Saturday Rambling

I think I am gonna start putting a quote on my blog when I blog- see below- so I am not JUST rambling-LOL So look for it and tell me what you think- or you can just comment on the quote

I used to dread getting older because I thought I would not be able to do all the things I wanted to do, but now that I am older I find that I don't want to do them.
Nancy Astor (1879 - 1964), interview, 1959

One reason I chose green for the template was it is a constant reminder to me and also the readers, to think more green. We have but one Earth and I personnaly want it around for my children & grandchildren! Without the effects of our constantly trying to kill it! and might I say ourselves! just think of all the diseases our society have inflicted upon ourselves!

And talking about green- you should see the NEW composter my daughter and her dad have built! It's a 55 gallon BLUE drum on a wooden pedistill. WOOWEE! However it has been working well so far- we have actually been taking the compostable materials out into it and the youngest grandchild loves turning it. It is quite a site when you look out into the backyard, but she has found a great spot for it-out of the way sorta.

Found another interesting site besides its they have ways/instructions to make things in a green friendly way. when looking it over today found a handbag/wallet made from an padded old bra- don't think I will be making any of those it would have to be a shoulder bag-LOL and I don't want my undergarments on my shoulder- its bad enough to have to wear them in the first place! Actually there were some very interesting instructions for using old things- like making buttons from old metal buttons, making glasses from wine bottles, making solar panels, refilling MONTBLANC pens & ad infinitem!

And speaking of green we made "dirt" for the kids this week- wow did they like it. It's a dessert called dirt- made with chocolate pudding, oreos, whipped cream & gummi worms. I have had it made in a children's bucket & shovel to serve, with silk flowers for adornment at parties- great tasting simple dessert to make!

I think you are going to like the next M Night Shymalan movie, The Happenning. Going green is a subplot.

When I was reading your post, the word composter registered in my head as computer. Then I'm reading how they made the computer and I'm thinking, What?

Since I'm a total tree hugger, we have been green as we can be for a long time.
