"If there’s a world here in a hundred years, it’s going to be saved by tens of millions of little things. The powers-that-be can break up any big thing they want. They can corrupt it or co-opt it from the inside, or they can attack it from the outside. But what are they going to do about 10 million little things? They break up two of them, and three more like them spring up!"

Trash "prank" in reverse

Last week, I performed the Garbage "Prank." Today we had a PJ day, and we were busy pretending to live in the Middle Ages, catching up with some math, playing our various instruments and enjoying each other's company. So, I decided to go with an easy deed just outside my door.

The project:
Fetch in all my neighbors' bins (three per house - trash, green waste and recycling) from the curb before they could get home from work.

10 minutes - we live on a culdesac, and one of the five neighbors beat me to the punch.

Why bother?
It was an easy deed that didn't require us leaving our property (by much). Otherwise, see the previous post.

Worth it?
Sure! Plus it was a beautiful day and nice to enjoy the blue sky, cool weather and stiff breeze that FINALLY indicate some change in season around here!
