    Today, in broad daylight, I noticed gaslights flickering away at the front doors of several homes in my neighborhood.  Will I have the courage to speak up regarding this toxic waste of energy?  On another topic, it would be good to avoid palm oil in our food.  The cultivation of palm oil palms is destroying our planet.
