I've started to notice something interesting out here in Eastern Montana. Most people who live here get annoyed or downright angry when the concept of living "green" comes up. They associate green with the Western part of the state: those tree huggers!! Those vegetarians!! Those democrats!!!

The funniest part is that these people are the "greenest" people I know. They farm their own food. They use every part of the beef they slaughter. They compost (ok, so they just throw their food scraps outside for the animals, but it counts!!). They make patch their clothes instead of buying new all the time. They go to bed early and rise with the sun.

But shhhhhhh! Don't tell them I said so.
