5th "Conservation" Linky: Honor Our Veterans 11/11/11-11/17/11

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, re-purposed, 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 re-purpose 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:

In recognition of Veterans' Day, we will open this Linky Party with anything to do with honoring our Veterans, or conservation. I think our Veterans deserve more than a day so we will provide this Linky Party for a whole week!

I found a good site for this:

Thank You Veterans!

  1. Thanks, Pam, for visiting the Corner on Character. I've added a link to my page for our party! I'm hoping our pictures will post today as the photographer at school got some amazing shots of the kids with their hero Veterans.


  2. Love hosting your link Barbara! I'm looking at your blog now.

    I don't see them. I'll stop by again later!
