Zoe and I had the absolute pleasure of volunteering a few hours of our time for Fields to Families. I was introduced to this non-profit through two of Chad’s coworkers, who are on the board, and I instantly wanted to help. After looking at my schedule and capabilities, I decided helping at a booth at […]


Recycling Fail takes a look at ways people botch this basic green action. It’s funny…’cause it’s true. Here’s a shot where it looks like someone had some semi-useful items (wood scraps and a used window?), so they left them for “someone else to pick-up.” I bet they got their wish.

Route 40 Revisited

What fun my littlest guy and I had riding the bus downtown! Graham and I sat on the bench and caught the CARTA bus at 9 a.m. The bus was on time, so our wait was minimal. We boarded, paid $1.25, and rode route 40 downtown. Graham was comfortable and quiet on my lap, until […]


Bus Route 40

It’s official. After living in Mt. Pleasant for almost eleven years, I had yet to use a form of public transportation. No longer – I introduced myself to CARTA via bus route 40.
