MUST-USE NEWS from Credo Mobile — five steps to a smaller, greener barbecue footprint…

We look forward to Fourth of July celebrations, especially cooking and eating out-of-doors. In addition, it’s a mighty great opportunity to heighten green awareness. Show your hungry family and guests how to respect the environment, while enjoying it.

Happy Fourth!

JoAnn Chateau

JoAnn likes progressive politics and loves the canines. She writes fiction about Chester, the Alpha Bichon -- with a dash of humor and a dab of Poli-Sci. Her views and insights are tinted by a former profession in Counseling, Christian theological studies, and training in Library and Information Science. Retired now, JoAnn enjoys the creative life.


Chester is a scruffy little Bichon dog, with a congenial Napoleon Complex, and stars in "The Chester Chronicles." He sometimes reports independent Canine News -- NO corporate treats accepted, NO corporate bias. Woof!
