This was last month, but still memorable as tomorrow is the day of THE VOTE. We shall see. But this was my first ever political rally. And it was with a man who may make history tomorrow. Beto O’Rourke – … Continue reading →
“The Corn Maze” sounds like the title to a mystery novel or to a horror story. Luckily, this particular maze was nothing but fun, friendship, and just a little bit of frustration. It was also the telling story of how … Continue reading →
So as I already posted in our Climate Steps Facebook Discussion Group (www.fb.com/groups/ClimateSteps) – I have discovered one of the most fun ways to fight climate change – throw a climate party. My friends Max, Nick, and I did, and it was a total success. We invited friends, and then we put an invite up on the neighborhood listserve. We had at least 32 people show up – including six who came due to the list serve. But then we also had a killer invitation:
My friend Max and I are finally fulfilling our New Year’s resolution: to throw a vegan/vegetarian (more vegan) potluck at my place. I’ve been vegetarian now for 25 years, and Max has been a vegan for eight, so this potluck is to celebrate and share the great, great recipes we’ve been tasting.

(Message: don’t do it.)
c) plus traveled to Kuwait, (note that picture above., aaaahhh.), and
d) did some other things here and there.
I’ll be growing the Climate Steps community a lot this year. Already we have some national/international members, but more members are welcomed – definitely the earth needs folks who want to take climate steps.
Anyway, brief post, but fyi! Hope everyone has a grand 2018.
