Welcome to the blog dedicated to exposing my weird sense of humor for your enjoyment with a hint of environmental friendliness. When I'm not writing about crazy happenings in my day to day life, I'm making people aware of the environment and how they can do their part to keep it clean. I'm not the Go Green Nazi & I'm not saying you have to be Davie Crockett w/ your coonskin cap or force your family to live like the Swiss Family Robensons- just a simple plant on your desk at work or sitting out on your back patio is fine. If I can get just one person to even think & be more aware of the environment around them, I know I've played my part in helping out, no matter how small it may seem.

Only in America

Ok, here are some random thoughts about American society I received in an email today and the weird shit that only happens here...it really gets you thinking!

Only in America....
... do drugstores make the sick walk all the way to the back of the store to get their prescriptions, while healthy people can buy cigarettes at the front.
... do people order double cheeseburgers, large fries, an d a diet coke.
... do banks leave both doors open and then chain the pens to the counters.
... do we buy hot dogs in packages of ten and buns in packages of eight. (This is extremely frustrating to me!!)
... do they have drive-up ATM machines with Braille lettering.(This really makes you wonder about who the DMV actually lets take their driving test)

Now, ever wonder why:
...Why the sun lightens our hair, but darkens our skin?
... Why women can't put on mascara with their mouth closed?
... Why is "abbreviated" such a long word?
... Why is lemon juice made with artificial flavor, and dishwashing liquid made with real lemons?
... Why do they sterilize the needle for lethal injections?
... You know that indestructible black box that is used on airplanes? Why don't they make the whole plane out of that stuff?
... Why don't sheep shrink when it rains?
