Newsletter #00038

Sorry it's so late, and now Brad will be angry with me because I didn't put it out yesterday, or Friday. Anyways, here it is. (Oh, and thank you Kasey for doing it on Wednesday.)

Honestly, I have no idea on what to write about, so I will be just randomly typing things until something productive comes out.

I recently found a very interesting conspiracy website while on my quest to become a telekinetic. The name of the website is . It is just for laughs, some of things are amusing. So, if you are bored and want to have something to read, that is a good website.

An interesting fact that I noticed is that 1 is the only singular number. Even zero gets pluralized. I have 1 dollar. I have 2 dollars. I have 0 dollars. Even the negatives are pluralized. I am in debt negative 25 dollars. I am at negative 1 dollars. Another one of my random observations.

If you want to grown an apple tree, there are some tips that you might want to follow. If you start from a seedling, it can take several years for it to turn into a sprout. So, it is adviseable to get a sapling that has already started to grow from a nursery, and then transplant it into your yard. Dig a hole, fill it with fertizlizer, and then let it grow. Make sure that where it is planted is a spot where it will receive full sunlight. It may take a couple years for the tree to start producing fruit. An apple tree also needs care, so do not plant one unless you are ready for the upkeep of it once it does start to grow big.

Gardening is something that I find mildly interesting, probably something that I will have when I get my own house, but not something that is really captivating for me. When I get my own house, I'd like to have a vegetable/herb garden. It'd be nice to have fresh food grown in my backyard, and plus it always tastes better. Also, it's good for the environment, which is always a plus. =D

Something that I also enjoy doing is baking. Making cakes, brownies, cookies, etc. It may seem wierd, but they taste reallllllly good. My sweet tooth is mostly always satisfied. Yummm.....

A good movie to watch is called an Inconvient Truth. The link is for thetrailer. The full movie is really good as well.

Throughout this note, I somehow started on a green type of way, with the environment and all that. I actually believe global warming is real, and people who say it is all political agenda and such really get me angry. We have done this to our planet. Mass production and the burning of oil, coal, and other greenhouse gases all raise the temperature of our planet. I am not the greenest person, and I'm not saying that I am. But I am pushing my family to recycle more than just cans, and I shut off lights when I'm not using them. And when I get my own car, I do want it to be a hybrid or pure electric. If I get a good job, then I would get solar panels for my house. I do want to do more green things, but being only 16, I'm limited to what I can do. However, there are things that even anyone can do to help.

• Shut off lights when you're not using them.
• Walk to places that are a short distance instead of driving/being driven.
• Recycle cans, plastic bottles, paper, etc.
• Unplug appliances that are not being used.
• Use less water when showering, or cold water when washing clothes.
• Carpool to places.

There's more to do, and it's all easy stuff. Though you don't see a difference, there is a difference being made.

One more thing. There's an application on facebook that is actually designed to save rainforest area. I would advise you all to add it and at least try it. The link is .

And thus this ends my newsletter.

It's like poker. You need to deal with the cards you've been dealt.
