Good Morning rasmataz,
Your Q is an example of why I am not continuing the water facts next week. We had almond trees in Calif and it didn't take any extra water for a good crop, only what the trees received from the rain and the sprinkler when we watered the grass.

How much water is used during the growing/production of a single orange?
13.8 gallons

How much water is used during the growing/production of a watermelon?
100 gallons

How much water is used during the growing/production of a tomato?
3 gallons

Have a Fantastic Friday!

Yes, I made it to the concert on time. They recognized the seniors, my son is a senior this year. He is the only male senior in the choir, out of 8 seniors in the choir program.

Thanks for noting my post number.

Was planning on not working tomorrow, but got a call from another station and they need me to help in the morning and to help close in the evening, so will get to work after all. Tomorrow night will be the spring choir concert at my kids' school, so they will try to let me go a little early to be able to get there on time.

Good Morning rasmataz,
Thanks for the feedback.

Today is National Earth Day!

Each year on April 22, it is National Earth Day. This annual day is held to demonstrate support for environmental protection.

John McConnell pioneered the name and concept of Earth Day in 1969 at a UNESCO Conference in San Francisco.

In 2009, the April 22 date was designated as International Mother Earth Day by a consensus resolution adopted by the United Nations. The Earth Day Network now globally coordinates Earth Day and it is annually celebrated in more than 192 countries.

Turtles around the world are doing their part. Won't you join them?

Sounds good, Sunday's off.
Back when I was a kid most stores were closed on Sunday. Have times changed.

Your Sunday movie is, Strength and Courage by David L. Griffith.

Again, the length is less than stated, about 2:20 min.
The text may be easier to read if you watch it full screen.

May you be blessed on this Sunday and throughout the week ahead.

I usually have Sunday off and have had them off since the middle of January. There is a rotation with all the PSE's in OKC to cover the Sunday delivery of Amazon stuff, but I have not had to do it since it was moved out of my local station to the hub station. My manager said there is a PSE that has been volunteering to do it most Sundays.

I understand that GB needs to make money somewhere to keep the site going, so I understand the ads, etc. but it would be nice if they were thinking of all the people who use the site not just the mobile/app people. The points are good for entering the drawing for the gas cards. It is also nice to see that the overall rank gets better as we use the site, especially when thinking about posting gas prices and forum posts to keep in touch. I still check the site for gas prices when I need to fill up, just in case there is a cheaper price in my normal area.

Good Morning rasmataz,
Shorter movie so that should help with your limited time.

About the points here at "PointsBuddy," there are challenges worth 100's that cell phone users can take. :-( Thinking though, if I had a smart phone, I don't think I would do them after what I've read in TBTU. This site has gone way ↓ hill, except for the messaging/visiting feature.

Your Sunday movie is, Heartprints, author unk.

The length is only 1:42 minutes. It will continue for a second play if you leave it alone.

Think to yourself, where will you leave your heartprints today, tomorrow, every day?

Enjoy your Sunday!

TT - not sure what we will be having for dinner tonight, yet. That will get decided tonight.

Off work earlier than usual this morning, I guess there was less mail today. Also, we got a new machine for scanning packages which might be somewhat quicker than the old way. Will go back at 3 PM to close for a couple more hours, total of about 7 hours today.

Found out a couple of days ago that web users can get the extra points for watching videos. It is located under Points & Prizes to the right of the sub categories, called Video Points. Can watch up to 5 videos for 200 points each, was thinking that now I would be able to stay up in the rankings with the smartphone app users. Now GB is adding something again to the app for points that web users don't have. :-(

Good Morning rasmataz,

Today, Wednesday is National Zoo Lovers Day.

The photo above is from the OR zoo.

Three new chicks have joined the Oregon Zoo's Humboldt penguin colony this month. Visitors can look for the young penguins this summer, once the chicks fledge and begin to explore the rugged terrain of the zoo's penguinarium, which simulates the endangered birds' native habitat along the rocky coast of Chile and Peru.

