50 New Things
This year I'm going to try to do at least 50 things I've never done before (I did not come up with this idea...but they say imitation is the highest form of flattery ;-). If you have ideas, feel free to make suggestions. I'll document them on the list below, with links if possible.
36. Played craps and roulette for the first time at a casino.
35. Visited the world's largest bead store (Shipwreck Beads).
34. Drove over a floating bridge
33. Flew in a helicopter!!
32. Visited Mount St. Helen's - wanted to see this for the past 30 yrs
BP - worst saftey record in the country. BP - the cause of more than one leak. Now, BP has created an underwater oil volcano that threatens to destroy some of the most delicate marine habitats in the world.
Limbaugh tells us that "ecology takes care itself" and "seawater is tough stuff." I say we coat him in the stuff and float him out there for a few days/weeks to do first hand "journalism." Sadly, embryonic shrimp are not, bones and wings and fins are not tough stuff. Thus far they've criminally underestimated the amount of oil spewing forth (by an order of magnitude), told us it is the fault of the company that owned the oil rig, and claim that they are working as hard as they can. Time will tell. The time now? To send them back to the UK with a fond farewell.
