  Cotswolds Region - by Brenda Tharp  
 
This area of England is known for its golden stone - and all the villages in the area are built using it. The villages are very picturesque, with structures dating 400-800 years old in many cases. They are sagging, leaning, and still they stand! Very pretty lanes and windows with flowers, rose vines growing up sides of buildings. Lower and Upper Slaughter, Chipping Camden, Broadway, Stowe on the Wold, Stantonm and Bourton on the Water - are just a few quaint names of picturesque villages.

Green Tip #103

Save The World?

People sometimes think of "saving the world" as a pipe-dream - an over-ambitious goal. At this time in our history, though, you can quite literally save the world. The scientific community agrees that global warming is a serious problem - one that threatens the existence of numerous species. This is an issue that demands action right now. There is hope, though. As long as many, many people change their ways, we can change the course of history. Driving in a way that produces less emissions, saving energy at home, planting trees, and supporting green companies, are just a few ways you can truly save the world.
