By buying local you reduce the carbon footprint produced by trucking. 
In addition, you may find it more fun than grocery shopping, you may make some friends, you will find fresher and more organic choices, and you will find some live entertainment - music, shows, etc. depending on which event to attend. 
Why not give it a shot!?!?!
You may only lose one thing if you take the risk - weight!

green homes in texas: YouTube Thursdays - November 10, 2011 - 11/12/11 07:10 PM
So you aren't making videos yet huh? The only thing in the way is you, or shall I say, YouTube?
I have a few vlogs out there in the rain to help, including Making Videos 101.  I set up a YouTube account but as of today I added one that links to my gmail account. That means I have ZERO subscribers.
I made the change since the old one was attached to my yahoo mail account which caused me to toggle between email accounts, signing off and on - which was annoying.
My new channel is GreenHomeReatlySA.

green homes in texas: You Tube Advice Please - 11/11/11 09:34 PM
I need your help with Youtube and branding.  In June I set up a Youtube account for my vlogging. I had a personal account so I created another account for Green Home Realty, my brand. I find it annoying to toggle now as I have to log off and on to toggle between my gmail and youtube.  It's mainly only an issue when I am uploading as it takes forever.

I had the blessing of discovering my spiritual gifts - Visionary/Administrative Leader, Coaching Leadership (the ability to develop leaders) and Evangelisim/Outreach - in that rank order.
(Hang tight, the thankfulness is coming......)
I was inspired to go through the "Discovering Your Ministry" workshop as a result of my Costa Rica missionary trip this past summer.

green homes in texas: An Attitude of Gratitude: Ret. Msgt Manuel Criado - 11/02/11 01:02 AM
 
I've resisted celebrating El Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) since it originated as an Aztec holiday and I am a Christian. However, today my children and I talked about November 2nd being El Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) - a Mexican tradition that dates back 3,000+ years and thought about how much we miss my dad.
The kids had to make a school project for class tomorrow, which is already at school or I would have taken photos.  They each made a collage to honor my dad who passed away May 2010.  I was … (19 comments)

green homes in texas: Elevator Speech Contest - Cathy Bureau - 10/26/11 10:53 PM
When somebody asks me about what I do or how I am different, it is really important to be concise and brief.  That's not me by nature so I had to come up with something I would say to avoid losing attention span.  I've had this down pat for some time:
"I help you buy, sell, build or renovate to save you money on your utilities, improve the quality of your health with healthy indoor air quality, & increase the value of your investment."
I think it takes 10 seconds to say, which I've heard many say is the new time … (28 comments)

green homes in texas: Greater San Antonio, Texas - Public School Districts - 10/25/11 07:37 PM

San Antonio continues to experience rapid growth resulting in continuous campus re-assignments and re-districts.  If schools are of interest or concern to you, the homeowner, we ask that you to acknowledge this occasional variance and verify your actual schools with your school district directly by phone.
Home buyers should also be aware of “CAP & Transfer” policies. When a school is full, or near full capacity, it is “capped” resulting in the students being “transferred” to a nearby pre-assigned school. The schools that have this policy do their best to move your child back into attendance area school as … (4 comments)
