on display ~ The artwork of Madison - artist, granddaughter, 5th grader - is on display (top left) at the Gilmer Arts and Heritage Association gallery, as the month of March is recognized as National Youth Art Month.

make a difference ~ Think your family going green won't make a difference? Wrong, says a U.S. study released on Thursday that shows one household ditching paper statements for Web transactions would save 24 square feet of forest a year. I still get a thrill just putting the junk mail into the recycling bin.

forever ~ On the other hand, I just bought 200 postage stamps. Stamps are going up in May, so stock up now on Forever Stamps, as they last, well, forever.

blast from the past ~ Remember Edith Ann, one of Lily Tomlin's endearing characters? Here she is, alive and well, and writing letters to the government.

The road to success is always under construction.

Madison's artwork is fantastic! Really...I'm very impressed.

I've ditched paper statements and pay all bills electronically. It's not only good for the environment, but it's the easiest way to manage them what with me being here 6 months and there 6 months.

Great quotes. Thanks. And so nice to see Edith Ann back. :-)

I'd better get to the post office...
