My city is making news today. Last night the city council voted to outlaw plastic bags. Here is the article from the local Newspaper http://www.mercurynews.com/ci_16859889?source=most_emailed . We are a large city (more than a million resedents) so I guess that is big news. You know what you will be seeing once a month on the blog from me now? A new grocery bag a month is my goal for 2011 then we won't be caught un-prepared in 2012.
