Green Baby Step - Calculate your Carbon Footprint!

Take just a minute to find out how large your carbon footprint is!  You need to have your electric, water, and gas bills handy because they ask a few questions that only a bill can answer.  When answering, take this into consideration:  if you have a pool heater and never use it, answer "no" to pool heater.  Good luck and let me know your results!   

Happy New Year!

And it's going to be a good one, this 2011, I feel sure.  Something about a new year always brings a fresh view to light.  A clean slate feeling.  We chuck the old calendar (in the recycle, of course), with its cluttered squares, grimy erasings, and sloppy cross-outs, and pin up that unmarked, prestine new replacement.

Maybe this is how the whole New Year's resolution concept came about.  With this new beginning, some of us feel  an overwhelming desire to change something. 

I'm not going to get preachy and tell everyone to get greener this year.  But it would be interesting, wouldn't it?  To have a resolution that bettered something bigger than ourselves? 

Here's to a happy, healthy, (greener) New Year!
