I tried posting this yesterday but it didn't go thru and after the temp got to 104 here yesterday I just didn't feel like trying again. It is hot here but thankfully not the humid type of hot I grew up with so it is at least partially bearable.
We had a guy come out to look at putting a heat pump in but it will be two weeks. Heat pumps are suppossed to be an energy saving device for heating and cooling used both in summer and winter . On the coast here where you usually have to wear a jacket it was a 100 in Cannon Beach and 99 in Manzanita.Here is to hoping it cools off soon.
I guess I have decided to continue the blog . I guess we all go thru times where we just don't know . Thanks for the encouragement from Paula ,Shelbyand Helen.
The environment and global warming has been on my mind lately.Please go check out Ali Edwards blog and the links there. It makes me proud to be Oregonian due to the legislation that comes out of this state in response to the environmental crisis we are in. I am proud of our Governor here also who proposed and participitaed in the food stamp challenge. I intend to make green one of my deciding points in the next presidental election and vote the party of my grandparents the elephant.Just my opinon nothing more nothing less. I hope that when our vehicle finally dies we can get a hybrid or biodiesel. It also makes me proud that here most every home you see in the towns in oregon when the garbage it put out there will be a garbage container of equal size for the recycyling and most everyone recycles their cans. This is something I never saw in the south when I lived there.In Ali's list of blogs check out the Eat Local link. This is something we are tying to do at our home.
Since this is an I love Oregon post please go to Posie Gets Cozy and read her blog about Astoria which is one of my most favorite cities in Oregon also.
This weekend here in my little town is the Turkey Rama festival. They are having a streetdance which makes me feel at home because growing up in the south on the 4th of July where I used to live they would have a street dance with a band and close off main street. It brings back fond memories for me.
