Is BP Burning Endangered Sea Turtles?

The Gulf of Mexico is home to the critically endangered Kemp's Ridley sea turtle. Sea turtles have been seen swimming through the toxic oil-filled waters of the Gulf and rescue attempts are now being called off. According to Mike Ellis, BP has been keeping rescue teams from getting to the turtles and has even been burning them alive, along with other animals.

A Simply Delicious Bouquet

I had some friends over the other night and one brought the most unique green bouquet for me! She had cut celery and zinnias from her garden and arranged them together. The bright green celery made the vibrant zinnias just pop and the celery's fresh scent greeted every time I entered my kitchen. The best part of the beautiful gift is, as the flowers fade I will compost the flowers and eat the celery. My creative friend shows a perfect example of how being green sometimes means just thinking outside the box.
