life : happy earth day!
music : sounds of nature
hello, hello! happy earth day and happy birthday to my brother! one thing we try to do to be environmentally-conscious is hold on to technology even though it might not be perfect. the transistor radio i use all the time has seen better days. it's been dropped many times. when the station changer came undone scott didn't realize there was a screw underneath the rechargeable batteries, so he literally tore it in half. it's held together with an elastic band, now. a new one would cost just $10, but this one still works. all of our parts aren't as sparkly and new as they once used to be, but we're still useful.
the volcano in iceland shows that nature will persevere and so will the little periwinkle creeping through the crack in a man-made wall. enjoy your day and celebrate our wonderful planet, every day!
ps now, having said all of that, i still like new toys, just not too many of them. as mentioned last week, i checked out the ipad and it is really gorgeous, but i'm old school and love a keyboard and a cover. the mini laptop designed by tord boontje with the environment in mind is also gorgeous and half the price. i love the customer review by snapshot - second one down.
