Earth Hour 2009

We participated in Earth in 2009, on March 28th. We held a movie night at the Quaker Meetinghouse and then turned off the lights to have a candlelit discussion. We showed the movie Wall-E, which seemed appropriate to lead up to a talk on how to help the planet. We had a good turn out. Boston.com’s Big Picture As always they have incredible photos from events, and the Earth Hour photos are extra special, when you click on a city photo it fades to show you what it looked like after the lights were turned out.

The Diet

A year and several months later after putting my back out quite severely I’m feeling well enough to take on a consistent exercise routine. Turning 30 also put a bit more fuel on the fire as well.

This video is a little late. Back in November we headed up to the White Mountains of New Hampshire for Thanksgiving. It also coincided with being 10 years to the day we got engaged while up there. This year, I ended up getting very sick after only one day up there and spent most of the trip attached to tissues, DayQuil/NyQuil and chapstick. Craig drove me around and I shot video. We first headed up the Kancamagus Highway out of Lincoln. Oh, I just remembered we also got to see the Venus, Jupiter and Moon alignment very clearly from up in the mountains. The next day we drove through Franconia Notch, where my parents used to vacation for 20 years. The area feels like a second home to me.
