Falling Behind

So I'm slipping behind on all my blog projects, a fact exacerbated by having left my camera at Drumlin Farm yesterday. I'm not going to let it torture me, and I have a half-dozen or so "more urban species" posts backed up from my UK trip. Perhaps being without the convenient crutch of using pictures I will write more.

Compact fluorescents

From an article in my town's local paper, about hazardous waste disposal:

· Compact fluorescent lights should be put back in original packaging for storage, or taken to Home Depot or Whole Foods supermarket for recycling.

Back in the original packaging? I was supposed to keep that? That was like five years ago, isn't that the point? "For storage?" For how long? Until the apocalypse and I can use them for fuel/weapons?
