With all this talk of Going Green, Buying Green, Living Green, and Green being the new whatever, I’ve come to realize that, although we had no green, my grandmother was actually the ‘greenest’ person I’ve ever known.

My first years were spent living just as my forefathers had lived – roaming the green, rolling hills of what are now the states of South Dakota and Nebraska.Character is made of duty and love and sympathy, and, above all, of living and working for others.
