A Billion Acts of Green is looking for a billion people worldwide to take the pledge to be more environmentally responsible. There is a form to pledge your personal environmental action this year. I pledged to replace all my lightbulbs with environmentally friendlier ones and unplug my electronics at night. Happy Earth Day!

I have been avoiding the computer lately because I am quitting smoking. The only place I smoked was in front of the computer. I quit on the first of April because of the price increase. I simply don't want to give my money to the government or the tobacco companies anymore. Each day I don't smoke, I transfer $4.00 from my checking into my savings. It should add up quickly. The savings will go for a vacation or something special. It has been hard, but 30 year old habits are not easy to break. The worst time of day is in the morning with my first cup of coffee. But, each day is getting easier. I can't wait for the day when I can finally say I am a non-smoker.

Two Birthdays

This week, my oldest son turned 29 and my little grandson turned 1. I can't believe how fast time flies by. It seems only yesterday my son was a baby and I was 29! Happy Birthday Darrel and Thomas!
