Thank you for the welcome and information. I'll check out the Eco group. California is in one of its normal droughts, not sure if the coming expected rains will get the snow pack and water table levels back to normal. From my understanding, the drought is not caused by climate change but could possibley be made worse due to it.
Thank you very much for your kind greeting-I'm familiar with Bensalem as I grew up in Philly and the 'burbs and outlying communities were just 'up and running' population-wise when I moved away in '74. I am really looking forward to to corresponding with progressively minded individuals who are willing to accept responsibility to define their own lives and on their own terms. I hope you have a pleasing holiday, Ruth. Debb
