Making good Mondays is like making coffee -

The week is before us - like the coffee pot - waiting to brew. Making it good is a matter of choice, luck, creativity, patience and acceptance of the outcome.

Links for Making Good Mondays

Earth Day gets bigger every year. April 22, 2009 celebrated "The Green Generation." It brings to mind how fragile our home planet is and how much we are tied to the waters of the ocean and to the land. The oceans are home to our cousins the whales and our friends the dolphins. These are the Green Generation's core principles:
  • A carbon-free future based on renewable energy that will end our common dependency on fossil fuels, including coal.
  • An individual’s commitment to responsible, sustainable consumption.
  • Creation of a new green economy that lifts people out of poverty by creating millions of quality green jobs and transforms the global education system into a green one.

Here are a few related links sent by my regular contributors:

"Oprah Shines Light On Great Pacific Garbage Patch (VIDEO)#," from The Huffington Post (4/23/09).

"Trooper charged with stealing loads of mulch*," from Press & Sun-Bulletin, (4/23/09). Betmo comments, "Wow, you know things are tough."

"BigAg Ticked at Michelle Obama's Organic Garden,*" from Common Dreams (4/23/09). Summary: "Michelle Obama's decision to make her new White House vegetable garden entirely organic has angered America's powerful agribusiness lobby who are urging the First Lady to consider the use of appropriate "crop protection products".

"Longest place name spelt wrongly*," from Anova. The post begins: "Embarrassed US officials have been forced to admit that they have been spelling Lake Chargoggagoggmanchauggagoggchaubunagungamaugg wrongly for years." Betmo quips, "guess they have eeggg on their faces:)."

Hat Tip Key
: Regular contributors of links to leads are Betmo*, Dan'l+ and Jon#.
