They are saying that
gas and food prices are going to rise dramatically over the next few years. It’s funny, because at $1.27 it already feels like gas prices have risen dramatically! I guess we’ll all have to do a little more walking in the future.
Speaking of feet, last night I received a link to Vancouver’s
Mostly Lisa performing a “feet” of agility in front of a Chichen Itza Pyramid in Mexico. This morning a link from Beyond Robson led me to Parkour in Vancouver, which led me to the following video of three people running around town doing things I could only dream of being able to do. It’s well worth the watch…
I hope to see more people participating in Parkour, as it’s entertaining to watch and it looks like it’s really good for the body too!
I learned about this from the
Simplebits RSS feed:
50 Ways to Help the Planet
Great roundup of fifty little things we can all do to help. Part of
Wire & Twine’s The Green Line.
Check it out – most of the changes are indeed pretty simple.
Happy Earth Day!
I was doing a little reading on Wikipedia about Earth Day and it mentions there are two different Earth Days – April 22 and on March equinox – who knew? Learn more about our
Earth Days at Wikipedia.
As I mentioned on
twitter this morning…last night I discovered a cool TV show on National Geographic’s HD channel: Big Ideas for a Small Planet. They were having a marathon of all the episodes to date, I think.
I’m not sure, but it looks like
Big Ideas for a Small Planet was originally aired on Sundance Channel. It was really inspiring to see so many people working to make the world a better, more sustainable place.
Last summer I posted about
William McDonough and his Cradle to Cradle Design ideas, which I think are exactly what we need. If you’ve never heard of McDonough follow the links from this article to a good video about Cradle to Cradle design.
Not quite Palm Springs weather...
All week CBC Radio’s been telling me that we’re going to have a 21 degree sunny Saturday (tomorrow). I can’t wait to feel the sunshine, as it’s been a really LONG winter this year.
I booked a
tee time for tomorrow morning for Bridget and I. I hope to pick up a BBQ tonight so we can have one full summer day in the middle of April.
Don’t let me down weatherman!
