Spring Water Saving Tips

Be mindful of your water usage when planting new trees and shrubs.

Avoid over-watering by utilizing a slow drip irrigation system.

Mix mulch with your soil to reduce evaporation, promote plant growth and control weeds.

Remove as many weeds as you can; they compete with other plants for your water.

Use a moisture meter to see if plants need water; most plants can die from overwatering.

Avoid evaporation by watering late at night or early in the morning when temperatures are at their lowest.

Install a Weather Based Irrigation Controller which monitors changing weather conditions to prevent unnecessary watering. Check for rebates from your local water agencies.

Minimize overspray by adjusting your sprinklers; often a simple adjustment to your irrigation heads can reduce or eliminate overspray.

Mr & Mrs Webb and America is waiting for your work.Mr & Mrs Webb and America is waiting for your work.

Dear America,
I would like you to amend the scenario that I had sent to you as follows, and proceed to jointly create your work with Mr & Mrs Webb.

1) Recreate the Scenario 1 through 5 to that of memoir by Mr & Mrs Webb. For example, in a case where Mrs Webb overlaps her past experience as a boat people to the news of refugees in the Middle East.
Mrs Webb : "Honey, what is going to happen to them? Can't we Americans do anything to help?"
Mr Webb : "Americans have bad memories in the war against Vietnam."
Mr Webb reflects back on his own memory when he was serving in a war against Vietnam. ( this connects to brief history of Vietnam War described in Scenario 6)

2) Please insert Mao Zedong's testimony along with the narration to Scenario 48.
Narrator : "Mao Zedong who is the Chairman of Chinese Communist Party is making testimony concerning the world of fear to the foreign reporter."
Mao Zedong : "...I can hear those crowds again...communists are so fearful people."

3) Boy described in Scenario 101 is to be the 2nd generation of the boat people.

4) Please insert the following Scenario after Scenario 101.
A) Mr Webb gazing at the boys playing baseball in the distance. Camera closing in on Mr Webb and then the camera catches the guest who was guided by Mrs Webb. The guest looks at Mr Webb. The guest follows Mr Webb's eyes. Camera moves to catch the picture of Mr & Mrs Webb and the guest and then the boys playing baseball in the distance and the audience. They are all Americans that is Whites, Hispanics, Asians, Blacks, Islams, Mexicans, etc.
B) The picture of the guest which is you and your comments will be enlarged onto the screen.

Mr & Mrs Webb and America is waiting for your work.
