Weekend funny that hit home with me

 

This is why I started putting my grocery list on my phone.  Problem solved thanks to a smartphone.

Will Howard County ever get a homegrown Congressperson?


      Maryland has one of the most gerrymandered congressional maps in the United States.  Being centrally located in the state we are used to be pulled into many directions to keep elected officials from other counties elected.  We have always been represented by Baltimore-based officials.  When we moved to Howard County we were in the district with western Maryland.  Now we get divided among Baltimore districts.  Wouldn't it be nice to have Howard County with over 300,000 residents according to the latest Census figures kept whole one day and have a chance to have a locate official become our congressperson?

Maybe saving Earth is better than the alternative


     When I saw the pictures from Mars taken by the Perseverance rover and learned that the temperature was minus 40 degrees with an atmosphere that was 1 % of Earth's it reminded me of how we should appreciate what we have on Earth.  Messing with our climate may mean that future generations won't have the environment that I saw on a recent morning in Columbia. The contrast is stark.
