The original green way of living …

In the line at the store, the cashier told the older woman that plastic bags WEREN’T good for the environment. The woman apologized to her and explained, We didn’t have the green thing back in my day. That’s right, they didn’t have the green thing in her day.Back then, they returned their milk bottles, Coke bottles and beer bottles to the store. The store sent them back to the plant to be washed and sterilized and refilled, using the same bottles over and over. So they really were recycled. But they didn’t have the green thing back in her day. In her day, they walked up stairs, because they didn’t have an elevator in every store and office building.

They walked to the grocery store and didn’t climb into a 300-horsepower machine every time they had to go two blocks. But she’s right. They didn’t have the green thing in her day. Back then, they washed the baby’s diapers because they didn’t have the throw-away kind.

They dried clothes on a line, not in an energy-gobbling machine burning up 220 volts – wind and solar power really did dry the clothes. Kids got hand-me-down clothes from their brothers or sisters, not always brand-new clothing. But that old lady is right, They didn’t have the green thing back in her day.Back then, they had one TV, or radio, in the house – not a TV in every room. And the TV had a small screen the size of a pizza dish, not a screen the size of the state of Montana . In the kitchen, they blended and stirred by hand because they didn’t have electric machines to do everything for you. When they packaged a fragile item to send in the mail, they used wadded up newspaper to cushion it, not Styrofoam or plastic bubble wrap. They didn’t have the green thing back in her day.Back then, they didn’t fire up an engine and burn gasoline just to cut the lawn. They used a push mower that ran on human power. They exercised by working so they didn’t need to go to a health club to run on treadmills that operate on electricity. But she’s right, They didn’t have the green thing back then.

They drank from a fountain when they were thirsty, instead of using a cup or a plastic bottle every time they had a drink of water. They refilled pens with ink, instead of buying a new pen, and they replaced the razor blades in a razor instead of throwing away the whole razor just because the blade got dull. But they didn’t have the green thing back then. Back then, people took the streetcar and kids rode their bikes to school or rode the school bus, instead of turning their moms into 24-hour taxi services.

They had one electrical outlet in a room, not an entire bank of sockets to power a dozen appliances. And they didn’t need a computerized gadget to receive a signal beamed from satellites 2,000 miles out in space in order to find the nearest pizza joint. But that old lady is right. They didn’t have the green thing back in her day.

Just my thoughts ….

Today I  found some topic ideas on the daily post ,  and I just picked  a few interesting topics:

1:  If you knew you were going to die in 20 days, what would change?

Well ,I realized  this is a serious question and not just a “trick question”. at first  I’ll quit my job ,I wouldn’t spend another minute on my work, but spend as much time as I could with my family and friends. I would make sure that they know just how much I love them and will miss them . then traveling around the world with my parents, younger brother  and grandparents .
If time permits,I would like to stay one day with someone special .hehe 🙂

2:  What makes you feel like you’re still a kid?

Most of time ,lol…  especially when i was running in the rain ; jumping through puddles;singing in Karaoke; playing with kids ;snowball fighting etc.  🙂

3:  Make a top ten list of things to do this summer. And if you are somewhere in the world where the seasons are different, make a top ten list of things you want to do next season.

1.go climbing  2. Swimming  3.go to karaoke 4.Post on my blog and chat with my friends . 5. Cook for friends 6.The Vampire Dairies   7.Lost  8.Go to the Library  9.wilderness campgrounds  10. take short trips 🙂

What’s the difference between http & https?

Don’t know how many of you are aware of this difference ,but it is worth sending to those that may not . The main difference between http:/// and https:/// is it’s all about keeping you secure.

Http stands for Hyper Text Transfer Protocol. The S (big surprise) stands for “secure “.if you visit a website or webpage ,and look at the address in the web browser,it will likely begin with the following :http://. THis means that the website is talking your browser using the regular “unsecure”language .In other words ,it is possible for someone to “eavesdrop” on your computer’s conversation with the website .

If you fill out a form on the website,someone might see the imformation you send to that site . This is why you never ever enter your credit card number in an Http website !

But, if the web address begins with https://, that basically means your computer is talking to the website in a Secure code that no one can eavesdrop on. If a website ever asks you to enter your credit card Information, you should automatically look to see if the web address begins with https://. If it doesn’t, you should NEVER enter sensitive information such as a credit card number.
