Since I've got you here...

While I have got you here reading the travails of our family life, I thought I would take a moment to get up on my soapbox about something...



Did you know it only costs ONE DOLLAR a week to recycle here in good old Austin? ONE DOLLAR and they will give you a bin and come to pick up your stuff once a week. If you have rented a red box movie, bought something at the dollar store, or off the dollar menu at McD's you instead could have helped saved the planet. It's the least you could do. I mean you will save $1 just in the garbage bags that you normally would use to throw away all of your milk cartons, cans, etc.

I would like to strongly encourage you to look in to how much this service costs in your city. If a dollar is too much for you call me, I will pay for you. Or you can bring your recyclables to my house on Tuesday mornings if you live in the greater Austin area.

I will now take my bow and step off of my soapbox, hoping that I have convinced someone to recycle. Thank you.