A few zoo facts:

The Vienna Zoo is the oldest existing zoo and was opened to the public in 1765.

The United States first public zoo, Central Park Zoo, opened in 1874 in New York.

There are 350 zoos in the United States

Approximately 175 million people visit a zoo each year.

Happy Zoo Day!

Have you heard about this?
Carowinds officially unveils Fury 325 roller coaster!

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Carowinds held a ribbon cutting ceremony last Wednesday morning for the world's tallest giga coaster Fury 325.

Carowinds ran its first test of the new Fury 325 roller coaster earlier this month.

The 32-passenger train climbing to the top of a 325 foot hill. The hill is followed by an 81 degree first drop and then races through a series of hills, curves and quick transitions while reaching speeds of up to 95 miles per hour. The ride lasts nearly three and one half minutes.

Do you want to ride? The video is 1:40 in length.

Have fun!

Good Morning rasmataz,

Glad to hear that the tornadoes were not close to you. I did hear the other two areas mentioned on TV. In fact, they are still being talked about. So sad that some lives were changed forever.

Thinking, what's important is that the work on the church continues toward completion.

I'm guessing that a number of folks must have smart phones as my ranking on the meaningless 30 day list has increased to 5,000 to 7,000. I don't think it had ever been in the 1,000's before the BIG fiasco.

Signs conclude.

Outside a muffler shop: "No appointment necessary. We hear you coming."

In a veterinarian's waiting room: "Be back in 5 minutes. Sit! Stay!"

In a restaurant window: "Don't stand there and be hungry. Come on in and get fed up."

Happy Friday!

TT - the tornadoes were in Moore and Sand Springs. Moore is a suburb just south of OKC and Sand Springs is close to Tulsa in the NE part of the state.

It is possible that they will be finished by Easter, but not sure about that. We did not have church last night because they were reconnecting the building to the electricity, so our current building was shut off (also because of storm potential according to my pastor when he called).

I wondered about how the smart phone apps getting extra points would effect standings. I don't have a smart phone so don't get the extra points for watching videos there. I do post prices and check for the lowest in the area when I need to fill up, but I read the news articles and try to keep up with friends and acquaintances.

Good Morning rasmataz,

Are you okay...the tornadoes?

Any chance it will be finished by Easter?

If you don't have a smart phone so you can watch their ad videos, that's the direction you will go. I've lost 4 places so far. The worst is folks being awarded points when they are out of videos. I read in TBTU, "take 200 points on us."

Good thing I'm here primarily to visit with friends and acquaintances and not post prices.


Signs continue.

On a taxidermist's window: "We really know our stuff."

In a podiatrist's office: "Time wounds all heels."

At a car dealership: "The best way to get back on your feet - miss a car payment."

Happy Thursday!

TT - thanks for sharing the signs, they are pretty interesting.

The pews are supposed to be going in today, unless something changed. The last of the flooring in other areas and the stage in the sanctuary should be going in soon. They will be doing another coat of paint in all the rooms once all the rest of the work is done. We don't have a date yet, but it should be within a couple of weeks.

See you when I see you. ♪

Good Morning rasmataz,

Signs continue.

In a non-smoking area: "If we see smoke, we will assume you are on fire and take appropriate action."

On a maternity room door: "Push. Push. Push."

At an optometrist's office: "If you don't see what you're looking for, you've come to the right place."

Happy Wednesday!

Good Morning rasmataz,
Nice that your wife could get away with her sister and you had some alone time with the kids.

I did read your post in MT's home. I scan there but don't read since it's all about her and she seldom responds to those who stop.

Your replacement is coming along. When do you anticipate all or almost all will be completed?

Your Sunday movie is entitled God's Beauty by Glenna M. Baugh.

You might want to substitute the word "Spring" for "Summer" as you're reading the text.

Look around you. May you be blessed as you view God's beautiful handiwork.
