Natasha is in her 16th Week.
I wanted to take a full two weeks to allow everyone who might have thoughts to respond to the environmental impact question (see previous entry, below), so I didn't head for a hilltop this week. So far, it looks like:
The Project Will Continue!
with a few adjustments
a. I will check with the USFWS to make sure I am never planning to bubble in protected habitat.
b. Though it appears environmental impact is almost completely negligible, I have set up a monthly donation to plant-trees.org in the spirit of offsetting (and surpassing on the green side) any negative effects of what I do.
c. Again, though the impact is probably negligible, the most likely location for any ill-effects is right around the buckets where the most drips fall, so I will set up absorbent material there and, whenever possible, rinse the area with water just before I go.
d. I will add environmental impact Q&A to the info card I hand out to folks with questions.
e. As I continue to learn more, I will alter my activities accordingly!
This week I rung in the New Year bubbling in Lakeside Park, my favorite bubble spot, by the bandstand (here's what you can do there in the wee hours of the morning: 'mike's best bubble video') and I put together an absurdly long (but lovely) video because it was so nice to have a camera person! Thanks Tontra!
If you want to know when you can catch up with the bubbles in person, send me a note!
Come out and play!
