Is everyone having fun with Climategate?  I sure am.  Anyone with a scrap of logic and interest in scientific history and the history of our planet has got to be having a laughfest at what is going on.  I found 100 Reason Why Global Climate Change is Natural.  It’s a great read.

What would this bright and determined young man have done if someone had stepped in and provided for his family when they could not provide for themselves?  Would he have accomplished something that benefited not only his family but his village as well? How I Harnessed The Wind Feed a man and he learns nothing.  […]

I am starting to see a disturbing trend with my friends. I am getting electronic Christmas cards all in the name of being green and leaving a smaller carbon footprint on the earth. While I applaud them for sending me anything at all, it distresses me to read that they are sending an electronic card […]

I’ve been researching different aspects of gardening and occasionally I run into a gem I just have to share.  I’ve been searching for information on vertical gardening.  I ran into a link that mentioned both the AeroGarden and Patrick Blanc and I just had to check.  Someone had posted, on an open blog, comments on […]

I work at a very progressive company. They totally support and promote employees working from home. This allows them to occupy two buildings instead of three or four. It saves on rent, it saves on resources. Their buildings are ‘green‘ and hold the LEED Silver Certification. It may not impress you, but impresses me. Recently […]

On the topic of programming…

Brilliant! Just brilliant! I am writing a post instead of commenting because I have a different spin on the whole programming issue to get off my chest. My partner-in-crime on this blog is truly brilliant. She has spoiled me horribly over the years by using the KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid) method. Now I’m a […]

They said, “the Barnett-Shale is going to produce jobs for years to come.” They said, “the Barnett-Shale is going to open new avenues for natural gas production.” They were wrong. Well.

In 2004 my home flooded. Not just a little either. Not as bad as New Orleans in 2005 and not as bad as Galveston in 2008. But it did flood bad enough to require moving out and rebuilding. What I learned from this experience is you have got to act quickly and you cannot rely […]

I keep hearing the US only has two percent of the world’s old, yet we use 25 percent of the world’s oil.  This is SO apples and oranges.  We don’t use 25 percent of the world’s oil.  We use 25 percent of the world’s oil production which is a totally different thing.  We need to  […]
