Carbon Footprint

Global warming eh? I think we now all agree that it's a fact and the current argument centers around whether man has caused it or if it is simply the Earth's natural cycle and there's nothing we can do about it. Anyway, there's been a lot of talk recently about carbon footprints and saving energy and planting trees to offset flights you take. I don't really understand how that last bit works, but I do know this...I chopped down more trees than Brazil this weekend, so I'm probably not going to win any awards from Al Gore any time soon:

It certainly gives you more backyard space! I do believe that you are correct when you mentioned that Al Gore won't be handing you any rewards sometime soon. Were they getting in the way of your peppers? What'd they do? ? ?

They looked overgrown and scraggly. We couldn't see the fence, or get to the soil, or even mow the lawn back there.

Lizzie: Ah, so that's why your blog wasn't updated for weeks. We shall expect daily updates from now on, now that you're back in the civilised, Internet connected world.

Mindy: If I didn't plant it, it's a weed, even if it's a 10 foot tall tree.
