Celebrating Fathers... and Families...

Hi Folks:

I’m old enough to remember when a family was considered to be a combination of a mother, a father and 1.8 children – although I was never sure which one of the kids lost out on that one. But if that was considered ‘normal’, my family was, and […]

You Like Me! You Really Like Me!!

Hi Folks:

So far as I know, Facebook was the first to introduce the concept of the ‘Like’ button to user posts and comments, and it’s such a good idea that it’s been adopted by others as well. Google+ uses the ‘+1’ button instead, but it’s the same idea. The […]

Being Green - The Future of Education

Hi Folks:

Saturday once again, and time for this week’s ‘Being Green‘ post. It’s usually posted on Fridays, but not always… 😉

Anyway, while my blog posts are, by definition, my thoughts and ideas, this week I’m going to dust off the old soap box on a topic […]

Being Green - 'Biophilic Design'

Hi Folks:

Friday once again, and time for this week’s ‘Being Green‘ post. The title for this week’s post came from a webinar I watched this week called, “What is Biophilia, and What Does It Have To Do with Sustainability and Illusions of Nature in Architecture?” It was the title […]

Being Green - Update

Hi Folks:

Friday once again! It’s also the end of the month, and that means our “Eating Our Way Through Victoria” post and my “Photo of the Month” post as well as our usual Sunday “He Says, She Says…” and Monday’s “Marcia’s Meanderings” posts are coming due as well! Going […]

Being Green - Green Walls

Hello, Dear Reader!

A few weeks back I did a post on roofing materials; one strategy for a roof is a ‘green roof’ or a vegetated roof. Green roofs have many advantages, but one need not stop there. Vegetated walls are also an option. Sometimes called living walls or biowalls, […]

Poetry Corner - Science as Poetry

Hello Dear Ones!

Mike and I are very much into innovation and inspiration. Anything fun, informative and uplifting nurtures us. As a result we find ourselves watching TED and other web videos rather than the television these days. When I saw the following YouTube video – attached here for your viewing pleasure – I […]

He Says, She Says...

Greetings, Dear Reader!

Thanks so much for stopping by!!

If you’ve read these posts before, you’ll know that every Sunday Marcia and Mike pick a common topic and write about it individually. Neither reads the other’s posts until both are finished. The title for this week’s talk, ‘The […]

Being Green - Social Networking

Greetings! Friday once again… where did the week go? Ah well, as the saying goes, there are 168 hours in a week; what you do with them is up to you. I was sitting at my computer, staring at a blank screen (that adamantly refused to write anything on itself), when my […]

Being Green: Body and Mind - The Olympics and TED

Hi Folks:

Well, another week has flown by! The Vancouver 2010 Olympics begin today, and there’s been a lot of effort put into making this Olympics the ‘greenest’ one ever. There are, of course, two opposing views on their efforts. On one side, Daily Planet has created an extensive chronicle […]
