Buying an Environmentally Friendly BoatI am moving down near the water and I would like to buy a boat, ideally a motor boat. I was wondering if there is an eco-friendly way to go about this. Are their eco-friendly boats with motors? Any info or tips would be appreciated.

 

Shep and Adria (Border Collies)My Border Collies' names are Shep (6 years old) and Adria (9 months). They are both full blooded and rescued from the Great Lakes Border Collie Rescue. I adopted Shep as a 3 year old (could NOT have asked for a better dog!) - and I recently adopted Adria as a two month old puppy. Shep loves to help me around the barn, to accompany me while horseback riding, and to play! (Frisbee is his favorite!) Adria loves to rough house, to play with any toys possible, explore, dig holes, and cuddle.
