Recycling is the process of taking a product at the end of its useful life and using all or part of it to make another product. The internationally recognized symbol for recycling includes three arrows moving in a triangle. Each arrow represents a different part of the recycling process, from collection to re-manufacture to resale.

But what does all this have to do with you? Well, recycling is a simple way that you, as a consumer, can help out the environment, create a profitable market for recycled goods and help preserve natural resources from being depleted. So... let's get involved!

Robins "Cool" Bus ... the challenger

Konnys Bus ... the challenged

both busses side by side at the starting line waiting for the green light....

The Race of the Giants!!!!

Who is the Winner???

And the Winner is..... Konny!!!!!!!!!


During the Race I walked around a little to take pictures, when I came by this black Dragster.
I asked the owner if I could take a picture and he answered "yes, of course". Than he asked he "have you ever sat in one?", I said "no" and two seconds later I sat inside the Dragster.
Dragster are really loud... and really really fast....

Link of the week: TreeHuggerBoxes

TreeHuggerBoxes in Dallas, Texas is a relatively new business that focuses of repurposing boxes. They have a great website and business model that provides a unique and green way to buy, sell and repurpose corrugated boxes. They do not have a store front and do all their business via the web - an underutilized concept in business today. TreeHuggerBoxes has a small operating footprint serving the local Dallas area.

PHOEBIE... our newest family member

This is PHOEBIE (Fibie)

We will get her in the middle of April when she will be 6 weeks old.
We are already excited.

Today we found some ducks at Tractor Supply and bought two little yellow ones. They are so cute. They just moved into their temporary home in our house. It is still too cold outside and they will be with us as long as possible. (The picture shows the ducks in the box we got from Tractor Supply... not their new home)

Our new old "Reimann-Mobil"

Last Friday we bought a new project. The new "REIMANN-MOBIL" :-)
We had to drive 5 hours to the South. The inside is empty, so we got it for a good price. And we want to do the interior by ourself anyways.
The bus is a 1975.
Thank you Robin! For finding this bus for us!!!!
