Medicine Man for Aug 16

I love this photo. My father told me “Never apologize for being born in the land of milk and honey.” That said, he has volunteered in his community his whole life, believes in equal rights and equal opportunity for all, is curious about other cultures and loves his two gay children. Maybe, when you look around at the world right now you feel incredibly blessed about your lot in life . Maybe, you are wondering how to make a difference. Lord knows I am.

Then read it, share it, tweet it.  Maybe most importantly start thinking about how you spend your money. Yesterday I posted a link to what Nestle is doing with water in BC (and Ontario). Here is their Chairman and former CEO’s thoughts on water. Today I bid farewell to my childhood candy bars. Nestle gets no more of my money!
