Monday was Earth Day. I took the Earth Day web site’s footprint calculator (here http://www.earthday.org/footprint-calculator) and the outcome was not good. If everyone on the face of the earth lived as large as I did, there would have to be 7.1 earths to provide the resources needed. (Maybe it was the 100 hrs+ of airplane flying that did me in? At least I have not traveled much at all the last four weeks! .. I suppose the same number of planes flew anyway, though. But hey, at least I recycle everything I can, and try hard not to waste water and electricity). And I couldn’t resist posting the cute aardvark with its huge rabbit ears. Aardvark is Afrikaans (or Dutch) and its direct translation is ‘hog of the earth’.
