How about a Garage Sale next weekend?

If anyone has walked by my house today they would have seen the Garage sale.

Things dont always turn out the way you want when family intervenes….

We plan to continue on Sunday, noon and on, tonnes of good stuff and tonnes of free stuff.

Feel free to drop off donations too.


2007 Apr 24: Nuclear plan transmission line?

I’ve just received a flyer from the oranges. (New nickname for NDP — note oranges are not local, therefore unsustainable.)

Next Tuesday there will be a public meeting regarding the proposed transmission line into the Portlands. (Note again, who did NOT oppose the Portlands, simply advocated a lower capacity? Oranges.)

What shocked me though, was not the shameless self-promition. (I think we’re all used to that by now). But rather the ending sentence:

There are better sustainable options to building more nuclear and high voltage transmittion lines.

Though this could be confusing just to me, since I am ESL, it sounds like they are saying there is a sustainable way to get nuclear? Perhaps it is just bad wording.

I definitely plan to attend the discussion to get clear on the issue. I hope it will be more than just a case of NIMBYism in order to “green” themselves.
