  1. I love the video 🙂 I can’t stand car horns and think they should be limited to 4 or 5 honks per month.

    You have so many articles to go through – I just read Abigail’s at i pick up pennies and really enjoyed it. I’ve been convinced for some time that a model of unlimited growth is unsustainable and a more balanced economy is what is needed.
