Eliminating Plastic in the Kitchen // Surprise Holdouts

After a thorough go-through of our bathroom, I thought I had eliminated most of the plastic in our home. What a surprise when I realized that we still had one holdout – the kitchen. I realized that many of the items I use daily were still plastic! Somehow, the very items I touch most often, look at most often, and are in plain sight were still unattractive, depressing, non-compostable plastic pieces. How did I miss them? What could I do?

St. Johns River // Bartram Frolic // Riverboat Tour in Palatka, Florida

Every September, the Putnam County Bartram Trail in Putnam County, Florida hosts their annual Bartram Frolic commemorating William Bartram’s travels on the St. Johns River in 1774. This year’s frolic was the 245th anniversary of William Bartram’s travels through Palatka. I serve as the riverboat captain, commanding a 45 foot pontoon boat powered with twin 200 hp Yamaha outboard‘s on jack plates. This boat is a dream to operate, and the guided riverboat tours are a favorite part of the historic weekend.

RUNNING IN THE DARK // Deep Water Happy

I love running, and when my work schedule changed, I had to make some adjustments. One thing that was not going to change was the inclusion of running in my day! Here’s how to sneak in an early morning run. I’m sharing some accessories I carry with me on every run in the dark. These are pieces of equipment I have owned and used at least three years, so they are time-tested and proven.

APPLYING MINERAL SUNSCREEN // STREAM2SEA REEF-SAFE PRODUCTS // Deep Water Happy

Today, I’m demonstrating how to apply mineral sunscreen from Stream2Sea. Just like the Swahili face painting at Moyo in Cape Town, I’m having a bit of fun with the design to demonstrate how little you need for full coverage. I’m applying mineral sun protection from Stream2Sea that’s tinted! It’s is completely non-toxic and environmentally safe, and it’s packaged in completely biodegradable tubes of sugar cane resin!

India Hicks Closing Her Multi-Level Marketing Venture // Lifestyle Brand // Buy Now or Cry Later

As a frequent visitor to the Bahamas, Eleuthera specifically, I’ve been following India for years – her island lifestyle and endeavors were similar to my own. She surprised me when she introduced her branded goods at IndiaHicks.com, a multi-level marketing scheme, also known as a “MLM.” But, I understood completely she was selling herself and a lifestyle, and both are highly marketable.

Duped: Given a Fake Tourniquet for My Classroom During National Stop the Bleed Month // Teacher Appreciation Week

It’s the first National Stop the Bleed Month, it’s “Tourniquet Tuesday,” it’s Teacher Appreciation Week, and I’ve spent the last six months pressing for supplies for teachers in our school and accumulating Stop the Bleed training as well as equipment for my classroom, and somehow, my newly-issued classroom bleeding control kit contains one real and one counterfeit tourniquet. Where did I go wrong?
