This week, we celebrated Earth Day, and I have been heartened to see folks participating in ways that make a real difference. I’ll get on my soapbox, and remind you, dear reader, that we share this planet with many other living creatures, and since we are on the top of the food chain, it is our responsibility to use our natural resources wisely, and be stewards for future generations. Conservation is highly effective, and can be done right now. No new technologies are needed. So, turn off the car when you are parked, recycle your plastics, and start using reusable containers whenever possible. It’s these small changes that will make a big difference if we all do them. Then we will leave something for our children to savor and enjoy. Thank you!
Now that all the spring holidays with the family are behind us – Easter, Greek Easter and Passover, I recommend building on the celebratory vibe and start enjoying the spring time rebirth that these holidays have come to represent. Even if the thermometer isn’t quite where want it to be, the spring flowers are budding, and blooming in some cases, the baby animals are joining the world, and warmer sunny days are coming very soon! As it turns out National Cheese Fondue Day is this week, and any day is a good day to enjoy some cheese. Pull out your fondue pot, get some skewers, invite over some friends – with a bottle of Long Island wine, of course, and make some memories. There is definitely a way to savor your journey with some ooey gooey cheese and bread on a stick!
