Designate A Driver this Prom and Graduation Season

It’s that time of the year again, Prom and graduation – Designated Driver
Make it easy to be the responsible one over this peak party time and equip your students with a cool and effective system to designate a driver. By making the person(s) responsible for this task feel important and appreciated you can almost guarantee a successful season.
You can feel confident that every possible angle has been covered to ensure that a designated driver(s) is available to all with the proper supplies. Make sure that you have your people and congratulate them with a card thanking them for taking on this huge responsibility. It is known that when you apply a title and recognize that person they take more pride in the outcome of the task. Send these cards using matching postage stamps to complete part of a package they can keep as part of their own prom remembrance. Who would not be proud to show their family a special momento. You can supply them with a T-shirt and matching hat down to a mug and keychain. To make it easy for anyone at an event to locate one of these life saving people give them a button or sticker to wear. I have had people supply the actual drivers with buttons and added individuals who were privy to the project were given stickers. The people wearing the stickers may feel more approachable to certain clicks of kids and be able to set up the ride. You can set up any kind of system that is right for your event but always remember that this is an important part of planning the occasion. It might actually be the most important and overlooked part of the plans that need to be made. Please have a wonderful and safe season. Direct link to Designated Driver items.

Why are there no fail safes on US oil rigs ?

I am so mad since this oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico and I can’t figure out why. I am now beginning to think I am actually mad at myself for being so naive. All my life I just figured that the Government had restrictions on the oil wells in this country. Fail safes that would stop the oil from being pumped out of the ground when disaster struck. What else can go wrong? What if there was a major earthquake in the Gulf of Mexico, are we prepared to say too bad and just write off this area of the world? I am beginning to see the world as depicted in science fiction movies about the future. Are there any that show earth as a thriving place? I don’t think so. Unfortunately it seems that we strive to make the imaginations of Sci Fi writers come true and in that case the earth is facing a terrible not to far in the future end.
