What am I doing here?
I decided to start a blog. Why? I'm not really sure. I enjoy reading Janice Landi's blog, so I thought it might be fun to start one of my own. And I'm not so great at keeping in touch with friends that have moved away, or just plain moved on, so I thought this might be a good way to keep in touch. We'll see how that works out, or how soon I get bored with it!!

Back to Basics: By the Numbers Five: Number of planets we would need if everyone lived like the average North American. If everyone lived like the average European, we’d need three. Unfortunately, we only have one. 500 billion to 1 trillion: Plastic bags used by shoppers each year. This translates to about 150 bags a year for every person on earth. Remember to bring your own! 83 percent: Percentage of Americans who now say global warming is a “serious” problem. This is up from 70 percent in 2004. 941 and 1,023: Pounds of greenhouse gases added each year from one person eating three burgers per week. 2.5 to 1:The ecological footprint of the average American, compared to that of the average Italian.
I'm now managing 2 blogs. On "My Random Thoughts" you'll see just that. Any ol' thing that pops into my head just might show up here. On "My P90X and Body for Life Journal" you can see how Dana and I are doing in our quest to lose weight and be more healthy. I hope you enjoy reading both.
