🍄🍄🍄I bought mushrooms from the store last week. Not only are they packaged in plastic, they taste like STYROFOAM. They better have mushrooms at the farmers market tomorrow!🍄🍄🍄

Another day, another advertisement in my mailbox📬 for cable TV and home internet.💻📺🔌 Only $100 a month it proclaim. 💰💰💰💰💰💰In the words of their advertising, our monopoly business is so cheap and wonderful! But rarely do I have $100 unspent in my budget each month.💵 I don’t want to piss the remaining money away.💦

Even if I wasn’t poor, a made a million dollars a year, I doubt I could ever afford to own a TV or have Internet at home. It’s just too expensive.💲💲💲 I had an HDTV tuner for two years which broke after a while. I hated watching television, except for PBS Newshour and lately all that show became was an hour of advocating for gun control and hatred of the president. 🔇

Rather than make an awful multinational utility monopoly richer, I’d much rather give my $100 a month to something worthwhile like a charitable organization like a land conservancy or a conservation group.🌳🌻🐞

It was nice getting that thank you call today from the Hudson Mohawk Land Conservancy🌲 for my Christmas donation🎄 to them in the behalf of my parents. I just hate material stuff and traditional Christmas gift giving. 🎁Much rather just donate to charity, especially a good local charity.

What would you do with $1.5M? CNY man buys waterfalls, donates them to be parks

"For years, Manlius resident Harold Jones admired the staggering beauty of the two-tiered waterfalls at Delphi Falls in Madison County."

"When Jones saw the 60-acre property off Cardner Road - which includes the waterfalls, land and a home on the property - were for sale, he was instantly intrigued."

"I just couldn't resist,'' said Jones, 77, a retired Syracuse University Spanish professor. "They have to be the most beautiful waterfalls I have ever seen."

"Jones said he worried the waterfall, land and home on the property might get sold to another private individual. He wanted the chance to turn it into a public nature preserve so that everyone could enjoy the area, he said."
