FINALLY!!! Sorry for the inexcusable delay…Updates include minor additions/changes to the menu: added a few more varieties to cookies, scones, and cupcakes as well as a few pictures here and there. Also, be sure to head on over to the music section; there’s a new playlist: “The Island“. Summer’s already makin’ its way in, might as well start gettin’ in the moood. Oh and there’s a new Baked. artist: the sexy Seu Jorge do Brasil. Ele e um gostosão. YUM.
Stay tuned for more updates!
Did you know that San Jose ‘s Water Pollution Control Plant is one of the largest and most advanced in the country? I shore didn’t, which is why I’m attending the Plant Master Plan Workshop on Saturday, May 16th.
The Story: The plant receives, processes, and treats the wastewater from residents and businesses in San Jose, Santa Clara, Saratoga, Cupertino, Los Gatos, Monte Sereno, Milpitas, and a few other neighboring cities. Wastewater that comes from doing laundry, flushing the toilet, doing the dishes, and taking a shower go to this treatment plant.
The Issue: Now more than 50 years old, its infrastructure is aging and needs to be addressed. If you are interested, you can still sign up by this Wednesday for the free workshop or you can always go on a bus tour of the plant (which goes from May to November). Not only will this be extremely informative about the facility and its processes themselves, I guarantee you’ll go away being more environmentally aware of things you’ve never thought of before. Warning: it may smell a little gross when you first get there…but then (according to a very credible source) you get used to it 🙂 Hope to see you there! (thinking of bringing Baked. cookies, though not sure how that’ll pan out w/ the smells haha)
UPDATE: When I was there it actually didn’t smell at all, only at one particular spot we stopped very briefly at. You’re actually on a very nice tour bus the whole time and even when walking around the parking lot, I didn’t notice anything foul.
