Congress Weighs Help To Pay Escalating Household Water Bills – Circle of Blue

Water & Sewer bills have increased significantly over the past few years… and while I applaud Congress getting involved… it cannot be at the expense of water quality. The only thing worse than paying too much for water is paying for water that is undrinkable and unsafe.

Sadly, many members of Congress come from local government… local government is where it all begins. Water utility budget deficits share a direct connection to how much money the the local government has siphoned off for other expenses. The fleecing of America’s infrastructure reserves; pet-projects like new soccer fields or the need to pay for the Police Department Retirement Fund. Until a full investigation is performed as to where all the money has gone… Congress needs to be honest with itself.

Today’s featured article
Marilyn Monroe in 1952
Marilyn Monroe (June 1, 1926 – August 5, 1962) was an American model and actress. One of the most popular sex symbols of the 1950s, she played stereotypically “dumb blonde” characters that were emblematic of the era’s attitudes towards sexuality. She began her career as a pin-up model. After two short-lived film contracts, she was signed by 20th Century-Fox in 1951. The next year, scandalous nude photographs of her were featured in a popular calendar. She became one of the most bankable Hollywood actors with starring roles in comedies such as Gentlemen Prefer Blondes (1953), How to Marry a Millionaire (1953), and The Seven Year Itch (1955). Disappointed in being typecast and underpaid, Monroe formed her own production company in 1955 and successfully fought for a better contract with Fox. She received critical acclaim for her performances in Bus Stop (1956) and Some Like It Hot (1959), winning a Golden Globe for Best Actress for the latter. Her last completed film was the drama The Misfits (1961). Troubled by mental health and addiction problems, Monroe died of a barbiturate overdose in 1962. She continues to be considered a popular culture icon. (Full article…)

“Too Much Heaven”

[CHORUS:]
Nobody gets too much heaven no more
It’s much harder to come by
I’m waiting in line
Nobody gets too much love anymore
It’s as high as a mountain
And harder to climb

Oh you and me girl
Got a lot of love in store
And it flows through you
And it flows through me
And I love you so much more
Then my life..I can see beyond forever
Ev’rything we are will never die
Loving’s such a beautiful thing
Oh you make my world.. a summer day
Are you just a dream to fade away

[Chorus]

You and me girl got a highway to the sky
We can turn away from the night and day
And the tears you had to cry
You’re my life..
I can see a new tomorrow
Ev’rything we are will never die
Loving’s such a beautiful thing
When you are to me, the light above
Made for all to see our precious love

[Chorus]

Love is such a beautiful thing
You make my world a summer day
Are you just a dream to fade away

[Chorus]

Nobody gets too much love anymore
It’s as wide as a river and harder to cross

[Chorus – repeat and fade]
