    This doesn’t mean anything, but I wanted to tell you that your blog absolutely rocks.

    I listened to Mayor Thomas speak at a Sutherland Blogger Briefing (which I keep trying to get them to invite you to!!) about their wind turbines. He says they generate enough power to support 6,000 homes.

    I often wish I lived closer to the big city, so that I could attend more events like the HEAL Utah event.
