Green InsideOut Clients

November 7th, 2008 by InsideOut Solutions

Hey farmer farmer

InsideOut clients are thinking green!

InsideOut clients are thinking green!

Put away that D.D.T. now
Give me

Spots on my apples
But leave me the birds and the bees
Please!
Don’t it always seem to go
That you don’t know what you’ve got
Till it’s gone
They paved paradise
And put up a parking lot.

– Joni Mitchell
