Opportunities for Change


-- Quote of the Day --
"Some tension is necessary for the soul to grow, and we can put that tension to good use. We can look for every opportunity to give and receive love, to appreciate nature, to heal our wounds and the wound of others, to forgive, and to serve."

~ Joan Borysenko

Now here’s some interesting innovation you mind enjoy – a Canadian, family-owned-and-operated company known as Atlas Block,  are now producing concrete construction and landscaping materials using colored glass collected through municipal blue bin programs.
