Are suburbs becoming obsolete?

As a planner dealing with open space, land conservation and outdoor recreation and trails, the subject of land use planning, how cities and their suburbs are developed are increasingly on my mind. You hear more and more of trying to be carbon-neutral. The basic issue is sustainability, which is not even a passing thought for most Americans. The following article echoes some of my concerns and brings up the 100-mile rule (your daily needs, especially all foods, come from within a 100 mile radius)--a good quick read on the subject. . . .

I have a song playing intermittently in my head and can't remember most of the words or the artist, AND IT IS DRIVING ME NUTS! googling didn't help, HELP! It is a modern song, sung by a guy, about life, and a phrase contains reference to "cruising down Haleakala" (a dormant volcano crater on Maui). Please, who is the artist?

5 year plan now finished

Hooray!!! I finally finished that long term statewide outdoor recreation plan for Arizona that I have been laboring over for nearly 2 years. I am happy with the outcome and think it will be useful to many planner and resource types. Lots of data. The next one isn't due for 5 more years and I hope to be on to other things (retirement?) by then. It has been getting good reviews and has been approved by the Governor and the feds. It is available on www.azstateparks.com/partnerships/planning/planning.html

Now I am starting on the State Trails Plan for Arizona (another 5 year plan). This one should be a fun one too! I am looking forward to the public survey process and research (yeah, I am data geek and love to analyze numbers).

More glitches

For some reason I can't receive DSL still. Qwest may have to send someone out. I was just getting used to be able to jump on the Internet whenever I wanted.

Access to be back up Tuesday

Finally got the right person and Internet access at home should be back on by May 15 evening. Amazing how long it takes to find the right process/person in big companies.

Grocery bags

I just purchased a set of large reusable washable (nylon) grocery bags that open wide and easily clip to the sides of a grocery cart to keep them open while you shop. 2 bags fill the cart and you can fill them while you shop and the bagger refills them as you check out. I like these much better than the little cotton bags because they open so wide for filling and unloading and they have wide straps to carry them upstairs or from the car into the house. Much better than trying to carry multiple little bags. Bet the inventor is making lots of money.

week off

I took this past week off from work, to take a needed break and to get personal stuff done (house cleaning, taxes, filing). I like it!

I ordered a bunch of plants to replace those lost in the winter freeze, lots of forage plants for the tortugas. The iris are blooming, lots of gorgeous and different colors. One I have never seen before; all over cream with an orange tongue and delicate lacing of 24K gold on the throat; it looks unreal/fake. Hummers are out in force! I love this time of year.

C&D stopped by for lunch and a visit yesterday on their way down to celebrate with the racers. ;() Congrats to the racers!! Nice visit--wonderful to see family! I learned some new things about LJ and how to access my email account with PCS. YEAH! Thanx Dave.

Gorgeous day, warm and sunny, light breeze, iris are blooming, lots of birds, zebra tailed lizards are courting, birds are gathering nest building materials. I dust and scrub--SPRING is here.
