Ya know what i love the most about having kids?
GETTING REALLY SICK FOR THE THIRD TIME IN JUST UNDER WEEKS!!!!!!
Really getting tired of this. It seems like our house has become some sort of germ pinball game where the stuff just mutates and then heads back to the next person. Some friends suggested it was the trash, but it appears that our house is not alone in this. Just seems like a bad season.
Anyhoo, catching up tonight and hopefully tomorrow night I'll be able to respond to some comments, but I'm working so it depends on what time we finish.
On that note, as the film industry slowly gets back to a start, you'll begin to see some other stuff listed that hasn't before. Chief among them are sides (a shrunk down version of the days script pages so that you can easily glance at them) and call sheets (a double sided list of the next days work with scenes, cast, personnel, start times, etc). It's beyond me why in this day and age call sheets can't be emailed. I have a similar problem with sides, but as a camera operator they are necessary at times when you need to follow dialogue. That said, most of the crew do not need them, nor do they use them, yet many are printed up each day. Big waste.

So I was thinking about things the other day and something occurred to me. Why is it against the law for some big corporation to dump raw sewage into a river but it's totally ok for them to sell us products in packaging that is poisoning our oceans, our land, and in many instances (as a result) our bodies and minds? I mean I get the whole concept that we are buying this stuff but in many cases, we have no choice. There are many necessities that, living in cities, we have no other choices but to buy. So why is it our responsibility to make sure that these things are dealt with correctly as opposed to the corporations taking responsibility for their actions on the first place and offering us packaging that is biodegradable/compostable?
Is it insane to think that a law should be passed that says within 10 years it will be illegal to sell packaging that is non compostable? Why should we the consumers have to figure out the answers when the corporations that are out there are making bank by selling us packaging that we don't want, that is a pain in the rear to open, and that is turning the planet into a toxic ball?
Am I nuts?
Anyone with me?
(And JB, don't think I don't think I'm not going to hear from you on this).
Week 10 and still doing ok. No smell and as you may notice, the worm bin has graduated outside (more on that below)
I know, i keep on promising to clean up but there just isn't enough time!
OK, so the worm bin has made it outside now that it has officially stopped raining here in SoCal. I had them in the basement for that reason but decided that temp and airflow (breezes really) were better outside. The basement tends to keep a little cool and they like a little heat now and again. Also, it was getting a tad stinky from time to time so i was having to stir it up a bit to get air moving. Not a problem, but a pain. Hopefully outside, the breezes will keep enough air moving that this won't be a problem. And hopefully there won't be animal problems either. We'll see. I did take the opportunity to clean it a bit though and got a ton of worm tea from the bottom. Probbaly a quart. This is the water that leaches through the castings and is super nutrient rich. Put it on the lemon tree and we'll see how it does.
