From the site's main page:
This April 14th, tens of thousands of Americans will gather all across the country at meaningful, iconic places to call for action on climate change. We will hike, bike, climb, walk, swim, kayak, canoe, or simply sit or stand with banners of our call to action: "Step It Up, Congress! Cut carbon 80% by 2050!"

A walk in the park this weekend. Perhaps a run around Forest Park. Something to get out and see some good greenery and life.
New podcasts adorn the broken innards of my iPod. The Now Show and This American Life are newbies to my playlist and I am quite the fan. And the word of the day, of course.
Not much to say, I guess. Back to the grind!

Dairy (the block of cheese in the fridge mocks me)
caffeine (oh how I miss my coffee!)
It's a tough one. I'm a week into it already and am surviving. My energy level is not high-it peaks about 5 minutes after I eat and is over soon after. The worst part is that my brain power is lacking, and concentrating is not easy, to say the least. But I'm forcing my way thru. He says I'll lose some weight, which sucks, because I think I was finally putting some back on (in a good way). Not to mention that being productive at work is not easy when you can't concentrate and are listless. So it goes.
Got to see my little bro and sis last week when Stu rolled thru town with his tour. It gave me an excuse to leave work early which didn't hurt me none.
Not too much has been going on out here. I am trying to pick a place to make a trip and see, and I've not been able to narrow it down enough yet. It's been over a damn year since I was off somewhere, and that is way too long. Unacceptable.
Asia, Eastern Europe, Africa, S. America, Central America or what? I can't decide. So many choices!
No rain today. It was nice to ride the bike in shorts and a tshirt. In my dreamland, summer is here....
