    Reading about Firewise strategy, I was pleased to find that many of the plants around my home are fire-resistant. https://www.dnr.wa.gov/publications/rp_fire_resistantplants_in_nw.pdf?dh2fnb

    I heard on the radio today that Mexico City is moving to ban plastic bags, balloons and utensils. That's one of the biggest cities in the world showing progress!

    There's a box of empty photo albums in the trunk of my car waiting to be delivered to the thrift store. My sister and I walked down memory lane together, removing the important old photos for scanning and designating the others for trash. Too bad photos can't go in the recycle bin.
