Does it bother anyone else that the recycle truck comes down your street twice each pick-up day? How green is this?
P.S. Those blue cans will be picked up every week. So get ta curbin.' And since the cans have to be clean how much water will we use to recycle? It's not bad if you are recycling your gray water. It ain't easy being green.

Lake Bistineau State Park
Memorial Day Weekend
Camper spaces all full;
temp 93; humidity 85.
We hook up utilities,
hang a hammock,
turn on the AC.
I choose to sweat
outside in the shade
of kids playing catch;
Randy Travis whining.
You nap in the RV.
Remind me again: How
is this better than
a weekend at home?
Thank you Becky Haigler for creating our first written Picture of the Day. We're always looking for art that is about SB Land. Submit yours and help us record the mythology of Northwest Louisiana.

The meeting Wednesday night is in the church sanctuary. HRA's blog has the scoop. Invite a neighbor. There are plenty of pews in that big ol church. It seats over 500.
Also, you might get on the telly. The BBC is in town doing a story on the Haynesville Shale and they might make it by the meeting.

What are you doing with all your Haynesville Shale money? You should be collecting the art of the local artists. One of the coolest things about living in Houston were all the folks collecting work by artists in that area. And also nifty were the stories the local media did on the collectors and the artists they collected. Here's a recent story about a San Antonio law firm and its collection of affordable art from that area.
This Saturday you have a chance to see some of the funkiest art being produced in our region. It's the third month for the Art-La-Tex Art/Show Market. The name has been evolving but the location is the same. Already this local effort has been covered by Red River Radio and Louisiana Road Trips Magazine.
Grass roots artists' markets like this one started by Ralph Cody can be found all over the world. Melbourne's Rose St. Artists' Market. Austin has a market. In New Orleans you'll find Bywater Art Market.
Saturday August 9 (and every second Saturday of the month)
10 AM – 6 PM
600 Common Street
Free to artists and the public. Artists need to bring their own displays.

...is a video from from Christoball.
Flickr now has a video feature for short films. Make a shorty and let us feature it as a Picture of the Day. We also like short fiction, non fiction, poems or other types of creativeness that tell us about life in SB Land. Can't pay you but you do get a lovely publishing credit to put on the resume.
