Sometimes I wonder if we should pray for the strength to climb the mountain rather than the ability to move it out of the way.

DIY Sliding Door:
“Want to incorporate a sliding door somewhere in your house? Me too! Freaked out by the price of barn door hardware? Me too! But check it out, I received an email from a sweet gal named Brier this week, and she and her hubby figured out an easy way to get the look for less. Check it out…”

The real conflict is not between humans and nature. It is between current and future human generations. When the actions of current generations reduce or destroy the generative capacity of Earth’s natural living systems for a quick financial return or gratuitous shot of material gratification, we do not borrow from future generations: We steal from them.

If you don’t want to go through life as a victim, you have to start taking responsibility for what is going on in your life.

I love this kid of thinking. CD shelve are perfectly sized for so many things. My favourite is fat quarters of fabric but this is easily a close second.

That moment of realizing that you’re a grown-up - for my generation, that was when you got your driver’s license or car. For young people now, that moment comes when you get your first cellphone.

A quote from Tony Dudzik, senior policy analyst at a California-based think tank, in the recent Reuters article, ‘America’s Generation Y not driven to drive’. The article explores the story behind an important emerging trend:

From 2001 to 2009, the average annual number of vehicle-miles traveled by people ages 16-34 dropped 23 percent, from 10,300 to 7,900, the survey found. Gen Y-ers, also known as Millennials, tend to ride bicycles, take public transit and rely on virtual media.

More than a quarter of Millennials - 26 percent - lacked a driver’s license in 2010, up 5 percentage points from 2000, the Federal Highway Administration reported.

And, it’s not just about cellphones. Check out the rest of the article here.
