A Carbon Fast for Lent: Day 17

Day 17 (The Third Monday of Lent, also St. Matthias this year): Only fill your kettle with as much water as you need.

This is another one more suited to the UK; I'm not sure how many Americans regularly use a tea kettle. But it's good advice anyway; watch what you are using as you prepare your food and drink. can you use less water, less gas, less whatever?

I don't drink much tea at all, so I use a tea kettle perhaps once or twice a month. I can't think of any other ideas at the moment. Anyone?

Look upon the heart-felt desires of your humble servants, Almighty God, and stretch forth the right hand of your majesty to be our defense against all our enemies; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.

You don't drink much tea? Whatever is the matter with you?

My attempts to limit our carbon footprint keep being sabotaged by the teenagers. Things left on standby, extractor fans left on all day and heaters all night. Still, they'll have to live with the worst of global warming when I'm long gone as I keep telling them.

How ironic! That's the young for ya.

Ah, the wisdom of the graybeards.

You ARE the young.

Wait until you have graybeards and roundbellies.

I'm still young, huh? I guess I always will be....
