LED lights have come a long way recently,

I put two and three watt LED's in my house inside and filled the outside fixtures with 6&8 watt LED's. The energy reduction for our house is at about 400 kWh per month. My wife and I were astounded, so doing… Continue

Tales of a roadside garbage picker

There is a one mile stretch of very country road that I have adopted and clean up. It all started with a community group that wanted to clean up a couple hundred acres of forest that was being used as a dumping ground. It is a good walk and gives me time to think about stuff like garbage. What is thrown from car windows is a very interesting commentary on people. This is a very isolated stretch of road and one mile long. IF you are wondering where it is, just look at the sides of the road when… Continue

Hang em' and Hang them with Pride

I was going to title it hang em' and hang them high... but that didn't seem appropriate. Good grief NHAs get in the loop and re-look over, re-do your covenants. We haven't had any problems with hanging out laundry, yet, but we live in a part of town that is less restrictive, except for the old ladies(old thinking) running the NA do patrol, and do not like our "weeeeds"(actually wildflowers and other native plantings that screen our hanging laundry)
