Much can be said about the Boston Marathon bombing, but this wonderful cover says it all.
Magazine editor, John Wofson says:
"To me the cover is about two things: perseverance and unity. By itself, each shoe in the photograph is tiny, battered, and ordinary. Together, though, they create something beautiful, powerful, and inspirational. Remove just one shoe and you begin to diminish, in some small way, the overall effect. Collectively, they are the perfect symbol for Boston, and for our response to the bombings."
As for me, lives will indeed be changed but it should not keep us from trying again and finishing the race.
Mine was OK. My family decided to eat out, so it was definitely "lights out" at home :-)
Just glad to do our part in saving the environment.
While we are on the topic of being environmentally friendly and cool, let us talk about ways to save and conserve energy.
Right now, I want to talk about water and taking showers.
You've probably heard the saying "Save water, shower with a friend".
Well, I've found a much easier way to save water, alone - Just pee in the shower.
Toilet flushing or in most cases here, the "buhos" system, accounts for most of the water use at home. One flush wastes around 4 to 5 liters of good water. Water you can use for more worthwhile causes like cooking and drinking right?
Or if you're finding it gross (urine is sterile btw, and some say cures athlete's foot) this video shows you how "one scoop can clean you up" and I dare you to do the same.
