  1. Hi, Sarah,
    I am also from the Midwest (MN), with a degree in Communications from the University of North Dakota, though I now live in AZ. I taught English for 20 years, jr. and sr. high school, and in the community college. Now I am partially retired. Life for me is good, but it concerns me greatly that it it will NOT be good for our grandchildren and their children. Mother Earth, our home, needs a long overdue good “housecleaning.” If we don’t start cleaning up our mess right now, there will be no house to clean.

  2. Hi Sarah,

    I just found you because of the top 50 ( could not find a place to respond there). Great list and I follow most, but I was sad to see that you did not have one of the fantastic travel or better yet, family travel twits.

    Thanks for helping me find a few more goodies though! 😉
