Kite Safety Is Never Out of Date!

In taking stock of some of the obscure collectibles in my back room, I ran across this unexpected image: a model-worthy woman retrieving a kite from power lines (top image at left)!

It led me to think about my friend, Jose Sainz, who for the last decade or so has worked for San Diego Gas and Electric (Sempra Energy) to put all of these wires underground. One of many reasons for doing so is to keep company personnel from having to do the very thing my German friend is shown doing in the bottom image at left.

A quick look at the Sempra Energy website will show you their commitment to public safety. (I picked Sempra to stay with my friend Jose’s company, but looking at your own utilities company will probably lead you to a similar page.)
