    rocket got a reaction from Friends just call me Ross in JW Library   
    My wife and I's android tablets are having problems with highlighting. example: highlight one line and it disappears when another line is highlighted. That highlight disappears when yet another line is highlighted.  Turning tablet off and on again helps little but even when I think I have succeeded it all disappears.  This problem started at the same time with both tablets.  It is set to auto-update so I don't know if an app update caused the problem.

    "The Thurston County Sheriff says its detectives and agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives are investigating.
     
    A task force has been looking into attacks targeting several Kingdom Halls in the last year in Thurston County. A hall in Olympia was set on fire twice -- and destroyed by the second fire. In Yelm, shots were fired into the hall back in March. So far, nobody has been hurt in these attacks.
     
    ATF agents have told Q13 News in the past that it's only a matter of time before someone is hurt or killed"

    LACEY, Wash. -- Fire ripped through a Jehovah's Witness Kingdom Hall early Friday morning in Lacey.
     
    Lacey firefighters told Q13 News that someone called 911 just before 3:45 a.m. and multiple agencies are at the scene. There were no reports of anyone being injured.

    So you think I am doing enough not to make things worse?
    I don't buy plastic bags ( to save money), but I take small free ones to weigh food). I don't use single use plates and cutlery because there's no need to do it. I don't buy water in plastic bottles ( to save money).
    It's not about the garbage but I don't use a car and try to save water and electricity.
    So is it enough? 
    You know, I don't worry about planes and other means of transport because I don't own them. But I own my garbage, I myself buy it, it's mine and I am to decide what to do with it. That is my opinion.
    BTW my husband doesn't want to buy local milk because local cows can eat garbage.

    During the summer local cows wander everywhere and eat everything they find. They can find much garbage( some is toxic) so we think their milk is not safe to drink. Don't you agree?
  14. Wow!
    rocket got a reaction from Dove in zero waste   
    Another thing to consider locally is the reduction in what is acceptable to recycle. A near by Congregation received a $300 fine for having an article in the recycle that was not acceptable. So now they have to scrutinize every article in the recycle bin before it's picked up.

    Sometimes even when a person does everything possible to contribute to a clean planet, the people responsible for disposing of recycled products get greedy.  Occasionally we see where someone has dumped recycled products in streams and rivers in mass.

    Funny, I was just thinking of that this morning. I would like to get proficient at using Google translate so I can write brothers and sisters in other lands to encourage them (like Russia). Maybe someone who is good at using it can start a topic to help the rest of us use this great tool properly to help us get our main thoughts through in an understandable way.

    rocket reacted to Tortuga in My DNA   
    I think we discussed that in one of the other DNA threads and discovered that a lot of people do not want anyone to have access to their DNA results.
     
    I use to work with several people that refused to participate in any free Health Screening provided by our employer. The free blood test was intended to help the employees determine if they needed to make lifestyle changes and live a healthier life. However, several people were convinced the company was secretly screening for potential medical issues that might affect their career and medical coverage. They felt the company may plan to terminate anyone that might develop medical issues that could affect their job performance, job attendance or medical coverage costs.
     
    It's hard to say if they were right or wrong...
