Nuthin' But an App Thang

Eric's sister Julia's husband, Josh works for Vertical Response. They provide email marketing solutions. They partner with Salesforce and made this video to promote their partnership. Josh is the one with the white shirt and black jacket. Even if you have no idea what they're talking about, it's still a pretty clever song/video.

Zaca Fire

Back on July 4, some ranch workers accidentally started a small brush fire near Zaca Lake. It is still burning today and has now burned over 105,000 acres. For a few days now we've seen a massive plume of smoke rising ominously behind the mountains. We have a great view of it at SBCC. We make sure to take time for "plume viewings" during the day.

How I Plan to Save the World

What are you doing to "save the world"?
What changes are you making in your life lessen your impact on Mother Earth?

Here's three things we've done:

1. Made cloth napkins. Save money, reduce use of paper and plastic. Just toss 'em in the wash with the load you're running already!

2. Built a worm bin from found materials and use it for food waste management. Reduce!

3. Started a garden. Reduce trips to the farm stand and grocery store. Pesticide free.
