A Reminder

Plant trees that are indigenous to your community.

Seriously though. Does this stuff really work? Sure, PETA gets press from naked hot chicks, but does anybody even remember anything besides the hot chick? I'm linking right now, but nobody is going to plant an indigenous tree. They're just thinking that's a bunch of asses in bikinis.

Don't get me wrong, I think hot chicks are the secret to world peace, but global warming and environmental issues? Not so much.

Oh I dunno, image #7 was 'say no to excessive packaging" and she's sort of giving a nice image of non-excessive packaging.

Insert 'indigenous bush' joke here.

Goin' blue? This is a family blog for fuck's sake.

You should talk your employer into a round-the-world trip to thoroughly examine indigenous bush? Compare and contrast across nations. I'd start in Brazil and Argentina, if I were you. If Mrs.s. objects, just say it's for the Earth.

I believe it's all been exterminated in Brazil and Argentina. dave.s.

Exactly...

Your mission, if you choose to accept it, would be to keep searching until you've either found it or exhausted the entire country.

Not to be too off-topic, but ...

Limiting oneself to indigenous trees is very unwise. It dramatically increases the risk of losing them to localized blights -- e.g., dogwoods and hemlock in Virginia, pines in California and Oregon, etc. I plant a half dozen trees a year, and three or four of them are always "non-local" varieties.

(This is only an argument about ornamental trees -- not trees that are off in the woods.)

Homer will tell you that hot chicks are not the secret to world peace.

Homer was blind.

FLG said...

"Homer was blind."

Take that, Withy.

Damn it, Andrew.

Every couple of days you write something that makes me feel incredibly stupid for not realizing it sooner.

Withywindle passed that one all the way to the net; I just had to tap it in.

Homer, however, just showed that a hot chick is not the secret to world peace. FLG is obviously saying hot chicks are the secret to world peace. The difference is all the difference.
