What can retired people, actually all people, do to leave a lasting legacy?
What are the things that I can do for my children and my children's children!
A lasting legacy is more than a financial one; more than a gift that will not
survive through more than one generation.

We seem to live in a society where more is better, bigger is better and the corporate entities who supply our more and bigger products are happy to accommodate us. In fact they provide the ads and incentives to fuel those attitudes.

Just think back to when the family car went from sedan to station wagon to mini-vans to SUVs and large vans. It became a huge demand for bigger and the automakers were happy to supply the more. Today with the cost of filling up our 1999 Honda coupe going over $50 to $53.14; suddenly the demand for the larger vehicles has diminished to the place where those same automakers are either not paying even close to blue book value for an SUV or giant truck or not even accepting them. Their lots are full.

In an effort to do what I can for the Earth and the environment and now for my own financial health; I am always looking for the ways that we can make even little strides in conservation and frugal ways of living that will add up to large savings for us personally and even larger savings for our communities if done by many.

How To Go Green!

Hi friend,
If you want to do something for the world, then try this. It's very easy. Just do something for yourself. Something that you always wanted to do in life and you haven't. And if everybody starts doing their own work, seldom they have to sought after anybody's help!
