Yesterday I heard a heck of a racket outside. Went to have a look and there was a string of cars going by, all blowing their horn. I think it is the new reality of a birthday party.
The other noise was my neighbors green bin being cleaned. They hook it up to the back of a truck, tip it and power wash it. Talked to the guy. He liked his job. I clean my own bin with my own power washer. Then I put a brown bag inside, so it doesn't really get too dirty. I also have a compose bin in the back yard which takes care of a lot of stuff.
