Green Living Workshop Update week 3 of 2007
Welcome two new additions to our Wednesday RGP Crew-

We went over time last week so I will ask your help in keeping us on schedule.
The Green movement has so many fascinating aspects to I know this is difficult,
but remember we have still four weeks in which we can share our thoughts and I am always willing to stay and talk after class.

Small items we can passs around while we can continue talking are great!
