Re: Earth Day


I had a fun Earth Day at work. I was asked to give a talk on making organic compost -- probably because I am one of the few people who don't mind speaking extemporaneously, at least when the subject is something with which I am familiar. :o) Anyway, it turned out to be a lot of fun, and the six people who had signed up for it (I had no idea it had been advertised in the H-D flyer) said they learned a lot.

I spent Earth Day wandering around the Morton Arboretum in Chicago's
western suburbs. Beautiful sunny day. Not many woodies had leafed
out, but the earliest spring ephemerals were in full bloom.

needing to do that anyway and it seems as fitting an occasion as

personally like your cutting torch idea Jim - LOL.

So... who's going to celebrate Earth Day? And how? Seems to me, I
should do something, but I don't know what. It's not exactly the kind
of event where you just light a candle then head for the nearest tap
room. At a minimum, it seems to require some sort of oath taking or
resolution making or symbolic action [something short of taking a
cutting torch to a neighbor's Hummer]. Maybe I should just plant
another tree or something. Suggestions?
