Re-tool

Setting up for the cold, damp season gives me time to contemplate upgrading or sometimes downgrading the contents of the house. At times I feel caught in a bind between green and expedient.

Picking up the latest and greatest whatever is worth careful consideration. I weigh the environmental price of, say, a new rice cooker against the environmental price of my time and productive energies.

Great-grandmother's 1870 nickel steel frying pan is the hand's down champion of value. The smallest, lightest, and fastest digital gear comes in second. All the stuff in between is negotiable, particularly if it recycles or can be repaired -30-
