windows efficiency plus

I was in a business networking meeting today and the conversation came out about environment and energy and how the real estate market is going to be affected if a proposed legislature gets through. Efficiency standards are going to make it very difficult to sell a home. Energy standards will have to be met for windows, insulation, roofs, etc. before homes can be sold including older homes. There is going to be clearing house set up to check out these parameters. There will be no normal home… Continue

Electric Vehicles for daily commuting!

Don’t get me wrong, I love hybrids. What I love most about the two hybrids we’ve had is just how often the gas engine is NOT running! It’s so quiet sitting at a stoplight without an idling engine or crusing down the road on only electric power. In fact, this got me thinking: why can’t I just buy an all-electric car?

I know what you’re thinking: electric cars are strange looking and slow, or they’re just too expensive (think Tesla!) Not true!! People have been converting normal… Continue

Fixing Education...

...as the Market marches toward the Future.

Is the “education system” in the USA “broken,” and if so, how does one “fix” it? By the standards usually applied in the USA to "efficiency, predictability. calculability and control," yes, it’s broken. The cost-per-student is going up; the “test scores” are going down. What to do? Simple: apply the tried-and-proven contemporary American method that is now applied to all “social… Continue

Michael Jackson & Galoway Kinnell

Michael Jackson's estate has chosen to bury the Indiana "King of Pop" in the "Promethean" casket which features 14-carat gold plated hardware and an exclusive double locking system. The interior of the casket is handcrafted by a master seamstress in Batesville, Indiana. The resulting casket is a tribute to the quality and craftsmanship of artisans in the areas of welding, polishing, metal working, and finishing fabrics.

This garish display of burial reminded me of a poem titled "The… Continue

Living a green life doesn’t mean you have to be a die-hard treehugger. A green life is as much about our health and well being as it is about the earth and our environment. A life with less disease and sickness through simple choices about the products we use and their impact on our bodies. We spend a lot of time at home in our kitchens. It’s the heart of the house and the one room we should consider when going green.

1. Use natural plant-based cleaners that do not contain harmful… Continue
