Previously, this was a blog mostly to harass my poor friends and family with the details of my life. Don't worry-- that will continue. However, I'm also going to use this as a terrible forum for dialogue about green tips and eco-revolutions. Hopefully it will be helpful and entertaining...

Post-christmas recycling

New year, new resolutions... new chance to pretend I'll keep up with blogging!

I just wanted to point out to all my favorite peeps that post-Christmas and into the new year is ALSO a great time to recycle some of your old electronics! Even in crazy places, like Cumberland, where recycling is hard to find, electronics can be donated to thrift stores like Goodwill or Salvo-- or, if they're not really usable anymore, you can recycle them at Best Buy -- check out their site to see just what they can and cannot take. And especially note that *they take old gift cards!!!*

Earth 911 has a ton of other suggestions for what to do with your other outdated possessions!

The cutest organic food!

You've (hopefully) heard of the Dirty Dozen, the 12 fruits and veggies that use the most pesticides, and should, for that reason, be bought organic. That way, it's good for you and good for the Earth! Check out the most adorable cheat sheet here or here. It also includes some of the lowest pesticide foods. So, when buying produce, you can make sure to get the dirty dozen organic, and not worry as much about the low pesticide ones. Cheers!

Still Blogging!

Hey all!
No need to fear-- I haven't slumped completely in the blogging department-- yet. Instead, I've gotten addicted to GENEALOGY. This is Nicki's fault. AND IT IS AWESOME. MANY more updates to come on this front!

In other news, I'm off to my first professional conference, ASLO/NABS, in Santa Fe, NM. Again, many pictures and stories to come :)

Needless to say, life is awesome!
