DID OUR GENERATION BLOW the "GREEN" THING?

This is a WHINE list you do not have to uncork.

Simply take your WHINING (on any topic) and add it to the
COMMENTS below.



 September 19th 2012
It is about time I pulled the cork on another WHINE session.

 

It has been a while mates.

 

However. . .

What you read below is what seniors get really ticked off about.
I just had to add it to my collection of WHINES and
drink to P.J. Reynhout for sending this my way.
                                             https://www.facebook.com/pj.reynhout




 Checking out at the store, the young cashier suggested to the older woman, that she should bring her own grocery bags because plastic bags weren't good for the environment.

The woman apologized 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."


She was right -- our generation didn't have the green thing in its day.

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 truely 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 schoolbooks. 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 throwaway 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 blades 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. 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 smartass young person.
                               We don't like being old in the first place, so it doesn't take much to piss us off.

EARTH - Its Future is NOW!


This is a WHINE list you do not have to uncork.

Simply take your WHINING (on any topic) and add it to the
COMMENTS below.



 Feb 20th 2012
It is about time I pulled the cork on another WHINE session.

This time I want to whine about those who think global warming
is a fairy tale, thought up by people with political axes
to grind and agendas to cultivate.  

 
 
I am as savvy as the next writer.  I read the newspapers, listen to the BBC, NPR and OPB. I watch CNN, TV science programs, and anything to do with global warming - both for and against!  I read Time Magazine weekly.  What is it about the thorough scientific research and knowledge that has gone into the process of learning about global warming, and its effects, that is hard for some folks to grasp.   Good lord, all these egg heads break it down into sound bites that people like you and me can easily understand.
.
WHAT IS THEIR PROBLEM?
DON'T THEY TRUST SCIENCE?
DO THEY REALLY THINK THESE  GUYS ARE PAID TO LIE?

.
DO THEY HAVE AN ALTERNATIVE REASON FOR GLACIERS
AND THE POLES TURNING INTO  GIANT GLASSES
OF ICE WATER, ASAP?

 When science communities world wide agree that our world is heating up at a rate never before experienced, I tend to believe them.  They come bearing facts, figures, and extrapolations that make sense. So I want to help do whatever is necessary, RIGHT NOW, to make sure my grand- kids can still see the glory of glaciers, the polar bear in it's icy and pristine habitat, and the major tropical forests, earth's lungs, pumping out pure oxygen - without too lethal a dose of carbon dioxide to absorb in return.  I want our oceans to be there in all their glory, not fished out, and losing saline content faster than you can say beached whale!



If we don't believe the FUTURE IS NOW,
then there will be NO FUTURE planet
for our great grand-kids to inherit.
 


This is more than a WHINE mates. . .

THOSE WHO REFUSE TO BELIEVE IN GLOBAL WARMING ARE
FRITTERING AWAY OUR  ECOLOGICAL HERITAGE.  
THEY ARE TAMPERING WITH THE
RESOURCES
OF FUTURE
GENERATIONS. . .







OF OUR FAMILIES!



We must find ways to  conserve energy,  discover alternative fuels and power,  be ecologically  wise and pro-active.   It is time to stop taking this wonderful world and all its bounty for granted.  PLANT TREES, not cut them down.  Preserve what is unique and vital to our future.




WE ARE SMART - 
We went to the moon. We rocketed into outer space and sent back pictures.  
We invented fire, the wheel and the Internet.


Let's save out planet before it is too late.



Please. . .

The AGE PACKAGE - Who Can I Blame?


This is a WHINE list you do not have to uncork.

Simply take your WHINING (on any topic) and add it to the
COMMENTS below.



Feb 7th 2012

My current Whine is:

I have a bone to pick with whoever
invented getting old.

How dare they mess around with our perfectly good bodies and brains in this way.  Who do they think they are, Congress?  When I was a kid, no one warned me that aches, pains, and wrinkles would be payment for hanging around for a bunch of decades.  

 When the doctor told Mum to look out for "Arthur," I thought she was having another baby.  Who knew Arthur was short for arthritis?   I had no clue.  And then there was Grandma.   I thought all grandmas came packaged that way: white haired, bent over, and wrinkly - like a prune.


I was never going to get old and wrinkly - no way, no how.  Guess I was "green" before it ever came fashionable.  I came packaged with strong legs and arms, smooth healthy skin, and enough energy to light up a small town - I was invincible: until suddenly I began to notice things.

Mum had a few gray hairs - they were not in her original package. And Dad got what the doc said was an ulcer.  How could this happen?  He didn't come with an ulcer.  And then I started to develop in ways that were definitely NOT part of my original package.

Taller, more rounded, and my always happy mood morphed into, "Pull the parent chain as often as I can get away with it," kinda thing.   My original package had disappeared.  Vanished! Vamoosed!  I was left holding a very different package - one that had boobs, and a butt boys whistled at. YIKES!!


Fortunately for my sanity, this package stayed with me for a number of years.  I grew complacent.  Then, one day I looked in the mirror and I saw a white hair, followed by a wrinkle, followed by my scales yelling,  "Hey chubby, go easy on the cookies and cake!"

My package had reached a peak, and it was now all downhill.  SOB! My mum once told me this gem of wisdom. "If you feel terrific when you get up in the morning, never look in the mirror.  If you do, the feeling will dribble away fast, like ice cream on a hot day."  Boy, was Mum smart.

Talk about a slow learner.  It's taken me a lifetime to learn that the package we come in does not stay the same.  Some !@#$ person decreed our package must change.  This slow dawning information has sorely strained my sense of humor.  Anyone who thinks aches, wrinkles, and hip replacements are a big giggle, needs a good swift kick.



Yet, after mulling this post over for some time, I have come to a surprising conclusion about me and my ever changing package - it sure as !@#$ beats the alternative!!  


How is YOUR package holding up?
The COMMENTS section below

Let's hear it from the Social Security Generation.
YEA!
