    Each community is different in what and how you recycle.  You need to stop in and ask to get the real scoop.  Once I know if it’s trash or recyclable I can make a conscious buying decision.  My cardboard milk carton is recyclable in my town.  I cut away the unnecessary plastic pouring spout because it doesn’t belong with mixed paper.  And I grew up with cardboard milk cartons and know how to open and pour plastic free.

    Of all the renewable energy options available to us -- such as solar, wind, and geothermal – solar energy is the most plentiful.

    Even though today is on the cloudy side, the National Renewable Energy Lab says that Maine has plenty of available sunshine to offset our energy needs – an amount similar to the solar energy resources available in Texas, a very sunny state, and a 30% greater resource than Germany, a world leader in solar energy.

    What is a caucus? Merriam-Webster defines caucus as: a closed meeting of a group of persons belonging to the same political party or faction usually to select candidates or to decide on policy OR a group of people united to promote an agreed-upon cause. Interestingly the term was first used in American politics by John Adams in 1763 and some scholars believe the term derived from an Algonquian term for a group of elders, leaders, or advisers.

    Prophetic Tidbit - the GLORY OF HIS LOVE

    There is no distance between the Father’s heart and our own. Love has instant access to the Father’s heart that we may know His thoughts, counsel, and wisdom as partakers of His divine nature (2 Peter 1:4). His love has no height, breadth, length or width – like the ever-expanding universe His vast love reaches in every direction (Eph. 3:18).

    Why do clothing companies feature tall, skinny models in their entire collection?  What about us real women?  I was having coffee and a mail catch up and I decided to look thru some fall catalogs for inspiration.  Party for work and partly because I love to sew.  When an entire collection is composed of “skinnies” it sends such a message to the female population.  Especially as we age we struggle with our self worth which is often tied to appearance.  We doubt we can be loved because of our b

    I’m feeling a bit nostalgic this week, perhaps because my oldest son Matthew was married last Friday. His bride Sarah is a wonderful woman; the ceremony was lovely; and they have settled here in the Midcoast.  All in all, I’m a very lucky “MOG,” or Mother of the Groom. But still, these milestones can cause a few wistful pangs.
