Hi Mick and thanks for the post!
As for the "Earth Day", I 'm sending you already my compliments and my congratulations (you know why).
In 2005 I participated in an experiment to see how long I could live without using energy. I had the electricity in my apartment turned off and I lived without television, computer, lights, air-contitioning or heat for a year before I had it turned back on. In that period of time I read about 25 books by candle light and I heated my apartment in the winter by using a little gas stove and candles. I stopped driving my car and started riding the metro or my bike. I washed my clothing in the bathroom sink and hung them to dry on my balcony. I bought a little battery operated radio/alarm clock for music (as that was the one thing I COULD NOT live without) and to keep track of the time, and I cut down my garbage output to where I averaged about one full bag of garbage per month. It was quite an eye opener. It taught me that a lot of things that we consider necessities in life are really just luxuries, and life is really not that bad without them, it just takes a little adjustment.

Kisses
