Combining trips

We live in what I guess you could call the suburbs. It’s really a small to mid-size town, and it is not really equipped for walkers, bikers or public transportation.

Seeing green

I’m sorry I’ve not been regularly posting recently. We’ve added a family member, and the transition from two to three kids was rougher than I thought it would be.

New place to e-cycle!

It’s always a pain when you have to recycle an old computer battery, cell phone or another gadget, because it can be hard to find a place to recycle them correctly and (if you’re like me) for free. Now there’s a new option — Staples!

Green ways to alleviate allergies

It’s allergy season. At least it is in our neck of the woods. My allergies are pretty much year round, but they get worse at the start of Spring and Fall. Here are some things I do to cut down on my allergic reactions.
