Pools, sprinklers, hoses — there are many ways to use water outdoors in the summertime, and there are also countless and easy ways to conserve it. Check out the following tips for developing good H2O habits:

·       Water your lawn only when necessary; if you leave footprints when you walk across it, it’s time to water (usually once every three days).

·       Minimize evaporation by watering your lawn during the early morning hours, when temperatures are cooler and winds are lighter.

·       Divide your watering cycle into shorter periods to reduce runoff and allow for better absorption.

·       Periodically check your pool for leaks if you have an automatic refilling device.

·       Weed your lawn and garden regularly; weeds compete with other plants for nutrients, light and water.

·       When the kids want to cool off, use the sprinkler in an area where your lawn needs it most.

·       Use sprinklers that throw big drops of water close to the ground.

·       Use a hose nozzle and turn off the water while you wash your car — you’ll save more than 100 gallons.

·       Use a screwdriver as a probe to test soil moisture; if it goes in easily, don’t water.

·       Use a grease pencil to mark the water level of your pool, and check the mark 24 hours later; your pool should
lose no more than 1/4 inch each day.

·       Check your sprinkler system frequently and adjust sprinklers so that only the lawn (not the house, sidewalk or street) is watered.

  1. The downturn during the 1970s was caused primarily by Richard Nixon’s faulty economic policy. Among other things the imposition of widespread wage and price controls caused the extended recession of the 1970s we refer to today as stagflation. Oil prices played a role but it was the governments response that truly put the United States over the edge. Unless the Government takes draconian measures like Nixon did to insulate the economy it doesn’t make sense to compare today’s situation to that of the 1970s.

  2. If I predict recession every year I will get it right eventually.My understanding of economics is that something either goes up or it goes down. There are 50-50 odds to guess right. Some may guess 60% right but will eventually revert back to the mean. Its too bad this is a time when the system has been raped for every nickel and dime for the next few years.
