    Sure, I will listen to their input but I have to be honest, 90% of what most have to say isn't worth hearing, but in an effort to be fair to the 10%, I listen.........and some of the stuff people come up with........WOW........

    I watched 6 people walking in the neighborhood walk right over a piece of trash lying in the road. When I stopped and picked it up, someone asked me why I do that. The fact they asked me actually made me mad. It's because I LIVE HERE and if I don't do something, how can I expect others to do anything? Why is it always someone else's responsibility to take action?

    Why not take pride in where you live? Why not want to keep it nice and a clean, safe place to live? We live in a world where everyone else expects someone else to take care of them.

    It's like all of the people have their heads buried in the sand, likely because the extra 1 degree has made the temps intolerable.

    Just curious, how did they measure, record and keep track of ambient temperatures 200 years ago? 500 years ago? 1,000 years ago? 500,000 years ago, 4 million years ago?

    So when we are told this is the "hottest year ever", is that since humans have been recording temperatures or is it EVER? Did Dino the Dinosaur keep a log of daily temps in his backpack with his juice boxes and Apple devices while he flew around on a private jet to "Climate Meetings" where they use all single use plastics and create a mountain of trash while in their climate controlled hotel meeting rooms before retiring to their climate controlled suites? Oh wait, that's Al Gore and Leonardo DiCaprio......each on their own jet.....

    Let me guess, all of the world's historic temperatures records are kept on Facebook?
    I have children and grandchildren and am concerned about the world we will leave them. They have a life span longer than the dogs so yes I am concerned about climate change. Hot temps aren't the only indicators as any person with a kindergarten education knows. Consider colder temps , more bigger better storms , fires,...etc. Things are just radically different than when I was young. I'm getting old and I don't care so much about my future but I care about the youth. Me and a bud did some beers and some deep thinking over the situation last night, he has a headache today!

    LOL! I have a Macbook at work and it has been every bit as wacky and problematic as any Windows laptop I've ever had (and I've been using them since 1994). And I'm on my 3rd one in two years because they have a habit of the battery expanding and warping the case.

    My apologies, I honestly did not intentionally aim that at you.

    Total lack of tact on my part.
    My bad.

    I took my daughter's laptop into an Apple store for repair one time and it was full of the "Applesnobs". I told her the next time it needed repair, she would take it in. I haven't been back into that store since and can't imagine ever going back.
