It's almost that time of year again, where we begin the arduous chore of entering for the Dream Home!! I'm out of the loop, but still LOVE HGTV & DIY!!!

All this talk about 'rags' leads into my MGTOTD:

Cloth Napkin and Dishtowel Green Tips:

1. Only wash when soiled. Most adults don’t really dirty a napkin after every meal.

2. Designate a place to store “in-use” napkins and use the same one until it is dirty.

3. If you have a large family, designate a napkin ring for each member to identify their napkin between meals.

4. Toss dirty napkins and dish towels in with other laundry.

5. Use eco-friendly laundry detergent.

6. Wash with cold water and line dry when weather permits.

I guess there are many references to that rectangular piece of absorbent cloth for drying and/or washing in the kitchen. My french grand-mère would refer to them as a "torchon" (mostly for drying) and/or "lavette!" Never-the-less, using cloth opposed to paper will keep us 'lean and green!!'

Coop: There will never be hurdles too high for your gait! In fact, when it comes to seeking something valued or desired, I put my money on you & Show Me! I trust that you'll be there in the finish!! Good luck when it comes to (Pine) hills, but from the look of that Rainbow, there will not be any high water to speak of!!!

Hi Coop: Thank goodness..YOU'RE BACK!! Hope you had a great time in San Fernado Valley walking through so much rich history there in the "First City of the Valley"! When you got tired of walking, did you take the "Trolley?"

Your poem was devine...loved it & acutally gave you a thumbs up for it...thank you!! Life is so full of Rainbows that color our lives with good times & especially good friends! This photo just reminds me of the promised once made, "that the earth would never be flooded again!" The metaphor works here with the thoughts of dreams and riches & travels along the Turquoise Trail!!!!

MGTOTD: RAG POWER! Use your old dishtowels and cut up old bath towels to clean up in the kitchen and around the house. That way, won't have to buy paper towels. You'll save money that way, and recycling that old soft cloth really works. It's more absorbent! Stronger than paper! It's cleaning the way your grandmother did...with rags. You don't use paper, and you save money.

My dear Katydid: I guess if I were to erect an authentic lighthouse, I would have to specify the erection of a brick tower capped with an octagonal iron lantern attached to maybe a 26-foot by 30-foot dwelling attached to the tower by a covered passageway. On completion, the tower would have to stand approximately 46 feet from grade level to ventilator ball, and would be outfitted with an array of fourteen lamps with reflectors situated at a focal plane of 103 feet, by virtue of the tower's location atop my private bluff. My white light would be visible every 90 seconds for a distance of 16 miles in clear weather conditions.

I guess I would have to work hard on keeping my lighthouse lean & green!!!

Hi Kat: Thank you for the scruptious belly-satisfying recipe! I can hardly wait to try it! In fact, I just bought ten pounds of my favorite apples ('cause they were on sale)!

THE RAINBLOW OF COLORS

"The rainbow of colors
So merry and bright
Each color has a purpose
Even black and white

The rainbow is so full
Of radiance and gleam
It sparkles and shines
Through every little beam

After a storm
A rainbow you'll see
With all the glaring colors
A rainbow there'll be

Then at the end
Your dream will come true
A pot of gold awaiting
All just for you!"
