    Pinch me. 481 points now!!!!!  I did a bunch of one-time challenges today concerning water conservation and my power usage. Again, it's really not that difficult. My goal is to keep working more on warm connections with fellow human beings on a daily basis as well. Do unto others...

    Are we getting 5 points each time we post and communicate with each other? That would certainly help the cause and create a stronger community of action!

      You get 5 points for posting, but I believe only once per day. So you can post all you want but only earn 5 points per day from it. :)

      Hello Rob. That's awesome! I never expected to rack up so many points.

       I enjoy connecting with people; I think a skype would be great.

      Amazing Dezi! You rocked it. Congrats. You are one of the 2 winners. Would you prefer a signed copy of my book or a half hour skype with me? Thanks for your hard work for the team and for yourself!

    I started this challenge late and thought I might not be contributing much. But what I didn't realize is how much I can do in one day because I care, and because I have been working on gradually becoming more conscious and aware of my choices. It's really pretty easy, and enjoyable, to spend time in the garden planting, to buy organic, etc. The list of challenges shows me what I can do, and the impact I can make by simply shifting my choices. We can do it. And if I find something I'm resistant to, instead of doing it with an attitude, I decide to do it with love -- for myself, for others and for the planet.

      Thank you, Rob. You inspire us! :)  Looks like we pulled ahead in points to #1 position again. As we work on our goals and actions, I think it's all fine and good to make personal changes, but the most important ones of all are the ones that help create change, protect and uplift others. We experience a rush when we can help another human being, an animal, our environment, anything outside of ourselves because it's only with giving that we get. Even if we give a small thing like a smile. I know you've experienced this during your "People Are Good" Trip. What a great thing to show! Thank you for your work in the world.

      Today I made my MD laugh.
      I made 3 workers at Trader Joe's smile.
      I'm going to bed with a smile.

    Started a pickling liquid today and pickled some shredded daikon radish, and some carrots. Yum!

    Meatless, organic, whole foods eating today for all three meals. I didn't miss the meat and feel great. Rice, red lentils and cauliflower dinner was very satisfying. Thinking about liquid fasting one day/week like I used to years ago.

    I not only ate organic today, but also ate meatless meals.
