New Year's Eve

New Year's Eve

Last Day of 2015

Finally starting to feel like winter. Brrrrrrrrr.

And here we are, 
not even really cold yet
(knock on wood)

We don't go out for New Year's,
or stay up late,
or veer too far off the routine.

Is it a sign of aging?
A need for my routine?

No matter,
It is what we do.
Tomorrow will be

Stop the Pipeline

Thanks to our interconnected web of like minded people,

I received this letter and a link to Tell Governor Peter Shumlin to Stop the pipeline plans...

I signed it, will you? meg

The letter sent to the Governor last week signed by businesses, organizations, committees, and legislators requesting that the pipeline be stopped at 11 miles is now available for anyone to sign online. Important note: Businesses etc can still sign on this form, and we encourage you to do that if you can. If not, please sign as an individual. (Instructions are on the page.) Here is the link:

Please send the link to all of your lists, groups, friends and urge them to show the Governor the breadth and depth of our desire to put this pipeline behind us!

Thank you Shaina and Katelyn at Toxics Action Center for setting up this link!

And thank you everyone for your ongoing energy to do the right thing in Vermont!

An American (Governor) in Paris

Once again,

Sifting thru emails, updates, attachments about the fight against the Addison County, Vermont pipeline 
proposed by Canadian Gaz Metro dba Vermont Gas.

In the end, all those words,
another Thursday summary,
then the videos came through.

Forget the words,
you'll just gloss over anyway.

Here are a couple of twitter links as hearings continue about the proposed pipeline
over 130 million expected to be funded by ratepayers... york said no to the pipeline which is how vermont became a target...

The Governor of Vermont, Peter Shumlin, has been greasing the gaz wheels since the beginning. Somehow, in his comprehension, he seems to think fracking ok as long as it's in Alberta.
He also thinks land grabbing is cool as long as it's not in his neighborhood.
Residents, my neighbors have had to lawyer up against big Gaz. Hearings going on now.
We oppose the pipeline. As this fight progresses, we have to communicate to others.
Frackers never sleep...
