To Clean The Air For A Special Celebration (2015)

It’s that time of the year when we are about to enter into the holiday season.

Immediately after the Labor Day weekend, the feeling begins.

.

Decorations come to mind, and instead of spring cleaning, it’s another time

to get cleaned up for those holidays.

.

The pumpkins will begin to come out and all of the holiday scents. We’ll

decorate our yards, in the midst of raking all of those falling leaves.

We’ll begin to make lists. Parties and festivals come to mind. Once it gets

started there is no end until after the New Year.

.

As with every holiday, cleaning is required. No one wants to host a special

event with leftover dust from the summer.

.

Which brings to mind what happened last week. China put on a special event

to highlight their military. A celebration of their victory of WWWIII. The parade

included soldiers and all of their military equipment, that shined in the sun. What

was even more remarkable is the clean air. This is not the norm, for everyday

Beijing.

.

What was even more amazing is what they did to ensure that they had a smog free

day. They cleaned house in a way that is unusual, to say the least. For two weeks they

shut down almost everything.

.

And we are not talking about just major stuff, we are talking about just about everything.

The shops, the factories, and everything else that makes the smog a daily event.

.

Surely after the parade was over, the smog was turned back on again. No regulations is

the normal. Many citizens wear masks, all year long. If only they could be smog free all the

time.

.

“To cleanup for a good reason-

As we enter into the autumn season.”

Three things that one might see on the sidewalk (2007)

Three things that one might see on the sidewalk:
1. Cracks.
2. A penny.
3. No spit.
===================================
In Beijing, the latest talk-
Is folks having better manners, and not spitting on the sidewalk.
