Rockford bulletin board

for building happier villages...where people easily find common interests.

 

This board is a tool for people finding what they share in common – interests, intentions, visions.  A place to connect, share, trade, organize.  All who want to build this happier village are welcome.

I am looking for a desk that was accidentally sold in a garage sale on Spring Creek Road in Rockford within the last year. A picture of the desk is in my profile picture. It is a desk my grandfather made when I was a teenager. It means so much to me and I'm sad that it was accidentally sold to a young teenage girl last year. Please, if you know the person that bought the desk or you are her, please please please contact me. I just learned of the sale yesterday and I'm heartbroken. I will gladly reward anyone that can help me find this desk so that I may talk to the new owner.

We changed ourselves and our block became Green.  This Green-Block Starter Kit emerged from the process that we went through. 

We hope to encourage many blocks to become Green and then for our Green Village to inspire other villages to become Green.

When I ask Henry (or John or Sally) what they can offer in the Marketplace & TimeBank, they often look puzzled.  Puzzled even though we all have enormous gifts we can offer one another.

Here are some ideas.

We have for years gathered on Saturday mornings with the common purpose of moving toward both inner peace and world peace.  

Bud Hayes and all of you in Inner Peace - World Peace came to mind when I saw this video, and so I want to share it with you: Is War is Over?  A Paradox Explained.  

Your views are important to me and I hope you'll comment.

Dear IP/WP folk,

We have decided end the group now, or as of last Saturday morning.  Enclosed as an attachment is a summary statement.

Hi Villagers,

When you're shopping this holiday season, please consider a gift I'm passionate about. It's a film I co-wrote and produced with a life-saving, anti-smoking story we can give to people who care about children -- parents, teachers, even a school you'd like to support. It's $15 to download the film. And for $35 you can gift a teacher or a school with the Educators Package (the film, Teacher's Guide, and soundtrack).

Pursuing Improve Everywhere's mission, they constructed a custom wooden lectern with a megaphone holster and an attached sign that read, "Say Something Nice." The lectern was placed in public spaces around...
