ALEXANDRIA, Virginia (The Adobo Chronicles® ) – Federal agents and bomb-sniffing dogs were dispatched to the office of Dr. Ben Carson in Alexandria, Virginia, shortly after the Republican candidate for president received a suspicious mail package.
The package consisted of a Manila envelope that seemed to contain a small metal device. Carson’s staff suspected the device to be an explosive.
The package was taken to a nearby football field to be destroyed.
Well, it turns out that the package came from the office of California Governor Jerry Brown.
Brown confirmed that he sent the package consisting of a letter to Carson, along with a flash drive containing reports and information on climate change.
Carson was in California recently where he made statements denying that climate change was man-made.
No charges will be filed against the governor, since no one was injured. Brown, however volunteered to reimburse the Federal government for the cost of sending the agents and dogs to Carson’s office.
SAN JOSE, California (The Adobo Chronicles) – It is estimated that the average person uses 80-100 gallons of water per day. More than 50% of that usage – 57.25 gallons to be exact — are used on four major daily routines – brushing teeth, taking a shower, flushing the toilet and drinking water.
Yesterday, California Governor Jerry Brown announced mandatory water conservation to help deal with the state’s worsening drought. Specifically, he wants every Californian to cut down on water use by 25%.
As a public service, The Adobo Chronicles, came up with these specific water-saving tips for every Californian in order to meet the 25% figure:
Brush your teeth just once a day – saves 3.6 gallons
Reduce toilet use from six to two times a day – saves 6.4 gallons
Reduce shower time from 9 minutes to 3 minutes per day – saves 14.50 gallons
Drink beer instead of water – saves 0.50 gallons
There you go — that’s 25 gallons right there!
And if you’re feeling generous about wanting to conserve more water, wash your dishes once every 3 to 4 times of use.
We welcome our readers’ thoughts and suggestions on other innovative ways to help California save on this most precious commodity. (Please use our comment section)
ECHO LAKE, Calif. – California Gov. Jerry Brown ordered officials Wednesday to impose statewide mandatory water restrictions for the first time in history as surveyors found the lowest snow level in the Sierra Nevada snowpack in 65 years of record-keeping.
The problem is, no one in California believes him.
Brown chose the wrong day to issue the order : April Fools’ Day.
For many Californians, the news about Brown’s order was as believable as the news of Mike Pence resigning as governor of Indiana today.
Perhaps Brown’s communications manager needs to be written up.
