“You’ll be my arms, and I’ll be your eyes”

Hi Folks:

If you haven’t seen this yet, it’s well worth watching. We first read about it in an article in the Huffington Post. In China two specially-enabled men, lifelong friends, are changing their world – one tree at a time. When he was three Jia Wenqi lost his arms […]

Being Green - 'Green' Fuel?

Hi Folks:

I came across both of the articles below on the same day, and both outline similar ideas. If you’re interested in environmental topics you’re likely aware of the process for converting used fry oil into biodiesel, and the process of creating fuel oil using bacteria. But this is […]

Being Green: Green Consumers

Hi Folks:

Friday once again, and time for this week’s ‘Being Green‘ post. The title for this post was inspired by a couple of articles I read this week. The first was, “It’s not easy being a green consumer“, and it begins with:

Being Green - Going Solar

Hi Folks: Before I get into this week’s ‘Being Green’ post, last Friday I talked a bit about ‘Modeling and Monitoring‘. I came across a link this week from the American Society of Landscape Architects on “Sustainability Toolkit: Environmental Models” that fits in with that post, so I wanted to mention it […]

Being Green - Connections

Hi Folks:

Happy Friday! Happy Earth Day, +1! Actually, as the saying goes, “Make Every Day Earth Day“. I saw an ad for a T-shirt once that said, “Love Your Mother. Good Planets Are Hard to Find.” It looked something like this:

It's not easy being green... is it?

Hi Folks:

Kermit the Frog sang:

“It’s not that easy bein’ green;
