Yikes. It's Earth Day and I didn't do anything special. Not beyond what I normally do - recycle glass, paper, plastic and cardboard, avoid being a litterbug and drinking from plastic water bottles, and screaming at my family to turn off the blanket-blank lights. Oh, and we did just buy a new high-efficiency A/C and ordered an on-demand water heater (extra points!!) Had I known it was the big 4-0, perhaps I would've thrown a party. The truth is, I was too busy. So, have a happy belated birthday, Earth Day. And remember, 40 is the new 21!
