How are you?? It is weird why your blogs don't update - never mind - here now. Yes I do believe there is a green streets in the US. Not sure if it the same concept but check out the Australian site and see.

Yes, my kind friends, the bloggy seems to forget about "Frugal Luxuries..." sometimes and it's a mystery why.

Hello Jules!!! No problem about the blogging, at all. In fact, I have a "Guilt Free" rule regarding sporadic blogging (being quite sporadic myself at times). My logic? Blogging is supposed to be ideas and journals of our life EXPERIENCES: The problems arise when we (i.e., I) spend too much of our life online blogging or browsing (guilty as charged). Sometimes, when I am getting not much done in real life, I simply must walk away from the computer for awhile and get a grip on my material surroundings (always a challenge).

Hello my darlin' Daisy Mum!!! So lovely,lovely, lovely to see your friendly face/name. Love the concept of the "Green Streets" philosophy and will google it here as well as the Australian site if need be, as you suggest
