Did my Live @
Five a bit early today since I had visitors from out of town and I
promised to take them to the market to get fresh produce for their
travels. I showed them around while sharing information about my project
and challenge to be Zero Waste and Zero Impact. Kim and Tom live in
Truckee California (about 1/2 hour from Reno and Tahoe) and are avid
outdoors people. They are headed for a week of skiing and promised
they will be carbon conscious while in BC. They even rented a teeny
car that barely held all their equipment, skis, helmets, snow gear,
your friends to become 30 Zer0 Zer0 Heroes!
who tracks current events knows that the power is with the people.
We live in the information age and it's not only spreading access
to knowledge but connecting people in significant ways. All over
the Middle East citizens have united to take back the power from
corrupt government. Democracy is a global phenomenon that is catching
on and bringing renewed hopes of change. Obama's election platform
was built on that very strategy.
important to remember that we hold power over our government at
all levels; municipal, provincial and federal. As Canadians we are
blessed with certain undeniable rights. With those rights also comes
a certain amount of responsibility. When we witness injustices or
discover "dirt" on a business, corporation or leader its
up to us to spread that message. Vote, sign petitions, write your
MLA, attend public hearings and speak out! Here's a great lesson
on Advocacy from a recent TED Talk by Ken Cook from the Environmental
Still in Hiroshima
for the kiddie shows and when I woke up and looked in the mirror I
screamed! No amount of tea bags or bird poo could have helped my face
this morning. Even after I showered and did my show makeup, I could
have passed for Keith Richards twin sister. It's no wonder the kids
scream when they first see me!
I hate hotel
beds because I never have a good sleep; I miss my soft, squishy futon!!!
They're so much more practical and CLEANER than beds. A conscientious
Japanese housewife will put all the bedding out every day that is
sunny and sayonara mattress mites and bedding bugs! VOILA!
Okay, break time
is over. One show down and four to go. Ye gods and little fishies!
