Pepco Providing 3,000 Free Trees to Maryland and DC Customers

 

From Bob Hainey: In its second year as an Arbor Day Foundation partner, Pepco is providing 3,000 free trees to customers in Maryland and the District of Columbia through the Energy-Saving Trees program. One thousand trees will be available for each Pepco jurisdiction in the District of Columbia, and Prince George’s and Montgomery counties in Maryland. Launched as a pilot initiative in 2011, the Energy-Saving Trees program conserves energy and reduces household electricity bills through strategic tree planting.

Pepco customers can reserve their free trees today at arborday.org/pepcotrees.

Is Social Networking Social Suicide?

Is Social Networking Social Suicide?

Social networking has been and still is a big part of our lives. For some of us, it's our whole lives.

But, it can ruin your life before the blink of an eye and put you to shame. I’ve always said that Facebook should come with a sign that says: “handle with care.” Every time I tell someone that, I get the same reaction: the silent smile, the nod and shaking of the head at the same time. How tragic.

Facebook was invented in 2004 and has 845 million active users with different opinions, different personalities from different locations. That’s what makes it so fun, so mysterious and makes it so easy to find friends that you didn’t even know you had.

Who needs them? Nobody knows, but what we do know is that 5000 friends on Facebook makes you cool. How tragic.
