Happy Earth Day

A quote for Earth Day:

"... do something. Pay your rent for the privilege of living on this beautiful, blue-green, living Earth."

--Dave Foreman

I try to save natural resources as much as I can. I wash my clothes in cold water all the time (with the exception of towels and sheets), I recycle paper, bottles, glass and cans, I reuse paper from other purposes for note paper at work, I use chemicals as little as possible in the garden and try to raise my vegetables organically. I could do better with walking more places, but these days, a trip to the grocery store is a major hike or bike ride away from your house. It annoys me when I am driving down the road and see someone open their car window and throw garbage out of it. I have seen this happen on my street by the factory workers going to work. It's really irritating, especially since I come from an era when there were anti-littering commercials on the TV (remember Woodsy Owl with his "Give a hoot, don't pollute" song?). I am now climbing down from my soapbox.

My yard is celebrating today as well:

Have a Happy Earth Day and please do what you can!
