This Saturday, September 15, is Coastal Cleanup Day! Come down to one of our local beaches to help beautify the coastline and protect the marine environment by picking up trash. Bring your own reusable bucket and garden gloves, and be sure to have a hat, sunscreen, closed-toe shoes, and water to drink (preferably in a reusable bottle). The hours are 9 a.m. to noon, this Saturday! For more information, click on this link to Heal the Bay.

The Purloining of Prince Oleomargarine, by Mark Twain and Philip Stead
"There are so many things we don’t know, that we can’t possibly account for, but that’s kind of how life works. It might not seem that way yet, when you’ve had people telling you what to do and where to be all your life, but the reality is, when you make your own decisions, you never really know where they’ll lead, or what will come next. All you can do is make choices and move forward. And actually, what ends up happening is, the more you learn, the more you realize you still have to learn."
