A Word About Recycling - July 17

Although I had planned to use several items from a recent Recycling Today eNewsletter, when I started reading about this smaller recycling company in Austin, it captured my interest and thus it will be the only item in today’s column. (Please note I do not mention the company’s name as I am not advertising for them nor want to promote them over other recycling companies in the area.)

Pinterest addiction: Be wise when acquainting yourself with website

Pinterest, otherwise known as crack for people who don’t do drugs. 

If you’re not familiar with Pinterest, it’s a website hosting an unfathomable abundance of ideas, images and information regarding food, clothes, crafts, humor and making and decorating of any sort. 

Basically, it encompasses every single creative suggestion to ever emerge from the minds of people with far more initiative than me.

For example, let’s say you’re going to a potluck and you want to find a recipe for a new dessert.

Teens ranging in age from 12 to 17 are encouraged to participate in the San Marcos Public Library’s upcoming Teen Talent Show.

Whether teens draw, paint, sing, dance, act, tell jokes or juggle, they are needed to display their artistic gifts as well as any other age-appropriate talents during the show that will take place Friday, July 29 at 10:30 a.m.  

They are limited by their own imaginations in showcasing their creative spirits, and the talent show serves as the Summer Reading Program’s grand finale.

Allandelle Girl Camp has done it again! Yet another local connection was made in the spirit of giving, community and friendship.

AGC Founder and Director Lisa Shell Allan and her counselors-in-training recently visited Cuevas Produce where they cheerfully perused the wide variety of fresh, healthy produce for sale at the locally famous shop.
