I love this idea. I do believe that we can be wasteful and that others could benefit from the thingsRead More we just throw away. My roommate for example throws away stuff that is still good. I would like to start a program like this for <a href="http://leyecare.com/contact/">eyeglasses in edmonton</a>.

Find the key decision-makers, and send them e-mails describing the deficiencies, along with detailedRead More information on how to resolve the issues. Ask for a response, and an update. Also try calling their agencies, and be prepared to explain the situation and solution. Be persistent, and patient, while not letting the issue rest. This is road repair season and the crews are out. Here's some incentive: http://www.mlive.com/news/grand-rapids/index.ssf/2012/06/fred_meijer_m-6_trail_crossing.html

Hey, Connecticuters, check out simple and effective bike safety initiative we started here inRead More Albany, CA - www.CheckForBikes.org . It sounds like motorists could use more awareness that they have to share the road with cyclists and these vinyl clings are a good place to start. Please look at the site and contact me through it or through AlbanyPatch.com . Let's make sure that THIS DOES NOT HAPPEN AGAIN!

I wanted to reach out to the bicycle community and let them know about a kickstarter that I amRead More launching to fund a month long road trip to finish the shooting for my ghost bike project. Hopefully, you forward and repost this link and maybe even become a backer (every dollar helps). I greatly appreciate you taking the time to look at this link and pass it along. Check out the project here: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1004330446/the-ghost-bike-project Thank you!! Genea

julie essentially says that if you are rich and try to do a good thing-you should not receive anyRead More credit. Julie--donate your house or land-and we will give you 1.5 times credit. The left wants to portray the rich as these evil people who should receive nothing in return for anything. Meanwhile the top 2% pay 50+% of all taxes. Do you even get that? You take Mitt romney --he pays 6.5 million dollars to the government 6.5MILLION and then you have 1000 occupy people who have paid a total of ZERO--and these are the guys saying that Mitt isnt paying his fair share? Is zero fair? for sitting in a park writing graffiti --burning the flag, etc? Those people are paying zero and that is what is fair? For doing zilch? I dont get it.....if I get in free to a football game--and someone else is asked to pay 5 mio to get in--i dont yell that he should have paid 9 mio. And say he is ripping me off. Where do these people come from? The family gives away their land to the public-and now they are characterized as bad people? Maybe you dont care--but dont twist everything into a contest of how the rich need to sacrifice everything and we should admire people who camp out and burn the flag as being the righteous. Everything is getting ridiculous.

Luca, why lie? "The family gives away their land to the public-and now they are characterizedRead More as bad people? " None of the posters have said the family were bad people, I expected you to be above things like this.
