Copying Carbon Neutrality

I have mentioned my superstar cousin's blog in at least one previous post--klt:sketchbook. While I have followed her career with interest and awe, have loved to watch her business grow and gain well-deserved recognition, and eagerly await each new creation from her company klt:works, I have now taken to just plain copying her. 

Each Monday she posts about music, and I think I've purchased something from each musician she has mentioned (at least the ones I don't already own--because anything else would be silly).  On Fridays she posts about fabric, and I drool  over her eye for fabric and color.

Today she posted about a website she found about making your blog or website carbon neutral (see post here).  It appears that by planting a tree for each blog or website, you can take a step towards mitigating the effects of said blog on the environment.  Now I'm all for our dear Mother Earth, so I went to the Make Your Blog Carbon Neutral website and found the following info:

“My blog is carbon neutral” is an initiative, originally started in Germany by the “Make it Green” programme, that has the goal to reduce carbon dioxide emissions. We plant a tree for your blog and thereby neutralise your blog’s carbon footprint for the next 50 years! Everyone can make a small contribution to the environment. Every tree counts!"

And then... I copied her shamelessly (I'll bet she won't mind if you do too).  And I know 'Ole Mama Gaia loves her some tress!

And what does this have to do with teaching?  Nuthin'. And I started four sentences in a row with "and" (excluding the one-word-doesn't-count sentence).  Put that in yer pipe and smoke it!
