ANSWER(S) TO THOUGHT FOR THURSDAY AND EARTH-FRIENDLY FRIDAY






ANSWER(S) TO THOUGHT FOR THURSDAY: The fastest animal in the world...depends. In the water, it's the dolphin, in the air, it's the falcon, on land, it's the cheetah. So it depends. But you can read all about these amazing animals here.

Here's My Earth-Friendly Friday Post: My sustainability tip "Bike Bound" made it into the Oregonian, which is my local newspaper. It's the second clip on the right-hand side. So Yipee!!! I'm celebrating this one because it's more than a tiny little clip - it's my own little way of adding a little green(ery) to the world. (I had to cut and paste the article, to get it to fit on one page.) If you click on the article, it will enlarge. Hope you can read it. If not, you can see it here, the Oregonian posted an on-line article about the story - my tip is half way down the page.

Nice brief mention in the newspaper, Kim! I loved your column. And I can't help but chuckle at Sasha's transparent attempt to keep you home -- aww!

Nice article! I can't believe your dog ate the seat!
Actually I can...my dog just shredded a chair the other day. Grr.

David: Sasha will eat anything, including metal cans - kinda like a goat.

GG: I knew there was a reason I loved dolphins - 'course I thought it cause they were friendly :)

Adrienne: Soooo sorry - I CAN relate.

Kelly: I need to get in shape - ahhh, it's so much work at my age.

Rena: I love animals - should have been a vet - oh, but wait, there's one part of that job I couldn't do.
