By increasing the use of renewable fuels such as ethanol and bio-diesel, and providing the Department of Energy with a budget to create more energy efficiency options, agriculture can be the backbone of our energy supply as well.
I don't think Ripley is gay. He appreciates good looks in other men, that's true. But he's married in later books. I'm not saying he's very strong in the sex department. But he makes it in bed with his wife.
I'm not knocking conceptual art; it's another department, but it doesn't move me like painting.
I was the first woman to burn my bra - it took the fire department four days to put it out.
I never think that people die. They just go to department stores.

There's a reason that students don't grade their own papers. There's a reason defendants don't sentence themselves. And there's the reason the State Department doesn't get to investigate itself, determine whether or not it made errors in Benghazi. That is Congress's job.
I always felt that I came up short in the education department, but I've come to the conclusion that we all get an education.
Michael J. Fox

The key, I've found, are essential oils, which come in all kinds of 100% natural scents.
We have to be active about kindness and about peace. I've always fantasized that it would be great if there was a Department of Peace.
John F. Kennedy
