Unintended Consequences

Beer: A lovely Cherry Wheat that should be ready to drink by June 1. I expect it will be like drinking a cherry pie (but not too sweet).

Bicycle: Reasonably good weather. 30 miles tomorrow.

VRWC: Since my Elitist, Leftist friends out there know better than I how terrible "fossil fuels" are, it's becoming increasingly difficult to afford energy. As a cost savings, I have taken a significant amount of wood from a friend to use as fuel next winter to keep the wife and I warm (we can make our own heat, but only for so long....I'm old, for cryin' out loud). So, instead of using clean-burning natural gas or electricity from power plants that control their emissions, I will use smoky, unrestricted wood to heat my house. Just as those in the third world are using wood or dried dung to do so. It's amazing how smart some claim to be, then turn out to be so short sighted.

Tuesday is "Earth Day". I plan to have a carbon footprint as big as Algores.

I don't think I have the resources to make as big of a carbon footprint as Algore for a day without setting fire to an overgrown, brush-filled forest.

Sounds like a good plan....
