USPS dead in the water thanks to the Congress

There have been stories about the United States Postal Service reducing mail service. One big issue is that customers that receive their prescription medicine by post may not receive them in time due to the closure of postal centers and the deduction of delivery days. Well, order the medications earlier. And the complaint of all the "ad" (junk) mail. Greatly increase the postage of said mail. That will reduce some of the mail and increase revenue.

The main problem is the charter of the Postal Service. If Congress would get off its butt and change the charter to allow the USPS to provide services similar to what European and other governments are allowed to provide, that may delay the disappearance of mail service a bit longer. 

Want to reduce your junk mail?

Oh, and we don't need all that colorful packaging and advertising. We know what's out there and don't need you to tell us what crap to purchase. We're just not smart enough not to buy it.

Keurig's Environmental Fail

Keurig's new "Choose, Brew, Enjoy" TV advert is a large FAIL. There is no mention of recycling the K-Cups or using the K-Cup Reusable Coffee Filter. If Keurig is an environmentally responsible company they would mention these points. Apparently they are not.

"Yellow Submarine"

Downloaded my very first ebook. "Yellow Submarine". Free on iTunes.

Pronghorn

Observed over 300 pronghorn while traveling through Wyoming. Saw 100+ in one herd. Very impressive. Interesting in how they approached a fence on a wide front but would jump over the fence in only one place following one another.
