In just a few weeks I'll be in Nepal... that helps me... this next few weeks is going to be complicated... I'll focus on these prayer flags... especially when I see idlers (three today).

Clip this out

I have had it... folks are just sitting in their car and cooling/warming themselves... so after talking to another student sitting in her car for over 5 minutes... I ran a set of these off (4 to a page) and cut´m up and will keep some in my wallet / truck... to put on a car’s windshield... feel free to use/adapt it...

A Car is not an Air Conditioner!

Did you know that it is illegal to sit and idle your motor?
If you are sitting in your car for more than 30 seconds, then get out and PLEASE! Turn off your car… go somewhere cool, your car is not an air conditioner!

Think about it…
1. global warming
a. idling makes more smog
2. air quality
a. many of us have asthmas… your pollution hurts you, your family and neighbors
3. the war
a. there are thousands of people dying because of OIL
b. your consumption contributes to making war
c. There are a hundred students that are in Iraq and who cannot continue to study here…
4. PLUS! Its just plane bad for your car!

Idling you engine is wrong! A car is not an Air Conditioner!

Our second to last tutoring session for the K’Wood kids and the CSUS student teachers. It was almost 90 (32.2 c). Mr. Croom decided that we should do some tangrams, and it was great fun,. As well as interesting to see kids who won’t try it. While I was walking around with my camera, three silly girls asked me to take their picture.

Another one of my friends who are "outstanding in their field", Jeri, met me Friday and we did errands... things like, drive around in the rain, go get my hat I left in the restaurant by PSU in the rain, do some phone calling she needed to do, drive around in the rain, go to the Japanese garden in the rain, then it rained... so we drove down ( in the rain) to Dunthorpe and my old school which was just getting out in the rain (both of us agreed that it was most unwise to take pictures of a rain soaked school when all the rich mothers were picking up their rich kids in the rain... so we continued on down the road to the Elk Rock Garden of the Bishop's Estate at the foot of Military Lane (rymes with rain). Stunning place... and we were lucky as the rain stopped just as we got there… a must if you make it to PDX.... we drove back to have dinner in the rain... met her husband and our friend Mary at a restaurant named "Noble Rot"... great place... good freinds rain or shine.
