I know who this band is, they ate at my house and I raised up one of ‘dem boys!…
I wanted to secure a back up source for pure water in the event of a natural disaster. Because I have too much shade at my home for solar panels, I had to lose my place in the reservation line when these go to production. The refund was within the day with no questions asked. This company, although a start up, is the real deal. The product is essentially priceless for peace of mind in wild water times.

Showed up to buy a truck that was not detailed, no biggie, test drove it, put $300 down went to bank to get cash, came right back and was told…ooops NO TITLE! I gave my husband his 30 ounce Yetti to sip on while he rode with Chad to the auction place last Friday afternoon all the way to north Ft Worth! Then they went to the court house in Ft Worth to do a title change and Chad had no identification (business card or letter head) that he was legit to sell for his own company, Penneys. And so after all that hassle NO DEAL! Dude was straight up in giving my husband back his $300 deposit. I emailed Chad the following Tuesday asking him when I could come by and get our Yetti that was left in Chad’s truck. No response, so Friday I called him said I was on my way and he said he left it back at the shop and would be looking for it. I get there, after waiting (having disturbed a worker to go fetch it)…no Yetti.
No vechile detailing
No business card
No Yetti and
Yes wasted time for FOUR DIFFERENT PEOPLE….
Cudos to my husband’s nephew, Bobby Kemp (aka Salutatorian), on his impressive run (literally-he’s a distance runner). Kemp racked up awards including the Governor’s Award and will be attending UT Arlington on scholarship.
We traveled from Texas to Iowa to be present for his graduation. Sadly we will miss his Eagle Scout ceremony, but am recording this tribute and await his move across the street from us in the Old Towne Arlington District.
As a reporter/blogger (and proud Auntee), I saw the value in this story for Arlington Proud residents so allow me to digress with a Myrtle Beach picture from long past of Bobby (in the red t-shirt) one summer with my boys…..
Transparency? Like in how both food related GE/GMO’s and FRACKING have their secret sauces?
Here is the actual 400 page report…https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B-pJR4cGo9ckQ2Nod09ISW55dDA/view?pref=2&pli=1 My take away is:
- GMO crops have not increased the rate of crop yield as anticipated
- “Resistance traits aimed at a broader array of insect pests and diseases in more crops are more likely”
- In glyphosate-addicted/dependant areas, some weeds evolved resistance
- Healthwise, they looked at the existing studies and complained that “The design and analysis of many animal feeding studies were not optimal, but the large number of experimental studies provided reasonable evidence that animals were not harmed by eating food derived from GE crops…….found no substantial evidence that foods from GE crops were less safe than foods from non-GE crops.” BUT they go on to say that Omics technologies need further refinements to correct inefficiencies in (future) unintended changes of GE crops/breeding.
And here are some stills….
