Two Button Flush, Water Efficiency Toilet Confuses Cathy Kates

I was at my friend Stephanie's house and had to use the rest room.  Now, I'm pretty verse and can find my way around a home bathroom pretty good, but Stephanie's confused me to the point I had to open the door and question:  Do I push the right button or the left button?  WHAT???

My Earth Day Apology to Our Planet

Today I woke up like any other Earth Day, not realizing that it's Earth Day.  I mean, it's something we really don't look forward to unless your big into planting trees.  So I thought back on how I've mistreated the earth this last year.  It's almost always by accident, but still it wasn't good for the environment.  I'm not a litterer, and I recycle... most of the time.  But here are some things I'm sorry about.

Go Green With the Duluth Streams Corps, Our Streams Need Our Help

I’ve lived in Duluth for four years now, and I’m constantly amazed at how special this place is. The view, the beaches, the music, the food – I could go on and on. For a city its size, Duluth has an incredible variety to offer its citizens. The things that astonish me the most, though, are the streams and wild places that flow right through the city. There are dozens of them – 42 to be exact – each with their own history, personality, and secluded charm.
