It is the time of year to reflect on the coming new year. The previous year, 2011 has had its triumphs, bumps and bruises.This site is mainly
comprised of complainers and arm chair know - it - all's. There are also some very intelligent contributors, ya ya I'm including you too phage. It
is also one of the fastest sources of up to date news articles on the net.
What I would like to know is what does everyone here do to make their home (meaning city, country, world) a better place to live?
I have done extensive volunteer work on an annual community festival as an organizer. I have been elected as vice president of the local chapter of
the Chamber of Commerce. I have chaired and organized one of the largest fund raisers for the local community. I have sat on the local recreation
advisory board and the hardest volunteer work I have done was assist (first contact) displaced family members during the worst forest fire in my
communities history, some 250 homes burned down and displaced thousands.
I really care for the residents of my community and I shovel snow from both my elderly neighbours driveways (and I can't stand one of them) every
winter as a kind gesture.
I care for my aged parents who occupy my basement. My wife works as a nurse,
I see many of you have participated in the Occupy movement. Tell me, (this is your time to brag) who are the movers and shakers on this site and what
have you done. Lets separate the men from the boys and the women from the girls.
Lets hear from you all, even good intentions count, cause we all got to start some where!
