I highly recommend The Patriot Post as a one-stop fill-up for everything you really need to know about national politics. The posts can be long but they are worth your time. This is not exactly a cogent excerpt of what you’ll find there, but it’s a smile to start the week with. It doesn’t sound all that practical in the long run, but I’m tempted.
Though drought ravages much of the country, killing crops, hurting livelihoods and driving up food prices, there is a bright spot for one industry. Many homeowners are turning to lawn care companies that specialize in painting grass. Rather than run sprinklers all the time, these homeowners are going with green paint. “It looks just like a spring lawn, the way it looks after a rain. It’s really gorgeous,” said one retiree, who greened 830 square feet for just $125. Many of the companies that perform the service normally only do it for golf courses and athletic fields, though with the lack of rain, many homeowners are turning to paint, and business is booming. Who says there’s no such thing as a green job?
