Happy to report that April's charitable donation (I contribute a portion of my income to a different nonprofit each month)

Happy to report that April’s charitable donation (I contribute a portion of my income to a different nonprofit each month) went to The Dougy Center, who “provide a safe place for children, teens, young adults and their families who are grieving a death to share their experiences…through peer support groups, education and training.” A very incredible organization!

Ahh…finally feels like spring…much to write about and catch up on in blogland, having had my head buried in some personal and work commitments, but will be back with a vengeance soon! In the meantime, here are my favorite bits ‘n’ pieces this week…

* Get overexcited around beautifully merchandised fresh produce and local goodies? Here are some great ways to make sure you eat what you bring home from the farmer’s market!

* Totally groovy – beavers saving salmon in California. Love it!

* We’ve all seen those lists of things-you-hadn’t-thought-of that are compostable but this particular list had some newbies for me, including balloons (not that I have these lying around), wine corks (I always had taken these to New Seasons), natural sponges and loofahs!

* RIP Sabeen Mahmud, a Pakistani free speech activist who was recently murdered. Let’s keep her spirit alive and speak our minds, women!

* A touching preview of a local documentary put together by some folks in my neighborhood including a former colleague of mine, giving a peek at all the despicable demolition of perfectly good old homes, replacing them with ugly, often poorly-built larger substitutes.

Science has never drummed up quite as effective a tranquilizing agent as a sunny spring day.

    Wonderful story on the beavers. If we left nature alone we would have much to learn from how the animals and ecosystems work together. I did find the numbers of salmon surviving to be shocking, I knew wild salmon was on the decline but had no idea it was this bad.
