    Just sent TXDOT an email for more and better sidewalks in my neighborhood on the East Side.  A lot of people need these sidewalks to get to the bus.

    Start raising chickens and reduce the carbon footprint for producing and transporting eggs.  Use chickens to eat your veggie and fruit scraps, and use their droppings as compost for a garden!
