ANSWER TO THOUGHT FOR THURSDAY AND EARTH-FRIENDLY FRIDAY

Answer to Thought for Thursday: To stop them from stealing pepper, it was used as currency at the time.

Now for EARTH-FRIENDLY FRIDAY: With the high price of gasoline and the recession hitting the economy and all of us pretty hard, why don't we try walking a little more? Rather than going for a Sunday afternoon drive, why don't we all go for a Sunday afternoon walk? It will be good for the heart, health and be Earth-Friendly too. We don't have to do a lot, if we all do a little, we can make a big difference.

And, if you happen to live in Portland, Oregon, you just might be in luck because my hometown is one of the top ten most walkable cities in the country. Check it out here.

Aha! It was spice! I just didn't name one. (Darn it...but then I don't think pepper would have been my first choice.)

I guess I'll be needing my snowshoes afterall ...

Yeah, I figured it was for salt - I had no idea pepper was so important.

Snowshoes?... Rena did it snow again-in March?...

I'm almost there, just south-west of you, on the beautiful Southern Oregon coast where walking and hiking are in our city charter.

Love Portland.

I love to walk and it's a beautiful day here in Portland, Oregon but my sis says it's supposed to snow tomorrow. I hope she's joking.
