styrofoam or plastic bubble wrap. Back then, we didn't fire up an engine and burn gasoline just to cut the lawn. We used a push mower that ran on human power. We exercised by working so we didn't need to go to a health club to run on treadmills that operate on electricity.
      But she's right; we didn't have the "green thing" back then.

      We drank from a fountain when we were thirsty instead of using a cup or a plastic bottle every time we had a drink of water. We refilled writing pens with ink instead of buying a new pen, and we replaced the razor blade in a razor instead of throwing away the whole razor just because the blade got dull.
      But we didn't have the "green thing" back then.

      Back then, people took the streetcar or a bus and kids rode their bikes to school or walked instead of turning their moms into a 24-hour taxi service in the family's $45,000 SUV or van, which cost what a whole house did before the"green thing". We had one electrical outlet in a room, not an entire bank of sockets to power a dozen appliances. And we didn't need a computerized gadget to receive a signal beamed from satellites 23,000 miles out in space in order to find the nearest burger joint.

      But isn't it sad the current generation laments how wasteful we old folks were just because we didn't have the "green thing" back then?

      Please forward this on to another selfish old person who needs a lesson in conservation from a smart aleck young person.

      We don't like being old in the first place, so it doesn't take much to tick us off... Especially from a tattooed, multiple pierced smart aleck who can't make change without the cash register telling them how much.

      I love this! It's going to be my motto of the week.

      "We dried clothes on a line, not in an energy-gobbling machine burning up 220 volts."
      This brought back a long-forgotten memory of hanging sheets on the line to dry.
      I can see myself as a 10-year-old, struggling
      mightily to hang the billowing sheets in the wind. Every time I got one end pinned down, then the other end would come undone.

      The bit about 'hanging sheets on the line' hit home with me too. I remember when I had my first baby, and we had the old 'wringer-washer'. After the wash was done, we had to put the items (diapers in this case) through the 'wringer' into the sanitary tub filled with clear 'rinse water'. Then, after the rinse was done, we moved the 'wringer' over the two tubs and ran the diapers again through the ringer to the empty tub, where they were then taken outside to hang on the clotheslines.
      Nothing like clean, fresh, air-dried diapers ...

      This is fantastic! It really hits where it hurts the most on the last couple generations. I ended up doing a copy paste of it to save in my collection of wisdom.

      Just one thing to add: As kids we played jacks, jump rope, Lincoln Logs and boxed of Leggos that had no instructions w/only 3 or 4 types of bricks and other such games that required no electricity but needed imagination & physical skill instead of disposable electric games or pre-designed Lego kits with instructions how to build something specific and all kinds of custom bricks that took all the work out of it.

      Re: "Thought For the Day"

      Sad to say, I'm one of those selfish old people that grew up uncaring and not knowing about the "green thing".

      I used to have a wagon that I'd walk along the road picking up beer bottles where people tossed them out to take in to recycle. Back then too, we only had 1 car in the household. Even after us kids got old enough to drive, we weren't allowed to use it. That was for dad to go to work and on weekends take mom to town for shopping. If we wanted a car, we had to go to work.

      While snow storms are slamming the Northeast today,
      and even the West Coast is being hit hard with storms,
      Sending Greetings from Robert Frost. ---

      “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening”

      Whose woods these are I think I know.
      His house is in the village though;
      He will not see me stopping here
      To watch his woods fill up with snow.

      My little horse must think it queer
      To stop without a farmhouse near
      Between the woods and frozen lake
      The darkest evening of the year.

      He gives his harness bells a shake
      To ask if there is some mistake.
      The only other sound’s the sweep
      Of easy wind and downy flake.

      The woods are lovely, dark and deep,
      But I have promises to keep,
      And miles to go before I sleep,
      And miles to go before I sleep.

      Re: "Thought For the Day"

      It's the first day of March, coming in like a lion.

      "March"
      Forward, March
      And welcome spring,
      When bunnies bounce
      And birds all sing!
      When March winds blow
      The winter away,
      They get the world
      Ready for April and May.

      Today is also "National Peanut Butter Lover's Day".
      Here is a FAQ. "Question: Do elephants like peanut butter?"
      Answer: Elephants don’t really eat peanuts despite what caricatures you’ve seen or stories you’ve heard. So, they wouldn’t eat peanut butter either.

      Do you know why the Count is called the Count?
      Because he really loves to count.
      Sometimes he sits and counts all day, but sometimes he gets carried away.

      "33 Flavors Day!"

      On March 3rd every year, 33 Flavors Day is celebrated. Though the reason for this particular date is not known, many believe that It comes from Bresler’s 33 Flavors ice cream shop, which was an American ice cream chain founded in 1927.

      Celebrate this day by going all out and indulge in a well-deserved treat, or by taking your friends and family along to the nearest ice cream shop. The timing of the holiday makes it perfect for eating ice cream.

      What are the strangest flavors?
      Some strange flavors of ice cream include avocado, crocodile egg, octopus, caramelized brown bread, garlic, and licorice.

      What are some creative flavors that have been invented?
      Some delicious ice cream creative flavors that have been invented are raspberry, coconut, caramel, butter pecan, shrimp, bacon, and pizza ice cream. There is also goat cheese beet swirl and sweet potato ice cream.

      “Eskimo pie” is the world's first chocolate-covered ice cream.

      Vanilla is the most loved ice cream flavor.

      My favorite is still Chocolate! What is your favorite?
