What kind of vehicle do you drive and how many miles per year?   How many kwHr per month do you consume?  How many square feet is your house?  Do you travel for vacations?   How far?

Since you asked, between the two of us we drive less than 20k annually mostly for work. Keep our thermostat turned as low as it goes in the winter about 56 degrees, we use a small pellet stove in our tv room in the evening and it doesn't take much energy to wear a sweater. We run the air rarely. Usually one trip up to northern MN annually. Yes, we try to consider the future for our children, how about you? How many miles a year, temp of your dwelling in the winter?

Water is free? Hardly. 

Nothing is free.

 

But your water analogy is similar to my chicken nugget analogy. Times change and someday we (or at least our kids) will be eating lab grown meat and a few generations from now, people will wonder how we ever got along doing it "the old fashioned way".

Show me a picture of a drinking fountain from back then that had a coin slot.😁

Or you live in Flint Michigan.

I'm in Lansing Michigan right now. Not sure but it seems the water is ok here.

We maybe drive 15k between the two of us.  We do keep the house warmer thanks to fracking but we don't have any auxiliary stoves.    Looks like you are doing your part.

I try to consider the future of our children by not voting for Democrats or similar politicians who will keep raising taxes and adding national debt. How about you?

Is that better than adding to the debt while lowering taxes? 

 

Man, think of all the pug barns in Minnesota we would lose if this takes off.

 

Actually, pig barns are the single biggest consumer of water in rural areas.

 

The growers hope this never comes to the surface but every time it quits raining (no problem currently lol) and cities tell their residents to stop watering their grass, nobody talks about the vast amount of water used in the pig barns,ethanol plants and crop irrigation. 

 

I would rather get my steaks on the hoof so to speak.

Kind of off topic but which politicians don't raise our debt? And, unless you are among the top of the top in income you really aren't seeing a substantial tax cut. Just more smoke and mirrors.

Maybe, We have some of that disease in the family. I'm of the opinion that if you are diabetic the kind of beer you should drink is NO BEER.

That's YOUR opinion.

Article on WSJ.com today about a European clean meat startup getting nearly $9 million in funding from Merck. With big pharma in the game, is there really any doubt it will be on store shelves soon? The cattle and pork industry better come up with a "pink slime" type of name for this, or they can kiss their herds goodbye. Franken Meat?

    • Yeah, the last couple of weeks have been pretty uneventful at my feeders. Then all of sudden today I was bombarded with multiple species!    I had 2 hen pheasants pecking around, then later the rooster showed up. There were robins everywhere. The blue jays are back to eating up the peanuts within minutes of me putting them out. I’ve actually been saving money the last couple weeks on sunflower chips, because the goldfinches disappeared. But today I had redpolls out there for the first time of the season. So I’ll have to start working some overtime to afford the food they go through! Have a lot more woodpeckers this winter than last year as well.
    • 🤣 man leech go chase some cottontails.   Man that was funny!
    • Yep mine are back as well other then the Cardinals and Blue Jay's yet.  
    • Hawg go to this site. It will help you id them.  https://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/    
    • It looks like you were using my cell phone to take those pics. I'm also surprised an old guy like you could stay up that late! Just kidding!
    • Thank you, looks like I have a ton of them and not the goldies, I'm kind of disappointed. There's quite a bit of difference, I must have been fooled by the yellow on the siskins. It's been a while since I had either. I'm still looking for my bird books to identify the others. It seems the older I get the better I get at hiding stuff from myself! Thanks again, Mark
    • not my pic but here is a winter goldie. pretty drab
    • pine siskins. look a lot like winter goldies just smaller
    • Eyeguy, do you have a picture of a winter goldfinch and a pine siskin? I'm not 100% sure I know the difference. Any idea what the birds are I posted about with the colored backs? Those are on the safflower seed heavy, not on the niger at all. I wish I had a lens to take a picture to show you.
