"A persons ability to take a compliment shows the depths of his Faith" ~Tara Woodruff
Have you ever received a compliment and immediately became weary of the givers motives or character? If you have never had this experience, then you don’t need to read on, you need to write!
Over the years I have been in both positions. For a very long time, I never trusted a person that went out of their way (or not) to tell me something good about me. I would become very tense and… Continue

Habitat for Humanity was founded in 1976 by Millard and Linda Fuller. Millard was a very successful business man and had provided for a luxurious life for his wife and children. They owned 2,000 acres, horses, boats, cars. They were living the American dream, till one day Linda had enough and left Millard. After a short while Millard was able to convince Linda to talk with him. He flew to New York and they sat down to discus their problems. What they realized was that even though they had… Continue

I just received a response from Governor Scott's staff. The FLORIDA GREEN SCHOOL AWARDS program of the previous administration is being CONTINUED! This program encourages participation by students (as young as kindergarden), classes, teachers, schools, and school districts! Last year, Pinellas County had a teacher of Kindergarden, Susan Carney, be selected a teacher finalist, for her project entitled, Green Waterwise.

Social Change in America’s School Lunch Programs
Tara L. Woodruff June 28, 2009
There are many issues that face education in America today; but today I will focus on the effect of nutrition and children’s cognitive development. This came to the forefront of my experience when I attended my daughter’s third grade Christmas concert. As the families gathered in the reception area, I noticed that there was a… Continue

The question “What is permaculture?” is notoriously difficult to answer in one sentence. It defies the “sound bite” culture we live in.
Let’s start with what permaculture is NOT. Seriously, it has nothing to do with permafrost. It is not sheet-mulching, though some may use that as a particular strategy. It is not a variant (or deviant:) of “organic,” though it may use many organic growing strategies. It is not getting a bunch of people together to stomp some mud…

Okay so this is a quick check in about No Electricity month. I’m here at Fresh Go (www.Fresh-Go.com) in St Pete getting some sweet potato fries and wifi. I don’t think Eric and I would have made it through Unprocessed Foods month without this place. Now we’re back for the food and the wifi, so we can stay somewhat connected to the outside world while our power is off this month.
We flipped the power breakers off on March… Continue

A time comes in your life when you finally get it... when, in the midst of all your fears and insanity, you stop dead in your tracks and somewhere the voice inside your head cries out - ENOUGH! Enough fighting and crying ......or struggling to hold on. And, like a child quieting down after a blind tantrum, your sobs begin to subside, you shudder once or twice, you blink back your tears and begin to look at the world through new eyes. This is your… Continue

Winding Down “No Cash” Month and Throwing the

Wheeling and dealing – Over the last week we were able to expand our bartering. We were actually able to reach out to different people and do some trading. I imagine that this is what a new Avon lady feels like. You can only bilk your closest friends so much before you run out of orders. The highlight for Eric was the acquisition… Continue
