The Reluctant Flyer. (I hate flying)

I used to fly to trade-shows for my business.  Now I rarely ever fly.  I will only fly if the drive is more than fours. Why you ask?  Do you really need to ask? The process of flying is no longer fun.  Maybe it was not really fun but at leas tolerable.  The last trade show I made a vacation out of it by traveling with my wife.  I left Phoenix about 6:30 am and made it to Las Vegas in time for lunch.  If I flew I would have to be at the airport by 6:30 am wait for two hours fly to Vegas, retrieve the luggage and find a taxi tot he hotel.   I calculated the travel time was only about 45 minutes longer driving without any of the headaches of flying.  I will fly if I must. I only do so as infrequently as necessary.

Will Recycling Survive?

All towns and cities run some sort of recycling program.  For the last decade recycling programs survived because China was buying and recycling our waste products.  From plastics and metals to paper and cardboard towns and cities broke even or even turned a profit by selling to China.  The party is over as China has stopped buying all but the cleanest waste products at greatly reduced prices.  Prices China paid for used cardboard dropped 85% since January 2019.  The new reality that China is no longer paying high prices for recyclables has lead to many small towns eliminating their recycling programs.  Will recycling survive in its present form? What will towns, cities and states do to reduce plastic and paper wastes?  I will share my ideas in future posts.
