Hopefully with Lakeside Towers getting closer to completion the city of Flower Mound / Murrell Park / Parks & Recreation might step up efforts to curb the growing problem of litter around the lake. An issue that seemingly has worsened over the years with some litter piles so large now it will take a team with back-hoe to clean up some of the dumping.
With million dollar condos overlooking the lake, the last thing new neighbors want to see are trash vistas spattered around the shoreline disrupting an otherwise picturesque view of amazing sunsets.
I’ve experienced the North Shore Mountain Bike trails all around this development area for years and amazed at how much this area has changed. Every couple of weeks I get to see new changes when I stop in to see my friends at The Lodge Barber Shop to my hair cut. There are new shops and stores popping up and this will be a Flower Mound go to location as the retails space fills up and slated restaurants open for business. Keep your eye on Lakeside DFW.

This is an odd post for me, but I’m hoping somebody out there can shed some light on what is happening to produce in the stores more and more often.
My wife and I typically buy our fruits and veggies at Tom Thumb or H-Mart, a local Asian market in Carrollton TX, but we’ve seen the same thing when we buy produce at our local Walmart from time to time. Fruits and veggies look and feel fresh on the outside, but when you bite into them or cut them open the center is rotten. I’m over 40 and I’ve never seen this in my entire life until the last couple of years. (What are we doing to our produce?)
A few nights ago, I stopped into our local Tom Thumb store that I shop frequently, and passed up the fruit section because it looked so bad. When I got to the counter, there was an employee who had brought an onion back. When he cut it open, the center of the onion was filled with a brown liquid almost as if the center was completely rotted out. You’ll never guess what I heard him telling the cashier; “I’m almost 50 years old and I’ve never seen anything like this in my entire life”.
I’m sure someone from a produce company will find this post and hopefully comment. I’m betting it’s because we are now dosing our produce in some cases with low amounts of radiation, but I’d like for someone in the produce industry to comment.
Why are more and more fruits and veggies rotting from the inside out? Look at the apple to the left, it looks great except for the core which is completely rotten.
This weekend I’m going to visit a whole foods store and see if their produce quality is any better. Have you gotten and produce that looks like this? Comment below>>
Donald Trump in his interview with Greta Van Susteren, made a strong case for why neither Democrats or Republicans will be successful in creating new jobs any time soon.
Mr. Trump argued that the US has stopped making things. We are outsourcing manufacturing jobs to China and Mexico in record numbers.
Is it time to repeal NAFTA? North American Free Trade Agreement? Is it time to say no to union control of the last fragments of US manufacturing?
What about the American consumer? Have we not demanded cheaper and cheaper products to quench our thirst for more stuff?
Neither Democrats or Republicans have outlined any significant measures to create new jobs. The fact of the matter is that the jobs that have left US shores for China and Mexico will never come back.
It doesn’t matter whether you call yourself a democrat, republican, or something else…it’s going to take every citizen holding our elected officials accountable for creating and environment that will encourage true job creation.
It’s been over 20 years since the Exxon Valdez oil spill in Alaska which resulted in 10.8 million barrels of oil being spilled into Prince William Sound.* Fast forward to 2010 and BP is pouring an undetermined amount of crude oil into the Gulf of Mexico that could pale the Exxon Valdez disaster.
Here are some questions that readers are free to add to or answer:
With 20 years since the last major US oil spill; what have we learned?
Why haven’t we in 20 years been able to identify specific solutions to prevent oil spills from coming ashore?
How many other foreign oil companies are drilling in US waters vs. US owned and operated oil companies?
How do foreign oil companies drilling in US waters affect the overall price that Americans pay for oil or gas?
Why are foreign oil companies drilling for oil in US waters?
What will happen if it takes 2-3 more months to stop the oil from gushing from the ocean floor?
How many types of Gulf fishing industries will be negatively affected by the BP oil spill?
What will happen if the BP oil spill gets into the Gulf current and works its way around Florida and up the east coast?
Why are we not utilizing every available means to prevent oil from coming ashore?
Are there and species of birds, fish, etc. on the endangered species list in the Gulf area that could be in jeopardy?
When the Exxon Valdez oil spill was finally cleaned up Herring never came back. Are there any fish species that might not recover from the BP oil spill in the Gulf?
What is the potential economic loss to seasonal coastal communities that rely on beach visitors over the summer months?
Do you believe the Obama administration is doing enough to solve the BP oil spill disaster?
Will the Gulf spill be worse than the Exxon Valdez oil spill?
This video was forwarded to me a few days ago. The video demonstrates how dry hay can potentially offer a partial solution to cleaning up the Gulf oil catastrophe. Take a minute to watch how effectively dry hay attaches itself to burnt oil. If you live in Louisiana or the Gulf shoreline share your stories with our visitors. How are you dealing with oil coming ashore locally in your area?
