Thank you for visiting today. The last few days I have been riding my ebike and taking pictures. Often as I took these pictures I thought of how I would share them with you via this blog. I hope you like them. – David
I suppose every topic has been discussed on blogs. Here is one of my pet peeves – cigarette butts on beaches.
I totally get that sitting and looking at the view is relaxing and enjoyable. Perhaps even more so with a pipe, or cigarette regardless of the signs saying not to do it. If there are no other people around to be exposed to side-smoke then there would be no harm or little.
However, and this the peeve part, why leave all the butts behind? Do they think they are going to magically disappear or compost? I think I read that butts take 15 years to decompose because they are so processed.
Ignore the sign and have a smoke by yourself but pick up after yourself please smokers !
While we continue the battle on plastics, reports indicate that cigarette butts are the single most littered item in the world, surpassing plastics with 2 billion pounds of butts tossed aside annually.https://www.nationalgeographic.com/environment/article/cigarettes-story-of-plastic

It’s like someone who has a bottle of something, don’t leave your garbage or worse broken glass behind.
That’s it – peeve expressed but it won’t change anything. Oy vey.
One TV series I have enjoyed both on TV and on Netflix is Murdock Mysteries. This series along with “Still Standing” are ones I often recommend.
One character from Murdock’s Mysteries inspired today’s word of the day which is ” Bollocks “. – In the right circumstances you would use the term “bollocks” to express: contempt, annoyance or defiance.
Your assignment: Use today’s Word of the Day ! and don’t explain what it means, let them look it up.
It’s a terrible thing, I think, in life to wait until you are ready. I have this feeling now that actually no one is ever ready to do anything. There is almost no such thing as ready. There is only now. And you may as well do it now. Generally speaking, now is as good as time as any.Hugh Laurie
