It's about time more people talked about this. I always try to get people to consider used guitars instead of new.

They took all the trees
And put them in a tree museum
And they charged all the people
A dollar and a half just to see'em.
Don't it always seem to go
That you don't know what you've got
Till it's gone.
They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot.

Bette, I agree. Joni Mitchell!!!

How do we save trees? I do not print except for postal, which is pretty rare.

Bette, let's face it, we're living in the land of plenty, we throw things away and do not reuse them, we squandor resources. I started buying rechargeable battteries more than five years ago, and they have lasted me for years. My shaver is recharcheable, and I bought it in 1985.

We can plant trees, more important, we can stop chopping them down. The NRDC has pointed out that poor urban planning results in more waste of resources due to urban sprawl.

My goal is to get back in touch with nature. Rather than go half way around the world to Antarctica (which about 65,000 people did last year)or the tropical rain forests, I want to bring wilderness to me.
