GET GREEN BEFORE THE HOLIDAY RUSH!

This Saturday November 19th, join Leon County and America Recycles Day to make a serious commitment to declutterng your home and office!  Seriously, make your 2012 resolution right now: 'I will not bring home another electronic device until I clean out that box of miscellaneous electronic hardware in the back of the closet!'

Disclosure:  I have a box of StyrofoamTM peanuts in my garage waiting for some day to take them out to the recycling center on Apalahcee Parkway. (the same place where one can take all those non-working computer parts and peripherals--NOTE:  working or semi-working computers, monitors, printers, etc. can be refurbished at the Goodwill Store 2800 West Tennessee Street).
