Fracking Tuesday

Fracking billboard
Last Tuesday, Sidney, Nebraska local James Osborn appeared before the state’s Oil and Gas Conservation Commission to object to the proposal of a fracking wastewater storage well operated by Terex Energy Corp. In a YouTube video, later circulated on Reddit, Osborn pours three cups of cloudy water.

“You told me this morning when I was in here… that you would drink this water,” he says to the commission. “So, would you drink it?”

After a pause, someone replies, “Sir, we [can’t] comment on this.”

    Finally figured out the pic size issue, the WP gurus changed stuff again now specifying the max size of , thumbnail, medium, and large images, WHO CARES! it has worked fine for 3000 posts!!
    That is because the gurus must justify their jobs by staying busy re-arranging the deck chairs.
    Free blog does not imply it is free of issues, Beep Bop Beep Bozos!

    We’ll all be drinking fracking water at some point, or we won’t have anything to drink.

    Looks like it’s a go for the bathroom remodel this Friday/Saturday. They talked me into doing the floor, too, so Bob and I went to Lowe’s today and bought 40 1 foot square pieces of that heavy stuff. Um, tile? Shale? Marble? It’s not linoleum. This is scary, what if we stumble going into the bathroom because that stuff is thick. Brian said “transition strip” and it shouldn’t be a problem.

    Hit Meijer’s (big box store) in Mason on the way home for the trimmings for turkey dinner and for Easter bunny stuff. Got the Thanksgiving turkey out of the freezer and put it in the fridge to defrost. So, another big cooking day, blech. But everyone LOVES my turkey dinner. Even me, lol. Mmm.

    That strawberry cake I made for Nicholas’ birthday Sunday was soooooo good! I WILL be making that one again, but not for Sunday. Down the road.

    “if by chance life ever seems laborious, or a sacrifice, then you are looking at the offramps instead of the highway. You are missing the signpost up ahead, the one that reads ‘infinity'”.

    Going Clear on HBO is a must watch.
