Ta-Da List

I will not sit here an lie to you anymore.....I always make to do lists and always end up losing them. Or they never get completed. I've tried so many different methods.

-Scrap paper
-Keeping a notebook
-Writing on the back of my hand

And countless other ideas that didnt last more than a week. There is finally something out there that I think works!
Ta-Da Lists. It's super easy and you can do so much with it. You can send your list to multiple email address. You can send it to your friends and family so they can stay on your ass!! You can access your list anywhere you are because it's done online and these days everyone and their twin sister has access to the internet 24/7.

I hope you enjoy. This has helped me out so much. I can stay on track easier and I can have a fancy ta-da list.

Our Choice

I just finished reading Al Gore's new book Our Choice. Everyone on this planet should read it. Stop assuming someone else is going to make the difference!! Al lays everything out on the table. He tells us what's going on and what needs to happen to make a change. I highly recommend this book. But I also recommend educating yourself with what you can do to keep this earth a better place to live on.

Buy the Local Beer!!

If your a beer drinker buying local has so many benefits. Buying local can help keep your money circulating through your hometown. It also helps the local brewing company and their business. Sure, you can easily buy a Miller Lite or Bud Lite but you know what those taste like. Why not buy something local? There are so many great beers out there. If your out with friends try to make it a goal to try something new and local.

The beer pictured is great. Oberon is a beer brewed in Kalamazoo Michigan. It goes great with everything and you won't have to pay and arm and a leg for a six pack.

Happy beer drinking.

Idling your car. What the hell is that?

Idling is when a driver leaves the car running while parked. Everyday this happens all to often. Yes, there are times when your car will be running while you are stopped. Maybe at a traffic light or stop sign. But most times idling is unnecessary. Here are some great tips from the EDF, Enviromental Defense Fund that can help and really open your eyes.

Four ways to be idle-free

-Turn off you ignition if you're waiting more than 10 seconds - Contrary to popular belief, restarting your car does not burn more fuel than leaving it idling. In fact, idling for just 10 seconds wastes more gas than restarting the engine.

-Warm up your engine by driving it, not by idling - Today's electronic engines do not need to warm up, even in winter. The best way to warm the engine is by easing into your drive and avoiding excessive engine revving. After just a few seconds, your vehicle is safe to drive! The vehicle's engine warms twice as quickly when driven.

-Warm up the cabin interior by driving, not idling - Easing into your drive is also the best way to get your vehicle’s heating system delivering warmer air faster. Sitting in an idling car means you are breathing in more of the dirty exhaust that leaks into the car cabin. Any warmth you may get from a car heater is not worth the damage to your health. If parked and waiting, it is healthier to get out of your car and go inside a store or building.

-Protect your car engine by idling less - Frequent restarts are no longer hard on a car’s engine and battery. The added wear (which amounts to no more than $10 a year) is much less costly than the cost of fuel saved (which can add up to $70-650 a year, depending on fuel prices, idling habits and vehicle type). Idling actually increases overall engine wear by causing the car to operate for longer than necessary.

Reasons to stop idling

A simple turn of your key can keep the air cleaner and save money and fuel. Every time you turn off your car engine in place of idling, you'll:

-Make the air healthier by cutting down on hazardous pollution in your town or community.

-Help the environment. For every 10 minutes your engine is off, you'll prevent one pound of carbon dioxide from being released (carbon dioxide is the primary contributor to global warming).
-Keep money in your wallet and save fuel. Save between 1/5 to 7/10 of a gallon of fuel for every hour of not idling.

What harm does idling do?

There are three main problems with idling:

First, idling pollutes the air and harms health. Idling tailpipes spew out the same pollutants that form unhealthy smog and soot as those from moving cars. Nitrogen oxide, particulate matter, carbon monoxide and volatile organic compounds are the main health-harming pollutants in vehicle emissions. Diesel engines emit more than 40 hazardous air pollutants.

These pollutants have been linked to serious human illnesses, including:
-heart disease,
-chronic bronchitis and

Children, the elderly and those with asthma and other chronic health problems are especially vulnerable to the health dangers of exhaust.

Pollution from idling contributes to global warming. Idling cars and trucks emit carbon dioxide (CO2), a main heat-trapping gas. In New York City alone, idling cars and trucks each year produce 130,000 tons of carbon dioxide, a new EDF report shows (see Idling Gets You Nowhere [PDF]). To offset this amount of global warming pollution, we would need to plant an area the size of Manhattan with trees every single year.

Idling wastes fuel and money. An idling car uses between 1/5 to 7/10 of a gallon of fuel an hour. An idling diesel truck burn approximately one gallon of fuel an hour. With average U.S. prices for diesel fuel topping $2 a gallon (as of 2/2/09), that's about $2 burned.
