Our world is very precious and I love many things about it. I love the outdoors and I feel that’s it our duty as a people to keep our world clean for future generations. It’s only right that we hand our kids a chance to enjoy nature as we found it. There are a few things that we can do to help this process along.
Keeping our world green is fast becoming a new way of life. One area that had concerned me was electronic recycling. Our business has many devices that are outdated or no longer work and need to be disposed of properly. It’s true that our former method of computer disposal was just dumping them in the trash. This is no longer the case. We have taken steps to ensure that we do our part to keep the world safe from the hazardous materials that can be found in electronic devices.
I think recycling computers is a good thing to do. There are companies out there who specialize in this field and they should be taken advantage of. We all have to do our part in making sure our waste does not become a problem for our children. I hope that these methods will become ingrained in our society.
I have contacted one of the hotels in Williamsburg Brooklyn in New York, and left my email and cell phone information that I am excited about possibly staying there next Spring. This up and coming spring I am determined to take a trip. As soon as I get my tax refund check deposited into my checking account I am out of here for one whole week.
Every year when I get my tax refund I end up doing all types of little things that add up real quick and next thing I know it’s all gone and I really don’t have a whole heck of a lot to show for it. I haven’t had a week off that I actually went some where out of this state and I have decided that this year I will. I have never been to New York, haven’t even driven through it to get to another state on the east coast. There is so much that this wonderful Yankee state has to offer, besides the well known N.Y.C. that we see and hear so much about.
There is a girl at work that has been to Brooklyn a few times and is talking about possibly going along with me when she gets her money back from Uncle Sam. It’s been a few years but she claims to know enough to be just above dangerous. We have both been doing a lot of research online at work. Sharing and comparing what we find out, having a really good time with the whole ordeal.
I really hope this pans out. It would be fun going with another person. I’m not much on going places on my own. We seem to get along all right at work for the past couple of years. Her cubicle is just two cubicles down from mine so we do spend a lot of time together. But you never really know someone until you live with them. I think spending a week together out of state at at hotel room qualifies for living together. For now I’m just trying to stay excited and positive about the whole thing.
I have heard of people doing amazing things in order to keep a job they like, but this one takes the cake. Michael Hanley lives in Wisconsin, but he works in Kansas. His General Motors job was moved and he felt it was necessary to go the extra mile to keep the job he had. He now drives 530 miles every weekend in order to visit his home and children.
It’s another 530 miles back to work and the trip can be heart wrenching. Leaving his wife and kids behind has got to be hard for anyone. Keeping his health insurance was a major factor in his decision to keep the job he had. It’s a shame that one man has to go so far to keep his family fed.
I saw a funny article today about some kids who found some money. I thought it was kind of funny so I will pass it along. Four kids in Germany found an envelope full of cash on their way to school. Upon their arrival at the schoolyard they started passing the money out to all of their friends. At that time, a teacher was notified and the police were called.
The police came to investigate and tried to collect the money that had been distributed. That turned out to be quite difficult and it took some time before the money was collected. The police are now investigating whose money it is and how it came to be there. I am sure that I would like to find a nice bundle of cash right now!
The California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation’s Office of Correctional Safety ran a sting this week involving hundreds of parole violators. The office sent out thousands of e-mails to families of parole violators stating that they were eligible for amnesty and cash or prizes. All they had to do was show up and collect. They were in for a surprise!
Upon showing up at the Oakland parole office, they were arrested. Authorities say they arrested 81 felons for parole violations or outstanding warrants. The move was part of a plan to reduce the amount of convicts on the most wanted list. It also removed many dangerous felons off the street. I am all for this type of thing and wish it hadn’t gotten into the news as it will make other felons aware of the scam!
