What about the plastic ones? Wish we could do something about these containers too.
Plastic is ground up and made into a product resembling wood, it is used on playgrounds and walkways to the beach here.
Someone is making beautiful Adirondack chairs out of it, they're pretty expensive, but they have a lifetime guarantee and are virtually indestructable.

Well my topix family, it's time for another time out and some much needed quality time spent in my hydrotherapy bath, the tranquilizing "chair" and the gyroscope. I think I've overdone it today with the judgits and my sockpuppets. I got overly excited and need to take a breather. These depends are pretty shot too!! Carry on the marathon judgit tourney without me till I return! As usual I will share a couple of my secrets with my topix friends:
As I have revealed, if you want to get an edge in the judgit race, doubling up on the industrial strength depends are a must. And constipating foods are a big help!! I recommend cheese and lots of it!! Multiple IP adresses are a must as well!!!!

It was embarrassing. For the congressman and for the party he represented.

Not many people find that kind of rudeness and incessant ranting productive or helpful to your party.

He came across as an inconsiderate bully. Something most people would be ashamed of. Not humorous.

Except that Phil Gramm is still alive, at last notice.
Scuse me, I assumed that out of office and out of sight meant dead as dyks nuts.

Whatever, he still ranks very high on the list of those "most" responsible for the mortgage-financial crisis while Barney Frank is not even on that list.

When you googled the senator did you see the mention of the list among the first few entries? Some of your butt pals couldn't find it yesterday.

Have you given any thought to why Gramm changed political parties?
