Pam's entry said that 12.5 million gallons of water loss was for all the leaks. Mr. Hawthorne calculated that the 38 meters accounted for about half of the total water loss. Therefore, if I have it correct about 6 million gallons of water loss due to the 38 meters. Is that correct?
The Musical Instrument Museum is in Scottsdale, on Tatum just south of the 101. If you are coming south on Tatum you make a right turn just after Mayo Boulevard. I think there might be a sign that directs you off the 101, it might refer to MIM (meaning Musical Instrument Museum)
I am amazed. 38 of the meters that were supposed to solve some PSWID problems are now the cause of leaks that could cause 12.5 million gallons of water loss in a year??????????? The possibility of raising a bond issue to $12 million????????????Altering meters thereby voiding their warranty??????????
I simply cannot believe what I have read. My mind cries out for a logical explanation. I hope someone from PSWID will see fit to give an explanation.
They call it black because sales on that day often determines whether a merchant (talking about profits) is in the black for the year.
I think the whole black Friday is an example of uncontrolled commercialism. Stampeding a store just to get a bargain??? Knocking people over to get a bargain???Crazy!!!!!
I can remember once when I was very young. We were at my oldest sister's house for Thanksgiving. We were all in the living room watching a college football game. My brother in law remarked that he thought it was just terrible that college kids were required to play a game and be away from their family on Thanksgiving. You can imagine what he would think if he saw today's craziness. He was from a different time. Perhaps it was also a better time.
This is my second try. I hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving. We had our Portland family visiting since Monday so I haven't been on the internet. I have now seen the first 2 Hunger Games movies. They were better than I thought they would be. We also went to the Musical Instrument Museum. If you ever have a chance to visit this museum, please do. I think you will be pleasantly surprised.
We all have much to be thankful for.
Ron, I often wonder how we got to the point where the ultra conservatives and the ultra liberals believe that it is better to argue rather than negotiate and reach a common ground. The recent government shut down is a good case in point, and came out of an attitude of my point of view is so important that I will inflict hardship on everyone. Now please realize that I attribute this attitude to liberals as well as conservatives.
The open debate or discussion of opposing views is simply not done on the national level nor on the local level.
The question of whether to take children "away from parents" or not is always a difficult one. CPS is often severely criticized for a bad outcome when CPS has left a child with his "parents. I think one has to carefully assess all the information, pray and hope the correct decision is made.
Tom, going back to your original question -- should the health care act be amended.... I really don't know. There are so many people (Congressmen, Lobbyists, etc.) out there with their own private agenda that I don't think we are anywhere getting the whole truth and nothing but the truth about the Act. The President saying, "You can keep your health insurance" and then having so many cancellations because the policies don't meet the minimum requirements. What was he thinking when he made that statement. And then the mess with the on line market place. There is no excuse for all of the glitches with the website. They had several years and spent mega bucks and they ended up with a mess. Absolutely no excuse?}!!!! Can't the USA get anything right? Sorry I am just "down" this morning.
Ron, do you think an "open mind" should be added to your list of traits? We have been at the water wars longer than we have been in Afghanistan. However, I think you will agree that the two conflicts have some commonality. :-)
Amen! Especially to civility!!!
