Source: NPR , Facebook , 3DVerkstan . “One Way to Help Strapped Hospitals? Print PPE Using 3D Printers” an article written by Hannah Hagemann from NPR should speak to all of us who. It is an article about the human heart and ingenuity working singularly to lend a helping hand. By now we have all heard about the mask and personal protective equipment (PPE) shortages around the nation. We even have officials imploring people to resist buying masks, so that those on our front line in the fight against the COVID-19, doctors and nurses do not have the necessary protection to save our lives. We do not send our men and women in uniform into war with the best equipments in the world and ample supplies. Why is this any different for our care providers? This article showcases how technology helps us provide the rudimentary needs such as protective equipment for hospital staff and spread the word with a few keystrokes. 3D printers have been a very fantastic innovation

Hello, this is our first Poopy Pond blog. But not here. Over at PoopyPond.com . This is PoopyPonds (plural) and we bought this name so others can't, well, poop on our work if you will. Again, Poopy Pond will be blogging on ponds, hydroponics, self-sufficiency, some politics, and also green issues. Nothing too heavy. Just having fun, sharing and learning new ideas. Hope you'll be with us each and every single update!

While I believe the idea certainly has merits, it is not for everyone. Not in the beginning anyway. Plus, there are things that we should do ourselves like walking my own dog (I don't own one). And as for cleaning one's home, I do believe that unless you live in a mansion, you should take time to at least tidy up your place on a regular basis even if you are a high power attorney, doctor, or, you know, me. Let's start at the beginning. I'm not good at cleaning my own house. I do it from time to time when inspired but for years I did not do it on a regular basis. Fast forward to years later and what happened? I now clean my house on a regular basis. Every two weeks or so. What
