2nd "Conservation" Linky: Share Your Halloween Tips & Tricks (or Treats!) , 10/21/11-10/27/11

Imagine that you live on a spaceship (because you do) traveling to the nearest extra-solar star* [OK, you're on a BIG spaceship orbiting the Sun...].

What would you take? How would you do things differently?

I'm Pam Hoffman and I was 'green' when it was still a color. I started making different decisions about my personal "Conservation" back in the 80s, I just always thought of it as 'spaceship thinking' so I reused, recycled, repurposed, composted and plain old did not get things as part of my daily routine.

I'm Jeff Miller. My parents went through the depression and WWII rationing so, I too, was raised to think of ways to reuse, recycle, and repurpose things. I do my bit to conserve resources but I'm not radical about it. In my own bit of "spaceship thinking," I've always felt that we've been tearing apart the life support system to repair the coffee maker. However, I'm a technophile so I think that our increasing understanding and innovations will eventually solve the problem. I just hope that there's something left to save.

Topic of the week:

This week, we are thinking about Halloween. When my daughter was young, we went to the local city Art Center and made costumes. We used paper mache which used up old newspapers and other materials rather than buying her costumes.

Those costumes were kind of a sore point with her at the time. I remember getting ready for Halloween being the time we got along best since we were working on a project for her together and these unique costumes always earned her compliments. Some of them even won prizes! She always had fun ideas like one year, she went as an erupting volcano!
