How did we end up here? We've lived in Northern Illinois for 23 years. Way too long for this vegetarian! Thankfully, we're only a Metra ride away from Chicago.

My future goat herd.

Do you care about the impact you're making on the Earth's resources but fell asleep watching An Inconvenient Truth? I just may have a book that will get you thinking how you can reduce your carbon footprint and laugh along with the author at the same time. My husband and I really enjoyed Doug Fine's book, Farewell, My Subaru: An Epic Adventure in Local Living.
Both my husband and I are city dwellers and after reading his book we'd like to smuggle a couple of goats into our backyard shed, rig up some solar panels on our house, and fill in our pool to have a huge garden. Ok I would like to fill in the pool not the husband but that's just my practical side kicking in.
Doug Fine has a blog with updates on how his experiment on local living is progressing. Check it out, it just may have you converting your Ridiculously Oversized American Truck(R.O.A.T.) to vegetable oil too!
