    This challenge has been amazing. I need to document all the sites for refresher reading. I don't think we can access this site after the challenge, but not sure.

    Today is Holocaust Remembrance Day. As part of my mindfulness practice I am focusing on being more accepting and tolerant of others. Also to speak out when injustice happens.

      You'll have to let us know where you take this.  A story later for how your participation in our event led you to solar would be a great one to tell.  :)

    I was proud of myself at work on Saturday.  I saw an aluminum can in the trash. On the 2nd time by I put on gloves and saved the can by putting it in the recycle container. I read that we throw away enough aluminum in the US that we could rebuild our entire domestic airlines. And recycling takes less energy and water than making new aluminum.
