Every Day Is Earth Day


While today is designated Earth day, every day should be Earth Day. The Earth is our home and we need to take care of it at least as well as we clean our houses.

Tuesday is the day Starbucks rolls out a Pick of the Week, a free download from iTunes. Last Tuesday, I went to a local Starbucks and asked for the card so I could get the download (Counting Crows) and after some confusion and disgust on the baristas part, told they must be out. Sunday, in a not so local Starbucks, the cards were placed on the same rack as CDs and I snagged a card and the song downloaded just fine. I should mention, too, that these same people who claimed ignorance and said they were out.... also somehow managed to hear NON FAT as TOFFEE NUT. Last time I will go to that Starbucks even if I did use the drive-thru. 

As today is Earth Day, if you go to Starbucks, why not bring your own travel mug and save a tree.

I love Starbucks, but I do have to say, they are not consistent. Overall, most are wonderful, but there are a few, I avoid, due to crappy service and the drinks don't come out so good. I am sorry you had that experience, it can totally ruin a day (at least it can for me!) I hate rude people. Glad you got your download card.

I love what you said about the earth, and could not agree more! Happy Earth Day to you. Keep taking your beautiful photos of the the gifts the earth brings us. It always makes me smile!
