Hope Springs Eternal!

   Do you know who is said to be the most famous meteorologist in the world, even though he only forecasts the weather once a year?  If you guessed Punxsutawney Phil you would be correct.  Going back to 1877, all eyes fall upon the prognosticating groundhog the 2nd of every February to get a peek into the upcoming arrival of spring.  And in case you missed the exciting news, Phil did not see his shadow this year which means spring is just around the corner. And while it may all be for fun, what if he’s right?  But even if the little furry guy is off a week or two, time’s still a tickin’ to be on top of your...

  Have you ever wished you had superpowers? Well maybe in fact you do. And you don’t even have to come bearing a cape or mask, or the ability to leap tall buildings in a single bound. So how can you engage your superpowers?  Do you realize the average household produces on average 650 lbs. of organic trash a year? What’s more, most of that ends up in the landfill.  The hard fact is upwards of 40% of our landfills are packed full of organic matter. Like lots of folks, maybe you’re thinking that’s ok, that it’ll break down since it’s out of sight in a nice big hole in the ground. But there’s a real problem with this theory...
