I see snow! On the very top of the Rockies, we had snowfall the other night – winter is almost here! Good thing I am leaving in a few days, huh? I didn’t like the snow as a kid, and I don’t really like it as an adult. On to the Reads…

Kids love making stuff – that’s pretty much a given – and they tend to be drawn toward nature, so why not put that passion to work on a project that’s truly for the birds: a milk carton bird feeder?

In partnership with organizations and individuals across the globe, Ocean Conservancy’s International Coastal Cleanup engages people to remove trash and debris from the world’s beaches and waterways, identify the sources of debris, and change the behaviors that cause marine debris in the first place. Join us this September 25: Sign up for a Cleanup near you and get involved today!

Anger is sweeping America. True, this white-hot rage is a minority phenomenon, not something that characterizes most of our fellow citizens. But the angry minority is angry indeed, consisting of people who feel that things to which they are entitled are being taken away. And they’re out for revenge.

I just love a DIY urban beautification project! Whether we’re talking about Kintta’s yarn graffiti or using seedbombs to spread greenery to blighted spaces, I’m struck by how much a little color can impact the urban landscape. Moss graffiti definitely falls under this umbrella.

Have a good weekend everyone.
