Amnesty Day at the Dump
by bill - 2009-05-19 ( life / health / environment ) [html version]
That sounds weird, but I just returned from the dump/recycling center, in my case the one on Omohundro Drive. I dropped off the old dishwasher along with my usual recycling and household trash.
Anyway, the woman there told me that today (Saturday, May 15) is an unadvertised "amnesty day" when you can drop off ANYTHING (other than nuclear waste, probably), and you can spread it out over three trips. But hurry, I think the centers close at 4 or 4:30.

I am sooooo glad winter is over ... here in Nashville, anyway. I'm also glad we're not getting any flooding like North Dakota. Now, I need to make up for last year in my vegetable garden. Last year was a wash-out because of the late freeze warnings, combined with my back and knee problems.
Speaking of my knee, the hospital is still trying to collect payment for that operation because my so-called "insurance" company, Aetna - more like unnecessary middle man - refuses to pay them (around $10,000 or $4,800, depending on who you ask), saying that it was a cosmetic surgery, which they don't cover. The only flaw with their argument is that it wasn't "cosmetic surgery." Who has cosmetic surgery on their knee?! Runway models, maybe. You don't want to see me on the catwalk.
Aetna had no problem paying the surgeon, anesthesiologist and staff, just not the hospital itself, and it was for the SAME OPERATION! Pinheads. They, Aetna, are just trying to bury me in paperwork. Maybe it's my legal secretary experience, but that sort of tactic doesn't intimidate me. Speaking of legal, does anyone know of a good attorney who's been successful fighting retarded health insurance companies? It might come to that.
Speaking of hospitals, my wife Tara had a good idea: I should sign up as an IT temp with Vanderbilt hospital. They have their own temp agency for their IT staffing needs. Temp-to-perm jobs have always gone well for me because I NEVER interview well, but they like me once they see how well I work. I just don't seem to make a good first impression; not with Southern male hiring-managers, anyway. They like me on paper, then they meet me in person and sometimes seem to just have this gut-level dislike of me.
Temp-to-perm is how I got the two best jobs I've had in Nashville: first, with Healthtrust (now HCA), where I started as a temp doing Lotus Freelance presentations for the CIO, then "naturally" segued into running their email system; then in 2005, I started with Franklin Industrial Minerals (now Lhoist North America) as a temp "Application Support Specialist", or "A.S.S.", where everything was great until they were bought out by those jerks from Belgium. I almost forgot, I had another temp-to-perm job at Louisville Ladder in Smyrna (just south of Nashville) as their network admin before that plant was shut down and moved to Mexico.

Stop Buying Paper Towels
by bill - 2010-07-02 ( life / health / environment ) [html version]
Save the rain forests and add a little style back to your dinner table. Use dinner napkins. You know, actual cloth napkins. Remember those? Your mother used to use them. Maybe your grandmother. Anyway, stop buying paper towels! It's a waste of paper, and cloth napkins are actually cheaper in the long run, anyway.
Here's another short article on the subject. No, I didn't get the idea above from this one here. :)

Fall is Definitely Here
by bill - 2010-10-07 ( life / health / environment / blog ) [html version]
It was actually cold all day today, but that didn't stop me and Elizabeth, then the pugs, from spending half of our day outside! First, we went exploring the new neighborhood being built nearby. I don't know why they're building. There's plenty of existing houses that no one wants to buy. Whatever. At least they've created lots of good dirt piles to climb up and down! But it kills me how they chop down all the trees first. It's just stupid.
Then I came in and watched the Titans lose to the Broncos - snatching defeat from the jaws of victory, as they say when someone blows a lead - while Tara took Elizabeth grocery shopping with her.
Then Elizabeth, the pugs and I spent a couple hours at the park. Elizabeth spent most of the time on the playground while I walked the dogs along the extensive paved little trail, with a couple breaks in there. They're pugs, not greyhounds. They - and I - need breaks.
Winter Has Arrived
by bill - 2010-12-16 ( life / health / environment / weather ) [html version]
It's been snowing all day, at least an inch and a half accumulation. Earlier, I put some de-icer on the driveway in preparation for tomorrow morning. Before that, I had to walk the dogs in the snow. You know, pugs don't like snow. It just really throws them off, having to go potty on something white instead of green.
Lying here now, blogging and watching Sunday Night Football. I've got two of the three pugs and our only cat with me, asleep.

Radioactivity Around Chernobyl Reduced by 47% Using Only Processes of Earth

Wow, this is great! Next stop Fukishima?
As they committed to doing last April, on the occasion of the 35th commemoration of the Chernobyl accident, the Swiss-based company Exlterra has reported spectacular results after one year of decontamination on a 2.5 acre plot of land (1 hectare), located in the radioactive...
It works by leveraging in particular high velocity particles, also known as positrons, to target this naturally occurring force towards radioactive isotopes that are found in the soil. This then breaks the bonds holding these isotopes together. The best part is that this happens safely because it is done under the surface of the soil.

I didn't see the links from those old shows he mentioned. He mentioned "metabunk.com", with whom I had some discussions. He's up in Shingle Springs. I kept showing trails and he kept saying they were just contrails. I kept studying them and photographing them (I have thousands from a few years of photographing them on bike rides) and learned that trails come to be if the plane is above 22,000 feet because the exhaust (with moisture) freezes. The more moisture in the air, the longer the trail lasts (so, trails don't last too long in the dry summer air and are frequently long in the moist winter air). I don't think a trail can be accurately labeled unless somebody samples what is exhausted, what lands on the ground is tested, or you are behind a jet and see special ports spraying stuff.
