ISLAND LIFE SHORTS
To-do chores

Advertiser Staff

If you have trouble keeping track of household chores, keep a room-by-room to-do list in a journal, say Mary Jo Rulnick and Judith Burnett Schneider, authors of "The Frantic Woman's Guide to Life: A Year's Worth of Hints, Tips, and Tricks." Write down all those tasks from patching and painting to sorting through that ton o' toys. When you have a free moment, read your list and pick a repair, any repair.

FINAL WORD

"Most of us base our contentment on our circumstances, on our feelings or on other people. However, true contentment is separate from our circumstances. Contentment is a state of the heart, not a state of affairs."

Linda Dillow | author of "Calm My Anxious Heart: A Woman's Guide to Finding Contentment"



SAVE THE PLANET



PLAN B FOR EARTH

Rising temperatures, falling water tables, shrinking forests, melting glaciers, collapsing fisheries and rising sea levels what's a civilization to do?

Earth Policy Institute president Lester R. Brown outlines a survival strategy for the world in his book "Plan B 2.0: Rescuing a Planet Under Stress and a Civilization in Trouble" (W.W. Norton, $16.95). See www.wwnorton.com.
