Nearing 9000

So, as the summer winds down, the figs are ripening and the mornings are cooler.  The daily run will be moving to the eve soon as school starts up next week.  On track to meet the goal of 1000 miles.

I work from home, and Sue goes into the office (School)...I have to wait for PC Richard to come to fix the dishwasher, which has stopped leaking BTW.

The dishwasher has a new door assembly to keep it from leaking.  Happy to have bought the extended warranty.  LG top of the line appliances about 2 years old.  We have had the microwave replaced, the fridge  and dishwasher repaired.

This day in history "On this day in 2006, the California State Senate passes Assembly Bill (AB) 32, otherwise known as the Global Warming Solutions Act. The law made California the first state in America to place caps on carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases, including those found in automobile emissions.
The Global Warming Solutions Act became law thanks to an alliance between the state's Republican governor, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and its Democratic-controlled legislature. The bill's passage solidified California's role as a leader in enacting legislation aimed at combating global warming, or the gradual increase in the overall temperature of the earth's atmosphere due to the so-called "greenhouse effect" caused by increased levels of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases. California--which represents 10 percent of the nation's automobile market and is known for its struggles with air pollution--took the lead early in setting stricter fuel emissions standards than the federal government's."

A step in the right direction to reduce carbon dioxide emissions.

I am waiting for the C-MAX Energi ...a Ford vehicle to hit the streets this Fall.  Need to see the vehicle and test drive it.  At $30K the price is a bit steep for me to say give me one....if purchased, it will represent my 3rd "green initiative".

I am Nearing 9000 blog views and also nearing 9000 Kilowatt Hours of Solar energy produced.

Which will hit 9000 first ?
