    I can't eat that many fruits and veggies.  In fact, at age 66 I barely eat 2 meals a day.  However, I am very healthy.  Today, I took four bags of a friend's paper products and put it all into my recycle bin.  The one thing I wish would have been focused on more is OVERPOPULATION.  Can you add that topic top future projects/challenges?  I also wish more cities would put the homeless to work cleaning up litter, sorting it and recycling.  I know Albuquerque has one such program and it looks like it is very successful.   Companies need to CUT DOWN on packaging waste--it is horrendous--and bottled water must come to an end unless there are dire emergencies.  I didn't complete all of my challenges but I am determined to get my two-weeks worth of three happy things done.

    Here are a few things I do to make a difference:  I don't shower/bathe every day.  Unless one is working hard labor jobs, sweating a lot and getting covered in dust and dirt.  there's no need to clean one's entire body every day.  The same goes for hair washing.  I never send my yard waste to a land fill.  I always take it to my local yard waste recycling facility.  My husband and I have three low-flow toilets and still only flush every third or fourth time.  I had one child.  No one should have more than two children.  LET'S TALK ABOUT OVERPOPULATION MORE!!

    My profile photo depicts the amount of litter I picked up along a stretch of
    Beach Litter 002.jpg 72.5 KB
    beach in front of our condo in Biloxi, MS in 2012.  I did this every other day for a month while we were staying there and sometimes I would gather even more.  It was rewarding but also very depressing.  People looked at me like I was crazy.  The other sad part was that there were no recycling facilities in the region so I had to throw away all of the recyclables.  The second photo shows what I gathered on a different day.

      Keep it up Georgia. Most of the great people look crazy to the mainstream US society. :)
