Day Ten - April 10th, 2011

Had big plans to plant my garden today, but it's pouring rain. I should have taken advantage of the dry day yesterday... Hopefully it will clear up later. This week is a busy one with lots of interviews planned. I'll be speaking with some interesting folks and hopefully some will join me for my Live @ 5 webcast. I have a HUGE confession to make... Since I haven't been washing my hair as often, and have been using less shampoo and conditioner, it was a bit stringy yesterday so I thought I would put the curling iron on and flip the ends a bit. Well, I forgot all about the iron and left it plugged in for over half an hour. Then I never even used it since I didn't have time before I rushed out the door. Waste! Can't have been too much but, it was plugged in and hot for about a half hour. I'll have to do something today to offset that wastage. Remember to unplug appliances when they are not being used. Be a Zer0 Her0!

Noon - Gien sent me an email from S Africa with links to shampoo alternatives. I guess my remarks above prompted him to seek a solution for me. Thanks Gien! I'm going to do some research and you will all see the results at 5PM when I broadcast Live @ 5

See you Live @ 5!

Dearest Cousin,

Now on Shinkansen back to Tokyo. Couldn't write anything in the park as it always leaves me emotional and shaken. SORRY! Will try and send something in about ten hours.
