Q: I can not see any of the photos everything is blank except for the front page. Anyone know why?

A: Do you know?

What my husband is doing is a very unusual thing as everybody commented. If he is in the Philippines, he will not be doing anything, he will just wait for his food in the dining table and the wife will do the dishes, cooking, laundry, etc......I'm not sure if this is still true today.

This photo is my husband Ed's ritual every morning. He washes the evening dishes in the morning and I asked him why in the morning(no, I did not asked why he is the one doing the dishes, I won't dare, he might ask me to do it, lol!!). His answer is that since he already run the hot water to wash the dishes, when he takes a shower, the water will already be hot. It saves us from having to run it for quite sometime.I take a shower after him, so my water is just right...This does not only saves us water and electricity, the biggest factor though is I don't have to wash the dishes, I can concentrate on taking photos, lol!!!

ps...I'm telling you, he is a good dish washer, we only use our dish washing machine to store our clean plates...

footnote:this was originally title "Green Tip #2)have to re-edit to fit the theme.

    Oh Litz, see I got the new name already, this is awesome. I was actually going to enter a photo of my husband doing the dishes. Sometimes we actually fight about who's going to do them. He's an auto tech, get's his hands clean. I've been digging in the dirt gets my nails clean. Great entry!
