Thursday Threesome for September 4th

Yep, I'm getting to this later than I had planned. But I don't mind. Why not? Because I got to leave work early. See, my boss was giving me a ride to pick up my car after an oil change, and he wanted to leave. So I left. And I'm now on vacation until Wednesday! Yes, life is good.

But you came here to read the Thursday Threesome for the week, brought to us by recyclers and The Back Porch.

Onesome: Greenwaste-- containers: we're using full sized 'toters' (those cans the trunks can automatically dump); are you using anything special in your city? Does anyplace in the US still let you burn leaves in the Autumn?
Promise not to shoot me? We don't even having recycling here in my condo complex. We're supposed to be getting it soon. And when we do, I think it will be just dump everything into a dumpster like we collect the garbage in type of thing. But I guess we'll find out.

Twosome: Disposal-- systems for electronics: out here in CaliLand you just can't 'dump' the old computer or stereo with the trash; they need to go to an 'electronics recycling center'. Do have anything like that where you are?
Seeing as how I am in California, that must be true here. But I'm not sure where I'd take it if I had something to get rid of. (I'm just not coming across as very ecological am I? I'm not this bad. Really!)

Threesome: Facility--, facilitate, faculty, faculties... Do you ever get any of those a little mixed up? Just curious...
Not in the least. And I'm prove it to you.
Facility - To help something along
Facilitate - People who teach, usually at a college or university
Faculty - Mental powers
Faculties - A building or location

What?
