I recieved this email..........thank you so much for participating in our initiative and making your blog carbon neutral! Your tree will be planted this month by the Arbor Day Foundation. The scheduled start plant date was Monday, April 19 and the trees will be planted by a contracted crew. The roads are being plowed, all contracts solidified, and twelve shipments of 150,000 seedling each are being assembled. We thank you for the support!

There are still some trees looking for a sponsor. So if you know some people who have a blog or website, pass it on and we'll make their blogs carbon neutral too!  click here

In honor of earth day I would like a tree planted to make my blog carbon neutral.According to Alexander Wissner just planting one tree per blog can help the planet.So many trees have been destroyed in fires over the years and have not been replanted.Here is how you can participate

This is what I see lying on my bed.


I look out of my window
And what do I see
Yellow and red flowers staring back at me.
I see the blue sky over the hill
There is no wind ,the leaves are so still.

I hear the birds chirping
heralding the morn.
I see the rabbits scurrying
after munching on the lawn.

It is a beautiful day outside,
And I am glad to be alive
Even if most of my days are spent inside.

Everything awakens for this season.
The cold winter rest brings new reason.
I love Spring.

Is it a Slate, is it a phone,is it a page? No it is my IPad

      "J" walks in with this  little bag from Best buy, I immediately say to myself "I wonder what he has bought this time". He opens the box and hands me the IPad. I hold it in my hands, look it over and then I am immediately  transported back in time. It is the begining of the school year,my mother was really busy, there were books to be bought and new clothes to be stitched.My older brothers would be busy covering their books with brown paper and fixing  nice colorful labels on the front of the book.I was just happy with my slate.

To me the slate was like an never ending book,you could write and draw and at the touch of an eraser you could  start over, it was magical.I remember writing my name on the wooden frame and carefully putting it into my school bag,sometimes I would come home crying because my slate was broken,or sometimes it was because it was stolen,but I did love my slate. I would spend a lot of time sitting in a corner,slate propped on my knees writing and drawing.

Today I felt I was holding my slate in my hand again,it is the same size and shape and to me everything about it is magical.At the touch of my finger I can make things appear or disappear and I can also flip the pages as if it were a book.It is just so  exciting.If only my mother were alive to see this,she would understand why I am so much in love with the Ipad. Thank You "J" for getting this for me.

I pick up my Ipad, put it in my bag and I feel I am on my way to school.

"J"  and I had this serious discussion this morning about morality.he posed this questions to me." Should Judgement be based on motive or outcome"?

For example  he says. 'A....  drives recklessly on a road but does not kill or hurt anyone but B drives recklessly but kills or hurts someone, should they be judged the same way. we may say that A did not hurt anyone but B did, but in the end the motive to drive recklessly was the same.How would we judge them.

As usual I am stumped and don't know the correct answer DO YOU?
