-- Quote of the Day --

“…It is so hard when what you do for fun is also what you have the privilege and honor to do with your career. …It is because of that day off thing – that mind rest. …you will come back better, you will be refreshed, etc. If I don’t I will not write well. These are the things that are within our power to manage. …There has been hard scientific research on the power of mirth – to laugh. …The reality is we have more things to do than we have time to do it. The only thing we do have control over is our energy. …Take the time to do the things that give you the energy to do the things you want to do. …The universe has nothing but good intentions for you, so why not have good intentions for yourself? …It is ok to need helpers; helpers are great - don’t let them become crutches, but… ask for help, it will be okay. …Just as addictive patterns feed themselves, so do healthy patterns – it is the change that is the challenge. …States of being like joy, love – those are feelings, those are ours to choose …and when we are not feeling that way we have the power… to look at the choices we made and claim our part in them, because if we don’t then we buy into that victim thing…”
~ Linda Thompson - April 21, ’09

This quote was taken from an interview with Linda that aired on the Conscious Discussions talk radio show in April - Linda and I focused our discussion on how to Be Your Own Dragon. Simply follow the hyperlinks here or the link on the right of this blog, to find this interview.

According to Battery Council International (www.batterycouncil.org) lead-acid batteries (most commonly found in the application of car, cellphone stations, emergency room equipment batteries) are the most recycled consumer product in the world.

At over 97 percent, the recycling rate of spent lead-acid batteries beats aluminum cans (55 percent), newspapers (45 percent) and glass bottles (26 percent) by significant margins. …over 100 million automotive batteries sold in the U.S. and Canada…

Over 1.6 million tonnes of lead are consumed in North America for use in the battery industry alone.
