Welcome to 2014! This year will mark the 8th anniversary of The Good Human, started back in May of 2006. Amazing how time goes by without really even noticing. Hope you all had a safe and sane holiday season.

New Years resolutions worth making My friend Beth gives us a reasonable, meaningful list of New Year resolutions. “…this time, I’m going to skip the fluffy stuff like “compost more” and ‘grow your own food.’ You know all of that already.

Have a great weekend everyone.
