VOTE with your life

Well most of us made it through the time change...

And now its time to vote...
The good news is the election ads will all be over soon but the commentary will no doubt continue.  I'm so glad we've pretty much turned off the TV at our house, although the final game of the World Series was worth turning it on!

Whether you want to #MakeAmericaGreatAgain or are #NeverTrump, #WithHer or #NeverHillary, or voting for a third party candidate, do you wonder how you can really make a difference?

Hey America!  It's your new First Family!
 You can!

VOTE with your LIFE!

Upset with Industrial Food?

Grow some of your own food in your yard or a community garden.  Make many of your meals at home, using ingredients that you believe in.

"“Eat your view!” takes work, however... Much of the appeal of the industrial food chain is its convenience; it offers busy people a way to delegate their cooking (and food preservation) to others. At the other end of the industrial food chain that begins in a cornfield in Iowa sits an industrial eater at a table. (Or, increasingly, in a car.) The achievement of the industrial food system over the past half-century has been to transform most of us into precisely that creature." - Michael Pollan


Protests draw attention to your cause.  I don't know enough about Standing Rock to make an informed opinion.  I have heard facts and arguments from both sides.  Unfortunately I think its one big mess of propaganda that is brewing serious trouble.  I feel for Native peoples, despise Eminent Domain abuse, and want clean water

What to do?  Reduce the demand!  Reducing the demand for natural gas and fuel will reduce the need for expanded infrastructure.

Rising Healthcare Costs

Stay healthy by making healthy choices!  Again, reduce the demand on the system.
Have a sore throat in the night? Skip the ER and give it a couple days.  You might not need a round of antibiotics.  These are only helpful against bacteria, not viruses, and can really do a number on healthy gut bacteria.
Over and inappropriate use of medical facilities, amongst other factors, has contributed to rising costs.

Our bodies are pretty resilient, let's give them a chance.

Moral and Community Decay

Teach our children values, by word but mostly by example
Get to know your neighbors.
Get involved with your church or faith community.
Build community!
Host or join a Permablitz!

You see, WE can make a DIFFERENCE,
WE can make a CHOICE that will REALLY MATTER!


  1. This is a good one! Really dropping some knowledge. I especially like the graphic about commuting by bicycle.
