What Are Some Great Cleaning Tips for Those Short on Time?

There are many great neighborhoods in Boston and the surrounding areas and the city also has it's fair share of tough neighborhoods. One warning on Southie (South Boston): great location if you work in downtown and definitely cheaper, yet stereotypically unfriendly to people of color. I have a number of friends who had issues with getting called names or threatened while walking down the streets or coming out of local businesses. If you are white and all of your friends are white, then you may be okay, yet if you are more integrated into the real, multicultural world of the US (and of Boston), this may not be the friendliest place to live or for your friends to visit. Maybe it has changed since I lived there two years ago. I hope so. That would be good on Boston and Southie.

Thank you for highlighting the disruptive properties of this chemical. I also love that you made suggestions for alternatives at the end; too many media outlets tell you all the bad and then provide no alternatives. While I agree with most, bamboo fabric is not as eco-friendly as it has been reported in the past. While it is a renewable resource the process of turning it into fabric is less than eco-friendly.

I LOVE the fence. I've been trying to figure out how to enclose my back yard in an appealing way that won't break the budget and is green. Do you have any advice for someone who wants to create the same look? How tall is your fence? Where did you source the bamboo? I'd love any advice and/or guidance. Thanks!

Durham, NC. Farms surround this small city and many restaurants use locally sourced ingredients, we have a brewery that uses all local ingredients, there's a new *free* bus along main street linking Duke University to Goldenbelt, an artist studio community in an old warehouse, the local communities are VERY active in making this a better and better place to live and on top of it all, housing is still inexpensive and the job market is bouyed up by the presence of multiple universities and RTP.
