Have a wonderful 4th of July this year, viagra buy decease but consider skipping the where can i buy levitra fireworks.

I know, this has always been a favorite part of the celebration for me as well. But then I learned about all the negative environmental and health impacts that fireworks have. Heavy metals, chemicals in the air and water, and not even mentioning how scared it makes pets and wildlife with all the explosions.

So as much as we have enjoyed fireworks in the past, we have decided to adopt a different ritual this year.. outdoor movies! Our neighbor sets up a big, blow-up outdoor screen and using an LCD projector, we watch movies in our backyard. It is totally fun without the impact.

Some other ideas?

Go stargazing and count shooting stars.
Build a campfire.
Have a barbecue on the beach.
Watch fireworks previously recorded on You Tube!

Enjoy the holiday but maybe take a break from the kamagra buy drug boom! Boom! Pow! of the fireworks this year.

Waking up (early) to Sustainability

Last month, best viagra cialis I hit the open road for our island’s annual garden tour.  And unlike past years, buy cialis I thought I should embrace alternative transportation and bike to each one of the gardens (a 25 mile tour with hills, valleys and more hills).
