Just found out that Best Buy recycles just about everything electronic and computer related! Just as I am cleaning out my closets of old computers and peripherals. :-)
Best Buy does not accept alkaline batteries for disposal. Customers should call 1-800-RECYCLING or visit www.1800recycling.com to find alkaline battery recycling centers in their neighborhoods.

I have finally started working on creating my first child theme based on the WordPress Twenty Thirteen theme.
I am going to try and find some time work with this the Twenty Twelve theme. Trying to learn about child themes and how they work.
The Voyager 1 probe, a relic of the beginning of the Space Age, is still alive and kicking, and due to make history any day now. It’s hard to tell exactly where the edge of the solar system lies, but scientists say Voyager 1 is measuring clues that suggest it’s close.

Found this receipt for Beef Spare Ribs. Combined Sloppy Joe mix and Onion Soup mix as a rub. Then slow grilled them for 2 hours on the gas grill using indirect heat. I have never tried cooking Beef Spare Ribs before. They turned out quite nicely. The flavor was nice and meat was tender. Though I think next time I will use a different rub and try it again on the smoker.

This is a great time of year. It will be cooler and a possibility of rain is always an exciting addition to just about any racing!
Just ran across this article in the Austin-American Statesman. Just another fine example of why I like to live in Austin, Texas.
The Austin-Round Rock region was ranked as being the fourth safest city in the U.S., Farmers Group Inc.. The insurance carrier’s seventh annual “Most Secure U.S. Places to Live” ranks cities according to crime, weather, risk of natural disasters, housing depreciation, foreclosures, air quality, terrorist threats, environmental hazards, life expectancy and job loss statistics.

For those of us who support Formula 1 racing coming to Austin, this is just one more step towards an amazing few days coming in 2012!
From Austin-American Statesman:
Travis County Commissioners voted Tuesday afternoon to grant a permitting variance that will likely allow promoters of the proposed Formula One racetrack to begin grading work on the site southeast of Austin, perhaps as soon as the end of the year.
Today’s vote, which passed 4 to 1 at the recommendation of county planners, allows track developers to proceed before the county receives FEMA’s so-called Conditional Letter of Map Revision.
My thanks to those that voted in favor of this and for seeing the incredible value and recognition Formula 1 will bring to Austin
, I urge you to approve item #9 on the December 14 agenda regarding a flood plain variance at theUnited States Grand Prix site. County staff has recommended approval of this request, and your support will allow this beneficial project to continue moving forward.
Dear Friends of Formula 1,
Please take a moment to email and/or call the Travis County Commissioners to show your support for the United States Formula 1 Grand Prix project in Austin Texas. The county will hold a meeting on December 14, 2010 to vote on 2 specific requests to move the project forward. Every email and phone call counts, so spread the word as far and wide as possible.
Your support is greatly appreciated,
