Earth Hour Plans

This Saturday, March 29, starting at 7:00 p.m., members of Beaver Creek Housing Co-operative will turn off their lights for an hour in the cause of fighting climate change.

Members and their invited friends will make their own hand-rolled beeswax candles to light for a community walk, followed by story telling for all ages and a discussion on "greening" their housing community.

How are you going to spend Earth Hour?

Cars and the Spirit of Co-op Living: By the way... could I borrow your car again?

Last spring, Geraldine and I threw in the towel on our most recent used car. After spending hundreds of dollars on never ending repairs, the engine cracked a week after we had the brakes fixed!

We agreed we had learned everything the universe possibly had to teach us about driving a succession of worn-out lemons into the ground. So we sat around the kitchen table and tried to budget for a new car. It was possible, but we thought a diet of bread and water for that many years might be a bit much.
