Green Tip: Yes, You Can! Aluminum cans are a recycling success story; there's nothing like an economic incentive to motivate change. While you won't get paid for steel cans, in many places you can recycle them through curbside pickup. So, empty them, rinse them, put the lids inside, and mash them flat if you local recycling authority prefers that. According to a steel industry organization, every ton of steel that is recycled conserves 2,500 pounds of iron ore and 1,400 pounds of coal. [This fact brought to you by Page-a-Day calendar.]
We went to the Tippery Inn last night to celebrates a friends birthday and take in a little pirate song action compliments of the Bilge Pumps. One of the pirates, Phil, was getting ready to cut off his hair for Locks of Love. So, in addition to the normal pirate ditties, there was also a competition to determine what type of haircut Phil would receive. One dollar equaled one vote and all proceeds went to Locks of Love along with the hair. Our table's vote won. Poor Phil will be bald and might look a little bit more like an army man rather than a pirate, but several children will benefit from his donation and our votes.
I did get to watch some of the Olympics on the sports bar side of the Tippery last night. Phelps is now six for six. The womens' gymnastics all-around competition also saw a little history of its own. For the first time in Olympic history, the first and second place finisher in this event came from the same nation. Both young ladies put in great performances. Congratulations to Nastia Liukin and Shawn Johnson.
