Yuck

no more warm southern nights “the frost is on the pumpkin” fall colors paint Picassos if you squint your eyes just right, the dirt of the Midwest casts a wholesome smell, autumn gasps it’s final breath before winter, the ice and snow and slush will surely follow yuck Advertisements

Water … Water everywhere but not a drop to drink.

Deep Water Horizon

I watched the movie for the first time. I’ve been avoided the pain of reality. We must remember that 11 employees were killed by corporate negligence and greed.  I remember why I have boycotted BP and Exxon all these years. (I once peed in a BP but I have not even purchase a cup of…
