Recommended Resources

-- Quote of the Day -- 

…We can create a habit of thinking more positively in our life. …When we focus our attention on our heart, and then think about someone we love or something we appreciate – these emotions shift the heartbeat; the heart sends a signal to the amygdala. Science has proven that we can change our physiological state by practicing this new habit. …This is also an anti-aging gift to yourself… it increases a hormone in our body called DHEA that helps us feel and look younger. …Taking care of yourself means you actually have more to give. If we take time out for ourselves we can accomplish more, we will be more energetic, more effective and function more efficiently.

It's been a while since we put together a Referral Corner for our readers - where we offer recommended resources to check out when you have time.

I'd like to start with a resource on composting:

Cool 2012 has a fantastic site, and their focus is to create positive change today with easy solutions to some of the world's environmental problems. "While we work toward longer-term, challenging solutions like shutting down coal-fired power plants and taking cars off the road, the easiest, first step that can produce significant climate results RIGHT NOW is to STOP landfill-produced methane. Simply by getting COOL — Compostable Organics Out of Landfills — by 2012, we can prevent potent methane emissions AND build healthier soils. Taking the COOL step replenishes carbon stocks and supports sustainable agriculture, yielding healthier foods for our population. The technology exists, the need is certain and the time to act is NOW.


The Penguin Foundation on Philip Island in Australia rescues and rehabilitates oiled and injured Little Blue (Fairy) penguins.  This facility is connected with the world famous 'penguin parade' site.
