    New user from Kansas

    Hello, everyone. Iím the Community Development Director for Lindsborg, a small (3200) town in central Kansas known for Swedish ancestry and culture. We recently adopted a Sustainable Growth Policy with a basis in The Natural Step. Setting up the program in a non-political way has been a recent challenge. Initially, Iíll be interested in reading any previous discussions on sustainable growth, historic preservation and green building renovation.

    From Western Arizona

    How do you convince anyone there to take such progressive actions? Seriously.....what's the secret?

    Welcome from the Hoosier State, along the Ohio River.
    Oddball
    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.
    From Electric Horseman (1979)

    Hello, from Dallas, TX!
    "We do not need any other Tutankhamun's tomb with all its treasures. We need context. We need understanding. We need knowledge of historical events to tie them together. We don't know much. Of course we know a lot, but it is context that's missing, not treasures." - Werner Herzog, in Archaeology, March/April 2011
