A New Blogosphere Friend

Hi again!

Eventually I'll get around to writing about what's REALLY going on in my life: keeping the boys happy, planning our trip to Nebraska, and keeping all of the contractors working on our house straight. Today should be a relatively relaxing day -- the termite treatment is done, the remnants of our home inspection work is now scheduled, and I've found a preschool for Timmy in Nebraska!

But for now, allow me to introduce you to Sharon O'Donnell of Cary, NC, who apparently has become famous for her new book "House of Testosterone" about being a Mom of 3 boys.

I saw the website named on a bumper sticker in Apex last week, so yesterday I remembered to check it out. When I noticed all of Ms. O'Donnell's book readings were in central N.C., I checked further to find out she lives in the next town over from me. Cool!

Many of my blog "regulars" are Moms of boys (Maryann, Wendy, Deidre, Dawn, Mandakini, Robin, Christina): our scrapbooking/sewing/stamping/needlepoint areas have been usurped by toy trains, race tracks, acres of Army men, and Legos Legos Legos! Thought you might enjoy this!

Off We Go...Into the Wild Green Yonder!

I subscribe to an e-mail US Air Force news service called "AIM Points" which comes from the Secretary of the Air Force's Public Affairs office. It collects AF-related news articles from throughout the media and consolidates them into one reader. It also pushes messages from our Air Force leaders. For example, this week they're pushing out the "101 Critical Days of Summer" safety campaign message to us.

Today I was pleased to read this article, which says that the Los Angeles AFB commissary will not only be able to significantly reduce their energy budget with their solar panels, but will be able to sell the excess energy to Southern California Edison and possibly return energy funding to the Department of Defense.

Los Angeles Air Force Base's press release about their new solar panels is here. And the base did this energy-saving act last week.

I know, the LED and Compact Fluorescent lighting seems like a small simple thing to do, but I attest that every little bit counts, starting with individual acts.
