About LIVE EARTH...and why it Rocked.
This weekend Live Earth opened up the Airwaves so people could Finally talk about Global Warming EnMasse and online and on TV. And yes I am grateful to Al Gore for this Event, it reminded me alot of the 1960's, with Meaningful Songs and Politcal Statements. ( I mean Alicia Keys and John Legend singing together is priceless, but to hear Marvin Gayes " What's Going On" in this Corrupt Wartorn Era was beyond Haunting.) We need MORE Music with a Messege, LOUDLY playing all around the Earth.
To lay on the floor with 3 fans, iced tea, and popsicles and a dog and cat and 6-6 and just Listen was Absolute Heaven .......( Even with all the annoying ads).
To walk the dog and hear it drifting from Many Many Open Windows and to have People call to me" Better get home, Dave Matthews is Next"....
To eavesdrop on Many Porch Debates about Buscho Errors on Global Warming was music to my ears....
To Hear the Music Come in through my windows all around, all of us listening to the same Messege, the Same Indictment on this Corrupt Dangerous Administration was music to my ears.
To hear an elderly neighbor Woman of upper 70's said to me as she came out on her porch, " Well, this is the Best thing I have seen in Years. Even though that Madonna thinks she is British now- she is still a bit Trampy isn't she. Well, I just hope that MrBush is sitting somewhere eating some crow and some humble pie, and maybe even choking on it....You know kinda like his Pretzel Moment. This is like the Whole World Calling him a FOOL."
Amen Miss Evie, amen. ( Henry also shared these sentiments and comments- so I must thank him too.).
THINGS WE TRY TO DO TO HELP THE EARTH at our home.... we "try"
(1) We have always tried to live close to a grocery store , so we could walk to the Market , and not use the car. We only use our car about once a week for errands and groceries....( I really really want a French Fry Car)
(2) and we have a cloth bag...mostly because I can't stand plastic bags.
(3) We recycle, which also means we rarely if ever buy NEW, we buy alot 2nd hand, or we use what others discard . ( Hey don't knock it- I got a beautiful Working Dyson Vacumn Cleaner that way...Sunday Night shopping I call it...)We fix and repair everything that matters.
(4) We don't fly a Private Jet....like ever...
Thanks Al Gore for Keeping the Dialogue Going .....about What Matters....
( I still wish you were OUR President....)
