Saving the world, one errand at a time.

Yesterday was a busy day of preserving the environment.

In the morning I supervised the monthly water testing program here at the lake. It's all part of the NH DES's Volunteer Lake Assessment Program.

Next, Scott, my brother who likes heavy metal rock, and I drove the samples to the DES Lab in Concord. We collect 23 samples from 9 different locations. These samples are delivered to the lab in varying sized plastic bottles. The Lab turns the contents of the bottles into numbers on paper that become part of an annual report each year.

After dropping off the water, we visited the local Borders Book and Music store, where we scored a copy of the highly anticipated new Velvet Revolver album.

Lunch at Wendy's. I don't know if it's just since Dave died, but the service at Wendy's just keeps getting worse and worse. Too bad.

Last evening was the first meeting of the new Nottingham Board of Selectmen's Pawtuckaway Lake Advisory Committee. The Board has realized that it's time to take some action to head off a looming Cyanobacteria problem here in the lake. I've been asked to serve on this committee to investigate and evaluate the problem and possible solutions.
