Green Festival

On Saturday November 11th we went up to SF to the Green Festival. It was great to be around so many people who think like we do. All the food was either vegetarian or vegan. All the exhibits were about conserving energy, doing clean business, making good food or clothes. It was really great. We're not as gung-ho as a lot of the people we saw there, but we're somewhere in between them and the rest of the "normal" world. It felt good not to feel like a freak.

They are producing a new car here now. It's all electric - you have to plug it in. But it goes up to 40 miles on one charge and gets up to 40 mph. Not bad! They say it comes out to 3cents per mile as opposed to an average of 59cents per mile for those of us who use gasoline. Zero Air Pollution - ZAPcars! Too bad it looks so lame. They're sure to improve on visuals in the near future.
