Keep Laredo Clean

Guess what I'm doing this afternoon.  I'll be selling autographs at a xeriscaping presentation.  Actually, that's not entirely true.  I will be at Scholars Caffee but I'll just be absorbing the ins and outs of drought tolerant garden design.

I know a thing or two about plants that thrive in our area code, so I hope this gathering teaches me something new.

Sticking with the environment, Bordertown Blues has fully embraced the local abandoned tire culture, and has encouraged us to do the same.  I can look away for so long, but after a while the tires bug me so much that I literally take in the discarded llantas to the landfill collection station myself.  As a matter of fact, I may make a trip out there this weekend.   

El Lider Informativo reports that Nuevo Laredo has a problem with people dumping televisions, computers, and microwaves on public property.  In our barrios I've seen the occassional t.v. but it's a good thing that the situation hasn't gotten totally out of hand. 

Keep it clean out there, people.
