I just feel stimulated all around today. Finally after trying for years (awful that it had to be like that) I got a recycling bin from the City of Bradenton. I always cringed every time I had to throw out an aluminum can or a newspaper. The Swedish recycling is so effective, and it is really instilled in my very fiber: recycle what you can!
So the other day when the city was distributed new garbage cans to be used with their new streamlined automated garbage collection system, I went out to talk to the delivery people. Turned out I hit the jackpot! The guy I talked to was the superintendent for the refuse department of the city, he was out there doing some dirty work himself. I explained my dilemma of having called and asked for a recycling bin for years now. I had one within 12 hours. So that makes me feel a lot better, knowing I can recycle some plastic, metal and paper now.
I have been off work more or less while Sarah was off school, but now I am back with a bang! Today I am working on very varied projects. One is a very boring research about constant proportion portfolio insurance strategies from the Swedish National Economical Institution at Uppsala University. The other is software strings for a "shoot them up " game for the Wii game console. So lots of variety today!
Better get back to work now... Have a great day!
