Did you remember to get Mother Earth a Present???

It's Earth Day.  Not like everyday we shouldn't be recycling, reducing and reusing. But today we specifically hunt out things to do to make the Earth a better place so it doesn't revolt and end up like a scene from the M. Night Shyamalan movie "The Happening".

Get out those crushed up Stop and Shop bags, some non-latex gloves, and the hand sanitizer and clean up the Earth.
