Married on Mars

Being married and living on Mars may not be such a bad idea if you want to get away from the crowds but it could be a bit of a challenge for the nerves….. Don’t you think???

So it is said that there is someone out there looking for a happy couple that can get along with each other for a long time in a confined space…. How long is long and what is a confined space?????

I am not sure if I would do something like that. To be honest I have a good relationship with my guy but being cooped-up with him in a small space for a long time could change my view of him and maybe what he thinks of me too. That I can be sure of!!!
No more days out with friends and family or going to the office… A good point but then again the office isn’t that bad either.

Ok, I can see it now my guy and me have signed –up and are the couple… we are ecstatic; at least in the beginning because everything is new and seems great and then like everything is ( sounds sooo demoting) everyday life hits. Who is going to clean – not me! I could see this as an extended vacation… But as experience has it; my guy wouldn’t win the “Housekeeper of the year award”, so I’m back where I started from on earth….. I’m disappointed and haven’t even left home yet!!

Though the dehydrated meals are easy to prepare and my guy can do the job!! And I know there won’t be any burnt meals… the wonders of science!! Life at its finest… But to be honest that sort of food is disgusting, and there are no fresh fruits or veggies. Plus, what about a good glass of wine with the meal???
No problem, just whip out the plastic pack of wine and there you go .. your romantic meal for two while floating in space. I think candles could be pushing it a bit and may cause a fire, so I guess you have them on a screen, so to give you a feeling of a romantic dinner while trying not to lose your meal.

Somehow just writing that bit I am starting to feel that life would be a bit boring and sooner or later I am 100% sure you would get on each other’s nerves and then what??????? There’s probably some rest stop on the way where you can stop off for a coffee and stretch your legs… isn’t there??? You know; remember the cartoon program( mature readers will remember this) the family that lived in Space, well maybe it would be like that and you just jet around town meet friends and so on. So you are only confined with your guy or gal for a short period of time.

Because if not and things don’t go as planned …. Is there the outer space divorce kit??? Just pull off at the next planet for a consultation and we can help you for only $1999.99 without the planetary sales tax.

But on the other hand, we could have a great time together and explore the solar system and get to know each other again and enjoy the journey and stop off at a local plant to check out what is going on there and see what the locals are up too, and maybe they would invite us in for a coffee and a chat…. Also not a bad idea?????
Plus, I am sure there is the shopping mall planet where I hopefully can get some good bargains on shoes and handbags, so I’ll put this on my list of places to visit while we are out there.

My guy will surely want to pop by the car dealer’s planet to check out the latest models and maybe pick-up a deal….. Is the space craft big enough for all our stuff that we buy along the way???

One thing is for sure…. I would bring my camera along to take some picture for the family photo album and so when I got back I could have a good’ol look at my pictures with my friends and be the envy of the neighborhood.

So the lucky couple out there who is planning this journey; please don’t forget us and send a postcard… You know our address!

World Earth Day April 22, 2012

World Earth Day is a day to make you aware of what is happening to the earth.

This is a good idea but why only on this day?

People should think about the environment everyday and not just for a couple of hours on a specific day. If people practiced saving energy and natural recourses and thought about how much water, gas, energy or other things that they use throughout their day we wouldn’t need to be reminded once a year that the earth’s resources are slowly but defiantly dwindling away.

Society seems to have gotten so greedy that they only think about themselves and what they need and not on the next generations to come and will there be anything left for those generations too?

There are so many ways a household can make their mark on the environment but are they willing to and do they maybe want to do without? This I doubt very much and so there you go the problem with the environment.

I myself can see the changes in the world around me that are caused from waste. Look at the oceans with all the plastic floating around in it and this being ingested by fish or they get tangled up in it and die. But as many think -> who cares; out of sight out of mind!

Or why does everyone have to own so many cars and then they all wonder -> why is there a gas shortage and prices are rising. Really now folks get real!

Or do you really need to watch TV 24/7 because the television set consumes a lot of energy and you have to pay for the electricity too. Maybe, ever thought of a TV free day or reading a book that could stimulate the mind as an alternative.

Another one is what ever happened to the good’ol clothes line where you hung your clothes out to dry and the wind and the sun dried them and they smelled good too and all that without the need of an electric dryer. The wonders of nature can be fascinating!!

There are thousands of ways that people can help out and still enjoy life. It is just a matter of starting to change your life style and not always procrastinate and say that I’ll start that tomorrow because you know as well as I do “Tomorrow never comes”

Think about what you can do and maybe you will feel better about yourself by doing your bit for the earth!
