I've decided to expand this blog to include some personal posts.  Not every post will focus on ecothriftiness, but I'll try to keep any new info I learn circulating through this blog.

this makes me wonder . . .

I read a sign at the Hands on Museum (an awesome place to have a membership if you have a toddler).  It says, "Sitting in the yard with your dog?  Get up and take your dog for a walk instead!"  "Sitting with your dog burns 50 calories.  Walking your dog burns 175 calories."

I automatically thought to myself, "Well, it seems like it would be easier to sit with my dog for 3.5 times the amount of time I'd walk him and I've burned the same amount of calories!"
