and I really LOVE the resources you list at the bottom.

"Hi Patricia - I met you at the CNPS Chapter Picnic yesterday & recognized your name from the columns ... then when I got home, I noticed that the page I had torn out of the West County Gazette to pin up in the kitchen was actually your column for this month, "Discarding Your Stuff...[Ecologically]"! This is SO useful. I wanted to thank you.
